2 posts today. Double dose.
Tuesday was spent in Birmingham which involves an early start with the alarm set for 4:30am. On the train from Euston to Birmingham I had a green tea and a Camden Food Co Superfood smoothie which had lots of berries in it and nothing too sweet.
During the morning I ate the smoothie I had brought from home which I prepared the night before. I had lunch with my colleague Mitchell. We ate in EAT and I chose 2 small salads, both of which were delicious. We then decided to have a half hour walk round Birmingham City centre which is gorgeous, particularly in the sunshine with all the flowers out. The New Library in the background opens in September. I am quite intrigued by it and intend to visit. Flowers galore.
I had a productive trip to Birmingham but a very frustrating trip home and I was stupid and had 2 small bags of peanuts and then a chocolate muffin on the train which was ridiculous.
I went to my cousin’s for supper and Fee cooked us a delicious tuna steak which was marinated in chilli and coriander and served with salad and new potatoes.
Followed by a panacotta with berries on top and then we had some Lindor round red chocolates. I did manage to restrain myself to having 3.
After a lovely supper (thank you Fee), I returned home and had some work to finish so another very late night for me followed by an early morning again!
I gave up tea and coffee on Saturday, relatively easily and had drunk none since i.e. 4 days without. However, I was so tired this morning and had so much work to do that required careful concentration, I treated myself to 2 Monmouth coffees. Much needed today, trust me. Late morning, the stress began to recede and I went to the organic juice stand and bought 2 smoothies; 1 for breakfast which I had not had time for and one for lunch. There was a green vegetable smoothie with wheatgrass and an Acaii berry with fruit juice. Both were slowly sipped and kept me going until I got home. Apart from these 2 juices and 2 coffees, I just had water and herbal teas throughout the day.
Lettuce for supper. Look how perfect this is. I feel such a massive sense of achievement for growing this. Served with 2 radishes, tomatoes, avocado oil and a large dollop of humous. Perfect. I made tomorrow’s smoothie with a pink grapefruit, blackcurrants, a banana and some almond milk. I made enough for 2 and popped them both in the freezer.
Everything seemed to come in twos today, including 2 posts in one blog. Double bubble.
