Agenda for the day was as follows:
7:00 Shake (psyllium and bentonite clay mixed with 300ml mineral water and 100 ml Organic orange juice).
08:15 ½ a melon.
08:30 meet Lisa in the village for a walk round the snowy apple orchards :-). This snow is making my world look very black and white!
We walked round the orchards
and over to the hop fields. Where the dogs tried to catch snowballs.
10:00 ½ a pineapple.
13:00 Raw Vegetable Salad, made with lettuce, cherry tomatoes, cucumber, avocado, yellow pepper, green pepper, spring onion, buckwheat sprouts and fresh herbs. I added some flax seed oil and lemon juice as a dressing. The colour has come back in to my world.
It was so cold I did not feel like a salad.
But this was tasty.
And it was good to eat something savoury after all of yesterdays sweet fruit.
16:00 Crudités with a guacamole dip. Unfortunately I was hibernating under a warm duvet so I missed this snack. I went to Ramsgate after the walk to prepare the house for visitors and it was so cold in the house that I retreated to bed. I was cold and feeling tired so I had a good sleep.
20:00 Roast Fennel salad. Finally, some cooked food!!!! I was so excited to be turning the oven on 🙂 . This was very tasty and I will make this again. You cut the fennel in to thin strips and put it in a roasting tray. Drizzle it with olive oil and the juice and zest of an orange. Roast at 170 ° C for 15 minutes and serve on top of the salad, which was the same as the one I had at lunch time, except instead of adding a dressing, I used the oil and orange juice from the roasting tray.
It was delicious. And warm.
I am now catching up, thanks to iplayer, on the last 2 episodes of Borgen, a Danish drama about the life and challenges of a female prime minister. Our broadband at home is dreadful but in Ramsgate it is brilliant. I can just press play and it goes from beginning to end without stoping once.
Last thing to take of the day will be some probiotics and then an early night.
