I spotted those flowers in the market on Friday, aren’t they beautiful? They really made me feel like spring is around the corner, and we do seem to have had some brighter days recently. This week has been wonderful, but more on that to come…


I’ve been cooking up a storm in the kitchen this week. I started by baking some muffins:

These are grain free almond butter and chocolate chip – check out my Facebook or Instagram for the recipe later today! I enjoyed them for breakfast with some pouring yoghurt and half a banana:

I had a lovely snack using the other half of the banana:

This was warm blueberries with pouring yoghurt, banana, flaked almonds and a little maple syrup. I also baked a loaf of my courgette, date and pecan bread:

I replaced the flax eggs with two regular eggs and I have to admit the texture of this is better with the eggs and rises a lot more. I had a couple of slices fresh from the oven covered in melted butter. So delicious! Other tastiness has included…

I’ve been off my part time job again this week and as I’ve been trying to just crack on with work, as well as having a busy diary of meetings with clients and other meetings I’ve just fitted in what I can. Loving Yoga Glo and really enjoying relaxed gym workouts while listening to the Balanced Bites podcast!


Is it just me or are we in that weird betweeny season where winter clothes feel too stuffy but it’s still too cold for spring clothes? I’ve been layering it up to try and find a way around it:

That dress was just £5 in Primark, bargain!



This week has been off the charts awesome. I’ll tell you more next week, but it’s just been brilliant. Amongst other much bigger better things I’ve got my first set of accounts for Uniquely Healthy almost sorted, had a great meeting about starting a project working with young people coming out of care and into independent living healthy cooking skills and some brilliant sessions with health coaching clients, including several new clients. This week I’ve really got a feel for how life would be if I went full time self employed, so exciting! Also…

visiting my cousin Catherine and catching up // spotting a Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) foundation course starting near me soon, I’d love to learn more about this to help make me a better health coach // purple kale // waking up to sunlight // organic dark chocolate dipped in peppermint tea // healthy hot chocolate // Elbow: One Day Like This being stuck in my head


How has your week been? What kind of clothing are you wearing for this inbetweeny season? What have you been loving this week?
