Off to see some sun tomorrow with my mum and brother on a last minute spontaneous trip to Menorca 😁💖 I'm most excited to go adventuring the shores and see what's hiding underwater 🏊🏼🐠 Also looking forward to seeing the fruit and veg selection, my brother and I love exploring supermarkets abroad and seeing what weird and wonderful things we can find 😋
I love making sweet treats and desserts that look and taste naughty but are actually wholesome and not bad for you 😋 because it means I can eat all these doughnuts and still feel great 🏃🏼♀️🤸🏼♀️🍩
I don't use oil or refined sugar in my cooking/ baking. These bad boys also happen to be gluten free.
No exact recipe (forever making things up as I go along) but the ingredients for the dough were: buckwheat, coconut, flax, nuts dates, spices and water. For the frosting: dates, avo, cocoa, vanilla and a pinch of salt.
I'll make them again for sure, so I can upload a proper recipe post and so @plantfedmonkey can share them with me because he missed out this time 😅
This baby 😍 mango, nectarine, orange and a dash of turmeric & cayenne ✨ and topping it with passionfruit brought it to the next level 👌🏼
However, no flavours compare to the most beautiful fruit out there... jackfruit 💖✨✨ Yesterday morning @plantfedmonkey and I ate jackfruit in the sun, loving every bite, totally in awe of Mother Nature and her ability to create such incredibly tasting things. So so grateful 🙏🏼
Chickpea and corn crackers for when I'm craving avocado toast, but can't have it body isn't reacting well to gluten (again) 🙄 so made these with a few simple ingredients: chickpeas, sweet corn, garlic powder, onion powder, smoked paprika and herbs. Splash of water to blend and spread onto tray (with reusable non-stick sheet) scored lines, sprinkled on sesame seeds and stuck in oven til crisp 😜
When you want a smoothie, but you're feeling a bit extra and it turns into a glass full of magic ✨💃🏼
Pink = raspberry & banana.
Purple = blueberry & banana.
Blue = plain soy yoghurt, oat milk & spirulina.
BTW good job to @tescofood for creating a great unsweetened plain dairy free yoghurt! My mum always complained that the alpro plain was still too sweet for her and finally we discovered Tesco's freefrom one only had 3 ingredients (plus water) - hulled soya beans, calcium phosphate and bacterial cultures. This is also a plus because you can have the plain yoghurt with savoury food without it tasting weird and sweet.
Just did a quick comparison with a popular brand of dairy plain yogurt (onken) and the freefrom one is higher in protein, same amount of calcium and lower in saturated fat & sugar (show comparison on today's story) 😋
On a real mustard dressing kick atm 😍 also enjoying experimenting with cooking dishes with mango in them 😋
Not the most attractive of pictures, but this was really more of a "clear out the fridge" sorta thing, finding any veg I could and chucking it together 😅
Always excited for dinner when potatoes are involved...(okay, always excited, but even more so with potatoes 🌝) I feel sorry for people who don't realise you don't need oil to cook potatoes. A table spoon of oil has about 14g of fat, which is the same in half an avocado. But with avocado you get all extra nutrients, beautiful texture and tastes so damn good!! Whole fats ftw 😍
And omg that salsa... toooo good - tomato, red pepper, mango, garlic, lime, chilli, coriander and a touch of salt & pepper 👌🏼
Turmeric oats are such an easy, tasty and wholesome breakfast 👅 and oi oi check out them poppy seeds, local and zero waste...we had so many poppies growing in the garden I've managed to fill a whole jar 😋😋
Apple & rhubarb crumble with strawberry nice cream. I found some ripening rhubarb in the garden and couldn't help myself 🙈 no sugar or oil used as usual!
And no that's not a hair in the spoonful... rhubarb fibres 😅
Probably one of my favourite meals (even though I realise I say that about everything 🙄) the avocado was just so dreamy... the mustard dressing banged too 👅 brown rice and quinoa mixed is oh so lovellly! The only way I could've made it better would've been if I added some black beans or chickpeas... either way @plantfedmonkey and I loved it and ate all the leftovers too 😋
