Felt like something a bit different for lunch today, and earlier in the week was craving a baked potato. . 1 large potato: cut star or cross through the top, cook. Smoosh a little to open, then mash insides with a fork. Add whatever you want. Serve. . I added almost half a small avocado, savoury yeast flakes, vegan cheese, a dash of Nuttelex to help with the melti-ness and texture, and baked beans. (I'm not normally a big baked beans fan, however for some reason I just felt like adding them.) . #lunch#bakedpotato#bakedspud#vegan#vegetarian#healthyliving#healthybeing#healthybody#healthyfood#healthyeating#healthylife#noexcuses#noregrets#yum#budgetliving#budgetmeals#costcutting#cheapmeals

Things have been extremely challenging for me lately. As a result, my health too
Things have been extremely challenging for me lately. As a result, my health took a bit of a knock a week ago which resulted in me actually taking a day off and going to the doctors, something I don't often do. And normally, when that time of the month comes round I have one day of super emotion. This time, because of everything, I have had an entire week of crying at the drop of a hat and all other side effects I don't normally deal with escalated... Which is not fun. And for the first time ever, don't get me started on Christmas... I am so far behind. . I keep saying "I don't have time to do stuff for me. I have too much going on. I don't have any time!" But the truth is, whether I have or not, I need to make time. Because who is this benefiting? No one. . I can't solve everything, most of it is out of my control and Rome wasn't built in a day. But we can do little bits that are within our control. . Spend time in the garden. De-clutter or re-organise a space (such as bringing my stones out of hiding - though I am going to find them a new home). As un-fun as this sounds, do some housework. Make sure we are filling our bodies with healthy, tasty, nutritious foods. For those trying to study as well, it is absolutely awful, I know, but every module done is another one out of the way. Carry an object around with you that you can redirect your attention to when you start to feel the emotions bubbling (such as a fidget cube, spinner, clicker, stone, etc). . While we may not always have the solution or see the end of it, we must always keep our eyes open as we never know when that answer may appear. It will get better. . #health#healthyliving#healthybeing#healthybody#mindfulliving#mindfulbeing#mindfullife#mentalhealth#bekindtoyourself#taketime#taketimeforyou#noexcuses#bepatient#bepatientwithyourself#stress#anxiety

It's funny. I seem to be able to kill hard to kill plants (aloe, mother-in-law's tongue), but seem to have miraculously brought a couple of these guys back from the brink. (A couple of others I'm still working on.) . My #poinsettia has revived and is showing new leaves, colour, and starting to look quite healthy again. . My #fuschia hybrid has in the last couple of weeks grown some buds and new leaves, despite me being ready to dig it up thinking it had died. . My new #spiderplant baby seems to have perhaps taken root. This little guy will at this stage go on a shelf in my kitchen. These guys are another awesome air purifying plant. I have the parent plant and and one adopted and revived from a family friend upon moving in set up outside, but I would like an indoor one too. . My hanging #hoya has started flowering again. (The one on my fence can't decide.) I recently discovered the nectar from the flowers is safe for consumption. It seriously tastes like honey or agave syrup! . #plants#plantlife#plantmum#proudplantmumma#garden#gardenista#gardening#turningbrownthumbsgreen#mygarden#myhome#myplants#flora

Been a while, so a little bit to catch up on. . My strawberry has its first flower since I purchased it! So I may get my first strawberry sometime soon! Such a pretty little flower too... . My Meyer lemons are growing! And new ones appearing! . Raspberries!! Woohoo! (Obviously not ripe yet, but they seemed to come out of nowhere!) . Signs of a little zucchini growing! Even though tiny ants are helping themselves to the flower... and new growth in both plants! . The flowers of my cherry tomato plant are still making up their minds, however the plant is definitely a little taller than before... . 2 of my 3 bean plants. The 3rd is on the bottom right of screen. Yes, I confess, as they are showing signs of growing beans above the wire, I have been feeding them back down again in order to actually be able to access them. Lol. . Blueberry plant is still deciding whether to continue to grow the blueberries it's hinting at or give me false hope again. . #ediblegarden#vegetablegarden#veggiegarden#vegetables#fruit#plantsofinstagram#plantmum#proudplantmumma#garden#gardenista#gardening#turningbrownthumbsgreen#mygarden#myhome#selfsufficientlivinggoals#strawberries#lemontree#lemons#raspberries#zucchini#tomatoplant#climbingbeans#costcutting#organicgardening#budgetliving#sustainablegarden#ineedabiggergarden

