Ahhh, Back to Normal!


Well after yesterdays rather large blowout that took all night to recover from we are now back to our normal routine. Today’s breakfast treat was cereal with an apple topping – nice! After the usual elevenses came this rather tasty lunch:


What you’re feasting your eyes on (apologies for the quality of my photography) is wholemeal toast from a small loaf, spread with humus, topped with sliced olives and grated carrot. In addition, the usual side salad of leaves, tomato, beetroot plus a teaspoon of sunflower and pumpkin seeds, with a small amount of dressing.

Mid afternoon tea over and it’s time for dinner – here it is – hold on to your chair:P1000612

This is wholemeal penne pasta with a Quorn mince sauce consisting of onion, garlic, tomatoes, carrots, broccoli, capers and olives, there is also a smidgen of grated Parmesan cheese on top but it had melted by the time I had taken the photo! The important bit is that this consists of lots of sauce but only 2 ounces or 75 grams of pasta. We always finish with half an orange or a tangerine plus a small square of hard cheese to neutralise the acid on my teeth (apparently). It was really tasty even if it looks a bit splat-like –  ‘Petula’ did suggest that I shouldn’t post this as it looked rather like the dogs dinner!


I'd love to hear your thoughts...
