All things christmassy! A round-up of randomness...

Gosh...i don't think i've posted this much in as long as i can remember... going crazy guns before Christmas hits. Got to take that downtime!!

I also think it's probably not a cool thing to say 'gosh' and i've been using too many of these (....) again! Oh well, it's Christmas i'm excitable and EVERYTHING is allowed.

I had so many funky festive recipes I wanted to make in the run up to Christmas and I have barely scratched the surface- I blame Wholeplus entirely as I've had so many foodie parcels to send in the last 6 weeks it's been all quite overwhelming!

I will update more on that front in the New Year...need to make a few website tweaks and re-vamps (another Christmas project maybe!?)

But one little thing i will say is PLEASE consider subscribing to my mailing list.... you can see it in the side bar and I am planning to send emails about once a month and it will bring Wholeplus and Including Cake together including: thoughts, nutrition, recipes, wellness, coaching, special offers and other tit bits.... It's Christmas and i'd love you forever if you did tap in your email :-)

This is the most random of roundup's...

  • my own fav christmas recipes
  • festive fun foodie things I wanted to make...but ran out of time
  • IG inspirations (I am giving a Christmas shoutout every day of december- IG usernames are credited below the collage image.

Please feel free to share your own links to cool things or your creations in the comments!

Also if you don't follow me already... PLEASE hook up with me on Instgram- click on the insert in my sidebar. Even when life gets crazy and I can't blog everything or slooow down with getting posts up, ilm still pretty active every day on IG so come and find me there ;-)

What are you going to be making over Christmas?  

This weekend I'm going to stock up with heathy treats to carry me though... the fudge (as below) plus lots of variations of my crazy courgette cake with different flavours and topping cut into small squares for nibbles! Plus hopefully a Christmas pud (as below)

Inspired in July

Summer sunshine… trail runs through the fields in the early morning sun… working outside… eating dinner in the garden enjoying the evening warmth.

July has been a feel good month. There is something about the sunshine that soothes the soul, maybe literally massaging away all the stress of life under the warmth of the rays. It's hard to be down when the sun is in the sky and this month has seen the bluest skies so far the year. 

That also means this month has seen a lot of coconut water drinking… particularly my banana coconut smoothie. The shorts and strappy tops have made appearance and it's lovely to be able to take a trip out for the day without having to worry about taking a jumper of a raincoat.

Long may the sunshine continue!
