Sticks and stones

We are all told that little rhyme when we are growing up. It’s meant to keep us safe from mean words.  Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me.  It’s great in theory but it’s a lie. Words can hurt horrendously.  It’s an obvious thing really. Don’t use the n-word…

My GM Diet/Detox Experiment

As anyone who knows me or has seen my photo knows,  I carry a few extra lbs on my frame.  Or rather a lot.  Depending on which photo you have seen!  Currently however, my weight has rocketed and I don’t like it at all.  I am uncomfortable and unhappy and so I decided I needed…

3 Day Juice Cleanse – Day 2

7.30am – Snuggle back down into duvet as no breakfast making means longer lay in. 7.45am – Go waste time in the shower. 8.00am – Start Juice 1 shots. 8.01am – Get pleasant surprise that the juice tastes better today. 8.23am – Have last shot.

3 Day Juice Cleanse – Day One

Day One 8.00am – The Boy has charged off to Freshii in an excited whir to pick up our juices. 8.01am – Decide to hide in the shower for a bit longer. 8.15am – He is back and I’m getting nagged to come and have breakfast. 8.16am – I hate this week already. 8.20am – My…

3 Day Juice Cleanse

The Boy and I have decided that our cuddly bits are getting a bit too fluffy.  We are constantly falling on and off the diet wagon.  Mostly off to be fair.  It’s very nice being with someone who understands weight issues (he is the 2015 Mr. winner chap for his SW group), but it also…

Cajun Turkey Pasta

Quite some time ago, I found a delicious recipe for Cajun chicken pasta that was Slimming World friendly. I made it and it was as tasty as it sounded. When thinking about what to cook for dinner last night this popped into my head. Do you think I could find that recipe anywhere? Nope. Not…

Walden Farms vs Choc Shot

This is a very short post because there is no debate in my mind…. Walden Farms Chocolate Syrup kicks Sweet Freedom’s Choc Shot ass.  It isn’t as watery and it has a better and less synthetic chocolate taste. I can’t compare any other flavours because this is the

Chilly Enough For Chili

Yeah… I am lame, but that made me snigger! Dubai has recently been gong through a bit of a winter period.  Thankfully it is only about 1 month of the year, but this year seemed extra long and worse than normal.  I don’t know if that is because I’ve been here longer or because it…

Pancake Day Yummy-ness!!

I wonder how many hundreds of blog posts have been published in the last 24hrs about pancakes?!  A fair few I would imagine.  I know my reader is full of them.  Why?  Because Pancake Day is amazing! Of course it’s actually called Shrove Tuesday and is the day before Lent, which starts on Ash Wednesday. The…

Vegetable Egg Bake

When The Boy and I first started dating, I decided that I would make a roasted vegetable egg bake.  We had Roast Beef for dinner the night before and there was a bunch of veggies left over.  This is one of my favourite things to do with leftover roasted veggies.  It turns out it was…
