Shopping with Shirley from Frequently Eats

Hiya! I’m Shirley, the girl behind the Instagram account Frequently Eats. I am completely obsessed with creating colourful, healthy, beautiful smoothies, salads and snacks. I believe in making a difference in our environment by eating plant-based foods, seasonal produce and reducing our footprint by using less plastic and more cruelty-free products.

Give us an idea of your average breakfast, lunch, and dinner?

-For breakfast, I usually go for a smoothie of some kind or a simple bowl of coconut yogurt (I love to make my own coconut yogurt!) and fruits. I like to keep bananas, strawberries and home-made granola ready for throwing together in the mornings.

-For lunch, I usually have a bowl of soup. I am a huge soup lover and love to get my daily serving of veggies in at lunch-time. If it’s too warm for soup, I usually go for a salad. Any goes here! I throw together couscous, tomatoes, cucumber, beans, corn and feta for a whatever-I-have-in-the-fridge kind of meal.

-Dinner is dependent on the night and what I am craving at the time. If it were up to me, I would make a veggie lasagne every single night.

You feel like some bread, what is your go to type?

Carbs are life! It’s so hard to choose just one type. I usually reach for a ciabatta though, they are doughy and crunchy at the same time and perfect for just about anything- toasties, soup dunking, crostini’s you name it!

Let’s be honest, Pizza is life. What toppings are you going with?

Always spinach and feta. If I’m switching it up- then olives and feta (and tons of garlic obviously!).

What is the thing you know is a luxury but splurge on when buying groceries.

Almond milk. It’s one of those very expensive kinds of milk and usually, I know I could just buy soy milk, but my evening chai lattes just aren’t the same without almond milk!
