Memory card reader, GET IN MY MOUTH, sorry no, that's you Mr. Fake-NAKD-Banana-Bread-Ball, GET IN MY LAPTOP!
Now... mathematics IS NOT MY STRONG POINT, but i reckon i 'cracked' the recipe (not really hard.. but for me.. well, i just felt incredibly PROUD...)
So I got friendly with my food processor and the end result was these...
Yeah ok, SUE ME, i edited the last picture but not the first two... i'm a terrible blogger.
I also wanted to show you (an also EDITED :O) picture of a typical couple of meals here in the Sarah Household... First up, a gorge beetroot, red pepper, protein sprinkle, tofu PLATE OF LUUURVE..
And then an almost NIGHLTY tofu stir-fry habit (ignore the fact there is daylight in this picture.. it was lunch)
And then, the crowning porridge-y glory (now you canne post a picture of porridge without telling you, dear readers, sorry, NO READERS, what goes in.. so here goes:
- 1/4 cup oats
- 2 egg whites
- 1/2 frozen banana, melty-McMeltison
- A cocoa/water 'sauce' (in a New York accent, of course) "Saaawwce"

If there are ANY USA peeps out there that are reading this, at any stage (even if its 3 years after the ORIGINAL POST) that would want to do a blog blog swap with soem English goodies, gimme a holla, por favor (see i'm mixing it up...). The item in question, specifically that i would be after would be some powdered peanut butter.
Trader Joe's and PB2 come highly recommended i HEAR, with my little ear to the blog-ground....
Yeah, or if anyone has any US relatives? I'm just born and bred English, with a hint of Flemmish thrown in, for good measure.. of course. But i don't really know of any Belgium health food products i'm after, so that's a bit unhelpful x

A bargainous £39.99 from ZARA.
Was a pricey day, but one of the funnest time i've had with da muddah and sistar in quite a while. There is some issues that are getting pretty hard to handle with my twin at the moment (yes, I HAVE A TWIN!) and i guess it was nice to take some time out.
Freya over at Brit Chick Runs is hosting an incredibly generous giveaway of a box of heaven. no literally, it's heaven..... errr, in the form of raw nuts, fruit and flavours AU NATURAL. Mock me all you want, but the Nakd bars ARE pure heaven, they actually taste way better than any chocolate bar (especially my favourite flavour, cocoa orange, terrys chocolate orange? BITE ME!)
Anyway, it's only available to us privileged UK bloggers and readers so get entering.
Have an excellent day!!! xx
(FYI, on the camera lead front, i haver MADE HEADWAY... pictures of hot steamy porridge, beetroot curries (OMG to DIE FOR), new red ZARA dresses and TK Maxx baragianous margains are coming... to a screen near you.)

I just want 'em all! The rusty coloured tea dress was sitting contently in my shopping bag, £15 and perfect for a Monday pick-me-up-purchase (feeling hot on the Ps today, obviously..) and SHOCK HORROR, i went to look at it and it had sold out! Same with the TOPSHOP cable knit jumper. BOOOO. The Miss Selfrdge bag is a bit of a stretch at £45, but really that's only 2 £20 notes and the cost of lunch at M&S. (FYI, this is my most used reasoning strategy, its genius, no?)

Well, i forgot about it (yeah, must learn how to do that again, normally i can't WAIT for things to set / cook / cool before devouring - which, FYI, normally ends in some kind of burnt mouth, food poisoning, underpar baked good...) and.. well i remembered this morning but it was frozen solid.
So.... i put it in the microwave for a mere 10 seconds, but alas, twas ruined. But still amazing.
Moral of the story.... MUST. NOT. FORGET. HOW. POWERFUL. THE. MICROWAVE. IS.
I'm having a bit of a dilemma at the moment, well not really a dilemma. I went to see a nutritionist the other month about some digestion issues and she has put me on a strict no sugar no artificial sweetener diet. THE ONLY issue i'm having with this, and i mean the only, is that i have to limit my protein powder, and be picky about which one i use. My usual Maxitone one (which i LOVE LOVE LOVE, in chocolate and banana) is too heavy on the sucralose, so i'm now using one with less from Holland and Barrett, a soya protein, not whey.
What a pointless spiel. Anyway, on the bright side, i have acquired (rather sneakily, i might add) my mum's camera so we may actually be able to get some GORGE pictures! woohoo! Just need the connector lead. Mission numero dos. Wish me luck, i'm goooooin' in.....
