After being house-bound for the last 72 hours I was hanging to do something this morning. Had a lovely walk to the park. When we got home I had a breakfast smoothie made with water, chocolate protein powder, banana and rainbow chard:
Then I made the mistake of having some granola – my stomach was in agony afterwards. Anyway, I had it with lactose-free milk, and diced strawberries and feijoas:
Feijoas are common in New Zealand (people often have feijoa trees growing in their back yards in the upper North Island) but quite hard to come by in Melbourne. They are shaped like a roma tomato, but have firm green skins:
To eat them you cut them open and scoop out the flesh:
The texture is quite grainy. This one was only just ripe, so it was quite tangy. They can become quite sweet when very ripe though, almost like a banana.
The granola was pretty sweet so the tangy feijoa made a nice contrast. It was all a bit too much for my stomach though.
Craig made roast lamb for lunch, so I just had a side plate with a little bit of meat, a piece of pumpkin, a couple of small pieces of sweet potato and some broccoli:
Later in the day I had a snack consisting of some grapes:
and a vanilla protein shake:
Then a bit later another snack of an apple and almond butter
My stomach has definitely shrunk!
