  • Made some bomb 💣 pancakes 🥞 again using @birchbenders plant protein pancake mix ;) I want to talk about the term HEALTHY. What does healthy mean? It means “in good health or in good physical condition”. Now let’s talk about HEALTHY WEIGHT. I use to be terrified of that term. But why? Because I was trapped in the thoughts of my eating disorder. It had convinced me being classified a healthy weight was a crime. Even worse, I was afraid being told, “You look healthy.” Until one day my very own mother broke down to me. She was afraid of loosing me. I was thin, pale, and cold. This illness had taken so much away from me. My hormone levels were so low. I was getting little nutrition. I was exhausted. Now, I’m classified a healthy weight. But! Am I going to stop there? Nope. Just because you’re at a “healthy” weight for your height doesn’t mean you have to stop there. Because we’re dealing with a mental illness. Let me say that again, a MENTAL illness. So are you really happy?

Reaching a healthy was one of my biggest accomplishments, but recovering was my biggest achievement yet! Remember, one persons healthy weight, may not be you’re healthy weight. ❤️

  • Indian street food for dinner at @chaistreet_. We both had the non-veggie chai special thali, you basically get a bit of everything which I love 💕
-
A mini starter which was chicken with salad, a chicken dish, a lamb dish, a veggie dish which was chickpeas and a side which was like bombay potatoes, with poppadoms and dip and a naan.
-
Made me kind of anxious not knowing what I was guna get and how spicy it would be but it worked out well and was all good. Love the cafeteria style tray for a novelty kinda plate too
-
Was driving so had a mocktail and water with it, ordered a mango lassi because mangos are lush right? Well I expected a fruit juice kind of drink. Nope. A mango lassi is pretty much a mango yoghurt. It's nice but weird as a drink, prob because I expected something more liquid 🤣 -
-
As far as my first experience of Indian street food goes, this place is fab 🤗

  • Flippin oatalicious flapjack and toffee sauce waffle at @cocogelatouk 🥰
-
Coco's is a place which is a proper treat for me however is also the opposite when it comes to my IBS and dairy intolerance. The cream, icecream, milk and cheeky reeses milkshake which goes with this waffle causes problems, but I'll go anyway.. so obv the waffles are gooood.
-
Why is it when you try to recreate this stuff at home, it doesn't come anywhere close 😂

Took my sister here when she last came to visit and she loved it so we're planning a return trip in a few weeks 🤗 Flippin oatalicious flapjack and toffee sauce waffle at @cocogelatouk 🥰 - Coco's is a place which is a proper treat for me however is also the opposite when it comes to my IBS and dairy intolerance.

  • Garlic bread is one of those things I always want when its on the menu but everywhere does it so different and naturally that means sometimes I'm disappointed either with the size, the bread or the garlicness.
-
The garlic bread from @wearezizzi is a solid fav though! Their garlic bread with mozzarella and caramelised balsamic onions (right) is always a dreammm. I like that the pieces are all cut up for you ready and mix and match the amount of toppings on each, meaning I obv then dig for the middle one smothered in everything 😄
-
I also tried their newer garlic bread with spicy nduja sausage and mozzarella which was super nice, a bit of spice but in no way too much and I'm a spice wuss.

  • This time last week I had the absolute pleasure of going to The Greatest Showman tasting menu event at @henry_webbs. Love the movie and obv love food so was really looking forward to this, and it exceeded all expectations!
-
It was like nothing I have ever experienced. 8 courses of beautifully presented, inventive dishes that all tasted amazing. Each dish was based on lyrics from songs in the movie, such a cool idea.
-
I had the standard menu and my friend had the veggie one so we could taste each others different dishes 🙌
-
This was my black garlic gnocchi with lamb breast, parsley and jus. I feel like this dish has turned my indifference of lamb right over 😄 one of my favourite dishes of the evening. Big well done and thanks to @garethdawchef and team for a fab menu and a fab evening 👏 This time last week I had the absolute pleasure of going to The Greatest Showman tasting menu event at @henry_webbs.

  • Blue Monday at @yosushi is the best way to start off a week! Loads of dishes priced at only £3.00 each. So obviously because I don't want to make too big a dent in my bank balance, we go at lunchtimes.. and still manage 6 or 7 dishes 😂
-
I always tend to find the foods that come as a good portion, which is totally fine by me 😄 the pumpkin katsu curry is so full its almost overflowing, and is just as tasty as the chicken one! The salmon rice has loads of little salmon chunks and although its sticky rice, chopsticks are hopeless if you're like me (peek the little spoon lol), gyozas of some sort are a standard, cannotttt go wrong there.. and the octopus balls, oh my lawwwwd so nice so soft and so creamy, 100% my new favourite Yo dish 👌

  • @thebeardedtaco at @swanseastreetfoodfestival. I'd heard veryyy good things about these guys so was super excited to give them a try 😄
-
Went for the 'Better Call Seoul' tacos which was bbq pork, kimchi slaw and sesame aioli.
-
So much filling and so much flavour and if you know me then you know I love a soft taco/tortilla wrap anyway but omggg these were honestly the best I've ever had! 🙌 -

Until the next time guys, I'll be hitting up all the other choices for sure 🥰 @thebeardedtaco at @swanseastreetfoodfestival.
