Dinner - spicy grilled tofu and mushrooms with cherry tomatoes, edamame, spinach, a side serving of broccoli and a peanut/orange sauce.
For the tofu I pressed a third of a block, chopped it in to 5 slices the put some cornstarch, cumin, ground coriander, nutritional yeast, smoked paprika and cayenne pepper on a plate, mixed it up and rolled each piece of tofu in the mix. Then I just sprayed the griddle pan a few times with a lil’ bit of oil and grilled away!
The dressing is simply a tsp of peanut butter, pinch of salt and some orange juice (which I microwaved for 20 seconds - they heat helps everything emulsify) and bam! Awesome dressing. :D

Quinoa flake baked banana oatmeal/pancake(?) with strawberries, flaxseed, cinnamon, organic peanut butter, crushed walnuts and a drizzle of maple syrup.
For the ‘oatcake’ I loosely based the recipe on the ‘5 minute baked banana oatmeal’ recipe and used 1/3 cup quinoa flakes, 1 small mashed banana, 1 egg, 1/3 cup unsweetened almond milk and a dash of cinnamon, poured in to a large bowl with a big base and hence it came out quite flat and pancake like. I enjoyed it, though! :)

Oatmeal/zucchini/dark chocolate chip pancakes with organic peanut butter, coconut, pumpkin seeds, a little maple syrup and some strawberries.
I really wanted to make Curtis' carrot cake pancakes today but we didn't have any carrots! So I used grated courgette/zucchini instead, with rolled oats, 1 egg, cinnamon, mashed banana, apple sauce, vanilla, a few dark choc chips and a little buckwheat flour, cooked in some coconut oil.
They were surprisingly delicious! I make pancakes/pancake like breakfasts quite often now and it really is so easy to make them healthy and still taste great. You don’t need refined flours, copious amounts of syrup and oil to make them tasty, I promise! :D
The next time I make them I’ll note down the recipe so I can share it with all of you. :)

My family went on a picnic this evening so I made them this tuna, spinach and pepper quiche. :)

I tried to make it a little healthier than your atypical cheese/cream laden quiche, so packed it full with filling. The filling is made of 2 cans of tuna, 4 eggs, about 1/3 cup almond milk, some paprika, nutmeg, s&p, nutritional yeast and about 1/3 cup mild cheddar, as well as the veggies. Sprinkled on top is some parmesan. Oh, and I made the crust using a 2:1 ratio of white to wholewheat flour.

I think this was a fair compromise without sacrificing flavour and upsetting the not so health conscious members of my family, haha. Hopefully they enjoyed it!

(whilst I stayed home ironing and watching Doctor Who. yup.)

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
