Todays Drink

Went with a mix of Spinach, Banana, Cucumber and bootea vanilla shake today all mixed with milk! More veg than fruit giving a healthy green colour and hopefully lessening the sugar content in the drink! The ingredients in the picture are exactly what went in to the nutribullet and then I just add milk, whatever amount appears appropriate! 



This am

The nicest smoothie this morning! 

A banana, handfull of blueberries, half a dozen leaves of spinach, a small amount of bootea vanilla shake and filled up with milk! Made a lovely creamy shake with a hint of vanilla! And it made enough for another glass with lunch! 

  Bottle of water first though ofcourse to kickstart your body!

For anyone out there who is Gluten-Free or mostly GF like me…I made the nicest Gluten-Free meal I have had tonight!

One serving of Tesco GF pasta

Small portion of Quorn Mince (frozen)

Half a red pepper

Tesco GF tomato and Herb sauce

Applewood cheese

(I never measure anything, just go with what looks good)

I just began cooking the mince (in the wok because I’m a student and have no pans) It takes 10-12 minutes, I usually cook it for 12 just to be safe

Mix in the sauce almost as soon as you start the mince, (you can cook the mince first if you wish, I prefer to do it all together)

then I put the pasta on (it’s quicker than the mince)

once both were ready I turned the heat down, chopped up some pepper (red is just my preference) and some chunks of Applewood cheese for a nice smokey flavour.  Then I threw these into the pan (wok) with the mince and sauce and mixed it all in, letting the cheese start to melt

Then drained the pasta and mixed it in too just to get it nicely covered in sauce.

Then served up, honestly this pasta sauce is the best gf thing i’ve tasted, it actually has a lot of flavour! I also like the added smokeyness of the applewood but if it’s not to your taste then regular cheese would work too, for some added gooeyness!

I was very impressed!!
