My day on a plate
Pete Evans, “chef” and Weight Watchers ambassador, has been making waves this week since he published “My Day on a Plate” which involved the “activated almonds” that have since gone viral.
So I thought I’d do you my day on a plate. I promise: No emu meatballs.
6.20am – Mug of coffee. Kenyan or Columbian drip (I’m up earlier than you, Mr Healthy!)
7.15am – Wheatgrass shot (before bike ride).
8am – Three Ryvitas with Manuka honey; small glass of orange juice (usually it’s plain yoghurt with fresh fruit and milled walnuts, flax seeds and something else ridiculously healthy but I’m out of yoghurt – shame).
9am – Cup of Ethiopian drip coffee (more fruity, less bitter than the other two).
12pm – Plate of Ikea vegetarian eggplant moussaka with mixed veg, plus strange Swedish looking cake called a “Mazarin Por” (no idea, but it had white icing and I’m a sucker for a bit of icing). Clearly I was at Ikea, I did not drive there specially. Honestly. (But, costing a total of Dhs 14 it has to be one of Dubai’s best value lunches EVER!)
3.30pm – Cup of tea.
5pm – Glass of Sauvignon Blanc and bag of Wotsits (glamour not, but I have told you before, I am not a foodie).
8.30pm – One mini veggie spring roll while waiting for…
9pm – Pint of Heineken and a halloumi cheese and rocket pita-bread wrap, with a handful of done-to-death fries (I suspect left over from lunchtime and re-fried, but then I am a cynic). Not the world’s best supper, but I was with Circles in the Sand and Where’s My Ruby Slippers (who isn’t as miserable as she sounds), which by far made up for the crummy nosh.
That is all.
PS Can anyone tell me what’s an activated almond?
