Whole30, round three: what I ate in week three

This week sage has become my favourite herb. So much so, I want to name mine and Phil’s first daughter after it but he’s not having any of it. Especially, if you already know his surname which he shares with a common vegetable (similar to a zucchini/courgette) he’s scared she’ll sound like a recipe. I was all, mate, she’s a reflection of us and I LOVE cooking! He’s still not keen… You can see week’s one and two here and here. You can see what I ate this week, below:

Product review: NIVEA Q10 Plus Anti-Wrinkle Serum Pearls

I recently wrote about splurging out on Aesop products and loving how clear they made my skin. Turns out they were too harsh for me. After a week my skin was dry, scaly and stung when I put some jojoba oil on to try and rectify the problem. I’m heartbroken because I love the Aesop products and because I spent a fucking fortune on them. Gutted. I hope we’ve all learnt a lesson from my mistake. TESTERS, people.

Recipe: Thai prawns with zoodles and a whole lotta coriander

First up, if you’re one of those people who tastes soap when they eat coriander (true story), then don’t make this. You’ll hate it. Also, I feel for you. If you’re like me and adore the fresh taste and fragrance, then get involved! This is the laziest, quickest, easiest of Thai-inspired dishes that packs a punch in the flavour zone. Even better, it’s paleo and Whole30 approved!

A snapshot of my first 6 months in London, FOUR YEARS ago

I recently found these little snippets of my old blog, missB (a nickname that has stuck around!) and had a wee giggle myself. While four years have gone by, I seriously haven’t changed. I still write and fret and agonise about the same things. It’s like I’m sitting in a damn rocking chair. Not much has changed; just that I’m not chasing the penis constantly and my own confidence and personal self-assurance has greatly increased. Not that I was ever a wallflower.

Whole30, round three: what I ate in week two

This week, week two, Phil tried to break me by dangling a pizza flyer in my face and saying I could have a night off cooking. I won’t lie, I nearly faltered – but then I slapped that flyer down and told him to bin it. It felt goooooooooooood. I was feeling good at the end of week one, no sugar hangovers and no drastic changes in weight. But I find it takes 2-3 weeks to really see the results. If you missed week one, it’s over here. Week two eats are below – I’ll admit, I ate some meals again, from week one. Because I LOVE THEM. I also tried out some brand new recipes! It’s cold, so we are eating lean roast meat quite a lot – it’s super packed with flavour and if you only add a small dollop of coconut oil to the roasting pan, it’s not greasy or fatty. Just be careful not to pick the fatty cuts of meat (ie. pork with crackling, drool.).
