I can eat again – yippee :-). I broke my juice fast with …….. green juice ! And a bowl of homegrown raspberries. Delicious.
At lunch time I was on a mission to get to a particular cafe. I like this walk along the white tunnel and out in to the colourful world of Neal’s Yard. I was heading up to the Wild Food Cafe. A vegetarian restaurant that makes a lot of raw food dishes. I sat on a stool at the counter and enjoyed watching the activity in the kitchen in front of me. I chose the tropical salad and a glass of water. It contained lettuce, beansprouts, tomato, yellow pepper, green papaya, fresh coconut, mixed seeds, marinated cashews and nori seaweed with an avocado dressing. It was very crunchy which was just what I wanted after all that juice. I enjoyed crunching through and chewing every mouthful.It was a lovely sunny day in London and the windows were wide open which helped to bring some of that end of summer sunshine inside.
At home I went to the local leisure centre to weigh myself. I haven’t been for a couple of weeks but I am 4 pounds less than when I last went so I am happy with that. My weight has yo yo’d up and down this year quite drastically but I am 11 pounds down on the year and 3 stone and 2 pounds less than when I started. So moving in the right direction. For me, the main thing is to maintain the loss so I am focusing on that and aiming for a 1 – 2 pound loss next week too.
At home, Lara helped me cook supper. We made another Mary Berry recipe, tonight’s was a curried lentil and spinach soup. It was easy to make and tasty too. Each portion of soup was only 100 calories (Mary gives you the calories per portion in each recipe). I could happily have eaten 2 or 3 portions but everyone wanted a bowl so I added a wholemeal roll with ham.
This recipe took about half an hour from start to finish and it was nourishing and tasty so a good find.
I wonder what I will eat tomorrow.
Congratulations on a great 5 Day Juicing and breaking the fast in a very healthy way. Enjoy the new cookbook and teaching Harvey to cook.
Of course congratulations on the weight release from your last weigh in. Just keep remembering how much healthier you feel with healthier foods to energize you and your weight coming down to not be so hard on your body inside and out.
Thank you Laura. I agree with you and know I feel better when I eat better. I really want to keep healthy this time and stick to a very healthy diet.
