Born to be a lazy Vegan

Well I still have the sniffles but they are slowly getting better. However since I can't taste anything with this plugged up nose I haven't been too inspired in the kitchen. Last night we had Amy's California Veggie burgers and sweet potato home fries - I took a photo but honestly the meal was so plain it wasn't worth posting. So I'm taking the weekend off to get better once and for all. More news and photos to come nest week!

Cheers everybody and have a great weekend!

Down with the Sniffles

As so often happens everyone in my house was sick this past week with a bad cold except me, the momma bird. So I ran around all week looking after a sick husband and 2 sick kidlets. And now that they are all better, I'M SICK! Of course after being up all night for 5 nights in a row taking care of coughs and runny noses it was bound to happen. So today I pampered myself a bit by making some of my favourites.

First up oatmeal with blueberries, raspberries, sliced bananas and agave nectar. I'm sorry the pictures are so blurry...I'm having camera problems on top of everything else! Back to the oatmeal, when I was a kid my mom made me oatmeal all the time and I hated it. She always made the 5 min, quick cooking type. I wanted to like it, I knew it was good for me but it was always a chore to eat it (sorry mom!). But no longer because I have discovered the ferrari of all oatmeals..steel cut oatmeal! So this morning I made myself a big bowl of organic steel cut oatmeal topped with blueberries, raspberries, sliced bananas and agave nectar. Every bite was heaven!


For lunch I was pretty pressed for time so it was a quick sandwich. Guacamole, tomatoes, and broccoli sprouts  on toasted multigrain...yummy!



And for dinner what could be better for a case of the sniffled than ED&BV Sniffle Soup. I felt better with each bite (the photo doesn't do it justice, sorry Dreena!)



Time for this girl to head to bed. Hopefully some extra sleep will rid of these sniffles quick, I have lots of cooking to do!

Cheers everybody!
