I love a bit of 5-A-Day action from my local greengrocers Bumbles, and they are with us this week to answer the most burning questions that life/this blog has to offer. Are you ready? 1: Describe what you without being boring? We are purveyors of the finest fruit & vegetables aka Greengrocers 2: What’s great about […]Read More 20 Questions with Bumbles!
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 remember seeing chard mentioned on Masterchef increasingly frequently and assuming it was about to become the next go-to-food-twat ingredient taking the supermarket by storm. That was a while ago, as it’s been at least two years since I have paid any attention to Masterchef and I am still yet to recall a single incident […]Read More Are You Going To Eat…..Chard?
It’s been a bit of a week on the diet front, where various employment obligations and personal weaknesses have meant living off of a staple feed of severely low effort food that was either cooked by someone else or merely assembled then covered with cheese in my kitchen. I’ve been busy and knackered and in […]Read More The Skinny Thing: Oven Fried Chicken
Does anyone know a fat vegan? You’re sniggering now and waiting for the punchline but really, I want to know. Do you know an un-skinny (long term) vegan? I thought I did once, but she was forced to correct me with a wry smile when I found her demolishing a burger at a food festival […]Read More The Skinny Thing: Calling All Fat Vegans.
Some time in November I told of my dip into the WW world of pointed dieting. It’s been, well, irritating and effective in more or less equal measures. My progress in weight loss terms has been slow but generally in the right direction despite that pesky business of Christmas the misery month of January and […]Read More The Skinny Thing- Four Months of Weight Watchers
I have to say I started penning this post on the Sunday afternoon of the end of my no added sugar challenge with every intention of a rum and coke and a slice of vienetta and no regrets about not seeing it through to the turn of the week at midnight. It didn’t quite work […]Read More NAS Challenge- the summary
It’s a not-much-to-report-day today. General happiness of payday and important and absorbing business of talking sh*t with friends made the morning fly by without snack breakdowns and staying on the no added sugar waggon has been easy. I came in to work armed with all the right things today- big lunch salad and small bit […]Read More NAS Challenge Day 5
I started out today out cranky and hungry. It’s 9ish now and I can’t seem to wake up. I have half a mind that I’m getting a cold or something but I thought the same when I went vegan for an experiment a couple of years ago and it went away after a few days […]Read More NAS Challenge Day 4- Damnable Dextrose!!
sad editors note- due to my lack of attention skills the crisps I raved about in this post turned out to be stealth sugar holders. See later updates on that 😦 Urgh. Today. It was all going too easily! The pain of today is lunch out with Bestie, which obviously isn’t a pain in itself […]Read More NAS Challenge Day 3
