Food Log (including creamy pine nut sauce)

I’m going to try and post a bit more regularly again… so lets start with what I ate today:

Late Morning: Chocolate Pudding (you all know the recipe by now, but today I added a honey mango, was delicious)

Early afternoon: A small piece of raw cake left over from what Jolita and me made yesterday with coconut, banana, almonds, dates pine nuts, lucuma and a topping (or preferably base) made from cacao nibs, almonds, dates, carob powder and a little agave nectar.

Late afternoon: Some strawberries and a little later a couple of honey mangos (my current favourite in-season fruit!)

Dinner: I started out with a couple of sheets of nori in which I rolled some avocado, yellow pepper, tomato, sun dried tomato and a bit of basil. Then I made the following sauce by put all this in my Vita-Mix:

  • 1 yellow pepper
  • 1 small tomato
  • 2 sun dried tomato halves
  • hanful of pine nuts
  • a few leaves of basil (would have put more in but that was all I had)
  • a small piece of red onion
  • a very small piece of fresh ginger
  • 3/4 avocado

I blended it up and served it with watercress, spinach and rocket (arugula for you Americans), unfortunately from the shop as it was raining and I was too busy to go and pick anything, and a small piece of this delicious cheese with wild garlic.

As I’m currently addicted to pine nuts, I finished off by blending a handful of pine nuts with a couple of fresh dates, made a nice little desert.

As it’s only 10:30 now, there is a small chance that I’ll eat something else before I go to bed, but I feel quite full so that’s unlikely.
