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
Rachel *'27' until tomorrow* Radiostar xxx

Happy Birthday Rach...wish I was in the staff room to enjoy your cakes. Why not drop yours in the bullet?!ReplyDelete
I wish you were in the staff room too! The thought of blitzing my cake did cross my mind.....Delete
I'm very proud of you for sticking to the 7 day plan because it looks and sounds less than appealing (some bits of it- others look and sound lovely). Hope you have a lovely birthday xxReplyDelete
I know I'm a bit melodramatic lol am at day 4 and it's like I've climbed Everest!! But I'm taking your praise and keeping it!Delete
Well by my calculation and the fact I am replying to your post on the 24th it must now be your birthday and I am dying to know a. what was in the box and b. did you learn anything in sex ed that you didn't know before.ReplyDelete
Thank you! The big reveal is on day 4 post lol and no, absolutely heard it all before!!Delete
Hope you have a lovely birthday and enjoyed the sex education lesson and whatever was in the box and whatever odd things you put in the blitzer thing!ReplyDelete
