  • Below the Line 2015: Roundup and Final Thoughts

    The food I suppose I should start with low points. I got pretty tired pretty quick of banana ‘spread’ on white toast after just two goes. Hence on the last day I was scheduled to have it, I switched a few bits around and had an egg sandwich instead. Much better. I think it was […]

  • Below the Line 2015: Day 5

    Ah, the finish line. It’s so close I can practically taste it. It tastes like apples and protein bars and overnight oats… and squash. And coffee. My God I’m spoilt. To the point where I’ve got 13p left and I’ve decided to spend 10p tonight on a Flump. Sort of sorry, sort of not. An […]

Or maybe it’s withdrawal from sugar and or caffeine… either way I’m fed up of the headache. It’s making me very grumpy! I managed to make […]

  • Below the Line Recipe: Souper Cheap Squash Soup

    Soup has long been a go-to for me. There’s nothing a bowl of something packed full of vegetables won’t cure – and as soon as I signed up to the Below the Line challenge, I knew there would be soup involved in my 5 days. This recipe really does 4 portions, but if you have […]
