No your eyes do not deceive you this is indeed another post from me, two days in a row, score! I have a little time today so thought I would use it wisely and show you some of the foods I have been enjoying lately, all sugar free, wholesome and delicious. As I have mentioned before I try to eat well even if I am busy and having to go sugar free also presents its own challenges basically I have to make everything from scratch and be prepared! Lucky for me I really enjoy cooking savoury foods as well as sweet and these meals were all scrumptious!
Porridge is one of my favourite breakfasts and teaming oats with lacto free milk, almond butter and a pinch of salt is a great start to the day. I actually prefer it without and sugar and find it keeps me fuller for longer, no sugar highs or lows!
About a week ago I made this wonderful avocado, basil and garlic pasta dish which was awesome! I made the avocado sauce by blending 1.5 avocados, fresh basil, lemon juice, olive oil, salt and pepper and mixed through some gluten free spaghetti and veggies. Such a yummy meal that I will be making again I'm sure.
As you are all aware it was Shrove Tuesday last week which means pancakes and we celebrated in style. I love sweet pancakes but as that wasn't an option this year we went savoury by adding bacon, scrambled egg and avocado to our gluten free pancakes and man was it good. It reminded me how good pancakes are sweet or savoury and I plan on eating them a little more often!
Lastly is this cheap as chips chickpea dish that is super filling and easy to make. This was literally chickpeas, veggies some spices a little tomato puree and a dash of tamari all fried up in coconut oil and topped with a little lacto free cheese. Sometimes the simple dishes are the best : )
I love food as you well know and having to make everything yourself due to allergies or intolerances makes you a lot more experimental which I really enjoy, lucky really!
Did you make pancakes, what was your flavour combo?
