Half way through October, it’s chilly, the leaves have fallen and I’m in need of a new hat and a cute pair of gloves! (The new lululemon hoodie which I ordered last week, now eagerly awaiting it’s arrival on Irish shores, was totally justified! If they had a store in Ireland I would be broke…).
I also have a giveaway running until next week for some Irish Raw Chocolate….and it’s open to those across the EU and US! So get entering! Check out the post to find out more and see just how to enter.
And finally before I get to the food…I’m taking part in the cancer awareness support campaign this week with AXA PPP healthcare. They’re holding a whole host of free online expert chat sessions among other things. Have a look to see how you can get involved and avail of the extra support they’re providing.
I go through phases of liking certain things for breakfast. I’m back in instant bake loving mode after the incredible deliciousness of the blueberry cornbread bake. I’ve never tried making one using protein powder…
Now that I have I’ll be making a whole heap more! Instant Quinoa Chocolate & Banana Protein Bake!
Absolutely awesome! The didn’t want it to end. Seriously in love with this one! Recipe will be up first thing tomorrow….it’s one not to be missed!
Lunch…was yet more pumpkin! This time in the guise of a new spicy flavourful pumpkin and blackbean chili. Such comfort food. Arriving in to a bowlful of this on a chilly day…heart and belly warming!
I picked up a cute little orange pumpkin in the Happy Pear and roasted it before adding it the chili that was bubbling away I’ll have the recipe for this up tomorrow evening!
And then dinner…..
THE BEST CHICKPEA BURGER EVER! (Just so you know I almost wrote… “Seriously in love with this one!” AGAIN!, clearly I need to extend my vocabulary!)
A spicy sweet potato and chickpea burger on one of the best homemade buns I’ve ever made. Chickpeas just make for the most spectacular burgers and when used as a base, especially with something a little starchy require so few other ingredients to hold the whole thing together perfectly.
Recipe will be up for my new improved burger buns and the chickpea and sweet potato burger Friday evening!
So what else do I have for you….
Finally got around to making a batch. Crispy on the top, soft in the middle, just the way every perfect muffin should be. I’ll have the recipe up for these first thing Friday morning.
Best meal of the day…I seriously couldn’t pick one! Each and every meal was astounding. I surpassed even my own expectations! The perfect day of eats!
What’s your idea of the perfect day of eats? [/donotprint]
