If you are following me on Instagram you may have seen me use the hashtags #MakeoverMenu and #projectHila. The reason for these hashtags? I am trying, yet again; to lose some weight and get fit and this time I am doing it with one on one help and guidance of Rael Kopping over at Makeover Menu.
I am doing something I haven’t done in a really long time, I am planning my weekly menu and 2 days in, I am sticking to it.
Last night I got home from swimming with a killer headache, cultivated throughout the day. I assume it is mostly a result of sitting under florescent overhead lights for the first time in 3 weeks but after a week of junk food (you know, because I will never get to eat junk ever again for all eternity), there was probably some detoxing involved.
It was sooo tempting to say “screw it” and get take-aways but I need this to work, so I am making it work.
The husband also feels he needs to join me because:
a) He realises that it’s not supportive if he eats whatever he wants while I stick to whatever I need
b) He feels he needs to lose a few inches
My biggest issue with him is getting him to eat veggies, so I just through them into the mix and made it very difficult to pick them out…muahahaha.
I have used frozen veg in this recipe for convenience and recent studies show that frozen veg can sometimes be more nutritious than fresh. However, feel free to add any veg you like to this dish.
