8th day!

Watched a lot of crappy TV, so pretty awesome day!! Made a very tasty hummus, made nicer with tomato chutney. Spent the morning at Eastlands, had to buy a white t-shirt for a party where everybody has to wear white! I rarely wear white, beige or pale colours, especially in winter but I managed to find one that looks pretty ok! Also bought some dry shampoo, fantastic stuff, eyebrow pencil and a couple of other bits and pieces.

What I ate today: (psst, it was a lot)…

B’fast: didn’t get up until 11am so no b’fast

Brunch: Muffin from Muffin Break – only ok, & soy cappuccino

Late lunch: hummus, carrot sticks, dairy free spinach dip, thin waffers, Linda McCartney sausage rolls (love them), onion chutney, piece of dark chocolate

Dinner: roast potatoes, salad, onion chutney

Recipe for Hummus

Chick peas, garlic, tahini, tomato chutney, olive oil, splash of water (because it was too thick) – blend it until still a bit chunky.

Found another awesome site called Love and Lemons with great salad recipes that I think I will make very soon. Check out the Vegan Carrot Cake Jars

These look so yummy!

6th day

Bit of a bust today, white bread (awesome pita from Banjo’s for lunch) and pasta because my white rice and veg green curry with fake chicken just didn’t fill me up. Back to salads and roast veg with salad and a bunch of fruit!!

B’fast: oats, banana, pear, soy milk

Lunch: fake bread and avocado toasted. Unhealthy but fucking awesome and yummy!!!

Dinner: rice, green curry with veg and fake chicken

snack (that’s what I’m calling it anyway); bowl of pasta with egg, chilli, garlic and vegan margarine.

oh, and a banana and kiwi fruit

I have felt crap the last few days and that may have been partly to blame for this craptastic eating day. Oops, forgot the cup of coffee I had after lunch, first one in 4 days. I’ve missed coffee so much and think I may keep my work day one. I’m definitely going to try this vegan cheese sauce this week sometime. It’s from Jennifers Kitchen

 

gonna smother roast potatoes and cauliflower with this cheese sauce!

4th day

Sunday is usually my time to say ‘fuck it’ and eat whatever I can get my hands on. Today I still pigged out but it was fruit and loads of baked veg. I think I might be over doing it a bit but it’s too good!!

B’fast: oats, soy milk, banana, pear & cinnnamon

Lunch: baked potato’s & green salad

Snack: mixed nuts / banana smoothie

Dinner: baked potato, turnip, onion, pumpkin in rosemary and garlic, with green salad and dressing

Really want some chocolate but will suffice with staring mournfully at this vegan chocolate recipeĀ  from onegreenplanet.org

slow cooker black eye peas

I’ve been wanted to cook with black eye peas for years and finally found some at Eumurrah. I’m still trying to find a shop that supplies black beans, but every bloody time I find somewhere, that’s it, they never seem to have them again. I will continue searching high & low, cause I really love them.

This looks easy. Found at The Healthy Family Home
