After more than two weeks we have the internet back. Oh, how I have missed it. Thank you to all my friends who have allowed me to share your internet access and plied me with teas and coffees so I can post the occasional blog. It was fun.
Now here I am at home again, feeling quite contented to be able to post about some of the interesting food I have been experimenting with recently.
I am trying to make sure half of what I eat is raw. I am not sure why but I didn’t take a photo of breakfast. It was some strawberries, a banana, protein powder, acai powder and soaked goji berries, which I whizzed up in the blender and then froze overnight so I had a cold ice cream like breakfast. Rather pleasant.
Lunch was great and again I made it last night. In to my lunch box went some left over wholewheat Udon noodles (we had them for lunch on Sunday), raw cauliflower, some chick peas I had sprouted, tomatoes, carrots and pomegranate.
I topped it with lamb’s lettuce, watercress and fresh mint and coriander.
With a dollop of hemp seed humous I made on Sunday and half an avocado. The hemp seed humous and avocado added essential healthy fats and were the only type of dressing I used. I really enjoyed this salad as it had an interesting variety of flavours and textures. It certainly took some chewing too so I felt very sated after it.
I went for a wander at lunch time. It was raining so I wimped out of a walk any further then the market. I was looking for a treat and was drawn to this fruit and veg stall.
At home I had a fancy for onions, Tamari and Halloumi. I have had very little cheese recently and felt I could justify some tonight. For 2 of us, I chopped up a large red pepper, one brown and one red onion, half a head and stalk of broccoli and a huge handful of kale. I stir fried them with some coconut oil.
I used very little oil as I mainly steam fry by adding Tamari soy sauce and a very small amount of water. The tbsp coconut oil adds a good flavour. This was a delicious combination of vegetables, sweet coconut and salty Tamari and haloumi.This was a good days eating 🙂
