We had a day off today. Not due to sickness but a day’s holiday. I do still feel below par but so much better than I did yesterday.
I had a real fancy for rice for breakfast. Brown Basmati rice.
I cooked it with eggs and broccoli. The frankfurters are Harvey’s – not my thing.
Stir fried egg with broccoli and cholula hot sauce. Brown rice and vegetables are so healthy and now I am getting a better appreciation of calories, they are a great way to start the day, if you can stomach it. I don’t always feel like vegetables for breakfast but I did today.
We were going to be out during lunch time so I popped 100g brown basmati rice in to a tupperware pot with some red pepper, cherry tomatoes and lettuce. A very simple, low calorie and low fat lunch.
We visited 2 pretty towns/villages today. This is Sutton Valence which is about 15 minutes from us yet we had never been to the village before!
This is a pretty village with a wobbly cobbled pavement and just a small shop and a pub.
Our next stop was Battle, named after the famous battle which took place in 1066.
There is so much historical significance to this place and it is beautiful.
This cup of tea and slice of chocolate cake and cherries was too tempting to resist.
Unfortunately for my purse but fortunately for my shopping pleasure, Battle had a fab kitchen shop and I bought myself a few new goodies.
A quick supper was in order. A stack of veggies, all chopped and ready for stir frying: spinach, carrots, yellow pepper, leek, courgette, mange tout and mushrooms.
For protein we had Tofu Wieners and half a chicken breast each.
Stir fried with a black bean sauce. I had a very modest portion to compensate for the cake!Having had a lovely day out with my son, I am spending the evening with my daughter. We are going to the local cinema to see Arbitrage. Have a good evening 🙂
