Recipes, Whimsy, Music and Lifestyle Changes…

Welcome to this week’s edition of my weekly roundup of posts…Especially for you just in case you missed a few posts during this last week…it’s also the last day of the month and then we will be in March… the time just flies…

Let’s go and see what goodies I had for you last week…so snuggle up in your favourite corner with your favourite drink tea/coffee or hot chocolate although depending on where in the world you live it could be a glass of wine…Cheers!

Meatless Monday’s…is going well…personally I prefer either just vegetables as in a vegetable curry, I love anything mushroom-based, made with beans, I don’t mind lentils I am getting better at cooking them…practise makes perfect I guess…We all loved those pancakes with mushrooms and leeks and will definitely make them again…

Tuesday was National Banana Bread Day as well as National Dog Biscuit Day and while I think some of these days are just silly…I had so many bananas to use don’t they just all ripen at once and it gave me the opportunity to post about bananas and dogs always love a treat and a healthy recipe for your beloved pooch is good…

It was then over to Sally’s for her Turning back the clock series…I mean who doesn’t want to turn back the clock even just a few years is good…we both did agree though that shouting at the screen does relieve stress and it’s unlikely that we will stop that habit…lol

CarolCooks2…Week 2…in my Kitchen……Made from scratch…Fajita Mix…

I hope you are enjoying this series as some mixes and sauces are really so easy to make… you wonder why you haven’t made them before as they are always cheaper, no nasties …give you a quicker turnover of spices and larger quantities… so many reasons to make your own…

#Meatless Monday’s …week 7…Vegan French Toast and pancakes with mushrooms and leeks …

 

Why Meatless Mondays?…

Introducing more plant-based meals into your diet can help you maintain a healthy weight if you have some weight to lose then adding more plant-based meals has the benefit of removing foods from your diet which cause weight gain.

Plants are high in fibre…this means by introducing more plant-based recipes to your diet that the health of your gut improves so you are better able to absorb the nutrients from your food… you will be eating foods that support your immune system and reduce inflammation.

Fibre can lower cholesterol and stabilize blood sugar and it’s great for good bowel management…

How is introducing more plant-based meals going in your kitchen… Going well or meeting with some opposition?...

This week …it’s French Toast and Pancakes why French Toast because I am aware that some of my readers don’t eat eggs either because of allergies or because they are Vegan…I have two recipes for eggless French Toast one I have tried and the other I am hoping one of my vegan readers will try and let us know as it contains nutritional yeast which I don’t have or use …

French Toast (1)

  • ½ cup milk, regular or dairy-free
  • 1 tbsp corn starch…I used rice flour
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ¼ tsp cinnamon, optional
  • 2 slices thick white bread
  • 2 tbsp butter or vegan alternative, for grilling
  • ½ cup sliced strawberries
  • Maple syrup, for serving
  • Powdered sugar, optional

Let’s Cook!

 

The other recipe is one I came across on a lovely blog written by a lady called Mimi…Her recipe for pancakes with leeks and mushroom filling with cheese sounded delicious and it was…I made half the recipe as is the norm when I am trying a new recipe and all my testers loved it…
