Morning! I must apologise for my radio silence these past few weeks - my only explanation is having a very active 2 year old and a 5 month old who is VERY snuggly. So much so, that apart from the very bare minimum of getting a 20-30 minute workout in at the arse crack of … Continue reading Ain’t Got Time Fo’ Dat? – 5 Min Banana Bread
Afternoon! The last few weeks have been filled with newborn snuggles, nappies, sick, sleep deprivation and toddler life - basically I’ve been parenting HARD! But I’ve done my best not to let my health slip because my 8 week old is a greedy beasty and nurses ALOT so I need all the energy I can … Continue reading Mama Muffins!
Evening! Sometimes, when we’re embarking on a new journey in our lives, we need a bit of support and encouragement from our peers. Health and Fitness is most definitely one of those journeys. A couple of weeks ago, I ran a 7 Day Challenge Group where a group of ladies completed one of the newest … Continue reading Clean Week – a Review
Afternoon! Usually I reserve diving head first into a plate of pancakes for Sunday mornings. But, this morning (Wednesday) I was proper fancying some, but couldn't be arsed with measuring cups or scales. I also didn't want to feel stodgy as I take Dumpling for his swimming lessons on Wednesday mornings. 15 minutes later I … Continue reading When The Banana Met The Eggs
Afternoon! I had two sad and lonely overrripe Bananas sitting in my fruitbowl this weekend. You know when they get so upset that when you pick them up, the stall falls off and their ends are then exposed? I'm talking REALLY depressed Bananas. Not one to throw food away too often, I decided I'd put … Continue reading Everyone Loves Flaps!
Evening all! So, after 13 months of Maternity Leave and living in a baby bubble with our lil Dumpling, I went back to work work work work work work today. The hardest part about today was, funnily enough, nothing to do with leaving dumpling (he will now be busy terrorising Grandma for 4 days … Continue reading Have You Seen The Banana Oat Muffin Man?

This is a sort of 'mini cleanse' if you will, … Continue reading Feeling (3Day) Refreshed!
As a British person, I've never understood why Americans call, what are essentially dumplings, 'biscuits'. When I went to New York in 2012, I constantly saw 'biscuits' as a side order on restaurant menus. I never ordered them because I couldn't understand why anyone would want a Rich Tea or Bourbon with their restaurant meal. … Continue reading Tea & Biscuits
My mum was always that mum who made everything from scratch. No matter what it was, she could make it. Want some apple pie? She'd make it. Want fish and chips? Mum would be at the fishmonger in the morning and whisking up batter in the afternoon whilst chopping potatoes. So, naturally, I try to … Continue reading Have a bowla granola!
Anyone who knows me, knows I am all about the Beachbody home workouts. I stopped going to the gym four years ago when I first did Insanity. But, its not just enough to do the workouts, as any fitness professional (I'm not one, obvs!) would tell you. You can workout all you want, but if … Continue reading Fixate All The Food!
