‘’When life gets in the way, all you need is food.’’
And that has most definitely been me this week. I have had a break from blogging to catch up with everything and organise myself. I have overcome some obstacles and had some emotional goodbyes, but I am back and ready to blog about the food I have loved this month. It is crazy how much can happen in the space of a week! Time goes way too quickly.
‘’A small bowl of porridge each day could be the key to a long and healthy life after a major study by Harvard University found that whole grains reduce the risk of dying from heart disease.’’ Telegraph News.
Porridge, of course, is a huge staple in my diet and I have it for breakfast every single morning without fail. It keeps me full up and is a great way to include fibre into your diet, releasing energy slowly throughout the day until lunchtime. I have to experiment with toppings as much as possible to ensure I am trying a variety and I look forward to my breakfast. A mixture of different fruits alongside nuts, dried fruit, milled linseed and 85% dark chocolate are all the yummy things I like to add on top. My homemade granola sprinkled on top is also another discovery I have found! It adds extra crunch and tastes insane, check out the recipe here.
- Dark chocolate covered dried cranberries, these are little balls of magic and are a sweet treat too.
- Banana and nut butter = mmmm. Simply slice your banana into several slices and dip into peanut butter, a marvellous creation.
- Fruit juices, freshly pressed for a little boost of energy and vitamins.
This month Adam surprised me with a night away in Manchester, tickets to see a comedy and an evening meal. We ended up eating at Chaophraya = Thai Restaurant. The service was great and the food was extremely lovely. The array of starters and mains were pretty mouth watering and I still want some now. Definitely somewhere to go back to!
Greek yoghurt, granola, fruit and chocolate are most definitely my most favourite things to eat before bed. Even my boyfriend enjoys this? So I must be doing something right. It is super refreshing and satisfying to have before bed and isn’t too heavy on the stomach after eating a main meal. I have previously shown in recent posts what I have on top of my Greek yoghurt but here are a few more pictures ^.
I hope this has somewhat inspired you or you have just had a general nosey at what I have been eating.. I am still continuing to eat well and indulging sometimes to ensure I have a healthy balance.
