Clean Eating: Meal Planning for the work week!

Monday, 1 September 2014
I mentioned in my last few blog posts that after all our holiday fun, I am trying to get back on the clean eating bandwagon. I thought I would share a simple meal plan I put together for this working week. It’s not flash, or fussy, nor does it require any weird ingredients! I just hope it’ll give someone else some inspiration or ideas during a slump they may be having! I do this before I go grocery shopping, and then tweak afterwards if I got a good bargain or something wasn’t in stock.



Meal Planner from Kikki K
Monday 
  • Breakfast: Fruity Chia pudding topped with granola and a large black coffee
  • Lunch: Organic high fibre flaxseed sourdough toast, topped with full fat cottage cheese, chia seeds, mixed greens and 2 boiled eggs with a side of radish
  • Dinner: Baked pork loin chop, quinoa and vegetables sautéed in butter, garlic, chicken stock and parsley
Tuesday
  • Breakfast: Fruity Chai pudding, topped with granola and a large black coffee
  • Lunch: Half an avocado, leftover sautéed vegetables & quinoa, with radish, La Zuppa soup and chia
  • Dinner: Roasted capsicum stuffed with quinoa and sautéed vegetables (I normally change the flavour up; add some cumin, chilli, coriander etc.)
Wednesday
  • Breakfast: Organic high fibre flaxseed sourdough toast, topped with half an avocado, greens and boiled eggs
  • Lunch: La Zuppa soup with chia, and leftover roasted capsicum
  • Dinner: Grilled chicken with roasted sweet potato and a side salad of greens
Thursday
  • Breakfast: Organic high fibre flaxseed sourdough toast with butter, sweet potato, cinnamon and chia
  • Lunch: I have a lunch date, so nothing specific planned. Possibly sushi or thai
  • Dinner: Ham and vegetable crustless quiche
Friday
  • Breakfast: Organic high fibre flaxseed sourdough toast with half an avocado and vegemite
  • Lunch: La Zuppa soup with chia and 3 wholegrain ryvita’s topped with cottage cheese, avocado and greens
  • Dinner: Having a girly night out, likely to be pub food to go along with those beers I will be drinking!
 Snacks
  • I try not to factor in snacks, because I found I would watch the clock like a hawk! I try to make sure that my meals are big enough and filling enough to last me until the next. If I do get peckish when I’m at work, I’ll have a cup of tea, some air popped popcorn from the vending machine or duck downstairs to the convenience store and grab a Bounce protein ball for a quick fix. If I’m at home, I’ll have a handful of almonds (yep, I said handful, not this measly “7 almonds as a snack” stuff people talk about!), a piece of toast, or a small serving of oats cooked in water with cottage cheese and black pepper added after.
The weekend can be a bit hit and miss for me though and I have found that planning just doesn’t work, as we are always off doing something! This Saturday I’ll get a decent brunch from the farmers market in the morning, and we are double dating at night and going out for Thai. I think Sunday breakfast will be at a local café, and we’ll have a late lunch/early dinner of a Sunday roast the pub with friends!

I try to follow the 80-20 rule and eat well 80% of the time.. buuuuuuuuuuut like I say, I am by no means rigid - I was eating cake batter yesterday (and damn it was good haha!) I try to eat as best as I possibly can during the week, and save my poor choices for the weekend. Generally on the weekend though, we’ll only have brunch and dinner and maybe a snack in between, so I figure I can get away with it!

Happy Monday!

Clean Eating: Fruity Chia Puddings!

Sunday, 31 August 2014
What a weekend it has been! We traveled up to Newcastle yesterday to celebrate our friend getting married! The ceremony and reception were great, and so very, VERY them. It was a great night and we were also able to catch up with some old friends too!
Today is the last day of winter in Australia... cue sighing. Just when all the Americans are getting excited about 'Fall' and pumpkin everything... our temperature will start climbing. I have a love-hate relationship spring because of hayfever. But what can you do! (other than start a winter countdown, or pretend it's autumn/winter and continue to wear leggings and jeans and boots until it gets so hot you can't get your jeans on properly...)

