The Right Food Matters!

How many times have we heard the phrase “You Are what You Eat”? Well, after eating stuff that was not strictly whole-food, plant-based while I was on holiday and beyond I can attest to that fact. Definitely feeling sluggish and demotivated for a while there. I’d say I was about 80% compliant and because ofContinue reading “The Right Food Matters!”

TRENDING 2021 – Vegan and Plant-Based

Can you believe we are almost two thirds the way through 2021? I’m so late in discussing what’s trending in the vegan and plant-based world this year. It makes for very interesting reading.

It’s Been a While?

What a year so far! So much going on in my life that often I don’t know which way is up! Huge changes have yet again derailed me. So I have taken time out to look after me and take stock of where I’m going and what I need to do to ensure my wellContinue reading “It’s Been a While?”

Busy, Busy, Busy!

Still getting to grips with all the recent changes. Still loving the house we have moved into although the smaller kitchen remains a challenge, but getting there. Still have bits of furniture to get and need to ‘dress’ the house with pictures and ornaments etc. I do prefer a simple uncluttered space though. As usualContinue reading “Busy, Busy, Busy!”

Life got in the way – big time!

Going through a really difficult time at the moment and I can’t disclose fully why because it would not be fair to others involved. Suffice to say that my mental health is taking a battering and it’s not helped by the pandemic which means I can’t meet up with friends who would normally be myContinue reading “Life got in the way – big time!”

Happy New Plant-Based Year!

I’m feeling so good health wise. However, we started this new year in tier 4 in another attempt to curb the spread of Corona Virus. When will it end? It occurred to me that for the first time in many years I was in a place in my life where I was able to dressContinue reading “Happy New Plant-Based Year!”

The only constant thing in life is change!

It’s been quite a week. Back to having 3 teenage boys in the house makes for a busy, chaotic household! Other family commitments have meant that I haven’t given my blog the attention I should have this week – hence being late in posting! Talking about change, we are currently in the second period ofContinue reading “The only constant thing in life is change!”

It’s Personal

Every day is a challenge in one way or another isn’t it? Particularly as we in England are back in lockdown. My challenge at the moment is to come up with engaging content every week for this blog. Am I getting through to those who read it, the absolute passion I have for this dietContinue reading “It’s Personal”

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”

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?”
