A better day! Today I am not feeling constantly starving – or as binge-y as Monday’s often feel!
Just wanted to apologise for my failure to publish my post about Saturday’s day out yesterday! My PC crashed and by the time I’d rebooted I’d forgotten that it happened while I was uploading the post. I’m annoyed with myself because this is a recurring problem with the PC I’m using and its not the first time that I’ve posted later than I intended to as a result – though its not usually the next day!
Breakfast: All bran and Dorset Cereals Exotic Pineapple and mango combined (I’d run out of peaches) and some toast with laughing cow (from now on to be known as LC since I’m sick of typing it!)
Lunch: Split pea, barley and vegetable soup and a wrap stuffed with slow cooked beef, cucumber, tomatoes, spinach and a smear of horseradish sauce. Followed by a little chocolate pudding made by blending a pack of silken tofu with cocoa powder and xylitol and topped with reduced fat crème fraiche. It isn’t very sweet, which I’m fine with, but I didn’t use enough cocoa powder so I’ll increase that next time – or maybe even add some chocolate whey to boost the protein even more.
Dinner: Vegetable curry with millet instead of my usual brown rice and a little cucumber & tomato. I’m afraid the curry was made with a jarred sauce as curries are not one of my talents – which is why a proper home-made curry WILL be making an appearance on an ‘80 meals’ day one of these days! Even though I cheated, I really enjoyed this meal! Colourful, isn’t it???
Snacks: Protein smoothie; Popcorn
