I cannot believe how fast time is flying this year. I'm back in London again and it hardly seems time at all since I was last here. It's insane.
Last night P and I presented some of the wines we want to serve at the wedding to our wine group. They went down very well, and we've found one for definite - the Viognier I was sipping on during my lazy day in the sun on Saturday. Our hostess had called me in the afternoon and asked if I wanted her to get some food together, and I had said yes - so there was the usual cheese and bread on the table. I admit, I had some. But by the time the tasting was over, and we had chatted to C the hostess who is also my caterer, and trekked all the way across London on the tube to get to P's house, it was too late to eat - let alone think about preparing ON food. So my calories for the day (in food) probably weren't too bad, but the nutrition probably could have been better - I was low in calcium, magnesium, zinc and iron again, and E.
Today I am going to go a little easier on myself and relax about food. I'm not going to start eating anything junky, but I have a lunch date with a friend and then will be eating with P tonight and I want to enjoy it. I want to rethink my daily foods - yesterday's mushroom salad at lunchtime left me feeling quite horrible all afternoon and I am wondering if I have reached mushroom-saturation! :-) The goal is still to get more nutrition into smaller, more calorie dense portions, especially with the summer coming on. I don't want to spend summer afternoons whaled out on mammoth platefuls of spinach.
So today so far... approx 200g strawberries, Total 0% with the Brewer's Yeast, flaxmeal, Gojis, pumpkin seeds and almonds, almonds and gojis (yummiest ON trailmix!), er... hummus and sauteed (I suspect) peppers on a flatbread wrap (I didn't eat the wrap), sauvignon blanc in the pub at lunch. Can I blame the sun? Unfortunately, not. I am just not a good CRON example! BUT I am still and will probably remain CR'd today. There are so many ways to do this and I wish April's detractors would realise this and stop fixating on the particulars.
