I’m feeling optimistic about this challenge. I have a lot of food in my fridge, freezer and cupboards and a £50 budget to eat raw for the week.
This is how it goes:
I broke fast with two gala apples and 1.2lt of water.
And then I had my second breakfast after some exercise (Jillian Michelle’s 30 day shred and a 3.1 mile threshold run).
- 1 anemic pineapple – surprisingly juicy/1 honey dew melon/2 bananas
Followed by 5 medium sized carrots. All washed down with 600ml of water
4 hours later en route to a kid’s party in East Croydon I grabbed some food to go:
- 3 bananas and 3 dates.
I wished I’d grabbed more. It would be hours before I could eat again.
But on the way back to the station I found some emergency-compromise food
And my first spend against budget:£3.45
And again I wished I’d grabbed more. The vagaries of the tube network force me onto a bus at Victoria and a snail-paced journey through highly trafficked central London. It’s 1.5 hours later when I eventually get home and I can eat again.
I’m under-carbed. I trek to Tesco.
A £11.35 spend and one salad later. I’m ready for my late night feast followed by bed.
