I always have breakfast. Yesterday was plain, live, low-fat yoghurt - bio-yoghurt, I don't know who makes it - with unsweetened muesli without any nuts, a chopped banana, and tea with milk. I had a class from 10.30 to 11.45, and I always keep still water and a banana to hand because banana is very good for energy. Then there was a break, and I had an apple and a cup of tea. Then I had rehearsal from 12 to 2.30 - I ate a banana, a chunk at a time to make it last. Then lunch - two Ryvitas with Bel Paese cheese and a plain yoghurt. Nothing else apart from some tea and more water until dinner time. Dinner was a green salad, just lettuce with an oil and vinegar dressing, pasta with home-made tomato sauce and Parmesan cheese. A glass of white wine and more water. No pudding - I rarely eat them. Nothing else.
