Yummy lentils, spring onions, red peppers and apple balsamic vinaigrette for supper last night!
Well, what a disappointment! I carefully constructed my images-and-
text post, only for this silly function to delete most of the text…
Ah well, peeps – I’ll update it when I’m in front of a computer
I’ve subscribed to far too many healthy eating blogs lately, and they’ve inspired me to share my lunch with you!
I’m afraid to say that I’m a bit of a lettuce dodger, so what I tend to do is buy packs of vegetables intended for stir fries – cabbage, carrot strips and bean sprouts – and make a salad out of them instead. They’re combined with my absolute diet staple – king prawns. There’s something about the Co-Op ones; they’re just so flavoursome.
Next layer is my favourite recent discovery – leek and alfalfa sprouts. They have just the right level of oniony pungency, without being so overpowering that you can’t eat them at work! Also, some people do theorise that sprouting grains are magically good for you… Not sure if I buy it, but why not if they’re tasty and cheap? All topped off with a tub of basic salsa. I’ve been having the most insane tomato cravings lately – thankfully they’re a Weight Watchers *free* food, so I can snack on them as much as I like!
Want to see supper as well? Oh go on then…
Pud, you say? Here it is!
One of the things I love about Waitrose is that they just stock nice things – even their economy versions of foods are ethically sourced, free range, British where possible… I love these frozen raspberries because they are delicious, and I can eat a tonne of them with minimal calorific damage. Yes, I am a greedy guts, and yes, I eat them frozen. I blended them once, making the most amazing sorbet, but it’s too much like hard work, and it seemed like *everything* was pink!
So, with a healthy dose of Maldon Salt (oh come on – I’m over 300 days smoke-free, I’ve got to be allowed a vice!) I’m very pleased with my meals for today!
What are your absolute go-to diet foods? The ones that help you to feel like you’re not depriving yourself!
1. Men in white vans really love high heels!
2. Rain in June is super-depressing.
3. Spilling Lucozade down yourself will make your clothes crispy.
So, this is my first remote post using the email function! I hope it
works ok… Off for my singing lesson with lovely Jules – I’m planning
to be American Idol Experience-ready by June!
We are in the thick of planning our wedding for August this year – terrifying how quickly it’s sneaking up! – and the most useful tool throughout the process has been wedding blogs. In a world where publishers put out one magazine every two months for £5 a pop and more than half-fill them with adverts, the online community hits back and produces something, frankly better!
I stumbled upon this inspiring and heart-warming post on one of my favourite wedding blogs, Love My Dress and thought I’d share some of the sites (and their posts!) that are helping us make our wedding everything we dreamt it would be!
My dear friend, Steph was kind enough to put together a mood board for me on her wedding blog, which features all the style and sophistication of New England, along with so many excellent tips and hints on how to plan your big day!
I have been searching high and low for the perfect necklace to complement my gorgeous, low-backed dress, and everything I found was just too flimsy or – let’s face it – a little too Ivanka Trump’s wedding budget rather than mine! Rock My Wedding introduced me to the gorgeous Liberty in Love website, where I fell head-over-heels for the Hayworth Vintage Necklace *sigh*.
The Big Daddy of all wedding blogs, this American blog has inspiration in buckets – fully searchable, and oh-so-stylish. I couldn’t possibly isolate one article, so I’ve just linked to the lovely Abby’s page.
