Poem 206 of 230:  MY DIET

Chasing breads, nuts, bananas,
    Red sauce, apples, sultanas,
Crackers, conserves, cucumbers,
    Pickles, porridge, pottages -

Lemon barley,
    Cocoa, coffee,
Or cups of tea.

(C) David Franks 2003

Even better than lemon barley - especially
with the a Blue Mountains view! 14/11/19

A spread of vegan butter and cheese, ketchup,
iceberg lettuce, butter beans, and black olives

Beans (haricot) AND peas (petits pois)
on toast - with ketchup and a few spices

Couscous & vegetable 1-pot stew, with tofu
for protein - ready for the office microwave 

Avocado with a pool of maple syrup

For a change - beans with pasta instead of rice

A full vegan English! (With bread toasted 1st.) 

Butter beans in a mixed red & mustard sauce
on white toast with a dairy-free/vegan spread

Toast 'soldiers' for dipping in vegetable soup
as well as mustard, mint and tomato sauces

Sandwich lunch at Southport in Lancashire:
lettuce with pickled olives/gherkins/onions;
or a berry jam and peanut butter; 28/8/2017

Microwaved split-banana with cocoa powder 

Pears, bananas and sultanas in soya milk/cream

Fruit salad - bananas, sultans, and grapes

Beans on crackers with dairy-free spread

Porridge topped with sultanas or maple syrup

Modern pottage ready to microwave at work:
vegetable soup with tofu, corn, mint & sauce

New potatoes and cabbage in vegetable soup
with home-grown mint, mint sauce, and tofu 

Pak choi with potatoes and tofu in veg soup
later mopped-up with a slice of white bread

Vegetable stew/pottage with tofu for protein

Stew: radish, peas, carrots, cucumber, unions

Basmati rice via absorption method

Baked beans and rice plus pak choi

Similar to a vegetable paella, my dish of rice,
veg soup, mushrooms, unions, corn and tofu

Noodles with tofu, soya sauce and vegetables

Fusilli, baked beans, asparagus & mushrooms

Canned baked beans for protein -
reusing a coffee lid for freshness

My tea and coffee corner

My kitchen cupboard

My kitchen fridge
