My last exam of the season is tomorrow, so naturally I’m procrastinating: reading fic, watching youtube clips on reincarnated Egyptians (Omm Seti), and generally plotting my life around comfort food. To totally legitimize this terrible behaviour I’m sharing something I’ve been munching a few times now for lunch with much glee: easy chickpea scramble that is so protein-packed you won’t feel hungry for a long while after.
I simply have to share something that’s been taking over my life for the past fortnight or so since my blender broke (one of many). When you have a habit of smoothie bowls for breakfast and no means to an end, you make a plan! With my ancient food processor at my side, I’ve discovered the most delicious, filling, big-portioned monster of a meal that is super diabetic friendly, tastes great and is so modifiable it’s crazy.

Warning, this is all about the comfort food, since this has been a sucky month and I don’t foresee any let-up anytime soon (and hence chocolate!). I’ve got my first exam later today, so naturally I’m procrastinating just a little, but I’ve been meaning to share my comfort munchies for the past week or so, so here goes! :)
It is ridiculous at the moment in South Africa – one minute hot and the next cold. All my meal planning goes out the window when I plan for warming oat bowls and steaming zoodles and then it’s all sunshine and chirpiness, or when I haul out the frozen fruit and it starts raining. At any rate I never need many excuses to indulge in something delicious! With that in mind, I’m going to represent the south and share a super easy but delicious and somewhat creamy tangerine grape pop recipe.
Ack! I’m falling behind with everything in life thanks to school starting back up and exam studying going on and on forever, but I have to share this bit of munch since it’s what kept me going today in between rushing from place to place. It’s a super dense, tasty and very much made to be an any-time snack. I’ve named these breakfast doughnuts since I had them for second breakfast, but there’s no shame in filling them with hummus and pesto for a savoury dinner dish with salad even or nice-cream and date paste for something sweet!
I have to study for exams, so naturally I’m procrastinating and thought this would be the perfect time to share something truly delicious ;) I’ve seen these sorts of treats at the Saturday food market and have quizzed the poor person a few times on how she made hers (which aren’t vegan), but of course I had to veganize it eventually and here it is! Delicious, actually easy, and all done with just a bit of patience :) Continue reading
I’m a cookie monster. That is, I can slay a packet in seconds flat but creating them is another story altogether. Somehow I have the motivation to make layered cakes, baklava and even chutney from scratch, but cookies are terrifying? Well, quirks and what not. Or laziness. Either way, it’s holiday (is my gloating getting to be a bit much? :D) so I have no excuses. Cookies for everyone! Continue reading
