IDAHOT 2017

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

Carb-free meatballs

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.

Vegetarian nights

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.

Whole30, round three: what I ate in week four

This Whole30 feels like its going way faster than the last one. It just feels normal now, like I’m just eating. I don’t overthink it all (which is new for me). Before the last Whole30 and this one I cleared all my cupboard and fridge. It’s nice to know I can just go for the food in my house and eat it, no guilt. I definitely recommend this, especially on your first time – it’s so easy to fall off the wagon if there are quick, easy treats at arms length.

I bought an immersion blender this week. So shit got exciting. Hello, Paleo Mayo!

If you’ve missed the previous posts, weeks one, two and three are here, here and here.

Whole30, round three: what I ate in week three

This week sage has become my favourite herb. So much so, I want to name mine and Phil’s first daughter after it but he’s not having any of it. Especially, if you already know his surname which he shares with a common vegetable (similar to a zucchini/courgette) he’s scared she’ll sound like a recipe. I was all, mate, she’s a reflection of us and I LOVE cooking! He’s still not keen…

You can see week’s one and two here and here. You can see what I ate this week, below:
