Taking Stock – January 2018

 

blog combo x 3 me with stick

Inspired by the beautiful and clever Pip Lincolne of Meet Me At Mikes, I decided to do my own ‘Taking Stock’ this month, given that’s it been a bit of a monumental start to the year. You can see Pip’s own ‘Taking Stock’ over here.

Cooking :
I’m craving zesty, fresh and light things, salsa, tzatziki, baked salmon, steamed veg, sushi. I do a little bit of food prep but husband does most of it, given my state of not-too-wellness. Continue reading

This was my breakfast the other morning, brekkie salad – avocado, baby spinach leaves, tomato, almonds and I added some quick fried tempeh – delicious!

I was inspired by a recipe from The Stone Soups ‘Love your waistline and your food’ book. The book appears to be paleo-centric but will have a much wider appeal, some great recipes, with the philosophy of ease, health, quick and tasty food – my kind of eating.

Jules has lots of recipes on her blog here.

how to make onions disappear

I’m a big fan of a tasty condiment. They are especially useful when you’re trying to make healthful changes to your diet and maybe missing a few of your old not-so-healthy favourites. Think of them as a chance to discover new tastes and re-train your taste buds.

So this is one of my favourites Continue reading
