Hello and Happy WIAW! Today I will be sharing Sunday’s eats with you all. I am back in England after two weeks at home and spent the weekend in London with my lovely sister Christina. We had another wonderful couple of days and I really didn’t want to come back to Uni because I just love London so much.
I know I don’t have to tell my foodie friends but for the rest of you: don’t be discouraged by the green color or ingredients. The smoothie tasted amazing and left me energized for the day. We had green juice the day before at Whole Foods and wanted to make our own version which included spinach, spirulina, parsley, cilantro, orange, kiwi and apple.
I made this berry oatmeal by combining oats, soy milk, strawberries, blueberries and chia seeds. One of the things I enjoy when using blueberries in oatmeal is that they pop during the cooking process, creating a beautifully colored light-purple breakfast. Topped off hazelnut butter and cherries!
After a lazy breakfast and spending the rest of the morning in front of the TV, I made my way to the train station since I knew I still had to do some grocery shopping and settling in before my lectures start. Before I even made it home I walked straight to Pret a Manger where I bought a lunch salad. I was starving and with absolutely no food in the fridge this superfood salad was a lifesaver!
Dessert was even better. I had been carrying around this little pot of raw blueberry cheesecake with me for the last 24 hours. Although the tube and train ride affected the appearance slightly, the taste was incredible. I am not afraid of trying raw or vegan food and enjoy exploring new dishes, but this little pot was out-of-this-world-good! Better than expected!!! The layers included an almond crust, the cheesecake (I believe this was made with almond milk and cashews) and blueberry topping.
I spent the rest of the afternoon grocery shopping, unpacking, blogging and catching up on blogs before preparing a dinner salad. I wasn’t really in the mood for a big home-cooked dinner so salad it was. I was also able to start using up some of the ingredients in the pantry.
The salad was topped with feta cheese, olives and chickpeas + a little bit of cheddar cheese. Because no meal is complete without dessert I had a cup of Greek yogurt with coconut and chia seeds + cherries about an hour later. Chamomile tea on the side!
I hope you have lovely WIAW!!!!
