You allergic to BOREDOM?
I’ve finished reading book number 5 of my 2014 goal.
Little excited about what to choose next.
So yesterday, there I am reading about personality and
having a little think about mine. Whilst I confirm what
I already know – I’m an extrovert, and I need continuous stimulation….
It probably isn’t helping that I’m
on a four and a half hour train journey from Manchester.
I’m not the best traveller so trying to be productive
Is better in theory than reality as I have to have little breaks
or I feel ill.
One thing though (not sure if you’ve tried it)
I’m actually better going backwards?!?!
Also, I’m so glad I was organised and took plenty of water and made some
Of my low carb, high protein ‘No Whey! Wraps’ to eat because
Being bored with a choccy trolley trying to seduce you would
Have been hard.
And imagine the face I would have had if I asked if there was
An organic, 100% cocoa protein bar on offer!
Lol – one day hey.
We could get a TARAnsformation Trolley!
Ha, I’d love that.
Imagine…lunging up the aisle
” Hot cocoa, Protein Bars, Apple & Peanut Nacho’s”
^^^ over 60 Recipes in my eBook BTW ^^^
That would be awesome….coming on Dragons Den with me??
Ha ha haaaaa.
Anyway, as I continued to ‘Train Think’ I realised
You haven’t had a recipe off me this week!
So, I have a lovely soup for you.
Great for lunch – not to heavy.
Great for dinner – hot & comforting.
Great for prepping – make a big batch and portion for a few days
Great for your pocket too!
