Day Nine - lunch out!


Today's blog is unofficially sponsored by...

I had lunch out with a friend today, so I was spared from the 7.30am lunchbox packing chore. I chose a curry from the limited but tasty Waitrose café menu (all glam, us!), which lasted me well into the late afternoon’s gym session.

Tea. My first tea time with no sandwiches, as "hot dinner" was at lunch today. This is why I prefer to have packed lunch at noon and a hot dinner at home in the evening. Something to look forward to, creative time in the kitchen (!!) and something to warm you up, but sandwiches, or their bread-free alternatives don’t really tick either of these boxes.

However, I had a flash of cuisine inspiration while pounding and sweating on one of the Towcester leisure centre's cross-trainers. A tomato salad would be fresh, full of vitamins, and lacking in the all important wheat and yeast. Olives, a little crumbed goats cheese, lettuce and some capers made for a delicious (albeit summery) dish for my late October evening. It meant ANOTHER trip tp Tesco, but it was well worth it. Delicious!

Bloat-o-meter: 4/10 for the curry. Could do better.
                           1/10 for the salad. Top marks!
