Well what have you had - or having for tea tonight?

Well what have you had - or having for tea tonight?

Well tonight I have had a really really tasty tea. Breaded cod with broccoli cauliflower and parsnip in a homemade cheese sauce with chilli and sweet potato mash. (not tried sweet potato mash before)

The picture is pre cooked.

Since starting on this site I have come out of my comfort zone in relation to vegetables - other than peas as i wasn't a real veg lover. I am now giving most veg a go and enjoying the experience.Even Mr T enjoyed it and he is a fuddy duddy.

So what have you had or having tonight? Still need to progress and try something new. 😀

Oh that's lovely. Just thinking about it it must be over 20 years since Mr T and I went on holiday.

It's my own fault I won't leave my dogs in kennels and they are at an age now they are too old to leave. 😀

Keep warm 😉

I eat a Paleo diet so I had a steak, 3 boiled potatoes with a few slivers of butter, artichokes (in a jar) and a small portion of carrots. I cooked myself a corn cob and left it on the stove and forgot about it until my husband showed it to me a hour later!!

Hi TeganSara not sure what a Paleo diet is but your meal sounds delicious I love steak have it at least once a week. Sorry about the sweetcorn - oops!😁

Paleo is good for if you have autoimmune disease, and it cuts out gluten, grains (no rice! no bread!! no pasta!!!), beans and most dairy (my grassfed butter is a small and acceptable cheat). It focuses on meat and veg. It works for me, but we're all different.

Well done for increasing your veg intake, it will do you a world of good. Look out for all the different ways you can buy and eat veg. As well as jars of artichokes, I like jars of roasted red peppers - too good to be considered a veg I think!

Hi Tegan

thank you for your email I appreciate your time responding.

Interestingly in my 20's I was diagnosed with a condition called M E which is myalgicencophalomyelitis.

I was really ill and I was sensitive to all foods.I had total food intolerance. I lost so much weight I was too weak to mobilise and my weight plumited to 5 stone. At 5 9inch you can only imagine how I looked. My immune system didn't exist. Still slightly dodgy to be honest.

I remember with clarity that Mr T had to carry me to the bathroom I was so weak. At that time this wasn't a well known condition and little understood.

Not to dramatise it all family thought I was dying in front of them and to be frank I thought I was dying. My GP was pulling his hair out.

Anyway with a correct diagnosis and correct management I bounced back but it probably took 5 years.

I was very sensitive to anything I ate. I couldn't look at a vegetable never mind eating it.However in time i have gradually been able to add more foods to my diet and know eating a relatively normal diet.

Interestingly I am probably eating similar to you. That's why I find your diet interesting.

Keep warm Tegan 😀

I have heard a lot about ME and it is a confusing one - it's so clearly related to autoimmune issues and yet I still haven't seen it truly classified. I'm glad you are doing better these days but I know it must still have lasting effects on you.

Happy to talk to you more about Paleo if you're interested. It's not the approved NHS way to lose weight but I have seen a lot of anecdotal evidence for it helping people with AI disease and I work in the area so I have spoken to many people who have used it.

You certainly can't take health for granted, can you! Take care :D

I was home later than I expected so my fallback dinner was mushroom stroganoff with wild rice. Its a ready meal from morrisons but very filling. Had some butter beans with it for extra protein & fibre.
