Breakfast: 3 slices of wholemeal toast with Pure soya spread and Marmite.  2 mugs of Herbal tea.

Mid-Morning: a black coffee, a banana, a handful of raisins

Lunch: Sandwich made from 2 slices of wholemeal bread with houmous and slices of ‘Tofu Rosso’ left over from yesterday’s dinner, 500ml fairtrade apple juice drink, packet of Walker’s Salt N Vinegar crisps.

When I got in (hungry after cycling from work to an appointment and then home): A slice of rye bread with tahini and nori strips.

Dinner: some ready-made vegan ‘sausages’ (from Tai’fun Tofu – called ‘Sombreros’ – not bad!) with mashed swede and pickled red cabbage.  A pudding made from 2 x Alpro dark chocolate flavour soya desserts mixed with toasted museli (mmmmmmm!)

Herbal tea.

Breakfast:  Fruity tea.  2 slices Biona rye bread with omega 3.  1 slice spread with dark, creamed tahini.  1 slice with nori strips and spread with tangy tomato tofu paste.  A fresh kiwi fruit.  5 dates.

Lunch: Leftovers from the day before – roast parsnip, butternut squash, broccoli and cauliflower with beluga lentils.  A large handful of raisins. 500ml ‘FruitHit’ fairtrade orange juice.

Evening:  Bowl of museli with soya milk, herbal tea.  Wasn’t feeling hungry, or like having a big cooking session so just had this and got an early night.  Slept like a lamb for about 9 hours.

Good Morning!

The sun is shining in a clear blue sky this morning and it really does feel like spring is in the air!  It was a good morning for cycling to work, and I also woke up with a hunger for a breakfast with a difference.

It wasn’t planned and I don’t know what it was that prompted it, but, when it came to feeding myself this morning, I assembled a breakfast plate which was unlike anything I would normally eat.  I had:-

2 slices of Biona rye bread with omega 3, gently warmed in the toaster.  On one slice I had dark, creamed tahini.  On the other slice I had tangy tomato tofu paste and nori strips.

5 dates

A kiwi fruit

My breakfast plate was colourful, tasty and satisfying.  I enjoyed it a lot more than a bowl of cereal.

“Blimey! It’s taken her a while to get going!” I can hear you chortle. “It’s only, like, most of the world, that doesn’t eat sweetened, processed breakfast cereals, but has something savoury for breakfast…”

While others who know me will probably be saying, “Seaweed?! For breakfast…!”

I think I would probably have been in the latter camp a few weeks ago.  Breakfast meant something sweet, like toast and jam, or something creamy like a boiled egg.  It’s true that I’m missing boiled eggs, but I’m missing them a bit less this morning, because I’ve discovered that I can make a delicious breakfast out of all sorts of other ingredients.  Variety is definitely the way to go.  I must say I feel super-lucky to have all this variety.

(No pictures I’m afraid.  I still didn’t get up early enough to be messing about with cameras.)
