A new month has just begun and before I start getting excited about the activities that I have planned for March, I would like to do a little recap on February.
Regarding food choices, I must admit I haven’t always been healthy last month. Nothing to worry about though, because as I said before, my New Year’s resolutions were not to become a perfect eater, but to make some changes in my eating habits. Last month, when I ate junk food or drank too much, it impacted on my mood and energy for up to four days! Which made buying healthy food and cooking look a lot less fun! Thankfully it’s all back to normal in my kitchen, fridge and cupboards and I can now start telling you about all the good things that I have done last month!
Green vegetable soup (see recipe page)
- I ran a fair bit: twice a week for about an hour. Feeling good about that!
Morning riverside runs are the best!
Well it’s not always this sunny…
But the ducks are always around
and so are the rowers! (in the yellow boat)
- And the Award for Best Activity in February goes to: the live hangout with nutritionist Dr. Willett and two Food Revolution ambassadors Lindsey and Claire as part of the Jamie Oliver Food Revolution foundation. It was my 1st live hangout and as much as I would like to pretend I’m not the kind of person who gets nervous, I am. So I was pretty nervous. But discussing subjects such as “a child’s health improving thanks to healthy eating” and “school children growing veg” turned out to be so interesting that I forgot about the nervousness. Good job girls! Thank you : )

Now, what’s coming up in March?
I see cooking classes are getting popular, judging by the amount of Groupon offers I receive every day for them. So, it gave me an idea. I am thinking of setting up a cooking club. It is only just a thought yet but I might write about it soon and if I do, you will be invited to join me for some kitchen fun! Yay!
Mother’s day is coming up. I will be with my mum in France when that happens, giving us a good reason for cooking with the family. That’s something to look forward to! Don’t worry I’ll take pictures!
And then, exam stress will start. That’s NOT something I’m looking forward to, at all! Might not take pictures of that.
That is all for today. Got to get ready to go to my 11am lecture. In this beautiful weather, I am definitely walking!!
