Back on the healthy eating bandwagon..

Yesterday, I sat down and looked through my meal planner, and was horrified!! Out of the 11 days of November, we had (and I'm a little ashamed to admit it) eaten 5 takeaway meals out of 11!!! My stomach churned at the thought. And so began much healthy meal planning, and a subsequent grocery shop!

Tonights meal consisted of:

Apple Slaw:

1 quarter of a cabbage, finely shredded
2 carrots, grated with the skin on
1 red apple
1 half a cup of sultanas
1 half a cup of chopped walnuts
Combined with 3 tablespoons of quality mayo.

Tuna Patties:

1 large tin of tuna in springwater
1 small tin of tuna (sundried tomato and basil flavour)
2 carrots grated with skin on
3 courgettes grated with skin on
1 clove of garlic, crushed
1 half teaspoon of garlic and herb seasoning
1 tablespoon of oyster sauce
2 tablespoons of japanese style soy sauce
1 egg
1 teaspoon of baking powder
1 cup of flour

Mix until well combined. Add spoonfuls to a nonstick frypan  and cook for 4 mins on either side. 
We had ours with a side of wedges, baked in the oven. Yummo!

Whew! Actually it was a really quick dinner to make, and my family certainly scoffed it down. Day one of healthy eating accomplished. Now bring on tomorrow! Who wants to join me??
