Diet Day 45 & Griddled Mint and Garlic Lamb Neck Fillet

Still not feeling brilliant today, so I’ve not been really strict with the diet.

Breakfast: A glass of orange juice, and 2 slices of Burgen Sunflower & Chia Seed bread. This bread was delicious, really high in fibre and full of healthy seeds. Calories – 341

Lunch: There was a crusty white bread bun left so I had that with some pastrami and blue cheese. Calories – 436

Dinner: I found some lamb neck fillets in the freezer this morning, so defrosted that and marinated it in some mint jelly (loosened up with a bit of water) and minced garlic. I griddled it for about 5 minutes each side. I also sauteed some sliced mushrooms with garlic in a little olive oil, and stirred them into some warmed tinned letnils. My mam had bought green lentils. I’m not sure if it was because they were green (I usually use red) or because it was a different brand, but they weren’t nice! The skins on the lentils were really tough. I’ll be going back to red ones from now on! Calories – 428

Snacks: 2 Bendick’s chocolate gingers – Calories – 78
