Melted

26/03/2009

 

I hate running late, absolutely loathe being rushed. And this morning? Exactly that. Fortunately I had a break between classes so I came home and got a shower in, as well as having the time to savour a delicious macchiato.

This may be my new favourite coffee shot…

Anyway, after my English Language/Composition and Francais 4, I lunched.

In attempt to counter the high-strung morning, I had a melty sandwich,

And devoured it, despite trying to feel mellow and smelty. Smelty? Not exactly the word I was looking for, but I’ll take it. A layer of basil tomato sauce, a sliced Quorn filet, yellow bell pepper, pickle and mild Emmental.

To keep it company in the belly I paired it with a salad of sorts – cucumber, tomato, parsley, gala apple, yellow pepper and a few dried cranberries.

I have a new beverage obsession. When I lived in the States it was Pom Tea, (Peach flavour, holla!), and here, its this lightly flavoured carbonated water.

It has 9 plant extracts – ready? Ok, here we go –

1. Acai
2. Hibiscus
3. Birch Leaves
4. Mulberry Leaves
5. Elderberry Flowers
6. Coriander
7. Dandelion
8. Calendula
9. Juniper

 

 

The flavours aren’t over-powering, they’re just present enough to gently touch your tastebuds. Rafraichissant!

After a big of errand running, I hit the yoga mat. It was a pretty good class, but the teacher talked a bit too much of ‘celebrating the differences of bones in your body, in your hands and feet’ and to ‘celebrate the fact that you’re able to do this pose, you’re here, you’re tangible’. I don’t mind centering banter like this, but it was a bit much for me. It was an hour class, and I was starving when I was done.

I came upstairs and ANNIHILATED a beautifully tender mango.

Yeah. I bought two. They’ll probably be gone tomorrow. Hopefully I won’t be as famished when I eat it, so I’ll have more time to take some better photos.

Have a nice day, bloggies!