In my bid to get back on the clean eating bandwagon, I've been trying to experiment with breakfast noms. If I had my way, I'd just eat toast every day with avocado or butter and vegemite... but I try to use breakfast as a starting point for the day, to fuel my body until lunch time and to be really darn tasty and easy to eat at work.
A go-to breakfast of mine is usually overnight oats in a jar (or "ooiaj" as the kids these days call it.) I love chia seeds. I love oats. I really, really like ooiaj, but I also some times really, really don't like ooiaj. But it's super easy to make the night before and tote to work in the morning - and if you've been reading along, you know by now that I like to be efficient lazy. But lately, oy the oats >.<

To solve my dilemma, the last few days I've been making chia pudding for breakfast instead! PUDDING FOR BREAKFAST! Healthy pudding. Uhhuh. You heard me. And delicious pudding. I'm still working with it, but here it goes.
Basic recipe, serves 2. You'll need:
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • 1 small banana, approx 75gr
  • 5-6 strawberries, approx 100gr
  • Blueberries, 60gr
  • Plain, full fat organic yoghurt, 100gr
  • 1 heaped tablespoon of chia seeds, 20gr
  • 1 heaped teaspoon of a seed/nut mix, 10gr
  • Granola for serving, 50gr (optional)

Method:
  • Peel banana, roughly chop strawberries and add to a bowl along with the blueberries
  • Give the fruit mix a rough mash with a fork, then add the lemon juice
  • Mash some more, popping the blueberries, and let the mix sit for 10 minutes to give the lemon juice time to macerate the fruit
  • Add the yoghurt, chia and seed & nut mix, and mix well - nobody like chunky chia lumps in their pudding!
  • Pour mix into 2 bowls / containers / whatever you like, and leave in the fridge to plump up. The longer you leave it, the more pudding-like it gets. I leave mine anywhere from overnight to 48 hours!
  • Add granola just before serving, if you'd like a bit of crunch

The result: a deeeeeeeelicious, quick and easy breakfast. I make 2 at a time, so I can be lazy some more. You can use whatever fruit combo you like, but you may need to add in more liquid if you're using fruits like apple. I've just made a batch for the next 2 days and I've added in mango instead of blueberries - super versatile!

I hope you enjoy, and please feel free to share your favourite chia pudding recipe if you stop on by (hell, even if it's savoury dinner type chia pudding.. I'll go there!)

Who has two thumbs and is a slacker? This girl!

Thursday, 28 August 2014
Oh dear. I’ve been away for quite some time now, haven’t I. And I was going so well!

Needless to say, in the lead up to my holiday I was ridiculously busy trying to get things finished before we left – particularly at work! I’m home now though, and can get back into the habit!
Well, many habit’s really. Back to work, back to clean eating, back to blogging, back to doing exciting things (but not as exciting as international travel.. woe is me!) My focus will be clean eating at first though, because I miiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight’ve put on a couple of kg’s while I was away – might’ve. I’m not sure. I’m not about to step on a scale. Whether I’ve gained weight or not, I feel really ‘blegh’ with all the not-so-great food choices I’ve been making.

Here’s how I am going to help myself get back on the wagon and feeling good again!

Meal Planning
  • I actually love to plan my meals for the week. It takes the “thinking” out of eating.
  • I plan my breakfasts, lunches and dinner. Don’t get me wrong – stuff changes. Sometimes, I just don’t feel like whatever I’ve planned for that night, so I make something else with what I’ve got. I am by no means rigid about my menu.
  • One more thing I love about meal planning is that it helps me plan my grocery shop too! Like above, if there’s veggies that aren’t available, or there’s something on sale, I will tweak as I go along. But meal planning really helps me stick to what I actually need to get, instead of going willy-nilly or being forgetful, or having to make elevenyhundred more trips to the grocery store. It also saves me money!

Meal Prep
  • More “taking the thinking out of eating”. I measure, weigh and pre-pack as much as I possibly can for breakfast and lunch, and enter it into MyFitnessPal – I don’t always track my caloric intake, but I find it helps to do this when I’m getting back into it. Sort of like a refresher! It also helps with portion control *cough*
  • When it comes to dinner, I chop up veggies I’ll need for the week, and put them in separate snaplock bags to keep them fresh - and super easy to get at (and a MASSIVE time saver I think!)
  • If I need to, I’ll saute a batch of greens on Sunday to save more time during the week
  • Ditto for any quinoa or rice I will need for the first half of the week

