Don’t Eat Carbs

I’m tired of hearing/reading the following statements: ‘Don’t eat carbs; they make you fat!’ ‘I’m sticking with meat only; carbs are bad for you,’ ‘I’m only having a tiny bit of carbs, and I don’t wanna get fat.’ Those statements are common, amongst many others. I’m tired of hearing them! Not only are they wrong,Continue reading “Don’t Eat Carbs”

Sausage Rolls

Sausage Rolls Years ago, I used to enjoy feeling peckish, as it was a signal for me to visit Greggs and purchase a sausage roll x2. Feed myself and gorge on these cheap eats and real meats. I look back and accept I did that. I was lured by their definition of a bargain. ButContinue reading “Sausage Rolls”

I See You

I See You I often pretend that you don’t exist, as if I’ve no idea what you look like, or rather, who you look like. After my shower, the mirror in the bathroom is too steamy to notice.

Body Parts

Body Parts I have one body, I have many parts. I dote on some parts and wish others were better looking. Why do I do this? Why do you do this? Why do we behave in this manner? Society consistently tells us, through voice, words and images that we should look a certain way. OnceContinue reading “Body Parts”

Why Plant-Based?

Why PlantBased? For the Animals Years ago, I was off work due to feeling ill. While in bed and when I owned a television, I clicked onto a link via Twitter.

Tiger Tiger

Tiger TigerYears ago, I boarded a scale, comparing the results to a Health Weight Chart, which informs me I’m overweight. I know such charts are there to provide users with what may be deemed as factual information, but it doesn’t fill me with hope. It delivers anxiety to me, in bulk.What it tells me isContinue reading “Tiger Tiger”
