Here’s a tip for anyone following the Ideal Weight plan; read the food packs carefully and follow the instructions, otherwise it might not taste as nice as it should do. I learnt this today when I made my first cottage pie. Not reading the instructions properly, I poured cold water in, stirred it up and popped it in the microwave. When I started eating it I wondered if it was supposed to taste a bit gritty, but when I read the pack properly it says to make up using hot water! What an idiot! But to be honest, I ate it as it was, and it wasn’t unbearable, so imagine how tasty it will be when made properly! I told my Ideal Weight coach about this mishap, and after she had finished laughing she told me that it was advisable to follow the instructions in future!
