"Oh, but the carbs!" I hear you scream. Yes, the carbs. But I am going to post this recipe here regardless, just because I am currently in love with this bread. And because I am thinking that even a weight-loss diet can do with some nice bread. It just means you limit yourself to 1 … Continue reading Super-Easy Home-Baked Bread
Oh cod, I haven't posted here since April. That is when my long line of holidays and breaks started and it not only meant that I was absent a lot, but also that the dieting more or less went out of the window. Or so I thought, but bearing my own handy tips in mind, … Continue reading Let Them Eat Cake
Hi there, long time, no read. I've taken a bit of a breather recently, ignoring the internet and concentrating on myself instead. The diet is part of that recalibration attempt, and even though my initial 12 week run of WW at home already finished two weeks ago, I am still on the programme. Full disclosure: … Continue reading Dieting on Holiday
In German, we have this proverb that goes "wait and drink tea". It translates into 'wait and see', and basically means you should just sit back, relax, and wait until the situation is more favourable. Kind of works for all occasions - including weight-loss. Yesterday I was down in the dumps. A bad day because … Continue reading Wait – and (Drink) Tea
Those of you who follow me on social media know that Ireland was subjected to severe winter weather last week. Siberian winds brought blizzard conditions to the East coast, practically shutting everything down. Schools were closed for 3 days; all state offices were closed, the public transport system was suspended and people were told to … Continue reading Pointless Chicken Curry Daal
My silly scales are continuing to play up. Another perfidious attack on my resolve and my motivation courtesy of the weighing device happened this morning. Although I was freshly relieved of excess liquids, and in a suitable state of undress, the scales had the audacity to claim I had actually *gained* 200g over the last … Continue reading Faking it?
Today's weigh-in Tuesday starts with a bit of a panic. Sure, when I get up, ready to step on the scales, I know that there had been a couple of slips over the last week. Those Roast-your-own Cashews from Thursday? Seriously addictive! I roasted two more batches in the subsequent days, and yes, I scoffed … Continue reading Shrewd Technology
In the course of the diet, another obsession has come to my attention. Judging by my previous posts, I am an addictive personality. If I find something I like, I can't get enough of it. Zero point pancakes? I'll eat them every day! Lunch time wraps? Every day. Tall, dark, handsome Brit actor? No escape … Continue reading I’m nuts for nuts!
Today is the day when you *must* 😉 try that zero points pancake recipe I posted in my breakfast post a while ago. Two eggs, one banana. In a blender. Then into the pan - make small, drop scone-size pancakes, otherwise it will be difficult to flip them. Since I already posted the recipe before, here … Continue reading Pancake Tuesday!
I don't know about you, but pizza is something that I never tire of. Especially the home-made variety with my own pizza base. But oh, the carbs in it. And the cheese on top. Giving it up has been very hard. But now I have found my new obsession. Cauliflower pizza. Keep an open mind … Continue reading Cauliflower Pizza
