I am having a much-needed rest day as I don’t work on Wednesdays. I’ve been getting back to work after being really unwell with my ME and Fibromyalgia, so the return has been exhausting. I’m really pleased that I’m making some small improvements though 🙂
My usual disclaimer, these photos are from yesterday. So without further ado, here’s what I ate!
For breakfast I had a strawberry Activia yogurt (interesting side note – until a few years ago I couldn’t have these as they used to contain a non-vegetarian colouring agent called cochineal, which is essentially crushed beetles…! Thankfully they changed the recipe a while ago). I also had some red and green grapes and a slightly under-ripe banana (I don’t like them very ripe but this was a little on the crunchy side haha!)
I was going straight from a blood test to work so I needed to take something portable and easy to eat, so I had this 4 bean salad from the Tesco Finest range. It’s one I’ve had many times before and it’s really tasty! It comes with a herby dressing and is quite high in protein, so I’d definitely recommend it for any fellow veggies (or vegans!)
I also snacked on this original three seed “protein top up” from Graze. My mum-in-law sent me a surprise Graze box which contained about 12 of these little squares – half were these three seed ones, and half were cocoa & vanilla. They are a fab snack for veggies/vegans as they contain over 4 grams of protein. They are also really tasty!
I had “bangers and mash” using Quorn vegetarian sausages (I usually prefer Linda McCartney ones but this is all we could find in the small Tesco near us). The mash was a combination of regular and sweet potato. I also had some green beans, baby corn and asparagus (I love asparagus!). My husband made some mushroom and onion gravy but I put it on after I took this photo, as despite tasting nice, it doesn’t look too appealing!!Never miss another post from me!
