My vegan family meal planner and dinner menu
This week I have decided to create a vegan family meal planner for our dinner times... in the evening. I thought I’d better state it’s for the evening as I’ve always called the three meal times breakfast, dinner and tea! When I got with my husband he called them breakfast, lunch and dinner... Of course … Continue reading My vegan family meal planner and dinner menu
How to lose weight and maintain it naturally
It’s so important to be and maintain a healthy weight, yet I feel the whole ‘weight loss’ saga is a bit out of control. Too many people are focussed on their weight and wanting to be thin or skinny, but they are not focussed on their health. They want a diet that stills enables them … Continue reading How to lose weight and maintain it naturally

Since January 2017 I have been ‘refined sugar free’. I have unknowingly made a couple of slip ups (thanks Baxters for changing your lentil and veg soup recipe), but I have tried my best to not consume anything that has sugar as an added ingredient. I had already, long before this, begun my quest to … Continue reading Why is refined sugar bad?
5 simple ways to reduce waste in the kitchen
Leading a more sustainable and eco-friendly lifestyle has never been more important. We are causing so much preventable damage to our planet and that's without the whole global warming scenario.

Is the ‘everything in moderation’ diet a load of baloney?
One thing that’s been winding me up lately is this ‘everything in moderation’ diet nonsense. Yep, nonsense. I said it and I reckon a lot of people will disagree, but hear me out.

Getting your 5-a-day does not make you healthy
This is something that I have thought for a long while and it’s a topic that has recently been in the news with some arguing we need 10 portions a day and others claiming just 3-4 portions of fruit and veg are enough. Both articles claim scientists came to these conclusions, so it’s no wonder … Continue reading Getting your 5-a-day does not make you healthy
