Cheese & wine for supper in the camper with a new book! πŸ‘Œ
Any of my followers buddhist or interested in buddism?? I find it quite interesting & this is a book that's written by a monk that one of the customers in my work handed in for me to read! It's just full of little short inspiring stories that really make you rethink your thoughts! ❀ (quite a cool title as well! πŸ˜‚)

It's really important to make time for the little things that make you happy..... ❀
I just realised tonight how much I love baking! 😍
Apple, raisin & cinnamon muffins using wholegrain rolled oats & white spelt flour & sweetened with fresh apple & maple syrup 😍 Me & kids had them for supper while they were still warm 😍 I mixed up a little maple syrup & cinnamon through some Greek yogurt to go with the warm muffins! πŸ‘ŒπŸ˜

Happy 3rd anniversary of refined sugar free living to me!! πŸŽ‰
I had no idea how I'd feel & the changes that would happen within me, not only physically but also mentally which was unexpectedly the biggest change of all!
In the weeks leading up to Monday 30th March 2015, I had looked into how to eliminate sugar from your daily life. Although there was information available, there was nowhere near as much as there is today! Three years on & we now have TV shows & more & more personal blogs & social media pages popping up all the time & this is really amazing to see lots of people sharing they're own sugar free journeys & recipes.
With the slightly more limited information available back then, @davinamccall 's book '5 weeks to sugar free' became a bit like my bible at the time! Although I never followed the weekly menu plans etc, I did learn so much from that book & it was the perfect first step into this new sugar free world for me. I honestly had no idea there were so many different names for sugar on product ingredient lists! Now 3 years on, I have made almost every recipe in that book & still use it regularly (it's very well loved now with lots of sauce & batter splashes!)
When I actually think about it, I'm genuinely in a state of disbelief that I haven't eaten a chocolate bar or a shop bought cake or biscuit in 3 years! I love finding new recipes & baking cakes & little sweet treats that I always let my friends & family try. They always love them & are very surprised that they contain no refined sugar!
Seeing how more common sugar free living was becoming & how inspiring & helpful it was to me, last year around Easter time I decided to start my own Facebook & Instagram pages. I wanted to show people that if a regular, sugar addicted, working mum like myself can cut out refined sugar then it really is possible for anyone!

(This is my first attempt at Fearne Cotton's cherry Berry sponge cake!)

First day of spring today & the sun is out in Scotland! (Still cold though!) Off work today so grabbed a quick packed lunch & headed to Loch Lomond... Tuna & salad wholemeal wrap, handful of strawberries, packet of ready salted crisps & a bottle of mint iced green tea! 😍😍 (Thank you so much for my bottles @icecubetea so good to be able to just grab a bottle of something that's not water!)

Found some coconut sugar in Aldis a few weeks ago & decided to try using it for the first time tonight so made Fearne Cotton's Banana Bread! 🍌🍞
I didn't have any walnuts so swapped them for sultanas & I've just had a slice with a cuppa & it's really delicious! Love the added chia seeds in it & it's really light & moist πŸ‘ŒπŸ˜

Cream of Mushroom soup with black pudding!! 😍😍
I was telling a friend that one of my favourite soups is cream of mushroom & he asked if I'd tried it with black pudding?! Never had I thought of adding black pudding to my mushroom soup but omg it's actually amazing!! Grill a couple of mini circles of black pudding & place them on the bottom of the bowl then surround them with your homemade mushroom soup πŸ‘ŒπŸ˜ So hearty & filling-perfect meal on such a snowy day! (If you're feeling particularly adventurous you can add a poached egg on top of the black pudding!)

Joe Wicks banana & blueberry oat muffins... well they turned out quite good! Tbh I wasn't sure at first bite as I think I had 'muffin' in my head too much & it's not a cake, it's a breakfast muffin! Perfect for a quick brekkie in the morning πŸ‘ŒπŸ˜

Little bit of baking on a Sunday night.... Joe Wicks banana & blueberry oat muffins all ready to go into the oven πŸ‘Œ Breakfast during the week in our house is generally the kids grabbing something & running to the bus stop with it! πŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆ so I've been looking for something different for them & saw this recipe-I had a few bananas needing used up so thought I'd try them & will see how they go....!

Happy Burns Day everyone! πŸ’™
No added sugar cranachan for pudding here tonight πŸ‘ I just layered raspberries, whipped up cream & toasted oats & drizzled with a little honey πŸ‘ŒπŸ˜
(Sorry I disappeared for a wee while-I tend to hibernate a little over the winter months!) .

Not really a big yoghurt fan but really felt like a tropical fruit yogurt thing today! I still haven't found any yoghurts that don't have sugar added in so I thought I'd attempt my own this aft! After searching my fridge, I used Greek yoghurt & whizzed up some mango & pineapple chunks & mixed them altogether then added chunks of the left over fruit & drizzled a little honey on the top πŸ‘ŒπŸ˜
