Sweet potato and quinoa veggie burger with raw slaw, salsa and multi-seed bun (from The Veggie Table at Borough Market).
I also had a fresh watermelon juice and J had an orange and mango, all of which was v. delish. :)
Spicy carrot and red lentil soup with chilli flakes and pumpkin seeds. :)
I boiled four small carrots in vegetable stock with a heaped tbsp of red lentils and a few shakes each of cumin, coriander, turmeric and cayenne, simmered everything for a while then blended, voila!
Homemade cinnamon nutty granola with kiwi and almond milk. :)
Breakfast: homemade cinnamon nutty granola, banana slices, cherries, blackberries and blueberries with almond milk.
(This granola is absolutely delish. I wasn’t expecting much from this as I know typical granolas are packed with oil and refined sugar, which this wasn’t at all, but it’s fab without it. It’s Deliciously Ella’s recipe, which can be found here. :) )
Cocoa banana breakfast quinoa with pumpkin seeds and maple syrup.
Lunch: quinoa cooked with lemon juice, s&p, oregano and chilli flakes, baby courgette, red bell pepper, sundried tomatoes, cucumber, sugarsnap peas, spinach and a drizzle of tahini.

1. Falafel mezze plate with tahini, lime and cilantro quinoa, harissa carrots, toasted flatbread and a few other things! (J’s)
2. Ramen noodles with crunchy vegetables, topped with tofu and spring onion in a lime satay sauce. (Mine!)
I’ve only been here once before but loved the food (esp. the portion sizes - great for someone with a lil stomach like me!) so much I couldn’t wait to come back. 90% of the menu is vegan and everything is so fresh - they even make their own “cheeze”! :D
Vegan roast dinner from VBites in Brighton - nut roast, cranberry stuffing, Yorkshire pudding, fluffy roast potatoes, ‘cheesy’ broccoli and cauliflower, braised red cabbage, sweet potato mash, roasted carrots and parsnips, peas, sweetcorn and red wine gravy.
Oh my goodness gracious. I haven’t had a roast dinner in years and this was definitely worth the wait. I wish I hadn’t had breakfast so I could’ve eaten every last morsel! Everything on this plate was delicious; I especially loved the cabbage and roast potatoes. I think all of this was £9.95, which for a huuuuge plate of such variety is a steal. I definitely need to have a go at all of this before Christmas comes around!
Cocoa banana oatmeal with mixed berries, pumpkin seeds, cinnamon, flaxseed, almond butter and maple syrup.
I’d apologise for having so many photos of this breakfast, but why change perfection?

Dinner - steamed sweet potato with thyme and tahini and roasted bell pepper, cherry tomatoes and sweet onion with sea salt, rosemary, white pepper and chilli flakes.
Cocoa, banana, avocado and almond butter smoothie with pumpkin seeds.
The thickest, creamiest and most delicious smoothie I’ve ever made. You could so easily fool someone in to thinking this was an unhealthy milkshake. I’m bad at photographing smoothies but I had to document this one!!
Recipe: 1 small avocado, 1 verrrry ripe banana, 1 tbsp cocoa, 1 tbsp almond butter, 1 cup ~ish almond milk and a few ice cubes.
