Tripping Through Treacle!
Another recipe from me! This one is super-easy, quick and a hit with the kids (and my husband!). Dare I say it, I think that these biscuit bars taste alot like Hobnobs, minus the chocolate (a much-loved shop-bought sweet oat biscuit for those of you outside of the UK).
This recipe is based on one that I saw on the fabulous You Tube channel forJessBeautician- she makes delicious vegan meals and snacks. I highly recommend you check out her channel if you like plant-based food. These biscuit bars are dairy-free and can be gluten-free too (if you ensure you use gluten-free oats).
As some of you may know, I follow theOvercoming Multiple Sclerosis programmeto try and keep myself as healthy as possible. As this recommends that MSers avoid coconut products (due to its high saturated fat content), I decided to omit the coconut oil that…

Getting Fit For Forty!
As you can see from the image, I am just over 11 weeks until I head of to Ibiza for my stag do. What better reason is there to fully commit to a transformation challenge and try to finally achieve that six pack that i have been wishing for as far back as i can remember?
This of course coupled with the fact that I most certainly dont want to look fat for my wedding pics has further fueled my determination to secure this goal. If you have looked at my previous posts, this is not the first time i have looked to do this. I have tried a large number of times over recent years to the point where i feel like i am on some kind of constant diet. Whether i have been training for the boxing or taking part in the No More Bolics challenge I have…

This is MSnubutterflies!
This actually started as a chicken salad. I would make this before heading off to the gym so I would have something quick to grab as I headed to work. I used it to make a lettuce wrap or ate it with celery sticks.
My daughter loves this. It’s one of her favorites. So I started making a pasta salad so there would be enough for everyone. It’s easy and it’s another meal I can make ahead and it’s ready when they’re ready.
It can easily still be used as the original chicken salad just add chicken instead of pasta and enjoy over a bed of lettuce or as I did in a lettuce wrap.
Of course you can always do both. Pasta and chicken if you like. I make it that way for the meat eaters in the house but for me it’s a vegetarian version.
