Pumpkin seed and cranberry bread with red pepper hummus, lettuce, dried cranberries, apple slices and organic peanut butter.
Breakfast today - banana, frozen berries, kale, iceberg lettuce, almond milk and flaxseed smoothie topped with nutty granola and a slice of wholewheat toast with soya butter and wildflower honey. :)
Cacao banana oatmeal with mixed frozen berries, pumpkin seeds, organic crunchy peanut butter and a drizzle of maple syrup.
I’ve been a little lazy with my food lately so I’m trying to make sure every breakfast is something different, healthy and photogenic! :D
Breakfast - two slices of homemade poppyseed bread with soya butter, scrambled eggs cooked in chilli oil with oregano and black pepper and apple slices.
Cacao banana baked oatmeal topped with dried cranberries, pumpkin seeds, organic peanut butter, white chocolate and a drizzle of maple syrup.
Carrot cake pancakes with dried cranberries, pumpkin seeds, organic peanut butter and a drizzle of maple syrup.
I had some chickpeas I had to use up so I mashed those, added apple sauce, grated carrot, cinnamon, ginger, vanilla, buckwheat flour and a dash of maple syrup, mixed them all up and voila! It actually worked! I’ve never tried beans/pulses in anything sweet before but these pancakes were delicious, had a great texture and are packed with protein. :)
Wholewheat French toast with cinnamon and flaxseed, sliced banana, mixed berries, pumpkin seeds and a drizzle of maple syrup.
Banana French toast oatmeal with chocolate/almond/maple glaze, apricots, dried cherries and pumpkin seeds.
Oatmeal - steel cut oats, mashed ripe banana, cinnamon, unsweetened almond milk, vanilla and an egg whisked in at the very end.
Glaze - almond butter, melted 80% dark chocolate square, dash of maple syrup and some unsweetened almond milk. Yum! :D
I have indeed! Plenty of people were negative towards my decision. And not even in a subtle way either - it was direct, intense hatred. I thought that was insane! These people didn’t know me and wanted me to burn alive! D:
The worst part about vegan culture is the militant vegans. Because of them people naturally assume you’re forceful and vicious if you don’t eat meat, let alone if you’re completely vegan too. It wasn’t as if I’d suddenly decided to go on a culling spree - I’d thought long and hard about my decision to eat eggs (and very occasionally dairy) again.
I would like to go vegan again, however, when I’m completely funding myself and no longer have to rely on the crutch that is my parents and their income. Until that point, I’m happy with my diet! :)

Also, last night I met Brendon Urie!!! (aka lead singer of Panic! At The Disco! :D)
They’ve been my favourite band for the past eight years and because my boyfriend is the absolute best, he managed to get in to the Panic! listening party in London and I was his +1! I reckon there was only about 100 people there so we were very lucky! :D
If only 12 year old Freya could see this now, she’d be sobbing for sure, haha! It almost doesn’t feel real, I can’t believe this was only 24hrs ago. Ahh! ^_^

Sorry I’ve been gone so long! The course really is taking up a lot of my time so I’m still being pretty blasé about food and having the same things over and over. I thought I’d have more time at the weekends to experiment but I’m spending those going to open days and seeing my boyfriend, so no such luck there, either!
Anyway, our current theme is ‘flight’ and I’m working on the supernatural ability of flight and superheroes as a whole, hence the costume, haha. So that’s the little update for now! (I’m sort of meant to be Black Widow, in case anyone asks. ^^)
Hope you’re all well, half term is only 3 weeks away and posts will return more frequently then! :D xo
Hello! Well, technically I’m at a college as I’m doing a foundation degree for now. But it’s going well, thank you! No horrendous flatmates… as I’m at home this time, haha. We cover absolutely everything in this course so naturally there are things I’m not going to like, but my course leader is 100% more enthusiastic than my A Level art teacher which is fantastic.
The course itself is pretty intense, hence why I haven’t been posting very much at all on here (sorry for that!). I’ve managed to skew the theme in my favour so I’m doing quite a lot of illustrative work right now, to hopefully go in my portfolio. Soon it’s time to apply for universities all over again, ahh! D:
I have to scan my sketchbook in, so there’s a digital copy in case I lose the physical one. Once that’s all up I’ll leave a link here if anyone is interested. ^^
