We're a family that believes you can do things your own way, and this blog is about our adventures doing just that. We try to spend our money thriftily, be healthy, make things instead of buying them, enjoy the simple pleasures of life, and raise our kids to have values that go against the flow of what they're taught by zombie Hitler. Actually just the things they learn from a consumer-oriented world, but that's bad too.

E is for Eggs and No-Sugar Update
How do we like our eggs in a morning? We like ours with a kiss ;)
Actually kisses aren't very filling so we usually eat our eggs with some meat and cheese. I do the prep and get the egg accompaniments cooked then JD takes over and scrambles the eggs in a frying pan. It's a really satisfying breakfast and a good start to the day having a meal together.
Chicken and spinach
Pek chopped ham
We try to vary the meat or way of cooking to stop us getting bored. We even tried haggis in our eggs on Burn's Night.
Corned beef and baked beans go great with a fried egg for breakfast.
We also enjoy Shak Shuka from Israel, eggs cooked in a thick tomato passata.
So yeah, we love eggs! If you've got any suggestions for something we could try with eggs then please comment below. :)
We're over 2 weeks into no-sugar month and so far it's going well. We've eaten piles and piles of vegetables and our own body weights in meat too. It's tough for me going without sweet treats because I eat them fairly often. My work colleagues are keeping an eye on me at work so I don't eat sweets but so far I haven't really been tempted.
I definitely feel like I have more energy which has made it easier for me to get back into exercising more. We're being more creative with meals and making sure to eat plenty so we don't get hungry and succumb to sugary snacks.
Sugar makes you feel crap if you eat too much, there have been times we've eaten too much these last few weeks but it doesn't make you feel the same. It's nice to feel you're giving your body good food all the time.
I'll be posting when we finish with pictures of meals we've been having. 12 days to go!
