Roasted chickpeas

Snacks have been a frustration for us at times. I really love crunchy snacks and this has been a struggle. Popcorn is an option but plain is boring. Veggies and hummus is nice but doesn’t quite hit that chruchy snack craving for me. Roasted chickpeas have been a great option. You can do a slewContinue reading “Roasted chickpeas”

Weekly Menu 27/08/2020

Last week I promised a review of how my menu plan worked along with my plan for this week. I will go over breakfast, lunch and dinners separately. The breakfasts were completely different to my 0lan. I had spotted bagels at the store and had that with peanut butter. The plan was smoothies but whenContinue reading “Weekly Menu 27/08/2020”

What I Eat on a Walking Day

My walk this weekend was only about 4 miles so not enough to be concerned about eating lots of extra calories or snacking during the walk. The temperature was slightly chilly for me without my jacket but hot with it (just a little after resistant cycling jacket). Though there were my most dreaded hills itContinue reading “What I Eat on a Walking Day”

Oreo Birthday Cake

This is NOT a healthy recipe! It is to die for though and it is plant based and there is no oil; however, the amount of sugar pretty much negates any health. So, why was this cake made? The hint is in the title…Emily’s 20th birthday. This is in fact her recipe and she madeContinue reading “Oreo Birthday Cake”

Tortillas

I love tortillas. I love most flatbreads I guess. I might, I dare say, have a bit of a bread issue in fact. I have provided you with a naan recipe before and I have a plethora of bread recipes yet to come. I have experimenting yet to do. But today it is a quickContinue reading “Tortillas”

What I Eat in a Day

I did one of these a few weeks ago and had someone comment to me that they found that helpful. I guess I do enjoy watching this sort of thing on YouTube so I guess others might find it helpful too. I am not a fancy cook at all. I am a home cook. AContinue reading “What I Eat in a Day”

Cheezy Sauces

Everyone and their dog have a faux cheese sauce these days. I am no different. I have tried one other and found it thin and bland. I modified it but still didn’t have the flavour I like. I have watched a few YouTube videos with various different takes on cheeze sauce and found some inspiration.Continue reading “Cheezy Sauces”

How I Try to Reduce Shopping Waste

Plastic-free July just ended. I don’t do anything special in the month as it feels a bit false for me. No idea why that is…I am an odd duck so it is just me. I do try to live more sustainably but I am not perfect and will not pretend to be. Today, I amContinue reading “How I Try to Reduce Shopping Waste”

Oil-Free Naan (vg)

As breads go naan is a favourite. I love dipping it in curry or if big enough filling it with curry and salad to eat as a wrap. The action of kneading the dough and the joy of watching it rise just feels good and if you are having a bad day can give youContinue reading “Oil-Free Naan (vg)”

Sweet potato and Spinach Curry

Curry is a great dish as you can pretty much put anything you like in there and have a spicy, rich meal. I made this curry for the sake of Sunday dinner but when I posted the picture on Instagram someone asked for the recipe. So I guess the recipe must be done which meansContinue reading “Sweet potato and Spinach Curry”
