    I've got a Betty bossi veg twister (like a spiralizer but simpler. I like making pasta-esque meals with it. So far celeriac is my most successful faux spaghetti.

    I think @Brunneria would like this. She introduced me to the idea of green smoothies. That gives me an idea. Will get back on to these as I have a lot of veg in the fridge at the moment.

    I am new to all this and still working out what is good and what is not :)

    Breakfast - nothing

    Lunch - sandwich of 2 x slices Hovis wholemeal bread with thin smarter of sunflower spread and 5 small slices of Pepperoni. Some whole queen olives and a tea, no sugar with milk.

    Dinner - 2 x Bratwurst sausages, 80g of sprouts, 80g of peas and a tea with no sugar and semi-skimmed milk.

    Not a well planned day today.

    Due to a bathroom time warp (how DOES that happen?) I lost 15 mins this morning.
    The knock on effect was that both B and L were cheese and ham slices.

    D: 2.5 good sausages and cauli cheese followed by strawberries and cream.

    Still, weekend tomorrow. Hopefully I will feel less like a limp dishrag and more like standing in the kitchen. It's been a looooong week.

    Check out Amethyst's post back up a few.... it's about spiralizing veg and fruit to replace noodles, rice, pasta etc... I love making pasta from courgettes - it's delicious... when you are on solids again it might be nice for you... :)

    It's a lovely idea... I make courgette pasta with my potato peeler - it slices lovely thin strips - sort of like pappardelle... :)
