Last night I made my breakfast and lunch. This was so I knew how many calories I was taking with me and to save a few pennies.
Breakfast was so delicious. I mixed 125 g Pineapple Co Yo (yogurt made with coconut milk) with a mashed banana, 1 tbsp chia seeds and 75 g blueberries. I stirred it all together and left it in the fridge. When I sat at my desk in London and ate it I had a few moments of sheer delight. It was a tropical treat and one I shall be having again. 412 calories.
This was only intended to be a snack but it ended up being my entire lunch: 120 g brown basmati rice, 3 raw button mushrooms, cucumber sticks, a celery stalk and some raw broccoli florets. I can not pretend it was particularly enjoyable but I did not dislike it and I just slowly munched it while I worked. 165 calories. Yes, just 165 calories and it kept me full until supper time.
I did pop down to the market at about 2pm, to stretch my legs and think about getting something else to eat. No idea what they were filming this time – quite a lot of filming goes on around Borough Market.
I have often wandered past Neal’s Yard Remedies but never been in. Today I went in though and it was lovely. A sweet scented oasis of calm, with lovely ladies in there to help you find what you need to soothe away your worries and in my case, intensively moisturise my dry hands.
So here we are , at the end of the day, and I have 307 calories left over. I am leaving them well alone as I am not hungry so today is a below the line day.
