Then: 220 pounds (15 stone 10 pounds)
Now: 206 pounds (14 stone 10 pounds)
Lost: 14 pounds
Well, there it is: a stone lost in 16 days. That's 14 pounds to my American readers. Result!
All helped by this kind of food, tonight cooked by my dear wife:
|Turkey peppers with grilled endive|
Red and green peppers, stuffed with ground turkey, red onion, bits of pepper, a red chilli, some Worcestershire sauce for flavour, and baked with love. Oh, and cheese on the top. She says this recipe was inspired by Kalyn's Kitchen, which has lots of South Beach recipes: www.kalynskitchen.com.
I made some more grilled endive, like the other night. You cut them in half, brush the cut side with olive oil, salt and pepper, put them cut side down into an incredibly hot pan, for about 2 minutes till they're smoking, brush the uncut side with oil, salt and pepper, turn them over and pop them into the oven for 4 or 5 minutes till they're firm, but just starting to wilt at the edges. A great combination with the turkey peppers.
