Our meals in pictures
I know I often post the menu for the week, but I thought you might like to see some photos of our meals. I don't always photograph everything we eat, but here is a selection for those of you who might be interested. I'm always very happy to pass on recipes if you'd like them. I spend a lot of time trawling the internet for vegan or gluten free recipes I can adapt to suit our dietary requirements. Apologies for the standard of photography!
Stuffed red peppers, filled with a spicy pepper, chilli and rice stuffing, served with a big mixed green salad
Thai vegetable stir fry, served with rice
Sesame tofu with roasted root vegetables
Chai latte rice pudding with apricots and pistachios
Bean crumble with green salad
Roasted root vegetable salad with garlicky yoghurt dressing
Vegetable chilli with sadza (polenta). I served this with peanut butter cabbage (not photographed)
What I notice from this is just how much vegetable matter there is! I think we would certainly be hitting out 5 a day quota! Also, it's often red/brown/orange combination. I guess as we move into the warmer months, there will be a lot more green vegetables making an appearance!
Over the next week, I have planned:-
My vegan GF bake will be Carrot and Pecan Muffins.
This week's shop came to just over £69. Then for the last few days of the month I will try to make do with whatever we have in the cupboards and deepfreeze to keep within my budget!