Reduce (natural) Sugar Intake
  • When I follow eat clean, it cuts out all of the added sugar in my diet anyway but because I’ve been off the wagon, I’m also like to reduce my natural sugar consumption (fruit, honey, maple syrup etc.) Reduce, not cut out completely. Fruit is my bae!
  • To cope with my sugar cravings, I use herbal tea to get me through! Pukka make some amazing teas, and to get me through my sweet sweet withdrawals I love their mint green tea (spearmint instead of peppermint for once!), and “cleanse” which is organic nettle, fennel and peppermint. One of my favourites from T2 is French earl grey – it’s so floral and lovely!
  • Sarah Wilson’s ‘I Quit Sugar’ recipe books are going to come in handy for this part as well! Especially when I want gummi bears (oh gummi bears I love you sooooo so much!)

Decrease Coffee & Alcohol Consumption
  • Because I’m back at work, I will be back into my large-long-black-coffee every morning routine. There was a while there where I would also have another in the afternoon so I’ll be making sure I stick to my one a day, maximum!
  • In lieu of my extra coffee hit, I will be bringing in off the bench my vast array of herbal, black and green teas! I know, I know, black and green still contain caffeine – but they also have many health benefits (and don’t keep me awake at night!)
  • Prior to going on holiday, and during our holiday, I was a bit liberal with my booze-hound ways! I’ll be limiting drinking to 2 nights a week, no more than 4 drinks. (with the caveat of: I totally have a wedding to go to this weekend soooooooooooooo that "4" will probably be bottles, not glasses :))

For the 'OMGCRRRAAAAVVVVINGS Will Power, pleeease stay strong!' Moments
  • At first – and this is for my own damn good! – I stop taking money to work. I keep enough cash on me only for my morning coffee, and take out my cards. That way, I eat what I have toted in for lunch, and force myself to have a nice cup of herbal tea instead of, y'know, kettle chips and gummi bears (or a jar of Fluff.)
  • This not only applies to indulging in my food cravings I’m trying to kick, but seeing as I just went on holidays and spent a pantload of money, my savings account enjoys this immensely!

And lastly; I am not perfect. I am not going to always make the best food choice, but I will make a conscious decision, an informed decision, on my consumption. I will try my hardest to nourish my body with everything is needs and not wants, but I will not persecute myself for having an extra glass of red, or some marshmallows! "Everything in moderation, including moderation" as Julia Childs once said.

Coming up soon will be blog posts on our travel experiences! I can't wait. I'm going to do city by city (so that they don't turn into RIDICULOUSLY long posts.) Hopefully they will be useful to someone. In the meantime, I'll make sure I share some quick and easy clean meals I like. If you have any tips or tricks you use to get back on the band wagon, I’d love to hear them. I’ll take whatever I can get!

Skincare Faves!

Tuesday, 8 July 2014
Since entering my 30's, I've become ever so sliiiiiightly obsessed with taking care of my skin. More so really in the last 6 months. I am all about hydration! And my skin is loving me for it. My skin is (mostly) blemish free, translucent and so soft with minimal wrinkles (3 on my forehead, I can live with that!)

Before we get into it, I have dry/oily skin, prone to acne (well, I used to be anyway!)

When i was a teenager, I GREAT skin. I got a few pimples here and there, one mainly on the side of my nose (awkward) but for the most part, I never had much issue. So lucky.
Queue my 20's and horrible, horrible skin. Well, really, it started when I was 19. I was partying ALOT. Drinking, smoking (so naughty), a horrible diet in conjunction with shift work and therefore a very shitty sleeping pattern. My face was a mess. I started getting cystic acne on my cheeks, constant breakouts on my forehead and chin. I remember having a pimple on my cheek so bad that one of the older ladies at work asked me if I had been bitten by a mosquito on my face. Nope, just a pimple (and how rude by the way!)

My solution at the time? Dry the shit out of my face. Use all the acne products! I went through proactiv, murad, clearasil, benzac, mario badescu.. All of them. And while they worked for a time, I was in a constant uphill battle with my skin. I was sad. I just wanted to not have a pizza on my forehead, and stop having big sore pimples on my jawline and chin. Any time I ran out of my flavour-of-the-month-acne-killer "moisturiser", I would just use the plain old pink olay moisturiser, or johnson and johnson... I always thought it really weird how my skin would turn so lovely when I started using these. heh. And then stupidly back to my dry dry drying routine I went (yeah, it took a while for the penny to drop...) By this time, I was in my very late 20's and just pissed off.

