Diet Chef - Week 2

Compared to week 1, week 2 of Diet Chef has been hard. I'm starting to envy what Chris and C are having to eat and I feel like I really want to stray. Anything that I haven't written a bit about is a repeat of a meal I had last week.




Monday
Breakfast: Original Muesli Bar 199cal
didn't enjoy this at all, taste or texture-wise. I did eat it all though! One of these days I'll begin to like healthy tasting foods!

Lunch: Creamy Pesto Pasta Pot 236cal
This didn't smell appetising but it tasted beautiful. It was very creamy and the pasta was so soft.

Dinner: Minced Beef Hotpot 275cal
I had no complaints with this at all. The mince was perfect and veg was soft. I'd definitely eat this again.

Snack: Cranberry Protein Bar 121cal
This was chewier than I thought it would be but it has a lovely berry flavour.



Tuesday
Breakfast: Vanilla & Banana Porridge 253cal
This is the second time I've had this and although the texture puts me off a little, the addition of sliced banana helps!

Lunch: I slacked today and made my own fruit salad as I was out and had no lunch-y Diet Chef items that I could take with me!

Dinner: Italian Bolognese (I added linguine & mushrooms) 449cal
This was so delicious. It was full of flavour and very like the bolognese I usually make at home.

Snack: Sweet Maple Popcorn 111cal
I didn't expect to like this as much as I did. There was a nice kick of flavour.



Wednesday
Breakfast:  Treacle & Pecan Granola 196cal
Again, another texture that I can't get to grips with. I can't fault it for flavour or how moreish it is.

Lunch: Curried Parsnip Soup 174cal
I loved this. It had delicious, strong flavour and I definitely think I'll make it from scratch in the future.

Dinner: Chicken Chasseur (I added mangetout & mushrooms) 256cal 
I expected the chicken to be dry but I wrong. The sauce was delicious too.

Snack: Cheese & Onion Flavour Bites 105cal




Thursday
Breakfast: Pink Apple & Cinnamon Granola 193cal
Although I'm rubbish with breakfast textures, I did like the kick when I bit into a piece of dried apple.

Lunch: Strawberry Milkshake 200cal
I didn't expect to like this but it was full of flavour. So easy to make too! 

Dinner: Lamb Hotpot 275cal
Similarly to the minced beef hotpot, this was delicious.

Snack: Stem Ginger Oat Biscuits
I'm usually not a fan of ginger (having to force myself to eat ginger biscuits with morning sickness put me off) but these were okay!



Saturday
Breakfast: Luxury Muesli 149cal
I'm beginning to sound like a broken record when it comes to breakfasts but hopefully I'll start feeling a bit better about them by the end of the 4 weeks!

Lunch: Lemon & Herb Bulgar Wheat & Couscous Pot 259cal
I wasn't a fan of this and I felt like I was forcing myself to eat it.

Dinner: Beef Meatballs (I added linguine and mushrooms) 426cal
The had a lovely flavour. The sauce was very tomato-y but a bit greasy.

Snack: Paprika Flavour Bites 109cal



Sunday
Breakfast: Original Granola 248cal

Lunch: Spiced Bulgar Wheat & Couscous Pot 252cal
Similarly to above, it wasn't to my tastes.

Dinner: Pasta Bolognese 261cal
I loved this. There wasn't much difference between this and one I'd make at home. I was surprised by it.

Snack: Sour Cream & Chive Flavour Pretzels 99cal

Yes, I must admit that I do still feel better and less bloated on the diet but I'm seriously craving a big home-cooked dinner! 


Until next week!
