A clumsy couple of days

by Peachy Palate on November 7, 2012

I’ve quite a few treats in store….yesterday’s eats went spectacularly well. I was due some success in the kitchen after my clumsy weekend! I managed to cut myself three times, pretty badly; I’ve worked my way through an entire box of Hello Kitty plasters!

I broke one of my favourite plates, drop my SLR smack bang on the floor, luckily enough it seems to have managed to come out of it injury less! I had a bread baking disaster, I made a kidney bean curry which was so bad I actually just threw it straight in the bin, and everything generally took twice as long as it should have to come together. It was like my limbs, namely my hands were working completely out of sync with my mind; it was the latter that was running a little behind!

I was back on an even keel by yesterday! Before I get eats you might have missed by two latest nutrition posts…

Another fad diet?A look at the Glycemic Index and Glycemic Load

What’s Fiber Got to Do with It?

I’d love to hear your thoughts and feedback, let me know if you learn anything new of have anything you’d like to add!

And so back to What I Ate Wednesday!

So food…. Yesterday started off with a super size thin crepe style buckwheat crepe. It feels like forever since I made one of these for breakfast and I’ve finally perfected the recipe (it will be up tomorrow morning!) I filled it up with some stewed plums which almost turned to jam and topped it off with almond butter, flaked toasted almonds and chia seeds…It was delicious!!!

For lunch I’d whipped up a chickpea, spinach and pumpkin coconut curry on Monday night. Topped off with some roasted chickpeas for an added bit of crunch.

Creamy, sweet with a nice bit of kick..incredibly comforting! I’ll have the recipe up for this simple dish tomorrow.

Canned chickpeas all the way; once you can make sure they’re BPA free!

I pretty much face planted in to the bowl, wiping it clean before heading out for a late afternoon meeting.

I had every great intention of whipping up a fig based salad but there were no figs to be found on my journey. With some pomegranate molasses in hand I got a little inventive.

Sweet chili pomegranate molasses tofu with soba noodles! Plenty of spice and all things nice! I was impressed with my handy work; and totally in love with the pomegranate molasses! I’ll be making further use of it this week for sure. I’ll have the recipe up for this wonder Friday evening!

(Note the same material used to photograph lunch and dinner and likewise to the peanut butter banana bread below and breakfast pancake….photography laziness at it’s best!)

Yes more banana bread! This one really was awesome! Soft, moist with a nice ripple of banana and a peanut butter flavour. It was damn good! I’ll have the recipe up Friday morning for you; it’s a must bake this weekend!

Favourite meal of the day….I’m between the banana bread (if two slices counts as a meal!) and the pomegranate molasses chili tofu!

I had an apple, a juicy pear and a bowl of grapes, blueberries and cantaloupe during the day; the bowl of fruit topped with a Alpro soy yoghurt and a spoonful of bee pollen! Smile

Your food looks so colorful! What a beautiful sight on such a grey fall day.
I haven’t made pancakes in quite a while. Guess I’ll have to whip some up on the weekend. Thanks for the inspiration!

Ahhh, you’re crepes are so pretty! :) I am scared to make crepes; I fear I’ll burn them.


Carinne November 7, 2012 at 1:46 pm

Two more sleeps! :) Well worth the wait I promise!


Susan November 7, 2012 at 2:54 pm

Yum the chickpea curry looks wonderful.

Things dont always turn out the way we want them to, in the kitchen. Happens to all of us! Today, I tried to make pancakes and it was a total fail..

Those crepes look AMAZING!


Peachy Palate November 7, 2012 at 7:06 pm

Thanks Shannon! Recipe will be up first thing in the morning!

Thanks for sharing. Happy WIAW!!

That tofu and soba noodle dish is so creative! And it looks delicious too.


Peachy Palate November 7, 2012 at 7:08 pm

Your goana love it! Well if you’re a tofu fan? :)


Giselle@ahealthyhappyhome November 7, 2012 at 7:13 pm

I haven’t had crepes in so long! I love them so maybe it’s time to bring them back :-) Your pictures are wonderful! So bright and colorful! The banana bread looks to die for!


Peachy Palate November 7, 2012 at 10:18 pm

I have a tendency to forget about them too! Eating another slice of it now..SO GOOD!


Olivia @ Liv Lives Life November 7, 2012 at 7:54 pm

Wow, I love all of your pictures! They’re so pretty! And that curry looks soooo good…


Miss Polkadot November 7, 2012 at 9:59 pm

That looks like a great array of meals! Again, some of them will make it onto my meal plan :). The pumpkin curry is a surefire candidate – roasted chickpeas are one of my favourite snacks.

Did you post a recipe for last week’s banana bread? Maybe I just didn’t see it :).


Peachy Palate November 7, 2012 at 10:19 pm

I decided I hadn’t quite perfected it…it needs a remake but this one tops it!

I go through clumsy periods like that, where it just seems like I can do nothing but drop things all day! All of the food looks amazing. I’ve been trying to find pomegranate molasses for a while, but haven’t come across it.


Peachy Palate November 7, 2012 at 10:19 pm

They have it in the Happy Pear- you can get it from their online shop! :)


Sunnie@moderngirlnutrition November 7, 2012 at 10:10 pm

That crepe is beautiful- mine always seem to fall apart:) I love adding chickpeas to curries too. Happy WIAW!


Peachy Palate November 7, 2012 at 10:20 pm

You too! This one won’t I promise, check back for the recipe tomorrow!


Julie November 7, 2012 at 11:37 pm

Can’t wait for the crepe recipe!


Amanda Fraijo-Tobin (@FraijoManda) November 8, 2012 at 12:59 am

So many beautiful dishes! I wish I had that creativity to make all my meals that “fancy” 😀 The banana bread looks especially amazing, I can’t wait for the recipe!


Peachy Palate November 8, 2012 at 4:33 pm
