The mealsI found myself straying from the meals this week. I probably had 5 or 6 meals where I chose not to have Lite'n'Easy. Some of the ones I did have are shown below.
|Cereal, coffee and yakult - I already at the toast!|
|Omelette with ham, tomato and spring onion|
|Cereal and toast with plum jam|
|Meatballs with coleslaw and fruit|
|Chicken pasta and fruit|
My satisfactionThis week I found that I really just wanted to eat other things. Not necessarily unhealthy food, but I just wanted the option of having something other than what was listed on my pre-planned meal menu. I did have a public holiday in the middle of the week where Gareth and I went out for lunch (and generally I treated more like a weekend day), but there were other meals where I choose to eat something else - like left over home made pork spaghetti that Gareth made for dinner, or porridge at Kinfolk for breakfast.
|Homemade pork spaghetti - thanks babe!|
|Quinoa porridge and coffee from Kinfolk|

As you can see, this week I still had some movement in my measurements, but I put on almost half a kilo. I'm not surprised because I think I was eating more food, and so my body was a bit heavier with food weight. The other option is that I've put on a little bit of muscle, which I'm also happy with :P
SummaryThis week, instead of struggling to stick to a meal plan that I wasn't particularly interested in, I chose to eat other foods when I desired. And to be honest, I think I was more satisfied as a result. I still appreciate the convenience of having meals there for you that you can prepare quickly and not have to organise, but maybe not all the time.
I think this is more a reflection on my view of food, rather than Lite'n'Easy as a product. I've decided that this coming week is going to be my last full Lite'n'Easy week - mostly because I had already ordered the food before I 100% made this decision. I'll give you a full run down of why I've decided this later in the week.
What is one of your quick and easy go to meals? Please share - I would love some new ideas!
