If you don’t have a pressure cooker, I thoroughly recommend that you put one on your Christmas list for Santa. They make cooking so easy. The kids had me running around all day. By 5pm, the dinner I had planned to have in the oven by 3, was still in a variety of tubs in the fridge. Out came the tubs, a few handfuls here, a few handfuls there, all in the pressure cooker, lid on and away you go. 45 minutes later…..the picture. I served it up to the kids with brown rice but I had it as it was. It was a kind of goulash. Everyone loved it!
Here’s what I ate today. Still no sugar and definitely not missing it. Tonnes of energy thank goodness but I may reappraise that when I go to Crossfit at 6am having just finished a workout at 8pm.
Lemon water on waking.
Breakfast – my mango pancake as posted on Facebook earlier. I could have eaten this three times over.
Snack – a banana. I had a long call today.
Lunch – green salad with cucumber, peppers, tomatoes, herbs and salt and vinegar roasted cashews.
Snack – celery and chocolate hazelnut spread (it’s still going strong)
Dinner – pressure cooker goulash made with local beef, onion, garlic, cumin, fresh local tumeric, paprika, cayenne pepper, local spinach, zucchini/courgette, local butternut squash and tomatoes.
Off to dream about my mango pancake! (For those not on Facebook, here’s the recipe, 1 whole egg, 1 egg white, a small mashed mango, 1 heaped tablespoon of ground almonds, tablespoon of shredded coconut and a pinch of nutmeg. Beat it all together and fry in coconut oil.)
Will tell you all about the kitten and the tent in the back garden for my husband tomorrow 😉
