Hellooo! I hope everyone is well. I have sooooo many food pics to post so I'll just get crack-a-lackin. Also, I turned 30 a couple of weeks ago....AAARRRGGGHHH!!
For my birthday lunch I went to Zizzi in Meadowhall with my mum, dad and Andy. It was also our first wedding anniversary. I had vegan pizza followed by vegan nectarinni. Both delicious.
Also had this amazing cocktail (got to have treats on your birthday right?!) It was strawberry puree, mint, rosemary, lemon, lime, amaretto, vodka and soda water. Deee-lish!
I went to Harrogate for work and got to stay in a beautiful hotel. I also got some really nice food there; a superfood salad and sweet potato fries. They were really accommodating and also had some unsweetened soy milk for me at breakfast time.

I also went to Bath for work again, below is my lovely lunch from Cafe Rouge which is opposite our shop. It had a Bistro salad with smoked beetroot dressing and Frites. Tres bien. It also had little roquito chilli's which I've never had before, they were really sweet and had a chutney sort of taste to them. Will try and find them to have again. I also put a picture of the view from seat in there, a really pretty stained glass window.
I had scrambled tofu with onions, cajun spice and black olives on toast for breakfast one morning. I made a batch of chilli using veggie mince from Tesco and bits and pieces from my cupboard.
I had loads of leftover chilli so I had it for lunch another day and then mixed with some macaroni for a quick dinner too. I also tried the new Nakd bar carrot cake flavour; it is nice but not as carrot cakey as I had hoped. I was really excited to try this one too! Took me a while to find it, I've only seen them in multipacks in Tesco so far.
Below we have movie snacks; sweet popcorn and skittles! I also found vegan salad cream at Tesco (hallelujah!) It's perfect. I have salad cream and ketchup with most food.....I just try to take a pic before it gets slathered.
Two standard dinners with Poppy never too far. Linda McCartney sausages with butternut squash, cabbage and gravy. More LMC sausages to the right with a jacket potato, salad and hummus.
I've made banana bread three times in the last couple weeks! Love it! So good for using up those over-ripe banana's. I don't use any refined sugar, just sultana's to give it some sweetness. It's very dense so I put vitalite on it like malt loaf. I also signed up for a Riverford Organics box! For £13.95 I get a box of Organic UK veg delivered on my doorstep every Friday now.
With my first box today I have made beetroot and carrot soup, so impressed with myself haha! I've been very domestic today.
And of course I made more banana bread!
Soooo many pictures, so little time! I'll leave you with this - I lolled hard! It's so true!
Have a wonderful week!
