  2. All things bowels!!!

    Well, this is often a question that comes up and post any surgery bowels can be a pain in the bum!!!

  5. Food mistakes - keeping it real :-)

    I went to the shop today. I make everything homemade and dont use anything with a barcode on it much if ever. But today in some sort of ditziness, I bought 2 cans of organic soup and 2 sachets of chobani yogurt. I don't know why I didn't check the labels but I came home and liquidised the soups in the vitamix and put them in my little single servings. They are gross! Why did I not just make the bone broth chicken and lentil which gives me heps of protein and suits me?!
    Then I tried some of ...
