Foodie Friday On A Saturday - What I Ate In June

Apologies for the mini disappearing act but the tummy bug from hell decided to pay me another visit :( To be honest over the last couple of days food has been the last thing on my mind but since I'm starting to feel a little bit better I thought I'd do my food review of the month post for you.

In between my bouts of illness I've actually eaten pretty healthily this month, with lots of salads and vegetable based dishes. First up a lovely salad which included green olives, boiled eggs, mixed salad leaves, cherry tomatoes,chives,  pickled cucumbers, coleslaw, and  grated mozzarella, topped with just a touch of blue cheese salad dressing.

Next up a Greek Salad, I love Greek salad or village salad as it's often referred to in Cyprus. It's a super fresh tasting combination of lettuce, cucumber, peppers, red onion, cherry tomatoes, olives and feta. I served mine with an olive oil, garlic, lemon juice and balsamic dressing, and topped it with some marinated char grilled aubergines.

I'm a huge omelet / frittata fan, but I could never make them properly until my mum got an amazing set of non stick pans.

This one contained onions, mushrooms, courgette, peppers, and tomatoes, with just a sprinkling of cheese on the top before it went under the grill. I served it with mixed salad leaves, coleslaw and pickled cucumbers.

I also showed you a few recipes this month including my yummy and simple mushroom risotto

and my gluten free cheese scones.

I managed to stick to my healthy eating plan for most of the month but I did have a couple of wobbles, one of which was these.

Yes another addition to the M&S Veggie Percy family, these yummy vegetarian jelly sweets have the rather catchy name of Veggie Colin The Caterpillar Becomes A Beautiful Butterfly, me and Mummy Lou really enjoyed them x

Next up these, yes I know they look a bit rude, but they are amazing, Iceland Popping Candy Ice Lollies, It's a ice cream which is covered in a sort of strawberry flavoured chocolate packed with popping candy - they are sooo good.

and this wobble, which maybe wasn't so bad some Easi Yo Sweet Greek yogurt which some lovely and sweet fresh strawberries x

Finally I had a gorgeous gluten free, vegetarian afternoon tea at Serendipity, as part of the North East Bloggers Vintage Social, I had scones with cream and jam, fresh blueberries, chocolate chip muffins, and various luxury cheese sandwiches, washed down with copious amounts of tea served in gorgeous vintage tea cups. Here are a few teaser pics but a full post on the event will be live tomorrow xx

Hope you enjoyed my foodie review of the month, did you eat anything interesting or particularly moreish in June? let me know in the comments x

  1. Ah, they all look fantastic Lou. Iceland Popping Candy Ice Lollies bring back some amazing memories, and I shall try to find them again. You could try adding some oregano and walnuts in the Greek salad. It's yummy!
