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”

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”

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!”

Where to begin! Whole Food Plant Based (wfpb)

In my last post I said I would take a selfie – here it is! As I’ve said in previous posts, I was looking to make a change back in late 2019. I knew that meant dealing with my increasing weight but in the back of my mind I was thinking what’s the point? “YouContinue reading “Where to begin! Whole Food Plant Based (wfpb)”
