Now, when following a paleo/Whole30 diet (as I’m now trying to do following my rosacea discovery) you find yourself buying kilo upon kilo of sweet potato. After you’ve mashed it, roasted it and baked it as fries you can find it tough to get inspired. What’s next? SOUP! The idea of sweet potato soup bamboozled me. I know it shouldn’t though, because hello potato and leek! Why can’t there be a sweet potato option? Enter, Jamie Oliver.Read More
Yes, you can have a guilt-free, creamy Thai-inspired red curry on Whole30. Here’s how… Read More
At the start of the year I set myself the goal for 2018 to be the year of the cleanse, encompassing mind, body and soul. As part of my progress I think it’s important to check in periodically to see that I’m on track.Read More
Yesterday (day 29) I posted a photo of myself to Instagram showing my body and skin progress from Whole30 and got a flood of lovely messages. I mean, they’re my friends, they weren’t going to tell me I looked like a sack of potatoes even if I did and I love them for it. But I do think they were genuinely happy for me in how I feel and my confidence boost that has come with it. Read More
As I’ve mentioned before, preparation is key to eating well and keeping your life in balance. Life is busy. I take time each week to plan out my meals – it soothes me. So for weekday mornings when I need to join the rat race and hit London’s financial island (Canary Wharf) I like to have breakfast ready for me, so as not to delay my start to the day. Read More
There comes a time when you really just want to have a sweet treat to kill those cravings before they get out of control. As long as you’re careful about what “sweet” treat you pick, you can do this without breaking from the Whole30 program. Read More
It’s day 16 in my January Whole30 and this week I have felt a bit of a slump in my energy, maybe that residual Christmas sugar is finally leaving my system? But I’m powering through, because the idea of stopping and having to start from scratch does not appeal.Read More
It’s been too long since I last wrote. But boy did that festive season fly by. Except for the part where I still had to turn up to the office. Rough. It was the first Christmas I have worked in three years! While there was basically no work to do and I received a sum total of 12 emails – the importance was the fact that I was there, in body. My mind and soul were still chilling in my comfy loungewear and drowned in Christmas spirit(s).Read More
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!
Crispy, crumbed chicken has long been a firm favourite of mine. So as soon as I nailed the paleo mayonnaise I decided I needed something scrumptious to dunk in it, and what goes better than crispy chicken and creamy mayo?!
I had tried making paleo mayo once before but failed miserably when the ingredients didn’t emulsify. On my second attempt, following Michelle’s strict instructions and recipe I had huge success! Phil is a huge mayo fan so was over the moon. You can find the recipe at the above link.
For the chicken, check it out below:
