I always feel really tired on a Monday but today I didn’t feel as tired as usual. My itchy rash gradually cleared up towards the end of last week and was gone by Sunday so it was a relief to go to work and not feel the need to hide my face. In fact the colleague I sit next to commented it was nice to have me back without my “boils and warts” !!!! Charming but I am pleased to be back to normal. Work was ok and I ate lots and lots and lots of plants today.
I brought breakfast in from home and it tasted much better than this photo makes it look. Chia seeds in soya milk with coconut yogurt, blueberries and a banana.
I brought lunch in too. Left over roasted courgettes, peppers and butternut squash from last night’s dinner with chickpeas, cucumber, tomatoes and celery. Not bad at all. Supper was very left over Bombay potato and spinach daal. When I say “very left over”, it was left over from 2 weekends ago. I seem to have inherited my Father’s disregard for a use by date and age of a food and instead check it for mould or a bad smell. If neither of those are in evidence then it is fit for eating. I had it with some stir fried (in coconut oil) cabbage, kale, onions and mushrooms. The blob on top is some lime pepper jelly It tasted fine.
So another day of good eating is behind me. I am really pleased that I am getting in to the habit of eating so much plant-food, taking what I need in to work and enjoying it. I rarely need a snack between meals which is a good sign as I must be balancing my blood sugar with these vegan meals of mine. I am also saving money by taking food in rather than eating out all the time. So a pretty good Monday and I am looking forward to Tuesday.
Wow! Lots of vegetables. I am trying to have seven a day. And I have decided to start liking mondays just like I have decided to start liking mornings.
I am finding it easier to eat so many plant foods. PLanning ahead is definitely helping. I like mornings anyway but not Mondays but I like your idea of trying to like them 🙂
