Lunchbox Scoffing

In a further attempt to improve my eating habits, I undertook to create one of the recipes from The Lunchbox Diet today, the idea being that you "graze" from the box throughout the day, which supposedly keeps your cravings for unhealthy snacks under control.

Only problem, when I had this box of absolutely delish salad (mixed leaves, beetroot, roast butternut squash, mushrooms, peas, Quorn ham and a cider vinegar and basil dressing) in front of me, I was going back every 5 minutes to eat it and it lasted no time. And I'm still hungry!!!

I think it will take a lot of work to wean my body off the naughty snacks!!

Meanwhile, despite the wet, miserable weather, a "flock" (?) of dragonflies has landed...

They will get their antennae later!!

Had to chuckle about the salad.

Your latest creations are just so cute - lovely.
