blueberries, linseed, blue bowl, blueberry, yoghurt, breakfast
I’m back on the Lenten Fast with a vengeance. No more sneaky French fries dipped in mayonnaise for me. My biggest food indulgence has always been allowing myself to order anything I want on the menu when I eat out. With the consequent results on my tummy & thighs. I met lovely Lola yesterday for lunch(so pregnant that I’m surprised her waters didn’t break in Café Luxemburg), and instigated the new regime: instead of the omelette frites with cheese & mushrooms that I really wanted, I ordered a small bowl of butternut squash soup and drank water.

I did eat three small pieces of bread & butter with it but that’s got to be better than a big fat American sandwich or the plate of French fries I would normally have ordered.

And above is today’s lunch: a bowl of organic no-fat yogurt (since I read Michael Pollan I’m steering clear of BGH and other nasties when I can), blueberries and my own mix of organic linseed, porridge oats, sunflower & pumpkin seeds. (According to this piece in the NY Times, pumpkin seeds are one of the top ten superfoods we should be adding to our diets.)

Mmmmm I love butter nut squash! I am trying to have a health kick… theres a vending machine outside my flat and even though I want some maltesers LOADS I’m not going to get them!

Really, this is not down to will power… it’s just because I have no change. 🙂 x


Good for you man. I am a horrible eater. I’ve been trying to eat healthier, however those greasy fries and burgers do get the best of me! I hope you’ll let us know how it goes!

i dont think i could give up french fries dipped in mayo for ANYTHING!
and thank you for your lovely comment on my blog 🙂


Wow loks super healthy. I’m so bad when it comes to eating fruit and stuff and I’ve never liked blueberries either…but they are so good for you!


I am so addicted to pumpkin seeds, I keep a huge tub in the garage (random) and am constantly picking from it.


O well done! And blueberries are my ultimate favourite thing to sprinkle on absolutely anything. I’m inspired to put down my neenish tart 😉


That looks really healthy!

I saw an article recently with people who ate whatever and howmuch they wanted for breakfast and lunch but only had the tiniest dinner – and they all looked great.

So I’ve started doing the same over the last few days – I still snack (naughty me) till mid-afternoon but only have a small salad at dinner. And I’ve lost a couple of pounds already – I feel lighter and am definitely slimmer in the mornings…. maybe something to try!?


I wouldn’t have been able to resist the lure of the french fries, so I fully commend your will power, haha!
Your lunch looks tasty though!
