A Foodie’s Paradise
Good evening friends! How was everyone’s first full day of the weekend? It sounded like a lot of you liked the looks of those pancakes Hopefully at least one of you made them for yourself today? If not, Sunday morning is a great time for pancakes too Heck, anytime is a good time for pancakes
So, as you all know I visited the Farmer’s Market here in London today I was super excited because it is truthfully my favourite place in all of London I wish I could pitch a tent and live there… I really really do…
The girls and I met up at the market this morning at 9:00 after I hit up the gym (I did this workout along with cable crunches and hanging leg lifts circuit style)
Unfortunately, it was one of the coldest mornings we’ve experienced so far this morning and it was raining, but that definitely didn’t prevent us foodies from heading to the outside portion of the Farmer’s Market I mean, it only comes twice a week You’ve gotta take what you can get!
It usually happens that I buy the first thing I see; that definitely happened today.
That big bag of kale right there. All over it. Like white on rice.
It was so beautiful I couldn’t turn it down.
There were all sorts of squash I didn’t know what to do with myself!
I didn’t even recognize some of them
We saw the biggest heads of lettuce the Earth has ever produced.
Has anyone ever tried a paw paw before?
Or a quince?
There’s something about local food that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside
After making our purchases at the outdoor farmer’s market, we headed inside to do the rest of our shopping!
The inside of the market is huge and offers anything you could ever ask for It’s a foodie paradise.
We spent most of our time in my favourite store, Homeopathy London I came across some pretty cool finds that I had never seen before!
One of them being, Quinola, a quinoa granola!
Amazing. Pure genius.
I heard the Hallelujah chorus when I saw these
Finally a can of pure pumpkin smaller than the usual ice cream sized tubs I’ve been buying
Our shopping date ended off with a coffee from London’s Little Red Roaster
I got their Columbian decaf. Caffeine and I do not get along at the best of times…
It was so nice to spend my morning with the girls We are planning on going together again. It is most enjoyable shopping for and browsing food with other food lovers! I am sure fortunate I have these girls as my friends
(Can you tell I just came from the gym? Lovely)
I know this is getting to be quite the lengthy post, but I bet you are all dying to know what I brought home from the market!?
Alright, alright… If I must…
Here is what I bought!
Flat leaf parsley and kale
(I have already used some of this parsley today! A new recipe soon to be posted!)
Baby bok choy and raspberries
The raspberries were expensive, but look at them. Seriously, would you be able to turn these beauties down? I couldn’t.
Tahini, black beans (they were on sale; buy one get one free!), and turmeric (I will be using this in an upcoming recipe!)
And last, but definitely not least (I have been eyeing this up since I moved to London at the beginning of September) About Time Protein Powder! I decided to try the chocolate flavour since they only offer chocolate and vanilla and I already had vanilla at home.
Protein powder review comin’ at ya tomorrow Be ready.
Overall, my day was fabulous As I knew it would be Friends, a farmer’s market, and shopping for food at my all time favourite place in all of London!? Yup, today was amazing.
