Sunday 31 July marks the 5th year I’ve been
living thriving with Type 1 Diabetes (My Diaversary). It seems like just the other day I was embarking on my wellness journey, after being admitted into ICU and subsequently diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. What a journey it has been!
Although here I discuss my condition and while it is a serious subject, I wanted to balance this post by sharing this celebratory Blueberry Chickpea Flour Pancake recipe, that is truly so delicious!!!

I just love it! Continue reading

Now that I’ve managed to get my hands on one again (thanks my love 😉 and awesome 1-day.com deals) I’ve been creating Zucchini noodles and ‘noodling’ all week!
