Hello, I have been offline for a few days. Between having the flu and moving flats I have just been so stressed. Social media was not a priority Haha
However, I feel so much better and today we went down to visit Jack in Bournemouth! Me and Winter are staying with the in laws while Jack gets the flat ready so he spends most days down there on his own! We miss him so much. But today we finally got to visit him! And the sun was out, it was t-shirt weather! So lovely! We walked to the beachfront and had lunch at a place called The Wood Oven. I can highly recommend their vegan pizza!! Generous amount of tasty vegan cheese and a nice base! Cant wait to go back!
Winter’s first trip to the seaside and what will be her new home soon! So flipping cute in her lil sun hat!!❤❤
Such a great day!! Sad to be leaving Jack and to be heading back to London.. But we’ll be back soon😊
I also scoffed this vegan brownie! So yummy but wow was it rich! Still feel full from it Haha So many vegan options everywhere down there!!
Can not believe that that on Sunday we’ll be locking up this place for the last time! Unless we decide to move back in a few years of course😉 I still feel like sh*t, definitely got the flu. Fever is finally gone but got a bad cough, aches and the energy level are nonexistent..
I am so excited to move to Bournemouth and be living by the sea side. I’m so happy that Winter will be growing up in a beautiful place with nature on the doorstep! I don’t mean to hate on London, we have had some great times here but it’s not the place I want to raise my child.
Anyhow, trying to use up the last bits in the freezer and had these 2 yummy meals this week. They’ve been sitting in the freezer for a while! Cant wait to be settled in to our new flat, do a massive food shop and start cooking again.
Recipe for my Harissa Chickpeas, carrot and kidney beans here!
Before going vegan my favourite chocolate bar was Snickers so when I read a comment regarding the Eat Vive peanut bar tasting like Snickers I was like “oh lord I need to get some of these bars!!!!”
Eat Vive are doing a special at the moment where you can buy 12 bars for £12! Usually its 12 for £16. You get 4 each of salted caramel, hazelnut and peanut.
For some reason I was only charged £10.71 at the checkout. Not sure why but hey win for me!
These are protein bars made without artificial ingredients. They are vegan, gluten free and each bar packs 10grams of protein!
I didn’t really buy them for the protein though Haha I just wanted some chocolate bars!😜
So here we go!
Salted Caramel 6/10
This is my least favourite. Doesn’t really taste much of salted caramel and wish they’d put a bit more of the crunchy bits in! Bit sickly sweet.
I love hazelnut and chocolate together, just wish there would have been more chunky bits of nut in this bar. But I did enjoy it!
This was my fave! But it’s no way near the taste of a Snickers bar!! Again I wish there were more chunky bits of peanuts! If you’re looking for a vegan Snickers like me, keep looking 😉
I have been quite generous on the scoring because these bars are not supposed to be just a normal chocolate bar, they are protein bars after all and they are really tasty as far as protein bars go! They don’t taste gritty or artificially sweet.
Would I buy again? Probably not.. But was nice to try something new!
Happy Tuesday! I still feel unwell, starting to think it might be the flu.. I HATE being sick. I’m used to going outside every day and I know I need to rest but I hate just sitting at home! And I’m terrified that my lil girl is gonna catch whatever I have! Fingers crossed she’ll be ok!
I had this pizza from sainsbury’s last night. It had been reduced so thought I’d give it a go. Was actually really nice but why are they so stingy with the “cheese”!! Was so little on there they might as well have left it off! But saying that I would buy it again, only when its reduced price though! Haha
Keen to try their other vegan pizza too! Its Indian spiced if I remember it correctly?🤔
Hope you are all feeling well and not as rotten as me! If you got any good remedies suitable for a breastfeeding mama let me know??😇
Today my beautiful baby Winter Belle turns 3 months! The time has gone so fast. Its amazing seeing how much she has grown and how much she’s learned!! Every day is an adventure with my lil girl!! So blessed to have my little girl!! She brings so much happiness in to our lives❤
Sharing my life with this bundle of joy is more than I could ever ask for!
I have had a fever for 2 days now! So very frustrating especially as we got so much to do before the move!! I have managed to go through all my clothes already which is great. Ended up with 5 massive bags going to charity and Jack’s gonna start bringing stuff down to Bournemouth tomorrow! The new tenants are moving in on the 15th! Cant believe that we won’t be living here anymore by the end of next week! It’s been our home for 4 years. But who knows we might be back😆
Made this big bowl of porridge this morning. Been a while since I’ve had porridge, it’s been mostly semolina or overnight oats lately!
Me and the husband absolutely love Nandos. He’s a meat eater and I’m a vegan (obvs) and we both love Nandos and must have gone hundreds of times! When I was pregnant with Winter we went pretty much every weekend!😜
So easy to make their veggie stuff vegan by asking for no mayo or cheese on the salads, burger etc.
I always go for the Supergreen Pita (no mayo) and a side of chargrilled veg!
I hope you all have a great Saturday! I’m currently feeling horrendous 🤧 got a fever.. Haven’t been sick like this for over a year! So scared that I’ll pass it on to my lil baby Winwin! Would hate to see my girl sick😥 fingers crossed I’ll feel better tomorrow!
