I’m on a bit of a banana buckwheat craze at the moment…loving both in every way shape or form…pancakes, snacks, cakes, cooked, soaked…seperately and together; you’ll see what I mean below!
What I Ate Wednesday Time!!! Before I go all foodie on you, you might have missed my post yesterday…Enlightenment…I’ve made a fair few big decisions of late, namely leaving my job and going back to study. If you want to know more check back on yesterday’s post!
Also due to the blog being out of action over the weekend (to put it mildly!), you might have also missed the post about Ireland’s Raw Kitchen…an amazing Irish company that I’m delighted to have found and honoured to have as my first blog sponsor!
I had a wondrous day of food yesterday (I say that a lot but more often than not it’s true!!!)
Banana featured first in the form of a huge thick and creamy peanut butter and banana cookie dough smoothie. Incredibly filling and 100% delicious.
I decided to opt for a glass….needless to say a long armed spoon was required to make my way through it, no way was this dough boy making it up a straw!
Topped with some homemade PB granola! Recipe for both coming tomorrow morning! It’s a two for one special
As if I hadn’t had enough banana at this stage I decided it was time I gave Sonia’s amazing banana buckwheat pudding another go (this is round two, round one went un-pictured!)
I’ll share my take on it tomorrow! Luscious, creamy and my favourite breakfast of the minute. As much as I love my overnight oats and even overnight buckwheat groats, cooked buckwheat really is incredible and the flavour works so well with banana!
Recipe Friday morning first thing (I do have one recipe already posted I promise their all not…”yet to come!” I’m making a bit of a habit of it!)
Then came lunch and it was buckwheat round two! Creamy edamame sundried tomato and zucchini buckwheat salad. Another recipe inspired by Sonia.
I’ll have my vegan version up tomorrow evening!
Snack as per usual remains un pictured… I had a nice crunchy pink lady apple and medium sized orange before hitting up the gym after work. It was spinning class day! Love my Tuesday evening spin class, look forward to getting my sweat on every week!
Post workout I delved in to this super duper calzone which I intended on sharing the recipe for yesterday…but I have it ready for this Friday evening now Wholegrain spelt crust vegan calzone packed with pumpkin, roasted red pepper, spinach and sundried tomatoes.
Definitely one to try! The polenta rolled dough makes it a winner every time; and who could not like a pumpkin filling!
For dessert I had a slice of my chocolate cherry cake from earlier in the week. I had to make use of some of the local Irish cherries that I’d hand picked with a little bit of baking.
My dad said I should go in to business after having a slice…the ultimate compliment! It was good! Recipe coming Saturday evening!!! So simple, you’re goana love it!
