It’s been a busy week but I’m trying to get back into the swing of things with my daily food and exercise posts. The swirl of activity has me rejuvenated. Last weekend, we had friends over for our first in a series of mini housewarming parties at our new place on the farm. It was a great weekend, involving lots of food and very little to write anything about it.
Our last guest left on Monday, and I returned to London with him for a couple days of work where my diet was totally dependent on my gracious hosts. Luckily, I work with people who appreciate good food as much as I do so it wasn’t a problem, thought I WAS shy about taking pictures.
On the whole fitness side of things (after all, this blog is supposed to be about food AND fitness, though the latter usually takes authority), I’ve been doing a lot of walking lately, particularly the last two days in London. It’s left me a bit stiff and sore so on Wednesday I took a day off from my daily walking routine, which was just as well because it was one of those cold rainy days in England that are perfect for hiding indoors in sweatpants.

Stretches, Push-Ups and Sit-Ups
Feeling really stiff for some reason. Probably due to lots of walking in London the two days prior. Spent a good 15 minutes just stretching, focussing on my legs and lower back. Then some sit-ups and push-ups as “planned”.
Apple-filled Buckwheat Crepes with Soy Yogurt “Cheese”
Smoked Tofu Sandwich with Salad
The sandwich was awesomely delicious: hummus, tomato, cucumber, lettuce and smoked tofu. The salad, by contrast, was pretty basic: leaves, tomato, onion, carrot, balsamic vinaigrette and toasted sunflower seeds.
Smoked tofu mini-sandwich and an orange
Another halve sandwich like the one pictured above. No picture. Tsk tsk.
Pizza with roasted veggies and tomato salad
Grilled zucchini and eggplant have made for a decent cheese substitute in the past, so tonight I tried grilled marrow. It was decent, but the crust was only average. I think it needed to rise longer.
