Finally decided to join the #10yearchallenge - although these photos are closer to eleven years apart! Left = Taken just before this past Christmas! I was completely exhausted... Right = Taken January 2008 just after I had lost 12kgs (26.5 pounds) in just over 6 months. I am still a similar weight now, having lost another 5kgs after this and since regaining it! Such is life...
Buckwheat and Basil Salad! Recipe testing... Gluten free and dairy free, but if you can tolerate dairy, then feel free to add some feta (swipe to see). So good for lunch or a light dinner! #recipetesting #glutenfree #dairyfree #buckwheatandbasilsalad #lunch #lightdinner
Hoping this is a sign of better weather to come... Three days of rain/showers and cooler temperatures is quite enough! #newzealandweather #sunset #newzealandsummer #summer2019
This morning... Out for a walk, and I saw these gorgeous sunbursts through the trees - absolutely stunning 😍. Just couldn't help stopping and admiring the view!
Fields of beautiful wild flowers on my walk around the block in my break... #wildflowers #wildnewzealandflowers
Gluten free and dairy free lasagna, not pretty at all, but still enjoyed by all! I was a little bit sceptical trying to make lasagna dairy free - but everyone loved it, and no-one complained! Instead of sprinkling cheese over the top, I used gluten free bread crumbs, added some poppy seeds and fresh basil from our garden, and no-one missed the cheese!

Recipe testing... Rhubarb Muffins, totally #glutenfree and #dairyfree and delicious - got the family tick of approval! Considering muffins are my nemesis, I am thrilled with how these came out, and I am hopeful that they will be versatile enough to use other fruits in it as well! I also made some cereal - also #glutenfree #dairyfree and #eggfree , and made with things from my cupboard that I have on hand almost all the time! Hubby loves it, and #tastetested it by eating two bowls - I would say that is a success! #recipetesting #glutenfreemuffins #glutenfreecereal #successful #familyapproved
Courgetti Spaghetti Bolognese for dinner tonight - gobbled up by everyone in the family... Thanks to my Aunt and Uncle for the fresh courgettes yesterday, yum! #courgettispaghetti #freshveggies #glutenfree #familyfavourite #dinner
When you live in such a small town that there is no Bin Inn, you make the most of it when you have the opportunity... Today I filled jars in my jar drawer, and the rest of my stash was bagged, named, dated and now stored in the bottom of a cupboard. But I couldn't resist a photo of my colourful quinoa before popping it away! So pretty! #bininn #quinoa #colourfulquinoa #storage #stash #organised #glutenfree
