Thanks to a bout of insomnia last night I was up in the very early hours so I made breakfast and lunch.
In the breakfast pot went 1/4 cup oats, 1/4 cup oat bran, 1 tbsp chia seeds, hazlenut milk and frozen raspberries (which were not frozen by the time I ate them). It looks unappetising but it tasted OK.
In the lunch box went tomatoes, celery, red pepper, goats cheese and 2 dates. All chopped and mixed together with some herby oil my sister gave me for my birthday. There were a lot of vegetables in my lunch box, despite the photo making it look like a tub full of cheese.
I returned from the office at lunch time today to work from home. I was hungry mid-afternoon so I had a smoothie. I found a frozen apricot in the freezer and blended that with an apple, blue poppy seeds, 1 tbsp Udo’s oil and Almond milk.
It was not amazing but it filled a hole and gave me some decent nutrients. I was feeling tired and stressed so I was pleased I went for a smoothie rather than being tempted by stodgy carbs.
I took the dogs for a walk in the woods in an attempt to keep the weight down and relax. It did help me relax a bit. Supper was another pot full of food – vegetables left over from last Sunday’s dinner i.e. about 9 days ago. I hate throwing food away!
I cooked some brown Basmati rice and stir fried it with the previously cooked veg, 2 eggs and soy sauce. Unremarkable and unimaginative but comforting and nourishing.
I am settling back to watch the Great British Bake off final. Recorded because I only stopped working at 10:15 pm! Can’t wait to go away 🙂
