What a lovely day has been had, considering I wasn’t fussed about the Royal Wedding I ended up being sucked in by it all! I loved her dress and really enjoyed watching the whole thing.
I started my day with an awesome run. I went out in the cold crisp air for a 5 miler which I managed in 44 minutes with an average pace of 8.49, which I was really happy with. I can’t believe that my average paces are coming in consistently around the 9 minute mark!
Breakfast was a tasty citrusy berry smoothie containing romaine lettuce, an orange, mixed frozen berries, hemp protein powder, rice milk, a sachet of Emergen-C (I was worried I could feel a bit of a cold coming on so I popped this in my smoothie for a boost) maca and mesquite. I topped it with some fresh strawberries and some Alara In the garden goji muesli:
This was lovely! I also made a big pot of Earl Gray – and felt very British and patriotic while drinking it ;-)
We headed through to my parents to watch the wedding and enjoy a BBQ! It was a bit chilly so I layered up:
I made a lovely spring salad containing buckwheat, cucumber, sugar snaps and spring onions with a lemon oil dressing (lemon juice, cool oil, garlic):
I also had two Taifun tofu sausages with onions and ketchup:
Dessert was a big bowl of strawberries and pineapple:
I’ve been grazing on fresh fruit all day, almost to the point of feeling a bit sugared out! When we got home I had more fruit in the form of a bowl of chopped apple and plums with peanut flour and cinnamon sauce:
I had a few random things to use up in the fridge so I made a ‘fridge’ soup (well more of a stew really!) for dinner. This contained green pepper, carrot, veg stock, tomato paste, black eye beans, shredded greens, chipotle ketchup for added spiciness and spring onions:
This was surprisingly good for something thrown together! Dessert was some Conscious Lucuma Gold Raw Chocolate:
This was really unusual – it is quite firm and creamy. As well as lucuma it contains coconut oil which makes it really rich, yum!
In one week we will be heading state side to NYC!
I’ll try not to go on about it too much but I’m so excited I just can’t help it! I have a big shopping list for when I get there, although we only have a couple of days to try and go everywhere we would like to!
If you were off to NYC / US what would be on your wish list? If your from the US what would be your recommendations?
