So since it got a little bit warmer all I've been having for breakfast is milkshakes and smoothies. This probably sounds like I'm super unhealthy but I think they're actually a rather good for me, My favourite and most common one is a chocolate, banana and oat shake with a splash of almond milk and about a cup of water. All I do is blend 2 frozen bananas, a handful of oats, cocoa powder, a splash of almond milk and a cup of water. At the time we didn't have any cocoa powder in the house so I just replaced it with hot chocolate powder, although as far as I' aware it is just cocoa and sugar so nothing too naughty.
For lunch my Mum made a delicious salad which I had with 2 slices of my Dad's homemade wholemeal bread, houmous and some sriracha. I really love roasted almonds and I honestly think these are what made this lunch sooooo yummy, some salads can be pretty boring and samey but this was honestly one of the nicest I have had, I think solely because of the almonds.
As a vegan I feel like I get hungrier than most people, I don't know much about nutrition but I do know that animal products and bi-products are more difficult to digest so I suppose that must be a reason; So, for a snack I decided to have the exact same milkshake I had for breakfast but instead adding 2 cups of water and it did the job of filling me up until dinner perfectly!
For Dinner my Dad made risotto with chips made from our home grown potatoes. I feel like I should talk more about the risotto but the chips were honestly the best I had ever eaten, they actually tasted like potatoes and they were sooo fluffy and great. The risotto was of course lovely as well, it's something we eat a lot in our house but this time we had it with griddled mushrooms which was a great addition! Mushrooms aren't something we have all that often in my house since only me and my Mum like them so whenever they're actually part of a meal it's a treat!!
I also made a video of this What I ate Today, I just wanted to try something new so feel free to have a watch! And let me know if you like these posts because I really like making them.
