I realised today that everything I ate and drank came in a box or container!
I really needed a coffee this morning and there is only one place to go for one of those! Perfect. I then had two mugs of hot water, one with lemon and one with mint. Mid-morning I had a banana berry crunch smoothie which I made first thing at home. So good. This is the smoothie I blogged about a few days ago and is made with freshly squeezed apple juice, berries, banana, natural yogurt and some seeds. I went for a walk at lunch time to Wholefoods Store at Piccadilly Circus to grab another one of their lovely buffet salads. Walking back to the office my eye was drawn by the trail of little lights in the pavement and I followed them to see what was in the sunshine. This little courtyard with a very unusual sculpture and a tree with seating underneath. I was thinking I could go and sit there and enjoy eating lunch in the fresh air. However, when I got there I saw why no one else was siting there. Clearly, lots of birds enjoy sitting in that tree! So I gave up and returned to work so as usual lunch was eaten in the office. This was such a yummy salad, eaten out of the recycled cardboard box it came in. I was feeling very hungry so I had a lot of protein; salmon, tuna mayonnaise, egg mayonnaise, black beans, pecan nuts, seeds and Goat’s cheese. I know that is a long list but it was only a small spoonful of each one.
Underneath the protein were lots of veggies which made this an excellent salad.When I returned home from London I had about 20 minutes before going out again to collect Harvey so I made a snacky supper to eat in the car; celery with some Camembert, little squares of Gruyere and green grapes. Eaten from the box in the car.
I am working from home tomorrow so I may manage to be more civilised and perhaps eat from some china!
