Here's my recipes, wife and I have been doing this for the last 6 weeks. Both lost most weight in the first week and now seem to have plateaued, we have been cheating a little (some porridge, and 2 pieces of dark chocolate after dinner) but weight loss had slowed before this. I lost 3kg in the first week and then only 1 more since. Have been active etc so bit confused why not loosing more. I think the main benefit has been not eating bread (gives me indigestion) and have cut down from 2 beers a night to 2 a week\1
onions/spring onions, mushrooms, ham fried up with beans then tin of toms added in and allowed to thicken up. Serve with fried eggs.
Omelet - red onion thinly sliced and fried with mushrooms and chorizo. Add spinach then eggs.
Griddled chicken with a massive salad. Salad can include anything but typically is (well it was tonight) toms, spring onions, red/orange peppers, beetroot, radish, watercress, avocado, grated carrot, beans. Topped off with a dressing of 1/2 olive oil, 1/2 vinegar, and a big spoonful of wholegrain mustard.
Lentils: Chop and fry and onion, add chopped carrots (and swede if you want), and a bit of garlic, fry a bit then add some bacon or gammon. Fry a bit more then add 500 grams of brown or green lentils, 1.5lt of water and 2 bay leaves (you can also put in other things like cumin - that was nice). You then need to cook it for long enough to cook the lentils. We use a pressure cooker (good for cooking beans too) for 15 mins on setting number 1. I like this a lot and is easy to take to work.
Sausage, beans and leek casserole (had this last night and for todays lunch - it's nice! BBC Good FOod
Chicken thighs roasted on a load of veg (raw beetroot is very nice when roasted) chop up some chorizo and scatter in with the veg - makes it nicer.
Fabada - spanish food with chorizo, black pudding, fabada beans: link
Chickpea flour pancakes - nice to dip in eggs, make then mixture the night before and cook them in the morning then use a a wrap for sandwiches (nice if you spear humus inside with the sandwich filling.
Made my own Humus - that was nice with a load of carrot, celery, peppers and cucumber to dip in it.
Cottage pie with parsnips and carrot on top
Chilli with extra beans
Thats it for now.
