I got up to discover an amazing sky this morning. It was a splendid mackerel sky and the tree branches and trunks, which are now definitely without any leaves, stood out as stark silhouettes. Quite stunning.
This is currently my favourite breakfast. Kale, spinach, brown Basmati rice and eggs. Very simple but nutritious and delicious. Served with a little soy sauce. Quite a modest bowl of this kept me completely sated for 5 hours which is great. I was spoilt with some fab presents this Christmas. I really like these packets which contain tinned fish which I am looking forward to sampling. They look too pretty to open though! Thank you Lucy for the fish and this gorgeous Tisane. It is lemongrass and purple bachelor button which I have never heard of before. I had not heard of Hands On Earth before either and they have some intriguing products which I hope to become better acquainted with this year. This was lovely. The smell of lemongrass alone was delightful and I enjoyed this mild flavoured tisane. I had a very light lunch as were having a roast dinner later on. I made up a large bowl of raw veggies; it was mainly mixed leaves to which I added celery, cucumber and tomato. As a simple dressing I mashed half an avocado with the juice of half a lemon and some salt. I stirred the dressing in to the salad and enjoyed it very much as it all tasted very fresh. I didn’t add any protein as I intended to eat meat later so decided to save the calories until then. James cooked diner tonight which was a very pleasant surprise as I do nearly all our cooking. It was great to have an evening off. I had roast pork with roast potatoes, brussel sprouts, carrots and peas with a small amount of gravy. It was really good.
That was it. No sugar. No Dairy. No Wheat. No alcohol. I drank herbal teas, black coffee and water throughout the day. I am very pleased with today’s efforts and am well prepared already for tomorrow, the first day back at work in 3 weeks!
