A P P L E S • These freshly picked guys are coming along nicely and have just come off the tree at the end of our garden. It’s that time of year... exciting on the one hand but on the other hand, not sure that I’m ready for autumn as yet... 🍂 •

G R E E N • juice and leaves: a delicious lunch at new joint @spiltmilkfoodbar in Carshalton 💚 Green juice full of spinach, apple, kale, cucumber and lemon, and the salad was leaves with sundried tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, chickpeas, a chilli sauce and halloumi. So good! And so lovely to have another good brunch spot opening near us 🌱 •

G O L D E N • cherry tomatoes! These guys were a surprise as we were sure the plant was a more usual red cherry tomato plant, but they came out this gorgeous colour instead. Still taste just as good, mind 🍅🌱 •

V E G A N • chocolate & banana protein bread. So delicious that you’ll want to try this even if you’re not vegan and a great source of protein if you are 🌱 The key is to use super ripe bananas, and a dash of cinnamon and nutmeg. Spread on some of your chosen vegan spread (or a blob of butter for non vegans) and enjoy. Full recipe to follow on our slightlypeckish.co.uk very soon... •

P O T A T O E S • The first of the crop from the allotment is ready to eat 🥔 There’s something very satisfying about *real* potatoes like these - covered in earth, imperfectly shaped. They taste incredible too, of course: so much flavour compared to shop-bought ❤️ •

O A T S • My favourite way to start the day: I might be a British cliché, but I challenge you to find something more satisfying than porridge oats made with skimmed milk and served with a squeeze of honey, sunflower seeds and berries. These were shop-bought, but it’s perfectly possible (and lovely) to use seasonal locally grown ingredients instead, and we often do! 🌻 🐝 🍓 •

D H A L • One of the tastiest bowls you could eat (even if not the prettiest), vegan lentil-based dhal is a real staple in our house - seriously, I think we have one on the go most of the time. It’s easy to knock up: the trick is to make up the lentil mix (lentils, ginger, bay, cinnamon) separate to the sauce-like mix (onions, tomatoes, garlic, turmeric, cumin, garam marsala, chilli flakes, and whatever else you fancy chucking in of that ilk, brought to the boil then simmered) and then stir together at the end. Serve up with rice or naan and voila. The best! •

A slightly messy but delicious, nutritious burrito bowl. Brown rice on the bottom, and then scattered on top: (1) chicken, peppers and red onions in a spicy fajita seasoning with lime juice; (2) red onion, black bean and tomato salsa with lime juice; and (3) corn on the cob. So filling and very good for you 💪 •

Dreamy salad bowl: peas, broad beans, broccoli, rocket, tomatoes, jersey royals and a grilled chicken breast. Plus a green juice. Perfect for summer @thelightermankx 😍

Postpartum breakfast is this bowl of deliciousness every day: porridge made with skimmed milk, a squeeze of honey, strawberries, banana and sunflower seeds for a protein boost. It sets me up for the day and keeps me full for a good few hours. And, you know, I see a lot of posts on here about “healthy” breakfast bowls and such, and they seem to have about 100 calories in them. Guys, let me tell you, if you’re looking after a baby who’s a few months old, you need energy, and fat free yoghurt and a banana ain’t gonna cut it (I’ve tried). Porridge is the way forward for me. Plus, this morning’s strawberries are super delicious British homegrown ones from @woodcotegreengardencentre and they are THE BEST ❤️ •

Postpartum health kick starts here... After a pregnancy and 12 weeks post labour filled with, to be honest, whatever food I fancied, with the end of the “fourth trimester” it’s time to start eating well. Tonight’s dinner: grilled salmon on a bed of green lentils with broccoli, peas, parsley and lemon 😍 •
