It’s summer. It’s hot. Hot summer life is far too fleeting to spend ages in the kitchen but also one of the worst times to resort to cruddy over-salted convenience food too. I try to counteract the burgers and ice creams is by making up a couple of substantial salads to keep in the fridge […]Read More Easy Quinoa Salad
A couple of weeks ago a Facebook marketing pop up got the better of me and I clicked on a random ad for Purition- a wholefood based protein supplement that various sinister AI cookies decided I might like. I was maybe hungry, I was maybe vulnerable to suggestion and I was definitely sick of the […]Read More Trial and Purition.
I’m out for a treat lunch with some ladies today so a light breakfast option was in order. I always feel like a bit of a effort on breakfast at the weekend, as quite simply I have time to do something more than throw some PB on a bit of toast whilst simultaneously drying my […]Read More The Skinny Thing- Banana Pancakes
Last week I read a very amusing article on BS slimming fads and how almost all celebrity fronted diet books feature some kind of chilli spiked eggs for breakfast. I was thus reminded about my much mused but never materialised intentions to do some huevos rancheros for Saturday breakfast at some point in my life. […]Read More Shakshuka. Sort of.

*sweary rant warning* So, after banging on about how I had the hang of smartpoints finally and Weight Watchers was no longer making me want to periodically hang myself, the buggers went and changed it all. All legit plan followers- so those using the official app or attending group sessions- will have been introduced to […]Read More The Skinny Thing- Flex Off!
read the first part here I have to start with both a disclaimer and an apology on this challenge report, which is some weeks late now. In my defense, I extended the period to two weeks as basically I wasn’t sure that anything had had the chance to change in just seven days. In further […]Read More The ACV Challenge- The Write Up.
Unsurprisingly, living without a kitchen for just over a week whilst having one set of parental units staying and the other set on standby for a blow out birthday lunch has not resulted in me having a good loss to report. If you aren’t cooking for yourself, accurately calculating weight watchers points is nigh […]Read More A Month of Mondays- Pass the lettuce!
I have less than zero motivation to get this post written, which is why it is probably more important than the ones I actually want to do. My week on the Weight Watchers wagon went really well, for as long as it was actually The Week and not The Week’s sexy older sister The Weekend, […]Read More A Month Of Mondays- Death By Hangover
I’ve done OK since we last checked in on my weight loss thing. By OK, I mean I haven’t put any weight on. In fact I don’t think my weight has moved more than about half a kilo either way since June. This is surprising, as I have had some seriously bingey DGAF periods […]Read More The Skinny Thing: A Month Of Mondays.
