Normal Service Has Resumed

And it feels nice and good and easy - long may it continue!

Today started the best possible way a Monday could start


Followed by a nice big bowl of porridge with rice milk and topped with granola

I've lost my picture :( but this one is pretty so I'll use that instead even thought it's totally irrelevant.

I had a little satsuma to snack on before lunch, which was a salad - mixed salad leaves, 1 avocado and a couple of slices of parma ham drizzled with 1 tsp balsamic vinegar - tasted beautiful but the avocado was a bit too ripe and mushy, the texture kind of grossed me out a little

And I just had me a perfect grande tripple shot latte topped with cinnamon from Starbucks (see Twitter) I thought I would be bouncing off the walls afterwards but I feel fine. Apart from the twitchy legs and scary speed of my typing... *cough*

Some other nice foods from the last couple of weeks:

Maply syrup granola bar - OK so it has sugar as the second ingredient (shock horror!) but it was damn tasty and I wont mind having one or two of these again in the future!

Lovely fresh apple juice - granny smith apples give such a beautiful colour!

This was really naughty. I blended two homemade Bailys truffles (in the freezer from christmas time) with a banana and some rice milk - it was beautiful! But the truffles are just cream, chocolate and Baileys - not really breakfast food!

Pre-run spoon of almond butter on Friday, amazingly this got me through 45 mins running plus 40 mins walking.

Rye bread toasted until almost burnt and topped with Whole Earth crunchy peanut butter and blobs of coconut butter - as you eat it the heat from your hands/breath melt the coconut butter - the only way to have rye bread!

Smoooooothie - I think it was banana, banana protein powder, cocoa powder, cinnamon... I'm not really sure, but it wasn't as good as a Chocolate Cinnamon Smoothie in a Bowl!

Sorry for all the pictures, I just hate when I take photos and don't get round to posting them, feels like such a waste. And it helps me feel like less of a nutter if I have a reason for having taken them!


  1. i love the sunflower seed rye bread topped with guacmole or almond butter never tried with coconut butter on xx
