This will be a one off post as I realise this is the C25k forum and not the healthy eating forum !

I made my first dinner recipe from the book tonight , absolutely delish πŸ˜¬πŸ˜‹

It was Roasted butternut squash stuffed with puy lentils , red and green peppers, onion , garlic, mushrooms, feta and pine nuts, and smoked paprika.

With roasted tender stem broccoli

Really really nice 😬

Birdlady64Graduate in reply to Instructor57

Me too. I find it really relaxing and a great way to de-stress.

Nearly as good as running😁

Instructor57
Instructor57Graduate in reply to Birdlady64

Yes it is , if I have a day off I will sometimes spend all day in the kitchen and batch cook , portion it and freeze for when I'm working late

Birdlady64
Birdlady64Graduate in reply to Instructor57

Great minds. Whatever I cook at weekends I make double, triple quadruple amounts and freeze for midweek use

Instructor57
Instructor57Graduate in reply to Birdlady64

Yes, I never cut recipies down if it's something i can freeze 😁

That looks absolutely wonderful! My book came today and I’ll be studying it this evening. I feel a food shopping trip coming on and it doesn’t look like it’s going to be cheap! πŸ™„

Instructor57
Instructor57Graduate in reply to Jools2020

Yes, write that shopping list 😁

Some good recipies πŸ‘

Instructor57
Instructor57Graduate

It was good ,

I won't be cooking from it every day as you say , not always cheap ! Also most of the recipes are for 4 but at least you can scale it down

Maybe it isn’t that cheap, but your health is well worth spending the money on! Looks a great book. Thanks for the post. Feel like that wouldn’t fill me up though. 🀣Might need some extra feta!

Instructor57Graduate in reply to TopCat22

Yes, could end up a bit expensive, but , as you say , it's your health and I'm only feeding one !

Ian, do you want to come round mine and cook me a meal?

Instructor57
Instructor57Graduate in reply to IannodaTruffe

Haha πŸ˜πŸ‘

As I say , I actually do like cooking !

Trouble is, I like baking as well but that's bad news when you live alone πŸ˜‚

Lol! 🀣

You should read β€œWhy We Eat (Too Much)” by Dr Andrew Jenkinson. It will soon put you off eating cakes!

It’s the most interesting book I’ve read in a long while and I learnt so much I didn’t know (and I thought I knew a lot about nutrition! πŸ˜…) It will put you off sugar, processed food, vegetable oils and calorie-restricted diets that’s for sure.

Instructor57
Instructor57Graduate in reply to TopCat22

Sounds like a book I should read !

Although I only really bake bread these days , and even then not often

πŸ˜‚

Yay, you posted one! πŸ˜ƒπŸ‘πŸΌ

Oh my days, that looks right up my street πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹

There's only a small amount of diced pepper πŸ˜‹

Tinytears60
Tinytears60Graduate in reply to Instructor57

Yes and could substitute with something I’m sure - maybe sweet corn 🌽

Looks great Ian...Is the cookbook mainly veggie ? I’d be very interested if it is. Thanks for sharing 😊

That is making me hungry just looking at the photo (and I have just eaten breakfast!!).

I hope it tasted as nice as it looked.

I saw your post yesterday and have ordered the cookbook. I have been inspired. I enjoy cooking but don't seem to find the time some days. I find it difficult to cook for one. I do usually batch cook when I have the time. How can I create more hours in the day?

I am actively trying to put on weight. I lost a stone through the stress of my husband leaving and still weigh less now than I did at college 20+ years ago. Well a new decade starts in 2 weeks. They say life begins at 40, so lets see if it does.

Instructor57
Instructor57Graduate in reply to EThomas

Haha, sorry to make you hungry just after breakfast πŸ˜‚

And yes, it tasted so good !

I hope you like the book !

I sometimes struggle to find the time some days , but I'm self employed and can usually finish early 😁

Your right though , it's difficult sometimes to cook for one (I had similar issue when my wife left 😐)

I also batch cook when I can .

Hope you enjoy the book and fingers crossed for you new decade 🀞😬

I also struggle to keep my weight on - just my metabolism I think as I have a really good appetite! πŸ˜€ I end up eating far too much unhealthy food ( especially as snacks) which is not the answer!πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ

Yes, I'm trying to get back into health eating !

I did it once about 2 and a half years ago and lost 2.5 stone ! But then slowly 1 stone came back before I started running , I have now managed to loose half of that
