    That's the thing ... no sugary things, cut back on crisps, but still too many carbs and not enough fruit & veg I suppose.

    Anyway, I'm not giving up .... determined to keep going this month. I suspect that my being on the wagon may even continue longer

    Very stretchy thread (was it my cartoon? If so, I'll delete it)

    I'm a carb junkie, and I never do fruit and I detest veggies ( three sprouts on my plate today, I ate one )

    However I do what I've been informed is intermittent fasting That is I don't eat for up to 16 hrs between meals. Like tonight I had my dinner at 7pm, last having eaten at 8pm Saturday night and won't eat now till 10 am tomorrow. I kind of only eat in an 8 HR period. It's the way I have always been , not something I follow as a fad or diet

    I rarely feel hungry until I break fast, hence the munchies at 3/4 pm. If I could break that habit I'd be a stick insect

    Oh, I use lard and butter and full fat milk and cheese and yogurt. In fact I'm often asked if I'd like bread with my butter

    Tomorrows night tea will see me scoff at least 4 dumplings made with animal suet - yum yum
    if you lend someone £20 and never see that person again, it was probably worth it

    Good morning lovely Alphabettys

    I hope you're all well and raring to go on this thoughtful,
    fun-filled and truly scrumptious day!



    National Apprenticeship Week 2018 - #NAW2018 - takes place
    from 5 to 9 March 2018. It is an exciting opportunity to celebrate
    apprenticeships and how they benefit people, businesses,
    communities and our economy.

    Now in its 11th year, this national week brings together everyone
    passionate about apprenticeships to encourage more people to
    choose apprenticeships as a fast-track to a great career and to
    business growth.

    The theme of National Apprenticeship Week 2018 is
    Apprenticeships Work to showcase how apprenticeships work for
    individuals, employers, local communities and the wider economy.

    Visit our dedicated pages for employers, partners, educators and
    training organisations >>>

    How can you get involved?

    This is your week, whether you are a training organisation, school,
    college, university, SME, large employer, membership body or
    interest group - we are excited to work with you to tell the story of
    apprenticeships.

    With your support, we hope to reach more people than ever before
    to inspire people of all ages, and employers of all sizes, to seize
    the opportunities apprenticeships offer.

    The easiest way to support the Week is to do so on social media
    and encourage everyone you know to do the same with
    #NAW2018. There are two landmark activities during the Week,
    with an opportunity for your involvement >>>

    British Pie Week has been running since 2007. British Pie Week
    takes place the first full week in March (starting on a Monday) and
    lasts for 7 days.

    Here at www.pierate.co.uk we whole-heartedly support British Pie
    Week. It is a great reason to celebrate a classic British tradition.
    We can't argue with the principle: a whole week eating British pies
    and a whole week promoting British pies. Whilst it started as a
    marketing campaign by Jus-Rol, the British market leaders in
    ready made pastry, it is now so much more! You can buy a pie, go
    to a fine pie restaurant or be inspired to make your own pie. It
    really is your British Pie Week.



    British Pie Week really took off in 2011. Or at least it seems to us
    that it took off in 2011 as that is when Pierate first started
    celebrating it! Since then British Pie Week has inspired us to do a
    few things we don't normally do, from baking pies to a whole day
    eating only pies, see below for a summary of our antics!

    And remember, British pies are for life, not just for a week of the
    year called British Pie Week!



    To keep up with all that is going on in British Pie Week follow
    British Pie Week on Facebook.

    British Pie Awards – March 7th 2018

    It’s All About the Pie



    The Pie is one of the icons of British cuisine. Savoury or sweet, hot
    or cold, the British eat millions of them every year.

    These Awards are a national celebration of British Pies in all their
    varieties and have been running since 2009.

    The Awards are held in Melton Mowbray, the Rural Capital of Food,
    and hosted by the Melton Mowbray Pork Pie Association

    For the purposes of the Awards a pie is defined as the following: ‘A
    Pie is deemed to be a filling wholly encased in pastry and baked’.

    Our Mission

    “The British Pie Awards is a celebration of the British Pie,
    recognising the craft and skills of those that produce them whilst
    promoting British produce and our regional specialities”


    Aims of the award:

    To celebrate the heritage of the British Pie
    To protect and promote regional specialities
    To recognise the craft of bakers, butchers and other producers
    To support British produce

    Awards:

    There will be a Champion in each of the classes. The Champion
    from each category will compete for the title of Supreme
    Champion.



    The British Pie Awards have become an institution for pastry-
    connoisseurs country-wide. Our annual event sees hundreds of
    pie-makers gather for a celebration and competition of this British
    culinary favourite. Held each year in Melton Mowbray, we are lucky
    enough to have a selection of the most knowledgeable figures in
    the industry on-hand presiding over the day’s proceedings.



