It’s certainly been feeling a lot more autumnal in these parts this week! I just adore this time of year and I’m reminding myself to enjoy it as much as possible which this week has included some blustery but bright walks with Finley in the pram.
I’ve been on a porridge kick this week and my favourite way to eat it has been topped with Coconut Collaborative yoghurt! This was chocolate oats (just plain oats with cocoa powder added) topped with raspberry coconut yoghurt and a fig:
I also made toffee apple porridge topped with peanut butter. I used coconut sugar to sweeten the porridge and give it a toffee like flavour:
Other tasty food this week..
Smoothie in a bowl – this included spinach, frozen cherries, avocado, cocoa powder and almond milk topped with almond butter, choc shot sauce, raisins and coconut
Salad with lentils, beetroot and feta cheese
Salad with chickpeas, feta, beetroot and walnuts
Home made red lentil kale and tomato soup

Yesterday morning James and I took Fin on a long walk and came across this outdoor gym which I thought looked quite fun for something to use in the future. Of course I had to have a go of some of the equipment quite hilariously for James!

I got myself a chai latte from Cafe Nero and looked around the market and the shops while Finley slept snuggled in to me. He got lots of comments from passers by! It was just so nice to be out and about with him after the last couple of weeks we’ve had. Also…
