I 💟 🍜 | Made this super fresh bowl of Ginger, Red Pepper Noodles that tasted like a pretty close vegetarian Pad Thai by chopping up fresh ginger putting that in a pan with water, letting it simmer added veg gravy granules (as I had no stock). After the ginger had been simmering for about 5 min. I added some dried egg noodles. Cooked up the noodles, added thinly sliced peppers. Stirred it all together with about 1tsp honey and 1tsp miron. Fresh spring onions added once cooked through and some lemon juice (since I have no limes atm). Considering there were hardly any ingredients in this I couldn’t get over how much flavour it had and how fresh it tasted, I used quite a lot of ginger and this really made the dish it gave an amazing fragranced taste and a slight spicy kick. If I’d used limes and had some crushed peanuts it would’ve been pretty close to the Pad Thai’s I’ve bought freshly cooked from the street food stalls in Thailand.

Copper and 🌱 | These little snake plants only need watering once a month when the soil is fully dry, since they grow in very arid conditions naturally, this also means they can tolerate more extreme temperatures in general. Like the UK Climate. London has some pretty bad air quality. Just placing small trees in the front of your house as a screen, or by a window even that faces onto a main road can really help improve this. I love the striking appearance these ones bring and that they need such minimal care. These are a pretty good plant to have in your room at night too as while most plants absorb oxygen (although this isn’t dangerous) at night time, these create it. Apparently you need about 7-10 of them at weist height per person to really make a difference to the air quality, but I think any amount will be beneficial. I couldn’t help Imagining if the underground were full of plants, like this to help regulate air quality. It would be such a simple and relatively maintenance free addition to the tube. It’d be a much nicer way to travel and would help keep the air quality to a high standard. Plus I’m sure it’d make people just happier in general.
Breakfast today with Homemade Granola.
I love granola, it is one of my favourite things to eat. But it can be full of added sugar. So I decided to make my own instead. If you have any fruit that needs to be eaten this is a really good recipe to use it up as any fruits can be used instead of apples or with apples to keep a good consistency.
6 x 🍎Apples (about 6 raw blended apples to make a purée)
2 x Teaspoons of 🥥 coconut oil
Raw oats That’s it, nothing else. Roughly 2 cups.
Blend apples, mix in melted coconut oil and mix this all together with as much oats as necessary to make a semi crumbly mixture. It’s very similar to making an English flapjack. You could probably experiment and make cookies out of this mixture! (Think I’ll try this next as oatmeal cookies are one of my favourite 🍪). Crumble the mixture like you do with short crust pastry. Spread thinly over a baking tray and cook it all until golden brown.
To make this even nicer you could add vanilla essence, raw desiccated coconut and some maple syrup to the mix before baking. Any fruit purée can be used in place of apple sauce. I made a peach one the other day since I had a bag of peaches to eat which was even nicer. I just replaced the apples for peaches and puréed them instead. This is such a simple healthy way to make your own granola, and it smells delicious baking. You can add cinnamon or nuts, raisins, dried fruit and seeds too, to make this even more nutrient rich and flavourful, but this is just the basic recipe. Apples are an extremely versatile overlooked fruit, they can be used in purée form as apple sauce to replace many fats in baking, or halve the amount of butter required. My sister and I once made the most delicious gooey chocolate sponge pudding using only apple sauce instead of butter.
