Happy Friday everyone! Boy am I glad the working week is done – this weekend couldn’t come soon enough for me 🙂
This week has been a bit of a whirlwind and I found myself reverting to old habits as my eating became increasingly disordered. Its funny, but as much as I can understand what is happening in those frantic moments when I raid the cupboards or head to the vending machine at work, I feel powerless to stop myself. As I write that I realise that it sounds silly – of course I have control and responsibility for my own actions. One thing I have reminded myself of this week is that eating like that doesn’t make me feel any better and it certainly doesn’t help me to deal with the stress any better 😦 I have started reading Intuitive Eating and I guess I have to treat these phases as a learning experience and move on. Tomorrow is another day!
Here are a few selected eats from the last couple of days:
Thursday lunch – ham salad sandwich, carrots and smoked paprika hummus.
Thursday tea: Curry leftovers
Out of the fridge…..
And on the plate!
This tasted even better second time around 🙂
Friday Dinner @ Pizza Express
I ordered the Vitabella, one of their new range of Leggera pizzas.
PizzaExpress has created an entirely new kind of pizza. It’s called Leggera, pronounced Lay-jer-ah, which means ‘light’ in Italian. It has a hole in the middle, and a salad in the hole.
Each one is designed to be about 500 calories, meaning that you can enjoy a tasty pizza without even the slightest pang of guilt.
My pizza with a hole(!) was topped with mozzerella, peppers, roasted veg and asparagus spears!
Thats mine at the front. Can you see the hole in it with a green salad in the middle? At the back you can see h2b’s giant chicken pizza (I had a taste of course 🙂 ). I really enjoyed the pizza and the toppings were yummy and light.
I decided to have a pudding too. The Caffe Reale,
Baby figs in a cinnamon and white wine spiced syrup with a dollop of mascarpone and served with a standard coffee of your choice.
I’ve never seen such tiny figs! This was a nice sweet ending to the meal served with an Americano coffee. The baby figs were delicious and the syrup complemented them perfectly. I also had a taste of h2b’s chocolate fudge cake!
Doesn’t that look amazing!
Now settled down in front of the tv watching highlights from Glastonbury! Have a good evening 🙂
