30 a Week Challenge Day 3

 Tuesday meals:

Breakfast: Porridge 


My back was hurting yesterday morning, so G offered to buy me lunch out. A local pub has just begun lunchtime carveries, so we decided to help them out 😊  The choice was turkey or gammon, roast potatoes and 3 kinds of veg for £6.95 per person. I don't usually eat meat, but the turkey looked delicious and I was hungry so that's what I had. It was piping hot and delicious. I could only add green beans to my challenge list though as carrots and peas have already been crossed off 🤔

Evening meal: Cheese bap with baby tomatoes followed by raspberries with a spoonful of yogurt.

Snack: homemade flapjack (containing oats and sultanas)

The total so far....

It's getting harder to add things to the list now.  I'm definitely flagging 👀  

I have a Sainsburys food delivery this afternoon and there are an awful lot of substitutions this week but I do have a free loaf of bread to look forward to 👍  If you click on the 'Discover' link on the website then 'Free samples and competitions' you will find the offer.  There are other things as well like flavoured milk for free.  My usual skimmed milk has been substituted for Organic milk, my bio washing powder for non-bio, and a few other things which will be refused at the door. My back still hurts so I'm grateful for the delivery.

Any idea how many different fruits and veg you consume in a week?

Today I'm thankful for:

A lovely, bright & sunny day

DD called to say she is visiting tomorrow 😍

Thanks so much for popping in. Stay safe everyone x


  1. I eat lots of fruit but an apple a day plus whatever is in season plus grapes. If I had to buy other different sorts something would get left. It's a puzzle why it needs to be different, isn't it. Won't be following that plan!

    Thats a bargain carvery - looks good too

    1. It's quite tricky to get to 30 different things but the thinking is to add more variety to our diets I think. If we are going to be strapped for cash this Winter and beyond, then variety will bite the dust!

    2. Thank you, Diana, that explains the reasoning behind it.

  2. Ooh, thank you for the Sainsbury tip! I'd never been to that part of the site before - but I have now!

    1. Glad to help! Fingers crossed you can get something free too ;)

    2. I've put the free bread on my Saturday order too!

  3. I struggle to get 5 a day, never mind 30 different kinds a week! But, it is supposed to be good to have more variety for the different kinds of nutrients they contain.


Feeling Overwhelmed

 Gosh, it's been more than two weeks since I last posted on here.  During that time, I have been feeling quite overwhelmed by life and f...
