I wanted ice-cream for breakfast, but didn't want the calories that came with that so I made fresh Nice Cream instead. Does it deserve a blog post? Hell yes it does! As a vegan, it's so easy to assume that eating for weight loss has to follow a "conventional diet" where carbs are evil and… Continue reading Ice Cream for Breakfast? Yes Please!
Breakfast of champions when you're feeling iffy? Carrot Cake Smoothie Bowl, obvs! I'm trying really hard to be mindful of what I'm eating during Lockdown. Already struggling with disordered eating patterns, it's been very easy for me to resort to old binging habits to cope with my current situation. I recognize this and am being… Continue reading Vegan Carrot Cake Smoothie Bowl
After binging on Peaky Blinders for the first time, I went into 2019 with Thomas Shelby confidence in what my year will be. I am now modelling my life around what I now call Thomas Shelby energy. That's the "Big Dick" energy of 2018, only bigger and badder (but, with less illegal gambling). We all… Continue reading 10 Changes for a Thomas Shelby 2019

Once upon a… Continue reading Weight loss has nothing to do with the scale…
This has got to be my year of balance. Not because it's super on trend to be enlightened right now, but because I cannot have a repeat of 2017. I'd legit effing die. We're only 5-days into the new year and I am already conflicted. See, I really want to move into a bigger home… Continue reading Am I enlightened yet?
