And it bloody sucks right? I was 0.5 over the BMI threshold for even being tested for gestational diabetes. I nearly declined the test (which was offered to me at 27 weeks), thinking it was pointless. Good job I didn’t eh? Gestational diabetes is, put simply: ‘high blood sugar that develops during pregnancy and usually disappears… Read More So you’ve got gestational diabetes…
I haven’t really spoken about it much on here, because I’m really bad for starting this diet or that exercise plan and then giving up after like two weeks. But I’ve joined Slimming World. I joined back in April and I did really well to start with, but have been a bit crap over the… Read More Slimming world as a vegan.
Who doesn’t love a sandwich? Being vegan doesn’t hinder your sandwich eating opportunities. Oh no my friend. It opens you up to a whole new world of possibilities.

I was interested to find out if simply watching the same documentaries that we had, would have the same… Read More Netflix Documentaries on Veganism: How convincing are they?
I have such a love/hate relationship with cooking. Sometimes, I could spend all day in there making something amazing and other times I want to eat a potato waffle sandwich. I am a bit of a maverick and pretty terrible at following recipes without meddling, I chuck all sorts in thinking it will improve it… Read More Vegan Recipe Boxes: A Mindful Chef Review

If you read my recent post on why we have decided to go vegan then I guess this is the next logical post to follow that.
