    Default Do you have a cooked meal every day?

    Just wondering if you have a hot meal every day? We've had sandwiches and a salad today and as we've got a bit older with no children to feed, I find that a cooked meal is becoming an every other day thing.

    Oh yes twice a day usually! Usually have cereal, beans on toast or soup for brekkie, then soup or sandwiches, salad for lunch and always a cooked meal for dinner. 3 cooked meals a day in winter especially

    More or less every day depending on what shift I'm working and whether it's summer, and I have salad stuff at hand, but there's something cooked to go with it, either fritada or something similar
    in the winter, usually.

    I feel a bit odd without some hot food every day. Like when I am away for the evening, I feel that if I don't get hot food that it's not right!

    Bonkers I know.

    Yes, light breakfast for me, sandwich or toastie at lunchtime, healthy snacks and fruit throughout the day and hot meal and pudding every night.

    I can't remember not having a hot meal every day even when we're camping, if we have salad we have either pasta, jacket potato, couscous with it.
    Some days if I'm not that hunger then I'll have soup and a pudding and no main course.

    We usually have a hot meal every day but now we're not working, we follow the more French style os small breakfast, cooked lunch and then a small tea/supper, unless we're socialising then we may eat in the evening.

    Main change is that now I have time to think about the cooking, we eat much better than when we were living in the UK, much more fresh fruit and veg (and there we ate really healthily anyway) and I've cut out lots of things which means I've lost 7 kilos since the 4 January with no ill effects at all.

    Many more bio/eco stuff too, brown rice and pasta for me instead of white, small changes making a big difference.

    Cereal for breakfast, sandwich or boiled egg for lunch then a cooked meal in the evening, with 1 roast dinner each week, not usually on a sunday either.
