A few starters, served with wine/champagne. Cheese+crackers and homemade hummus+lebanese bread
Lunch: roasted pine nut, avocado and mango salad. One of my favourite combinations!
Roasted smashed potatoes with thyme and fennel seeds. Loved the addition of fennel seeds- good for digestion too!
Salad with mango, rasins, watercress, lettuce, walnuts, alfalfa sprouts and parmasen
Sweet potato and capsicum slice/bake
My Lunch plate. A well balanced meal in my opinion.
Dessert: blueberry, apple and coconut crumble. This was so divine...I even got the recipe from my Nanna so I can make it soon :)
Coconut and jam slice
Cake! It was a delicious, moist but oh-so-light chocolate cake topped with melted chocolate...
Now a little about portion control. As delicious as all this food was, sometimes it's very easy to overeat. At the end of the meal I wanted to feel satisfied, not overly full so what I did was leave out bread with my meal and I opted not to have custard with my blueberry, apple and coconut crumble. I also tried not to over indulge in the cheese and crackers. And because I cut out these foods it meant I had more room to have some delicious homemade dessert and cake! Yummo.
