🌶🌶🍞🥗Lunch today is a massive spicy “tuna” salad sarnie. Super tasty and made without oil!

Recipe for “tuna” spread (makes two very generous portions or four regular portions)

1 can chickpeas (drained and rinsed)
¼ cup canned sweet corn
2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
1 tsp black pepper
1-3 tbsp cholula (the garlic one works best)
1 tsp maggi liquid seasoning ( or just salt)
2 tbsp fresh cut chives
2 tbsp fresh cut dill
Optional 30g of low fat hummus to bind.

Just used a potato masher to crush the chickpeas (you still want some texture so try not to go mad)
Then all you gotta do is add everything give it a mix and stick it on some bread ( I am the queen of complicated recipes 😂)

I added some red onion, spinach and sriracha to make it fancy 😜

Vegan Mac Faux Cheese 🐭 There are lots of wonderful vegan mac and cheese recipes out there. This is one I frequent.

Vegan Mac Faux Cheese

2.5 cups GF macaroni pasta

½ cup raw cashews

¾ cup russet potato, peeled and chopped

½ cup carrots, chopped

¼ cup nutritional yeast

¼ cup unsweetened almond milk

½ tsp. smoked paprika

¼ tsp. garlic powder

½ tbsp. lemon juice

¾ tsp. pink Himalayan salt

¼ tsp. white pepper

Soak cashews in water overnight or add boiling water to them and allow them to sit for 15-20 minutes.

Bring a small pot of water to a boil and add the potatoes and carrots. Boil for 10 minutes. Remove from heat and drain.

In a separate pot of boiling salted water add pasta and cook according to instructions on the package. Drain pasta and reserve ¼ to ½ cup of pasta water.

While the pasta and veggies are cooking add the cashews, nutritional yeast, almond milk, spices and lemon juice to a blender. Next, add the cooked vegetables and blend on high for a minute or until smooth. Mix the “cheese” with the cooked (drained) pasta adding a bit of the pasta water to thin it out to your liking.

Honestly, I can’t think of anything better than a big stack of sweet cinnamon banana pancakes, drenched in maple syrup; topped with fresh fruit✨ I could eat pancakes for every meal👌🏻

Is porridge or oatmeal bad… all those carbs? 😨The answer is definitely yes😎.. that bad that I’m literally having oats for breakfast and dinner🍓. All those carbs are going directly to my brain to think🤔 and legs to run🏃🏼‍♀️. Glucose is ESSENTIAL for the brain to function properly and overall health. You should get AT LEAST half of your daily calories from carbs aka sugar aka life. Cut carbs, cut life. 🍬

Lunch for today.
I decided to try out making wraps out of spring greens and it wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be haha 😂. I cba to blanch them so just had it raw but was still perfectly edible.

I filled them with:
Wholegrain rice
Quinoa
Kimchi
Hummus
Quorn vegan chicken fillet
Carrot
Red cabbage
Red onion
Red peppers
Sriracha 🤤😍👌
