#100daysoffresh: Days 31 - 35

Vegetables for days!

This challenge is really a great way to make sure that at least one meal a day is fruit or veggie based. I'm a big fan of said foods, and happily chow down on my five-to-seven portions a day, but the challenge to compose a pretty plate of produce (or to order it in a restaurant over other, perhaps more processed options) has been fun and thought-provoking.

Here's the yumminess of the past little while:

Day 31

Some days you just crave simple, tasty comfort food. Creamy-cheesy spinach pasta (I must share my cheat for this, half the calories you'd expect!), topped with a little grated carrot and ripe, vibrant vine ripened tomatoes.

Day 32

On Saturday I headed out of London for a blog event sponsored by The Pointer (review to follow, this country mouse was in her element!), and this was my gorgeous plate of veggies, less a couple of asparagus spears which I'd gobbled ahead of remembering to take a snap!

Day 33

Fruit salad for breakfast again - yumminess on a sunny day!

Day 34

One of the simplest meals I know, a quick and tasty veggie stir fry! I tend to improv and just use what we have in, so it's a frugal dream too: this is courgette, sweetcorn, and red pepper, plus a simple sauce of fresh lemon juice, honey and light soy sauce.  Add in a bag of microwave rice (my kind of convenience product) and you have a delicious meal for two!

Day 35 

The lovely Emma invited me out to Chelsea to look at the flowers on display at Chelsea in Bloom, and we had a great time chatting, taking pictures and having a rickshaw ride. After our wanderings we popped in to Comptoir Libinais for dinner and I loved this fresh, crunchy chicken, feta and pomegranate salad.

I'm trying out some new recipes next month which I can't wait to share - I'm sure plenty of them will feature as part of this challenge too!


  1. I'm liking the look of the salad at Comptoir Libanais. yummy.

    1. It was really tasty, with a nice citrus kick!

  2. Wow! All of these dishes look divine! Please share the secret to your wonderful pasta :)

    1. I will be doing so - god bless tricks that cut out a few of the naughties :)

  3. Who knew you will turn boring (healthy) food into something very appealing to eyes. Good job <3

    1. Thank you - good, healthy food made well and simply is a real favourite!

  4. Big YUM! My NY resolution was to pay more attention to eating fresh and unprocessed and it has been both delicious and enjoyable. Your food looks utterly yummy! Keep up the good work 👍

    Thanks for sharing!

    1. Thank you so much, Leigh - the less processed the better is my motto!

  5. All of your dishes look delicious. I've come over from the 30+ FB page so will be having a look back through your posts to see what you eat for the other 30 days x

    1. I hope you enjoy - I love cooking healthy, fresh foods! Lovely to 'meet' you.

  6. Love your foodie posts, so much inspiration for eating healthy, but still having delicious food.

    1. Thanks so much Emma - love getting healthy meals in.


Thank you for your comment - I do read them all but it may take me a little while (a couple of days) to respond during busy times. I love reading what you have to say!

Have a wonderful day!
