Lost my #desklunch #salad mojo this week. Cabbage, #avocado, cherry tomatoes, #chickpeas and #feta, with cinnamon, cumin, lemon juice and #evoo, perfectly tasty and balanced enough, but no pizzazz. Such is life!

The problems with being distracted: you grab the wrong plate, and your lunch ends up looking uninspiring. First-world problems indeed. Pre shredded cabbage, #chickpeas, mixed cherry tomatoes, peas, #avocadorings and #feta, lemon juice and #evoo.

Despite all appearances to the contrary, this is not curry! Roasted carrot and orange pepper soup (roasted with cumin, and black and regular garlic), with fresh mint (maybe shouldn't have blitzed the mint the night before), with a handful each of spinach and #chickpeas added after reheating, and topped with crispy halloumi. Delish if not exactly photogenic!

The dressing from my #desklunch #salad doesn't look so great against this plate! Need to get my act together to avoid another #jacketpotato tomorrow (although I love them!). Had a handful of blackberries earlier for my #5aday. Pre-shredded cabbage, #lentils, and #perfectavocado, lemon juice, cumin, #evoo.

Too cold for #salad! The second portion of roast cauliflower and #chickpeas soup, with a roast carrot I'd forgotten about and a handful each of spinach and petit pois (not, as my Junior 1 French teacher Mdm Cheded would say, "your big fat English peas"). Spritz of lime juice and a good slug of #evoo

Getting too cold for a daily #desklunch #salad. Blended the last of the roast cauliflower and a can of #chickpeas with some broth, then when I reheated at work, chucked in two handfuls of spinach and some orange cherry tomatoes. Got the proportions a bit off, was VERY chick pea-y, but good.

Green eggs no ham for #sundaybrunch: whisked with turmeric, black pepper, coriander and shredded spinach, then scrambled until I'm refused entry to any sort of eating establishment (yes, rubbery, I CANNOT deal with liquidy eggs). Served atop a hot cross bun because it was the only baked good in the freezer, with #evoo-slicked and chili-flaked #avocado, and tea, glorious tea.

Saw a @waitrose post for cauliflower #tabbouleh yesterday, and was inspired, but lazy. I still had roast cauliflower, so I roughly chopped the florets, mixed in a tomato, some borlotti beans and coriander, and served on spinach with a side of #avocado, lots of lime juice and #evoo. Not tabbouleh but not bad. At all.

Turkey broth. Spinach. Carrot ribbons. Lentils. I love the idea of #lentils being an almost complete food, so rich in so many nutrients. I also love it with the dinner I have in my mind comes together almost exactly as good as, if not better than I imagined.

Was going to head to the beach for one last 2017 tan, but the bus queues were so long I figured the sand would be packed. Hung out with old people in a park instead. (Was shocked to realise I haven't actually read #murderontheorientexpress, let alone seen the new movie. Huge fan of the #albertfinney version, despite my belief There Is Only One Poirot And His Name Is #davidsuchet!)

The forecast for the last working day of the year was 17-23Β° C. Good job I'd planned a #fridgecleanout #desklunch #salad! Spinach, #kale, #tenderstem broccoli, #chickpeas, and a handful of shaved, raw #brusselssprouts, with a few last blobs of tomino cheese, with some lemon and #evoo.

Yesterday was a bit of a write-off. Well, I ate a #kale and butter bean #salad for dinner, but the only other things I managed were four pieces of #kfc. Thought something clean and nourishing was necessary. Luckily I made chicken stock on Sunday with #rotisseriechicken #leftovers, reheated them at work with some peas, broad beans and #edamame, poured it over some (more) kale, and lobbed half an #avocado (thanks, @hodman!) on top. Restorative. And preparatory, I guess, for the weekend!
