Haggis, turnip and sage mash, and carrots. A wee early Burns supper.
Haggis is so underrated in my opinion. Full of rich, spicy, meaty flavour and really easy on the purse-strings; I'd happily eat it every week.
In fact, if anyone has any suggestions on creative ways to cook with haggis, please do pass them on!
We had a lovely wee stewed fruit crumble with blackberries and custard for afters, too. Magic.
Lunch on Saturday at the fab new Turkish/Greek restaurant on St Vincent St @mezzidakia . Sister restaurant to @chaakoouk Bombay Cafe it's got some delicious veggie dishes that kept hubby happy. #glasgow#glasgowrestaurants#scotland#mezzidakia

Most of us at one point in our lives have dieted and most of us have failed.. Although this may be the case and you feel you have tried every strategy to lose weight, the fact is you need to be in a calorie deficit to lose weight... ALWAYS! I do say this a lot but people still don’t get the picture.
Stop focusing on 6 weeks time of killing yourself with diet and hating every minute of it and start focusing on long term progress and lifestyle change. Understandably it doesn’t sound as sexy as 6 week fat burn or some sh*t like that but I’m not here to bullsh*t you like most of the fitness industry. The best thing you can do is make small changes in diet and exercise and see the progress, day by day, week by week. That could be something as simple as not drinking your calories or going for almond milk or even buying a cook book and learning to cook. No one is going to want this for you... you need to ask yourself how much you want to change your lifestyle. If you’re finding it’s too much effort to key some stuff into MyFitnessPal 5 mins a day until you get to know your diet and foods in general, then there are deeper issues. Get a grip and get off the couch and make a change 🛋 Believe it or not most of the people you see in the fitness industry weren’t born that way (some were and I hate them for that too) but that’s besides the point. Enjoy fitness and health... you get one body, one life, stop complaining about it and do something about it! Peace ✌
Top Tip For Getting Results...
“DO WHAT YOU SAID YOU WOULD DO”
If you say you’re going to go to the gym 3 times per week .... DO IT!
If you say you’re going to start tracking your calories... DO IT!
If you say you’re going to stop drinking as much alcohol at the weekend.... DO IT!
If you say you’re going to start walking more... DO IT!
Drop the bullshit excuses and just do what you did you would do.
You’ll see far greater results.
My first job after uni, as a designer, was at @wearematerial and I couldn’t have asked for a better studio to start my career in. A super supportive team led by a kickass Creative Director, Lynn Mcbean combined with an amazing selection of clients meant I was able to dabble in a variety of specialisms. One of my favourites was escaping off screen and getting hands on with some paper crafting for the BAFTA New Talent Awards. I returned back to a more low key, hand crafted aesthetic to tie in with the award which supported folk who were just starting out and probably had a small budget to create their piece. We also decided to collaborate with GSA and involve one of their photography students @kimberleygrant , again to support and combine the idea of encouraging New Talent.
Healthy Shop on a Budget!
Every now and then I hear the excuse "I just can't afford to eat healthy." And then it's usually the same person that tells me they eat 2 - 3 takeaways a week 🤔🤔.
This is a weekly shop for 2 people for only £35! (Only £17 each!?) I was able to get about 7-10 days worth of fruit/veg, protein, carbs, fats (Not pictured as I got them the day previous.) and some treats (we're only human 😊!)
Fruit & Veg 🍉🥑🥗
1kg Brocolli - Buying Frozen means it will last longer and turns out cheaper at only 87p.
1kg Green Beans - Again, frozen to last longer, and at 87p
2 avocado - Not something we have a lot, but it's a great fat source to throw on some toast, smoothie or just eat with a spoon (We're not normal😖.) Only £1.79
12 Apple's - an apple a day keeps the doctors away 😉 only 87p a packet
3 stir fry packets - for easy meal prep - Only £1.05 a packet.
Butternut spaghetti - same as stir fry, great easy meal prep ingredient.
2kg chicken breast - everyone's favourite protein source - at only £5/kg I was scared that it would be water filled and rubbish, but they're just as good as MF or any other supermarket.
1kg Turkey mince - got each 500g packet on special at only £1.87 - great lean protein source for spaghetti, pasta or burgers.
500ml skyr strawberry - May not be the most lean source, but it's perfect for smoothie or to put over fruit - 80p
Fats (Not in the picture!) 🥜
1kg peanuts - £2
Olive Oil - £1.40
500g peanut butter - £1.19
1kg Basmati Rice - This was cheaper than the brown rice, however, although basmati is a white rice, it still has a low GI very similar to brown rice - £1.05
1kg Sweet potatoes - On special at 89p
Wholewheat pasta - High in fibre, perfect to go with the mince.
Frosties - £1
(Not in the pictures.)
Low kcal popcorn - 89p
Aldis version of no sugar monster - 49p
Dark chocolate - 99p
Pop chips - 99p
