Hey hey! Another Wednesday has come around again and it means that it’s time to share some foodie goodness with y’all!
A little while ago I posted about my favourite ways to eat certain foods in this WIAW post. Since I’m still hibernating in Oxford I haven’t really taken that many pictures of my meals so I thought it might be nice to share with you some of my current foods to eat at meal times for a spin on things.
My current favourite breakfasts has to be smoothies made using lots of frozen berries. I really enjoy the creamy thickness that the frozen fruit gives the smoothie. Also stocking up on frozen berries in particular can be much cheaper than buying fresh berries as you get way more in the bags and they are often on some kind of deal in the supermarket.
This particular smoothie was made using mango, frozen mixed berries, a banana, rice milk and water and topped with coconut butter and spelt rice puffs…so good!
On Saturday I took took a salad to work with me which contained mixed salad leaves, cucumber, gungo beans, roasted squash that I dug out from the freezer, dried mixed berries, cashew nuts, and chilli mixed seeds. I made simple dressing using the strawberry balsamic vinegar that I got in my Secret Santa. A whole mix of randomness but it tasted really lovely.
Sometimes I do like to mix things up I have been taking The Food Doctor pitta pockets to work, soup or even a good ol’ veggie snack plate with a huge serving of hummus for dipping.
At the moment I am addicted to making up my own snacks using dried fruits and nuts for snacks in the afternoon. My current favourites to mix up are salted almonds, dried mixed berries including cherries, dried mango pieces, prunes and dates.
This stir fry is one of my favourites as it included one of my new favourite foods, kelp noodles. The texture is a little weird first, especially if you don’t soak them in boiling hot water but now I’m addicted. This particular stir fry included broccoli, sweet potato, edamame beans, red pepper, mushrooms and cashew nuts in a sauce made from ginger, garlic, chilli, soy sauce, rice vinegar and sesame oil. I’m a huge fan of a huge plate of veggies.
Dessert snack plates of chopped fruit with dried berries, chocolate and nut butter frozen berries in rice milk. I also like just grabbing a few handfuls of chocolate covered sunflower seeds for dessert too…saves on the washing up, ha!
