As you probably already know, I write for a food magazine (Taste Magazine) as well as my weekly Food Friday features here on the website. As much as eating out is great and fun, it sometimes becomes a chore when you are trying to eat sensibly or follow a diet plan.
I dine out regularly as part of my work with Taste as well as client meals and work events let alone date nights with the husband. As much as I am always mindful and try to make a healthy choice, it can be damned hard, especially when your host or chef is watching over you wanting to get your reaction on a risotto with a life times supply of cheese or the triple cooked in beef fat fries. Thankfully I don’t have a sweet tooth but it’s hard to say no!
I know it’s something other people struggle with to, so the lovely Rebecca Moore has kindly given her suggestions on how to be healthier when dining out!
With the summer festival season hotting up and T in the Park this coming weekend, I thought i’d share some festival essentials with you.
I’m definitely a glamping or day ticket kinda gal myself but I’m not adverse to a few days camping to reconvene with nature! I’m always the mother hen of the group and I pack for all eventualities and all emergencies. No wonder my bags are always the heaviest!
I’m still in that post holiday zen chilled out bubble as 3 weeks out of the office with minimal online time and no stress was just what I needed.
I’ve had a few doses of negativity and drama since I got back but I have found it so easy to just cut it and the guilty offenders out of my life instead of fretting about it. I think I have the holiday to thank for that as I don’t want anyone to bring down my relaxed mood!
It seems like I am not the only one wanting inner peace and to minimise stress levels so I have some super handy hints and tips from todays guest – Rebecca Moore
Unless you have an Iphone, getting cute / funky phone cases is an absolute headache. Even more so when the phone first launches. You end up stuck with something fugly until something better comes along.
Just look at this magnificent piece of kitsch goodness!
I definitely think a Flamingo is my spirit animal and I’m glad my friends are prepared to acknowledge this!
