My dear Mother-in-Law, Wanda, refers to yesterday’s dinner as Spa Cuisine because it is so elegant, thanks to her lovely daughter’s superb cooking but it is just the old 2–5 quasi diet that we have only been on these past two weeks.
Diane counts our calories and we eat lightly during the day and finish with a low-cal evening meal in order to keep our count at the 500/600 daily limit; so far it has worked out well.
For dinner Diane fixed us her fried vegetables: capsicum, onion and mushroom. With these vegetables she sauteed in very light oil a small amount, three I think, of prawns (weighed of course) and about six small scallops, also weighed.
It is a nice way of eating because you never feel hungry; the food intake can be varied according to what is in the pantry regardless, broadly speaking, of what it is as long as you keep to the count.
