So, whilst day one was pretty breezy, yesterday not so much so. I was feeling tired and obstinately wanting things which were off the menu. I obviously wanted to blame the tiredness on the veganism but truth be told I just hadn’t slept so great the past couple of nights and it was catching up on me.
I will give myself credit however, for not accepting the most beautiful looking cappuccino…ever – I desperately wanted to just pretend it was vegan (it wasn’t!) and drink it anyway, but refrained and had an americano instead which was just as good. Cappuccinos are not the coffee be all and end all I am discovering!
Friday evening I made a delicious tofu and veggie jalfrezi curry – I’d love to share the recipe but to be honest I just kind of made up as I went along! More or less though it had: tofu, 1 clove of garlic, 1 yellow pepper, half a courgette, mushrooms, a carrot, a tin of tomatoes, jalfrezi paste (you need to put in the amount that suits your taste buds!) and a dash of balsamic vinegar. I think I added some water in there too as it got a bit thick. I had it on basmati rice with fresh coriander on top and it definitely hit the spot!
I ended up with three portions so heated up one of those last night when I got back from teaching all afternoon and was too tired to get my culinary creative on. I added a handful of spinach in there too and had with quinoa this time. Really do love quinoa….I would eat it every day if I could!
Not sure what’s on the agenda tonight – maybe the stew I spied a recipe for on the Camyoga FB page the other day. I’m looking forward to whatever storm I manage to cook up and rest assured I will post a photo of the results on my Instagram later!
