What you’ve got to love about the month of November is the fact that you’re suddenly appreciative of every hour of sunshine you get. This morning for instance when I woke up I could see the blue sky peaking through a thick layer of fog. By the time breakfast was ready however, it was dark and the fog was even heavier than before….but at least it was sunny yesterday, right?
A problem that comes with these dark days is that its making good food photography rather impossible. Usually when I take pictures of my food I try to do so while the sun is still out and take advantage of the natural light. The good thing: now I can take pictures every hour of the day because daylight seems to be a rare luxury these day.
The morning started off with a bowl of my superfood oatmeal which I topped off with some blueberries and blackberries that I had leftover from yesterdays breakfast. Other toppings included coconut flakes, granola and walnuts and almond flakes.
The real star of the day however was the Stir-Fry I had as a late lunch. Stir-Fries are one of the easiest things to whip up and there is an endless amount of ingredients you can add to it.
I added almost everything I could find in my fridge. Broccoli, carrots, bell pepper, cabbage, soba noodles, tofu and…prawns! YUMMY! Topped it off with some cashew nuts and a little bit of nut butter (the toppings are optional but believe me, nut butter makes everything better!)
To add some flavor to the prawns I marinaded them in some garlic-salt water. All you need to do is put the prawns into a bowl, add water (just enough to cover the prawns), add salt and crush in a couple of garlic cloves. Let it sit for a couple of hours and fry them just before serving.
Gotta go. This bowl of Greek Yoghurt is calling my name!
