vegan for 1 week

Vegan for 1 Week

I’ve added on my 40 before 40 bucket list: Vegan for 1 week. It might be a bit strange, as I’m been vegetarian for more than 10 years. Also, my diet involves eating quite a lot of vegan food. But, I wanted to see how it would be. I made a meal plan and I […]

Superfoods. Packs and jars of superfoods

Superfoods

January is the perfect time to talk about superfoods. After indulging at Christmas, all the supermarkets and companies that sell supplements and superfoods have all sort of offers. It might be trendy this month, but I’m not taking part in that trend. I say I’m not because I love trying out new foods all year […]

I thought I should make a compilation of Autumnal recipes to share with my readers and also to have as a reference when I lack inspiration. I made all these recipes myself and all the recipes are available on CookStyle. The recipes include lots of pumpkins, squash, and other vegetables that are in season. I […]

What’s cooking

It’s been a while since I’ve made an What’s Cooking roundup. I talked in July about my weekly shopping, but I didn’t share any recipes. So, today I’m going to talk about the last things I’ve cooked. This week I’ve been invited to the Chef Challenge at Shoryu Ramen in Manchester and I made my […]

Weekly Shopping

I saw a blog post written by Dana about her weekly shopping and I’ve decided to write a similar post, as an alternative to “What’s cooking”. It was an interesting experiment for me too as we don’t usually buy everything we need for a week in one day. As we eat a lot of fresh […]

1 year of daily smoothies

1 year of daily smoothies, sounds like a lot. It was never my intention to do it. In June 2015 I’ve started a Colourful Smoothie Challenge with an American blogger. During that month she wasn’t as keen to keep us on track. I did the first 10 days, then the next 10 days. After that […]

Cookies and Muffins by Paul Hollywood

Cookies and Muffins by Paul Hollywood

I spotted the mixes made by Paul Hollywood in shops the other day. I’ve wondered if I should get them. I don’t use mixes because I don’t see the point for them. When we are away with the caravan, I would make my own mix, basically I weight in the flour, sugar, baking powder, cocoa […]

How to make a realistic meal plan

How to make a realistic meal plan

I wanted to make a weekly meal plan for ages, but I get ideas and this makes me want to cook something else and I can’t stick to a plan, until now. For our last week away (well, a little bit more than 1 week), I made a meal plan and this is how I […]
