January’s Whole 30 – Week Two

January’s Whole 30 – Week Two

I’m halfway.  I’m halfway. Half the fucking way! Yes I am celebrating, no I won’t apologise for the F word, I’m halfway through my Whole30 and feeling amazing! The second week really felt like no effort at all.  Especially compared to week one. I did […]

Here We Whole30 Again

Here We Whole30 Again

My last foray into the Whole30 was a total fucking mess.  My head was all over the show, I was putting so much pressure on myself to be the most successful Weight Loss Surgery patient EVER and I was pushing myself physically without having any […]

A Week’s Worth of WLS Lunches

A Week’s Worth of WLS Lunches

Lunches don’t have to be boring – and they don’t have to be leftovers. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely freaking love leftovers but I do get bored of eating the same thing every day. Everything I am sharing in this post, I have made […]

My Food Bag – Does it work for Weight Loss Surgery Patients?

My Food Bag – Does it work for Weight Loss Surgery Patients?

I know, I know, ordering a few weeks of My Food Bag seems like a weird thing to do especially when I really enjoy cooking so much and I’m in the middle of collating and creating a recipe book especially for Weight Loss Surgery patients. […]