    10th Anniversary

    This is the 10th Anniversary of the Awards after they were founded
    in 2009. Since then we have judged well over 7,000 pies. During
    that time the quality and range of pies submitted has increased
    significantly, a tribute to the craft and skills of the British Pie
    Maker.

    Visit our Winners page for a list of 2017 award-winners, and check
    out our Gallery page for a selection of photos from the event.

    The Awards are held in the beautiful St Mary’s Church in Melton
    Mowbray.

    Saint Piran’s Day




    Saint Piran’s Day is celebrated each year on 5th March as the
    national day of Cornwall. Saint Piran, or ‘Perran’ as he is also
    known, is famed for his discovery of the precious metal tin. Saint
    Piran is the patron saint of tin-miners and Saint Piran’s Day was
    originally observed as a ‘tinner’s holiday’ by the numerous tin-
    miners of Cornwall.



    Tin miners at Cook’s Kitchen Mine 1893 during a lunch break ‘croust’.
    Source:
    https://archaeologynationaltrustsw.wordpress.com/tag/industrial-archaeology/


    Whilst other Cornish saints have been feted as ‘the patron saint of
    Cornwall’, Saint Piran is most commonly associated with this
    accolade and the flag of Saint Piran is now also recognised as the
    Cornish flag. The flag shows a white cross on a black background
    and is said to depict the saint’s discovery of tin ‘the white metal’
    flowing from the black Cornish rocks.





    Whilst scholars argue as to the origins of Saint Piran and no
    definitive history has been agreed, many believe he was a bishop
    who travelled to Cornwall from Ireland in the early 6th century
    when he was exiled from the green isle by those who were envious
    of his ability to heal.





    Legend suggested that he was thrown to sea attached to millstone
    and somehow managed to sail safely to Cornwall, landing on a
    small beach near Newquay which was named Perran Beach in his
    honour. It was here that Saint Piran built his oratory – a small
    chapel whose remains can still be seen today, submerged in sand.



    The Oratory at the end of the 19th century. Much of the original
    structure had collapsed at this point.
    Source: http://stpiran.org/sites/st-pirans-oratory/


    Following a revival of Celtic traditions towards the end of the 19th
    century, Saint Piran’s day has remained popular throughout
    Cornwall with marches, festivals and Cornish-themed events, such
    as the annual ‘Lowender Peran’ festival in the village of
    Perranporth, with attendees resplendent in the Cornish colours of
    black, white and gold.





    Whilst traditional Saint Piran’s Day events are not well
    documented, the week running up to 5 March, known as
    ‘Perrantide’ is said to involve the spirited consumption of both food
    and alcohol. The 19th century Cornish expression ‘drunk as a
    perraner’ certainly suggests that a good time was had by all!

    Sometimes the crusty pastry is a lot nicer than what's in the pie!



    Maybe someone could cook a dumpling and Yorkshire pudding PIE!


    Then all my tasty things would be in one convenient meal!

    CORNISH CHOUGHS

    All the latest news & information on the wild choughs in Cornwall





    CORNWALL’S SPECIAL BIRD

    Choughs are definitely the most glamorous and captivating
    members of the crow family. With their glossy black plumage,
    curved crimson-red bill and red legs they are unmistakeable.

    Choughs have been recorded as part of Cornish history since at
    least the 13th century. Their old Cornish name is Palores, meaning
    'digger' and that's just what they do to find their invertebrate food.

    The choughs in Cornwall are totally wild, they have not been
    introduced. A few birds came across from Ireland in 2001 and the
    rest, as they say, is history. Cornwall's national emblem is back
    where it belongs, part of Kernow heritage once more.

    This non-dairy month is proving to be as difficult as I thought it might.........

    Yesterday evening I had a curry from my freezer, and this morning I checked the ingredients and yes, right at the top, after water, it said cream.

    :

    So I had a look at other stuff in the freezer, and apart from one tub of soup, all other stuff has milk in it, or cheese.

    I'm going to have to go to the supermarket and spend some time finding things I can have.


    Plus, I must get into the habit of checking ingredients before I eat it!

    Well, I had a nap and got up about 4-00 pm. Bobby (cat) had at some point joined me on the bed .

    I had bought five plain ring dougnuts from Sainsbury's at the weekend and my wife had eaten four of them and I had a cunning plan to have the last one with a hot drink. (Half stale must surely mean Half calories, right)?

    Then guilt kicked in - I had an apple and will have the hot drink now!
    I think coming on here served as a good reminder not to fall ... so Thank You folks ....

    Well, I do cook all my veg, but these days I wouldn't cook a curry myself. It wouldn't be as nice as my favourite one.
    Sometimes I just fancy something else, and the freezer contains my favourites! There aren't many favourites, believe me! But thy all contain dairy.
    Things like squash, feta and spinach pie, chargrilled veg and mozzarella pizza, the curry, and various Higgedy veg pies.

    No. I just forgot to check. I am getting into the routine of checking, now.

    Tonight I had more of the 'sort-of-homemade' lentil soup with chopped leaf coriander and mustard greens stirred into it, and 2 baked potatoes with absolutely nothing on them.(I was still hungry, so I didn't care! But I have tasted better than those 2 potatoes! They weren't really baking potatoes, and it showed).

    I've still got a banana to have.

    Bake sweet potatoes in the future, they are so squidgy and sweet they don't need cheese or butter, might be more palatable

    Are you going to be getting enough calcium and protein seeing as you are also vegetarian? I know next to nothing about vegetarianism other then the obvious no meat or fish. Im guessing giving up the dairy means you have gone vegan?

    It's only for a month, firstly to see if there's any improvement in certain things, then I'll reintroduce it to see what my reaction is. If it's positive, then I'll have to rethink my whole food strategy.

    In the meantime, I can eat nut roasts, and eggs, (although I'm not keen on egg, unless it's well hidden in something).

    Plus I'm not yet 100% vegetarian, but am extremely picky about the sources of the little I do eat, which can include certain types and sources of fish from time to time. However, I am rapidly losing my taste for animal flesh, as well as having concern over the ethics of it.

    We don't need to ingest large quantities of protein anyway, and it's found in lots of things besides flesh:
    Eggs, nuts, beans, peas, lentils, tofu, broccoli, spinach and loads more have smaller quantities.

    Eggs and lots of leafy veg have calcium, too.

    don’t care if you come first or last – if you take part, then you’ll be
    a BHF champion.



    The London to Brighton Bike Ride is the British Heart Foundation's
    flagship event covering 54 miles from Clapham Common to the
    Brighton Seafront.



    Make friends with fellow riders as you pass through the Sussex
    countryside, conquering Turners Hill and Ditchling Beacon. Once
    you reach the finish line, you will be greeted with a loud applause
    and a celebratory party at our very own Beach Village.



    With a handful of climbs, your pedalling will help power our life
    saving research. And every penny you raise will help the BHF cross
    our finish line faster.

    SIGN UP NOW >>>

    Color Obstacle Rush Windsor

    When

    Start: 19th May, 2018 at 10:00am

    End: 19th May, 2018 at 2:00pm

    Location: Royal Windsor Racecourse, Maidenhead Road, Windsor,
    SL4 5EZ

    The Color Obsctacle Rush is a unique event combining the fun of
    colour powdered runs, the thrill of an obstacle course and the
    atmosphere of a music festival.

    In 2018 all the obstacles will be new, something that the
    organisers believe will become your new favourites. There will be a
    bunch of new inflatables to slide, bounce, tumble and get tangled
    up in, (with colour stations inside some of them), a sponge ball
    ocean, some space hopper racing, water balloon fights and plenty
    of other surprises they aren't giving away just yet!



    Who can take part

    The Color Obstacle Rush is an event for anyone aged 12 and
    above. For full details of the age restrictions, please click here.

    You can enter on your own, or as part of a team - it's completely
    up to you.

    Costs and fundraising targets

    Places are managed directly by the event organisers and cost
    between £29.50 and £44.50 each, depending on how early you
    book. We don't receive any money from you signing up to take
    part in this event and so, although there is no minimum
    fundraising commitment, we would love for you to raise as much
    money as you can in sponsorship.



    We rely on community fundraisers like you to continue our
    valuable work with bereaved families across Berkshire, and so
    we'd like to support your fundraising as much as we can.

    You can now create a personalised online giving page right here on
    our website, which is a great platform for encouraging people to
    donate. We also have lots of free fundraising tools available for you
    to download or alternatively, you can order a Fundraising Toolkit
    below. This includes a printed copy of our fundraising toolkit,
    together with a selection of fundraising merchandise such as pens,
    balloons, badges etc. to help you raise as much money as you can
    for Daisy's Dream.

    This year we are also really pleased to be able to offer Daisy's
    Dream t-shirts for you to race in. We have four sizes available, and
    they can be purchased using the form below.

    How to book

    Place can be booked here. Please note that entries are capped for
    this event, so please enter sooner rather than later to avoid
    disappointment - particularly if you would like to take part as a
    team!
