Day 2

Not excited for my porridge. Nup. Not one bit. After yesterday’s glue experience I was dreading it. However I added a touch more coconut milk and soaked the oats before cooking them and in the end it wasn’t all THAT bad. I miss my cereal and soy milk 😦

Again, I got hungry quite quickly and would probably give my pinkie for a coffee. Its amazing how quickly you realize how much you consume and the sheer price of it!
One coffee is about 2 and a 1/2 days worth of food on LBL. One coffee! It is so easy to forget that gum, mineral water, juice, piece of slice that you have throughout the day.

LBL is definitely teaching me lessons that can only really be experienced. And whilst this isn’t a true representation of the daily struggle that people living below the poverty line experience, I get a little taste of what it would be like.
I get excited for my lunch and dinners but not so much for breakfast. Continually reminding myself about the cause!!!

I am also very grateful that my best buddy Steph is texting me throughout the day for updates and chats about how ‘exciting’ our food is haha.
