Healthy Vegan Friday #32 Banoffee Pie, Quinoa Sushi and Nutella Brownie Parfait

FREE Smoothies For Weight Loss Bundle

Hi there!  I hope you’ve had a great week.  After having a hard week with my toddler, I was relieved when my husband told me he’d quite like to take her to stay with his parents for a weekend.  As I’m quite heavily pregnant now I’m not too keen on travelling, so we thought it was a perfect opportunity for me to have a lovely break on my own, and for my husband to spend some quality time with our daughter.  I’ve only ever been away from her for 2 hours since she was born 19 months ago and I’m already missing her like crazy.  I am really enjoying the quiet, just to be able to eat my lunch uninterrupted and have some ‘me’ time.  So I’m off to get my long dark hair cut short and dyed.  It’s nice to be able to do something for myself for a change.

I haven’t been doing as much meal preparation this last week as I normally like to do as my toddler has worn me out.  I did manage to make this Eat To Live Bolognese which was absolutely gorgeous and stocked up my freezer very well for the next week.  I’ve also been carrying on with my bread experiments.  I made a very complex whole wheat bread and had awful pregnancy heart burn all night.  I’ve come to the conclusion it was the commercial yeast that was the culprit.  So it’s back to the drawing board to find a good recipe that doesn’t include yeast, and is pre-soaked overnight.

For those of you who don’t know, Healthy Vegan Fridays is a weekly blog hop hosted by myself, Carrie @ Carrie on Vegan, and Gabby @ The Veggie Nook.  It is a place to share your healthy vegan recipes that make use of whole ingredients and minimize the use of processed and refined foods. The recipes shared on this link up are intended to emphasis the beauty, creativity and benefits of a healthy, plant-based diet!
