After my 3 month blip at the end of last year, I’m feeling pretty much myself again. I’ve missed me! I’m back to loving my food and eating without concern (helps that it’s vegan and my IBS isn’t as bad).
As it’s a monday, I thought today would be a good day to visit the books and get some studying done since I’ve happily done none all holiday. I need to decide on a topic for my dissertation asap/by tomorrow. There’s nothing like a deadline to get one’s butt into gear. Anyway, I’m sitting at the computer browsing for articles on my potential subject (health education and cardiac patients). Once I have found what I’m looking for, I go to open the article and the computer system needed won’t allow it! I’m sure there’s a more technical way of defining the problem but I don’t know what it is. And there goes my dissertation work.
Next up I decide to go to the gym for the first time in 2 weeks, I look out of the window and it’s snowing (again!). Of course, I can’t possibly go to the gym. I’m tired anyway from my lack of sleep last night and from doing very little. It’s not too cold, however, to go to the supermarket to stock up on food (and eat some of it on the way home). Yuh, you know how I feel… probs in hibernation mode.
And that sums up my day thus far. Productive. At least writing and publishing a blog post always makes me feel like I’ve done something.
Yesterday I was feeling camera-ready so I took photos of some of my food highlights. Here are the best bits:
Lunch was this gem, a jacket potato (which I don’t usually go for) topped with grated raw carrot and guacamole).
…basmati and wild rice, mixed with roasted veg (red peppers, cherry tomatoes, and parsnips). Accompanied by a green salad (which didn’t go down well at all, weird).
Yesterday was clearly more productive because I made these vegan and low fat chocolate-banana muffins:
Recipe to follow!
Originally I baked 10 but a couple of servings of this happened:
Clearly I’m powerless before anything containing chocolate.
Unpictured food may or may not include numerous apples, a glass of red wine and a substantial amount of dark chocolate.
I haven’t been as snap-happy today so I’m not sure when a post like this will come around next.
Hope this week’s started off well for y’all! xoxox
