An embarrassing look

I’ve been suffering from a bad shoulder since the beginning of the year (it turns out that I have a frozen shoulder) and, yesterday, I had my first physiotherapy session for it. Because of the ongoing pandemic it was via video call.

However, I should have maybe chosen a different room other than my home office to do it.

The one thing you need to know about diets

I wrote some time ago about the fact that I’d been on a diet. I lost a crazy (but not unhealthy) amount of weight and been steady around a specific weight now for over a year.

Whilst reading about a co-worker asking about diets, I stopped myself from replying to them – the thing is, one post aside, I haven’t spoken much about my weight loss, and this come back to why I didn’t reply to my co-worker. Simply put, diets are an incredibly personal choice.

Recipe: Make your own healthy baked beans

This is a first on my blog – a recipe! In this case, it’s a recipe for a healthy version of baked beans.

If you’re a WW member, then my recipe is usually about 1 point her portion, depending on the ingredients you use.

This is a modified version of a WW member provided receipt, where I’ve replaced a product that can only be purchased directly from WW, by an every-day supermarket item.

AirPod Pro? It’s the original AirPod for me

The original iPhone earphones, the EarPods, were, shall we say, not very good. When the AirPods came out, though, their much improved sound quality ensured I bought a pair. And when their batteries finally give up… I’ll be buying the same.

Don’t get me wrong, I’d love to have the AirPod Pro, with their noise reduction and even better sound. But they’re not for me.

The state of vegetarian food

In the past, I’ve mentioned how, for a number of years, I’ve reduced my meat intake (and was even totally veggie for 3 months). To do this, I’ve made use of meat alternatives, such as those provided by Quorn.

But as the vegetarian and vegan lifestyle is becoming more popular, the supermarkets are finally trying to compete with these well known brands. However, the quality of these products are, shall, we say lacking – if it’s not battered, it’s covered in breadcrumbs. There’s a lack of anything that you’d add to other ingredients – it’s all meat-free chicken nuggets and the like (just take a look at the picture above). And, sadly, the quality of the Quorn products has dropped significantly too – seemingly to match.
