Around the holidays I always notice this pressure about certain foods being banned when you choose to live a healthier lifestyle. Personally I think it’s important to move away from this type of mindset as it can be very restrictive. It seems that if we call a food “bad” we shame ourselves out of eating it. Yes there is no doubt about it that certain foods are more beneficial to our health & others less so but it doesn’t mean they can’t be part of a balanced diet. It’s not until you stop labelling foods as “good” or “bad” that you truly start to enjoy foods without feeling any sort of guilt. The majority of my diet consists of well balanced food full of micronutrients so eating something that is less so simply because I enjoy it doesn’t bother me. So my advice around Christmas, yes it’s ok to be mindful but don’t get caught up being obsessed or stressed with what your eating, you’ve another 50 odd weeks in a year to worry about staying on track with your goals.
Easy living, easy hold. Easy teething, easy fold. Easy listening, easy love. Easy answers to easy questions.

I love my own bread....there...I said it. There is a heart in this slice so I’m thinking it loves itself too 😄 #tryingtobehumble
Woke up to a gloomy, rainy and cold day in Northern Ireland. At breakfast, Graeme’s dad asked us if we still wanted to follow to the beach for a morning walk as we had agreed the day before. Hesitant at first, we both decided to borrow their raincoats and leave the comfort of the house, one of those decisions you are glad you made when you look back.
