A Sensible Bucket List Item: Grow Your Own

Bucket list items don’t have to be adrenaline fuelled. Sometimes they can be totally sensible.   One such thing on my list is “grow and eat my own vegetables”. You know, plant something, grow it, harvest it, eat it.  I’ve always thought growing your own veg to be a skill that should be known by everyone. If there was

Recipe: Cauliflower Rice… “Caulirice”

After the success of Courgetti, a vegetable alternative to pasta that has become a regular feature of mealtimes in our house, this week I decided to try another similar alternative. Cauliflower rice – or “caulirice” – is a low calorie and gluten free alternative to rice that can be used to accompany meals wherever you

Review: Sprout Pencil

Sprout is a pencil that wants to be a plant when it grows up. This is an ordinary hard pencil suitable for writing and drawing that, once its life as a writing implement is over, can be planted and then eaten… That’s right – you cut down a tree to make a pencil, then grow

Book Review: How to Eat Loads and Stay Slim

How to Eat Loads and Stay Slim is the second book by author Peter Jones – you may remember him from such blog posts as How To Do Everything AND Be Happy, a self-help book designed to help you change your life. This new book is very similar in its aim, but very specifically looks

Weight Watchers: Work Place Weight Loss

There are many things that make losing weight difficult. Motivation to eat healthily and exercise more comes and goes for all of us for many reasons. Sometimes it’s the weather – how hard is it to say no to a big baked potato at lunch time or a massive hot chocolate in the afternoon with our current

Weight Watchers: Week One Success

I’ve been following the Weight Watchers Pro Points plan for a week now. I have been doing my best to keep within my daily points allowance, keeping those weekly points for extra things like treats and eating out. It worked just about ok – even with a couple of meals out (when I really didn’t

Weight Watchers: Getting Organised

It’s 1st January 2013 and so the start of a brand new year. You already know my New Year’s resolution is about being true to myself. Part of that will absolutely be about being more healthy – eating better, exercising more, you know the sort of thing. So the fact that I’m a Weight Watchers

The Experiment is Complete – Jenny Craig Week 4

It is finished. I completed my four week Jenny Craig free trial thanks to that blog competition. I will be honest and say I have definitely not been a model dieter. I’ve had days off, eaten starchy vegetables, had the odd slice of cake. But I have still found it very interesting and have learnt

My Bunnies Have Hay Fever

I am one of many people who keep rabbits as pets… they are in fact one of the nation’s favourite domestic animals. Well they are soooo cute! But like dogs and cats, the RSPCA are seeing a large number of pet rabbits end up in their care and needing treatment and foster homes – because

Too Old and Sensible for Adventure

Life is all about the journey.  But sometimes everyday life gets in the way of taking a specific path, however awesome it might sound. I’m talking about the Visit England campaign to find someone to tour the country (all expenses paid) and blog/tweet/photograph/video it for 12 weeks this summer.  The lucky traveller will get to

Year in Photos (2 Oct 11) – Eat Natural

These are my favourite cereal/snack bars at the moment… but they’re quite expensive in my opinion so I only buy them on occasion. 02/10/11: Supper treat after a long day Like & share:

Year in Photos (1 Aug 11) – White Rabbit

Year in Photos (15 Jun 11) – Bunnies and Pink Petals

The bunnies were very playful this morning and being incredibly cute so I treated them with a couple of wilting roses – pink petals are their favourite! 15/06/11: Ginger eating a pink Rose I couldn’t just leave it at that coz there were some other snaps I had to share too… Like & share:

Year in Photos (28 Mar 11)

Another day of sunshine here in Lincolnshire and the bunnies appreciated that I was off work again – they set to eating all the fresh spring buds off my roses and other plants around the garden. 28/03/11: Chocolate eating grass like she’s never been fed Like & share:
