    Yesterday was a Lovely Day Out with quite a lot of activity and out of routine-ness, food-wise.
    B: slice of buttered toast, raspberries and soya yogurt
    Packed lunch: Soya Sausages, sandwich bag full of mixed salad with some cherry tomatoes and a satsuma.
    Train journey: snack pack of cheddar cheese and bag of salad.
    Supper. Philadelphia cheese with pine nuts and mixed roasted seeds.

    So today -
    B. strawberries and cream
    L. Emmental cheese, cherry tomatoes, salad, raw mushrooms. Finished off the soya yogurt with a satsuma.
    D. Omelette with steamed cauliflower, broccoli, spring onions, leek, green beans and mushrooms.

    (Edited because I remembered yesterday wasn't as cheese filled a day as I thought it was, it just felt like it!)

    Oooh - I'd been thinking about home-made hummus, that recipe looks good.

    Thursday -

    B: Strawberries and double cream.
    L: Lettuce, cherry tomatoes, raw mushrooms, hummus.
    D: Steamed vegetables (cauliflower, broccoli, leek and mushrooms) and grated cheese.

    Friday - Day out and unexpected lunch out. I ate the packed lunch whilst waiting for the fourth cancelled train of the day.

    B: Crackers and butter, strawberries and double cream
    Lunch Part One: Egg mayonnaise sandwich.
    Lunch Part Two: Lettuce, cherry tomatoes, Quorn cocktail sausages, satsuma.
    Dinner: Cheesy omelette with red onion, green pepper and mushrooms.

    I'm also trying a small bit of cheese or nuts just before bed to see if that cons my liver into good behaviour at dawn.

  9. Yesterday:

    Brunch: tofu wiener, lots of coffee throughout the day
    Dinner: red Thai curry, pappadums, spicy yogurt dip.

    I tried the vegan Quorn bits in the curry for the first time. They are as tasty as the regular pieces, but broke up quite a bit. This may have been my fault though :oops:

  13. What part does flax play in the dish as I am funny about flax? If it acts as a binder, I could maybe use a chia egg.
     
  14. @Rosieshe I will give the burgers a go tonight and let you know how I get on. I like trying new things. Thanks for sharing x

    I like the look of this! Thank you.

    I've got some tofu for a protein change and have everything else except the spinach so I'll give it a try soon.

  17. Brunch: cold leftover curry
    Dinner: spinach and tofu burger, coleslaw made with eggless mayo
    Pudding: 20g vanilla Swedish Glace (5g carbs) with strawberries. I forgot how sweet food is!

    [​IMG]

    I enjoyed the spinach and tofu burger and imagine it would be great for breakfast. Used a slightly different recipe that used peanut butter as a binder. I think Rosie's burger would pack more flavour though with the paprika and cumin :)

    Yesterday and today have been much the same

    B: Strawberries and greek yogurt
    L: Lettuce, cherry tomatoes, raw mushrooms, hummus and a small chunk of extra-mature cheddar cheese.
    D. Eggs - omelette yesterday and hard boiled today. Steamed veggies yesterday and salad use-up today. A few raspberries with a dollop of clotted cream. :)

    However, I had a real dip mid afternoon today, and had a couple of slices of Burgen toasted. It did not affect me as Friday's bread did, and when I tested a couple of hours after eating it, having been for a walk, all was absolutely fine.
