I photographed EVERYTHING I ate AND drank today.
I breakfasted on a sandwich from M&S filled with Turkey, Pastrami and Emmental with a cup of tea
A little bit later I had a cafe au lait and an almond croissant. EEK !!!!!!!!!
2 glasses of water
I took myself out at lunch time to Wild Food Cafe and had their salad special of the day which was called ‘The Philosopher’s Salad’ and I had it with their shot of the day.
The lemon and ginger shot was powerful stuff. I knocked it back and it was really strong. Initially I wondered what was going to happen and then I enjoyed the after glow. It was unusual and something I would try again.
The salad was awesome.
One of the best salads I have had for a long time. I have never had raw parsnip and it was tasty. The parsnip and carrot was sliced ultra thin in to wide but very thin ribbons and both were excellent. The salad also had a variety of green leaves, green beans, asparagus, mini sweet corns, radishes, figs, seeds and a very light green dressing which I am guessing had avocado in it. Fabulous.
Another cup of water
Another cup of tea
Back at home I had a mug of Rooibos green tea.
I made a very simple supper of green leaves (spinach, pea shoots and rocket) with tomatoes from the garden and half a Burrata. The tomatoes were fantastic, especially the red ones. They were firm but not too firm and so sweet and juicy. I may not have grown many but the ones which did grow were well worth it.
The Burrata was gorgeous. Very creamy and mild tasting. I really like the consistency because it is super soft in places but also has firm bits and ribbons of Mozzarella. the olive oil was top quality too and the only other accompaniment was some freshly ground black pepper.
If only I hadn’t had that croissant and cafe au lait, today would have been a good one for a woman on a diet!
