New year! New... not so much...
I'm going to go against the grain, and say I hate this New year new me gubbins. It just doesn't ring true for me. I'm the same person, if I want to make a change I've got 365 days in a year, and some of those days aren't grey and dismal and I don't have a h...

Apple & carrot scones: a vegan, soya free recipe
Vegan apple scones are a firm favourite here. A super quick bake, that requires no special equipment, it's boosted with some chopped apple and sneakily grated carrot. Harry loves them as a post-nursery snack, and I love them deveganised - slathered with but...

Veggie packed masala chickpea pilaff: Dairy free & vegan
This veggie packed chickpea pilaff feels a little like the answer to the unachievable - a quick, healthy, easy, and non sandwich based lunch that will keep me going until supper without raiding the biscuit tin! One thing I have learned though, is that the k...

Meal Planning Monday on Tuesday: 7th March
Yes, I know. I know! Oddly enough I wrote the meal plan on Friday, but completely blanked on actually blogging it until today.  Another busy week, with the sun making an appearance to brighten our days (if not yet warming us up).  In a shocking change to pr...

Self care on Sundays, my plan for the week ahead
I can't remember when I first heard of the idea of self-care, I know I've been thinking about it for a few years now, and do my best to carve out small parts of my week where I can give myself a little breathing space in whatever way, space or form that mig...

Meal Planning Monday: 27th February
How on earth did that come around so soon? Last week's meal plan was a bit of a disaster, the meat we bought from Aldi was (despite being well in date)off, disgustingly so - as was, randomly a butternut squash. Necessity being the mother of invention; the S...
