Neom scented candle

Happy Sunday everyone! This week has been one of those cosy rainy weeks so I’ve been spending days wrapped up with Finley watching TV and enjoying scented candles. I’ve also been baking! 

Eat

Pumpkin plantain bread with apple

I picked up some plantains from the market at the weekend so I made some of Purely Twins Pumpkin bread. I had a couple of slices with cashew butter and a sliced apple for breakfast. I also made some snack balls:

Cashew coconut lucuma snack balls

I blitzed together 1/2 cup of cashews, 1/2 cup of shredded coconut, 1 cup of dates, pinch of salt and some lucuma powder then rolled them into balls. They were really tasty!

Cherries coyo and almond butterWarm cherries with chocolate coyo and almond butter

Roast cauliflower and tahini saladRoast cauliflower with lentils, quinoa, spinach and tahini dressing

Lentils brussels squash goats cheeseRoast brussels sprouts, roast squash, lentils and goats cheese

Sweet potato and mackerelBaked sweet potato with tinned mackerel and spinach

Move

Fun Post Natal Workout with Baby YouTube

I found that fun workout video on You Tube so Fin and I did that together a few times. Unfortunately on Tuesday I managed to miss the bottom two steps on the stairs and fell on my back and ankle which are still really sore so no more than walking after that!

Wear

Mama and babyMe >> Shirt: Sainsbury’s, vest: H&M, black jeggings: New Look, boots: New Look // Finley >> Panda suit: H&M

Finley and I went for a nice trip around the shops, we had such a lovely time just the two of us!

Love

Coffee and laptop

Coffee (decaf)! Or rather the time to relax with one. Since Finley’s op I feel like I’ve been able to chill out so much more easily and I’ve been loving my morning coffee break while Finley naps in the wrap. Also…

Still watching House and loving it // the new X-men movie on blu-ray // Christmas shopping // catching up with my best friend // getting 4 hours straight sleep when James watches Finley // booking in the first of our photo sessions for James, Finley and I // Finley gaining 10 ounces in a week! // the MTV Christmas channel

How has your week been? I’ve asked this question a few times but coffee or tea? I can never fully decide!

    Your salads look amazing! Glad you’ve been having more time to relax and spend time with Finley :) I am more of a coffee person but I don’t drink it every day so I guess I appreciate it more when I do! x

      Thanks Lily! I used to drink my coffee now and again as well, perhaps I should go back to that and enjoy it more when I have it!

    Those cherries looks so delicious Laura!
    Sorry to hear about the stairs, hope you feel better soon. I’ve done that blogilates workout without baby a few times – it’s a good one!

    Have you just discovered House? You’re so lucky, it’s one of my favourite tv shows from the 2000’s; the House/Wilson relationship is the best modern representation of Holmes/Watson that I’ve seen to date (sorry Johnny Lee Miller, Robert Downey Jr and Benedict Cumberbatch – Hugh Laurie kicks all your arses).

      Yes! I’m watching it right now :-) Totally agree with you, love the others but Hugh is superb in House. Will be gutted when we get to the end of it all!

    Love that shirt, who would thought it’s from Sainsburys! Love coffee when made by Italian friends or Italy(best beverage ever) the SA brew at home. Speaking of which beware of the highly-toxic ie chemicalised decaffeination processed as it’s far from ethical(it’s better to have fewer cups of proper tea & coffee then ingesting nail polish remover), do your research, Laura and go for ethical brands such as Clipper. Your eats this week are yum!

      I get organic water processed (I think that’s the name for it) decaf from a local deli which is amazing, so don’t worry, I’m definitely avoiding those toxins!

    Is it weird that I imagine working out with a baby to be so fun?? Challenging, too, probably? Did Fin enjoy it? I’m keeping my fingers crossed your back and ankle will feel better soon!
    And oh my, that plate of brussels sprouts, squash and lentils looks SO good. Do you have a recipe for it or just combine the individual ingredients? I want to try it for my workday lunches.

    Reply
    • Laura Agar Wilson

      Haha as long as the baby is co-orporative! I was actually going to post that as a recipe but never got round to photographing it, its really simple though, literally just the roast veggies and lentils topped with the goats cheese.

    All the food looks so good! That cherry, almond butter and coyo combo looks dreamy. I only just started putting some salt in my homemade energy balls over the last few weeks, and it was such a revelation- makes a big difference!

    I really need to get goat’s cheese more often. I adore that cheese but just never buy it (probably because I eat it too quickly!) How cool that there are those Blogilates videos specifically for with a baby! Sorry about your accident though – ouch :-S
    And lovely that you’re outfit pics now include Finley’s too :)
