We did a big food shop yesterday too, as the hospital said OH isn't allowed to drive for a week following his angio/stents tomorrow. That's assuming it's still going ahead....he has to phone early tomorrow to make sure they've got a bed for him. I do hope they have, we both want this sorted, we feel a bit in limbo at the mo.
Still following our healthy eating and enjoying it. We did relax it a bit yesterday - OH saw a hot cross bun loaf in the shop and said he fancied it, so we got it - who am I to deny a man a treat on the eve of his op?! So we had a couple of slices each toasted and buttered. Well, Bertollied actually lol. We'd changed to Bertolli from our previous real butter about a month ago, because it's a lot less saturated fat than butter. Also, whilst it's ok, it doesn't taste nearly as nice as butter, so we're not tempted to slather it on! Win win.
We've changed to low fat everything - Greek yogurt, milk (well, semi-skimmed as opposed to full fat), cheese (not as nice as full fat mature Cheddar, and melts a bit oddly when cooked), cottage cheese, mayo, Elmlea single instead of full fat double cream. Some things are ok, others not so, but we're more or less used to it all now.
The other big change we've made is simply not to buy things like crisps or salted peanuts, which we both love - if they're not in the house then we can't be tempted to eat them. I expect we'll have them as a very occasional treat in future.
Thank you for the comments yesterday, as always. I'm sorry I don't reply to each one individually - sheer laziness!
Oh, I'm very pleased to say that my final dental treatment on Friday went very well, no problems at all, and I now don't have to go again for another 3 months, just for a check up. I even gave my dentist Emma and nurse Emily a hug, as their kindness and care has cured my dental phobia. Husband has even said he wants to swap over to my dentist - he doesn't have any problem with dental treatment, but doesn't really like the quick, impersonal, conveyor-belt approach of his current large practice.
