Weeks are flying by!! Cant believe its June next week!
Anyway, I whipped up some fried rice the other day! Made 4 portions and froze 3 of them. Yes you CAN freeze stir fried rice😆
I’ve used microwave rice and also a bag och pre chopped stir fry veggies for this as it saves so much time! Plus the bag of veg was reduced 😉
2 bags microwave rice. I used uncle Ben’s 5 whole grains.
600g chopped veg. What ever you like or just buy pre chopped. I got a bag from sainsbury’s.
2 tbsp soy sauce
3 tbsp sweet chilli
2 garlic cloves
Salt and pepper to taste
Extra chili flakes if you want it extra hot
Simply fry the veg in oil until softened. Using a garlic crusher add the garlic and add soy sauce, sweet chilli, salt, pepper and some chili flakes. Fry a bit longer then add the rice (no need to microwave the rice as it will cook in the wok), fry for a few minutes. Done! Super easy and really yummy!
I have not been very good at updating the blog with any new recipes.. But it’s been so busy lately with the move. Haven’t really been cooking!
Jack is still working on the flat in Bournemouth so me and Winter aren’t fully moved in yet. However, we took the train down on Wednesday to stat with him for 2 nights! No shower has been installed yet so we had to go a bit grimey for the 2 days but it was absolutely fine! So good to see the place again and Jack’s doing such a good job! Cant wait to move in!
During our stay we got takeaway both nights! First from a place called Chicken and Blues. I had their BBQ jackfruit wrap and sweet potato fries, both were really good!!! Def getting it again👍
Looks a bit messy but was yummy! No pics of the fries but they were really good!!
Also got food from Wagamama. I had the steamed buns with panko aubergine and mushrooms for starter and vegan pad thai for main. The buns were soooooo good!! Wish I’d gotten more Haha and the pad thai was average at best, needed salt desperately and there was no peanuts!! Think I’ll get something else next time!
You think living in London we would be spoilt for choice when it comes to takeaways but where we lived (Barnet) the options were very limited, especially as a vegan! In Boscombe where we will be living there are so many places that do vegan food and the takeaway options are great!! Saturday takeaway night is finally gonna be exciting! Usually Jack would just get takeaway and I’d cook something for myself cause the options were so crap Haha
Hello, I have been offline for a few days. Between having the flu and moving flats I have just been so stressed. Social media was not a priority Haha
However, I feel so much better and today we went down to visit Jack in Bournemouth! Me and Winter are staying with the in laws while Jack gets the flat ready so he spends most days down there on his own! We miss him so much. But today we finally got to visit him! And the sun was out, it was t-shirt weather! So lovely! We walked to the beachfront and had lunch at a place called The Wood Oven. I can highly recommend their vegan pizza!! Generous amount of tasty vegan cheese and a nice base! Cant wait to go back!
Winter’s first trip to the seaside and what will be her new home soon! So flipping cute in her lil sun hat!!❤❤
Such a great day!! Sad to be leaving Jack and to be heading back to London.. But we’ll be back soon😊
I also scoffed this vegan brownie! So yummy but wow was it rich! Still feel full from it Haha So many vegan options everywhere down there!!
Can not believe that that on Sunday we’ll be locking up this place for the last time! Unless we decide to move back in a few years of course😉 I still feel like sh*t, definitely got the flu. Fever is finally gone but got a bad cough, aches and the energy level are nonexistent..
I am so excited to move to Bournemouth and be living by the sea side. I’m so happy that Winter will be growing up in a beautiful place with nature on the doorstep! I don’t mean to hate on London, we have had some great times here but it’s not the place I want to raise my child.
Anyhow, trying to use up the last bits in the freezer and had these 2 yummy meals this week. They’ve been sitting in the freezer for a while! Cant wait to be settled in to our new flat, do a massive food shop and start cooking again.
Recipe for my Harissa Chickpeas, carrot and kidney beans here!
Before going vegan my favourite chocolate bar was Snickers so when I read a comment regarding the Eat Vive peanut bar tasting like Snickers I was like “oh lord I need to get some of these bars!!!!”
Eat Vive are doing a special at the moment where you can buy 12 bars for £12! Usually its 12 for £16. You get 4 each of salted caramel, hazelnut and peanut.
For some reason I was only charged £10.71 at the checkout. Not sure why but hey win for me!
These are protein bars made without artificial ingredients. They are vegan, gluten free and each bar packs 10grams of protein!
I didn’t really buy them for the protein though Haha I just wanted some chocolate bars!😜
So here we go!
Salted Caramel 6/10
This is my least favourite. Doesn’t really taste much of salted caramel and wish they’d put a bit more of the crunchy bits in! Bit sickly sweet.
I love hazelnut and chocolate together, just wish there would have been more chunky bits of nut in this bar. But I did enjoy it!
This was my fave! But it’s no way near the taste of a Snickers bar!! Again I wish there were more chunky bits of peanuts! If you’re looking for a vegan Snickers like me, keep looking 😉
I have been quite generous on the scoring because these bars are not supposed to be just a normal chocolate bar, they are protein bars after all and they are really tasty as far as protein bars go! They don’t taste gritty or artificially sweet.
Would I buy again? Probably not.. But was nice to try something new!
