• Whaaaaat? A photo of me! πŸ™ˆ Older followers will know I rarely post photos of me - I HATE being in front of the camera! - but I wanted to get over my silly fear, stop by and say hi, and also share some snippets about me! πŸ˜˜πŸ’– I've been tagged by a few people (the gorgeous @arabfruitlady @rachelrenelorton) to share ten facts about me, so what better place to do it?! P.S do you guys like seeing personal posts? Would you like more, or shall I stay off screen?! πŸ˜œπŸ™ˆ
πŸ’– I have three small boys: Zayn, who's four, Leo is three, Ezra is one and a half. And I have a six y o stepson, Ebs, too, with my partner Amir. Yes, it's crazy in my house - it's why I often go MIA! πŸ™ˆ
πŸ’–I love keeping fit and moving: my loves are Yoga, @sleektechnique, kickboxing and boxing (don't mess with me 😜) πŸ’– I am a trained journalist and used to work in TV, Radio and online for the BBC. I met so many wonderful people but also saw some truly heartbreaking things.
πŸ’– I have a weeeeeeird condition called Lexical Gustatory Synaesthesia. It's a rare form of synaesthesia which means all words taste of food! For example, "like" tastes of cold cucumber. Sam = soggy broccoli πŸ˜‚
πŸ’– I am double jointed and my elbows face (almost) the wrong way! πŸ’– I got into food and healthy eating after a miscarriage before I fell pregnant with Zayn. For a long time, I ate nothing at all, blaming myself, and it got pretty serious for a while. Then I felt him kick...and it all changed.
πŸ’–I used to be a punk and dressed like a boy. Now, I am super girly!
πŸ’– My favourite colour is yellow. It makes me so happy to see it, or wear it! πŸ’–I love Football! Or soccer, as some of you guys say. I am a HUGE Liverpool FC fan. πŸ’– I've always dreamed of becoming an author, ever since I was 5. I am currently working on a novel, and it's in progress now! πŸ™ˆ

    • Happy Saturday everyone! I hope you're all enjoying your weekend? I am having a very lazy one (If you count a day that started with boxing as lazy πŸ˜‚πŸ™ˆ) and spending my afternoon reading. Did you know that I used to be a librarian because I love reading so much? πŸ™Š Anyway, some of you probably saw this on my stories on Thursday, but I had so much fun making - and eating! - this fruit platter that I thought I'd share it here too. πŸ‘πŸ“πŸ₯πŸŽπŸ‡ My eldest two boys, Zayn and Leo, are away celebrating Eid with their dad this weekend, so this was a little celebration snack I made them after pre-school. They were in seventh HEAVEN and loved it! Fresh, gorgeous fruits - including HOMEGROWN strawberries πŸ“and my fave new crunchy @jazzappleuk - along with some @whitworthsuk quinoa crackers and the delicious @freaksofnaturepuds pudding pots too. Just to make it extra decadent ⭐️ For those of you celebrating in the next few days, Eid Mubarak! Have a wonderful day full of love and laughter 😘😘 enjoy your weekend all! #fruit #fruitsalad #fruits #fruitplatter #fruitporn #thrivemags @thrivemags #vegan #veganfoodporn #veganfoodshare #veganfood #tropical #summer #mango #papaya #healthybreakfast #eattherainbow #plantbased #fruitlover @foodie_features #f52grams #foodpics #sweatwithkayla #bbg #gloobyfood #bestofvegan @bestofvegan #rawvegan #raw #flatlays @flatlays #beautifulcuisines @beautifulcuisines @kayla_itsines #thechalkboardeats #thatsdarling

Now for a huge bowl of my favourite @rizopia #glutenfree brown rice pasta with my sundried tomato pesto - made with fresh mint from the garden! YUM! So so yummy!

Anyway, I have barely been in the kitchen at all, and today I have just been soaking up that sun β˜€οΈβ˜€οΈβ˜€οΈ so no new recipes and I am kinda enjoying that! But.
