When I was in high school and was still eating gluten and dairy, I used to always get carrot cake from the school canteen. Mostly on those days when I had that annoying free period right in the middle of the day - where you can't go to school later but can't leave early either. So annoying.
So to make myself get through this time of extreme boredom and study, I got myself carrot cake. Bad mel habit #34: eating when bored.
This is my new favourite. I know, I know, I've probably said that before but it is! It's perfect for special occasions because most of us either a) have a fussy friend who can't eat anything or b) are the fussy friend themselves. I come under category b) which annoys me because I don't like being fussy. I've had to learn the art of saying 'no' when offered delicious looking (chocolate) foods that I know will punish me later.
It's not like I don't eat gluten or dairy such to annoy people on a daily basis. Most people are the same with whatever food they avoid - usually there is a good reason and would love to be able to eat chocolate cheesecake and pizza. My reason: I eat gluten or dairy and don't feel so hot afterwards.
This is a potential new favourite - and get this: completely chocolate free. I didn't think is was possible to have a favourite food that does no contain chocolate. I did deliberate topping these salted caramel bars with chocolate, but thankfully decided against it. And with all this chocolate Valentine's Day stuff EVERYWHERE, it's like a holiday for your tastebuds. If they could go on holidays.
There are gazillions of chocolate avocado mousses out there, I know. But I wanted to make my own version, because I can - and someone who is reading this might not have tried a 'mousse' with avocado before, and they are definitely worth a try.
This is goodness in a bowl. Seriously, you're doing your body a favour if you have a bowl of this for lunch or dinner - just make sure you have some protein in the other meals. I usually make this as a lunch, as dinner usually has some sort of protein in it.
This is a great and easy way to get some vegies into my day and a bowl of this really fills me up. It's also great at to eat after having cake for breakfast...it's all about balance right?
It's about time I posted something savoury for a change. I've been posting so much sweet stuff lately. It's a reflection on what I prefer to eat...but I'm trying to change my habits.
Now there is two requirements I have for a salad - it must be hearty and it must have a good dressing. I usually avoid salads mainly because they don't fill me up. I like them as a side but for the main event, I usually find myself binging on something of the chocolate kind soon afterwards.
