Mini Banana, Blueberry and Chia Muffin Recipe

I am really struggling to keep my girls occupied this school holidays. They seem to do something for about ten minutes at a time if I am lucky, then they’ll want to do something else. P2 seems really into baking at the moment so I have tried to do as much as I can. I also wanted some really healthy …

Peanut Butter Overnight Oats Recipe

My friend introduced me to overnight oats a while ago but it has taken me months to find the courage to actually try them for myself. In fact at first I couldn’t imagine them to be very appetising at all but that’s because I am a very visual eater and also very picky with my porridge in particular. Now I …

Chocolate & Chia Seeds Overnight Oats Recipe

I don’t own a full length mirror. I’m not tall enough to see into our bathroom one and so I put up with a hand held one for my makeup in a poorly lit hall way. That’s how I dress myself each morning, relying on a quick glimpse in a shop window to double check I actually look half decent …

My Sunday Photo 2016 – #18/52

We haven’t done a massive food shop in such a long time. We seem to have got into the habit of just going to our local supermarket for meals for that day or the next few days. Which was working fine but with our recent holiday the food cupboards had got quite bare. The kids were demanding food constantly and …

A Weight Loss Motivation Boost

I am now 3 weeks into my weight loss journey. My main goal wasn’t really to eat healthier but to eat less. Like the saying goes “everything in moderation”. I planned to cut my portions by half and stick to eating 1,000 calories a day. A big thing for me to cut was the biscuits. During the first week I …
