Breakfast Lunch Dinner #3 (with braces!)
I’ve had my top brace on for 6 days now. I feel like I’m getting used to it. My top lip seems to be covering it better. I had a sore patch which seems to have quickly healed in the last 24 hours. Overall the whole experience is going well, though saying that, I still can’t face hard foods!
Here’s a soft breakfast, lunch and dinner that I’ve enjoyed!
Scrambled eggs with chopped tomatoes and black pepper
I love eggs so we bought 30 when I had my brace on and I’ve got through half of them already! Scrambled, fried, omelette, I’ve had them all. I’m not sure I’ll ever get bored of egg so I’m quite enjoying eating lots more than usual! The chopped tomatoes are a bit of a mission to eat, so I usually just have the egg to save the hassle.
Homemade tomato, butternut squash and carrot soup topped with sesame sprinkle from The Cheeky Food Co. I reckon I could get bored on a soup diet, but not with this sprinkle. I received it in one of my Flowbox’s and it takes soup to the next level!
This bowl was full of flavour, warming and delicious. It’s sweet potato and carrot mash with mixed herbs, homemade sweet potato flatbread (my first attempt and it was scrumptious) and a mix of cannellini beans, red kidney beans, chickpeas and chopped tomatoes mixed in tomato passata with mild chilli powder. Perfect for all of us to enjoy, even Reuben (age 1) and super easy for me to eat with my new brace!
Sweet Potato Flatbread Recipe
This is quite possibly one of the easiest things I’ve ever made and I’ll be making loads more. I loved the texture. It was soft and squidgy on the inside and harder on the outside, but not hard, just harder than the inside. It was easy for me and my three year old to tear and share. I think she enjoyed it more than me!
1x mug of mashed sweet potato
1.5 x mugs of wholemeal flour
I simply mixed them in a bowl and kneaded together with my hands. Once the right texture to roll, I simply rolled into an uneven oblong sort of shape. I placed on greaseproof on a baking tray and baked for 8 minutes at 200 degrees.
It’s the perfect bread for dipping. I dipped into my sweet potato mash and mixed bean chilli tomatoes. I’m going to have to buy a big pot of hummous (or make some) as this would be the ideal dipping bread.
