This week’s resolution is another food-related one! Last week Jason mentioned that he’d like to lose some weight and get fitter, and so I promised that I’d work on making the meals we eat during the week ahead healthier and cleaner.
I got started on our healthy-eating resolution over the weekend, and have to admit that the first meal I cooked and served up to Jase was a failure of epic proportions! It was roasted garlic mushrooms, giant couscous with courgettes, and a salad of lettuce, carrots and red cabbage. Jase tried hard to feign enthusiasm for it, but eventually his hatred for salad & couscous won out. He looked so miserable, I took pity and made him a sandwich to eat instead.
Jason’s thoughts on the dish? Direct quote…’It was horrible.’ ;)
Looks like I’m going to have to get creative to stick to this resolution! Here’s what’s on our new, healthier meal plan for the week ahead…
Tom Kha Gai (Thai coconut chicken soup)
Homemade pasta with a roasted red pepper sauce
Turkey meatballs with a spicy tomato sauce & pasta
Roasted butternut squash soup
Strip steak (one steak shared between us both) served with sticky rice, pak choi & sesame seeds
I’m also going to make a batch of Deb’s famous granola bars for us to snack on during the week, and have bought plenty of fruit and natural yoghurt for our breakfasts.
Are you starting off the week with a resolution of your own? :)
