Quick Veggie Lunch

I went to Brent Cross and while my friends went to McDonald’s, I took a trip downstairs to the Marks&Spencer’s food hall . There were a few reduced items so I took the chance and brought some lunch.

NOTE: Unfortunately I cannot find a picture of the exact salad that I got. Here’s one that looks very similar.   (Mine had apples and a lovely ginger, chilli sauce).

This salad was extremely nice. The vegetables were crunchy and fresh, however the sauce really put the salad together. The sweetness of the apples  really went well (oddly) with the chilli and ginger.

I then  had a Super Berry Smoothie.This was so sweet and because it had been in the fridge all day, it was so refreshing after a warm day. This has I think one of your five a day, which is so great because it is good for you and delicious. (I am however aware that shop brought smoothies are still a treat because they are probably packed with sugar, so not good for your teeth!)But still absolutely great, and better for you than a bottle of coke!

Next, I had a box of mango pieces. I’m a huge fan of fruit but I very rarely have mango (quite frankly I find it a bit expensive) so this was a lovely treat. The mango was sweet but also had a bit of a bitter undertone which I loved as I adore bitter lemons, etc. It smelt and tasted divine!

This was a delicious improved lunch and was surprisingly filling.

Morrison’s Porridge and Fruit

Me and my family went to Morrison’s to get some shopping, but before we went, we decided to get some lunch. I hadn’t had any breakfast, so I was absolutely starving. However they didn’t have any healthy, vegetarian foods that would fill me up so I chose the ‘Porridge with fresh fruit’. This was delicious. The fruit was absolutely beautiful, it was juicy and sweet, and the jam really added to the taste of the porridge.

But I needed something more, something to give me an extra energy boost. And that’s when I thought BANANA! As you probably know,bananas are rammed with potassium. So I cut it up and spread it around the plate. I thought that this really added to the appearance of the porridge.

Another great thing about this porridge is that the oats and bananas release energy slowly, meaning that you get a steady amount of energy through the day, without the crash.

Overall, I would really recommend that if you go to Morrison’s that you would purchase this from the cafe but definitely buy some fresh fruit of your choice to go alongside it!
