I’ve eaten a lot of hummus so far: Falafel wrap with salad and hummus for lunch yesterday from a sandwich joint round here and today a home-made roll of hummus and salad. Last night was a vegetable stir-fry with rice noodles and a salad. I’ve been eating lots of fruit but probably not as much as I usually do – I think this might be that the food and portions I’m eating now are much bulkier than my normal diet.
Things that annoy me: loads of products that you’d expect to be animal-fat free aren’t. Here I’m thinking of margarine. Yesterday in Sainsbury’s I went through all the margarine tubs and they all had whey derived from cow’s milk. Dirty fuckers.
My fellow diet-alterer, Maria, who’s foresaken booze for a month is, I suspect, having a much worse time. Her plan is not going out after work for a month. I think the bit she hasn’t accounted for is the solo home drinking she used to enjoy.
