Hello lovely people!
The weekend is upon us again and I for one is very glad that it’s mad it’s pretty arrival. It’s been one tiring week and quite frankly I’m feeling quite drained. But, I have lots of fun in store this weekend so that makes up for the hectic week- cos’ yah gotta take the good with the bad!
Did you manage to check on my very first guest post on the lovely Emma’s blog?
We set ourselves a little recipe challenge where we each had to pick one random ingredient each and incorporate both ingredients into our recipes. You can read my guest post here. It was so much fun guest posting and I loved the challenge of creating a recipe that had to include both ingredients. 🙂
Other than eating copious amounts of my raw chocolate covered bites yesterday morning for breakfast I decided to have a lovely bowl of Dorset Cereals High Fibre Flakes with two chopped pink lady apples and some vanilla rice milk.
This morning for breakfast I was channeling that banana vibe again and made a lovely bowl of voluminous and creamy banana oats made with vanilla rice milk and water. I was going to keep this bowl of oats very simple for a change, but on the contrary on came the toppings…
…dehydrated blueberries, shredded coconut and a gigantic spoonful of dark chocolate dreams…
Yum!!! I’m so glad that I didn’t go topless with my oats…ahem! Sorry, couldn’t resist the urge to write that one. Childish I know. 🙂
Lunch on both days has been the most amazing hummus topped salad. I picked up a pot of the best hummus EVER created, Sabra hummus, when I was shopping the other day. This time I went for the piquant pepper flavour and it was a-m-azing, just as I was expecting. I would have been happy with just a plate full of hummus to eat to be honest. However, I thought I would mix it up a little and added romaine lettuce, red pepper, cucumber, olives, spouted beans and lentils, black olives and raw sprouted sunseeds provencale by Raw Health.
Dinner on both last night and tonight have variations of the same stir fry served with brown rice. It included pineapple, broccoli, red peppers, spring greens, onions, hispi cabbage, mushrooms and coriander.
This was fab! 🙂 I made a sweet and sour style sauce using sweet chilli sauce, soy sauce, ume plum vinegar and lime juice. I used to order sweet and sour sauces all of the time from the Chinese takeaway, but loved this version a whole lot more.
I’ve also been enjoying lots of fresh fruit topped with vanilla soya yoghurt and a raw chocolate sauce.
Russet pear, persimmon and strawberries.
I’m so excited for this weekend as the time has arrived for the Summer Sundae festival that I am attending on behalf of Alpro Soya. A part of me is regretting that I won’t be pitching up in a tent, but the festival is only a 40 minute drive from my house and the weather is being very unpredictable too. There is an amazing and varied line up! I’m most looking forward to seeing Example, Newton Faulkner, Dionne Bromfield and The Maccabees. There’s also so many other bands playing that I want to see, way too many to mention. A lot of them are new to me too. Oh and lets not forget the comedy tent too! Of course I will be hitting up the Alpro Soya breakfast stand as soon as I arrive.
I would just like to mention that I am attending the festival on behalf of Alpro Soya as a guest after accepting their invitation and not as an employee. My opinions in my wrote up post will be my own and I haven’t taken any form of monetary payment to attend or been influenced in anyway.
Well I think that clears up any of the formalities! 🙂
I hope you all have a beautiful weekend! 🙂
Have you been to any festivals this summer?
Have you discovered any new bands recently?
