1 Chicken, 1 Week Challenge!

Chicken  is by far my favourite meat in the entire world - it's super versatile as it can be used in a wide variety of dishes and goes with so many different flavours! It's also jam-packed full of protein which any health and fitness fanatic such as myself is a vital factor to consider when creating any nutritionally awesome meal.
I'd read in a few places about cooking a whole chicken at the beginning of the week, and then using bits of it throughout the week to create meals with and it sounded like a great challenge for me to test my skills in the kitchen! From what I've seen it's also a super cheap alternative so I'm really eager to give it a go. I'll report back this time next week to see what culinary delights I have managed to concoct as the week progresses.

In other news, I've finally broken my weight-loss plateau! Since January I have been stuck at 130lbs (~59kg), and when I weighed myself last Friday, I was absolutely ecstatic to discover that I have lost 2lbs, getting me to a nice 128! My goal weight is currently 125lbs meaning that I'm now only 3lbs away which I am over the moon about.
I've been trying to deduce what has changed in my diet lately to result in this sudden drop in weight, and the only thing I can put it down to is giving up bread products for lent (post here)!

Has anyone else given this a go? I'd love to hear of the sorts of meals you've created! If anyone else fancies giving it a go as well then let me know! :)

Don't forget that my Zaggora giveaway is still open - so get entering if you haven't already! :)

  1. I always think cooking a whole chicken would be a great idea, but I never get round to it! I did cook on once a few months ago, but after making myself, my sister and my boyfriend dinner, there wasn't much left for leftovers. It's great for making stock for soup too!
