Best of 2009: New Food

Struggling with this one. We’ve not got into anything new really this year. We eat all sorts of different stuff anyway and being married to a chef means we eat delicious things at home.

I am trying though to eat more healthily. Being on metformin tablets means that my belly has suffered horrid side effects the last couple of months. I struggle to tolerate anything greasy or fried. This is fantastic news for my waistline! Whereas I used to long for bacon and egg sandwiches for brunch now I just think about the agonising belly ache it will give me so I opt for a bowl of cereal for breakfast and some soup for lunch instead.

I’m 1lb away from losing a stone in 2mths. Healthy food is where it’s at (although I must confess that I am planning to skip my tablets on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day so that I can enjoy some festive food without feeling poorly!!!).
