Part of my kitchen organising includes improving my eating habits. I am a bit rubbish at eating breakfast, often forget about lunch, and then eat dinner. Working in a cake shop often means I'll be snacking all day sampling different recipes, plus I do find it difficult to turn down a scone... All in all, not the healthiest of diets.
I have also noticed that I am losing weight, which is not something I need to do - I'm not boasting, I'm just small and have been lucky enough to not have to worry about my weight.
My hubby does most of the cooking in our house. He enjoys it and is following the WeightWatchers diet, so it's easier for him to sort out what he wants to eat for evening meals and I'll just go along with it. Evie will try whatever we have, so I don't need to make anything different for her. Thursday is my night for cooking so I can get dinner ready for when hubby gets back from rugby training. I plan to work my way through Jamie's 30 Minute Meals. I know it's had mixed review, but some of the menus look lovely.
I decided I needed a way to plan in my breakfast and lunch and make it or prep it ahead of time, so that I do eat something. I sat down on Sunday with my recipe book, iPad and dug out an old pocket Filofax.
It's a work in progress, but so far is working for me. I do plan to make it a bit prettier at some point, but right now it's function over form!
First here is the inside cover holding 2 mini highlighters, bought from Wilkinson. They are the perfect size for my pocket Filofax and will be used to cross off list items. It's cleaner then drawing lines through everything.
I love it so far, and I am pleased to say that I have eaten pretty well this week. I have also been buying some new lunchbox accessories to make lunch more exciting....but more about that another day.
I plan to add some useful charts - temperature and unit conversion charts, and I need to include some pages to store my not in use sticky notes, plus maybe a favourite page for quick access. So what do you think? Genius or overkill?
