Is it just me that goes off green things after being ill? When I am unwell I revert to the plain carbs- plain toast with some spread (or maybe jam), plain crumpets, maybe some cereal. Anyway, as the theme of WIAW is being green, I did try!
Smoothie with pear, almond milk, peanut flour and frozen fruits (I think raspberry and cherry) topped with a little crunchy cereal. This was so filling but also gave me some brain freeze!
Caramelised onion hummus on sunflower ryvita, with peppers and cucumber for dipping, plus grapes and a graze dip- dried apple with caramel (which I saved for a bit later).
Peppermint tea (that is green- does it count?) and a peanut butter brownie from the freezer. The tea was the best peppermint tea I have ever had, from the Naked Tea and Coffee company in Brighton. So minty. 🙂
Some green- roasted asparagus and fennel (which is more white I suppose), plus butter beans cooked with red onion, peppers, passata, herbs and spinach. I made some kind of tahini dressing with lemon juice- I only used a tsp tahini but I had to add loads of lemon and it ended up being very rich.
Red onion, pepper, basil and oregano.
Add a small drained tin of butter beans and a small carton of passata, plus a little water.
Then add spinach.
This ended up being very rich (maybe from the passata) and I put half in the freezer- it would be like very posh beans on toast I think. Anyway, there was some green from the spinach but it cooks so fast.
A peach yoghurt, which was super creamy.
I had some green (cucumber, spinach, asparagus, peppermint tea and the green herbs) as well as other colours of fruit and veg (important to get a range of nutrients after all) so pretty good I think. I had not had asparagus in ages and after seeing Lucy have it I decided to try some again. It was OK, but I prefer broccoli so I think I would buy that next time instead. Ah well, it is good to have some variety.
Thanks Jenn for organising the link up.
