Ok, I am now on day two of Lent and am doing ok even when I got home from work yesterday and forgot and raided the fridge, I did stop myself in time. Today I stocked up on rice cakes as I did miss having a snack, normally a sandwich, to eat when I got home from work yesterday. I also got a few others bits.
I am giving up wheat as a staple not wheat for Lent, so those are the rules that I have for myself in my head after taking a look in the cupboards.
I cannot eat: bread, noodles, cake, pasta, pizza but of course if I can make these things without wheat flour then I can.
I can eat: stock cubes, soy sauce, hot chocolate, flavoured potato crisps.
I was going to get some peanut butter and honey to go on my rice cakes but couldn’t find a UK blend of honey among the blended honey from almost everywhere else in the world so I go an interesting looking apple and pear pure fruit spread which is not, although a little sweet if you spoon it on in the fashion that I do with almost everything.
I have started posting what I am eating in my facebook page and twitter feed (appears on the right hand side also)
i found it really annoying that I couldnt find a uk honey in the supermarket as well. English wildflowers shortage?
we are really lucky where I live. depsite it only being a small town, we have a wonderful independant health food shop, which stocks all sorts, including local Welsh honey ;0)
