Will winter ever end? Butternut squash, leek and thyme risotto.

Here in the UK winter is dragging on, with cold, grey weather and snow lying un-melted on the ground. In an attempt to keep things warm and cheerful I made this earlier today for my family.

Breakfast:  Fruity tea.  2 slices Biona rye bread with omega 3.  1 slice spread with dark, creamed tahini.  1 slice with nori strips and spread with tangy tomato tofu paste.  A fresh kiwi fruit.  5 dates.

Lunch: Leftovers from the day before – roast parsnip, butternut squash, broccoli and cauliflower with beluga lentils.  A large handful of raisins. 500ml ‘FruitHit’ fairtrade orange juice.

Evening:  Bowl of museli with soya milk, herbal tea.  Wasn’t feeling hungry, or like having a big cooking session so just had this and got an early night.  Slept like a lamb for about 9 hours.

Friday 15th February

Breakfast: a banana, an apple, some black tea

Lunch: a baked potato, tomatoes, lettuce, cucumber, peppers, beetroot.  Fruit: watermelon, pineapple, red grapes.  A handful of mixed nuts.  A mug of almond milk.

Dinner: Boiled rice, toasted hazelnuts, asparagus, spinach and mange tout (steamed), with a peanut sauce, followed by an Alpro soya dessert.

Saturday 16th February

Breakfast: granary toast with marmite and houmous, a kiwi fruit, tea with soya milk

Munched and nibbled during road trip:  a banana, an Alpro soya dessert, peanuts, raw mange tout peas, houmous

Mid-afternoon: a soya latte from a coffee shop

Dinner: Chinese takeaway: plain rice, tofu and vegetables in black bean sauce

Herbal tea

Sunday 17th February

Breakfast: oatmeal with banana, kiwi, sunflower seeds, jam, milled linseed, a slice of granary toast with marmite, tea with soya milk

Mid-morning: black tea, 2 slices of Valerie’s homemade Lenten Cake (a scrumptious cake made with oil and orange juice)

Lunch: large plateful of oven roasted veg (butternut squash, potoatoes, parsnips, broccoli, cauliflower) with beluga lentils and steamed spinach, followed by tinned fruit salad, lychees and an Alpro soya dessert – caramel flavour (have nearly worked through all the flavours now…. dark chocolate definitely the best in my opinion)

Snacks: rather too much ‘Oatly’ chocolate flavoured oat milk, 2 x ‘Nak’d’ raw cherry bars.  (Oh dear…  Got a bit carried away with the Vegan snacks after an impromptu trip to a large supermarket…)

I’d eaten so much today and was feeling really full so I didn’t have any dinner in the evening.

What an abundance!
