Another good day on the eating front – checking in 1,148 calories and a short walk (better then none!).
Breakfast was a 2 egg omelette with roasted orange pepper, carrot and mushrooms.
294 calories.I had to go in to work today (thank you Suzanne and Jane for looking after Harvey) and I grabbed a soup from Apostrophe. I had a chickpea and spinach soup and it was excellent. On their website they give nutritional data for all their dishes except the soups as they vary each day. I did find a calorie calculation for a similar sounding soup from Apostrophe – pumpkin and lentil – so I am using that. I didn’t eat the bread it came with, in fact I gave it back.
I was in a different office today in the heart of the City. I enjoyed walking back over London Bridge to get the train. The walk was perfectly timed to catch sunset over the Thames. This glass fronted office would have lovely views across the water.
Not sure I would want to work in such a goldfish bowl though. Maybe I would for this view! Back home I made a vegetable curry to use up left over veggies in the fridge. I ground a mixture of spices in the pestle and mortar (cumin seeds, coriander seeds, mustard seeds, fennel seeds and caraway seeds) and fried them in coconut butter with onions and garlic. I lightly steamed some green beans and cauliflower which I added to the onions and spices with chickpeas, celeriac, kohlrabi and a tin of chopped tomatoes. I mixed it all together, added garam masala, turmeric, salt and pepper and left it simmering for about half an hour. Served with Cholula hot sauce. I couldn’t be bothered to make rice to go with it but actually it didn’t need it. The chick peas added enough carbs. This was very tasty and I had 2 bowlfulls.
Tomorrow’s lunch is in the fridge. I just need to prepare breakfast now and I am all sorted for tomorrow. Planning ahead is a bit of a bore to be honest but if I didn’t do it, I know I will be tempted to eat the wrong things as I am in an all day meeting tomorrow. Food will be provided but I am quite sure it will not be diet friendly.
