I took a fruity breakfast to work again today. Mango, strawberries and kiwi.
Plus a canteloupe melon. This lot came in at a hefty 504 calories
I woke up feeling very unwell; sore throat, blocked cinuses and a headache. This was very bad timing as I had some important meetings I needed to be on form for. I saw on one of the Instagram sites I follow that star fruit is particularly effective in healing a sore throat so I set off to get some.
Good morning Trafalgar Square. I hadn’t seen the latest sculpture to adorn the 4th plinth before – I prefer this to the blue cockerel. Hello Picadilly. Destination = WFM They had some so let’s hope they work.All that fruit and a couple of decent coffees made me feel a bit better during the morning so I was able to stick with my lunch plans. I went out with a colleague from the office and it was my turn to choose where we went. Only one place for me today.
WFC. I love this place. I chose ‘The Wild Burger’ and what a good choice it was. We went early so it was quite empty to start with but it soon filled up. All the action takes place behind the orange counter. Everything is cooked/chopped/prepared there so you can see your food being made if you sit at the counter. It was sunny and warm enough to have the windows open. What bliss after winter to be sitting in a sunny, light filled room. This is The Wild Burger. It is an olive and shitake mushroom burger in sprouted wheat bread. Every mouthful was a real pleasure. I am definitely having this again. I estimate 571 calories for this. By the end of the day I was going downhill rapidly and I could barely speak. So I made a large bowl of comfort food; frozen bananas (4) with some watermelon, almond milk, peanut butter and cocoa powder. I topped it with some of my favourite toppings; desiccated coconut, cacao nibs and Goji berries. It had the consistency of a soft serve ice cream and was wonderful. Banana ice-cream is perfect for a sore throat. 807 calories.
