Tuesday 21 August - Hayle, Cornwall

Some weird jelly fish washed up on the surf's edge

Breakfast was - you got it - 1/8 cheese loaf (plus coffee, a nectarine & 2 clementines).

Long walk on beach - about 1½ hours. Finally starting to feel a bit better from the car crash - leg, wrist etc easing off a bit

Lunch was a salad of ½ bag spinach, 3 mushrooms, ½ red onion, 1 medium avocado, 100g prawns and dressing made of 1 tablespoon oil, 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar, Colman's mustard, salt & pepper.

Then set about snacking on holiday rubbish - 3 chocolate toffees, 2 squares Cadbury chocolate, small Time Out bar, 1 bag M&S Sweet potato crisps, 1 M&S teacake, 1 chocolate cream caramel wafer thingy - all stuff I don't normally keep around! Bleugh - not good.

Went for another walk on the beach in the afternoon. Gotta work off some of that lardy junk food.

For dinner I made a

Bean Salad
Make a simple dressing of
1 tablespoon oil,
juice of 1 lemon,
2 garlic cloves,
1 teaspoon sugar,
1 teaspoon mustard

Combine and pour over
1 small green pepper
100g cooked fine beans
½ can kidney beans
175g cannellini beans
½ red onion, sliced fine.

Toss well and leave to stand for 30 minutes or more so flavours can develop. Makes 2 servings.

I had one serving on ½ head romaine,with some slow roasted cherry tomatoes and a hard boiled egg.
