The day started with a raw porridge recipe from Kate Magic’s “Raw Magic” book. Raw oat groats are totally different to the standard oats you buy in the supermarket. They are denser and chewier….kinda nutty in flavour. Kate’s recipe calls for maca and lacuma. Maca, with it’s hormone regulatory powers, combined with caramelly lacuma, make for a super-powered breakkie. KA-POW!!!
Raw oats groats can be ordered online, from http://www.rawliving.eu. Lunch was non-vegan and a bit of cottage cheese with pineapple snuck into my dinner. I believe in listening to your body and the last few days, I’ve really fancied dairy products! Lunch – scrambled egg, tinned tomatoes and wholemeal toast with a side of raw reading material
Hehee! Yes that is my grandma’s flan dish that I used to eat my salad from! I felt like I was gonna have a salad explosion at the end of this meal – I was so full but happily so Eggs are great to keep hunger at bay.
Workout wise, I managed to have a long and leisurely gym session, featuring running, cycling and some ballet based leg work. As the next two weeks feature some days off work for me, I’m happy to say that I’ve been able to enjoy the luxury no time constraints. Running to a timetable at work is one of the most stressful parts of my job – it’s been a welcomed break from all that clock watching.
Of course, no week would be complete with a Starbucks date with Neens – they brighten my day THIS MUCH!! As always, we put the world to rights and chatted about Neina’s new blog, that is all about Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD). I’m so excited that Neens has been inspired to join the blogging community, as it’s such a great place!
Anyway….I’d better get my butt moving and wash these dishes before I head to bed!
Night night lovelies!
