Morning. I’ve gained two pounds dammit! Annoying but I did drink 5 people’s worth of alcohol, probably! 😦

Disappointing, hopefully it will come off soon. Think I need to be stricter and cut out the low-fat cheese and get back on the eggs. I also am addicted to some ‘crispy chicken’ they sell in tesco. Damn that msg. Will stop buying that too.

I had quite a few PV days last week as had bought a lot of salad and veg etc. Am having a PV day today but then am gonna do maybe 3-4 days PP.

Here’s what I’ve got today: 1 tablespoon of oat bran mixed with semi skimmed milk (eaten) leafy salad, cucumber and real chicken for lunch and a vanilla oat bran muffin for later.

Dinner will probably be fish or err chicken.  I really love chicken at the moment!! Poor chickens.

Did I mention I did an hour on the treadmill Saturday?  I was going to do another work out yesterday but didn’t want to hurt my neck, so did some baking instead. Made 6 vanilla and 6 lemon muffins and a loaf of oat bran bread.

The recipe is:

8-10 Tablespoons of oat bran (depending on how long you want it to last, day/allowance wise)

8 Tablespoons of skimmed milk powder

4 Tablespoons of fat-free fromage frais or light cream cheese

16 grams of dry yeast (mixed with water as per instructions)

1 teaspoon baking powder, 1 teaspoon of salt, 1 Tablespoon of fat-free natural yoghurt

2 Tablespoons of ground almonds (you can always put more in if you wanted)

4 tablespoons of warm water

3 eggs

1 Tablespoons of corn flour (again, you could probably put another one in)

Mix everything expect the yeast and fromage frais/cream cheese, then mix those in once the yeast is ready. Give a good whisk then put into a loaf tin and pop in oven. I cover mine with foil for the first 10-15 minutes then take it off for the next 20-25 mins. I normally turn it upside down in the tin once it’s cooked, as the bottom is usually a bit wetter and needs to be dried out. Then leave it in the oven for another few minutes.

Voila, oat bran almond bread! No wheat yay!!

Since I gave up aspartame, my face actually hasn’t twitched. Weird eh.

Will do some exercise tonight, or maybe strip some wallpaper.  Or something!

Right I need to do some work. Will get round to your blogs soon I hope!!

    Ack!!! Dumb seductive alcohol. Cocktails are so evil, yet so good. The loaf bread you baked looked delicious. I have not been so lucky in the baking dept. Can you put your recipe up for that?

    Shannon I’m also in an up scale place (and not some posh hotel or anything either)…being sick was an expense on my scale. Let’s both do a few days of attack what say?

      good idea, I could do with reducing the oat bran for a few days. Im gonna do attack from tomorrow until Saturday, so four days and then see what happens! how about you?

    I love this post… Yo are all over the place… My mind works the same way!

    Thanks for posting the recipe! I have a stupid question (I don’t bake so don’t laugh!) how do you measure 16 grams of yeast? I envision a scale from the 80’s… Err never mind, anyway, how do you measure that?? Thanks… Curious George 🙂

      I know my yeast comes in packgs of 8gms each….with like 6 packets 🙂

      I am so over trying to find a recipe for Dukan bread…I can’t get anything to work!!!

      Not a stupid question! i buy a small tub of dry active yeast that are like tiny yeast balls, so I do weigh out 16 grams, but the original recipe I found was 2 packs of 8 grams of yeast. mine has to be added to water and left for 15 minutes. A tip though – i dont put all of the mixture in, I pour a little bit away or its too yeasty.
