No booze challenge

31 day challenge … day 22

I woke today with what felt like the worse hangover ever….. obviously it wasn’t a hangover as i’ve now been alcohol free for the last 22 days.  This headache also came with dizziness and sickness,  so i had to return to bed, which is where i stayed and slept till well into the afternoon.  By 3ish the dizziness and sickness had gone and i was just left with a muggy head so i got up and persuaded hubbs to take me food shopping.


Today’s menu

Breakfast :  Porridge

Lunch :  missed

Tea :  Butternut squash and tomato curry and rice   (slimming world recipe)


Booze craving :  0/10  and really looking forward to my chocolate options


Butternut squash and tomato curry with rice

Butternut squash and tomato curry

1  Butternut Squash

1  Onion

2 cloves of garlic

1 tsp turmeric

1 chilli  ( i used 1 tsp chilli powder)

2 tbsp medium curry powder

1 veg stock cube in 3/4 boiling water

1 handful red lentils

Tomato’s  ( i used 1 tin )

also added 1 green pepper just because i had 1 that needed to be used.

Fry chopped onion (in frylight) until soft add spices

then add stock and lentils

Place chopped butternut squash, tomato’s and stock mix into a casserole dish and place in medium oven for 40mins to an hour.

I actually place all my ingredients into the slow cooker and left for a few hours, the smell is gorgeous even hubbs commented and he hates curries.

I’ve had 1 portion and the rest i will split up into 2 or 3 more portions and freeze.

  1. I liked this post yesterday when you posted it, but didnt have the time to comment. So i’m popping over to leave a response. That curry looks yummy! I’m Irish and Guyanese my family eats alot of West Indian food. But, yours looks yummier then some of the traditional dishes my mother makes. Plus, i think your version is a million times healthier! Yesterday I actually had curried cabbage with white rice. Yums.
