A day of travelling, healing, traffic jamming and not a lot of eating!

8.30am – Breakfast:

Recently, when healing, my breakfast has consisted of a large pack of Maltesers! Now, it's this. About 500 times more satisfying and about a thousand times less rubbish!

Slightly sour-tasting. Nowhere near as good as the best 100% natural coconut waters on the market.

I was out all day travelling to see a patient and when I am healing, I have to do so on a (close to) empty stomach. Otherwise digestion gets in the way and the healing energies don’t flow like they should. For several months now, I have been eating (copious amounts of) chocolate – often in the form of Maltesers or Munchies or Aero Bubble packs. Chocolate in these forms do not interfere with the flow of healing energies at all. But it has contributed rather a lot to my ridiculous size in recent months.

So I knew I had to ditch the choccies. I tried the fruit’n’nut’n’yog combo which was an absolute favourite of mine back when I was eating consciously in Jan/Feb. And, happily, it worked a treat! It is sufficiently light to not stimulate disruptive and uncomfortable digestion (like most other food would.) It is nutritious. It is home-made. And it tastes a lot more heavenly than 78 Maltesers do!

As you can see, I ate rather sparingly today. I usually end up (when I see this, particular patient) at a fine Thai place and eating superhuman amounts while reading. (Especially since, by then, I am properly famished.) But I popped into Pret a Manger instead. Partly because their portions are reasonable (ie not gargantuan) and partly because I wasn’t really hungry enough for a stomach-distending feast like I normally have.

I ate in the car (parked! Not driving!) without any distractions. Can’t say I enjoyed the croissant much. But the Halloumi Wrap was very decent. Several hours (and one major traffic jam on the M40 later and I’m Neutral going on slightly hungry.

Which means I will have a decent breakfast quite early tomorrow. I’m intrigued to try the oh-so-simple Vegan Caramel recipe that I found on here:

I believe it will go very well with my fruit’n’nut’n’yog combo.
