Soy/lemon/ginger/honey salmon and baby courgettes, sautéed in coconut oil, with diced red bell pepper, plum tomatoes, pecans and mixed salad leaves.
Broccoli quiche with buttery new potatoes, pesto pasta salad, orange and carrot salad and creamy sweetcorn and pepper salad.
I went out to lunch today with one of my oldest friends (I can’t believe I’ve known you 12 years, Elise!) to a lovely delicatessen called Peppers. They have separate vegetarian/vegan and gluten free menus too if you so require them, which is always nice, as I know having a ‘restrictive’ diet can feel like you’re being a pest - this way your options are already laid out in front of you, woo hoo! :D
Lunch - 2x cage free scrambled eggs with paprika and nutritional yeast, rocket with balsamic and half an avocado with cracked black pepper.
Omelette (2 whole, 1 white) filled with spinach and tuna, cooked in coconut oil, with paprika and wild rocket with balsamic.
A couple of you lovely people have messaged me about the elimination diet/cutting out foods for acne and have all been very helpful! Hence why I’m eating eggs - y’all have said they’re okay. I’ve ordered a book about the “Whole 30” diet as quite a few of you swear by it to help acne. So thank you for all the help! :D
Crayfish, avocado, salad leaves, black pepper, lemon juice and a Dijon vinaigrette.
I hope Pret A Manger never stop making salads! They’re the best. :3
Carrot sticks, sugarsnap peas, red bell pepper, cucumber and red pepper hummus with pistachios.
Pistachios, red grapes, peach and pear soya yoghurt with chia seeds and spelt crackers.
Homemade miso soup with tofu, edamame beans, chestnut mushrooms and rice noodles. Recipe can be found here! :)
Lunch - sweet potato, almond butter, cinnamon, maple syrup, almond milk and soya butter mash with crushed walnuts on top.
It may not look like a lot here, but I had a serious food baby going on after this - trust me, there’s a lot, haha.
Hummus, guacamole, spinach, beetroot and tomato sandwich in malted bread.
This does come with fries but I only focused on the sandwich because it was so colourful/beastly! I usually hate tomatoes unless they’re cooked, but these ones were sweet and delicious and unf. (Unf is an adjective. It is. Shh.) From Hall & Woodhouse, Bath. :)
Soy yoghurt with half a pomegranate, sweet potato and almond butter mash, a fig and some spelt crackers.
If you haven’t tried this already - do it. Mash sweet potato (skins on) with some almond butter, maple syrup, almond milk and a bit of dairy free butter/spread. It will change your life. Probably.
Vegetable soup with croutons and wholegrain sunflower seed bread.
Spinach, orange bell pepper, cherry tomato, chickpea, pistachio and fig salad with a pomegranate molasses/tahini/orange juice dressing.
Tempeh, butternut squash and black bean warm salad with spinach and a drizzle of tahini.
I cubed some b-squash and roasted it in the oven for 15 minutes with a little rapeseed oil, and whilst this was happening I sautéed some red onion, fresh ginger and garlic in a wok before adding the cubed tempeh. After that, I added some water to soften the tempeh and create a sauce, along with black pepper, soy sauce and pomegranate molasses. Once the b-squash was done, I threw it in the wok, gave everything a quick stir then served on a bed of spinach. Nom.
I’m pretty set on becoming 100% vegan again - but last time I was 100% vegan I know I didn’t get enough protein, so I’m trying to make sure I have beans/pulses every day. Tempeh is a particularly awesome protein source if you’re new to veganism - this ‘salad’ has 30g of protein, so it’s definitely possible to get enough if you try. :)
Lunch - veggie taco bowl salad. (vegan, gluten free.)
Iceberg lettuce, black beans, cherry tomatoes, avocado, red onion, brown rice ‘tortilla’, cumin, paprika, lemon juice, black pepper and a drizzle of tahini.
I was looking for some gluten free soft tortillas in the local organic shop, but couldn’t find any, so I winged a recipe and made my own using 1/2 cup brown rice flour, a few spoonfuls of ground flaxseed and 3/4 cup almond milk, stirred together, heated some rapeseed oil in a frying pan and cooked until I thought they were done! This made 2 big wraps. :)