It was time to start making changes.
  • Hydration: The drying didn't work, so I tried the exact opposite, ALL THE MOISTURE! I started using rich creams, serums and oils, basically just not drying the shit out of my face any longer. I also focused on my water intake, aiming for 3 litres every day. I also started using an active charcoal mask - every third day when my skin was purging, and now around 1-2 times a week.
  • Diet: I had started clean eating as a way to lose some more weight, but the improvement my diet had on my skin, I can't even begin to explain. Pimples just went, and didn't come back. I know now if I eat too much shitty processed foods, drink too much alcohol or even just don't drink as much water as I should, it literally shows up all over my face. Like, really really.I'd love to tell you how much I exercise and how wonderful it is and has been for my skin and blah blah blah.... Truth be told, I get a lot of incidental exercise, but I've been really lazy over the last 6 months and I don't actually do any intentional exercise (I really need to get back on that band wagon!)
  • Future Proofing: More recently, as I've been freaking out a little about looking old, and I've started to incorporate chemical exfoliants (AHA's and BHA's) and physical sunscreen into my skincare routine - thanks Zoe Foster Blake for making all the sense, and scaring the shit out me I've now started reaping the benefits of those bad boys (and so has the back of my hands, just FYI - no wrinkly old looking hands here!)  
The PTR and Origins are my #1's in terms of fighting any pimple that dare show it's ugly head! Everything else is very much focused on keeping my skin hydrated, wrinkle free and decongested. 

Daily Routine - Night
  • Cleanse with Ren cleansing balm
  • After shower, apply a mix of Kiehls Midnight Recovery Concentrate and Trilogy rosehip oil to my face and neck area, and allow to absorb (I usually moisturise my body during this time.) Sometimes I add in a drop of the Fabulous Face oil if pimples are looming
  • Follow with Kiehls ultra facial cream

Daily Routine - Morning
  • Wash face with warm water and face cloth
  • Apply a mix of Nuxe dry oil and Aesop Fabulous Face oil to my face and neck area, and allow to absorb (I usually get my clothes ready for work)
  • Follow with Kiehls ultra facial cream and allow to absorb
  • Apply sunscreen - because I use a physical sunscreen, I can apply at this point. For chemical sunscreen you'll need to apply it first. To learn more, check out Zoe's/Fruity Beauty's great blog post on the matter
  • Makeup and what not as usual
Twice a week I switch up my nighttime routine - it tends to be the night I was my hair. I cleanse with Kiehls ultra facial cleanser, apply my origins mask when I get out of the shower and leave that on until it dries, dries like a glam glow mask! I leave it for as long as possible. Once removed, I do my chemical exfoliation - to my face, neck and backs of hands! Then go through my oil & moisturising combo.

Here's a quick before and after. The top row is me, at 8:30pm with the remaining make up of the day on. The bottom is me, post shower and nighttime routine. I tried as best as I could to match the lighting.
Excuse the creepo leering looks... O_O
This is in indirect light in my bathroom. I have a leftover blemish or 2 from my whoremoans, booooo!
Selfie in the bathroom, like all the cool kids do!
And here's how hot I look with my Origins mask on, awwwwwww yeah baby! (Have scared the shit out of boyfriend with this before...)
All the gross pore stuff! I love this mask, so, so, SO GOOD.
I'd love to hear your experiences and go to products for keeping your skin lovely! Any tips on good ways to keep the wrinkles away are also very much appreciated!

Prepping for the week - Food edition!

Sunday, 6 July 2014
How is it that Sunday always rolls around so quickly?!

We've had a pretty nice weekend though. Saturday was spent at the farmers market in the morning, followed by lunch (and quite a few wines) with my best friend from high school and her husband. Sunday was much the same! Up early again to watch Netherlands vs. Costa Rica in the World Cup with our friends, GOOOOOO ORANJE! We finally backed a winner! And then a quick nap before watching the UFC. What a weekend for sport! Rousey got it done in 1 seconds and Weidman defends his title again! great matches.

