This is a delicious quick lunch which uses up the old mushrooms you may have lying about.
Chop the mushrooms, onions, garlic, bacon (if want to include) and get a litre of chicken/veggie stock ready plus 200g of risotto rice.
Throw the chopped bits into a pan with a splash of oil and cook. After a few minutes throw in the rice and add liquid. You may want to add peas and or spinach or whatever you jolly well like. Leave for a few minutes to simmer. Add Parmesan cheese and enjoy.
Tip: This could be boxed up for tomorrow’s lunch too.
1 litre of Chicken/Veggie stock
200 grams Risotto rice
Peas or spinach, etc.
Seasoning and mixed herbs
After a family wedding and subsequent holiday, everything is now back to the old routine.
This means a serious plan to get back to a healthy diet and exercise plan. The plan is to do a series of healthy months and call the idea Healthy Month (probably one in four months). Therefore, the first one will be Healthy Month – August. Or #HealthyAugust.
The plan is:
Eat healthy meals with a focus on fresh vegetables and fruit.
Low alcohol consumption.
Exercise almost daily.
Blog, Facebook or tweet about progress.
My goal is to lose 2 lb a week which is quite a challenge for me. It seems a good month to do the above, but I am aware there may be the odd outing when I will succumb to some booze or naughty food. However, I plan to be strict. Anybody want to comment on the idea? Feel free to comment below and/or join me!
Don’t forget to follow my blog. Thanks.

Started thinking about food plans and made a delicious mushroom risotto. Super easy to cook. Just chop up a variety of mushrooms with red onions, fresh basil, stock, ground pepper, risotto rice and, of course, a splash of white wine. Yummy, quick to cook and quite filling too.
Also, an effort was made to join the park runners on Saturday and a new pb was secured. The first lap was easier but the second, well, that was tough. It was nice to run with other runners instead of struggling at the back with the walkers.
