I decided to not eat breakfast at home today and I caught an earlier train. Which gave me time to look round the market for a healthy breakfast.
I have been past this grocers but never in it before – the trains run just above it.
I chose a smoothie.
I went for the strawberry one which was made with freshly squeezed orange juice, strawberries, banana and natural yogurt. It was good. And I bought 2 clementines to have mid morning as well.
At lunch time I wandered back in to the market and it was buzzing. So many new stalls open up on a Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Such as this lovely fish stall
And an amazing vegetable stall, which not only sells the most amazing produce but it is all arranged so well.
I wanted to buy it all! But for lunch I went to the Raclette stand. The last time I was in the market on a busy day I had already eaten lunch but I have wanted to try a Raclette ever since. The cheese is cut and placed in a special contraption
which heats the cheese under a little grill so it melts
and once melted it is scraped on to potatoes and served with gherkins and small onions.
Nothing more to say. Just WOW! It is not a huge portion so really not a diet disaster, especially since I had such a light breakfast.
I stood and ate it in the sunshine in the gardens of Southwark Cathedral which was packed with people. As was the market. It was buzzing which gave it a great vibe.
I have been buzzing too, busy as a little bee at work, which is going well but is getting busy. Buzzzzz.
