What did you eat today?

Serious thread. I need to eat more fruit and veg and protein...

For breakfast I had a buttered bun and coffee, a carton of coconut water and a strawberry fruit School Bar (no seeds).

Lunch is going to be a pot of tea and a cheese scone in a café. Tea is going to be home made chips, mushroom pate topped with avocado and BBQ cheese in a bun.

Supper is going to be an apple.

Few slurps of Onken yog (breakfast) / apple (brunch) / large chicken salad baguette + another apple (lunch) / few slurps of Yeo Valley yog (afternoon snack). Will have a few beers later then will probably cook a pizza, leaving some for a cold pizza saturday breakfast.

Is it me or is pizza better cold?

widenation - 19 May 2017 13:47:35 (#4 of 2596)

Better cold.

A banana, far too many grapes, toast with butter, toast with butter and marmalade, toast with butter and rhubarb and raspberry jam. Two litres of tea.

I will be having Jersey Royals with something later.

JohnIlly - 19 May 2017 14:03:15 (#6 of 2596)

Two litres of tea.

I envy your bladder capacity.

flowbagging - 19 May 2017 14:05:41 (#7 of 2596)

There may have been a comfort break or two.

Cherries. Fried clams. Something called dulce. Rappie pie and fiddleheads.

Antimatter - 20 May 2017 01:24:39 (#9 of 2596)

Mmmmm, clams & fiddleheads, that time of year eh?

End of the week so I made an end of the week fridge bits fritatta, it was bogging. Washed it down with ginger beer to get the taste out of my mouth.

Catspyjamas16 - 20 May 2017 07:12:37 (#10 of 2596)

Yesterday. Scrambled eggs on wholemeal toast. A 12" chicken salad Subway shared with my mum. A veggie supreme pizza.

Rather a carby day.

I peeled and sliced an avocado for last night's salad, but I did not cut myself and go to A&E for those fashionable stitches.

Smoked salmon quiche with potatoes and asparagus

A selection of cheeses

phantlers - 20 May 2017 20:52:09 (#16 of 2596)

4 leeks cut into 2" lengths, half a dozen Jersey Royal new potatoes, quartered; garlic and onion, a handful of frozen spinach, a litle sliced fresh fennell, a piece of haddock fillet stirred in until flaked, smidgins of olive oil, palm oil and creamed coconut. Seasoning. A cup / quarter pint of single cream stirred in when cooled.

Made about a couple of litres, to be served at successive meal times until finished. It gets lusher.

SinnerBoy - 20 May 2017 23:47:58 (#17 of 2596)

Breakfast: cold pizza.

Later, warm pizza.

Then steak, peas and mushrooms.

I'm on an Italian ship and it's pizza Saturday. Unfortunately. I was amazed that they had food, as well.

Let me clarify: up at 15:00, pizza and tea, gym.

18:00, on shift. 18:30, warm pizza. They had croissants and bread buns, too.

23:00: real food!

foghorn - 21 May 2017 00:08:58 (#18 of 2596)

Caesar cocktail for breakfast. Nova Scotian white. Lemon tart. Some dark German malty bread, butter and sunflower sprouts, cheese and a shedload of beer. Probable home made blueberry pie and cream.

Antimatter - 21 May 2017 05:54:14 (#19 of 2596)

To Pho Hung for a B3, rice noodles with veggies, crushed nuts and chicken stir fried in lemongrass, very yum. Then I accidentally ate a whole large bar of peppermint Kit Kat. Pint of Kilkenny for F's birthday. Now I feel a bit sick and will never eat chocolate again.

Catspyjamas16 - 21 May 2017 07:54:59 (#20 of 2596)

Yesterday: Sausage toastie, cheese and coleslaw sandwich, tandoori chicken with dhal and rice (made by me not take away).
