Following on with our low carbs, high protein eating and realising some of the foods we thought were good for us could be made better I am now adding sunflower and pumpkin seeds as well as a spoonful of crushed almonds on to my shreddies and soya yoghurt.

Went for a walk while I was in the town. A walk along the sea front, just for a change. It was lovely when I got out of the car, but as I walked along you could see the rain clouds closing in. Sadly they brought hail stones and they stung my face so I headed back to the car. Only managed two miles but better than nothing.

I took one of the portions of chilli con carne out of the freezer that I had cooked last week, Topped it with a lentil mash and browned it under the grill. A thoroughly enjoyable meal.

I went for a walk along the back road today. Have been up their with the twins a few times but have never gone all the way round. Was led to believe it was approx a four mile walk. So I just kept walking, four miles was actually six, thank goodness I had taken a bottle of juice with me.
Well I did warn you that this week was filled with food, not quite sure why but I don't seem to have taken much else this week. Tonight's tea was a fish and cauliflower mash.I cooked some potatoes and cauliflower and mashed them together. I fried off some white fish with peppers and onions with some spices then mixed the mash and fish together and browned it under the grill. It was served with green beans, and very yummy it was as well. I appreciate it does not look too pretty.
Daughter No2 had taken a weeks holiday. She had wedding stuff to sort out and spent a few days in Glasgow with her chief bridesmaid and her daughter. She was trying on her dress and the bridesmaids all had a fitting as well.
She headed down to spend a few days here and so we made the most of a break in the weather and took Bob to do a bit of geocaching and played in two parks. We did offer to take the babies but Bob wanted to go without them.
Had the grandchildren to stay and spent a pleasant evening the four of us playing board games and the wii.

Was nice to get to spend some time with Daughter No2. Don't get to see a lot of her as more often than not she comes down at the weekends as she works during the week, but I work weekends so it is difficult to get quality time together, so today we went for a meal before she went back home.

Carrying on with the food theme (sorry) I made some almond meringues just the two ingredients. Totally GI free with good nutrition from the egg whites and the almonds and handy for the odd snack.
