Vegan & gluten free Florentine

I have the biggest sweet tooth on the planet. I absolutely love a cup of tea with a piece of chocolate or a biscuit – or even better a brownie! It’s one of my biggest weaknesses when it comes to trying to lose weight, but since I discovered how to make these little babies I…

Tough week, but soldiering on

It really has been a tough week this week. On top of dealing with the fact I have a mouth condition that will affect me for the rest of my life (Oral Lichen Planus) the pain has become almost unbearable. On the recommendation of the doctor who told me that I HAD to up my…

Day 2 – gluten and dairy free

Day two of eating gluten and dairy free and so far so good – well I say dairy free, I have had a splash of milk in my morning cup of tea, but that’s it, so relatively diary free. Last night I made the most delicious meal and I am so annoyed at myself for…

Oral Lichen Planus

I’ve recently been diagnosed with Oral Lichen Planus; a form of mouth disease which basically effects your entire throat. I honestly have never been in so much pain. I first started suffering with my mouth about five years ago when I used to get ulcers everywhere – on my tongue, down my windpipe, in my…

Cheap vs Expensive Wine – Episode 1

In the first in the series, I explore the difference between cheap and expensive wine, trying a Sauvignon blanc from Lidl at the cost of £3.89 with a more expensive one from Co-Op for £8.50…As an avid white wine drinker, I should be able to tell the difference between a cheap and expensive brand…but can…

Monday Meal Prep

I was naughty at the weekend. I confess – I had wine, grilled halloumi, a Chinese takeaway and a Harvester…No wonder I can’t shift the pounds…So that’s it, starting today I am ‘back on it’ and it all starts with meal prep. In order to kick start the week in the right way (remembering my…

Gorgeous girly

Sometimes it really is the simple things in life that are the best. Take this photo for example – taken in our garden today with my gorgeous niece Sienna we did nothing really except sit and enjoy the Saturday sun and it makes you really think about what makes you happy in life and when…

All or nothing

Is anyone else a bit like me? Have an all or nothing attitude. I wish I wasn’t like this I really do, but for some reason there is a part of me that thinks ‘if I’m going to be good, I’m going to be really good – unbreakable in fact’ which in theory works well,…

Avo-good breakfast (get it?)

I love avocados. That’s it…bye! Only kidding…lol I don’t think I even had tried an avocado till a few years ago, which is terrible really when you think I’ve been a veggie since I was seven years old. They contain the best fats you can have, which of course are essential for everyday health and…

Feeling good is more important than looking good.

I went to a wedding on the weekend which is where the below and featured photos were taken and it was such a lovely day, but sometimes it’s only when a photo is taken do you see how differently you look compared to a year or two years ago. This is me with my husband…
