Making our meals look appetising as well as taste good is a wee bit of a challenge since we’re still on Step 1 of the Weigh-Less program, but I think I am getting better at making things up!
Before I get to the “risotto”, let me tell you about our braai. On Sunday we had a braai for lunch with a friend, so I cooked peeled baby potatoes and chopped up a whole lot of raw veggies- green peppers, tomatoes, onions, patty pans and cucumber. We roasted chicken pieces on the coals and added some low oil dressing to our potatoes and veggies and voila- a Weigh-Less friendly braai! And it was yummy. We did cheat some on Sunday with some snacky things whilst we chatted and waited for our lunch, but I think we put a dent in the cheating with a few hours on the Xbox Kinect!
Our Sunday night supper was rice, tuna, tomato, onion, green peppers and low oil dressing all mixed together in one big bowl! My Glugster said it looked a bit like Risotto, so I figured I would blog about it for anyone who is looking for dinner ideas!
Monday night we had burgers again- wholewheat buns with tomato, pickles, low oil dressing, onion and a mince patty. I must be honest and say I wish I could have had cheese on mine like the knucklehead did…
What are you doing to make your diet food look interesting?
