Jamie’s Super Food book is a bit of an odd one for me, it offers some good recipies but few actually appeal. I mean, I will make them, you know I have this obsession with new recipies, and I’m sure I’ll enjoy them, but I lack lust for them. They are also more on the complex side and so not a “quick prep job” for when I get home.
Tonight I whipped up the Mexican soup. It was OK. It had a very fresh taste and would make a nice summer soup but to be honest, I’d skip the chickpeas next time!
As per usual I try and make a batch of healthy lunches to carry me through my working week. I find this prevents me from:
A. Going out and making bad, hungry choices and,
B. Going out and SHOPPING!!! 👛
This week I used the “YUMMLY” food app that I’ve previously mentioned (it’s great) and made a chicken, sweetcorn and noodle soup.
As with most soups it was pretty much a one pot job. Chuck everything in a pot and leave it to work its magic.
A very simple recipe with a good outcome. The soup is tasty, perhaps a little salty, but offers me a good dose of protein and carbs to see me through my gym session.
Despite my best intentions, I ate the soup today but still went out shopping!!!!! 😯
