Here we go for week number three on the Tony Ferguson Weight Management Plan.
When I tell you it's really easy and convenient, you have to believe me, it is.
I have been to and fro the hospital a lot, as well as studying, alongside all the usual driving around in circles with the kids. The humdrum of life. NOT having to think about food is easy.
That said, I have been really enjoying the planning, the shopping for, the cooking of, and the eating of fresh whole foods for the evening meal.
I shopped at the start of the week off a meal plan. When we get home (late), I get the kids to have their baths and showers, whilst I put some chilled music on, get my apron on, and cook.
The chopping and the preparing is therapy.
The meals I have picked from the Tony Ferguson cookbooks are from scratch, but are all quick and easy. Perfect.
Monday - Asian Beef Stew
Tuesday - Turkey Keema Curry
Wednesday - Chicken Schnitzel
Thursday - Mini Meatloaves
Friday - Thai Fishcake Salad
Saturday - Eggplant Lasagna
Sunday - Corned Beef with "Mash"
Notatoes - Fauxtatoes - a substitute for mash, made from cauliflower - perfect for low carb recipes!
- 1 Medium head cauliflower, cut into florets
- 75g low fat ricotta cheese
- 1 clove garlic, crushed
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Chives, chopped
- Steam cauliflower until soft and very tender.
- Place in a blender or food processor with the ricotta cheese, garlic and salt and pepper.
- Process until really smooth.
- Garnish with chopped chives and cracked pepper.
And weight loss wise? I am pleased to report that I lost...only 0.7kg this week, but I am still very happy.
