The end of the summer seems to have whizzed by – apologies for the lack of recipe posts! We’re still fasting and the recipes had been jotted down and photos taken, but they didn’t quite reach the laptop. If you fancy a few new recipes to try out before autumn descends, read on!

Breakfast: Gooseberry breakfast pots (196 calories)

Lunch: Asian omelette rolls (193 calories)

Dinner: Konnyaku ‘spaghetti’ with chorizo sauce (151 calories)

= 540 calories

Due to some bad diary scheduling, this is our third fast day in a row, but it’s not quite as bad as expected (I think yesterday’s fake pho made it feel like we were taking a break!). On the plus side, we have at least 5 feast days to look forward to now…

Breakfast: Gooseberry breakfast pots (196 calories)

Lunch: Butterbean tomato and caper salad (133 calories)

Dinner: Szechuan pork in lettuce wraps (182 calories)

= 511 calories

Since returning from France our eating-out diary has gone a bit crazy. More often than not we’re having to do 2 fast days in a row and looking at the diary for the week ahead, I can see we’re going to have to attempt a 3 consecutive fast day marathon on Sunday, Monday & Tuesday. That really will test the sustaining power of these recipes to the limit!

Breakfast: Poached eggs with chilli and soy (175 calories)

Add 150 g fresh strawberries (50 cal) to make it up to a 600 man calorie day.

Due to various foodie engagements, we had to do 2 fast days back-to-back this week which also coincided with our swimming days. I tried to pick the most filling and sustaining recipes for fast day 10 to keep us going and I’m relieved to say, they did the trick.

Breakfast: Apricot and ginger porridge (201 calories)

Lunch: Asian omelette rolls (193 calories)

Dinner: Vegetable stir fry (160 calories)

Today was the last fast day before a much-anticipated trip to France to see my folks. This is where those feast days really come into their own! Whether my resolve to continue the fast days remains after a couple of days of beautiful bread, rillettes and wine, we’ll just have to wait and see…

Breakfast: Poached eggs with chilli and soy (175 calories)

Lunch: Smoked salmon and dill cream cheese crispbreads (199 calories)

Dinner: Lamb and lentil koftas with tzatziki (196 calories)

= 570 calories

Although this wasn’t the most nutritionally balanced day, being rather higher in protein and with fewer vegetables than previous days, it was definitely the menu that kept away hunger the most impressively. It also incorporated enough treats that it didn’t actually feel like a fast day!
