THE VEGAN KIND | AUGUST ’17

I was thoroughly impressed with this month’s ‘The Vegan Kind‘ box. It’s packed full with brands that I’m already a huge fan of including ‘Sweet Freedom‘ and ‘Emily’s Crisps.’ Let’s dive right in.

THE VEGAN KIND | JUNE ’17

After last months fail of a box, I knew that this months The Vegan Kind box had to be much better. I can confirm that it 100% is. I’ve already devoured the majority of the snacks and am back to being thoroughly impressed with TVK’s lifestyle box.

SOURCED BOX | MAY ’17

First year of uni complete and my summer has officially began! My plans for the summer of 2017 is to drink myself into oblivion with my friends, go on my first ever group holiday without my parents, go to a bunch of theme parks with my family and hopefully spend more time making things from my collection of recipe books. Snacks will obviously be needed in between all of this and Sourced Box have me off to a great start with their May box. With the perfect mix of sweet and savoury, I can’t wait to dive in.

WHAT I EAT IN A DAY | NOT WEDNESDAY

For some reason I had it in my head that today was Wednesday so I was all ready to hit out with another ‘What I Ate Wednesday’ post. So you can imagine my annoyance when I realised it was actually Thursday. I honestly have no idea where this week is going (personally I blame all the studying I’ve been having to do this week. My brain is turning to mush!) However, I thought I would still write up a what I eat in a day post. After all, Wednesday isn’t the only day of the week that I eat.

DO I HAVE A FEAR OF HUNGER?

It might sound ridiculous but I think I have a fear of hunger. Go back three years ago and it was a fear of food itself. I like to think of this as the perfect example as to how eating problems can linger for years and how once you overcome one obstacle, another arises. Well, to this obstacle i’m saying enough is enough. I want to be able to eat when I’m hungry and stop when I’m satisfied and comfortably full. I want to not have to bring a stash of snacks with me wherever I go and not plan the days events around my meals. I’m hoping this post will not only potentially help others recognise their own fear of feeling hungry, but will also encourage me to get my butt in gear and give this intuitive eating malarkey a go for real.

WHAT I ATE IN LONDON

Firstly I want to apologise for the lack of posts this past month. I’ve been so caught up with uni that any free time I’ve had to focus on my blog and YouTube I’ve been putting it solely on YouTube. Now that my classes have finished though and all that’s left is to study for my one exam, I’m going to make sure that my blog is back on its A-game.

So, I thought that my first post in this comeback should be a little what I eat in a day post. But this isn’t just your average food diary. I’ve just returned from a trip down south visiting my Grandad with my sister where we also spent a day in London. I thought it would be interesting to share with you guys what I ate while I was there.

PANCAKES

I’ve always thought very fondly of pancake day. In primary school, whenever the Tuesday before Lent rolled around, I would be ready for two little scotch pancakes topped with jam. My school must have also shared these fond thoughts as we would always have a second day titled ‘Pancake Day 2’ before the Easter holidays. My Dad would also always make pancakes for dessert after dinner and I would load golden syrup onto mine. Simple but sweet unlike my sister who always wanted to put a bit of everything on hers but was never allowed.

Yesterday my Mum made pancakes from one of those ready made mixes but I wanted to make my own. Last year I opted for Deliciously Ella’s sweet potato pancakes which I topped with banana & Sweet Freedom choc shot if I remember correctly. This year I decided to look through my newer recipe books and hunt for a new pancake recipe to try. Here I found another recipe from Ella in her new book Deliciously Ella with Friends: blueberry pancake stack.

AN EVENING WITH DELICIOUSLY ELLA

I very rarely go to book signings. The idea of having to queue up just to briefly chat for a few seconds with the author before being rushed away has never really appealed to me. However, when I saw that Ella Mills (formally Woodward) was doing not only a signing in Glasgow in support of her new recipe book ‘Deliciously Ella with Friends‘ but also a Q&A session I jumped at the chance to go. As you probably all know, I am a huge believer in living a healthy, balanced lifestyle and my main concern in this is always food. Ella is one of the people that continues to inspire me to eat well while also encouraging me to actually get into the kitchen and cook (something I’m not very confident with).

‘FILLING STATION’ | REVIEW

Today is my sister’s birthday and as is the annual tradition we went out for dinner in celebration. Usually we go to the same places but last night we went to Filling Station which is an American restaurant and bar that has recently opened fairly nearby. As we had never been before and as it isn’t an overly common restaurant chain, I thought I would write up a little review of the place.
