Day Sixteen - Make It Ten A Day

With careful planning it's so easy to get your Government recommended five fruit and vegetables a day. This is actually the minimum we need to eat to stay in optimum health; ideally it should be doubled to ten! This gives us antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, fibre, carbohydrates in abundance. This ensures that a large proportion of your diet is made up of natural, living foods and not chemically enhanced processed rubbish.
Breakfast: Mackerel fillet with poached egg and watercress. Peppermint tea.
Lunch : Cold turkey slices with left over ratatouille. Pau D'Arco tea x 2
Snack : Fake key lime pie, leftover from yesterday. Green tea. Coconut water- can from health food shop.
Dinner: Bolognaise sauce - John made it and it contained five vegetables; grated carrot, peppers, tomatoes, onion and spinach. Get your five a day in one meal!! Instead of spaghetti, I had ice berg lettuce straight from the fridge(full of minerals) and used the leaves to make 'parcels' with the bolognaise. Yum!
Dessert : Baked apple (exploded in the oven because I forgot to prick them so no picture but they tasted amazing!) stuffed with ground nuts, butter and coconut oil served with egg custard. All home made. No Sugar. Coconut water and mineral water mix to drink.
I felt SO full after dinner and for the rest of the evening- probably on reflection didn't need the two courses this evening!! Piggy!!
Day sixteen down- 26 to go!
