With a relocation 300 miles north underway and the start of the Birds Eye campaign, my life is more than a little hectic right now. Simple recipes are definitely how I’m rolling.

I’ve had a bit of breathing space from work and i’ve finally got myself back in the kitchen for long enough to do a spot of batch cooking. The fridge was totally out of control with surplus amounts of random vegetables and Greek yogurt from the various recipe work i’ve been doing. It felt good […]

Following the 5:2 diet as I am, I’m eating a lot of soup for my lunch on fast days. Home made definitely tastes better as you can get lots of flavour packed in, but keep an eye on the calorie content at the same time. This week’s effort is a wonderfully cheap soup to make. […]

I’m still following the 5:2 diet where twice a week I eat 500 calories worth of food, and on the remaining five days I eat whatever the hell I like. It’s the simplest diet i’ve ever followed and after starting out as a bit of an experiment has rapidly become second nature. I’ll not bang […]

IF diet meal ideas
