I'm having a weird week! Wanting to try different things and change everything! I've decided to try and have more healthy fat and less carbs on SOME days, just to experiment.
On Sunday I made cauliflower rice (cheaper to make than buy!) and I had this with slow cooker pork stew! Bf had normal rice, and I wasn't even slightly jealous as the texture was great.
For dinner yesterday evening I had an egg "pizza" which I think I saw a variation of on the forum and without reading how it was made and it was weird, delicious and NOT a pizza lol.
I also made "egg muffins" to have for breakfast today, to substitute my usual porridge or toast etc.
I've been experimenting with having different things for breakfast to see what keeps me fuller for longer and have bought some kellogs "legends" porridge packs which have like spelt and chai seeds or something in it for a change and to compare to normal porridge.
Two pieces of wholemeal toast with real butter, was the winner weirdly. Not sure if it's just because I considered it such a massive treat that I was mentally satisfied for longer.
It's also become a habit that after dinner I use my remaining allowance for a piece of chocolate. This has suddenly become "as much chocolate as I can have with my calories". So it's going back to ONE treat, not several with "no treat Tuesday" and "super exercise Saturdays" to try and curb this habit/start the week off well.
On top of all of this I've decided to change my calorie intake from 1600 to 1800 as my NHS BMI calculator suggests 1770+, so I'll see if this makes me gain weight and if I do need to stick with and cope with eating at 1600 instead
Just sharing some crazy ramblings, I think it's all a matter of trying to see how it goes! Hope everyone else has had a lovely week so far!
