Well let me tell you, it's all been happening recently! With my new business up and running and spending lots of time in the kitchen creating new dishes I've all but neglected my blog. So you know what I needed? A little 'oomph!' When Caroline over at The Broccoli Hut made a call out for guest bloggers while she is busy planning her wedding, I jumped at the chance to help! This was just the thing I needed to get me writing again. But, I am honestly deeply honoured that she agreed. I really admire her health and taste driven blog and am a frequent visitor, I really recommend you give her a visit!
You can read my guest blog post for The Broccoli Hut, 'sopa de ajo blanco' here :)
So what have I been eating this week? The answer is ALOT! Monday and Tuesday have been experimental days, so Tuesday there was way too much food around the house and I found myself munching all day long....
For breakfast yesterday we demolished the remains of the very tasty raw pumpkin (less) pie recipe that I created over the weekend, it was delicious. And being raw and including vegetables, I didn't even feel guilty about eating it for breakfast! This is an awesome halloweeen recipe you guys.
For a mid morning snack I enjoyed a delicious chocolate orange Nakd bar with a a cup of pukka mint green tea. I adore these bars, they are my saving grace and I don't know what I'd do without them.
For lunch we ate squash stuffed with rice and lentils, a green salad and some of my hubby's delicious home made sauerkraut- the beetroot one!
In the afternoon we all snacked on my failed attempt to make oaty cookies- they fell into a gazillion pieces and became a kind of granola. But we ate it anyway! Sorry I have no picture however, they really weren't looking their best!
The girls and I also had fun making healthy spooky halloween treats. These cute apple slices with 'teeth' are a great idea and one I saw on Just add Cayenne a couple of weeks back. The idea came from a site which has tons of cool healthy halloween treats so we'll be making more of those as Halloween gets closer! So much fun to make the girls had a blast!
Yesterday we ate a ton of sopa de ajo blanco. I made a big batch and we ate it for dinner and will be having it again for lunch today!
So what a day- much more sweet food than I usually eat, but all very tasty. Today I'm going to enjoy a chilled out day eating leftovers and spending more time enjoying the beautiful outside while we still can....!
