What are you eating today?

Just made a Tortilla, eat it later when cold, with salad, and a glass or two of "Vina Pomal"(sadly 2005), my favourite Rioja.

My diet today has been nothing short of disgraceful.

Got up late, had a cup of tea and a bar of Toblerone for 'breakfast'.

Tea and a Scotch Egg with mayonnaise and capers for lunch.

Tea and a Tunnocks biscuit or two (who's counting?) at tea time (mid-afternoon).

Dinner will be fresh asparagus, fillet steak and peas, and a decent South African Shiraz.

Breakfast: dry, plain bagel.

Lunch/Dinner: a pasta concoction the wife came up with. Very good actually. Had green peas in it as well. Don't know the details of the rest, though, as I don't cook. Actually, if left to my own devices I'd burn water.

Supper: Beer.

Okay gingernut, I'm game. Can you transcribe for us Americans what in the name of god a "chip barm" is?

Ditto a "butty". Is a butty something you dunk in your tea then?

Real Ale? Is there a Fake Ale? Or a Fraudulent Ale?

PS: Do NOT ask anyone in Miami, Florida what they're eating for lunch these days. Might not go down too well.

After completing this post, I shall be heating up a home-made curry made on Tuesday. It's actually in a bowl that I'd prepared yesterday with basmati rice (all ready for the microwave) but that I didn't consume on Wednesday because I'd drunk too much Scotch to want to eat...

So that's what I shall be eating later today, accompanied by a bowl of home-made chutney made earlier this afternoon from fresh ingredients (finely chopped red onion, tomato, thai green chilli; marinated with a squeeze of lime, sugar and salt & pepper...

Post completed, logging out, going to eat...

Breakfast:-
Tumbler full of freshly squeezed pineapple and orange juice.

Porridge (syrup flavour) sprinkled with ground seed mixture of flax (linseed), sunflower, pumpkin and sesame. (Goats milk to make porridge) - all washed down with a nice green tea afterwards.

After gym workout, one banana.

Late lunch:-
Prawn cocktail, mixed salad, mushroom and goats cheese fritata (all from M & S, the latter highly recommended!). Strawberries and blueberries with probiotic yoghurt. Black decaff cofee.

Throughout the day snacking on almond, brazil nuts, raisins, grapes.

Not planning on much for dinner.

Eliminated all bread 2 months ago and feel miles better for doing so!

Rgbrock - a butty is basically a sandwich, but to qualify it has to meet the following conditions

It has to contain nothing which could be considered "healthy eating". Thus chip (translation "french fries"), bacon, fried egg, can all qualify.

The bread has to be white, preferably sliced - wholemeal, rye or any fancy French or Italian breads will not do.

Application of HP brown sauce is not quite obligatory, but advisable.

Chip butty with brown sauce - yum

btw

Breakfast: dry, plain bagel.
You must really hate yourself - why dont you go the whole hog and eat blotting paper - it might be more tasty?

Tanker:

Thanks for the clarification on a "butty".

As for eating a plain ol' bagel and comparisons to blotting paper.
A plain ol' bagel contains lots of carbohydrates. Thus, lots of energy.
As opposed to the high fat content displayed in some of the pictures here, or as described herein. A high fat content breakfast contains no energy whatsoever. But goes a long way in successfully clogging ones arteries.

I much prefer carbs over fat. But, hey, that's me. Different strokes for different folks.

Tview, you can't be serious!
OK, bacon, but the second horrible thing!?!

As for me - having had late Chinese (kinda) dinner yesterday, crispy-sweet pork sticks (? not big ones, not slices), rice and eggplant in hot garlic sauce - and having worked home without moving around much (papers and typing), I took it easy today. Coffee (+goatmilk+a little honey) for breakfast, pasta with sour cream and sweet pepper/tomato sauce for lunch and that's it. Water for supper. From the tap of course, gets there from my own well.

rg I think tableviews picture speaks a thousand words.

You're forgiven for not recognising the term, they have difficulty in Cornwall recognising such terms as well.

If your ever over this end, may I recommend The Festival Way chippy, Runcorn for said balm, and The Victory Hall, Mobberley for a decent pint of Real (as in hand pulled out of a barrel) ale.

Anything else is, I am afraid, fraudulent

Right, that's the last time I send you a picture of my dinner!

Seriously, I agree, that is gross, but explains many of the sights that can be seen in the UK these days.

What's the point of white bread? Tastes like nothing, has no nutritive value, nothing whatever going for it. A beer is better for you, and I think as a matter of taste, there's absolutely no contest.

A bagel isn't actually that terrific. It's refined flour, yeast, and water, maybe with some egg and some seeds. Simple carbs alone, a bagel will wipe out a diabetic, and on its own without some protein (like a bit of lox, some cream cheese, peanut butter), your blood sugar (and mood) will be all over the shop. I think we've seen a bit of that in these august pages.

Of everything on the page, Arthur R has the only thing that's a remotely balanced meal except Mrs. rgb's pasta concoction. Tortilla with salad and a glass of wine has protein (eggs), a moderate amount of fat (eggs & olive oil), starchy (potatoes) and fibrous (onion & salad) carbohydrates, and all those good things one finds in a Rioja.

No wonder you lot are so cranky if this is what you keep putting in the tank.

gingernut:

Yes, tableview's pictures speak a thousand words indeed.
And especially the 2nd picture.

Let me begin that list of a thousand words and perhaps we can all add to it as time goes by.

1. Fat-laden
2. Unhealthy
3. Artery-clogging
4. Makes one prone to couch-potato-ism (okay, more than 1 word)
5. Greasy

Small bowl cereal for breakfast, 2% fat milk, orange juice. Numerous mugs of tea during day, no sugar, 2% milk. One ham and tomato roll for lunch. 6 radishes, 5 kalamata olives, and a pickled gherkin, all as an hors d'oeuvre, followed by one grilled kipper with a white bread roll, a small piece of cheese and a peach, with more tea, for dinner.
