Hi everyone! I hope you’re having a great week so far 🙂
Jenn’s latest theme is ‘Spooky Snacks and Healthy Halloween Treats’. I’ve never been that big on Halloween, but I’m looking forward to checking out all the spooky concoctions that people create over the next few weeks.
For this week’s WIAW party, I’d like to show what I ate yesterday. No horrors, but lots of lovely eats.
I’m still loving the breakfast smoothie milkshakes, especially on those days when I’m short of time or have been out for a morning run. One of my favourite Autumn/Fall flavours is apple & cinnamon. The addition of yoghurt makes it nice and creamy, while the spices add warmth.
For lunch, I had a bowl of home-made curried parsnip soup.
This soup is sweet, silky smooth, warming and oh so yummy! For me, this is another soup that’s perfect for Autumn/Fall. The spice I used was Garam Masala, which gives the soup a gentle hint of Indian curry. Lil’ L loves it, so hopefully other children will too 🙂
hot lemon; nettle tea; cherry & cinnamon tea; 2 coffees
I needed to make a quick dinner yesterday as I was heading out to my study class, so we had spaghetti bolognaise. We hadn’t had this dinner in ages!
I used half a packet of Linda McCartney Vegemince (which I bought from Holland & Barrett) and my favourite pasta sauce… Seeds of Change Organic Tomato & Basil Sauce. Into the sauce, I also added a large, finely grated carrot and a finely chopped courgette (zucchini).
When the bolognaise was cooked, I allowed it to cool down slightly then sprinkled in some Marigold Nutritional Flakes with added B12 (this adds a cheesy, nutty flavour and lots of lovely B vitamins). We then served the bolognaise on a bed of organic wholewheat spaghetti.
I made 4 portions of bolognaise and Lil’ L took the remaining portion for his school lunch today, wrapped in a wholewheat seeded tortilla, which I lightly toasted to give it a crisp topping.
Fresh pineapple with Alpro natural yoghurt. Sorry no pic… I had to dash to my class!
When I got back from my class, I had some home-made granola with a drizzle of almond milk, which I served in a cute little ramekin.
So that’s me done for another WIAW. Thanks as ever to our gorgeous host Jenn over at PeasandCrayons.com.
Enjoy the rest of your week everyone xx
