    I haven't had anything. I had chocolate cake for breakfast and lunch and my dinner is a big mac :D

    Pineapple juice, a banana, dried apricot pieces, dinner veg will consist of corgettes and peppers :yum:
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Um... a satsuma and a yellow plum with breakfast, snacked on some raisins, thick fresh carrot and coriander soup for lunch and spinach with my dinner. Yes then :)

    I tend to come in between 3 and 5 portions a day, i think. It helps that we get a hippy box - it kind of forces us to use a lot of veg!

    Two plums and an innocent smoothie. I normally do better (although mainly with fruit, I'm not so great with vegetables).

    Edit: Ooo, completely forgot, I had a ready to eat pack of mango at lunchtime too :D

  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru

    More tomatoes
    Onion
    Lettuce
    And more cranberry juice
    :yum:

    Nah none hehe. I hardly ever eat fruit and veg even though I love it.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Had sweet potato, onions and leeks in my dinner, and some orange juice as well. Haven't had orange juice for aaages, it's so yummy. So yes, I have had my 5 a day today.

    By the way, would anybody count baked beans as veg? I was wondering because other pulses like chickpeas and butterbeans do count.

    2 x plums
    1 x satsuma
    1 x pepper
    beans
    carrots
    cucumber
    beetroot
    tomatos

    Think I've managed them today :)

    Apricots, strawberries, grapes, a banana and cranberry juice for breakfast.

    Banana with lunch.

    Sweetcorn for dinner.

    I tend to have as many as possible with breakfast, usually 5 so any in addition to that is a bonus.

    I've had today:
    Raisins
    Grapes
    Orange
    Banans
    Cranberry juice
    Peas

    But my god I have a sweet tooth today and I have been eating lots of chocolate. I always panic on days like this, it was a fairly piggish day yest too. So I will be strict for the next couple of days.

    Why does everyone sound 4 years old when they say "I've had some apple juice and a bananana".

    So far I've had 2 pints of lemon squash (which was 19p a litre probably doesn't count :p) but I shall cook later and have some apple juice and maybe make my 5!
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    i don't think lemon squash counts - and even if it did having 2 glasses would only count as one portion of your 5.

    i've had 3 today.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    I've had...um....

    Lemon meringue pie? >.<
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
