Carb Your Enthusiasm
I’m loving the extra carbs that I’m supposed to take under my new meal protocol. It just makes all that protein a lot easier to take even though it adds to the amount of calories I have to polish off each plate.
The meals require a fair amount of organisation. I’m trying to make my own sauces from scratch, but a lot of times I end up buying sauce from the supermarket. Having said that, I’m only about 10 days into the new meal plan so I should probably cut myself some slack.
Carbs of choice right now are spuds and brown rice. But I think I’m also allowed wholemeal cous cous, wholwheat pasta and quinoa. I plan to mix it up because I made some exceptionally soggy brown rice yesterday that was pretty hard to take. The problem arose when I literally had too much on the boil as I was trying to steam some potatoes at the same time as I cooked the rice.
As you can see, my culinary skills aren’t the best but like they say, you learn to do by doing.
On the flipside, I do tidy up quite well, especially in work. Although I don’t go through quite as many napkins as Larry does…
