The bathroom scales
Got to get back on track with my health goals. I’m still too scared to get on the scales since last Friday when I had lost 3.6 kilos towards my overall goal of 8. Within a day or so I will be brave enough. Perhaps.
After the tsunami of Christmas treats, pies, rocky road, cake and slice, I can’t wait to get back to good, fresh, Meyles-garden stuff.
Here’s an example:
Here we have my fabulous zucchini cakes made with a couple of zucchinis, spring onion, cottage cheese, herbs and cumin. These are very tasty and go beautifully with the tsatziki (a couple of cucumbers blitzed with greek yoghurt, S&P, cumin. All served with fresh garden salad and salmon, this made a beautifully satisfying and fresh lunch which gives energy and doesn’t make me feel tired afterwards.
Yesterday we picked yet another dozen cucumbers. After giving away a few dozen of these babies, I decided to have a crack at pickling some. We love the little gherkins you get in a jar from the supermarket. So let’s hope they turn out something like that. These have to wait a week before the pickling process does its work before we can taste them.
Finished off with peppermint tea – also grown in our garden. This can be made using fresh or dried peppermint. It is the best peppermint tea I’ve ever had – 100 times better than any of that shop-bought rubbish.
Eat well, live long!
