3 x 3 x 3

Food of late has been rushed and minimal- I seem to be getting sick (again!) and have lost my appetite.. not great for a food blog! But I did finally have the time to get the photos I have taken off my camera, here are 3 breakfasts, 3 lunches and 3 dinners. What a nice coincidence!
Pear and Cinnamon Buckwheat
2/3 cup cooked Buckwheat (cooked with cinnamon & stevia)
1/2tbsp ground chia seeds
1/2 tbsp ground flax seeds
1/4 large pear
1/4 cup malt free soy milk
  • pre-cook buckwheat
  • combine buckwheat, ground seeds and milk- leave to absorb for 5-10 mins
  • Add pear and enjoy a lovely breakfast
I'm not a big fan of oats but I love the creamy taste and the way they warm you through and fill you up so I've been experimenting with steel cut oats- they've got more texture which I love and taste beautifully nutty. They may take longer to cook but boy are they worth it!
 Oatmeal with the lot!
1/2 cup steel cut oatmeal cooked with water and banana essence
cinnamon to taste
1/4 large pear
1 tbsp sunflower seed butter

 Banana and Sunflower Butter Oatmeal
1/2 cup steel cut oatmeal
2 cups water
3 tbsp sunflower seed butter
1 small banana
  • cook oatmeal
  • stir through nut butter (it will melt through)
  • chop a banana into it :)
Zucchini 'Pasta'
2 small zucchinis cut with the spiral cutter... I ate this mound covered in the special dressing below.. yum yum yum!
Falafel and Avocado Salad
1/4 Avocado
4 small falafel 
sprouts
lettuce
sugar snap peas
mushrooms
celery
Curried Falafel Salad with Special Dressing

Special Dressing
2 cups Lemon Hummus (home made- chickpeas, tahini, vinegar, water, lemon juice and rind, salt)

  • add the tops and edamame
