So this is one of my new favourite pancake recipes. I LOVE pancakes- it’s become a Sunday/Weekend tradition for my boyfriend and me to treat ourselves and have pancakes. This recipe isn’t one of my most healthy, but it also isn’t that unhealthy, especially if you make it with my strawberry puree instead of adding sugar or maple syrup.
This salad is perfect for something like me who loves fresh crunchy salad and HATES soggy salad- the dilemma? I don’t have time to prepare salads fresh on the day I’m going to eat it. Often I’ll be taking it to work and need it to stay crisp and crunchy AND somehow manage to add a dressing without it going all over my bag.
This recipe is super quick and easy and great if you’re looking to try something new. It’s also lovely to photograph food that is so bright and colourful! You’ll get seriously good instagram-worthy pics.
The great thing about this recipe is that you can make it vegan/veggie/meat-loving so you can cater to all your guests. Yay!
If you read my last post you’ll know that a couple of days ago I went shopping for a pair of high waisted denim hot pants and ended up having a bit of a meltdown- long story short, the lighting in the Topshop changing room was so unflattering and the shorts made me look gross- as a result I had a ‘ugh I hate my body’ day.

Warning- blog contains bad language and serious grumpiness.
This is probably the most honest post I’ll ever write- apologies for grammatical errors but rants don’t require proper punctuation and spelling okay?!
Most people would say I have an alright body- even I admit it occasionally. I also post pictures on Instagram of me in a crop top, stomach out (providing the lighting’s good and i’ve yet to eat breakfast, you might even see a hint of abdominal definiton) flexing as hard as I can.
However, I have days where i literally feel shit about my looks and although this post is mainly about fat and weight- these personally body hatred days often coincide with “why does my hair look like shit/i wish i wasn’t so pale and pasty/my nose is like a bloody witch’s (no offence to any witches reading this), i look tired, my skin’s dry etc. etc. etc. seriously i could go on forever.
Today happened to be one of those days where I literally want to curl up in a ball, spoon nutella straight from the jar into my mouth and binge watch netflix because everything is just shit.
Let me tell you right now and save you years of trying shit, fad diets like I have, THEY DON’T WORK. Juice cleanses, detox teas, diet pills, wraps and ridiculous bone crushing corsets might work in the short term, but you can’t keep that shit up. It’s simply not sustainable (and not good for your body). So learn from mine and millions of others women’s mistake that the only way to lose weight is to eat healthy food you enjoy and move your body on the daily.
