Thanks so much for your awesome comments on my last post. I found all of your different views on the media very interesting to read. I haven’t had time as yet, but I will be replying to all of them soon- so remember to check back!
Eat breakfast like a King, lunch like a Prince and dinner like a Pauper. Ok! So maybe I don’t eat like this where portion sizes are concerned as all my main meals generally tend to be the same size throughout the day. However, as far as breakfast is concerned I always eat like a King (or Queen), cos’ I like me a good breakfast and this weekend has been full of them…
A hearty green smoothie is definitely worthy of royal credentials. Full of healthy goodness and essential nutrients, green smoothies never fail to disappoint and Friday’s smoothie was pretty tasty!
*Triple Chocolate Nut Green Smoothie*
huge handfuls of spinach
2 cups of rice milk
2 cups of water
1 tbsp of cocoa and nut ground flax
1 scoop of vegan chocolate protien powder
1 tbsp of cashew nut butter
2 tsps of xanthan gum
1 tsp of lucuma powder
1 tsp of mesquite
agave nectar to taste
Toppings: peanut flour sauce, carob powder sauce, half a bag of Bear granola.
Definitely fit for a KING!
Saturday’s breakfast was feast of warm mixed berry oats. Here I mixed half a cup of oats, mixed frozen berries, wheat germ, ground flax, rice milk, water, agave nectar and topped it with some melty melty Dark Chocolate Dreams.
WooWWwWWW! This was delicious!
*Chocolate Spelt Pancakes with mixed fruit*
Ingredients (makes 5 pancakes)
1 cup of spelt flour
1 1/2 cup of chocolate soya milk
1 tsp of baking powder
1 tsp of cocoa powder
Mix all of the ingredients together to make a smooth batter. Pour into a hot prepared frying pan in equal portions to make small pancake shapes. When the batter appears to form bubbles on the surface it mean that the pancakes are ready to flip over to cook on the other side.
Stack the pancakes up high on your serving plate and serve with mixed berries and fruit of your choice. Add cashew nut butter on top and drizzle over some melted Nutella (both optional).
A-MEH-ZING! These pancakes are not heavy at all, just light and fluffy inside due to the extra 1/2 cup of soya milk to make a thinner batter. YUM!
Other extra ordinary eats this weekend include:
A socca pizza topped with Red Pepper Hummus, olives, red onion, spinach, sun blush tomatoes and a red pepper. I love how something quick and simple like socca can be so versatile and tasty.
Yesterday’s lunch was taken straight from the freezer: Squash, Bean and Tomato Stew.
Today’s lunch was some fresh and light cabbage wraps that I filled with hummus, courgette and smoked tofu.
I don’t really eat cabbage wraps that often, but these were lovely! They make a great light alternative to regular wraps. I can’t wait to make these again. 😀
Dinner tonight was a delicious bowl of whole wheat spaghetti with mushrooms, leeks, string beans and edamame beans in a sauce made from nutritional yeast, water, rice, milk, corn flour and parsley.
This was really good! And the best thing is the huge amount leftovers that I have for tomorrow’s lunch!!! 😀 As well as this yummy food I manage to fit in an awesome 10K run done in 1 hour and 2 minutes. It was quite and easy run despite the rain and wind and I felt pretty good afterwards, so much so that I decided to jump on the bandwagon and sign up to Daily Mile. I think it’s a great way for me to log and keep track of my progress. So add me if your on there too!! 🙂
What’s the best thing that you ate this weekend? What is your favourite meal of the day? Obviously my favourite meal is breakfast. I have to have an awesome breakfast to start my day off the right way.
