The extra space was filled with these pancakes- I made them with wholewheat flour and oat milk, and made a chocolate ganache. This was liberally spread on the pancakes and topped with Swedish Glace Raspberry Ripple and Chocolate, and black cherries. It was super yummy, but my tummy hurt all evening after. It wasn't anything in the food, I just ate too much. So today I went really light, just a little bit of oatmeal and an apple and a kiwi in the afternoon. I was pretty hungry when I got home, so chowed down some toast with homemade very lemony coriander hummus:)

I had intended to make brownies for dessert, but having leftover almond pulp earlier in the week I made flapjacks and didn't want to bake again- there isn't enough of us to chow it down! So I just whipped up some chocolate sauce and heated up some frozen cherries, and we had sundaes, with Swedish Glace chocolate and raspberry varieties and some dairy free "Whizzers" chocolate beans on top:) Not red, ok, but pink! Also a legitimate Valentine's colour- and chocolate is a must on V day, this was our second dose of the day!
We rounded off with a little glass of wine, which has become a really rare treat for us. We're both pretty stuffed and now I have to get back on the greens'n'grains straight and narrow. But it's fun to go mad every now and again!

Dinner: Staffordshire oatcakes with broccoli kale gratin and frijoles refritos

I got Alicia Silverstone's book this week, The Kind Life, in which she explains her macrobiotic-based vegan diet. I'm funny about two bits of the macrobiotic diet: nightshade veggie avoidance/limitation (maybe I don't know enough about them?) and minimal fruit consumption- I do love my fruit. Other than that, I think it's great, I'm a greens'n'grains girl. And a lot of the foods are japanese and I love japanese food, like soba, soy sauce, lotus root etc. I've been reading a lot about raw food and I like that too, but I just love whole grains, like brown rice and barley. I've realised that pasta, even the wholewheat, constipates me, but I'm ok with some noodles (like rice noodles or soba, which are buckwheat). I've also been trying to eat no bread, although I was thinking of starting sourdough again and making bread once a week. I think I'm going to try out a loose-based macro thing, greens'n'grains, miso for brekkie (tried this for the first time today with fresh ginger-yum), but keep eating as plenty of raw fruit, vegetables and nuts, and I am especially keen on the fruit-before-noon rule I have, with the odd exception for a porridge breakfast. But I just love a veggie ricey dinner. Here's some of the dinners I've had the last few days:
These are the toasted sunflower and pumpkin seeds I had on my pancake tonight:

The rice helped me tummy ok. Today was busy, I was hungry when I got home so I got some Dorset Cereals Simply Fruity Muesli with Hazelnut Almond Rice Milk before heading out to choir.
