So, I live in premier inns during the week around the country. But these hotels push the all you can eat meals at you with very little healthy options. Curry night, pie night, fish & chips night……fine if your there on for a few days out of the year for some sort of holiday or event, but if your there two/three/four times a week, every week…..thats just asking to end up clothes shopping at big & tall.
Some meals are good if you can order off menu. Get rid of the chips and add in some veg. Great, but that will be extra! *sigh*
To be fair a lot of premier inns will give you veg instead of chips at the same price but you get whatever they have left in the freezer. Vegitables are not a part of the menu at all so you have to hope for the best and see what you get. Sometimes I order my meal with no chips or onion rings but ask for veg and a plain side salad, its 50:50 whether I get exactly what iv ask for.
As I dont want any carbs with my evening meal and they only give you a small selection of veg if your lucky iv had to maximise my meat options to fill me up. Otherwise I find myself raiding the vending machine or the 24 hours macy Ds. Mixed grill fills you up but its not much good on the old limited calorie allowance. They did a surf, turf and chicken dish that was awesome! That with veg and salad was perfect and a reasonable price too. It was the only thing there that worked with my calorie allowance but they cancelled it nationwide, sometimes I think just to annoy me for ordering off menu. My regular inn was one of the only ones that had a veg option actually on the menu and they took that off too, they told me they werent even stocking veg anymore! YOU WHAT???!
So with my new gym membership im targeting different premier inns near Pure Gyms. The first one I try also has a toby carvery down the road. Why didnt I try this place before?? It has solved my problems. Not only is it cheap, you get to choose exactly what you want on your plate. A mix of 4 meats, I ignore the carbs amd fill up on a great choice of vegitables. Marvelous!
So thats what im going to be eating most of the week. Luckily I like to eat the same thing every day and I only want a choicen when i can take advantage of it; on holiday. I will target 800 kcal for my evening meal, mostly veg.
