I felt great today. I was alert, full of energy and happy.
I woke up too early so got up and prepared lunch and breakfast to take to the office. All packed up and ready to go. I also took some soya milk so I can make tea during the day and try to stay away from the coffee shops. Breakfast was half a large Piel de Sapo melon and lots of raspberries. The melon was so sweet and juicy, it made an excellent breakfast. I took a trip to Wholefoods Market at lunch time because I wanted to have a walk in the sunshine and I needed a few groceries. I had taken my salad in to work today which I munched while reading my new book. It was made with a variety of green leaves, cherry tomatoes, cucumber, celery, brown Basmati rice, and roasted veggies left over from the weekend. I added 1 tbsp of pumpkin seed butter as a dressing. I will keep that in my desk drawer to add to future salads. I have had pumpkin seed butters I prefer but I chose this one because the ingredients are 100% pumpkin seeds with no added fats or salt. Delicious and this kept me going until supper time. I made a huge stir fry for supper, using a colourful array of veggies. Plus some mixed sprouts and this fantastic tofu. It tastes lovely and has a firm texture which is easy to cook as it doesn’t break apart when you cook it. I griddled the tofu and ate 4 slices. This is one and a half packs so I had about 100g of tofu which was plenty. Served on a bed of quinoa and garnished with coriander, sprouts and green chilli. I seasoned the veggies with soy sauce, garlic and fresh ginger while I cooked them. It was very tasty and both Harvey and Matt enjoyed a bowlful too. I was very pleased to see Harvey chomp his way through this lot.
So having eaten a very healthy supper, Harvey and I popped along to David and Annette’s to watch the International Space Station as it orbited over their house. It was very lovely, standing in their garden with a glass of red wine, listening to lambs bleating and looking up at the sky. Conditions were perfect for star gazing as there was no moon and no clouds and the space station was very easy to see. It was great and Harvey said on the way home, that he didn’t need science lessons when he had David, who had kindly explained orbitting to him.
So an interesting end to a good day. The numbers aren’t so good so I need less fat tomorrow.
