What I Ate Wednesday

[donotprint] Seen as yesterday’s food was amazing from the outset I decided that it would be the perfect first What I Ate Wednesday post to share and join the party over at Peas and Crayons.

Not to take away from tonight’s AMAZING dinner featuring the last of my pricey figs.

Fig and Basil Pasta!

Figs and Pasta, not a combination that might immediately pop in to your mind but the combination worked a treat. The roasted red pepper (the left over pepper from yesterday’s beans) was a great little added extra.

Yesterday started with an incredible Blueberry, Plum and Pineapple Smoothie!


Followed by Vegan Strawberries and Cream Overnight Oats… Devine!


These were slightly superseded by my lunch…Fig, Peach, Feta and Green Bean Salad with Raspberry Vinaigrette!


I kept myself going until dinner with 3 Satsuma’s and 2 MORE plums…which I neglected to take a photo of!

Roasted Cauliflower Lemon Parsley Pasta with Toasted Pinenuts; the second Cauliflower dinner of this week, it’s hard to pick a favourite; they were complete opposites and both extremely moreish!

Before bed I had a bowl of red grapes, prunes and dried apricots with two squares of 90% Dark Lindt Chocolate. The only constant of my meals throughout the week!
