What I ate Wednesday
I’ve decided today to leave the fashionistas to their “What I Wore Wednesday” (WIWW) memes. Frankly, my own WIWW is so boring it doesn’t make a blog: White cropped trousers, navy and white striped Breton long-sleeved tee-shirt, patent leather flip-flops, neutral Tod’s bag.
So I thought I’d do “What I Ate Wednesday” instead as I always find it interesting to see what other people eat in a day. People are also always asking me, “As a vegetarian, what do you eat? Pasta?” So, here you go – here’s what I ate today:
6.30am: Filter coffee.
8am: Two tablespoons of low-fat natural yoghurt with fresh raspberries and blueberries and one spoonful of oat granola.
9.30am: Filter coffee.
(I had a Park ‘n’ Shop hot-cross bun at the ready but wasn’t hungry enough to justify eating it. It’s in the freezer now.)
12pm: Medium-sized baked potato with cheese, and a small green salad with oil / balsamic dressing.
A small apple.
3pm: Cup of tea and a 1cm slice of Park ‘n’ Shop Farmhouse cake (non-nom). Not necessary, but utterly delicious, especially the crunchy sugar bit on the top. My justification was, of course, “I won’t drink tonight, so I have calories to spare….”
5pm: One bag of Cheddars and a glass of Sauvignon Blanc (my discipline goes out of the window around this time).
7pm: Another glass of Sauvignon Blanc (bored waiting for kids’ bedtime).
8pm: Annabel Karmel’s vegetarian cottage pie* made with green lentils, courgette, carrot, onion and peas with mashed potato topping. Mixed side salad with lettuce, cucumber, carrot, kidney beans and balsamic/oil dressing.
One glass of Merlot (I hope it’s only one – I’m not quite there yet!).
How about you? What did you eat?
*If you make this cottage pie, leave out almost all of the sugar – it’s too sweet with it. I also add a sprinkle of chilli powder, and a few slugs of red wine. Mmm.
