Since starting the program I've found that I can enjoy more pumpkin. Previously I only ate pumpkin if it was mashed with potato or I'd have a token piece with my roast. Now I can have chunks of it in a curry and enjoy eating it.
(as a side note how awesome is that pumpkin carving?!!)
I've always been a white bread girl - so I was pretty reluctant to try a grain bread. I usually really hate wholemeal bread let alone grain bread. However I found Helga's Wholemeal Grain bread. Super tasty - so hopefully it's also good for me :) It definately doesn't feel like a chore eating it!
Lindt 70% cocoa chocolate
I've always been a chocolate fan - often having a bar out of the work vending machine! Week 2 of the program saw this chocolate introduced as a night time snack - and I learnt to make the most of 2 blocks of this chocolate. They are bigger blocks than say Cadbury's family block.
Benefits of high cocoa chocolate are here:
I have tried 80% (different brand) which is a bit more bitter but I still enjoyed it.
