Doesn’t Monday come round quickly? I do wish we could have a 3 day weekend so I could have a day to myself at home.
I was well organised for eating healthily today and did well with my eating but was too busy to do any exercise. I didn’t even go out at lunch time which is one disadvantage of taking your own food in.
Breakfast was a mango and an orange with … A bunch of grapes.
For lunch I had a huge bowl of salad. Tomatoes from the garden with cucumber, carrot and celery on top of roasted peppers, brown basmati rice and the salsa I made yesterday from avocado, tomato, red onion and sweet corn. I really enjoyed this and will make it again.
Supper was really easy too as it was left over rice and the lentil, spinach and ginger curry I had made yesterday. It is so nice to come home and have dinner ready and just waiting to be heated up. I also added some steamed carrots and peas, to pack in more veggies and to make the portions bigger as we both felt hungry.
I did have two snack attacks today. This afternoon at work I felt peckish so I had an apple and some popcorn.
Harvey wanted ice-cream after dinner so I made some! This was lovely and was all natural. Frozen bananas, cocoa powder, coconut and some almond milk. It did taste like chocolate and coconut use-cream and Harvey couldn’t believe I hadn’t put any sugar in it !
I also resisted coffee and tea and instead drank water and herbal tea today. I am very pleased with how I ate today and just need to try and make sure I do the same again tomorrow plus some exercise.
That ice cream looks delicious! I was just thinking of making a vegan cherry chocolate ice cream that also uses banana as the base so it was funny that you posted this at the same time. Will have to try this too one day!
Ooooh – cherry chocolate sounds yummy. Do you use fresh cherries?
Well, I haven’t made it yet, but the recipe called for frozen cherries, so I picked up a bag of frozen, no sugar added sweet cherries. I think it will be better for the ice cream consistency.
Good idea to use frozen ones, I am going to look for some👍😃
All looks so good! ~Bridgette
