Friday (well, Saturday actually) Fish Pie TBird Style
Monday, November 16, 2015      1 comments

Friday night is corned beef hash night at our house and that's not going to change (because it's cheap, easy and done by Hubs+Daughter whilst I'm out being a Brownie Guider) So the Friday Fish pie recipe became Saturday's tea. There is no spec... Read more

With apologies to anyone who isn't interested in food, there's going to be a lot about it for a while as I explore the recipes on the budget eating plan from Jack Monroe. For lunch today Pol and I had salmon pasta. On a budget. I kid you not.... Read more

Gluten free bread costs a fortune and is, quite frankly, not very nice. So I figured it was worth trying the soda bread recipe from Jack Monroe with gluten free flour and see if that worked. The answer is that yes, it really does work very wel... Read more

We are doing slightly better these days for money but there are expenses that are rampaging a little and unnecessary food item purchases are definitely rampaging out of control. Eating gluten free is expensive and with 2 gluten free people in t... Read more

I ground to a stop with the small changes challenge due to a number of things. Some of the changes weren't 1 day challenges really and I got a bit over-faced with changes that were going to take a long time to establish. Also life with a disab... Read more
30 days of small changes day 14 - fruit and veg
Wednesday, August 05, 2015      2 comments

Well, I do try to eat enough but will confess that it's mainly fruit with much less veg. I think that's probably not the best way forwards. So, yes, this is a small change that needs work. It's another one that really can't be done in a day, h... Read more

I've been very delinquent with my blogging! It has been a busy and somewhat stressful few weeks. I shall brain dump all of the stressy bits first... that's just how my brain works. Bypass the bits between the stars for the better stuff.... Read more
Mindful eating continues and other stuff happens too

I'm rather surprised to find that I'm enjoying my silent breakfasts. I'm trying to not have exactly the same breakfast every day which is of itself a big change and adding different flavours to my morning porridge is an easy way to increase my ... Read more

Saturday, July 04, 2015      0 comments

First to update on the two goals that were difficult.... sleep is still elusive but I have totally forsworn caffeine now as it became more and more obvious that even the smallest amount affects my sleep and my resting heart rate detrimentally. ... Read more
A week in 1578
Thursday, June 25, 2015      0 comments

Last week I was in my happy place, my spiritual home, call it what you will. I was dressed in a heavy wool dress called a kirtle, with a wonderfully supportive bodice holding me up. I was allowed to indulge in my love of hand spinning without ... Read more

Having done really well yesterday with making sure I drank enough and doing a good training session, by evening I was not doing well at all. The food I ate after training is still in my stomach over 12 hours later. I can manage small sips of l... Read more
30 days of small changes day 11 - drinking enough water
Saturday, June 06, 2015      0 comments

Some days I'm better than others at remembering this but I do find that the best way for me to remember to drink all the water I should is to fill 3 water bottles up, put them in the fridge and then work through them during the day. I'm n... Read more

Friday, June 05, 2015      0 comments

My "holding pattern" on morning exercise and getting enough sleep has given me time to concentrate on those things before moving on to other small changes. In an attempt to find something that made me feel better in the mornings (rather than tr... Read more
