Zizzis was a hit!

โ€‹Today I went to Zizzi’s for the first time – I have always avoided it because I don’t like pizza or pasta and I don’t eat dairy for medical reasons so it really was my worst nightmare – but being as I saw on the email they had a good selection of Vegan food AND it was BOGOF my friend came with me in support ๐Ÿ™‚ 

We had Garlic Bread, Tuscan Potatoes, Pizza (less the vegan cheese) and Lentil Ragu – It was all sooooooo nice and the staff knew all about Veganuary and chatted with us about it ๐Ÿ™‚ (Thanks daniel!)

It is definitely getting me past the ‘vegans only eat salad’ mindset that I had when I started ๐Ÿ™‚

They even boxed up my left overs which I had for dinner ๐Ÿ™‚ 


Cooking for 1? Or 100?

I realise now why I’m so fat.. portion control is not my thing!

I literally made enough of this to feed a small army and my small army are not participants in this challenge! Especially after the post school McDonald’s trip that left my car smelling amazing ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ thanks kids! 

I’ve managed to eat half and freeze half I presume I won’t poison myself reheating it but I guess we will find out eventually ๐Ÿ™ˆ

Oh and I found out not all quorn is vegan. They don’t want to make this easy do they #Fail

Food glorious food…..!

Day 4. All I can think about is food. 

Not even necessarily non vegan food either

I just want to eat and eat! Is this normal? I’m starving!

I was good at work today and had reheated vegan cottage pie and a banana and raisins and kettle chips….. #Hungry

My first official veganish cooking success!

So after my very expensive shop i felt i had to take a photo of all the food i got

Ok some of it may be slightly more veggie than vegan but shhhhh dont tell the food police ๐Ÿ™ˆ

So i opted to make a veganish version of something i love- cottage pie

Quorn mince, spring onion, carrots, peas and mashed potato – i don’t do dairy normally anyway so this hasn’t been much of a change for me – i was however confused about the gravy part and threw in some bisto which i think was probably not technically vegan but nevermind
And here was the finished article- which i was pretty pleased about to be honest ๐Ÿ˜ if i hadn’t made it i wouldn’t have known it had no meat in it!


After lots of health problems last year I saw a post for Veganuary – after reading it I thought it would be a good challenge to start the year off!

I’m not sure I’ll manage the month but I’m going to give it a pretty good go!

So look out for lots of very confusing meal ideas and follow my journey o (hopefully) losing a stone and feeling much better 

Skinny Mint Detox Tea

I’m sure the money I have spent on diet products I could have just had all the fat sucked out by now!!

But here I am trying another new product!

I have been intrigued as to whether a ‘tea’ can actually help you lose weight, after all its just a few herbal bits thrown in a mesh bag and dunked in hot water right?

This does come with some vague instructions on some diet changes, cut out processed food, sugar, and try and swap all white versions to brown (rice, bread etc) so that’s some fairly basic advise!
There is also a small 30 day exercise plan, with nothing too strenuous on so we will see how that goes!

There are 2 bags of tea for this detox – a morning boost with natural caffeine and a night time ‘cleanse’ (laxative I’d imagine!) and you have one of each everyday for 28 days.

Today I did my not very glamorous ‘before’ photos and weighing in at 173lbs – Wish me luck!
