Custard Apple

I got out this morning and did a bit of walking around. My stomach didn’t like the movement that much, but the activity seems to have increased my appetite!

We got a custard apple in our fruit and vege delivery last week and by this morning it was very ripe. I decided to make custard apple oatmeal for breakfast. I made the oats with soy milk, cooked the custard apple into it, mixed in a bit of vanilla protein powder at the end, and topped it with some chopped pecans:

I got some of the texture and tang of the custard apple in the oats, but I think I would have enjoyed the custard apple more on its own.

For a snack I had hummus, carrots and celery:

Then a small coffee to help me meet my work deadline:

The benefit of not drinking coffee very often is that it has an immediate effect – I only needed half of this cup!

I enjoyed yesterday’s lunch so much I had it again today (sprouted grain toast topped with refried black beans, avocado, salsa and coriander, with salad on the side):

For a snack I had a sliced apple:

and some crunchy peanut butter mixed with cocoa and stevia:

I felt like ‘Mr Ed’ eating this – it really stuck to the roof of my mouth!

Dinner was a garlic tempeh stir-fry with peanut sauce:

And tonight I also had some dessert. Half a very ripe custard apple (so yummy!):

and a creme egg:

I forgot how sickly sweet these are!
