Huge bowls of curried vegetable soup with lots of cabbage and a bit of salmon are a standard in my house. I like to keep the soup in the fridge for the week and add the salmon to my portion upon eating. Occasionally
I will add a tablespoon of Greek yogurt to my bowl for cream style
(yogurt must be added 'before' reheating too hot or it will curdle).

vegetable chilli with brown rice. I use alot of quorn chicken. I make vegetable soup every week. vegetable and quorn chicken stirfry. Roasted vegetables are tastier than boiling or steaming them, I use butternut squash, aubergines, sweet potato, whole garlic and onions, I also use alot of tinned tomatoes and spices when I cook.

I oven bake salmon fillets in tinfoil with a splash of soy sauce (very tasty with the roasted vegetables)

ahh i used to eat a lot of the quorn products but now i feel bored of them, i find it all tends to taste very samey if that makes sense. iv never tried the salmon and soy together but that does sound really nice, i usually grill it with a topping of plenty of garlic soit goes crispy, or occasionaly put pesto on it whilst it bakes.

i like greek yoghurt too, but generally dont add it to anything (maybe sometimes put a few slices of banana in there) i find it quite filling, but dont really see the point of puting too much fruit or honey in it because then it feels like its defeating the point of a healthy yoghurt

ill definitely have a goat curried vegetables and roasted ones too, i usually just boil mine haha this is why my diets so boring! thanks guys!

I buy the 'Total 0% Greek Yoghurt', it's fatfree and a miniscule amount of carbs, my favourite treat each day is a couple of tablespoons of this with added berries, banana, apple etc and it helps to keep the sweet cravings away

You fell off the wagon, don't beat yourself up. Just get back on track, go for a walk. Plan your meals, maybe work on a backup plan for your next social event so you'll do better. Soldier on!

advice needed
Make your way of eating and your exercise part of your life, not a diet that will run it's course. Sounds easy but it does take commitment and effort.
