I find myself feeling downright silly right now. “Why?” you might ask. Because there I was, intensely brainstorming over what on Earth my next post should be about, while happily munching on my go-to gluten free, high protein VEGAN salad with a super special & super easy 4-ingredient tahini salad dressing. (Yes, “super” seems to be the word of the day.) A vegan salad that is incredibly delicious, but has for whatever reason not yet found its way on here. And neither has the tahini dressing. It wasn’t so much a ‘Eureka!’ as a facepalm moment.

You know when you have an “off” day? It’s especially after you’ve been ill for a while, and your body tries to find some semblance of balance, and starts, for whatever reason, behaving downright bizarrely. That was me a few days ago. My usual breakfast fare tends to include oatmeal (remember this chocolate peanut butter decadence?) or smoothies, or occasionally a yummy omelette. But that morning, my body decided to conduct itself like a petulant five-year-old and turned up its nose at all the usual breakfast foods. Now, this may all sound really strange to you. Nonetheless, I am a firm believer that we should listen to our bodies – which is how I ended up with a big (delicious) bowl of salad in front of me at 7am. Yep, so, that happened.

So, Christmas has come an gone (I hope you’ve all had an absolute blast!) and now New Year is rapidly approaching. And with the New Year, there inevitably come… New Year’s resolutions. But: can we just not this year. Seriously, please don’t. Why do we pin so much importance onto a completely arbitrary day in the year? I mean, it’s just a calendar, folks! Do we really need a piece of paper to tell us how to live? Sure, if you’re under about 15 years old, New Year’s Eve is so totally cool because you’re allowed to stay up ’til midnight… or maybe I’m just too old and it’s actually only cool if you’re under ten? I don’t know.
