Chose a healthy meal out for lunch today :-)

Hi everyone,

I had lunch in a cafe today, and chose the 'Tabbouleh Salad with Goat's Cheese' - it was delicious and really beautifully presented, so I wanted to share a picture with you.

Wondering what you've had for lunch today - so please share if you want to.

Hi Caroline62,

Thanks! :-) Your lunch sounds lovely - M&S do some great food in their cafes - so I am sure you had a tasty sandwich there.

Your slow cooker stew with veg and cubed pork for this evening sounds really good - I hope you enjoy it. I must think about using the slow cooker - we bought one that is big enough for 2 people, and we've not used it yet! Keep meaning to, and then never get around to it. Slow cooking makes such great depth of flavour.

I'm going to have some chicken with roasted vegetables and new Jersey potatoes tonight, and I'm hoping to cook the vegetarian recipe for 'Sweet potato and chickpea Curry with Cashew nuts' in a couple of days or so.

Hope you're enjoying your week so far.

Hi zest

It looks lovely, I've never heard of tabbouleh salad but as I said it looks lovely especially with the goat's cheese. I was a baddy I'm afraid I had a toasted hot cross bun with tetleys green tea and lemon, it's my first hot cross bun in years and it was delicious with hot melted Flora

Hi Rosie,

Thank you :-) I've just looked up what 'Taboulleh is' and I've copied and pasted a bit from Wikipedia here:

"Tabbouleh (Arabic: تبولة‎‎ tabūlah; also tabouleh or tab(b)ouli) is a Levantine vegetarian dish (sometimes considered a salad) made of tomatoes, finely chopped parsley, mint, bulgur, and onion, and seasoned with olive oil, lemon juice, and salt. Some variations add garlic or lettuce, or use couscous instead of bulgur.[1][2]"

Wikipedia link here, if you want to read more about it:

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tabbo...

It is really tasty.

I think a toasted Hot Cross Bun is a lovely thing to have! It sounds like you really enjoyed it. :-) Your tea sounds lovely and refreshing too.

Hope you're having a great week.

Hi zest

Thank you for letting me know, it sounds tasty but I have to watch what I'm eating with having diverticulosis it wasn't too bad at the beginning but over the year's it's gotten worse. I'll find out more when I have my mri on Tuesday. I hope you're enjoying this lovely weather and enjoy your roast chicken dinner tonight

Hi Grace 111

Thank you for your lovely comment I'm a bit nervous but I might take one of my talking disc's, they tell you you can take music so I hope it's the same thing lol my eldest son say's it's that loud that you can't hear anything. I hope it's nice and sunny where you are and you enjoy the rest of your evening

thanks rosie i'v had an mri scan maybe it was different from yours it was to look at my gallbladder and they asked me if i wanted music but i said no. i had to breath in and out when they told me it was constant breathing and holding my breath. Im 66 and i i kept thinking i was going to loose my breath and wishing they would hurry up and tell me to breath again. i did manage thank goodness. it wasnt bad at all. its like lying inside a polo mint. wishing you all the best. yes take your music with you i could hear no problem. love grace xoxo 🌺

Hi Grace

That's the mri over it lasted nearly an hour I didn't need to hold my breath but I had to do a lot of clutching and pushing butt, I felt as if I was in labour lol. I'm so glad it's all over it's the waiting game now for the results, I hope you're having a nice evening

Hi Grace That's bad news about the nerve pain, I have fibro does the gp know what's causing it. I get gabapentin and it's great it takes the edge of the pain the hardest thing to accept is that there's no magic pill, I hope you feel better soon

Hi Rosie,

It's not been very sunny today, but it's still been a nice day - so can't complain. :-) Glad to hear you've enjoyed a walk and also your session on the bike - both great exercise.

I'm just enjoying an afternoon cup of coffee. :-)
