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.

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).

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…
