    Just checked the microwave and I have Pork, chickpea, tomato, chilli and olive stoup (a cross between a soup and a stew) which cost about 60p a portion!
    I'm on new meds and they have really taken my appetite away

    I managed to eat most of it and it was really tasty.
    I just miss being hungry and wanting to eat. I used to be a sturdy 100kgs and enjoy my food and now am 60kgs and I can go all day and not be bothered about food which is really sad

    Pasta Carbonara & salad as i'm back on my diet. It's a diet packet Carbonara so not as nice as it first sounds.

    No need to get carbonara from a packet. Just chop up and fry some bacon, onion, peppers and mushrooms. Cook some pasta (I like tagliatelle with carbonara), drain it and stir in the bacon and veg. Meanwhile beat up a few eggs, stir in some grated parmesan (or Gran pedana) and pour over the hot drained pasta. Stir it all up for a minute (the heat from the pasta is enough to cook the egg) and serve it up.

    The mistake most people make is by adding cream - there's no cream in a proper carbonara.

    Today we had spag bol with a Lloyd Grosman sauce because I was feeling lazy. Tomorrow I'll be doing peri peri chicken (with an Aldi peri peri sauce and some tilda rice on the side). It's a doddle - just dice some chicken, onions, peppers, mushrooms, courgettes, aubergines, etc, stir in the sauce and bake for about 25 mins.

    We had lamb steaks, roast potatoes, tenderstem broccoli, carrots, sugar snaps and asparagus.

    I say we, but I didn't have any lamb as I don't like it.

    I'm picking at tuna and tomato salad. I think I prefer the thought of the soup mentioned earlier, and SailorSam's homemade bread.

    We just had spaghetti bolognese with loads of chillis added to it. We don't eat spaghetti though so we cut cabbage in to ribbons as an alternative.

    I also fried some kale in coconut oil and added it to the top as well
