Now if you can’t possibly wait for Sunday to find out about what I’ve been cooking and eating you can follow me on either instagram or twitter – username @plumesworld on both.
Started off the week on a healthy (and artistic note!) this is coyo coconut yogurt with a sliced plum. I can only eat coyo with something like fruit, my favourite coconut yogurt is coco collaborative who also make some fabulous coconut frozen yogurts.
On Tuesday I went to Pizza Express with my colleague Luke. As we are studying for our professional qualifications we are entitled to NUS cards (student discount) and Pizza Express offer 40% off on Monday and Tuesday. I went for the Bosco salad without mozzarella or honey and mustard dressing. I love the garlic mushrooms in this dish. Pizza Express do a completely vegan pizza – the pianta and if you take in a sealed pack of vegan cheese they will add it to your pizza!
Tuesday night I was staying at my Dad’s so did this easy meal of Fry’s country pie with jacket potato and stir fried sprouts. If you’re not a fan of boiled sprouts like me, try them stir fried with leeks it will change your world!
On Wednesday I went swimming with my Mum. She is omni but always cooks us a both a vegan meal when I come round for dinner. She had some vegan cheese to use up so she cooked this favourite of hers – melanzana parmigiana. This one included pesto between the layers of cheese and aubergine and I’ve told her she can definitely make this one again!
On Thursday my sister-in-law Gemma came around to help me install a new light fitting in my snake’s vivarium so I made curry for us. This is a proper store cupboard favourite. The sag dhal used dried lentils and frozen spinach, the bombay aloo used tinned tomatoes and a potato that was on the turn and dried rice with frozen peas; I had loads left over to freeze for lunches.
Sometimes I get bored with breakfasts and get into a rut. Kingsmill English muffins were on offer 2 packs for £1.20 so I had one with peanut butter and banana for breakfast on Friday.
Lastly my Saturday night roast care of my father-in-law Joe, cranberry nut roast with roasted veg and spuds and I was so full I only managed one potato! I don’t know what’s happening to me!
Hope you enjoyed my round up and let me know what vegan meals you have been having!

Good to see someone else using frozen spinach! I think it’s criminally underrated stuff and I put loads of it in every meal I make. How was the bombay aloo?
I’m trying to up my leafy green veg intake so its an easy one! The potatoes could have been a bit more done but the spice was just right. I got a menu for an Indian restaurant that has a huge vegan selection so definitely going to post about that once I’ve been!
