I haven’t done one of these posts in ages but the godchildren are re-visiting their food project this summer and we were talking about it this week.
So this is what I cooked, ate and did yesterday.
I woke up ridiculously early at 4am, I know that I whine about my sleeping (and the lack of it) a lot but this week I’ve been wheezing a lot and I woke with a sore throat and a fit of coughing, which is completely unfair. I got up about 10 minutes later and made a honey and lemon and drank that and a pint of water. At about 5.30-ish, I accepted that I wasn’t going to go back to sleep and decided to make the Duke of Wellington my guide (When it is time to turn over, it is time to turn out) and made my coffee and jumped into the shower.
That done, I was ready for work lots of time to spare so I had breakfast at home and had scrambled eggs with a flatbread and the carrot that didn’t make it into my lunch box. Another pint of water and the rest of the coffee.Because of my early start I was in the office at 8.15am. As the computer fired up, I made a cup of peppermint tea and filled up my water bottle. I also ate the last chocolate biscuit from the packet on the treat table. In fairness, they were mine! They were a thank you for some work that I’d done and I put them straight on the table, this I only the third one I’d eaten and I needed the
energy boost sugar rush..Mid-morning, I re-upped my tea and water and ate some grapes.There were also some american Opal Fruits (I refuse to call them Starbursts – they’re bloody Opal Fruits!) before I headed off to the gym for my Body Balance class.Lunch was caramelised onion dip based on this recipe from Cassie at Back to Her Roots (mine has more onions, less mayo) with flatbreads and carrots and a yellow pepper.Mid afternoon, I ate some cherries.And dinner was all the leftovers with some extra veg sauteed in a pan.And that was my day!
