Healthy veggie curry....
Quorn, mixed peppers & spinach curry with wholegrain & quinoa rice 😍

I had to raid the freezer last night for dinner & found a bag of quorn chicken (my daughter is veggie!) mixed peppers & chopped spinach so thought I'd make a quick basic curry!

I fried off an onion for a few minutes then added a crushed garlic clove, a big handful of the peppers, 5 'lumps' of the spinach & about 400g of the quorn. Once the spinach had softened I added 2 heaped tbsp of medium curry powder & let infuse for about 3 mins. Then I added 150ml of warm water and a tin of chopped tomatoes and I left it to simmer for about 15mins. Once it had thickened a little I added half a tin of coconut milk I had found in my cupboard (could use any cream instead) & I heated that through for a few minutes. Because I was in a hurry I served it with Uncle Bens wholegrain & quinoa rice which only takes 90 seconds in the microwave! 😍

You can add in any extra herbs & spices that you like in a curry eg garam masala, hotter/milder curry powder ect & if you don't like quorn then you can just swap it for chicken or prawns ☺

Jamie Oliver's banana, almond & cinnamon porridge 😍
Woke up to a very wet morning in Scotland & really felt like a big bowl of porridge for brekkie!
I found @jamieoliver recipe online & thought I'd give it a try as I had all the ingredients πŸ‘
I'm not normally really into porridge as it's normally too heavy for me first thing & also sometimes it feels just like a bowl of 'sludge'! πŸ™ˆ This recipe was amazing because the poppy seeds, toasted almonds & sliced banana gave it different textures πŸ‘ŒπŸ˜
Very easy to make & was actually so delicious-exactly what I felt like this morn & will definitely be making again & also now want to try the other flavours! ❀

(serves 4)

Brekkie this morning...
My favourite crunchy peanut butter & sliced banana on sourdough toast! 😍
I was worried when I gave up sugar that I wouldn't be able to have anymore peanut butter but was so happy when I found @wholeearthfoods peanut butter didn't contain any added sugar-it only contains roasted peanuts, sustainable palm oil & sea salt πŸ‘Œβ€

I've decided to start a #fridayfinds πŸ˜€
I'm going to try find a new item each week that doesn't contain added sugar πŸ‘ To kick-start this off is a very tasty Spinach, Feta & Roasted Red Pepper Quiche from @higgidy πŸ‘Œ
I found this in my local co-op while I was looking for something quick to go with a baked potato & salad for dinner tonight. I was so happy when I scanned the ingredients list & didn't see the words sugar/dextrose etc!
It's quite expensive in comparison to the other quiches but they were on offer & it's so tasty that I will definitely be buying more & will probably try some of their other products. I really loved the poppy seeds through the base 😍

Overnight oats for brekkie this morning 😍
Most mornings I feel like these overnight oats but I've forgot to make them the night before! I made sure I made it up last night for me to enjoy this morning!
I used 40g of quakers wholegrain rolled oats, 210g Greek yoghurt, a handful each of raspberries, blackberries & strawberries. I just layered them-oats, yoghurt, berries two times then covered them & put in the fridge overnight. In the morning I just mixed it altogether πŸ‘ I don't like too much food first thing so I only have half & will save the other half for tomorrow πŸ‘Œβ€

Happy 1st of June everyone ❀ (Can't believe it's June already-where does the time go!) Busy month in our house-it's my boy's last few weeks of primary school πŸ™ˆ we've got his prom & all other the stuff that goes with the end of year! Its also the month of my girl's birthday, her school activities week trip to an outdoor centre & then we're off to Canada at the start of July! I'm tired (& skint!) even just thinking about it all πŸ™ˆπŸ˜‚β€
(The flower in the picture is one that my boy found on the beach & came back over to give me! πŸ˜πŸ’™)

Tried out vegan ice-cream for the first time tonight!
I always seem to have one or two bananas that end up going a bit over-ripe that no-one will eat! I had read somewhere that you should just take them out their skin & freeze them in a zip lock bag so I found 3 of them tonight in my freezer & thought I'd try making ice-cream with them! I took them out the freezer about 10mins before starting so that they softened a little & then I sliced them & chopped up a mango & also found some frozen berries & added a handful of them! All you do is add the 3 fruits into a blender & whizz until smooth! If you like it soft then you can eat it straight away or if like me you prefer proper scoops of ice-cream then just put it into a covered bowl & into the freezer for a wee while until it firms up then top with some desicated coconut πŸ‘Œ Mine in the picture is still quite soft but I couldn't wait any longer to eat it!

Quick & easy camping dinner tonight of fresh tomato & mozzarella tortellini with a basic tomato & basil sauce at the beach ❀ (the quality of the pic isn't great as it was so sunny-good complaint to have!)

Strawberries, raspberries & blackberries topped with Greek yoghurt & sprinklings of toasted flaked almonds, pumpkin seeds & chia seeds 😍😍 This is so easy to throw in a bowl quickly in the morning :) I normally have this for brekkie but sometimes have it as a pudding :) I used to be a bit intimidated with all the different/fancy seeds out there lol but I now just buy the little bags from the supermarket & sprinkle a wee handful on top of yoghurt & fruit etc I like it as they give you a bit of a crunch when you're eating the soft fruit & yoghurt so it's good to have that different texture on there & although they're tiny, they are full of goodness!
