a healthy muffin?

a healthy muffin?

Healthy + muffin. Those two words don’t really go together do they? We like to think they do, buying the ones from the bakery or cake shops that are ‘99% fat free’ and whatnot, but generally they are loaded with sugars and other nasties. This is why I much prefer to bake my own so … Continue reading

Sorry for being a little quiet on the blog front lately. Life has gotten a little busy (as it does)! Things are starting to settle down again so I’ll be back into it soon enough. This snack isn’t one I’ve tried yet, but I plan on digging the food processor out this weekend to give … Continue reading

feeling blue for macaroons

I’ve been having a ‘woe is me’ kind of week. I managed to put my back out on Monday evening quite spectacularly. I don’t do things by halves you see! So much so, that I couldn’t stand up straight, or walk straight on Tuesday or Wednesday. After many visits to various allied health professionals (chiropractor, … Continue reading

friday fail snacky-snack

what’s the saying? fail to plan and you plan to fail? That’s exactly what happened to me today. I failed to organise my Friday Snacky-Snack, so was left without one at work. Sure, I had my trusty jar of Walnuts on my desk, and I did manage to remember to bring a protein power ball … Continue reading

So this snacky-snack came about after rummaging through my pantry to see what I had on hand this week. I came across a packet of dates. I had originally purchased these in order to … Continue reading

against the wall-nut

Some days I feel like I’m banging my head against a brick wall. Do you ever feel like that? I’m sure I’m not alone. This week I’ve ridden a rollercoaster of emotions. I’ve gone from feeling strangely motivated & positive about getting back into my fitness routine (seriously, where did that come from?!), then I’ve … Continue reading

green doritos

green doritos

green doritos. Sounds a little less than appetising right? Never fear, these are my healthy version; my ‘Kale Chips‘. Yup… unless you’ve been hiding under a rock somewhere, then you probably already know what I’m talking about. I hope you’ve already tried it too, but if not, here’s my take on them. These are of … Continue reading

an unusual snacky-snack

an unusual snacky-snack

Today’s snacky-snack is from Sarah Wilson’s I Quit Sugar e-cookbook. This one is a little unusual to me, and admittedly, I didn’t think it’d taste that good. It’s Salted Caramel Haloumi & Apple It looks good, well I thought it did…. The taste? I liked it. Mr Loud seemed to enjoy it too. It’s a … Continue reading
