Pottage Day 4

After having five large Fuji apples for lunch, I am finally finishing up the cabbage pottage I made before Easter.  Now is when it tastes the best as it’s had a few days for the flavors to really develop.  Maybe next time I’ll can a large batch in quart sized mason jars.


Mangos for lunch


Mangos are a sweet fruit with a lot of substance.  Today I ate three of them for lunch.  A lunch consisting of three mangos has 600 calories, 3.9 grams of fat, 15 grams of fiber, 8.4 grams of protein, and, of course, zero cholesterol.  Percent daily values are 48% potassium, 216% vitamin A, 609% vitamin C, 9% calcium, 6% iron, 60% vitamin B-6, and 18% magnesium.  Got energy?

Judgment error on Easter


Easter eating started well. I ate half of these bananas for breakfast on my way to church and the other half during a coffee break at church.  

For Easter supper I made rotini with tomato sauce and wilted spinach with vegan garlic Parma topping; a tossed salad made with romaine, tomatoes, avocado, and cucumber; and a small bowl of leftover cabbage soup from the day before (sorry, forgot to take pics before we ate everything). Since the weather was perfect we even took the dog for a walk to the lake after supper. So far so good – healthy and happy. 

Then came my judgment error.  In an attempt to be festive, I ate an entire  vegan chocolate egg (made with rice milk chocolate).  Did I mention I ate the entire thing?  I knew it was more fat than I am used to eating, but I didn’t anticipate how heavy and thick it would feel in my stomach and digestive tract.  I also forgot about how much caffeine there is in chocolate!  I don’t typically consume anything that  contains any caffeine whatsoever so I had quite a strong reaction to an entire chocolate egg’s worth.  I literally had a hangover from indulging in this egg.  Oh well, live and learn. Next holiday I will undoubtedly be making my own ultra-lowfat high-carb caffeine-free dessert.

Saturday brunch.  

I got up later than usual today because I had no morning plans and I was very snug.  By the time I started to get a meal together it was almost lunchtime so I decided to have brunch.  I looked around my fruit room to see what was ripe and decided to have 3 grapefruits, 1 orange, 2 kiwis, and 2 pears.


  I was very pleased with my selections.
