@AwkwardSquad I can’t claim the chicken burger as my own! It’s a Bird’s Eye quarter pounder. The crispy breading is made with popped rice. Really light and crunchy, tastes great! Probably terribly bad for me...


B: 2 scrambled eggs and Eton Mess advent chocolate
L: chicken salad with a bit of blue cheese, popchips and watermelon
S: raisins
D: spaghetti Bolognese homemade with wholewheat pasta. First time having proper wholewheat- it was delicious. A bit firmer, couldn’t taste any difference.

B: fruit and fibre with banana, toast and marmite, black coffee.
Late morning: two mince pies, tea.
L: beans on toast, tea, chocolate biscuit.
Mid-afternoon: tea, mince pie.
Pre-supper: tapenade on mini bruschettine, large glass of rosé.
Supper: liver and bacon, onion gravy, mash, greens. Baked apple with vanilla ice cream.
I only post here to make everyone else feel they eat almost nothing!!
