🌶🌶🍞🥗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
½ cup raw
¾ cup russet
potato, peeled and chopped
½ cup carrots,
unsweetened almond milk
½ tsp. smoked
¼ tsp. garlic
½ tbsp. lemon
¾ tsp. pink
¼ tsp. white
in water overnight or add boiling water to them and allow them to sit for 15-20
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.
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. 🍬
