Food & Fitness Friday – How I’ve Lost my Baby Weight Alongside Breastfeeding 

This week has been national breastfeeding week so I thought it only fitting to incorporate feeding Benjamin into the post. Eight months into breastfeeding and we are still going strong. I’m really proud of both of us to have made it this far, and I have high hopes we will make it to my goal of a year, and perhaps even beyond.  There were many reasons behind my choice to...

Food & Fitness Friday – Celebrating with Happy Hour at Taco Bell 

The past couple of weeks have been a bit of a rollercoaster ride for Ed. He’s finished his open university degree, a degree he had been completing alongside a full time job for the past six years. He’s also applied for and been offered a training position as a teacher, the change of career he has been working towards with his degree, and one which will be a real positive...

I must admit, it’s not been at the forefront...

Food & Fitness Friday – Taco Bell Poole VIP Launch 

Ed and I are huge fans of Mexican food. When it comes to eating out, it’s generally a battle inside my head whether to pick Indian or Mexican, and lately Mexican has been winning.  I’m a big fan of Chiquitos, and I’m waiting with baited breath for the new Las Iguanas to be finished being built at the BH2 Leisure complex in Bournemouth but I actually didn’t realise that Taco...

Foodie Friday – Simple Steak Stir-Fry 

I love a recipe that involves minimum effort and maximum yum. I’m not a huge steak fan, but as I’m pregnant, I’m trying to up my iron intake. This recipe is simple, filling and best of all – quick!  Ingredients: -2 steaks (don’t ask me what kind, Ed buys the meat!)  -Courgette  -Red onion -Yellow Pepper  -Red Pepper  Recipe:  -Chop the vegetables and red onion and fry them in a...
