It is now just a few days before the 2022 Ration Challenge starts.
From first thing this coming Sunday morning until I wake up on the following Sunday I will be eating just the contents of my ration box, the additional things that we had to add to it (flour, more rice and oil) and the rewards that I have left after giving most of them away ... spices, salt and a bunch of spring onions.
I decided the other day to sit down and plan out exactly what I would be eating. Some people just wing it and when in doubt have a bowl of plain rice. But for me it is pretty important to spread the foods and flavours out over the whole week and use up as much as what we have been given as possible. When the average calorie count for the challenge foods is just 1738 per day if you use all of the food, I do think it's important to try to use as much of it as you can.
I did a rough draft first, rubbing out and re-writing where necessary ...
.... and then filled in my Ration Challenge Meal Plan.
Sorry for the shadow on the photo, it's hard to get a clear shot on a sunny day when the only window in your kitchen is a skylight. 😄
I was asked if I would share my Unboxing Video again for those that missed it, so I'm happy to oblige. Here it is just for you.
And my Fundraising Page is here - https://www.rationchallenge.org.uk/sue-hall
I am just a whisker away from my final target.
A huge THANK YOU to those of you who have already been so generous with your donations. I am looking forward to sharing photos of my foods over the course of next week with you all ... and hopefully not too much whinging about things.
