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
I’m generally thinking that this blog has turned into a restaurant review blog, rather than the intended healthy living blog! On the upside, I lost 2lbs last week…on the downside, having The Best Friend to stay has meant that I have eaten out more than I would hope to do so! We spent yesterday in … More Jamie’s Italian
So, I was supposed to be going on an Amnesty Protest about the Arms Trade Treaty, but showing my incredible genius got a little confused and ended up going to Trafalgar Square (where funnily enough there was a Fathers 4 Justice protest!) instead of Parliament Square where it was actually being held. In a stroke … More Why I Love London, Part 1
So, since the Friend From Uni was down in London visiting me, we did in fact eat out once. For this spectacular occasion, we went to Hache in Camden, widely accepted as one of the best burgers in London. This is the third time I’ve been and every time it’s been amazing! I got the … More The Best Burger in London!
So, doing this blog has really encouraged me to think about food and what I eat and this has prompted me to think about my favourite ever meal. I’ve come to the conclusion that my favourite ever meal was Cinco de Mayo 2009 – TACO NIGHT! It was on my study abroad year in Malta; … More Musings On My Favourite Meal
So, with a friend staying over, I decided to make tacos. Not that it stops me, but I find making tacos for one very indulgent since it makes craploads of washing up and is quite a process with just one person involved. If you’ve never had a taco…OMG, go and make them!!!! They are amazing … More Taco Night
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
Having invested in some harissa paste and excited about the possibility of adding something new to my repertoire of regular recipes, I decided to go about making harissa chicken and couscous. I had it in a restaurant a few months ago and it was delicious (also a tiny portion – so tiny that me and … More Harissa Chicken
