I forgot to take photos of one day this week, so again I have a little collection of what I have been eating.
After seeing grapefruits on Lucy’s blog recently, I decided to buy some. I love them, but have only eaten them on holidays for some reason. I do need to wear safety goggles however as they squirt all over!
I have also been loving fresh fruit and muesli combos- this was fig, pear, fruity muesli and coconut milk.
And of course lovely overnight bircher muesli- this was tinned peaches, chia seeds, almonds, fruity muesli, almond milk (all left to soak overnight) then topped with cinnamon in the morning.
(Broken) ryvita with red pepper hummus, spinach and fig salad with balsamic dressing.
A lovely wholemeal wrap (these are the discovery ones which are smaller than normal, and I freeze them which is why it is a bit broken), with hummus, rocket (arugula for our US friends), roasted butternut squash, baby avocado, basil and a fig, red pepper and rocket salad. MMMmm.
Another wrap with hummus, rocket and basil. Yum. Plus apple and more figs. Can you tell I have been eating a lot of figs recently?
Shake (? Smoothie?), with Good Hemp strawberry flavour and coconut milk.
Chocolate tea, persimmon, fig, and a carob and cherry cookie. This was part of what I made for the cookie exchange, and it broke, so of course quality control meant I could not send it!
Sweet potato, hummus, roasted veggies (peppers, aubergine, onion, courgettes) with hemp sprinkles.
Another wrap (obsessed?), roasted butternut squash, hummus, baby corn, spinach, avocado, basil tofu and fresh basil.
Home-made sourdough (I put some chia seeds in the dough and it was lovely) which I had with some bean and veggie bake, and cheese. I only took a photo of the bread as I was so proud of how it looked 🙂
Chocolate frozen yoghurt. This was OK, not as nice as the fruity flavours.
Blueberry frozen yoghurt- this was lovely, although I thought the pumpkin seeds were a strange topping. I really want to try the tropical stuff but have not seen it in the shops. So the strawberry flavour is my favourite.
My meals have seemed quite repetitive this week. The thing is, if I buy something I have to use it up- so things like the hummus were going out of date quickly, so I had to use the tub up in a few days. I roasted a butternut squash, but it was too hot for soup, so I had it in wraps and in salads for a few days to use it up. With the theme for this month being add in an extra cup of veggies, I think I have been doing this OK. My lunch can lack veggies (pb on something toasted and an apple being my fave) so having wraps has been good as I have loaded the veggies in them. Also fresh basil makes anything taste ten times better.
Less frozen yoghurt! And a bit more protein is needed.
