Today we went to see the Jurassic World Exhibition at the museum. It was a pretty fun day out all in all. I love Melbourne and the trams and we were able to catch a tram there with a pleasant walk at either end. I feel like they probably let a few too many people in each time slot as the exhibition was pretty crowded but it was cool and they’d done a great job of the dinosaurs and getting them to move in pretty realistic ways.
Afterwards we went to one of our favourite restaurant in the city and had some sweet and sour (vegan) pork with vegetarian fried rice. I’ve always been a fan of sweet and sour and haven’t managed to replicate the sauce the way I really like it, but the way this place does it? Just delicious 🙂 Afterwards I really felt like dessert but wasn’t sure whether to have the banana fritter that I’d had there before and really enjoyed, or to head across for a doughnut.
It was decided that I’d check which vegan doughnuts (donuts?) were available and the decision was made. They normally offer 2 vegan options daily, but this time they had 4. I’m hoping this is a sign that they’ve noticed the demand and that they will keep it up. We were going to get 3 as there are 3 people in our household but they offer a discount for 4, so….
In the end we got 2 of the Morrissey (choc donut with sprinkles and peanut butter cookie dough), a Sia Later (red velvet with a delicious icing) and a Rainbow one with a lemon glaze and skittles. They’re not all gone yet because we stop eating when we’re no longer hungry here now, but they have been thoroughly enjoyed so far and rest assured will be finished before they’re no good any more.
I’m also about finished Module 1 of Christy Harrison’s Intuitive Eating course. I’ve enrolled in this because, after reading the book, I’ve been convinced that this is what I need to do and how I want to live my life, but I know that I need reinforcement of the principles and support and reminders to ensure that I don’t ultimately just go back to haphazardly alternating between not caring and restricting. There are too many forces in this world trying to bring us there. I have been getting a lot out of her podcasts so thought it was worth giving the course a go. So far it looks promising.
