Teaching my other half....
Wednesday, September 28, 2011
My husband and I share kitchen duty. As we both work, this really helps keep a balance in our home life, and I always appreciate a meal cooked by him. He knows I'm counting calories, so he worked hard tonight to make a healthy meal - his idea of a healthy meal, at least.
He arrived at the table with mincemeat sauce on a bed of wholewheat pasta, thinking, he said later that the wholewheat pasta would be lower in calories.
At the end of the evening when I was counting calories up, he sat with me as I added in my pasta count - 500calories!! He was shocked!!
Now, I knew it was going to be high in calories, but as I also never say no to someone else cooking in the house, I ate with full awareness that I would go over my daily calorie intake at the end of the day. But, I think my husband learned something tonight about pasta - and that it might not be as low in calories as he thought - now we're both learning.
Tomorrow I jump on the scale again - all in all a better week, here's hoping the pasta doesn't add on too much!!
