Something very strange is going on around here. It has never happened to me before but it certainly is now. I am beginning to get very excited about eating vegetables. It seems that the more plant food I eat, the more I want to eat it. It is a wonderful feeling.
This morning he sun shone brightly. Of course it did – it was Monday morning! After the wet and cold weekend we just had it seemed irksome to wake up to such a lovely morning, knowing I had to head to London to sit in the office. I would have much preferred to be in the garden. I made a large fruit salad for me and a yogurt and fruit bowl for Harvey, which he added some ‘Fruit ‘n’ Fibre’ to. My large bowl of black grapes, 3 figs, raspberries and blueberries was delicious. I had a little visitor at lunch time. Meet Coco. She came up to the office with her lovely owner, Zoe, who I used to work with and they met me for lunch. We bought lunch at Food For Thought and took it to eat in the little gardens near the office. I had the mixed salad box which was lovely. Well, I think it was. I was so busy chatting I didn’t really think about what I was eating. Coco was quite content in her beach bag. For supper I fancied pasta with broccoli. I also had tomatoes and garlic. I cooked the pasta and steamed the broccoli. I heated up, gently, a slug of olive oil and very gently heated through the garlic and then added the chopped tomatoes. While I was in the garden picking some thyme I thought the Swiss Chard looked rather lush and so I chopped some of that too and added it to the pan with the garlic and tomatoes. One very quick and simple and delicious supper. This probably took 15 minutes from walking through the door to eating it (the pasta took 8 minutes to cook).
An very good day of eating today. Loads of veggies, lots of fruit, some wholewheat pasta and a bit of olive oil. I feel good!
