New Year….Old Me

I see the old adage of new year...new me and just laugh. A changing of calendars makes no difference to the essence of me. Shall I lose 50 lbs this year...probably not. Shall I try to diet this year....almost certainly! Shall I become super efficient and get all my work done....certainly not! So New Year....Old… Continue reading New Year….Old Me

Huel review

Huel is a plant-based meal replacement product that I have no ties to at this time. Please know this is from using the products for just over a week so not long term. I decided to give it a try to help me focus in on my meals and getting my snacking under control. Some… Continue reading Huel review

Vegetable Barley Soup

When I checked the clearance produce section at Tesco I found a vegetable soup mix for 20p (12 cents US) as well as sliced spring greens 25p (14 cents US) so I decided to make some vegetable soup. I still had barley at home in addition to some red lentils, spices and stock cubes so… Continue reading Vegetable Barley Soup

It is the beginning of December and I have lots going on. We are moving this month so that will be lots of work. I am attempting to formally diet as I have now gained, lost, and regained this year to the point that I am 30 lbs heavier than this time last year. I… Continue reading What am I up to now?

What’s happening right now

Sorry I have been quiet. Feeling a bit overwhelmed lately. So much change going on for me and not enough of me to spread around. Something had to give and to be honest I think just about everything gave in the end. My exercise stopped. My studies I am just about maintaining but I have… Continue reading What’s happening right now

My readership seems to have taken a nose dive lately so I have been feeling a bit bad about my writing.

Weekly menu 10/09 – 16/09/2020

This week is going to be mostly shopping from my freezer and pantry. My plan last week went out the window a bit. I cooked for the family but did other stuff with what I had. I have found myself with lots of food leftover so we need to work through that. 1. Steamed vegetables… Continue reading Weekly menu 10/09 – 16/09/2020

Country potatoes

Emily loves potatoes. She would live on potatoes alone if I let her....just mashed potatoes! Country potatoes are more of a cross between mashed potato and chips in my opinion. Em plans to put her potatoes in a wrap with sausagemeat, eggs and salsa as breakfast burritos like w had back in the US. Alan… Continue reading Country potatoes

Snacks

Roasted chickpeas

Snacks have been a frustration for us at times. I really love crunchy snacks and this has been a struggle. Popcorn is an option but plain is boring. Veggies and hummus is nice but doesn’t quite hit that chruchy snack craving for me. Roasted chickpeas have been a great option. You can do a slew… Continue reading Roasted chickpeas

Weekly Menu 27/08/2020

Last week I promised a review of how my menu plan worked along with my plan for this week. I will go over breakfast, lunch and dinners separately. The breakfasts were completely different to my 0lan. I had spotted bagels at the store and had that with peanut butter. The plan was smoothies but when… Continue reading Weekly Menu 27/08/2020