Normally on Sunday I like to prep for the week ahead - and this generally goes to plan, unless the World Cup is on! I made more of an effort this weekend though, especially seeing as I had a lot of wonderful produce from the farmers market. Seriously, the golden beetroots I bought are the freaking size of softballs! We're going to be eating beetroot for the week. And let's not forget the beetroot tops...
 Saturday I did a little prep; washed all the veggies, cup up the beet stalks, beet tops and cavolo nero then stewed some rhubarb with strawberries, cinnamon, cloves, ginger, orange peel and honey. Sunday afternoon I spent roasting and saute-ing!

Raspberries, stewed rhubarb & strawberries, topped with Greek yoghurt, and granola/muesli for crunch!

I got some more awesome granola from Farmer Jo on the weekend, and with all the stewed rhubarb and strawberries I now have on hand, overnight oats are pretty much out of the question this week! I decided yoghurt, a few raspberries and the stewed rhubarb and strawberry mix, topped with muesli or granola would be my go-to breakfast for the week!

Seedless mandi's and sourdough sammiches!
Normally in winter I am all about soup for lunch. I love, love, LOVE  hot lunch in winter. Lately, I've been missing sandwiches. I thought maybe I could do a soup and sandwich combo.. but that seems like a lot of effort just for lunch! Instead, I got a nice big loaf of sourdough, a few avocados, some free range turkey breast meat and ham off the bone, and my favourite seedless mandarins from the market!
I've already made my first 2 days sandwiches - I really needed to use an avocado I bought last weekend. To make sure the avo didn't turn brown, I mixed it with a little lemon juice, salt and pepper. With my turkey sandwich, I added a little mayo (dirty little addiction right there!), dijon mustard and cheese, and then just a plain old ham and avocado sandwich. Lunch = sorted.

Roasted pork, saute greens, roasted beetroot, sweet potato, fennel & apple!
Because of all the greens we've got, I'm going to have to be pretty inventive! I get fairly lazy during the week, so today I sauteed zucchini, beet stalks, fresh garlic, beet tops and cavolo nero in butter, and seasoned with salt and pepper. I also roasted the golden beets and a sweet potato. Nothing special here, just a little olive oil, salt and pepper. They'll all make easy sides, and I think I can get a little inventive with them all, without having to spend too much time cooking!
I bought quite a large piece of pork for dinner, and roasted it as well. I mainly bought the pork because I got some baby fennel's from the market! And what is pork without apple sauce?! I don't particularly like the jarred stuff (sugar explosion!) so I roasted 2 pink lady apples alongside my fennel. Soooooo much more delicious than apple sauce in a jar, and all I did was sprinkle a little lemon juice over before popping in the oven! Easy roast dinner leftovers for Monday, and we will easily have enough pork for Tuesday dinner, and maybe Wednesday too!

It seems like a lot of effort to cook and prep food for the week, and maybe sort of a waste of a Sunday, but I like to think of it this way: when I get home from work, I will probably only spend 20minutes in the kitchen, if that, and dinner will be ready! I'll happily give up some of my Sunday afternoon for that!

What are you tips and tricks for getting ready for the week ahead?

Breakfast Love

Thursday, 3 July 2014
I love breakfast, it's one of my very favourite meals of the day. Probably because I like eating, and it's always the first opportunity I get. I love traditional breakfast foods, sure, but I also don't mind getting down with a bowl of noodles for breakfast, leftover sauté veggies, leftover dinner....

Ok, so I'll pretty much eat anything for breakfast :)

During the week, I try to keep my breakfasts super easy, but they have to be super tasty. I get bored otherwise, and also feel like I've been robbed of a chance to eat something delicious. I thought I'd share a few easy and clean breakfasts that I like to have on a regular basis!

Go-to breakfasts
  • Overnight Oats: my recipe is a heaped 1/4c oats, 1 tbsp chia seeds, 3 tbsp plain Greek organic yoghurt, water/milk to get it the consistency I like. I use this as my base and have a few combos I enjoy, like roasted sweet potato & cinnamon, roasted pumpkin with pumpkin pie spices, frozen mixed berries, honey and cinnamon, cottage cheese and black pepper (I tend to leave the yoghurt out of this combo!) Sometimes I get a little wild and top my oats with Farmer Jo's awesome muesli.. oats on oats!
  • Sourdough Toast: all the toppings! Avocado, tomato, salt & pepper, avocado and vegemite, avocado, salt, pepper & sriracha, roasted sweet potato & cinnamon, nut butter & salt, baby spinach and boiled egg
  • Smoothies: I love to make smoothie packs and keep them in the freezer, that way all I have to add is yoghurt and/or liquid and I'm set. I have a George Foreman mix & go. God damn that thing is AWESOME. It was such a pain in the ass using my blender each day. One of my favourite books for smoothie recipes is Harley Pasternak's 'Body Reset Diet'. This book also really helped me understand what I was putting into my body, how much, why I was hungry etc. A very insightful read, and even if you don't follow the diet, I think it's got a lot of good info in there.
Speaking of smoothies, maybe it's about time I shared another one? Here it is! I hope you like it :)

Recipe: Super Easy Almond Milk!

