Day 3

It started to hit home about having nothing hot or cooked with the kids. Its hard to try and reason with them about our new food choices - so I know we need ot get our food a bit more attractive for them.

I also passed a few tests I guess. I went shopping and walked past the bakery.. and didn’t buy anything. There was also a sausage sizzle – and the smell almost sent me mad! ( but I bravely walked straight on past....)

Mid afternoon I was feeling really munchifous – Adrian had opened some salted peanuts – who knows where they had come from – and I had eaten two handful before I could extract myself away. However, we all pulled through the day with flying colours. Headaches are gone and feeling pretty good.

Breaky was a fruit shake, lunch was fruit pieces and vege sticks with the left over brazil nut pate and some rice cakes. Afternoon tea was a platter of fruit and vege sticks and cubes of chocolate. ( see pici)

Dinner was a chill free Pad Thai – which was outstandingly yummy.
