So, How Can We Ruin Our Food This Week?

Mustard greens: I don't like them.

This week's diet is inspired by Captain Janeway from Star Trek: Voyager drinking coffee and being a terrible cook 🙂

So, how can we ruin our food this week? (Tweet this!)

Here are some tips to get started - post yours in the comments!

Food-Ruining Ideas I've Tried:

  • Cover it in hot sauce - tried this, the kids thought it was hilarious
     
  • Drop it on the floor - toddler did this, what a helper!
     
  • Burn it - yep, thanks toaster
     
  • By the way, if you drop a teabag in your toaster you'll soon be wondering which of your neighbours hosts dope-smoking parties (and, perhaps, so will they...)
     
  • Make something you don't like anyway - mustard greens, anyone?
     
  • Leave it to go soggy (cereal etc) or cold - well that tends to happen around here anyway
     
  • Add spices you don't like - ugh, cinnamon (I know I'm swimming against the tide here but I really don't like it!)

 
(Ruining my food actually worked out very well for me - I wouldn't do this for a potluck, but see my Captain Janeway diet review here)

How was Captain Janeway week for me?

So how did the Captain Janeway themed diet go for me? It was great! I was hungry, but it was fun too. I lost a lot of weight, some of it briefly, got a haircut, and got some of my clothes ironed too. Fantastic!

  • Beginning weight: 222.8 lbs.
  • Day 4: 215.2 lbs. This makes me either doubt my scales or wonder if I was wearing something especially heavy the first time - but still, great! We'll see how it is at the end of the week, perhaps somewhere in between, which would be fine.
  • Ending weight: 213.2 lbs

Day 1:

I make porridge (oatmeal) for breakfast. I have 3 boys to feed, so I can't make it all horrible, but I tell them what I'm doing, and they think it is hilarious, watching with great enthusiasm as I add cinnamon (which I hate) to mine, along with raisins (not keen either). I manage about 6 spoonfuls out of hunger before finding it too disgusting to go on. I make myself a litre of organic cafetiere (French press) coffee, put on some square heeled shoes, and stride around like a captain. The kids love it!

I make us all toast with a tin of mackerel for lunch. I wonder if it's possible to add too much Sriracha sauce to that? Turns out it is! About half a centimetre all over the toast, and my face is sweating. The kids think this is the best diet ever. 'Do we have to do it too? Can I try some? Is it as hot as that ghost chili sauce?'
