Made this dinner last night, and ok, it seems like a lot of ingredients, but there wasn’t much veg in the house (fridge disaster, had to buy a new one, so in the meantime we’ve had dwindling fresh supplies) so a lot of it is bulk- the lentils, beans, barley and quinoa.  It was a bit of a hodge podge really, and I didn’t know how it was going to taste or turn out- was literally “bung it all in a pot and keep your fingers crossed!” type dinners, which luckily turned out really tasty! 🙂  The peanuts and cashews I ground in a blender with some stock, and then stirred it in to get a nice nutty flavour.

I just realised that I forgot to add the curry paste to the list (now added), so unfortunately I had to cull the 50g Greek yogurt I’d planned to have with my lunch as I’d be over cals.  Lunch will be quite small, although the soup is tasty, and the dumplings make it seem naughty, so am sure I will survive.  Maybe when I get in from work if I’m feeling desperate I can have 30c of yogurt…. Might be about 40g….. I will eat it with a baby spoon. 😛


The day was alright considering I had a super tiny lunch.  I lasted until just before 7pm to have my dinner and didn’t even have to have a baby portion of yogurt!  Before dinner I even did the following: rearranged the new refrigerator, blended some sweet potato soup I made last night (and forgot to actually blend….), prepared the rest of my lunch for tomorrow (Greek yog with maple syrup, an orange, some nuts and a few seaweed rice crackers that need eating), AND made some healthy chocolate fudge!  Well, it’s still in the freezer chilling and solidifying so the ‘making’ isn’t finished yet, but it will be done this evening.  Obviously I can’t try any today, but I will get the boyfriend to try some and give me the verdict!
