Ello Ello (said in a creepy police bloke voice…). Aight?
Ooohh guys, I had my first day as a Cancer Research charity shop volunteer today! It went pretty well I think! The shop is much smaller (and WAY less organised) than the last shop, so it’s very, very cramped in there..but I was kept busy, AND I picked up a gorgeous River Island (USA and other people – a shop kinda like Top Shop, which I’m sure you’ve heard of) scarf, for just £2!! BARGAIN.
Food wise – last night, seeing as I was super mega pleased with my run, I treated myself to my favourite foods 😀 Tempeh, with a sauce (banana, maple syrup, cinnamon raisin swirl peanut butter, cinnamon), and cocoa durum wheat/lentils, and cocoa parsnip/courgette/squash/brussel sprouts and beet – it was like candy party time on my chopping board :p
SO. PRETTY. I wish ALL food looked like those groovy striped beets!! They remind me of this bloke:
(Mr Blobby, not Noel Edmonds) That’s not so good…the cat is better:
HEHE! But anyway, I’m digressing. This was my food:
It was really quite darn delightful.
Whilst watching a horse programme on das home kino, I had some yogurt mixed with 1tsp date syrup and Fru-Dust all clumped together like a hairball:
And 3 lil squares of dark raw (RAWR – ohemgee, loves it too!) chocolate:
Today started something like this:
Plums, banana, pear, cereal, milk, yogurt, vanilla extract, xanthan gum, flaxseed….topped with the fresh blackberries I picked before breakfast 😀
So for lunch, my thinking went something like this:
‘I want something full of protein as I’ll be working all afternoon and don’t want to get hungry’ = seitan.
‘I need an easy to eat carb’ = bread,
‘I want some B12!’ = savoury spread.
‘I hate savoury spread on its’ lonesome!’ = blackstrap molasses.
‘Oh my, that’s a lot of plums sitting in my fridge.’ = plums.
‘I wish I had some cherries.’ = cherry tomatoes.
‘I don’t want to turn the nasty dehydrating overhot fan oven on’ = raw carrots and courgette.
‘Oh my, I STILL have a lot of plums in my fridge.’ = more plums.
Therefore, lunch turned into this:
Yes. That is a seitan, molasses, savoury spread and plum sammeech. Maybe it’s weird..but I bet when someone suggested elderflower ice cream, or green tea ice cream, or chilli chocolate, or peanut butter and jelly or….ok, I can’t think of anymore, but I bet when people came up with them, folk gasped in horror and said ‘WTF!?’. We have to start somewhere 😀
ANYWAY – It was actually a really good sandwich! Not 10/10, but I certainly liked it. I didn’t eat the plums though..no room!
When I got home, I inhaled an apple, wrote the last bit of this post..and now I’m gonna go cook my dinner!
Have a good one 🙂
Question – Do you have any weird food combinations that you love, but that other people find immensely weird? I ADORE dry cereal, no milk <- my mum frowns upon that! And my need to put cinnamon and cocoa on EVERYTHING is sometimes thought of as weird…otherwise I’m quite boring 😛
What are you having for dinner tonight?
PS – lots of good things coming up! I have a challenge post tomorrow, Horsey Humpday, my appointment with the sports nutritionist…stay tuned!
PPS – Ohhhh my GOSH y’all! My best friend just texted me, the one who I went to stay with in Washington DC in 2007 (she lives in England but has family in the states), and she just invited me….TO NEW YORK TO STAY WITH HER NEXT SUMMER!!! Holy cow. I better start saving!!!
