Hi, and welcome to my blog! I’m Carly, a 33 year old Mum living in a little seaside town in Essex with my other half, 2 kids and our dog.
My blogging started its life as a dieting Instagram account and my blog was somewhere to keep my recipes. This still continues to be my page today but I decided to change it up a bit! Recently, I found out that I have Joint Hypermobility Syndrome; a chronic condition that causes joint pain along with other issues. One of them being food intolerance’s. My main intolerance is Gluten so this has changed my diet in a big way. My Instagram now reflects this and I try to make sure my recipes are adaptable to be both gluten and lactose free.
My other aim is to move away from “diet culture”. There are many issues with particular dieting companies and I want to promote a healthy relationship with food. I try to live a healthy lifestyle because I enjoy it and it makes me feel good. I will also eat a large takeaway pizza, and sides, to myself if I want to! No regrets. That’s what I want to promote more of: Balance! I have learnt to have a good relationship with food and now I’m learning to love myself.
My blog is here to cover all aspects of my life: Healthy Food, Beauty and Makeup, Health (mental and physical) and of course, Family.
So come, follow my ramblings, check out my recipes and maybe pick up some tips on creating a healthier you and loving your body inside and out.
