Wow, I can’t believe it’s been nearly 3 months since my last blog post! Work steadily ramped up until Easter, then went totally crazy for about 4 weeks. I think things are back to normal though, but I wouldn’t speak too soon! I have a number of things I want to share with you, including… Continue reading Chocolate Baked Oats
In the spirit of Free Food February I thought I would rewrite and reshare my recipe for tofu muffins, or crustless quiche. I’ve relied on these this week for snacks, especially on SP days. I first published this recipe here as a veek for the asparagus and red pepper muffins from the Little Book of Light… Continue reading Tofu Muffins (again!)
Gosh it’s been a while since I last posted! Between Squiggle and I both getting sick in less than a week I had more work than usual to catch up on. Squiggle is also being a very crummy sleeper, so instead of being productive when he naps, I nap with him to try and claw… Continue reading Wheetabix Truffle Recipe
I am writing to you from my sick bed – before I had off spring I never got sick. I even wrote that on job applications: “I am punctual and I am never ill.” Pretentious? A little. Since Squiggle was born I’ve now probably had more sick days than all my previous jobs put together.… Continue reading Sick Beds and Siblings
Today I am going to talk about Giant Chocolate Buttons! Yes, you heard right: Giant Chocolate Buttons! In a vegan, Slimming World blog? Oh yes, my friends, right here, we are going to talk about… Giant Chocolate Buttons! These ones, to be exact: Whilst Squiggle and I were failing at not buying unnecessary purchases in… Continue reading Giant Chocolate Buttons!
At the end of November, when I had my horrendous wake up call and started back on Slimming World with a vengeance, I wrote down some things I wanted to gain from losing weight. There were the usual list fillers; more confidence, not shying away from cameras, happier in myself, etc. The most concrete thing… Continue reading Some Things Can’t be Measured on Scales
Saturday is Weigh Day for me. Last week I wanted to lose 3 lbs – I had to lose 2 lbs to get my next award and wanted that plus an extra lb for added security. I worked hard towards that goal, keeping my eye on the shiny, and then the big day came around.… Continue reading Shiny Week!
Someone at my group recently mentioned that they’d been thinking about going vegan, and although they felt now wasn’t the right time whilst they were trying to lose weight I’m really excited that someone is thinking seriously about it! I told them about how being vegan and following Slimming World is great, and it’s easy and a… Continue reading My Favourite (and least favourite) Things about a Vegan Slimming World
Since discovering the power of Orgran Egg Replacer I have been much braver with the recipes I try. Of course, it doesn’t work for everything but I’ve had success so far with waffles, pancakes, Yorkshire puddings (kind of!) and now what are usually referred to as “breakfast muffins” (essentially crustless quiches.) If you haven’t used… Continue reading Light Bites Veek – Aspagus and Red Pepper Muffins
If you haven’t tried searching for recipes on Pinterest, you are in for a wealth of delights. Just make sure you have something tasty for dinner after you’ve looked as you’re going to be made very, very hungry. Since pinning a number of Slimming World recipes that are either naturally vegan or easy to veek… Continue reading Discovery – Fake Heinz Recipe
