Yesterday my diet was practically fat free… my body craved it today. It is always a good idea to listen to your body ONCE you have been pretty much MSG/Laboratory food free for several weeks..it normally tells you what you need. So today 3 of my 4 meals have contained organic, chemical free Earth Balance vegan margarine (I use that for my butter and margarine allowance) and I’ve had some oils in my raw sunflower seeds..
Lunch was a bit of a disaster, I was extremely busy in the garden and needed something to grab. I opened a can of peaches and shared them between the girls and I… gulp! That would have been around 24 points during WWII !
Lentils and split peas were commonly used during WWII so I used some red lentils (1/2 cup) and 3 cups of legumes and made a thick gravy to accompany my carrot and potato mash (skins left on of course)
Finally I have supper to look forward to- I am now wanting something sweet so I anticipate having a couple of eggless pancakes slathered with strawberry jam tonight especially as I seem to have burned up a lot of calories in the garden today… woo hoo!
