Sometimes you fancy something different to eat.  I thought it would be a good idea to cook a hot, mean bean chilli.

This is roughly how you prepare the chilli.  It is sooo easy…

Chop a red onion, yellow pepper, cherry tomatoes, mushrooms and drain some chick peas, mixed beans and kidney beans.  Throw in two tins of tomatoes, a little water, spinach, herbs, hot, hot, hot chillies and ground pepper.  Sling it all into a big casserole pot and dump in the oven for a couple of hours.

It is delicious with some rice and filled me up.  I have some left over for lunches.  Hope you are inspired to try a hot, mean chilli.  Enjoy and thank you for reading my blog.

Grotty fruit smoothie…

img_20170302_202855

A few days ago, I was just thinking about leaving to go to Dorset for a mini break, and realised I’ve still got 3 grotty bananas. So decided I couldn’t eat them before leaving and gathered all the old fruit from my fridge and made a smoothie to freeze for when I return.

The end result was delicious. No need to waste old fruit or veg.  Just peel, chop and blend, blend and blend some more.  Only took a few minutes to prepare an amazing breakfast.

Another aspect of minimalism, is not have any waste so this is an enjoyable way of reducing waste and having a yummy drink for breakfast.

Recipe: bananas, peaches, oranges, almond milk and blend until smooth.

Don’t forget to follow and thank you for reading my blog.  Hope you enjoy some delicious smoothies.
