Today is the day we vote for our next Government. Well hopefully it is; according to the polls it is so close we may not know in the morning who has won so there may have to be another coalition or even another election later in the year.
This is a 2 day catch up blog.
Yesterday I began the day with a large fruit salad. 1 pink grapefruit, 1 orange, 1 kiwi fruit, 1 fig and a handful of blueberries. This was very enjoyable indeed. And so colourful and pleasing to the eye. I treated myself to a gorgeous latte from Timberyard mid-morning. It was a busy day so I grabbed a veggie bowl from Chipotle for lunch. Hard to see what there is underneath all that lettuce, guacamole and sweetcorn. There was brown rice, 2 types of beans and roasted peppers with chilli sauce. Yummy. I was going to have a large plate of roasted veggies for supper but I was invited up the road to join Annette and David for supper so off I went. What a lovely treat that was. We had home made Puttanesca sauce (tomatoes, olives and capers) with pasta and a huge green salad made with lots of leaves from their garden. I had a great evening and it was even better for being unexpected and just up the road. The red wine was enjoyed too. Thank you very much Annette and David.
Today I had 4 apples for breakfast and another soy milk latte.
I went out for lunch with Owen from work. he found an organic vegetarian Italian restaurant round the corner in Holborn called Amico Bio . I stupidly left my glasses in the office so I couldn’t actually read the menu which was frustrating. So I asked the waitress to recommend something that was vegan. She was incredibly helpful and made several suggestions and I went for this one:
Piadina integrale di seitan e vegetali, salsa di peperoni rossi, insalata di carote, finocchi e cetrioli
Seitan and vegetable kebab, pepper coulis, carrots, fennel, cucumber, yogurt and cucumber dip £10.00 (Vo)
She served it with vegan mayonnaise instead of yogurt. Well I think this was what it was – hard to tell when you haven’t read the menu. Whatever it was, it was delicious. I loved it. I just had water with the meal and an espresso afterwards.
I really enjoyed the food and the waitress was excellent. I have no idea why there was only one other table occupied in there. I hope it is usually busier in there as I want to go back.
I made a large smoothie for supper with 2 frozen bananas, fresh pineapple and blueberries.
So 2 ok days with the diet. The huge portion of pasta and too much red wine wont have helped lose weight but it was all so very pleasant I don’t care. I can be better then ever next week, but I do have a huge party weekend lined up. I can’t wait 🙂
