    Vegetarian or Vegan?- Watch out for these ingredients

    As you may know, I’ve been Vegan since May 2017 and it’s one of the best decisions I’ve ever made concerning my diet and health. Now, I’m not here to convert everyone because it’s your choice what you eat. However, I think it’s important to be aware of what you’re eating.Something I have noticed recently. People claiming they are Vegetarian, aren’t actually Vegetarian or Pescatarian as they regularly consume dead animals without realising. So, I decided I would create a list of key ingredients to avoid and look out for as both a Vegetarian or a Vegan. This could never be a complete list as there are too many to…

    Food Haul – Vegan Ferrero Rocher and Lidl Veggie Week

    I set my alarm in eager anticipation for Lidl Veggie Week this year. Last year was the first time we went and fell in love with many of the meat alternatives so this time we made sure to get there early and fill up on the goods. Many of the items we have popped in the freezer as good gotos. Did I mention most of them are very low calorie as well? The chicken pieces are 100 calories for half a pack. The Pakora (a new found love this time around) are only 49 calories per one. Make sure to my post from last year about Lidl Veggie Week which goes…

    Positivity – The root of your tree

    Hello, so I began this blog by searching for a definition of the term positivity or positive. I thought it would come up with something pretty good to put at the start and work from but all I got was a lot of jargon about this or that. Positive emotions, feelings good, actions with good effects. Blah, blah, blah. So then I started worming my way around and doing some research but came to the conclusion that there is no easy way to explain positive. It’s an emotion, it’s in our thoughts, feelings and it’s in what we do. It also means something completely different to each beautiful individual in the…

    Taking a breather for a healthier mind – Get a little lost

    Hello, as part of mental health and having a healthier mind I think it’s underappreciated how much walking and taking time for yourself can really help. After a bit of a spat with my husband this morning I went for a wander. I had no idea where I was going I just walked. After about 20 mins I went down a little road and at the end was a small shrubbery surrounded by trees with a bench, slap bang in the middle and it was exactly what I needed. I sat there for about 40 mins just listening to the birds, the wind on the trees, smiling at the occasional dog…

    Spending Pennies – Fitbit

    Hello, so as you can probably tell by the title of the post. I got a Fitbit Charge 2. They were on offer in Currys and we’ve each been after one for a while now. He got black and I got this pretty one. Originally I wanted the skinny Alpha but I liked the capabilities of this one and actually thought the skinny one was a little too skinny for my liking when I saw it in the shop….. So a little more about how it’s working for me. I’m loving it so far. Goals First thing first on set up is putting in goals. Mine are weight management (weight…
