Miriam Faulkner  Mum of two little-ish littlies, wife to Mr F, lover of Cornwall and doing my bit to stop the #plastictide

I made a baby jumper! I used a fab video tutorial by @lexie_loves_stitching and The Funky House hand dyed yarn by @threevioletbuttons and @stylecraftyarns Special white yarn and my @cloverusa hook.


Finally got photos of the completed @attic24 Harmony Blanket I made for my lovely Mum for Christmas. I started it on 06 Dec 2017 and, after a bit of stop/starting, finished it on 08 May 2018. My Mum said she’s going to call it her Chelsea Blanket as I gave it to her the day after we went to @the_rhs Chelsea Flower Show.

So these are some of the highlights of my month long “vegetable adventure” with the fabulous @thehappypear boys!
I joined their online Healthy Heart course as one of my goals for 2018 (as discovered through the @loveprojectlove Goodbye 2017 Hello 2018 course) was to learn some vegan recipes.

Well, in addition to lots of amazing recipes I have met (on line) some lovely and very interesting people AND lost 1.5” off my waist, 1” off my hips and 8 and 3/4 pounds off my whole body!
I did get my cholesterol and blood pressure tested in the first week of the course but I can’t get that rechecked for another two months. So, I plan to carry on my vegan adventure, probably 80% if the time, until I can get them rechecked.

I can highly recommend this course and you’ll be pleased to know they run every month! Go check them out!

I took part in a #GREATPLASTICPICKUP event organised by the Wickford Wombles today. The first photo is what I personally collected and the last is about two thirds of the total collected from a stretch of road no more than a mile long and an area of open public space. It was a well organised and attended event and I met some lovely people.

Last week, my 3rd week of the Healthy Heart course from @thehappypear, all I craved was peanut butter. This week all I’ve craved is chocolate. So today I made this!! Chocolate Chai pudding!
Based on this guy’s recipe ( I only tweaked the sugar aspect a bit swapping out most of the liquid sweetener (maple syrup) for dates.

It’s quite rich on its own, down to @therawchocolatecompany cacao powder, but with an apple and some frozen raspberries it is a delight, even if I do say so myself!! #wholefoodplantbased #vegan #chai

Mmmm! @thehappypear Healthy Heart Pad Thai!
Skipped the pepper but added dded asparagus and pea shoots from @coopukfood, julienned carrots (thanks to my fab julienne peeler from @lakelanduk) and a dry roasted seed mix with chia and flaxseed from @tescofood all mixed up with wholewheat noodles from @sainsburys
Super tasty, super colourful and super healthy!! #wholefoodplantbased #healthyheart #vegan #alltheveggies #chia
