Lent week 2

Second week into lent, and here is how it went. I thought the weekend was going to be a struggle as I knew I was with my family and we weren't going to be eating meals in the normal way. We had family round on Saturday and was more of a buffet, which generally have less  fruit and vegetables than I would normally eat in a meal. Also, on Sunday we went to afternoon tea, which had zilch fruit and veg yet filled me to brimming. I compensated by eating lots of fruit for breakfast and lots of veggies for dinner with little else.




Here is how I got on....

I have been stocking up on easy to eat fruit and veg, such as dried fruit and blueberries, which allows me to just grab a handful when I am feeling peckish and topping up how much fruit and veg I actually ate.
