Our last day of the challenge. And surprisingly, Its not been that hard.
Todays breakfast was porridge with a fruit compote consisting of strawberries and raspberries. I was surprised to not have to do breakfast this morning as Liam got up and took Dexter downstairs, looked at the meal planner and made the breakfast that it said. Ok, he looked at Monday and we started a day late so should be on Sunday, but still, it was so nice to have it all done. Breakfast is normally my thing to do as he goes to work before we get up.
With that out of the way, I got started on lunch. Today we had decided to go for a picnic near the lock at Water Newton and watch the boats and ducks. We took 2 different flavour pinwheel sandwiches (ham & cheese spread and salsa & cheese), sausage rolls, garlic bread, strawberries, grapes, raisins, tuna and sweetcorn pasta, and some goodies snacks, of course.
Once we’d eaten we played with Dexter’s ball and we stroked a dog that was on one of the boats that went passed. We watched the ducks and then crossed the other side of the lock to see the boats from that side too.
Dinner for the boys was jacket potatoes to finish off the tuna & sweetcorn and I had mine with a nice plate of salad. Nothing terribly fancy or exciting but it goes to show you don’t need big fancy recipes to cut out the junk – and after all, isn’t that what this week has been about?
I’ve really enjoyed this challenge. Its certainly made me think about what I feed my family and how we shop, store and cook our food. I think I’ve also encouraged a few others to try new things too.
I hope there are a lot more people that have enjoyed it as much as I have. It’s not been all that difficult to keep up with and I think if anything I made it slightly harder than it needed to be by following new recipes and trying new foods I hadn’t worked with before, but even with all that, it’s not been hard at all. So just exactly why do we fill ourselves with processed rubbish and ingredients that we don’t know. Certainly food for thought. (See what I did there?)
