Havin it Largs 

It’s been a weekend full of the bad (good) stuff… Loads of pints, seeing friends and eating shite. Still haven’t wavered though, I remain meat free! 

This despite the temptations of Kurdish Fast Food, I visited on Saturday and got a falafel which, while delicious, wasn’t quite as amazing as their mashi kebab. It was less than half the price though, a steal at ¬£3! 

Just falafs

Today I continued my love of fried broccoli by making broccoli and mushrooms on toast with caraway seeds and fried egg for lunch. Awesome, cheap and healthy (ish). The same couldn’t be said for the rest of today’s eating, we went to Largs and it’s the law that you have to indulge in an ice cream from Nardini’s and an overpriced fish supper. Had a great day out, I love Largs and the kids had a great time trying to sink the Waverley and getting attacked by seagulls. 

Veg! On toast! With egg.

I stocked up on veggie goodness yesterday in Sainsburys, so no takeaways allowed next week. I have to admit they’re not as enticing without all the meat, in fact the food van nearby doesn’t have any veg options – the closest thing I could find was tuna salad. Anybody know where you can actually buy seitan? I came away with tofu and pulses and not much else, I thought they’d have a previously ignored bit full of veggie stuff, but no joy, just hunners of gluten free abominations. 

A little death

Some people say that you shouldn’t eat anything you couldn’t kill yourself. I dont necessarily subscribe to that view, but it’s part of my justification for eating fish (if I need any). I’ve caught a fish, killed it and ate it. It was about 28 years ago and it was a titchy wee trout, but still. 

If you extend this logic to its natural conclusion, this means I can also eat spiders, flies, midges and the occasional wasp. Let’s see how fed up I get with tofu before we go down that route though. 

I think my digestive system is starting to realise something is going on and it’s not happy. A hearty bowl of muesli for breakfast today will hopefully counteract the effects of my gut downing its tools. Tonight’s dinner is another M&S fishfest but I’m planning to do some proper cooking tomorrow…watch this space !
