26 Week Pregnancy Update

26 Week Pregnancy Update

Wow, the last couple of weeks have literally flown by and I am now 26 weeks and 5 days pregnant. Where is the time going? There’s been quite a bit of drama in our lives lately. Ports (husband) had a car accident 9 days ago. […]

Hazelnut Chocolate Ice Cream Pops (Sugar-Free & Vegan)

Hazelnut Chocolate Ice Cream Pops (Sugar-Free & Vegan)

I am so excited to share this recipe for hazelnut chocolate ice cream pops, not only because they literally taste like Nutella on a stick but this recipe also has absolutely no sugar in it. It’s creamy, chocolaty and indulgent but only has 3g carbs PER LOLLY. It’s […]

The hidden danger in deodorants and antiperspirants. . . and the best natural alternatives.

The hidden danger in deodorants and antiperspirants. . . and the best natural alternatives.

For the last couple of years I have only used natural deodorants. Through using them I have found that I no longer have skin irritations on my under arms (something I used to suffer with on a daily basis), my under arm hair growth is much […]

24 Week Pregnancy Update

24 Week Pregnancy Update

I literally cannot believe how quickly the weeks are starting to fly by now and technically there are only 3 full months left before the baby is officially meant to be evicted from its current womb residence. Still feeling massively under prepared but I am […]

What I Ate Wednesday!

What I Ate Wednesday!

At last we are in my favourite month of May and the sun has finally got its hat well and truly on! The skies have been completely cloudless and I am freckling up at a rate of knots. It’s so nice to feel the warmth and […]

Whether you have a health condition or not, we should all want to look after our bodies and nourish them with as much nutritional goodness as we can get. I am not a preacher and I certainly would never force how I eat / or […]

My knickers don’t fit, but I’d do anything for you baby. (22 Week Update)

My knickers don’t fit, but I’d do anything for you baby. (22 Week Update)

Somewhat optimistically I bought a pair of non maternity leggings yesterday, black and stretchy in a size medium. They looked perfectly fine when I held them against myself and declared to Ports (husband) that there was plenty of room for my favourite womb lodger. However, […]

Raw Chocolate Shortbread Squares

Raw Chocolate Shortbread Squares

Other than the first week or so of pregnancy where I had a huge obsession with eating the most sour oranges I could find (and before being struck down with Hyperemesis Gravidarum), I haven’t had any cravings. Not one. It’s the first question that everyone who […]

What I Ate Wednesday!

What I Ate Wednesday!

I thought that I would start doing a weekly post on what I ate Wednesday. I get so many messages asking what I eat on a normal week day, so I thought I’d start making this a regular thing in the hope that it might inspire people […]

Some exciting news!

Some exciting news!

I don’t really know where to start this post, especially since I have only started blogging again very recently after 4 months of nothing.  I’ve been meaning to write something for a while but every time I start, I stop. For fear of I don’t […]

Butternut Squash and Almond Butter Curry

Butternut Squash and Almond Butter Curry

It’s April and still the weather is grey, cold, rainy and miserable. My tomato plant has died, as it’s been literally drowned by all the rain and Tilly (cat) is permanently attached to my lap, snoring her little heart out and dreaming of sunny days […]

Breakfast for me is all about starting the day on the right track, for not only by health, but for my mind too. It’s something I look forward to as soon as I wake up and it’s something I will make a priority not to […]
