    I haven't weighed myself since before Christmas and don't plan to until the end of the month when hopefully some of the extra pounds will have come and gone.

    As a tip for anybody using Greek yogurt, the Tesco one in the 1kg rectangular pack is much nicer, thicker, than the half kilo packs. Plus much cheaper at £1.55 rather than 90p x 2 for the smaller ones.

    My wife makes her own Greek yogurt. There are two big tubs of it festering under a towel in the kitchen right now.
    Advice; it rhymes with mice. Advise; it rhymes with wise.

    I tend to buy my G yogurt in either Lidl or Aldi, they used to have huge tubs in Lidl, really nice yogurt, but they stopped them about 6 months ago, Iceland has a nice one Lakeland I think it`s called, but I have to rely on my friend to get it as I don`t shop there.

    discovered cauliflower rice today, really like it. Now just have to find a way to make it cheap and not time consuming

    I just put say a quarter, cut in half in food processer stalk an all, blitz, then scrape out with a spatula, 7/8 mins in micro. Then rinse the processer out under running water.

    Hummm so many reports of it being a faf on the internet that doesn't seem that bad.
    Been really craving carbs after no rice, pasta, bread or potatoes for ages, gave in and made a pie with left overs today.

    Thoroughly recommend Aldi Greek Yoghurt. White tubs about 500ml. But I have never tried shopping in Lidl yet.

    It`s simple with a processor, perhaps they were doing it by hand chopping.
    I have really slipped the last week so back tomorrow, posting my meals,
