I promised to remember to tell you about the day with my daughter. We swam, we tried on clothes for my son’s forthcoming wedding, we ate a mahooosive salad, with quinoa which she made for us with kidney beans, tofu, cucumber and lashings of pepper. The high when your children cook for you….
I thought the quinoa might bloat me, and it did the next day, but I drank some water with lemons, and that has cleared it.
We also made biscotti (an Italian biscuit). She’s been baking on her own, and like I was, is putting way too much sugar in her sweet baking. We reduce the recipe sugar by half. I still found the biscotti too sweet when we ate them.
I’ve resisted chocolate, most days since my last blog. I’ve taken up eating a baby tub of tuna (they sell it In Tesco for a couple of pounds for 3 baby tins) with cheese for breakfast.
I really do not like the taste of most chocolate anymore, and it has been almost two months since I began to reduce my intake of it. It tastes far too sweet.
One of my favourite chocolates is flake. I bought and ate a flake while at work yesterday. I haven’t checked the sugar content, because the typeface on the packet is too small to read with my non-prescription glasses. It doesn’t taste too sugary, compared to snickers or the white chocolate. I’m not sure why that is.
I’ll post a picture of my old tummy, of which I am very proud. Not bad for 53. Remember, while I may be slim, I’m still at high risk of diabetes.
Eat well, and look after your health.
Bye for now,
