Already day dreaming about your Thanksgiving Day menu? And maybe considering switching things up a bit this year?
If so, might I suggest replacing the mashed sweet potatoes or candied yams with ✨Roasted Butternut Squash✨?! It has a very similar creamy texture and slightly sweet taste, but has fewer calories per serving and lower carb and sugar counts, too. Butternut Squash is also rich in calcium, magnesium, potassium, and vitamins B6, E and C. Plus, it’s a dish that you can make ahead and flavor any way you like! Think 🤔 ghee & cinnamon or ghee & curry powder!

So even though we’re closed on Mondays, we’re constantly thinking about donuts- and we’re suuuppppper excited to reveal to you all what we have in the works for Halloween this year. Let’s just say you should probably mark your calendars for something special on October 29th (yea, a MONDAY!) the 30th, & the 31st 👻 🎃 In the meantime, here’s a photo of our Guava + Cheese donut, hah! #staytuned#moreinfosoon#thesaltydonut 📷: @dmargherite
🔝 how to fight off the cold 101. Spicy Hometown Chili noodles and our piping hot dumplings. Yes, we make our own garlic chili oil, and yes, these noodles are spicy. Tag a friend who can handle heat. 📸: @sitdownandeat
Ahhhh…the King of Surf and Turf has returned and was very satisfied with this filet mignon with roasted bone marrow, pickled veggies & shallot jam and a lobster tail.😋🍴👅💦🥩🦐🍖🥃

Jus a lil charred 😝🍕 Trying out this new @traderjoes BUTTERNUT SQUASH PIZZA CRUST. I feel like it would be perfect for something fancy like ricotta, figs, and a drizzle of honey... but alas, I am a girl of simple means (aka all I had was tomato sauce, cheese, and chicken in my fridge so I worked with it). It was super yummy, and pretty thick so it held up really well under my mountain of cheese! 8.5/10 I highly recommend it for the fall. 😊
My food diary (part ll)
Hearing way too often that eating healthy requires a lot of time, in my last post I shared what I eat for breakfast and mid-morning snacks on a tight schedule, to prove that it takes as long as eating anything else! 🕒
Today I’ll share what my usual lunches look like.
Because I’m back at uni, I’m back to the packed lunches life. Yes, it takes me 10 extra minutes in the mornings, but I save those 10 minutes x 2 because I don’t have to walk somewhere to buy food and back. Not to mention that what I would find would be nowhere as delicious and nutritious as my own meals 😜
As you may already know, I’m a total sucker for smoothies, as they’re such a convenient way to get lots of nutrients in. Although smoothies are not really a lunch meal, I make mine in a way so that they keep me full for long and fill me up (sometimes even too much). Besides protein and plant milk, I add lots of fat sources, like hemp seeds, nuts (particularly into macadamias lately) & nut butters (almond&coconut and crunchy peanut by @pipandnut are my favourite), avocado, coconut oil to maintain the satiation. I also like to add some superfood powders, like spirulina, maca, cacao, and acai. I personally don’t add oats or other primary carb sources, because at the end of the day, carbs are sugars, which drive up your blood sugar and only keep you full until it drops back to normal.
Having said this, I don’t meant to demonise carbs. I personally do better on higher fat diet, but I don’t believe in excluding food groups completely. I personally include carbs from starchy vegetables, quinoa and buckwheat into my meals .
Anyway, back to my lunches. As the weather is getting a bit too cold for my liking (I’m so happy it’s still sunny!), my body is slowly drifting away from cold smoothies, towards hot, warming soups. But once again, I’m running out of caption space, so watch this space for some soup recipes coming up, including one of my favourite recipes of my dad’s.
MEXICO 🌮!! picture ur Sunday morning waking up in ur messy room which u drunk in, sticky drinks on the table, left over glasses and a tacky floor is exactly the appeal of Mexico last night🙃 I shouldn’t complain because it’s a shame on me moment that I paid for that service and didn’t even mention being mad😑 the food however did make up for my hangry tummy 🙄 if I went there with my eyes closed and just ate the food I would have left a much happier girly. Yesterday was a well deserved cheat day but I gotta admit that if u don’t eat bread and flour tortillas very often then ur sleep that night will be so rudely interrupted as mine was... by my twisting guts 😡🤬! I’d explain what I got my pretty easy to just look and see 🌯🌮🍗
EKIM 🍔!!! Some people like there roots on a dusty Sunday morning me however, like mine between 2 soggy buns :) (beetroot emoji is very relevant here) ... Ekim is quite possibly one of my top burger eats just cuz it’s so quick easy and satisfying 🍔🍔 I got the Danny which has double bacon 🥓, egg 🍳 and beetroot relish PLUS I added guac cause I’m lavish and we r in full swing of avo season 🥑. No better way to spend a beaming Sunday than eating beef n bread in the sun 🧜🏼♀️

I THINK YESSSS 🤤🥂🤪 I can’t even explain how hard it is being stingy guys but tonight my mother is in town and treated me out!!! love love love 🤩 we got chicken dumplings 🥟, chicken currayy 🍜, fried squid 🦑, tiger beef 🐆, crab bao for da boy 🦀, pork belly 🍖 BUT ABOVE ALL ELSE MY COCKTAIL.. not gonna lie best part !! It was a vanilla vodka influced ... WATERMALON MOJITO 🍉🍉🍉 absolutely treated owt

I MEAN LOOK AT IT 🤫😍 I don’t really recall wat it was so make ur own judgement on what’s being served🧘🏽♀️ I can tell ya it was pretty tasatay🍴
