CarolCooks2 weekly roundup…17th January-23rd January 2021…Recipes, Whimsy, Music and Lifestyle Changes…

Welcome to this week’s edition of my weekly roundup of posts…Especially for you just in case you missed a few posts during this last week…It is a lovely sunny and still morning here…a tad warmer just by a whisper and I am contemplating my day while I sip my delicious and healthy Coconut Water…

Meatless Mondays …are going well and proving quite popular… I am enjoying my meatless meals and I wish to thank everyone who has sent me tips and recipes to try you are all awesome… I will also credit back to you once I have made them and my taste testers have given their verdict…

I am gradually getting back into my healthy eating after the excesses of the festive season coupled with quarantine and as it looks like it is not going to ease at the moment I have decided that rather than have a lot to lose… I’ll start now …it’s far easier to shift a few kilos than a lot…

One thing that has amazed me is the number of new names for eating plans…so many tarians…Please!

  • Pescatarians – people who do not eat meat, but eat fish.
  • Lacto-ovo-vegetarians – eat no meat, including seafood, but do eat dairy products and eggs.
  • Lacto-vegetarians – eat dairy products but avoid eggs.
  • Ovo-vegetarians – eat eggs but not dairy products

Why can’t we just say we eat a healthy varied diet? No fads and no avoiding of various food groups(unless) of course we have a diagnosed medical condition as to why we can’t eat a specific food item…Just sensible eating with some moderation applied to certain foods …I mean who wants to live on chocolate alone???…


Wednesday I was back over at Smorgasbord Magazine for my new column…Carol Taylor’s Green Kitchen where I talk about how we can take tiny steps to make our kitchens a little greener coupled with a recipe…This week it was my favourite Sandwich Loaf Recipe which I am tweaking to make it healthier by adding stoneground Wholewheat Flour so far I added 200gms of wholewheat flour with no other changes to the recipe apart from the fact the taste has improved…Thank you to Sally for inviting me back and to everyone who has supported my new column you all rock xx

Wednesday is also the day for my Culinary Alphabet with A twist and this week it was foods and culinary terms ENDING in the letter S

The letter S…this letter is different in so much that you can add an S too so many words…Which meant I could choose words which had a plural or not…I have mixed and matched…all good fun!

It also meant that I could leave many for Pete and he didn’t disappoint I think S is the easiest to date…

Thursday: Healthy Eating …Snacking is it good for you?

Snacking can be an important part of your diet if you stick to a few simple rules…It is healthy to snack if you have a long time between the next meal…sticking it out generally doesn’t will either head for the biscuit tin or the fridge and have just one…?

It can also help stop you overeating at meal times because you are just soooo hungry…

Smorgasbord Health Column – Turning Back the Clock 2021 -Anti-Aging and the correct pH balance by Sally Cronin…

I think most of us would like to turn the clock back just a few years here Sally tells you how you can stop the march of time showing on your face and body by watching what you eat…

Coconut Water is one of natures natural cleaners drunk regularly it can improve our health…it can help rid the body of accumulated irritants, waste products and toxins.

Saturday Snippets:

Dumplings and Joan and the Jetts with I love Rock n Roll…it woke the neighbours up…lol…Rabbie Burns, Haggis, neeps and Tatties…all this week’s whimsey …Enjoy!

Well, that’s it for today…I hope you have enjoyed the read…if you have please head over and leave a comment it makes my day to hear from you …Love Carol xx
