What I ate today | RSPCA cupcakes

I’m not sure I should have eaten anything today after my epic ekka weekend. I was hoping to focus on healthful food but then a friend mentioned an area at work was selling RSPCA cupcakes in support of the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. Naturally I succumbed. Cruelty to animals is abhorrent, that said, when appropriate and when the ends justifies the means, I am a supporter of the selective use of animals for testing countermeasures developed and manufactured to protect humans. There are some diseases that are now so rare but so important the only way to test new products for diagnosis and treatment is by using animals.

This afternoon I experienced sudden onset vertigo and headache. I feel like I’m developing an infection of some sort. Because I’m not feeling well and to maintain the salmon theme I cooked a fillet of salmon in paper along with a cob of sweet corn.
