Breakfast with milled linseed

A day working at home. I felt anxious today and relished eating my healthy snacks and food as usually (pre-vegan days), I would just eat uncontrollably at my computer when I felt stressed – no thought for what I was eating or how much….and never actually tasting the sweets or chocolates or biscuits I was bingeing on!

Eating healthy vegan options has made me far more mindful of what I am cooking and eating which definitely supports a calmer and happier mind.

This is what I have eaten today being at home –



Mid – morning I made some ‘oat cookies’:

  • Oat cookies made with 1 cup rolled oats, 2 mashed bananas, 40g 85% Lindt chocolate chopped in small pieces, some amarinth seeds (from Holland and Barrett) – cooked at 180C for 15 minutes in tsp sized shapes – bitter chocolate but delicious!
  • Cup of earl grey tea and soya milk
  • 1 peach

Lunch sitting in the sun:

  • Large salad with lettuce, tomato, rocket, malt vinegar, 1 avocado, seeds and olive oil
  • Blueberries

Mid afternoon snack:

  • 1 apple
  • Cup redbush caramel tea and soya milk
  • Bowl of Tesco popcorn


  • Veggie mince leftover with tomato mixed into basmati rice, tofu and cherry tomatoes – really tasty
  • Basmati rice
  • Coconut yoghurt
  • 1 passion fruit
  • 2 squares Lindt 85% dark chocolate
  • Cup mint tea and fell asleep in front of TV!
