Confessions of a food hoarder… part 2

While I’m clealring out cupboard one – lentils, pulses and grains I might as well start working on cupboard two – rice, noodles, pasta etc…  Again its precariously piled high and I have a vague idea what’s in there but I’m sure some bits have been forgotten.  So what actually is in this cupboard Canaloni …

Confessions of a food hoarder. 

Hi my name is Ivy and I’m a food hoarder. I buy in bulk, I buy things I don’t need or know what to do with and I have cupboard stuffed full of stuff that’s long been forgotten.  I really want to change that so we have more space in the kitchen and so that…

Sick comfort food. 

Last night was the first time I’ve been ill in a while… at least 20 months to be more precise.  I say this because the foods I would always turn to when I was sick were fish finger sandwiches and mini chicken kievs. Obviously I’m not going to do that anymore so what do I…

April Round-Up

At the beginning of 2017 I set some intentions for the year ahead but has it actually worked and what has happened this last month? Intention 1 – Improve my physical health. My home yoga practice has been a bit hit and miss. As I mentioned last month the space we have in our flat…

This time last week we were away in Skye for Leo’s birthday. It was an 8 hour journey there (with stops) and 6 hours back and about an hour into everything I found out just how car sick I get. Sadly I didn’t get to see all the beautiful scenery but I got so see…

March Round-Up

At the beginning of 2017 I set some intentions for the year ahead but has it actually worked and what has happened? February was looking ok but what about March? Intention 1 – Improve my physical health. Yoga classes have sadly come to an end so it’s now entirely down to me to keep my…

February Round-Up

At the beginning of 2017 I set some intentions for the year ahead but has it actually worked and what has happened? January was looking pretty good but what about February? Intention 1 – Improve my physical health. Yoga classes continue however I have also started to build up my home practice too. At the…

This week on Instagram 

Well my smoothie game has vastly improved, as you can see by the range of colours in this weeks pics. On the whole things are getting a lot healthier with my diet which is fantastic as it’s helped me get over a cold in record time this week. I feel a lot better for it…

January Round-Up

At the beginning of 2017 I set some intentions for the year ahead but has it actually worked and what has happened? Intention 1 – Improve my physical health. Before yoga classes started up again I was having fun with @yogaracheal’s 21 day foundations of yoga however after 4 days she stopped posting and shortly…

Last week on Instagram 

We’re currently in London so a lot of this is what we’ve been eating while we explore with the lovely people from Shire Snax.  We’ve got our breakfast from Eat in Edinburgh airport which was surprisingly good. We’ve got lunch at Fed By Water which was delicious as always, a visit to Yorika for dessert…

Last week on Instagram

Last week on Instagram seems to have mainly been about smoothies. Working in a gelato shop is amazing and I love it there but being surrounded y the smell of freshly baked waffles and having vegan gelato on hand the whole time is not good for me. One of my Intentions for 2017 is to…

Setting intentions for the year ahead. 

Rather than New Years Resolutions which undoubtedly will be forgotten and broken within weeks of 2017 starting I like to set an intention for the year ahead. What do I mean by intention?  It’s a positive goal or focus. For example instead of ‘I’m going to stop being so fat and unhealthy’ a better way…
