I got up early today and got my 50 minute yoga in its defo helping the old back : )

So onto the days food. I had the best breaky today. I had my usual porridge, chopped apple, maca, cinnamon and almond butter and topped the lot with........

choco cherry pie granola! I picked up some samples from the vitality show and am very glad I did. Bear granola definitely gets the thumbs up from me!

Yummy! It was a real tummy filler and sorted me for my driving lesson. More parking today
which went ok nearly got the hang of it! After my lesson I grabbed my stuff for work and walked in which was lovely, the bright sunshine rolling across my skin glorious!

Morning snack was 1/2 this granola bar

Crunchy : )

I had quinoa, mushrooms, peas and soya beans in a red pesto sauce

and the other 1/2 of my granola bar

after work my papa picked me up so we could go for a drive, I did about 35 miles which was good
still a bit timid but practice makes perfect ay!
beef with beansprouts in tomato and basil sauce with steamed veggies and a dollop of hummus

followed by the best pud! Ground rice with carob, raisins, topped with soya yogurt and a little tahini and.........

Choco Cherry Granola! Yep I used the left overs from this morning : )

Don't forget to enter my giveaway if you haven't already!


Whats your favorite granola?

I've only just started eating oats again so I have a lot of catching up to do, I'm loving it though!

Do you buy your sprouts or grow your own?

I buy cause its easy! Yep I guess I'm just lazy, my dad grows his and said its so easy why don't I do the same? This was while I was looking at a large bag of sprouts for 49p, you
know what road I took the easy road!


  1. Those Nature Valley granola bars have been my favorite since high school. I like to eat them broken up into pieces with yogurt and some fruit too. And plain is pretty awesome as well ;)

  2. Ohhh, I LOVE me some granola! My new favorite is Galaxy Granola. They sent me some samples a few weeks ago and I instantly fell in love. I've also been known to take Kashi granola bars and crumble them up into yogurt/oatmeal. That's a great way to get granola taste and crunch, but there's instant portion control.

  3. I have never sprouted in my life... that is the one thing i really should learn, but just havent bothered to do...

    the carob ground rice pud. nice!!!!!!!

  4. Your eats look fantastic as usual.
    I love granola too and prefer my homemade hemp-nola (of ED&BV) it's so freaking good!!
    Sprouts are so much fun, I grow my own but sometimes also buy them if I'm craving them like crazy and have none at home.

  5. Hey, I'm a new reader! Your food looks lush, it's nice to see someone else who enjoys natural foods :-)
