Chorizo egg muffins

It really is about time I shared a new recipe!! These are super simple and quick to make and they make great breakfast, lunch or snacks on the go. Can be eaten cold or reheated, and just about any flavour combination you fancy could work. Here’s what I went with after picking up some beautiful … Continue reading

Whole 30 – Reintroduction

I mentioned in a previous blog post that I probably wasn’t being entirely honest about my reasons for this last Whole 30, and while I can admit it was mainly weight loss, reintroducing food types  to monitor their effect played a big part in my reasoning too. The week following completion we each tried the … Continue reading

Whole 30 days 26-30 with meal plan

So despite my confession, I stuck with the general meal plan for the duration. I just see it as re-introducing wine a little earlier than the 30 days 🙂 I don’t feel that this has been a failure at all. And I’ve been wondering if the reason I haven’t seen such drastic improvements this time … Continue reading

Time to ‘fess up…

Sooooo, I may have caved a couple of days early. OK, I DID cave a couple of days early. My disappointment with this Whole 30 in comparison to the last has been a feature throughout. I’ve narrowed it down to not feeling that burst of energy and not losing any weight. In fact, after a … Continue reading

Whole 30 days 21-25 with meal plan

I didn’t think I’d be writing this at this stage of the game feeling exhausted. Perhaps I’m expecting too much. And I haven’t slept well the last few nights with some nightmares, so that won’t be helping either (although better sleep should be a benefit of this). I have picked up the activity a bit … Continue reading

Whole 30 days 16-20 with meal plan

Hmmm… It’s still not really going as we’d hoped. Booo 😦 The last time we did this we both reported feeling much more energetic, definitely slimmer and generally just a bit sharper and brighter. Although we’re feeling some benefit it hasn’t reached the heights of the last Whole 30 we did. Maybe that means we’re … Continue reading

Whole 30 days 11-15 with meal plan

How can it be the next stage already?? I’m sure I just published the last one! 🙂 Days 11-15 have been a bit disappointing. I was hoping to get that upturn in energy a bit more and it hasn’t really happened. The fella and I are still pretty much as normal. Not quite springing out … Continue reading

Whole 30 – Days 6-10 with meal plan

Bit later than expected with the second stint of Whole 30! We’ve been experiencing the phenomenon known as summer in Scotland, and as such I’ve been trying to enjoy it while it’s here and get outdoors, which generally means I’m a bit pooped at the end of the day. But, I have now listed the … Continue reading

Whole 30: Days 1-5 with meal plan

We made it through 5 successful days. Yay us! It’s been a pretty bumpy week with tiredness, lethargy, some pretty severe headaches and some changes to digestion (!), which the fella lovingly refers to as ‘paleo tummy’! I really did feel pretty crap for a few days, and am hoping things are on the up … Continue reading

It’s all in the preparation

The Paleo lifestyle is one that involves cooking. What? Actual cooking on a cooker?!? Yes. I’m afraid. If you’re someone who is in to convenience food it may not be for you, unless you have a new found love for cooking. Which you really should, because it’s fab! Of course there are some quick and … Continue reading
