How are you all? I’ve finally got a chance to sit down for 5 mins whilst Theo is chatting in his cot (he’s supposed to be sleeping!).
Since returning home after Easter I’ve got back in to salads and more raw vegan food in a big way. I was tired of feeling like rubbish and decided it was time to honour my body more by stopping feeding it less than nutritious food. Here’s some of the meals/snacks I’ve been enjoying.
These salads are virtually identical- greens, tomatoes, cucumber, avocado, olives, balsamic, hummus. I usually have some hummus and crackers on the side too or add in a veggie burger of some sort.
Dessert one day was grapes and leftover dark chocolate easter egg. Surprisingly there’s still some easter egg left!
For Monday night’s dinner I revisited one of my favourite cookbooks, Appetite for Reduction, and made this veg and lentil soup. The only thing I changed about the recipe was to use low-salt veg stock so Theo could have some. There’s still some leftover which I’ll probs have with rice tonight. So good.
Lunch today was on the lighter side as my appetite was down after a stressful incident where Theo nose-dived out of his buggy and hit his head on the concrete. We had to get straight in the car then to head home and he fell straight to sleep in the car. I was paranoid about concussion but he’s been chatting in his cot for the last hour! Those 5 min cheater naps ruin naps for the rest of the day. So frustrating; he’s going to be a such grump. I’m going to have to dig deep. It’s been one of those weeks where Theo’s napping has been rubbish and he’s been a miserable. Joy. Oh yeah, here was lunch,
I just had one of the raw truffles. They’re surprisingly rich. I used my juicer for the first time in ages- this had cucumber, celery, carrot, apple and ginger. It was ok but not brilliant. Nonetheless, it’s so good to have more raw food back in my diet.
Right, I have to go and collect a grumpy Theo from his cot. I’m hoping to post a great vegan toddler recipe on the weekend, if all goes to plan.
Hope you’re having a good week. xxx
