    This morning 250g closed cup mushrooms, one slice of black pudding (superfood), two double yolk farm eggs and an extra thick rasher of bacon fried in beef dripping as I do most mornings. Pub dinner consisting of 12oz Ribeye steak (rare) and 4 large flat mushrooms with side salad. For tea cauliflower cheese. A great day.
