Loving Yourself and Weightloss

“Love yourself first and everything else falls into line.” ~Lucille Ball As I sat on my bedroom floor almost in tears that night, surrounded by all the clothes I’d just tried on before a night out with my friends, the same thoughts replayed through my mind. You’re fat, you’re ugly, and you’re disgusting for letting yourself […]

No Bake Malteser Bars

Happy Monday! I have had lots of requests to share this recipe since I posted it on Instagram on Fathers Day so here it is! Maltesers are a favourite for both my dad and my father in law (to be), so I thought instead of the usual packet of Maltesers as an additional present for […]

My Message To You

…Yes You! Love yourself. Make peace with who you are and where you are at this moment in time.  Listen to your heart. If you can’t hear what it’s saying in this noisy world, make time for yourself. Enjoy your own company. Let your mind wander among the stars.  Try. Take chances. Make mistakes. Life can be messy and […]

Battling With FOOD

Like many of us women, I was introduced to diet “tricks” and “hacks” at a young age. In my case, that was around twelve to thirteen years old. I browsed magazines and watched films that constantly reminded me about the importance of dieting, losing weight, and looking skinny. As a self-conscious teenager, I began to […]

2-Ingredient Banana Pancakes

These pancakes are bananas!  No, I mean they are literally made from bananas. And eggs. Eggs and bananas, and that’s it. I can see that look you’re giving me right now, but you just have to trust. These two ingredients, whisked together and given a little skillet love, are truly something magical. Don’t believe me? […]

For the Love of Food

Don’t eat food that makes your body feel bad. Only eat food that makes you feel good mentally and physically. How often do we eat foods because our brains and our taste buds want them, but then we feel awful afterwards?  We promise ourselves that we won’t do it again, but sure enough, sooner or later […]

The Joy of Eating

In our diet-obsessed society we’ve been taught to view food as a necessary evil, a nuisance, the thing to blame for the scale not budging, the thing we can’t have. The forbidden fruit. Or we’ve been taught to view food in a more neutral light: as fuel. Strictly as a source of nutrients, vitamins, protein, fiber. Fuel […]

Sweet Potatoes VS. White Potatoes

Firstly, potatoes – the beige variety – are not the devil. When baked and paired with some protein, or boiled and rolled in herbs and a little olive oil, they can provide a satisfying simple meal. However there is a reason the humble spud does not enjoy the superfood status of the sweet variety. To […]
