How are you all? I hope you've had a lovely week. The weather has been so up and down this week it's crazy! I feel sorry for my Dad who's just come back from Hong Kong, he couldn't believe all the sun we had whilst he was away - it was monsoon season there so he's just had a month of non-stop rain ha ha!
Anyways let's get down to business! I've been doing a bit of cooking and baking this week, plus eating out at some new places which was nice. Why not check out the pics from my week...
Asian Style Noodle Salad with Sweetcorn Frittas
I've never made this before, in fact I made it up as I went along actually! It's soba noodles and courgetti with a satay style dressing and some sweetcorn fritters. Great way to start the week!
Breakfast Acai Bowl
First smoothie bowl of the week!
Breakfast Banana & Mango Smoothie Bowl
Do you remember when I made this a few weeks back? It was so good I decided to make it again. It's a banana and mango smoothie bowl with all my usual fav toppings. It just looks like Summer don't you think?
Buckwheat Pasta with Kale, Peas, Beans and Courgette in a Basil Dressing
So, it looks like there's a lot of bowl food this week! Here is the buckwheat pasta I love to make. I added some parmesan on the top too for an extra bit of saltiness - plus balsamic dressing because... well, why not hey!
Almond Milk Porridge with Berry Compote & Almond Butter
Thursday morning porridge! Great post yoga practice with Jane. I've not had porridge since Winter! Can't believe how good it was as well. Cant wait for it to start getting a bit colder because you know why... :) (I know, I know, I should have been born an elf! Ha ha!)
Yuuumy Green Smoothie
Friday lunch at The Greenhouse with my usual taster plate of 5 salads
Friday night I was treated to a delicious meal at the new Alchemist in Alderley Edge. Will be putting a post up on here soon. For those curious, I loved it!
Hong Kong Style Eggy Bread with Almond Butter and Mashed Banana
So this is one of my hub's fav breakfasts on a weekend. He usually has it with peanut butter inside and smothered in golden syrup! I know, super healthy right?!?! Ha ha! I decided to change mine up a bit and add almond butter with some smashed banana in the middle. I will say it was ah-mazing, but also not the healthiest! I cooked it in coconut oil and used a nice organic almond butter but even so, it just tastes like it's bad for you because it's so so good!
Common Ground Altrincham
(top) Tacos - BBQ Beef brisket, kiwi salsa, coriander yoghurt, spicy pickled onions
(bottom) Poke Bowl - Tuna, rice, greens, picked carrot, cucumber, pickled ginger, soy dressing
Another place I got to try this weekend was Common Ground in Altrincham. I know I've been here before but not for the food. It was so yummy! Another place I want to do a post on so I won't share too much he he!
Bill's Trafford Centre
BILL’ S SUMMER SALAD - Baby kale, freekeh grains, super sprouts, asparagus, blueberries, watermelon, red onions, Bill’s house dressing, flatbread
FISH FINGER SANDWICH - Tartare sauce, rocket, ketchup, toasted bloomer, sweet potato fries
Saturday night was date night at the TC with my Mamma! We had a bit of shopping to do so we nipped to Bills for some food. I had the fish finger sandwich which was so good. It's like comfort food for grown ups!
Big Sunday morning brekkie. I had an omelette with some homemade omega bread. It might not look that good but the bread is so so nutty. It's very dense but tastes amazing!
Lunch at work! I took an 'ESS' Smoothie with me and mixed it in with a bottle of Skinade to give it an extra boost. It was so delicious and kept me going all afternoon!
Emmaline's Super Skin Smoothie
Vegan Banana & Oat Cookies
So I managed to squeeze a bit of baking in too today. I love these cookies so so much. I know my hubby does as well. I think he gets all excited when there is a black and overripe banana hanging around in the kitchen ha ha! He know's it's a sign!
Well I hope you've had a lovely week too. I've been running around as usual like a crazy woman, I'm good at that!
Thanks so much for reading, I'm off to get myself a cookie and a brew!
