So, being an almost vegetarian trying out a ration book life style, what would a typical day for me look like? Last week, it could be something like this:
Breakfast: Two slices of crisp tunnbröd, scraped with hummus with sliced cucmuber. A pot of lapsang.
After that, I take the bike to work, about 5-6 miles, and work for a few hours.
Mid-morning snack: A cup of coffee with a little milk, two more slices of bread, this time scraped with apple sauce.
Then more work, until lunch.
Lunch: porridge made from oats and dried apple, spiced up with a little cinnamon and cardamom, with a little apple sauce and milk.
About 30 min walk to stretch my legs.
Work, work, work, only interrupted by some coffee with a little milk and some snacking on fresh fruit.
Take the bike home, 5-6 miles.
Dinner: The mushroom & cabbage stew (recipe yesterday) with a large helping of plain boiled potatoes and lots of fresh salad.
Later, there's usually more coffee or tea and a crisp roll. I usually get mega-cravings right before bed so I have some (sometimes a lot) of fresh fruit.
