B: Scrambled egg and smokey bacon
L: chicken drumsticks with stir fried cabbage. Cashew Nuts
D: Bolognese with cauliflower. Mug of Cocoa
I always make my cocoa with lactofree cream to ensure I have enough fats but I vary the flavours depending on how I'm feeling.
Rum: add a few drops of rum essence or as a real treat use real rum but this will contain carbs
Peppermint: add a few drops of peppermint essence
Cinnamon: add 1/2-1tsp of cinnamon powder - this is real Christmassy
I also have flavoured tea. I use Redbush tea leaves and always make tea in the teapot. To my tea caddy I occasionally add one or all of the following:
bayleaves broken up
I then use the tea mixture as I usually would to make a pot of tea. The result is a lovely spiced Indian tea. You can still add milk if you want to, I do! Of course you could just add a few drops of rum essence to your mug of tea for an alternative flavour!
In the summer I have added mint leaves or even lavender to my tea mixture for a more refreshing taste.
Happy tea drinking everyone!
