Advantages i enjoy food
Disadvantages some options are unhealthy!
I think you all know by now that I love my food and even though I am trying to lose weight and eat a bit healthier, I still need to eat. My son is a fussy eater and although I am fussy about certain foods, I am quite open to trying things. I have my favourite foods though..*Pasta - most pasta products are a hit with me from lasagne to spaghetti and macaroni to pasta bakes. I like pasta with sauces and sometimes back the packet stuff to use as a side with our dinner. I often make up a pasta dish with fusilli pasta, tuna, salad cream, peppers and chilli powder which is delicious when eaten cold. Pasta is a cheap and reasonably healthy food that goes with many meals or alone.
*Yoghurts - I nearly always have yoghurts in our fridge. Muller are probably the best but expensive so I only buy them on offer. The flavour of yoghurt I prefer depends on my mood as sometimes I want something light and fruity whilst other times something more indulgent is called for. My favourite yoghurts are the King yoghurts from Lidls which cost under £1.50 for 12mini pots. Yoghurt over the top of fruit makes a tasty dessert or breakfast.*Croissants - I suppose eating croissants brings back holiday memories as they always taste so yummy on holiday as part of a continental buffet! I buy a small pack from Asda usually and heat 2 in the oven for a few minutes for crispiness. I then spread some butter and strawberry jam on and its simply delicious! Not very good for me though!
*Cream of Chicken Soup - I don't mean the Heinz one..I mean proper soup you get in a Chinese restaurant! A restaurant near me does a delicious soup and whenever we visit, I always order this as my starter. Its thick and full of tasty chicken pieces..you can't beat it!*Bread - probably an unusual choice and I know how much calories it contains but I can't help it. I've bought cheaper bread as we go through a lot of it in our house but nothing compares to Warburtons Toastie Loaf. I use block butter and this seems to hold together unlike other breads. It always tastes fresh and moreish. I like bread in sandwich or toast form with various toppings/fillings and also with Supernoodles, curry etc. Give me a piece with my meal and I'm happy!
*Roast Beef Dinner - I suppose this entails quite a few different foods. Our roast usually consists of some nice roast beef from the butchers, Aunt Bessies frozen mask, carrots, yorkie puds and some gravy. I can whip this meal up in under 10mins and its filling and satisfying. Nothing like a wee dessert of some kind to finish though.*Fajitas - this is a weekly treat in our home. I buy the Old El Paso fajita kit and a pack of stir fry chicken from the supermarket. I always have frozen peppers in the freezer so its just a case of frying up the chicken in some oil, adding everything in and heating up the tortilla wraps. Our fajitas are very tasty and moreish and moreso that the ones in restaurants as I can prepare them my own way. Some sour cream and chive sauce goes down a treat for dipping.
*Pancakes & Sausage - McDonalds style! Ok so not actually healthy but oh so yummy! Once a month now me and Ryan will head to McDonalds and treat ourselves to breakkie. The pancakes are always fluffy light and the sausage goes down splendidly with it. I like a wee bit of syrup for the remaining pancakes and dip a hashbrown into it..scrumptuous!*Birthday cake - I like any excuse for attending a birthday party. Today is my fiances birthday and next week is my sons so cakes are planned! A good birthday cake needs a delicious moist sponge, jam and cream and some tasty sweet icing. The best ones are Asda party cakes and they are reasonably price. I can control the urge to buy a random cake at Asda though just for eating..I'm not that obsessed yet!
*French Toast - some may call it eggy bread! I usually mix up 4 eggs and milk for enough mixture for around 6 slices between me and my fiance. Served up with tomato sauce or a wee tin of beans its delicious. Another way to make this different is to put some grate cheese in the bread before dipping and fold over..cheesy dreams!
Thanks for reading, Laura xxx
