Hi guys! I am just popping in from London a.k.a my home away from home. I spent the weekend getting back in the swing of being back here. We recently moved homes so along with getting past the jet lagged, I’ve also been familiarising myself with my new surroundings. I’m not going to lie, I kinda love the fact that Tesco supermarket is now my neighbor. It’s relatively small, but big enough to pick up the essentials…which is exactly what I did when I landed:
Green & Black’s 70% chocolate, pumpernickel bread, baby spinach, carrot batons, strawberries, natural peanut butter, pre-cooked chicken, avocado, hummus, unsweetened almond milk
The only thing missing to really consider the above my essentials are eggs. I feel like I face the same dilemma every trip back to London: Eating meals at home made from delicious “London” groceries (i.e. foods not available in Mumbai) or embracing the array of restaurants…hashtag first-world foodie problems ;)! In terms of the former, I ate an epic breakfast over the weekend:
I am hesitatnt to call this a recipe so let’s go with a “meal idea”
Turkey & Avocado Tartine
- Pumpernickel bread
- Wholegrain (or dijon) mustard
- Baby spinach
- Turkey breast slices
- Avocado slices
- Finely ground black pepper
Once bread is toasted, spread with mustard. Top with baby spinach, turkey breast slices & avocado slices. Top with black pepper. Dig in.
Easy & delicious! I foresee this being repeated mucho over the next few weeks as a quick breakfast or lunch around here. I had it with a side of Alpro Coconut Milk, which is total liquid deliciousness. Especially if you like piña coladas, you NEED to try this stuff….and you’ll also need to add your own rum ;)!
What’s for breakfast and/or lunch today?
