I haven’t used pads or tampons in 12 months

I used to dread my period each month. The moods, the feeling icky, being reminded you have your period each time you go to the toilet, the having to change pads and tampons all day and night, the general crappiness of the whole situation.

Unless you’re too busy, then you should meditate for an hour a day.” Or something like that. I imagine said ‘some’ are too busy, or ... Continue reading

We’ve been enjoying coleslaw a lot lately. It reminds me of the 80s, but there’s something really delicious about crisp vegetables coated in creamy home-made mayo. The weather is cooling down though and I wanted to try something a bit different that would hit the spot in the colder months. Brussels sprouts make up the bulk ... Continue reading

All over the interwebs, I’m seeing clarified butter being referred to as ghee and ghee being referred to as clarified butter, and statements about them being the same thing.
