I started today with a delicious roll. The bread was so dark and full of seeds and I had it filled with ham. With a skinny latte on the side.
I have had a challenging week at work. It has been the week to deliver what I have been working on for 4 weeks so it has been stressful and busy and demanding. It seemed to go well and today I could begin to relax a little which was much needed. I went out for an early lunch today and it was sunny again. Market Day :-).
The market was buzzing and I really enjoyed it. It was full and noisy and vibrant. Yet again I thought how lucky I am to work next to such a wonderful place. Look where I ended up again!
Well, it has been couple of weeks.
I sat and ate outside next to the Cathedral, breathing slowly and deeply and feeling very happy.
I didn’t NEED 2 of these cookies but I had them anyway – they were great.
I also gave in to temptation and bought 4 of these massive meringues; 2 raspberry and 2 plain. We will enjoy those this weekend.
Back to Turnips. Harvey loves figs with yogurt and a drizzle of runny honey so I bought some figs for him.
And some mango. Aplhonso mangoes are here :-). They are much smaller than others and very intensely flavoured. Hideously expensive too but what a lovely treat.
I left work at 5:30 pm on the dot and tried a different route home. I walked across Southwark Bridge and took in the views and felt the warm sun on my face and felt excited for the weekend. I got on the train at Cannon Street which meant I got a seat – hooray. I too often have to stand until Sevenoaks when I get on at London Bridge so by taking a lovely walk which was 5 minutes longer then the normal route, I got on at the start of the line and had a seat. Result.
I over-ate today so apart from a glass of wine, I had a super healthy supper. This was one of the best smoothies I have ever made. I love looking in the fridge, fruit bowl and garden and choosing what to blitz up. I think about how the produce is bursting with goodness and by having it in a smoothie, my body can so easily absorb and digest it all.
- 2 Swiss Chard leaves
- 1 Bulls Blood beetroot leaf
- 2 Medjool dates
- 1 frozen banana
- 6 large strawberries
- 1 tbsp golden linseed
- 1/2 carton cottage cheese with pineapple
- Almond milk
- 1/2 an avocado
- Ice cubes
It was perfect. Thick and smooth and creamy. It had the consistency, texture and coldness of an almost melted ice cream. Perfect. I know I just said perfect twice, but it really was. Perfect, perfect, perfect :-).
Have a great weekend.
Oooooo your lunch looked delicous!! I will have to go there one day and have a try! And looking at all those wonderful pictures is making my mouth water!! So glad you had such a wonderful time and very much excited for the weekend ahead x.x.x
You should come and meet for lunch one day. The market is open Thursday and Friday on weekdays. Bring Harvey too and then you 2 can go off to do something fun in London until I finish work.
Everything looks so great and that smoothie just pushes me further into wanting to hide money away for the Vitamix! 😀
I would say they are worth saving for. Can you email me your address. I have found something I want to post you 🙂
