Wondering what to do with 6 packets of beetroot and my continuing obsession with the two ingredient pancake

I love Saturdays because I get to cook and eat my favourite breakfast. During the week I leave my house at 6.45am and so I have breakfast at work. At the weekends my pancake is what I choose most of the time. I have blogged about how make my two ingredient pancake before and you can

Fit or thin? What’s more important?

It is safe to say that I am feeling a bit fed-up. Mainly disappointed in myself. Whilst not weighing myself for a long time now (a year or is it less? I’m not sure, I can’t remember) because the Paleo diet was suiting me and my jeans fit, I thought I would happily carry on

Tandoori-Spiced Salmon Fillet with Sweet Potato Masala Mash – another Gurpreet Bains special

I am going to share a favourite recipe from the Gurpreet Bains’ wonderful book Indian Superfoods. I cook this at least once a fortnight. I also cooked it for friends at the weekend, and it was give a big seal of approval. I think one of the great things about it is how easy it

Mimi Spencer wrote a really interesting article in the Saturday Times called ‘The Body Politic’. In it she said how great it was to feel slim and how she is currently at the perfect weight for her, the weight that she is happy with. But then she goes on to say something really interesting –

Now we are well in the new year I am right back in the Paleo groove. Having a break from it over the Christmas and New Year break reminded me (yet again) why I do it. This bench from Central Park in New York sums it up neatly: I just feel more stable on it,

Gosh it’s hard to stay healthy at this time of year isn’t it? My ‘just the one Quality Street’ seems to be happening at least 3 times a day. I have had conversations recently about how we label ourselves in our minds. For example, I used to say ‘I am an all or nothing person’

Positive thinking

I have lost my focus a bit and my weight is creeping up again, just by a couple of pounds but that is the wrong direction to be going. I know what has happened – I’m sneaking too much chocolate in and I’ve found what I like that is ‘allowed’ on Paleo and I’m allowing

Does a Paleo diet make you health freak?

There was an article in the Sunday Time Style section yesterday which talked about the Paleo diet. It just goes to show how much more recognised it is becoming over here in the UK, where it has been much bigger in the US for a while now. The lead of the article was actually about

Exercise is good for you right?

I did a 45 minute Hatha Yoga class yesterday and I now ache all around my ribcage or I suppose I should say ‘core’. This is unexpected. Who knew Hatha Yoga would give me pain – I thought it would help! I seem to have spent the best part of the last 7 days aching
