Day 4 - Live Below The Line

This has to be pretty quick because I'm doing the evening shift at the Diner. Yes, the diner where I work, where they serve juicy delicious burgers, where I can eat for free. Where I will be taking my plastic tub of rice and vegetables to heat up in the kitchen microwave for my dinner. Sigh.

Anyway, today I feel physically much better than yesterday. And I feel like I've hit my stride with this challenge. Shame it ends tomorrow. I will have to think hard on what my last Live Below The Line meal will be. And what to have for breakfast on Saturday morning.

I was very pleased with my tomato and rice soup. I just pushed a tin of tomatoes through a sieve, added a tin of water, a tablespoon of tomato puree and a pinch of dried basil. Cooked it for 5 minutes over a medium heat, then added a large handful of rice and simmered for 10/12 minutes until the rice was tender. The result was tasty and filling.

What I ate today:

Breakfast: Plain porridge, an orange, hot water with lemon. (anyone noticing a pattern here?)


Lunch: Tomato soup with rice, carrot sticks.


Dinner: Rice and vegetables. (no photo, sorry)

Off to work now.

(ps. I had a costume fitting this morning and was offered tea and a sandwich and many biscuits which I declined. Yay me.)

  1. The tomato soup looks delicious, and so simple, definitely an idea for me to pinch!

    You're doing brilliantly well.

    It's hard to turn down bisbuits though isn't it?
