Step 1 of Planning!
As I said yesterday, my biggest downfall is when I am not organised and I don’t have food ready to go. So today I have cooked tonights dinner – chicken Dopiaza (from an old Slimming World recipe leaflet I have), and a new dish from the Supervalu website – Mexican Leek and Black Bean Chilli for my batch cooked food to have to freeze and in the fridge for when I’m hungry.
I have been making this Three Bean Chilli from the Supervalu website over the past while and have been eating it topped with a small bit of cheese, and it doesn’t need a side like rice as it is so filling. And it is delicious. After the first time I started to add my own ingredients as to whatever I had in the fridge, and also I found I needed to probably triple the amount of spices that I put in – I like strong flavours!
Both of them are vegetarian and actually both from The Happy Pear, it is just that I got them from the Supervalu website. One of the things that I want to do is to make new healthy recipes, so that I don’t get bored with the same meals all the time, even though I’m actually ok with eating the same food over and over again lol.
Delighted to have some food batch cooked now, and my lunch ready to go as well. I found that I was picking at chocolate non stop while cooking the dinners so this means I will be able to get my dinner first and then cook for everyone else without picking.
