My recent eatings...

As usual I have been eating lots of pasta and stir-fry meals in the past couple of weeks. They aren't very exciting but here are a few piccies:


Above is a stir-fry made with soya mince, mixed veggies and wholemeal spaghetti

Above is a vegan maccie cheese dish made with wholemeal animal pasta, nutritional yeast as well as carrots and broccoli for a nice bit of crunch and extra nutrients!


Above is a stir-fry made with soya chunks, spring greens and is served over some straight-to-wok noodles (egg free of course : )

Above is a pasta dish made with wholewheat penne, soya mince and loads of broccoli!


Above is a noodle dish made with udon noodles, a spicy tomato sauce and tofu.


I also went out for a meal at Nando's with a friend earlier this week (http://www.nandos.co.uk/index.cfm). Although this restaurant chain is known for it's chicken meals, it is possible to get a tasty vegan meal there. They do both 2 burgers (a bean one and a soya one) that are vegan if ordered without mayo. They add a spicy sauce to your burger and you can specify how hot you want it (I always go for extra hot). I enjoyed my burger with a side of chips (you can get healthier sides if you are so inclined but I definitely wanted chips! ; ) )

Here is my meal below:

In snacking news, I have recently tried the bar below as a snack and it was really tasty. It was like a vegan nutri-grain bar (an oaty bake surrounding a sweet blueberry filling). I bought it from Holland and Barrett (a health food shop chain here in the UK). I will definitely be eating this again soon!
I was also lucky enough to be treated to some vegan chocolate cheesecake. I went around to a friend's house recently and he had made some (yes a guy that not only bakes but does vegan baking!!!!)
