Tantalisingly Tasty Tofu! YES really!!! & FREE show tickets!


Tantalisingly Tasty Tofu! I know! 😛 Some of you hate tofu! It’s bland. It has the texture of congealed custard. It just isn’t something you eat! I know! 🙂 That was me about two years ago!

Back to Basics: Houmous!


Back to Basics: Houmous You know, houmous is one of those things which automatically gets added to the weekly shop without too much thought but it’s really so simple to make your own and takes about as long to make as it does to wrestle the box out of the cardboard sleeve and remove the plastic! 😀 Houmous (or hummus / humus) is…

Thinker… or do-er?


Thinker… or do-er? Something a little bit different today as I’ve realised the ‘Life’ side of LifeDietHealth is getting a bit neglected! 😛 Some of you may know that I’ve been studying to be a Life Coach 🙂 but this often gets pushed aside for my nutrition studies! 😀 Surprisingly I have discovered that I am more and more becoming…

Delicious Dolma… quick & easy stuffed peppers, aubergines & tomatoes


Delicious Dolma… stuffed peppers, aubergines & tomatoes In a previous life (well… it certainly feels that way sometimes)!
