I enjoyed eating today so much and only wanted healthy foods. I wanted to eat fruits and veggies and fish. Yes, fish, it was definitely a fish day.
I began well again with a juice and a bowl of fruit. I picked up a 500ml bottle of ‘Green Clean’ and a bowl of pineapple, mango and raspberries from Pure and made myself a green tea. The Green Clean is not for the faint hearted and I didn’t like it much. It was made with fennel, carrot, spinach and celery but just tasted of fennel. Too strong for me. I did enjoy the fruit pot though. At lunch time I walked over to Wholefoods Market at Piccadilly Circus and bought the most amazing salad. You choose your own from the salad bar and then pay by weight. It had salmon, tuna, Feta cheese, pecans, humous and black beans for protein and loads of vegetables. Name a vegetable and it could have been in here. It was a modest sized container so no danger of overeating and I loved every mouthful of it. Instead of rushing back to the office like I usually do I took 20 minutes to sit and eat in leisure. I sat just there, under the tree.I decided to walk back along a different street to usual and walked along Old Compton Street. I will try this Japanese cafe one day as I am developing rather a taste for green tea.
I walked past several bubble tea places and I have no idea what that is so there’s something else to go and investigate one day. I was really pleased to see several juicing bars on the street. Juice Tonic and Joe & The Juice. So happy to see these places here as it will make replacing one meal a day with juice so much easier. I will bring Lara and Harvey along here next time they come up to London too. My cup cake loving daughter would like Muriel’s Kitchen, or Patisserie Valerie or Paul’s Bakery which are along the same street. Harvey would want to go to Herman ze German as he loves Frankfurters. They would both enjoy a burger in here too. Another bubble tea place – what is that? I sipped water all afternoon and herbal tea. The chap I sit next to bought me a Monmouth coffee and I resisted it 🙂 I am trying to avoid caffeinated tea and coffee.
At home I made a really simple supper of a crab salad.Made with rocket, lamb’s lettuce, sugar snap peas, 100g crab, 2 tbsp mayonnaise and red grapes. It was a quick and easy and healthy supper.
I am pleased with how well I did today and inspired to keep going tomorrow.
Keep up the great diligence Zoe. Bubble Teas usually have Tapioca balls in the teas or fruit drink you get.
