A short 20 minute “recovery swim” at 8am. A great start to a beautiful day.
Bircher muesli with yogurt and banana
Poached eggs on toast with avocado, tomato and steamed spinach
Rory brought over some amazing multigrain bread. I aspire to bake bread this well. I couldn’t wait to sink my teeth into those gluten chains.
Two turns around Clissold Park on this perfect sunny Saturday with Tim and Rory. Clissold Park is glorious on a sunny day. Lots of frisbees and happy puppies.
It’s still scarf and gloves weather in London, but the sunshine has me looking forward to summer and the picnic season! Aah, happy memories.
Yes, I am very grateful to live so close to such a lovely park. What London lacks in infrastructure and efficiency it makes up for in pretty green parks and squares.
Not to be confused with orange wedgies…
Spaghetti and tofu “neatballs” served with salad and broccoli

Bircher muesli with banans (look, mom – no yogurt!)
Took 3 turns around Clissold Park (~7km), just me and the iPod. The podcasts: Sound Opinions and NPR Fresh Air.
Grilled tofu sandwich with a massive salad
The tofu: thin slices of tofu, sprinkled on both sides with salt, pepper and mixed Italian herbs, then grilled in the oven for a few minutes on both sides. I totally made this up, and I would do it again… quick and tasty.
The sandwich: grilled tofu, grilled peppers and onions, avocado, tomato, lettuce, on whole wheat no knead bread.
Dal with Lime and Chili Cabbage Slaw and Raita
It was a Madhur kind of meal.
The dal: Moong Dal from The Essential Madhur Jaffrey
The slaw: Lime and Chili Cabbage Slaw with shredded carrots and thinly sliced red pepper
The raita: Cucumber raita from The Essential Madhur Jaffrey
