I dedicate today’s blog to the wonderful muesli I had for breakfast.
This is the muesli I bought from the Town Mill in Lyme Regis on Saturday. It is full of fruit,
seeds and a good variety of nuts.
I had 50 g with soya milk and a pear.
It was delicious and I estimate 6 points (muesli = 5 and milk = 1).
I also dedicate it to the muesli as it was the best thing I ate all day. Lara has gone skiing tonight and then she is back to University. As I am quiet at work at the moment, I was confident enough of making time for a lunch break that I suggested a cheeky pub lunch. Unfortunately, literally as we were about to leave, I had to get involved with something at work. We did pop out but not until 2 pm and then I made a bad choice. I chose Welsh Rarebit with bacon.
I am not saying where I went because normally this place is fantastic and is one of our favourites locally. I do not want to say a bad word about somewhere usually so good. Lara and Harvey enjoyed their meals, I think I was just unlucky. I like Welsh Rarebit to be cheesy but this was more ale and mustard. It was OK but disappointing and I estimate 11 points.
We were out for less than an hour as we did not have starters or desserts and as we had gone late we didn’t linger.
In the afternoon I had an opportunity to use a gadget I had forgotten I had. I found this packet of coconut Adagio tea which I really like. I put a teaspoonful in the little strainer
and popped it in my mug until it was the strength I like. In an attempt to consume less dairy I am having most of my drinks without milk. This was lovely black and the little pieces of dried coconut provided a lovely flavour and mild sweetness.
I didn’t manage my walk today either. I should have gone first thing but I planned to go this afternoon but was then too busy at work. I did contemplate going out in the dark but James wont be home until 9pm and I am not that dedicated. Harvey will not want to come out now so I will have to do extra tomorrow.
For dinner I made a red lentil dahl which was cooked with shallots, butter and cumin seeds.
I have run out of brown rice so I had to use white Basmati which I cooked with coriander seeds and cardamon pods for a bit of flavour. They rise to the top during cooking so are easy to pick off before serving.
Served with some lightly steamed kale. This mediocre meal was 14 points (dahl = 5, 1 tbsp butter = 3 and 60g rice = 6).It would have been better if I had not been distracted by something on Facebook so the dahl and rice overcooked and it was all a bit dry. Harvey managed to eat his with the aid of mango chutney but I did not have enough points left. It was OK but not great. I hope I manage to prepare better food tomorrow. Or maybe I will just eat Muesli all day!
I’ve had those days where museli would have been great to eat all day long! You probably walked a mile anyways but cheers to double duty tomorrow. 😀
Thank you Laura. It is disappointing when your meals don’t turn out as you expect them to. Still, at least I didn’t eat something else as an alternative and I have cheered myself up by realising I have eaten really well all week 🙂
I’m glad you stopped to pat yourself on the back for such a great job getting back onto the eating healthy again wagon. The exercise you have always been good at because it comes so natural to you. Not to mention the dogs love that you and Harvey take them for such a great walk all the time.
