So, these are tiny, hence calling them treats/fairy cakes. I’ll go with Slimming World’s new policy and I’ll leave working out the syns value to anyone making this recipe. I generally have a ‘throw it all together’ policy on cooking, so the amounts can probably be played around with as you wish. 3 eggs, separated … More Choc Orange Treats
This blog hasn’t been updated in a really long time. I am now several months into being an actual Slimming World member and I’ve lost almost 3.5 stones. Yay! I also have an Instagram where I’m posting all sorts of foods. I’ve decided that I should probably try to write down the recipes for some … More I’m Back!
So, another classic: Chilli con Carne. Amongst my favourite food, naturally fairly healthy and a recipe tried and tested by a Texan…and they know their chilli!!! Chilli is super simple to make, almost the same as bolognese but with different seasoning, and can be tailored around your own personal fussiness… This is all it takes: … More Low-Fat Chilli
So, rather predictably, like a whole host of others, the new year has prompted a return to the blogosphere. After a hectic semester with some really badly behaved students, even more badly behaved colleagues and several bereavements all over the place (for both myself and people I know), I finally feel like my head might … More January Fair Weather Dieters
Ok, so the lack of posts on this blog has coincided with a wobble as far as the healthy living mission is concerned. I’ve missed two Zumba classes (one from being out of London at a conference in Cardiff and the other from loosing my purse at the weekend and not having the money to … More Getting the Wobbles!
So, having just watched an episode of The Men Who Made Us Fat on BBC iPlayer, I feel somewhat compelled to make my first post in a while (even though I have a bunch of food posts I should really write-up first!) because I think it throws up some interesting points. Having grown up with … More Getting Political…
Went along to my fourth Zumba class this Wednesday…bit of a pointless exercise really! The usual teacher had put her back out so we had a sub (doesn’t that just sound like we’re back in school?!) who was rather scary. Besides which, it was so hot and humid on Wednesday that we had to stop … More Zumba Playlist Numero Dos
So I lost 1lb this week – not fantastic but pretty impressive when you take into account that I ate a rather large amount of this: White Chocolate and Peanut Butter Blondies. Heaven on a plate. Truly divine. Very moist. And containing almost an entire jar of peanut butter, along with 250g butter, lots of … More Healthy Living Update
So, in addition to eating more healthily than I have in the past, I am also starting to do some exercise, in the form of Zumba. I went to my first class over a week ago and almost died! When I actually think about it, I haven’t done any real exercise since I left school … More Zumba Playlist Numero Uno
