It was cold outside today and so beautiful.
Everywhere you looked was covered in a thick frost.
The sun eventually broke through
but it stayed cold and frosty all day.
I was full of cold today. First one all year so I shouldn’t complain but it is a head cold so I feel very bleurgh!
Why is it that when you feel ill and most need nutritious food you just don’t feel like it? Well I don’t anyway. Brace yourselves for a shocking display of comfort eating. I began with scrambled eggs on toast.
Followed by marmalade on toast. My family all love Elsie Peter’s marmalade which is sold in WI and local markets in Devon. I wonder who she is as I have been eating her marmalade for years. For some reason when I feel ill, I want toast and tea. This was lovely.
A bit later I decided to make an effort and have something more nutritious.
I made a smoothie with natural yogurt for protein, blueberries and 2 clementines for vitamin C to fight the cold, dates for sweetness, Goji berries and acai powder for antioxidants.
I added Hemp Seed milk to make it a little runnier. It was sweet and easy to drink.
I couldn’t be bothered with lunch so I picked at some Doritos with some red pepper hummus.
Followed a bit later by one of the best cakes I have had for a long time – chocolate and sultana sponge cake. It was fabulous. This is half a slice but obviously I had the other half later 🙂 I bought it in Hartley Dyke and suggest you pop in and get yourself a slice if you are local. They sell it in the counter near the bread. Moist sponge, chunks of plain chocolate and sweet juicy sultanas. Oooh yummy!
I don’t feel hungry for supper at all so may just have a hot toddy and a very early night.
