Breakfast Burrito

After a weekend of binge eating (and the shock of getting weighed this morning) it is time for me to be good again, otherwise I will just continue to get fatter and fatter – and fatter again. I knew it would be a bad gain.  I also knew that I would feel like shit about it…

Announcement: Change of Service

This blog started as a way to keep people up to date with my travels as I left Bermuda and eventually moved to Dubai.  Then it was to show people around Dubai as I adventured.  Then it mostly just turned into restaurant reviews because eating my way around is how I discover new places! Well,…

Love in a Box!

On top of a wonderful (if rather alcohol saturated) day with my best friend, (explanation here) the lovely Ian came to join us and bought me a gift from The Counter, of which he is the co-owner! Amongst (is that a real word or did I just make it up?) a whole host of amazing…

Learning Stuff!

The day after our epic food tour, my friend invited me over to his house to learn stuff!  During the course of the day, we had been discussing how I can bake certain things but others I really lack the practice and know-how. It was perfectly timed because he was making cookies in advance of…

Dinner Chez Ian

After a full afternoon of eating our way around Johannesburg, I naturally needed more food!  So, my lovely friend Ian cooked us the best nachos I’ve had in an absolute age! I think the tell of a good chef is when you can make something simple but so good.  Anyone can fancy up a dish to…

New Year, New Start… again!

NB: This is a rambley post, mostly so I remember what I have done!! After an excessive amount of food and alcohol over November and December, I have decided to bite the bullet and join Slimming World Online, again. Why was it 2 months of over-indulgence and not just the regular 1 month?!  Well, there…

Greek Quinoa

Have you tried Quinoa yet?  If not, you really should! Quinoa is a gluten free “ancient grain”.  It is a really good source of protein, fiber and iron.  It has a bunch of essential amino acids, which are great for weight loss.  It’s also super trendy at the moment for some reason. I am not…

Strange Omelette

Have you ever read Whoopi Goldberg’s book, “Book“?   It’s an autobiography, but written in the funniest way possible.  It’s in my top 3 books of all time, which for those of you who know me, is an indication of how good it is!  I have read far too many books, if there is such a…

Kicking Healthy

I went to see a nutritionist the other day as part of my ongoing treatment for my stomach issues.  Where I have been so ill for the last few months, I am missing out on valuable nutrients or something.  There was a big explanation from my doctor about it.  I switched off after a while….

Spaghetti Squash, Part 2

Yes… this is going to turn into a 4 part series!  I can only eat half a squash in one dinner! So, last night I had half a spaghetti squash to play with, and didn’t want to do the same recipe again.  That would be boring and I am not boring – in the kitchen anyway!…
