A fantastic weekend in delicious company.

Look who came to visit!
This lovely lady, who happened to bring me into the world. I love when my mum comes to stay! Like every houseguest, vegan fare is force fed under pain of death! Luckily for me, ma is also a health goddess with an open mind (and stomach!) who shares a love of all things lovely, local and leafy.
Of course, we scurried off without delay to the health food depot to replenish our stocks for the weekend, and enjoy a gorgeous breakfast in the sun.
Then it was off to enjoy some incredible winter weather and get the limbs moving.
To satisfy our post-workout hunger pangs, I whipped us us a simple + delicious kale salad.
shredded kale leaves
thinly sliced radish
fresh lemon juice
salt & pepper
drizzle of extra-virgin olive oil
(I ‘massage’ the avocado through the kale leaves first, then add the toppings + dressing)
The PB parsnip fries made another appearance! This time, I used some sweet potato as well – definitely a delicious alternative, however they don’t bake as perfectly as the little parsnip pieces.
We bought this organic keeeetchup (with accompanying American drawl) at the health food store, and even though I really try & limit the amount of things that are ‘pre-made’ in my pantry, I have had the odd occasion lately where i’ve hankered for big slurp of tomata sauce, and this here specimen was a HIT!
It had comfort-food appeal.
Baked some zucchini muffins with a healthy dollop of peanut butter to take on a sea-side picnic.
Beetroot chips & seaweed crackers.
Another kale salad, to go.
Well I think it’s time to hit the hay – one more day & i’m off to Brisvegas to spend some quality time with my dad and his menagerie. Migrating north in the hopes of warmer weather!
