Back to counting points today. I confess I rather enjoyed it as it gave me a goal and now, at the end of the day, a sense of satisfaction for having stuck to my daily allowance.
Breakfast = 9
30 g porridge (3)
30 g oat bran (3)
150 ml almond milk (1)
1 tbsp sesame seeds (2)
1 tbsp lucuma powder ?
Mixed together the night before and eaten at work the next day.
Lunch = 8
I didn’t take any pictures! I made this last night and then at lunch time the office was so busy I didn’t want to get my camera out. I feel self conscious in the busy office. I was inspired by a recipe on Gena’s blog which is called ‘Choosing Raw’. This site has many raw and vegan recipes which I enjoy eating. So based on her recipe for Omega Rich Broccoli Hemp Slaw With Tangy Mustard Dressing I made:
Broccoli Slaw with a Sweet and Tangy Dressing
Ingredients (serves 1)
- 1/2 a head of broccoli, finely chopped
- 1/2 a small kohlrabi, grated
- 2 small carrots, grated
- 1 tbsp raisins
- 1 tbsp sunflower seed sprouts
- 1 tbsp Shoyu (Soy Sauce)
- 1 tbsp toasted sesame oil
- 1 tbsp white wine vinegar
- 1 tbsp maple syrup
- 1 tsp Dijon mustard
- 1 tsp curry powder
- Place slaw ingredients in a large bowl
- Mix dressing ingredients together in a small pot with a tight fitting lid.
- Shake to mix well
- Pour dressing over slaw and mix really well so the dressing covers all the vegetables.
Sorry there is no photo to tempt you to make this delicious and healthy lunch. I really enjoyed it and will definitely be making it again. It came in at 8 points (raisins (2), sprouts (1), sesame oil (4) and maple syrup (1)).
Dinner = 13
Lovely fresh lettuce from the garden,
still wet from the rain and including crawly things – proves it’s fresh !
With a large sweet and juicy beefsteak tomato, salt and pepper.
1 can of tuna (6) with 1 tbsp mayonnaise (3) plus 100 g brown rice (4) cooked with Arame seaweed.
So the little notebook is back on the kitchen table.
It’s good to be counting again.