While I've been frustrated with the state of my finances lately, it probably doesn't help that over the last couple of months I've kinda bought these guys to join my growing plant family... (The intention being reduce the number of ornaments and display items in favour of plants.) . The #ivy and #peperonia are to go indoors, one in my bedroom, one in my bathroom. Both are considered to be air purifying plants, which is exactly what I was wanting. So is #bamboo, so my new little guy is going on my laderax in my lounge/dining, and being "lucky bamboo" will hopefully bring some luck my way. Lol. . A #guzmania to join my little #bromeliad collection gifted to me by one of my aunts, bringing it to 3. . And a #blackberry plant to join my edibles. . #plantlife#plantsofinstagram#plantmum#proudplantmumma#garden#gardenista#gardening#turningbrownthumbsgreen#mygarden#myhome

Despite the crazy weather of last week, and despite the damage to some of my plants, some have also brought me joy. . I forgot to grab a pic of my gorgeous new monstera deliciosa leaf as it uncurled last week. Fortunately it still has its newbie texture to it. (If you've ever touched a newbie monstera leaf you'll know what I'm talking about.) It must be liking its new spot as it's already starting to grow another new leaf already! . Was going to try and grow a little spider plant as part of a Christmas gift, but I think I left it a little too late, and it might not be ready in time. But that's okay. If not, it can become my new kitchen plant. . My hoya is starting to flower again! Yay! . I thought I'd killed my adopted poinsettia. It got SUPER stressed out shortly after it arrived and was not a happy plant at all. Finally, however, it seems to finally be settling down now, and there seems to be some new growth appearing, so fingers crossed it re-establishes itself. . #mygarden#garden#gardening#gardenista#turningbrownthumbsgreen#organicgardening#plantsofinstagram#plants#plantmum#proudplantmumma#monsteradeliciosa#spiderplant#hoya#poinsettia#flora

Well, we have had the mother of all springs this week. So I thought I'd better survey the damage. Fortunately, despite some damage to some of my plants, the edibles are all absolutely fine. . While my blueberry plant decides whether it is going to fruit yet or not, it is at the very least growing. It is about twice the size it what when i got it. . I didn't get a pic of my peas because I think there is something wrong with the soil as the brand new shoots came out with what looks like powdery mildew which is weird, however my new climbing beans are doing well so far. . Despite my peas not faring so well, these guys are doing well, despite sharing the same soil... Weird. . My new-ish tomato plant is growing flowers! Yay! A very good sign considering my last attempt at tomatoes didn't even come close. . Baby lemons! Mum's hoping they'll grow by Christmas so she doesn't have to buy one. Lol. . My raspberry bush is starting to flower/bud too! (The other one hasn't survived, but I did have a sneaky feeling that might happen). . My box planters. Beetroot growing nicely on the left, carrots in the middle, and my potatoes that needed re-staking after the storms. . Close up of my potatoes. No idea when they'll be ready, but it's interesting watching them. . #veggiegarden#vegetablegarden#ediblegarden#garden#gardenista#gardening#turningbrownthumbsgreen#veggiepatch#organicgardening#mygarden#selfsustainablelivinggoals#selfsufficientlivinggoals#vegetables#fruit#plantsofinstagram#minigarden#smallspacegardening#costcutting#growyourownfood#smallspacegardening

My second carrot. Not as hilarious as my first, but at least it will get eaten in time (and is big enough). Now here's hoping my tub carrots grow.

I could not resist buying this Vegie Roast by @vegiedelights the other day. Been tempted for months, but never been game, mostly because of all the packaging and my aim to reduce my waste. . This loaf/roast was intended to last me about 3-4 meals, but I happen to be starving tonight. So maybe 2-3. Lol. Omg it is SOOO tasty. Also added a little flair and flavour by coating the top of it in whole seeded mustard and various dried herbs. . Accompanying it is seasoned roasted carrot and asparagus, baby spinach, mashed potato (cooked with garlic powder, and mashed in nuttelex and soy milk), and seasoned steamed broccoli (nutritional yeast, soy sauce, and a pinch of salt). . So easy, quick, and tastes amazing! . #dinner#vegetarian#vegan#yum#vegetariandinner#vegetables#healthyliving#healthybeing#healthybody#healthyfood#healthyeating#healthylife#mybestlifeyet#noexcuses
