I haven’t managed a blog for a couple of days as I was working in Birmingham. I can’t blame excessively long working hours this time – a fun evening out with the team was responsible for no blogging time.
I didn’t eat sensibly in Birmingham and drank too much so this morning I was filled with resolve to do better. Harvey wanted egg and bacon for breakfast – anything my little cherub’s heart desires….
I had to collect him from school in the morning as he has succumbed to the terrible cold I had last week and which James has this week.
So what he needed was lots of nutrition.
A smoothie, made with pineapple, orange, banana, soya yogurt, poppy seeds, maca and lucuma powder.
It was delicious.
Lunch was a quick and easy bowl of wholewheat pasta with tomato sauce.
For dinner I felt a little more adventurous. A large tray of roasted vegetables, made with red peppers and courgettes,
new potatoes, cherry tomatoes and mushrooms. Mixed with olive oil, salt and pepper, roasted for about 40 minutes at 180 ° C.
I also made a simple guacamole with lime juice and some salt and a roasted chick pea dish which was lovely.
I made one of Gena’s recipes for a Roasted Chickpea Salad. I didn’t have all the ingredients so I used garam marsalla, soy sauce, olive oil and Lee and Perrins. I mixed the ingredients together, stirred in 1 can of chickpeas which I then baked in the oven for half an hour.
This was a great dinner. It was a great days eating. Have a good weekend 🙂
