I have fallen off the wagon big time with meal planning recently and have sorely missed the grip on food organisation it gives me. To complicate matters, last week we spent most of our time with friends holidaying nearby which was lovely, but as one of them has a severe nut, soya, bean and lentil allergy our plant based diet was necessarily altered. It was lovely seeing them but I did miss my regular food and am happy to be once again embracing my lentils, as it were.
My current challenge is to eat more, particularly protein and grains so it's extra portions for me and when the baby has a high calorie snack, so do I. I am happy with the weight I have lost since we turned to the plant side, but I don't want to lose any more. I think clever baking is a good way forward, if I can just find the time!
Anyway, enjoy the menu (I certainly will!).
