One task. Well apart from work, the gym, loving my boyfriend and not eating sugar. All I had to do was not eat meat, just fish and seafood. I failed. It was a total brain fart moment too. We were grabbing snacks for the train to Edinburgh and I was trying to be conscious of not having any sugar and complex carbs. So I grabbed carrots, hummus and CHICKEN. Absolute fail. And you know what? I didn’t even realised I had broken pescetarian week until AFTER I had scoffed down every delicious morsel of said chicken. Oh the guilt I felt.Read More
Today is IDAHOT day; International Day against Homophobia, Transphobia & Biphobia. A day that my workplace is 2000% behind. I am happy to work for such a large Bank in an industry that is very old-school in so many ways, but yet is completely inclusive and forward thinking. To mark IDAHOT day, the Bank are globally dressing in purple, having a bake sale of charity, hosting parent and family events, movie sessions, handing out purple candy floss, putting up posters for awareness, having external speakers share their stories and placing photo booths about the globe.Read More
Obviously, most meatball recipes are carb-free – but these ones are so satisfying and filling you don’t even need the spaghetti! Phil brought me back this bowl from Barcelona when he went to visit (we weren’t dating), but he knew of my passion for collecting crockery from all over the world, as long as they contain the colour navy.
Not to be mistaken with Vegas nights.
In a bid to be healthier and lower our chances of a heart attack, once a week Phil and I have rolled out vegetarian night. We’ve also implemented fish night to go along with it. We are meat eaters, proper steak, chop and sausage lovers. So the break, and eating halloumi or fish with a salad and sweet potato is a welcome respite.
