Surprisingly I've found today's supposedly easy What I Ate Wednesday theme harder than yesterday's Cookbook Challenge. Less stressful? Sure! But strangely I've quickly gotten used to having what I'm eating planned out or at least randomly chosen for me.
I started the day with a classic Jojo breakfast, baked beans on toast. Wholewheat's my bread of choice for this meal & I enjoy a co-op own brand organic bean.
After reading a lot of MoFo blog posts and going for a run along the seafront I came back to my kitchen sweaty and starving! The quickest thing I could put together was more toast, I chose Warburton's Sandwich Thins this time around, accompanied by a blob of hummus. Yum!
I followed this with an Alpro Peach yoghurt. These are my new favourite yoghurts, the cherry ones are great too but they seem to have disappeared from my local store.
After showering I snacked on one of these delicious treats. These Nature's Path bars are yet another thing I brought back from America. I love love love these coconutty, chocolatey granola bars.
For lunch I wanted something quick & easy and my go to for quick & easy recently has been this Vegan Omelette For One from the blog Fat Free Vegan Kitchen. I make this as written except I skip the tahini; for no other reason than that the first time I made it I'd run out and I loved it anyway so I saw no need to mess with something I already loved. The ingredients are simple and they whizz up super fast in my mini blender. This is one of my favourite gadgets, I wouldn't ever even entertain the idea of getting rid of it!
After blending you just pour your ingredients into your non-stick pan and cover it with whatever filling you desire - in this case some leftover Smoky Soy Curls from Football Food Sunday.
In the time it took to cook I threw together a quick salad of green leaves, tomatoes and grapes with a drizzle of hemp oil.
I love how you can just fill an omelette with whatever leftovers you have lying around and they always come out great!
When dinner time rolled around I'd been reading about desserts all day and I wanted something sweet. Pancakes for dinner seemed like an awesome idea! It wasn't hard to choose which pancakes to make, I wanted something fruity and seasonal so Isa's Apple Pie Pancakes were the clear choice. If you read my MoFoing last year you might remember this post? I got so overexcited when Isa posted the recipe for these that even though we were about to head to bed I whipped up a quick half batch for Nick & I to enjoy!
Tonight there was none of this portion control nonsense happening though, oh no, these are dinner pancakes and the only correct way to eat a dinner pancake is to have two portions!
