Trying vegetarianism

Hi everyone,

A shorter but slightly more personal post from me today.  A few weeks ago I watched the Food Choices documentary on Netflix.  They say:

“This documentary follows filmmaker Michal Siewierski as he explores the impact that food choice has on people’s health, the health of our planet and on the lives of other species sharing our world. It looks at many misconceptions about food and diet, offering a new view on these issues. The film interviews world-renowned experts, including Dr. T Colin Campbell, Dr. Richard Oppenlander, Rich Roll, Joe Cross, Dr. John McDougall, Capitan Paul Watson, Dr. Toni Bark, Dr. Pam Popper, Dr. Michael Greger, Gloria Athanis, and several others. You will never look at your plate in the same way again.”

October non-foodie favourites

Hi everyone,

Can you believe we are in to the first week of November already?  Autumn is my favourite season of the year by far and I’ve been loving watching how London is changing as the year marches on.  Although I’m a winter baby (my birthday being at the start of December) I love that Autumn is when you can start to really snuggle down with big jumpers, hot water bottles and big bowls of porridge in the mornings.

With the end of another month comes another set of non-foodie favourites.  This month I’ve been hunkering down and studying more than before as I’m coming to the end of the Science Access Course (five weeks left!  Eek!) and the reading has stepped up slightly so my time away from the academic books has been spent really trying to immerse myself in the things I enjoy to give my brain a break. 

OK, here we go…

Quick and easy make ahead breakfasts

When I wake up in the morning one of the first things I think about is what to eat.  Which is great if it’s a weekend because I have the time to make something delicious like breakfast burritos, pancakes or French toast and omelettes.  I’ve even been known to have multiple courses (croissants then toast followed by a fry up since you ask) but during the week I simply don’t have time for all that.

Most weekdays I roughly leave myself 30 minutes between my alarm going off and getting out the door to drive to the train station.  This is easily done as my clothes are sorted the night before, my work bag is packed and my food is in the fridge ready to go.

But being quick doesn’t mean I want to compromise on taste or flavour. I want the best of both worlds – and don’t even think about suggesting those instant oat sachets that are stuffed with sugar and other nasties.  They give the illusion of being quick and easy but in reality, they’re junky and you could cook regular oats in the same time (eye roll).

The good news is that there lots of different breakfast options you can make in advance which will take you minimal preparation time, taste amazing and you can simply grab and go during the week.
