Thank you so much for everyone’s kind words regarding yesterday’s post. It feels so good to realise that I am not alone in this and that many of you out there are going through or experiencing the same thing where their relationship with food is concerned. I think I just need to remember that such food isn’t really that unhealthy when eaten in moderation. I am a firm believer in everything in moderation and I think may be I have lost sight of this…work in progress I think!
I found this article on this topic that you may interesting:
Yesterday’s breakfast was a lovely bowl of my Apple Strudel Oats...
…which I then topped with some Yeo Valley fat free vanilla yoghurt.
I’m loving the addition of yoghurt to my oats. It makes them even more creamy and this tasted like dessert not breakfast!
For lunch I ate some Jerusalem Artichoke, Parsnip, Celeriac soup with some fruit.
This soup was simple simple to make. It’s just blitzed up veggies and stock…simples! Don’t be put off by it’s dark and murky colour. The soup is lovely and sweet and the Jerusalem Artichokes lend a deep nutty flavour.
Mid afternoon I snacked on the last of my Kale and Sundried Tomato Hummus with raw broccoli.
Love this! Homemade hummus is definitely the way forward! 🙂
Dinner was a mammoth plate of stir fried vegetables in a spicy tomato sauce sprinkled with seeds for extra crunch. This veggie mountain consisted of mange tout, baby corn, lots and lots of savoy cabbage and mushrooms…
Got to love a huge plate of veggies, especially when stir fried. I haven’t had a stir fry in what seems like forever, but I will definitely be having them more often after this took only minutes to make. It’s also a great way to use up left over vegetables as literally anything goes with a stir fry, there are NO rules!
The blender came out for dessert as I made a banana and peanut butter smoothie.
This frothy delight included 1 banana, 1/2 tsp of xanthan gum, 1 tbsp of peanut butter, 1 tsp of ground flax, 200 ml of hazelnut and almond rice milk topped with dried cranberries.
I’m so excited!!! My first baking vegan cook book arrived today.
I love a good recipe book and everything in this looks so delicious…
Check out that amazing ingredients list. I seriously can’t wait to start baking up some goodies with book. I’ve also ordered Vegan Yum Yum, which has yet to arrive. I have seen so many other vegan and vegetarian, healthy living cook books that I have already added to my wish list. I can see that this is going to lead to an obsession and a mammoth recipe book collection.
Well I’m off now for a cuppa and a mooch through my new book. I think a Sunday baking session is definitely in order! 🙂
Do you have a recipe book obsession? Do you have a particular recipe book that you go back to all the time?
