Flowers, flowers and more flowers.

I love taking pictures of flowers, do you?

Here are some of the latest flowers and plants in my household. Everything from Lavendula, peppermint, beetroot, cherry tomatoes, onions, basil and some peonies and blue roses (I was so impressed with the blue roses, but slightly saddened when I realised they were only blue due to ink. They were once white roses now blue…) Enjoy the collection ­čÖé . Do you take photos of your garden, urban garden or flowers? Let me know! O.N xx

Day 3 – Sunshine and hummus.

Hummus

Hummus

Starting the day outside eating breakfast is one of my favourite things to do (it always makes me feel like I’m on holiday). Thankfully, I had some left over banana and blueberry pancakes (see ‘Day 1’ post) which I quickly threw together so I could enjoy the sunny morning outside. I really enjoyed my first challenge on Saturday,┬áso I started to think ‘what should I make next?’. So, I┬ádecided that today was the day that I was going to make some home-made hummus (for the very first time). My boyfriend and I love the stuff, so it makes complete sense that I learn how to make it…

It was so easy. I’m not sure I will ever buy shop bought hummus ever again. I enjoyed making it (although I have made what was a ‘clean kitchen’ into something quite the opposite) so I’m sharing with you the photos. Just so that you can see how yummy it looks!

I’m off to eat it outside in the sunshine, enjoy your bank holiday Monday!

Day 1 – “The Project”

Vegan_homegrown_project-2

Welcome to my first ever blog post!
Today as part of my ‘better food decisions’ project, I thought I’d make banana pancakes.

I love food and I’ve always aspired to my Mother’s completely British and wonderful cooking. But recently, I’ve been more aware of what I eat and how it affects my body. I’m not inventing / creating any recipes, but rather finding them online and documenting my progress. I love photography and this helps me learn and better my skills behind the camera too. Today I made awesome banana and blueberry pancakes from the Deliciouslly Ella blog and they were amazing!

In case you weren’t sure, of you haven’t heard of Ella’s blog, it’s essentially a vegan (brilliant) website that I use probably on a daily basis. I thoroughly suggest making them yourself, so I’ve included the link to her recipe for you: (http://deliciouslyella.co.uk/tag/vegan-banana-pancakes-gluten-free/).
