Easy like a Saturday morning

Today we got up late and popped to the supermarket. Rather impressed with Tesco’s growing selection of eggs. I’ve asked my husband for a box of duck eggs for Valentine’s day. I would prefer this to a bottle of rose or a box of chocolates, though obviously these would be nice. We got some smoked bacon, some berry smoothie, potato waffles and some Chestnut Maran eggs. We brought them home and had a pretty amazing breakfast/brunch as a consequence, accompanied by a freshly brewed tea. (My husband has recently purchased do it yourself tea bags from the internet, which makes using leaf tea a lot easier.)

I’ve just finished planning the healthy (?!) meal plan for the next two-ish weeks. Since getting married (or since knowing me and my family for my husband), we have both put on weight and so February is the time when we attempt to make things right. We are going to attempt something low-carb (by that I mean limited) with limited dairy and sugars. So we shall see how it goes…!

Here’s the plan:
