It's been a week of deliveries this week.
First there was the pasta that I talked about on the last post, then my sons Christmas presents arrived and are currently filling up Alan's hall space. Then yesterday my year's supply of Veg1 vitamins came via the postman. I buy mine from the Vegan Society, as I'm a member I get 10% off my order ... every little helps and all that!!
Not eating meat I do need to ensure that I have a good supply of B12 in my system, people that do eat meat have it because the animals that they eat are given the vitamins in their food. Sadly, most animals no longer get to graze outside enough to have it in their systems naturally as B12 comes from the bacteria found mostly in soil and untreated water.
Anyway, I now have enough to see me through another year and typing this has made me realise that I have yet to take todays tiny chewable tablet.
You can tell that the weather briefly went much cooler ... although it was 17.5 degrees here yesterday ... as I have once again started having porridge for breakfast most days. My favourite is with a banana sliced and cooked into it for the last couple of minutes. Having the banana in the porridge and thoroughly heated up, rather than just sliced cold onto the top is a real gamechanger.
Lunch on this particular day was a delicious hummus and salad bun, followed by a delicious dairy free chocolate bar.
Much too tasty for its own good!!
Tea was of course some pasta. This time cooked with broccoli and peas and then I stirred through a bit more of the hummus to form a delicious sauce with a dash of the pasta cooking water. Once in the bowl it was topped with some grated Violife.
I buy the blocks of Extra Mature and grate it myself. Ready grated cheese always has something added to keep it flowing separately, usually just cornflour, but I really don't like the taste of that in my cheese, so I just grate a whole block or two at a time and keep it in a lidded container in the fridge.
Sadly, when I went to The Vegan Kind online supermarket to pick up a photo of the chocolate bar, I came across THIS message ... wow, what a shock, and what a shame to lose them just as I was about to put in a Christmas order. There are so many companies really struggling at the moment.
Well, that was definitely not what I was going to post about when I sat down today, but sometimes you just have to go with the flow.
