Sunday, Supplements and Summer Rolls

I gave up caffeine years ago, but I still really enjoy a mug of bitter barley coffee or decaf.
Much to my surprise, so does she.
Been craving summer rolls since I saw them last week on Oh Dear Drea. My fillings were tofu, grated carrot and turnip (I love turnips so much, especially raw), basil and mint, greens from the farmer's market and sprouts.

They turned out rather beautifully if I may say so myself! Not suited to today's weather, but I wanted them BADLY. A little fiddly, but fun and not at all difficult to make.
And lastly, I'm in love with our new Omega oil. I took a DHA supplement derived from algae during pregnancy and the first year of breastfeeding, and I would again, but it's quite expensive and in tablet form. So, I have been on the lookout for an Omega 3 supplement that we can all have (especially the babe), that is easy to take and doesn't taste bad. A helpful nutritionist at Whole Foods recommended this oil, and I'm so glad she did! It has a mild nutty flavour that I don't find offensive in the least - we have it on our porridge for breakfast. The ingredients look wonderful, and it isn't too dear. Win, win, win.
