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”

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”

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)”

One Month Fully Plant Based

After a full month on a plant based diet I am happy. I feel healthy and confident with my choice. This has been about health for us and for the first time in a long time I feel like I am finally on the right track. Something I love about following a whole foods plantContinue reading “One Month Fully Plant Based”

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”

Stony Stratford to Cosgrove

Okay, not quite Stony Stratford. We started from the car park at Ouse Valley Park which isn’t really in Stony but it is only a hole, skip and a jump away. This one is a much shorter walk than I had hoped for but it is what happened. I chose the starting point and AlanContinue reading “Stony Stratford to Cosgrove”

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Cookies, Biscuits, or whatever other word you want to use. Sometimes you just need a cookie but getting them with no dairy, egg or oil would be a nightmare. Cookies are easy to make which is luck because I lost my oatmeal cookie recipe and had to wing it. No worries, I have now doneContinue reading “Oatmeal Raisin Cookies”
