Veg Fry-Up

One meal that isn’t my fav is a full English (am I still English?) there’s just something about the grease that makes me feel like I’ve been put in a deep fat fryer after I’ve eaten it. But this is my alternative which I could eat alldayeverday and not even feel guilty about it. If you haven’t tried this or something similar I urge you to. Feel free to switch it up abit by adding toast, more veg, meat etc.

Green Super Smoothie
I think smoothies are genius. Technically abit gross, with everything blended up, but they taste ~amazing~. Keeping with the theme, spinach is involved.. obviously. These make you feel full whilst also getting a load of healthy foods. If we ever run out of spinach for some crazy reason, I can recommend using anything green- from raw broccoli to celery whatever you have, it does still taste good.

Eggs & Soldiers with Asparagus
Boiled eggs & soldiers just reminds me of my childhood, I must have had dippy eggs for breakfast most days. Adding asparagus just makes it even tastier and makes it feel like a more adult breakfast.

It’s Pancake day on Tuesday and today I spent the day making a stack of fluffy American pancakes- in order to perfect it for Tuesday. I’ll be totally honest pancakes aren’t my fav, they never have been really. Maybe it’s something to do with the word ‘cake’ being involved, but I do lovvvve making them- something v satisfying about the way they look. As well as listening to ‘Send Me On My Way’ – the Matilda pancake song (if you know, you know) whilst making them. There are endless options to top your pancakes… I went for a Nutella batch, a lemon batch and my personal fav ~berries & yoghurt~.
Happy Pancake Day!
(& let me know what topping you went for.)

Everyone’s guilty of feeding their dog a little human food now and again. I mean…common’ dog kibble looks sooo boring. Missie does have a range of different dog treats however, those puppy dog eyes always bribe us into giving her something with a little more flavour. I had a weird cooking splurge this weekend and ended up baking some sweet treats for my family. However, I felt guilty the little pup was left out so I decided to bake her batch of her very own!


Ingredients: (It’s all dog friendly)

1 cup plain flour
1/3 cup porridge oats
1 tsp baking soda
1 banana
1 large egg
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup honey
1 tsp pure vanilla extract

Ingredients.JPG

Frosting:
• 2 x Tubs cream cheese low fat
• Dog treats of your choice

Method:

-Pre heat your oven to 170 degrees Celsius, line cupcake tins with paper cases (remember to take these off before giving to your dog if you have a bit of a greedy pup).

-Mix all of the ingredients in a bowl and distribute evenly between the cupcake cases. Bake for 15 minutes and leave to cool before icing.

(They actually smelt and looked quite tasty)

-Using a spoon to dollop cream cheese on the cakes or as I did, use a disposable piping bag  I used a large star icing nozzle and piped in a circular motion. -I then popped a little puppy treat on top and enjoy!
