It’s Wednesday lunchtime, halfway through our live below the line challenge. I thought I’d feel really hungry, but rather than feeling hungry I’ve just been really lacking in energy and concentration. I’ve been clumsier than I usually am too!
Yesterday was the worst day for me so far, I was so tired, I fell asleep at 8 o’clock not even halfway into the film we were watching! Today I feel a bit brighter, must be all the sleep I got!
Generally I spend most of my time thinking about food and recipe ideas, this week I’ve tried no to think about it too much, it’s proving difficult!
I think we’ve done pretty well so far, the meals aren’t the most exciting but we’ve all tried to pimp them up with the little we have. For me, cold fried rice for lunch yesterday had to be the worst meal so far this week, the best was last night’s spaghetti with tinned tomatoes and chickpeas, we’d even foraged for some wild garlic to add some extra flavour.
It really has put things into perspective. I’m so lucky I don’t have to eat like this everyday. Though these five days are definitely worth it to raise awareness and money for Action Against Hunger.
Off to a gig tonight, will see how I hold up on tap water all night, hope I don’t fall asleep!
