Soup, Glorious Soup

'Only the pure in heart can make a good soup'

- Ludwig Van Beethoven

Another week, another meat free monday! 

This week I decided to make one of my new favourite meals, lentil and sweet potato curried soup. The flavours in this dish are really powerful, and make a wonderful light meal after a long cold autumn day.

Vegetarian Carb Free Spag Bol

Meat Free Mondays have transformed my Monday diet, making me appreciate the taste of veggie food, and I'm becoming an avid supporter of the cause!

This week I decided to try a veggie spin on one of my, and the majority of students so it seems, favourite meals, spaghetti bolognese! 

Date Night

After a week of essay writing, philosophy presentations and general university based fun, I decided to take a trip South to visit James in Oxford!

Our long distance relationship means every three weeks or so when we see one another it has almost come customary for us to go out for a date night, usually for a meal!

One of our favourite places to visit together is Pizza Express. Delicious food, reasonable prices and the Oxford Golden Cross restaurant has a lovely atmosphere and beautiful historical features. 

And what better excuse than the new autumn menu to get us back to our favourite Italian pit stop.

Meat Free Mondays

'One day a week can make a world of difference.' 

I have discovered over the past month or so that Instagram is more useful than one would first believe. Rather than being purely a means of stalking friends & celebrities a like, I find it useful for healthy breakfast ideas, dinner recipes and fitness inspiration. However one thing caught my eye over all the other delicious dishes, a concept which I was introduced to through Jamie Oliver's instagram page.
