I had massive cravings for lots of food today! kept thinking about baking cakes. In the future, when I have more calories in my budget I will have some cake every now and then (not too often), and that’s what kept me from feeling bad. Instead I added some sweet to my salad with yummy dates!

My food today was SOOOO good. I just can’t explain. :P Making yummy food makes losing weight pretty fun. Things are going to plan!
ABOUT MY SALAD:
Ingredients: usual kale and lettuce, shredded up a little. 40g vegan cheese, 115g (4) dates, 100g mushrooms, celery stick, vinegar.
All that needed doing was the oil-free frying of the mushrooms with the celery, adding salt and chilli. Then I added that to the sliced up dates, roughly chopped cheese, kale and lettuce. Splashed some vinegar over and VOILA! Massive salad fit for men and butch ladies, I tell ya. The dates were beeaaauuutiful.
ABOUT MY SOUP:
Ingredients: 300g mushrooms (cup mushrooms and about 4 oyster), 3 sundried tomatoes (the ones that are dehydrated), tarragon, vegetable stock, vegan yoghurt (alpro brand), one cardamon seed, tables spoon (maybe a clove or more) chopped garlic.
I cooked the mushrooms a little in the soup pot, with the garlic, some salt and a lot of tarragon. Like a table spoon and a half of it. Added water and the stock cube. Split the cardamon seed and threw that in, and the sundried tomatoes. Brought it to boil, then turned down and let it simmer for a good time, maybe 20 mins. Then added 100g of vegan yoghurt, mixed in. Let simmer for another good while, maybe 15 mins. Then BLEND (to make smooth).
SO yummy. I’m making it again tomorrow. And its only about 150 cals for two portions. Highly recommended! :)
