Seeing Things Differently

Visited the hair salon today – I go every 6 weeks and normally by the middle of the 5th week I’m looking at my grey roots thinking the next appointment can’t come fast enough. This time however, I was out with my friends when I received a text reminder for my next appointment, and wasContinue reading “Seeing Things Differently”

Still Keeping It Simple

Went out for lunch in Chesterfield today with 2 wonderful friends. We chose to visit Wetherspoons in Chesterfield Town Centre – we know it as The Portland Hotel. Before lockdown this was our usual haunt to meet up every 3 to 4 weeks. It’s a great place to meet because no one minds that weContinue reading “Still Keeping It Simple”

The Plant-Based Food Market is Booming!

One estimate I have seen recently is that the plant-based food market is set to grow to $74.2 billion by 2027. That is big business by any standard! The report I read was from plantbasednews.org The evidence suggests that more and more individuals are choosing a plant-based lifestyle. There appear to be a number ofContinue reading “The Plant-Based Food Market is Booming!”

Whole-food plant-based and health benefits

I was prompted to talk about this subject following a conversation with a friend. I was telling her what I eat for breakfast and she said that would be no good for her because it would cause her blood sugar to spike – she is diabetic. That got me to thinking! I’m sure I’ve statedContinue reading “Whole-food plant-based and health benefits”

Cooking on Gas! Spaghetti with Cauliflower Walnut Meat Sauce

Recipe – convegblog.com (with a couple of tweaks) Recently I realised that I’m cooking the same few meals over and over again and looked around for something new to try.

What exactly is a Plant-Based Diet?

I’m asked this question a lot A Whole-food, Plant-Based diet is a heart healthy, environmentally –friendly, type-2-diabetes-fighting lifestyle eating plan that celebrates food and nourishes your body. On a plant-based diet, you’ll focus on whole non-processed foods and plants like vegetables, fruits, whole grains, legumes, seeds and nuts. Sometimes this diet is confused with aContinue reading “What exactly is a Plant-Based Diet?”

Appliances – Saving Time!

I didn’t have many kitchen appliances before I started eating whole-food plant-based, just the usual, oven and microwave, oh and a slow cooker gathering dust in a forgotten corner! What more does a person need when living off processed food and whatever was easiest to heat up or throw together with the aid of theContinue reading “Appliances – Saving Time!”

Out and about in my home town eating whole-food plant-based…..or as near to it as I can get!

So, a few years ago I bumped into a couple of friends (on separate occasions) that I first met at age 11 when we started secondary school. We were pretty much inseparable all through school and later through college. Then life got in the way and gradually we saw less and less of each other.Continue reading “Out and about in my home town eating whole-food plant-based…..or as near to it as I can get!”

Let’s talk bloating and gas!!

After my last post, (Whole-food plant-based – Change for the better) I received a question from Nikki about what causes bloating and how it can be prevented. First of all, thank you for the question Nikki and for encouraging others to visit and read my blog. Well, I remember very clearly experiencing bloating for aboutContinue reading “Let’s talk bloating and gas!!”

Whole Food Plant Based – Change For The Better

Making a change isn’t always easy! I’m sure I’ve already mentioned that I didn’t transition to a wfpb eating lifestyle. But not everyone chooses to jump straight in with both feet. Some choose to transition over time – it’s a personal choice. Some may choose to cut out meat while still eating dairy products. OthersContinue reading “Whole Food Plant Based – Change For The Better”
