I’m moving this blog

27 Jun

Hello readers,

I’m so sorry that it has been so long since I posted anything here – I’ve been busy being pregnant, having a baby and surviving the first few months of motherhood.

Now that things are starting to fall into a level of insanity than I can deal with, I’ve decided to start a fresh blog. With a fancy domain name and everything. While it won’t be just about dieting and Slimming World, I do hope you’ll join me there!

Here’s a link to the healthy eating category of the new blog. Please consider subscribing – and maybe leave a comment or two. It would be great to hear from you!

Having been a Slimming World member for some time now, I was aware that scan bran was a thing. But for the most part, I was fairly certain that it was an unsavoury thing that best be kept at a distance.

For those who don’t know what scan bran is, it’s a type of Scandinavian crisp bread. It’s basically pure bran, pressed into little cracker-shapes and it looks a lot like cardboard. In fact, on its own, it tastes like cardboard too.
