The Twenty-second Day of the First Month
Today went well. Breakfast (at work around 10am) was a no-bake oatmeal breakfast bar, a few raw nuts, and an apple.
Lunch (around 1pm) was quite substantial: sesame Ryvita with vegan pate (yeast-based), a Little Gem lettuce, a small banan... Read more
The Twenty-first Day of the First Month
The home-made choco-mint ball was great. Although while I was at work and the Bounce Ball was in my bag, my mind kept going to it - so in the end I gave it to a work colleague to get it away from temptation! Phew!
I also made a little bit... Read more
The Twentieth Day of the First Month
The new challenges are colourful and motivational - they are like an enhanced version of Spark Streaks really, based on the Fast Break goals. The initi... Read more
The Nineteenth Day of the First Month
I ate my curry this evening before I remembered about taking a photo - so you've been spared!
It was a curry full of veggies, with some raw peanuts mixed in, and some poppadoms on the side. Nice.
I was OK today - my breakfast (at work... Read more

Tonight I tried some red lentil pasta, which I've not had before - it had a good texture, is just made from lentils - amazing!

The Sixteenth Day of the First Month
Today I am back on track.
I had porridge for breakfast - with some cranberries (gosh, yes, they were probably 'sweetened' a little), Allspice, and some chopped almonds. I chose not to toast the almonds, as toasting things gives them a very... Read more
The Fifteenth Day of the First Month
The 'good' 'raw' 'vegan' sugar-free' Pulsin snack bars I bought last week have been causing me problems. Too tempting. I won't buy them again. I seem to be OK with the Nakd' bars, so I'll stick to them.
Well, it was a good day foodwise... Read more
The Fourteenth Day of the First Month
It has been a bit of a Sunday kind of a day! I worked a sleep-in shift last night, so got home about 11am. I ate my clemantine at work, and my breakfast bar whilst I was waiting for the bus home. I had resisted the urge to go into Costa and sp... Read more
The Thirteenth Day of the First Month
Three photos today!
I'm almost 2 weeks into my sugar-free life. Today, being a Saturday, I did wake up anticipating some kind of 'weekend treat'. I'd already done my menu plans for the next week, and I really couldn't think of anything ex... Read more
The Twelfth Day of the First Month
There is a photo today.
An early start meant taking breakfast to work: breakfast bar, a few nuts, a ... Read more
The Eleventh Day of the First Month
No photos today.
I enjoyed some of those goji berries and cranberries, that my friend gave me, in my porridge this morning, and I used ground ginger instead of my usual mixed spice. It was a nice change.
Lunch was a tortilla wrap made ... Read more
Tenth Day of the First Month
Today's dinner was the second half of the nutroast & mixed root veg mash I made on Sunday. I added a large portion of steamed cabbage. Then I topped ... Read more

The Ninth Day of the First Month
I woke up with blocked sinuses and a vague headache - I didn't have to go to work today, so I've had what my Spark buddy called a 'retreat' day! They do me the power of good, and I know I'm very fortunate to be able to do this. Sometimes livin... Read more
