Hi everyone! I hope you have all enjoyed your weekends.
Thank you for all of your very helpful comments on my last post about mascaras and makeup brushes. I will be definitely checking them all out in the next 6 months leading up to the big day.
So this week I have been getting over a cold, but have really been trying to make an effort with my food. Usually when I am ill I just cannot be bothered, but I think the thought of eating delicious food has really helped me along this week.
There has been so much deliciousness that I have picked my favourites and shared them all below:
Carrot and Lentil Soup with raw crackers
Chopped pineapple, grapes, hemp milk with berry spelt puffs for breakfast
My Carrot Cake Bulgar Wheat Batter. I have a recipe for Carrot Cake Oats somewhere which I nased this recipe on but cannot seem to find the link. It included cooked bulgar wheat, hemp milk, water, a grated carrot, cinnamon, desiccated coconut, raisins, walnuts and maple syrup…yum!
Inspired by Laura, salted pretzels with a chopped apple, strawberries and white chocolate wonderful.
Baked aubergine, courgettes, mushrooms and a sweet potato in a passata sauce and grated vegan cheese.
A basic green smoothie made using a banana, spinach, hemp milk and water with some muesli.
A layered salad ate at my desk: mixed salad leaves, kidney beans, bulgar wheat, tomatoes, cucumber and pineapple. So fresh and tasty!
A toasted hot cross bun with vegan butter and jam with a chopped apple and strawberries.
Vegan cinnamon and nutmeg dark chocolate with the new Tin Tin movie and a manicure for a bit of a mid week pampering session. And don’t knock Tin Tin, the kid in me loved it!
This week I took an extra rest day at the begging of the week and have been taking it pretty easy with my usual workouts. I am feeling 100% better though so it will back to normal next week and hitting the gym hard. I cannot wait! I did go on a lovely run this morning at it was really lovely out even though a tad cold.
On another note, I picked up these amazing milks in Asda all for a pound. I have almost finished my hemp milk stash that I picked up at Tescos when it was on offer. I really love to bulk buy when things on offer, usually in excess. I find it works as a it of a money saver in the long run and these milks are really lovely.
Alfie even bulk bought some Tempeh for me yesterday from the health food shop whilst I was at work. I cannot wait to get marinating and baking it!
Well I’m off to enjoy some vegetarian enchilada cooked my my lovely hubby to be, watch a movie and then take a leaf out of Laura’s book and have a bit of a pampering session with this lot to see out the week:
Liz Earle face exfoliator, Liz Earle face mask, Lush Coco Lotion and L’Occitane en Provence peony shower gel.
What have you been up to this weekend?
Do you like to bulk buy food when it is on offer?
Have you watched the Tin Tin movie?
