30 a Week Challenge Day 2

Meals on Monday:

Breakfast:  Banana & toasted crumpet ( needed eating up)


Red pepper and 4 cheese quiche with side salad eaten in our favourite plant nursery coffee shop. 

 Day 2 of the challenge and already I'm not sure how to record what I've eaten for my lunch shown above!  The side salad would be one of my 5 a day but the tiny amounts eg one slice of cucumber, sliver of onion etc are hardly portion sizes for the 30 a week challenge 😕 Maybe count cress?

Dinner: Poached eggs on seeded wholemeal toast (the toast counts as 1 point)

Snack: an apple

The total so far... 12.25 points... so far so good 👍

On the weather front, it's rained heavily all night so the garden and allotment have had a jolly good drink and the water butt is full. I didn't sleep well last night so today will be a gentle day. Nothing planned. 

Have a lovely day/evening (depending on where you are. Stay safe x

    1. It does, doesn't it. The thinking is that herbs and spices are plant based but used in such tiny amounts that they count as just a quarter each :/

  2. Your lunch looks delicious but I too would have wanted about three or four times as much salad 😊

    1. It was more of a garnish really, Jayne, more salad would have been lovely.

  3. That quiche looks amazing.

    God bless.

  4. I'd count the side salad as 1 serving of veg although there was quite a bit of variety.


Feeling Overwhelmed
