day 2

Woman (UK) - - Real Life -

BREAK­FAST the chil­dren go rogue and eat huge bowls of honey nut clus­ters, which are 402 cals per 100g. with full-fat milk. cripes. i eat my usual por­ridge with soya milk and sul­tanas. un­der 200 cals. am i a health guru now?

LUNCH i ri­fle through an­cient cook­books with hor­rid pho­to­graphs of anaemic food. all the recipes are an­no­tated with a con­ve­nient calo­rie con­tent. i ear­mark a few for later, lunch on home­made leek and potato soup and re­bel­liously refuse to cal­cu­late the calo­ries.

DIN­NER i de­cide to serve ‘one-pot cheesy pork and pota­toes’ from a bbc good­food book for no good rea­son other than it is 580 calo­ries per serv­ing. my fam­ily make me prom­ise never to make it again. my hus­band won­ders aloud if it might qual­ify as a hate crime. pe­tits filous for pud­ding; 48 calo­ries a pop, breach­ing the 600 limit by 28. oops.
