The butcher had some rare cooked roast beef so we ended up with this lunch today.
In the UK it's very popular to have crisps with sandwiches. Is this just habit, or a texture thing? Let's be honest, most 'meal deals' offer crisps as part of the package, encouraging you to have crisps, so it only helps reinforce the habit if you are a bit of a crisp fanatic.
Quite often our rolls/sandwiches are soft and fluffy too, rather than crispy like a French stick. My roll today was quite crispy, and together with the crunchy salad, I didn't miss the crisps.
Although we eat whatever we like, I have been trying not to buy crisps (which I actually prefer to chocolate). The trouble with crisps is they generally come in multi-packs which just sit around waiting to be opened. Or perhaps I buy them knowing they will sit around and be opened... by me?
Anyway, with a crunchy dilemma at hand, we ended up with the beef roll and these crunchy vegetables/salad on the side. The salad was grated carrot, red onion and iceberg lettuce. There was a little grated cheese providing a salty element and a spoonful of coleslaw. The whole meal was around 425 calories too.

We began our weight loss journey in January 2011 - and began our blog in June 2011. Here's a link to the first post. (here's the link).
We like to post our main meals to show you what CAN be eaten. You won’t find us posting every last morsel though – but we hope this gives you an idea of how far calories can go! I'm currently going through the photographs and replacing them with more website friendly versions which will allow the blog to load quickly.
