Travel whilst pregnant 

Being 22 weekend pregnant my husband and I decided we would take the opportunity to go on a baby-moon which is essentially a holiday whilst pregnant to just be a happy couple and have a bit of us time.

When me and Andrew first got together we went to Venice for our first holiday and it was great although we stayed in a hostel so wasn’t as romantic as it could have been so we decided to go again but this time stay in a hotel. It was much better. We stayed for 4 days 3 nights and really enjoyed it

Before we set off I made sure the travel insurance we purchased covered us should something happen involving my pregnancy and photocopied my pregnancy notes. I even bought flight socks which as I’ve never used any before I can say they are actually surprisingly comfy and my legs didn’t feel quite as “heavy”.

Whilst away I had growing pains once a day for about half an hour and Henry had a growth spurt or more accurately I did. I woke up the day after getting there and my stomach seemed to have sprung out of nowhere but apparently that’s a thing that happens…. Something else which provided entertainment is it was whilst away on this romantic getaway my breasts decided to start leaking clear fluid… Why is pregnancy so God damn sexy!

Packing was a bit hit and miss I wish I had brought lip balm and a different moisturiser for my stomach. It was that cold being January and all, I didn’t wear any of the nice clothes I packed and ended up wearing as many layers as possible and my coat the entire time!

Andrew was really patient with me which was amazing he didn’t rush me and constantly reminded me to go and pee before we left anywhere. Was always there to rub my back when Henry decided to push or pull or whatever it is he has been doing on the inside. So all in all it has been an amazing and very enjoyable trip. I just need a holiday now to recover from this holiday ha ha 😂






Day 4 meat free

To start the day off right especially on my day off!! Woop! I made a juice 🙂

8 small carrots
3 small apples
1/2 inch peeled ginger
1 small orange
6 inches of cucumber

Tastes soooo nice!

Andrew then made scrambled egg on toast! He makes the best eggs ever nom!


We went to Ikea today…which was dangerous but we only spent a little bit so all is good 🙂 could have come back with too much stuff!

After this we went to Frankie and Bennys with our friends Louise and Ryan. Its never something I’ve noticed before but WOW how slim are the pickings for vegetarians? There were about 5 options overall with a disclaimer at the bottom saying the food was prepared alongside everything else. This is kinda disgusting really, you make a life choice and have it undermined by food chains!
Anyway i had the vegetable burger and Andrew had the red french pizza 🙂 both very tasty 🙂

We got home about 8pm and wern’t really hungry so we didn’t have any dinner last night but i made some breakfast bars. As getting up early to make breakfast is not my thing!
There is a separate post all about the recipe and where and why 🙂

What to do with the juicer pulp!

Ok so now that i have a juicer, i have become very aware of the fact that it leaves a LOT behind.


I have scoured the internet for some solutions on how NOT to waste all that fiber!

9 Ways to Make the Best of Your Juice Pulp

By: Jamie Webber

It’s a common question for those of us who love juicing our fruits and vegetables… “What can I do with the pulp that is leftover after I juice my produce?” Good news is there are plenty of ideas to inspire you to start using the pulp so it doesn’t go to waste.

1. In the mood for something warm? Add it to your next soup recipe or make your own veggie broth.

2. Add to your favorite vegetarian burger recipe. It adds flavor, texture, moisture and nutrition.

3. Use pulp from homemade cinnamon hazelnut milk to make Raw Cinnamon Rolls!

4. Add it to your next smoothie recipe to add in additional fiber. You’ll be surprised how you won’t be able to taste it!

5. Add pulp to add nutrients to delicious muffins.

6. Compost your pulp and add it to your garden.

7. Make an Italian favorite into a nutrient rich dish by using pulp to make vegetarian Spaghetti & Meatballs

8. If you don’t have time to use the pulp immediately, you can place it in resealable bags and freeze it until you are ready. While some of the nutritional value may be lost when freezing, most of the fiber will remain.

9. Feed it to your furry friends! Add a little leftover kale pulp to your dog’s food bowl, they will scarf it down.

What Do I Do with Leftover Juice Pulp?

By Tess Masters

One of the questions I get asked most about juicing is “What can I do with the juice pulp?” Tons of things! Read on for 20 of my favorite uses for leftover juice pulp—and get inspired to reduce your food waste and make fantastic use of healthful fiber.

1. Blend pulp into a smoothie to add fiber.
2. Add to a soup to thicken and boost fiber and nutrient density.
3. Use fruit pulp to make frozen “pulpsicles” or fruit pulp ice.
4. Make a veggie broth by boiling pulp with water, herbs, and spices, then straining.
5. Make a “fruit tea” by boiling fruit pulp with water, adding spices such as cinnamon or ginger, cooling, and then straining.
6. Use veggie pulp to add nutrient density to mac n’ cheese or pasta sauce, or layer into a lasagna.
7. Make fabulous fruit leathers.
9. Use in homemade veggie burgers or fritters. Pulp adds moisture, flavor, and nutrition.
10. Mix pulp into baked goods like muffins, cakes, bread,  dehydrated or baked cookies, and granola bars. Celery, onion, carrot, sweet potato, spinach, apple, and berry all work beautifully.
11. Use fruit or veggie pulp to add flavor, texture, and moisture to pancakes.
12. Make dehydrated pulp crackers.
13. Use pulp for raw pizza crust.
14. Make pulp marmalade.
15. Make a pulp crumble by mixing pulp with fruit and juice, reducing, and then topping with oats, spices, nuts, or seeds.
16. Dehydrate and make trail mix with raw nuts, seeds, and dried fruits.
17. Dehydrate and use like bread crumbs.
18. Use in DIY skincare recipes like scrubs, masks, and soap.
19. Mix pulp into your dog’s food or make dog treats.
If all else fails:
20. Feed it to your chickens, freeze it in ice cube trays to use later, or compost it.

*Please note, the moisture content of your juice pulp can vary depending on your juicer, so you may need to squeeze out excess juice for the best results in some of these recipes.
