Super-Charged September – Day 4


Super-charged September is designed as a boost to get you back on track with 5:2.  Every day for a whole month, there’s a challenge or a question or an inspiration to help you: the idea is you do it alone or share your thoughts to help others in the group.  Are you on board?

Here’s my answer:

My Fast Day standbys are soups, and salads. I make batches of my own soup (see my recipe books or the food page for ideas) and freeze it in individual portions, or I do like some of the fresh-made soups you find in the fridges of big supermarkets. Glorious Soups are a favourite when I have no time to make my own. For a quick salad, I marinate half a buffalo mozzarella in balsamic vinegar, herbs and chilli flakes at room temperatures for 30 minutes (or longer in the fridge). I tear into pieces and serve with rocket, more fresh herbs, cherry tomatoes, a few pine nuts (not too many as they’re high in cals) and lots of fresh ground pepper. I am also a huge fan of courgetti, and mushroom stroganoff!

Why not join in the discussion over on the Facebook group (it’s free and your posts won’t appear on your timeline)? Or invest in yourself and your journey by buying one of the 5:2 books, which have helped many thousand worldwide to get going?
