Tumeric latte – cheap and quick homemade version

I recently became quite obsessed with pukka tumeric latte, but it’s quite expensive. Most other brands have sugar added. So I played around and have come up with a pretty good recipe.

1/2 teaspoon tumeric

1/8 teaspoon ginger

2 pinches black pepper

250 ml unsweetened almond milk

1/2 tablespoon coconut milk

Whisk it all together and microwave for 2 minutes

Around 60 calories per cup

Total natural sugars for this week plus RX bars which are amazing!

Again a quick one, not a lot to say here other than to update where I’m at so you guys who are supporting me in this endeavour have an idea.

One of the things I don’t like with the short way of updating is mfp often shortens the food item when it’s listed so the description is lost. The chocolate at the top of the list refers to this little wonder I discovered:-

Entirely natural no added sugars but also a decent whack of protein which you don’t normally get in these natural bats. Did I mention they are delicious.

Anyway natural sugar intake

Gingerbread bake, steam trains and record players.

Today’s been one of those slightly surreal days that felt like timey wimey stuff was going on. The dog walk was down at what’s called round here “the tracks” it’s where a disused railway line that use to connect Alnwick to mainlines ran. Except now it’s no longer disused, thanks to the work of volunteers the tracks have been relaid and will eventually connect to Alnmouth station. Throughout the year various events are held steam trains, diesel trains running etc today it was steam. You can check out the events here Aln Valley Railway

There’s a certain beauty to old steam trains and what a place do we live in where one direction we are walking next to a river, another a castle another a wood or a beach another still a stream train!

Then after dog was walked it was home to bake something for daughter. I’m attempting to find a gingerbread style recipe using bananas for sweetness. It was a semi success today but I think I need to spread it thinner to make it more biscuit like. I’ll share if I get it too work. Daughter likes it anyway.

After that she and I played around with a record player her Grandmama had kindly given her. Such a nostalgic weirdness listening to records from when I was a teen with my teen, some of which I haven’t heard since then.

Oh and it appears that the only thing that had been keeping my heart beating was caffeine and sugar as since giving both up my heart rate just keeps getting slower!

Hope your weekend has been a good one thus far!

This cat says his has been amazing, but please put me down.

A few days away from the end of month two!!! Plus a few super quick meals.

And not a single sweet treat or snack has passed my lips. Nor a drop of booze, but truthfully that one’s easier as it’s not everywhere and in EVERYTHING!

I have found it harder to stick with this challenge than I thought I would, the food prep gets grinding. This week was particularly tough as I’ve had an ear infection and felt dreadful. I’ve had problems with my ears on and off for years. Grommets were fitted last year as a result and right now I’ve an infection around the grommet. So the grommets were put in to prevent infection and caused an infection. Awesome. I have a nice little pile of boxes of stuff to take.

Because of feeling like an extra in the walking dead everything this week has been really simple. Slow cooker meals, one sauce pan etc.

Like this one which is a soup made from tinned chickpeas, kidney beans, passatta, frozen spinach and dried lentils. Throw it all in a pan and come back half an hour later. I also add in paprika, cumin etc. I like spices! Also had it with soda bread I’d made earlier in the week.

Or this quinoa, chickpeas and veg all boiled together then add feta and olive oil.

Or stir fry veg and fish cooked in a frying pan with lime juice. Didn’t photograph that one.

So as you see, quick and simple then crawl back to bed. That’s where I’m going now.

Oh and my son had some delicious cake this afternoon. I was so jealous..
