  • 5 super quick & easy healthy recipes

    Sometimes we don’t have time or energy to make an elaborate meal, so I have collected five of my favourite easy meals that you can just throw together. They are healthy and fresh, and are gluten, dairy, nut and egg free, and low FODMAP. You can even make them vegan if you choose to by […] Read more…

  • Bone – Book review

    This poetry collection by Yrsa Daley-Ward is striking. It covers a wide range of topics, from abuse to love to exclusion and more, all of which draw on the author’s own experiences. It made me gasp, cringe, and feel sadness and hope, and pulled my awareness to so many situations I had not previously thought about. […] Read more…

  • P.S. I Love Me

    Today is Valentine’s Day. We know it as a day of love; it’s a day to show you care about a special someone; it’s a day to treat another with chocolate-dipped strawberries, fancy dinners and gooey love letters. But what if we turn it around? What if it doesn’t always have to be about showing […] Read more…

  • Tofu and vegetable bolognese

    I have always loved spaghetti bolognese. It is simple, delicious and comforting. Recently I saw a technique of baking tofu to replicate mince. Now that I don’t eat meat I was keen to try it out, and it seemed a great opportunity to create a bolognese recipe! I have added in a lot of vegetables, […] Read more…

  • Caterpillars Can’t Swim

    Caterpillars Can’t Swim by Liane Shaw is a coming-of-age story revolving around three teenage boys. Each have their own difficulties, hopes and fears. They attempt to deal with these together in various ways of support and hinderance. I was kindly given this by NetGalley to give an honest review. Goodreads blurb: Ryan finds his freedom […] Read more…

  • Jan wrap up & Feb goals – 2018

    Somehow January has ended so it is time to reflect on the first month of my new monthly goals series! I started off the month feeling motivated and thought I’d totally nail these goals. It was not to be but I did fairly well! Over the past couple of weeks I have been pretty exhausted […] Read more…

  • Peggy and Me – Book Review

    “Peggy and Me” by Miranda Hart is, simply put, a memoir about Miranda Hart (comedian and actress) and her dog Peggy. And it is hilarious. I have never laughed so much while reading a book. There were moments when I could barely read through the tears and when I had to stifle snorts so as […] Read more…

  • January goals – 2018

    I am starting a new series on my blog! I plan to write a post each month containing some goals I want to achieve, and a wrap up of how I went with the previous month’s goals.  In January, there are three areas in which I have goals. Although it’s already the second week of […] Read more…

  • Diet update – AIP, meat & food intolerances

    It has been a long time since I have done an update regarding my diet plan, so I decided that today is the day to talk about it! I began the Autoimmune Protocol (AIP) three years ago (time FLIES!). This is a diet that aims to heal the body when there are autoimmune diseases present. […] Read more…
