Dish of the Week: breakfast from Borough Market

Flower breakfast 💐🌻🌼

today we’re getting up with lots of positive energy🕴️.  i was very excited about enjoying the delights I got on a trip to Borough Market. about 20 mins were involved in cooking and preparation.

it does help if I put everything I plan to use in a tray in the fridge, then I can just sort of 🤖 robotically pick up the ingredients and process them.

Dish of the Week: post yoga salad


Post Yoga Salad


Feels so good and nutritious following a late evening relaxing yoga.

And a great way of starting the week.  Yes, Tuesday it’s the best day to start the week.  Monday is usually such a blur.

I’ve come to the conclusion that the reason I couldn’t stomach salad in the evening is because of the lettuce.  It feels more like a lunchtime thing. In crudité style feels much more appetising.


no lettuce salad


white asparagus,
green tomatoes,
a splash of lemon.


Prep time:  7 mins



Dish of the Week: cooking for the week ahead

Set aside 2 hours of your Sunday evening to have your week meals sorted.

Stick stuff on the oven, starting with the chicken, and cut vegetables while the other food gets baked. Put sauces, condiments and herbs on a line and apply randomly.


Bake varied sweet peppers with avocado, add lumpfish caviar on top.

Asparagus with coriander and mint, baked in japanese toasted sesame oil. 

3 courgettes baked in olive oil, with ground star anise powder, mint and white pepper.


Stir fry turkey mince, turmeric, cumin seeds.

Bake 2 aubergines in olive oil with mixed beans, add ground star anise, poppy seeds and chilli seeds to season.

Large chicken, seasoned with cumin seeds, cardamon pods, white pepper, olive oil and lemon.


Wholemeal spaghetti also baked with cherry tomatoes, sweetcorn, coriander pesto sauce, black pepper and sprinkled with rose petals.

2 large sweet potatoes baked in coconut oil with sweet pepper powder and white pepper.

Boiled eggs and marker pen.  Add bananas and you have a great breakfast.


Strawberries, melon, raspberries.

Lemongrass tea for the evening, Costarican coffee for the mornings.


And finally, choose a netflix tv show to watch for the week while you put your feet up.  Jessica Jones, American Oddissey or The Good Wife spring to mind.





Dish of the Week: Lunch for the working week

I only put half a packet of pasta, but it seemed like a lot later.  Anyway, it only took me 1 1/2 hours to make.  Ok, no magic recipes here, but all cooked in the oven at the same time and almost no washing up afterwards.

It’s just going to be smoked salmon and salad with soup and brown toast for dinners.  Easy week now to catch up on Game of Thrones.

Lunch takeaways


Brown pasta, tuna, pine nuts, cherry tomatoes, spearmint, olive oil.

Sparragus, sweetcorn, chili, olive oil

Chicken, carrots, avocado, tamarind sauce.

Salad, with lettuce, spinach, watercress, rocket, mini cucumber, baby beetroots, green tomatoes.

Strawberries and macadamia nuts, oranges, baked apples.



Dish of the Month: Borough Market tuna steak

This had to be one of the nicest tuna steaks I’ve eaten.  Tuna is so nice for you, so full of calcium and vitamin D, and one of your twice a week blue fish portions.

Also, I adore these Mr Organic lentils.  They are so tasty!  With virtually no fat at all, good of fibre and leaving you full for ages, what’s not to like?  Other than the gasses of course.

Borough Market tuna steaksI cooked the tuna in coconut oil, and by the end of it I added the pineapple, lemon splash and grated orange skin.

The lentils are baked with pine nuts, green chillies, coriander, garlic, ginger, cardamom seeds and aniseed in coconut oil.

It was just followed with orange cut into very small squares.

So nice.
