This spurred us on.
I'm writing this after retching our way through the raw tomato soup for tea. It's says 'refreshing' in the book. In my opinion it was about as refreshing as finding a toenail clipping from an athletically footed toe at the bottom of a bag of walkers' cheese n onion.
In its defence, I've been brought up to enjoy my tomato soup hot, preferably Heinz, cream of. Granted, we have got posh of late and do buy those cartons of fresh tomato and basil - but I endure those. I'm all about the tinned!!
This was a thin soup of tomatoes and a handful of cashew nuts. It had half an avocado piled in the middle of it. I know this 7 day plan has been worked out to provide all the nutrients we need. But when the HG enquired about our lack of nutrients when we tipped it on the compost, we smiled and had a vitamin pill!
But there was light at the end of the grimness. Fluffy banana pancakes! I didn't take a photo because I scoffed mine down so fast it didn't touch the sides!
It's a shame the day ended so grimly ( pancakes aside) as breakfast was absolutely DIVINE!
Spinach ( undetectable! )
It was far easier on the taste buds than the eye!
Lunch was spinach and cannelloni bean soup. Again delicious, but one to enjoy blindfolded! Sewer juice sprang to mind when I saw it!!
Day 4 is my Birthday. In a minute I'm going to make cakes for the staffroom at work. I'm undecided if I will partake!
I honestly do not feel hungry and all craving for toast, crisps and biscuits have subsided. No headache either. Just a billion wees a day! I'm less achy of joint too!
This has been done as a bit of fun, a bit of a why not challenge and a bit of mama/daughter bonding! I know, should I stuff my face with processed high fat food on day 8 all my hard work will start to unravel! So I will simply carry on with a sensible healthy 3 meals a day regime. I've done it before, I'll do it again!
So my pretties, tomorrow I get to open that mystery box! I have no idea what it is! I'll be at work. It's Sex Education Nurse day. ( it always falls on my birthday!! ) There's also a big staff meeting where we are all told where we will be next year. So an 'exciting' day ahead!
Lots of love from
