I QUIT SUGAR 8-WEEK PLAN (weeks 3 to 6 in review)

It’s hard to believe I am in Week 7 already. The fears I used to harbour around quitting sugar have now completely dissipated. I am by no means saying I plan to eat 100% sugar-free for the rest of my life, but I am convinced that quitting sugar is far easier than many would have had […]

I QUIT SUGAR 8-WEEK PLAN (weeks 1 & 2 in review)

Hi all! Firstly, I apologise for neglecting to respond in good time to the lovely comments on my previous IQS post. Traveling, working and general “mama life” have prevented me from being here as much as I’d like at all. As those of you who have read my previous IQS-related posts will know, I own a […]

ABOUT TO BOARD THE “I QUIT SUGAR” TRAIN FOR THE 8-WEEK PROGRAM (plus weekly menu planner template for FREE downloading!)

Before I start the official IQS 8-week program on June 5, I thought I’d share a meal plan that I came up with, doing IQS solo-style a few weeks ago, using I Quit Sugar For Life as a guide-book, along with inspiration from Sarah Wilson’s blog, Instagram account and the IQS website. If you take a look at the […]

OUR FOOD REVOLUTION WEEK! (cooking with Poh, Jamie Oliver, Maximillian Lundin, friends & kids… phew!)

Hi lovelies! Hope you all had a fabulously foodie Food Revolution Day (or a good regular Friday the 16th of May, if you didn’t take part ;) ). I “cheated” a little again this year and celebrated FRD in numerous ways over multiple days (not that Jamie would mind, I am sure). My week began in a cooking […]

FOOD REVOLUTION DAY 2014 (get onboard with Jamie Oliver & a global community of foodies of all ages on May 16!)

There’s just one week to go until Food Revolution Day is upon us again. Haven’t heard of it before? You’re welcome to check out my post about what we got up to for FRD 2013. For FDR info in a nutshell, read on. Or you can get all the information you possibly need, plus tips, links, […]

SUGAR-FREE EASTER TREATS & BEETROOT RED VELVET CUPCAKES (for an IQS-inspired celebration)

It seems as though I am always in the midst of some kind of health-kick around the approach of Easter! Maybe it’s the masochist in me, but I’d prefer to think it’s simply a matter of loving the challenge of creative problem solving. Baking is a joy to me, especially on festive occasions. So, not to be deterred […]

SIMPLE HOLIDAY-THEMED CHEVRON BUFFET LABELS (another little printable gift to you)

And hot on the heels of the thank you tags and hot chocolate jar labels, come the quasi-retro chevron buffet labels! Designed for an Advent-themed crafting night supper I held for the girls three weeks ago (on the other side of the planet from where I now sit and type!), my original buffet labels had all […]

“NICE” REFINED SUGAR-FREE APPLE PARSNIP GHOST & MUMMY CUPCAKES WITH “SLIGHTLY NAUGHTY” VEGAN BUTTERCREAM (plus Halloween/All Souls’ round-up with links to recipes & FREE templates!)

Halloween, Dia de los Muertos, All Hallows’ Eve, Alla helgons dag/All Saints’ Day… yes, it was a big weekend for many people around the world. Here in Sweden, the “American version” of Halloween is a relatively new celebration, and not one as yet embraced or understood by all Swedes. Case in point, my husband’s grandmother called from the […]

APPLE PARSNIP CAKE WITH MAPLE SYRUP & PECANS + WHIPPED CREAM CHEESE FROSTING (AKA Hello, my new favourite cake!)

My dear husband’s birthday was this week- and birthdays always mean cake in our house- so, yet again, I was given the perfect opportunity to try a new recipe. Allowing seasonal, organic produce to dictate the direction this cake would take, I searched and came across a fabulous looking recipe that I couldn’t look passed. […]

DELICIOUS GREEN LENTIL & VEGGIE SOUP (AKA hello again… & hello autumn!)

C’est moi! Yes, your prodigal sweet-toothed blogging friend has finally returned after what has proved to be a wonderful yet insanely busy summer. My thanks to all those who have read/written/stayed tuned… and my humble apologies for the extended and unforseen period of absence. This year has flown by! Autumn is here, and its pretty […]
