Make ahead breakfasts: the saviour of busy people across the planet. On days when I’ve forgotten that I really need to wash my hair, make some lunch and buy a train ticket I am incredibly grateful for the days when at least I know I just need to grab a jar of cherry bakewell overnight oats out the fridge as I dash to the train station ticket office with my hair still wet.
Time flies, and apparently so does the first part of September! I totally forgot to finish this before going on holiday. I considered leaving this one out altogether, but I’d actually already prepped most of it in terms of recaps and such (below). So here it is, much delayed: what happened in August on the blog?
Meal prepping food should be easy and the end result, irresistibly delicious. My lemon chia pudding ticks both those boxes. Topped with bright, homemade vegan lemon curd and tart berries, this divine make-ahead breakfast ticks all my boxes for a grab-and-go breakfast.
What does your average person take to the gym every day? Shoes? Kit? What about when that same person has to go to work first? Suddenly space becomes a premium! Find out what I consider to be the “essentials” in my new video.
We all have a favourite hot drink, right? One that we can turn to for a reliable source of comfort on those days where the wind whips through your jacket, rain lashes your hair to your forehead and your hands are like little blocks of numbness attached to your arms. Enough of English weather (in August, I would like to point out)… this is my homemade vegan mocha latte.
Despite my long-standing, well-known love of porridge for breakfast, I have a confession. I really like another kind of breakfast food. Pancakes. Pancake Sunday is a beloved, solo tradition. Solo because… well because my OH likes to sleep in, and my rumbly stomach gets me up before he is ready to roll out of bed.
Flapjacks – so easy to make, but so rare to find in my house. Generally speaking, when I want something baked and chocolatey, I’ll make some kind of chocolate muffin or cupcake. But, I feel like I’ve done a lot of that lately and this time, I wanted something with the ease and convenience of a tray bake.
Do you ever have those days where you start with something rich at breakfast, end up with something very luscious as a snack, and continue that theme on through lunch? By dinner time you’re kind of hungry, but also kind of aware that really, you don’t need a lot. That happens to me pretty often, especially at the weekend! What to do those days? Well, how about some gluten free, low carb fajitas?
