Finally toast the breads, open out and fill as follows:
First place some strips of pepper in the bread, followed by some of the avocado houmous. Now add 2 or 3 sweet potato bites, some of the tomato salad and finally top with some yoghurt dressing. Serve
Some mornings I really crave cereal and this definitely meets my cereal expectations! Most cereals have a bunch of sugar and unnecessary additives in them. This cereal has none of that bad stuff and all of the good stuff! Some ingredients are bananas, alkalizing greens (spirulina, chlorella, spinach & dandelion) and a blend of prebiotics! ➡️ @livingintentions Activated Superfood Cereal⬅️ with blueberries and added chia seeds and unsweetened almond milk🥣
Hearty lunch today as the weather makes me crave hot, filling, comforting food. Left-over (defrosted) home-made hummus, roasted sweet pot and aubergines (also left-over from Sat cooking bonanza), soft-boiled egg and falafels from @openhousedeli stall. A weekly prep really makes my life easy, during the week I simply mix ingredients and usually add fresh portion or protein, such as eggs, fish, beans or beef and a meal can be assembled in less than 30min.

Here is that #recipe I promised for these delicious #raw#vegan Rainbow Spring Rolls
8 Rice Wrappers
1/2 Cup of Raw Carrots, cut matchstick
1/2 Cup of Raw Red Beet, cut matchstick
1/2 Cup of Raw Yellow Beet, cut matchstick
1/2 Cup of Raw Cucumber, cut matchstick
1/2 Cup of Raw Red Bell Pepper, cut matchstick
1/2 Cup of Raw Pea Sprouts or Sunflower Sprouts
1/2 Raw Avocado, sliced thin
Almond Butter Sauce
Ingredients // 4 tsp of Almond Butter
1 tsp of Tamari
1/2 tsp of Honey
2 tsp of Water (add more if necessary)
Optional: Add Red Pepper Flakes or Hot Sauce for a little kick
Directions // Fill a large shallow bowl or plate with warm water. Dip rice wrapper in water until it softens. Then lay rice paper on cutting board flat. To assemble, look at the circular rice paper roll and divide it into half, in the bottom half closest to you add your selection of fresh ingredients. You don’t have to use all the ingredients listed, but select at least 4 so that the roll is full enough without over stuffing. Take a pinch of each and lay them down on top of one another, start small until you get the hang of it. Next, fold the lip of circular rice paper wrapper over your ingredients, as if you were rolling a burrito. Then fold in the sides over the lip and continue rolling until your ingredients are completely enclosed inside your rice wrapper roll. Now repeat 7 more times! (Note: This dish is best made and served fresh, but if you are making it ahead cover with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator. They will stick together so place plastic wrap between each roll to avoid rolls sticking.) Before service cut summer rolls on the diagonal and set on plate with dipping sauce.
Sauce Direction //
In a small bowl mix together ingredients and serve with summer rolls. Adjust for desired sweetness and saltiness level using honey and tamari sauce.
Giovedì che sanno di lunedì, ma oggi si lavora da casa, quindi va bene lo stesso 😍 dato che oggi ho i carboidrati sotto i tacchi 😂 non ho cucinato moltissimo, per cui vi lascio la mia cena di ieri (giornata di ricarica 💖) fatta con porridge salato di avena, con tonno al naturale e agretti sbollentati 🌱 condito con olio evo, sale e pepe 💛
I used to rush out of the house, daily, without breakfast.
Nearly an hour commute and stopping to have the typical American breakfast - donut + coffee at the Circle K. 🍩 ☕
Then, I was left with the mid morning crash, no energy and could barely fit into my fat pants!
No more of that nonsense!
Low calorie smoothie bowls to rescue! Now, breakfast is my favorite meal of the day!!
I know the week isn’t over yet but I’m already daydreaming about weekend breakfast! What’s your favorite weekend breakfast?! I love making pancakes when I have extra time to kill.

Sweaty Mess🙅🏻♀️ Today was a mental Thursday, been super tired all week and had the worst leg doms today and a lesson observation. Running was on the agenda and I had no motivation but I went and picked up my free gift box from @fitnessfest.sg (thanks guys it’s awesome!) and decided to just shove on my new tshirt and embrace it. 10km of hill sprints, running and stair sprints later and I was a sweaty mess but feeling good. I also made an amazing Thai red curry so a victory of an evening 💪🏽
Mobility has been a game changer for my recovery after workouts.
A foam roller, lacrosse ball and softball. Simple yet so effective in rolling out sore muscles and allowing my body to recover and be able to move again the next day.
What are your favorite active recovery, flexibility and mobility tools?
PS Exercise is also something we talk about in the Whole30 Made Easy Program!

Bowl No 172 in my #365healthybowls challenge. Follow me on @plantbased2go and the hashtag above to keep tags on my progress and find some inspiration for your next meal. Wednesday night dinners are always a little more challenging as it’s relay dinner night for the family with everyone arriving home at different times. I always need to prepare something that can be cooked in advance but will still taste good a few hours later. This butter bean curry and rice bowl worked extremely well. Served with some steamed broccoli and some freshly picked coriander.
Here’s the recipe if you’d like to give it a try:
2 onions, chopped
400g tomatoes, chopped
2 tsp black mustard seeds
2 tsp cumin seeds
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1 tbsp raw ginger, grated
1-2 tsp chilli powder, to taste
2 tsp ground coriander
1 tsp turmeric
2 x 500g cooked butter beans
Fresh coriander, chopped
1 Dry fry the onion gently for 10 minutes, until softened. Add the tomatoes and cook for a further 10 minutes or until soft.
2 In another, small saucepan, heat the the black mustard and cumin seeds, stir for a few seconds over the heat until they sizzle and jump about, then add the crushed garlic, grated ginger, chilli powder, ground coriander and turmeric. Stir over the heat for 2-3 minutes, then add to the onion and tomato mixture in the large pan.
3 Add the cooked butter beans to the pan, along with the water and cook over a gentle heat until piping hot. Add salt to taste, then scatter with chopped fresh coriander and serve with steamed broccoli and brown rice.
