Hello again ,
So today , I had people over for a meal ( had been scheduled long before me deciding to go on a diet ) so it was a bit tricky in terms of what to cook , should there be pudding and will I be able to still be good ?
I have decided to cook chilli con carne , which is a relatively healthy meal - just put all the sides on different plates so everyone was free to put as many or as few calories on their plates as they felt like (and was able to keep my secret - secret ) . I have served myself a smallish portion and skipped the cheese , tortilla chips , wrap and just had the avocado and bit of yogurt - instead of all the available options .
From the cheese platter , I just had some fruit and as it was a sharing thing, no one noticed .
I am , by no means saying that being on a diet is something no one should know , but I also think in a situation like this , when you have guests - probably not fair to ' put ' everyone on a diet too . ... I like cooking and socialising so this will still be part of my day to day life , so I was wondering if anyone has any thoughts , tips on how to still stay on track when you are out , or at a dinner party or having people over ??
