This or that!?

by Peachy Palate on September 16, 2012

I’ve seen so many of these posts and I’ve been meaning to do my own version….

Ashley had a great one a couple of weeks back! Some I’m jumping on the bandwagon…

To kick it off I’ll go with one that explains the food photos distributed throughout…hint hint! Smile

Mexican or Chinese Food?

Has to be homemade…I’ll go with Mexican on this occasion!

Strength Training or Cardio?

Cardio if I had to choose just one!

Almond or Peanut Butter?

Almond Butter, no hesitation!

Baked Oats or Stove Top?

It’s a toughie…baked!

Kabocha Squash or Butternut ?

Kabocha but of course!! Smile

Chocolate or Vanilla

I LOVE dark chocolate!

Cherries or Blueberries?

Cherries!!!

Hot Summer or Snowy Winter?

I wish we got one of the two extremes in Ireland! I’d always choose heat over snow though!

Sauna or Steam Room?

Has to be the Sauna!

Banana or Apple?

Never ever EVER though I would have said this but at the moment….BANANA!!!

Early to bed or early to rise?

I’m a morning person for sure, I’m a sleepy slightly cranky baby in the evenings, in bed by 10pm!

Butt or Boobs?

I’ve got more butt than boob!

Coffee or Tea?

Herbal tea…though I love my hot water and lemon!

Straight or Curly?

I’ve naturally curly hair but these days it’s ends up tide back in a knot out of sheer laziness most of the time!

Savoury or Sweet?

It changes over the course of the day! I’ve such a sweet tooth in the mornings! If I had to choose one I’d go with sweet!

Pancakes or Waffles?

Pancakes! We don’t do waffles in Ireland (not many do pancakes quite as often as me either mind you!)

Cake or Brownie?

Brownie! A good dense rich luscious chocolate brownie!!!

Bath or Shower?

Shower 99% of the time. Sometimes I yearn for a good soak but I never have the patience to wait for the tub to fill and end up wanting to get out after five minutes!

And there were vegan tofu fajitas!!! Such a simple recipe if you can even call it that! I made my own spelt wrap to house the goodies. A medium sized one which is possibly the best I’ve ever made! Thin, soft, easy to wrap, perfectly pliable with a delicious nutty tasty! Smile

The tofu itself after having been pressed and chopped lay in a mixture of spices, paprika, cayenne, cumin, coriander and chili…aminos and lime. Quickly cooked up in a pan and served on a bed of avocado, ripe juicy mango, fresh crunchy baby gem lettuce, grilled red peppers and sprinkled with a little fresh coriander and onions.

I hate a little of the filling before wrapping it up and slicing it in half which made for the perfect “eat and read” meal…I’m trying to get in as much reading here there and everywhere, which isn’t amounting to a whole lot! I’m loving learning lots of new and interesting bits about nutrition, research, statistics and facts, it’s just finding the time in the day to fit it all in; let alone relocating that part of my brain where it’s meant to be housed Smile

Back at Rude Health again today, I’ll have a recap by Tuesday for you!

Answer a couple of the questions above, I’d love to hear your preferences!

It’s odd that we don’t really have waffles here in England either. I seem to make pancakes more than the average person too!
