This was the scene in my kitchen late last night. Breakfast and lunch made for the next day.
Breakfast was 1/3 cup oats, 1/3 cup almond milk, 1/3 cup yogurt, 1 orange, 1 pistachio and cranberry truffle crumbled on top. Taken to work and eaten at my desk. Rather yummy.
Lunch was a salad made with smoked mackerel, sprouted chickpeas, sugar snaps, cucumber, cherry tomatoes and celery. With such fresh and tasty ingredients, there was no need to add a dressing.
I sprouted the chickpeas last week when I made the hummus. After soaking them for nearly 2 days I kept some aside for sprouting and they are now ready. They are packed full of nutrients so really good for you.
For supper I fancied soup and remembered my whizzy blender makes soup from scratch. I put in to the blender 250 ml milk, 1 cup cauliflower, 40 g Feta, 1 tsp cornflour, 1/4 tsp bouillon, 1 shallot.
Put it all in the blender and blend on high for 5 minutes. It comes out at perfect eating temperature! It did not need heating as it heated itself while it blended. So smooth. And so white.
But I didn’t like it that much. The overwhelming flavour was of raw onion and being so white made me think it would taste sweet but it didn’t. I ate it but will not be making that again.
Harvey and I wanted a pudding so I made something else with a mango, frozen banana, half an avocado and some cacao nibs.
Then decided it was not chocolatey enough. I didn’t have any chocolate in the house but I did have carob and Molasses so I added about 1 tbsp of each.
This was thick and dark and ……
strange. I liked it, Harvey didn’t. The texture was fantastic. It did seem puddingy and rich but had a strange tang to it. However, I enjoyed it and my body will appreciate the nutrients.
A strange old dinner then, the first half light, the second dark. My eating today has been very healthy so I go to bed feeling good about myself.