Monday, 30 June 2014
There are many people out and about touting how damn easy it is to make Almond Milk.

Add mine name to the list, please.

Oh, I was skeptical at first "how could this be!? Soaking, blending, squeezing? Ugh. Too-much-effort pile". Well, I'm happy to announce that I'm rather silly in more ways than one. Homemade almond milk doesn't even TASTE like the bollocks you buy. I mean, it tastes like almonds. EXACTLY LIKE ALMONDS. Like, you've chewed up a bunch of almonds in your mouth, almonds. Not the faux stuff they sell you in the stores (but, for the record, Inside Out Nutritious Goods make almond milk for retail sale that is just like homemade and it's gorgeous.)

There are no additives in this stuff. Read the carton next time you buy almond milk, you might be surprised at the amount of extra stuff they put in there. My recipe is purely water and almonds. Sure, you can fancy it up with dates, vanilla, cinnamon.. whatever you like really, but I'm a simple gal and I love the taste of plain almonds. If you are looking for a sweeter/flavoured recipe, I very much encourage you to go and check out Tracy's (aka Shutterbean) recipe for Vanilla Almond milk! She is actually the reason I took the plunge to finally make my own - thanks Tracy!

Alright, get on with it. Here we go!

You'll Need:
  • 1 1/2 cups raw almonds (the fresher the better)
  • 1 pint jar
  • Colander
  • Water
  • A bottle to store your milk (you can re-use the jar if you like!)
  • Blender
  • Nut milk bag (so, SO many jokes...)
  • A bowl to strain your milk into
  • A funnel
Depending on how creamy you like your milk, this will make anywhere from 600ml - 1lt (a pint or 2.)

How To:
  1. Put your almonds in the jar, fill with cold water (approx 400ml - 500ml), pop the lid on, give it a bit of a shake and allow them to soak overnight.
  2. Drain your almonds into the colander, and rinse thoroughly with cool, clean water. Yes, that water turns GROSS in no time, right?! If you sample an almond at this point, they will feel slippery and almost squidgy when you bite into it.
  3. Once rinsed, add your almonds to your blender
  4. Add in approx 500ml of cold (preferably filtered) water.  500ml is a good starting point. Some people like their almond milk really creamy, others like it a tad on the watery side. I am a creamy girl.
  5. Blend away, BZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ! Blend, blend, blend until your almonds are no longer chunks, and you have a creamy/milky consistency. You might like to add more water, and give it another blitz. Totally up to you.
  6. Put your nut milk bag (heh) into your bowl, with the top open.
  7. Pour the contents of the blender into the nut milk bag
  8. Here's where you might need to get your muscles out; pull the nut milk bag closed and squeeeeeeeeeeze all of that almond pulp to get the milk out! Sometimes I do a good 10min of squeezing, hang the bag over the bowl on a wooden spoon while I go and eat gummi bears and let it rest for 15 minutes or so, before coming back for more squeezing
  9. Once you've squeezed out all the almond milk you possibly can, return the milk to your jar, or fancy new bottle, and voila! You have your very own FRESH almond milk! Give it a taste, I bet you it's amazing!
Here are a few step by step pictures of the entire process to help you along.

Now, you can use any type of nut you like. I had a few leftover raw cashews, so I added them in to my last batch. It all depends on what you like.
Others have also soaked their almonds for up to 2 days and said they got a creamier milk.... that really wasn't the case for me; one day was just right.
I love to use almond milk in smoothies, all kinds of oats and in baking too! The leftover pulp is actually almond meal, and can be dried out and used for other recipes.

I'd love to hear how you went, and any of your favourite flavour combos! I promise I will be a bit more adventurous with my almond milk one day... :)
