For those avid readers of Sophie-Amelia, or pretty much just every person that I speak to – you will know of my constant battle and moaning of bloating and cramps. After multiple trips to the doctors to only be diagnosed with IBS (the same diagnosis as pretty much everyone when they can’t find a reason…) … Continue reading YorkTest – Food Intolerance Test Review – The Results, Part 1.
So last weekend, I spent my bank holiday weekend in Malton at Malton Food Festival (sorry this post is delayed – I’ve been recovering from sleep deprivation since coming back). I attended the food festival last year; however, I didn’t actually start blogging until July (my blog’s nearly a year old – eep!) so I … Continue reading Malton Food Festival, Malton
Shaolin Temples Today we woke up early and visited the Shaolin temples. Unsure of what to expect, we pulled up on the bus and walked down a walkway to the temples with different schools of monks down the side practicing Kung Fu, as well as several others marching through with flags.

Terracotta warriors: After another early rise, we got some breakfast and jumped on a 2-hour bus journey to go see the terracotta warriors. As we were informed, the terracotta warriors were an army built out of clay to protect the emperor Qin's grave. This was a very long process occupying 7,000 people to build the clay figures and began as soon as … Continue reading Travel Blog Series – China, Xi’an to Dengfeng – Post #10
We woke up around 11am and got showered (somehow feeling fresh. Paracetamols before bed works a treat) and decided to head to the town to go grab some food. Getting a taxi, which cost us 90p....we pointed on the map to the shopping center with a huge giant panda hanging off and went exploring. We … Continue reading Travel Blog Series – China, Chengdu to Xi’an – Post #9
Another river day Today we woke early again to go with the group to another river to do some kayaking. It was something that I've never done before, and it was a great laugh, just extremely tiring. (And I blistered my hands) After the morning of kayaking, we had a free day to go shopping and … Continue reading Travel Blog Series – China, Yangshuo – Post #7
So ever since I tried this dish in the Lake District, it’s been the go-to dish in our house. It’s healthy, quick, and tastes absolutely fantastic. As I’m not a big fish lover myself, this is a great way for me to integrate fish into my meals. I’ve lost count of how many times we’ve … Continue reading My go-to Healthy Meal Under 400 Calories: Fish and Chorizo Tomato Stew With Cashew Nuts
For my regular readers, you'll know that I'm a fan of quick healthy food choices. I've never been a breakfast person, and don't find myself getting peckish until late morning when I can't really make eggs at my desk. In a previous post I made my egg muffins, which are a great healthy on the … Continue reading Healthy No Bake On-the-go Breakfast Bars – Easy, Fast and Nutritious!
What an experience. To begin the day with a 5:30am start rushing around gathering our things and trying to haul down a taxi was stressful, to say the least. This morning we were to meet our tour at 7am to travel from Hong Kong to China, and the itinerary was under strict introductions 'we leave 7am … Continue reading Travel Blog Series – Hong Kong to China – Post #5
So if you've been keeping up to scratch with my Instagram stories, you will of noticed that I've recently moved house and I am very much in love with our new one.
