Low Carb Low Sugar Oatmeal

His LordshipRecipes0 Comments

One of the downsides of a plant-based diet is that it is high in carbs and also high in sugar. I recently bought a blood sugar monitor and was quite shocked at how much my blood sugar spiked after enjoying my morning porridge. I love my porridge. Favourite meal of the day. But shortly after eating it, I often crashed … Read More

No Such Thing As Luck

I’m not a big believer in luck, it is the destroyer of ambition. I know this because it has lurked in my background, encouraging me to be a bit daft-slash-lazy at times in the hope that the one-in-a-million may happen without me having to lift a finger to encourage it. Of course, this never happens. Once you unburden yourself of … Read More

Don't Dream It. BE It.

I was never a natural singer. As a kid, I would sing along to my favourite pop songs but no-one ever stopped me in my tracks to comment on how good my voice was. I could sing in tune, but I had no style, no control, no technique. When I decided that I wanted to be a singer, aged about … Read More

Lacking Inspiration

As someone who might loosely be described as an “artist”, I have often found myself going through a creative vaccuum. I am in one right now, which is why I’ve not blogged in ages. There are often many causes surrounding such a funk and, on this occasion, it is that my mind is occupied elsewhere. Sometimes I find things so … Read More

To The Rescue!

We got three new additions to the menagerie today: Po, Phasma and Penguin. They are ex-battery chickens who had reached the end of their useful life so were due to become cat or dog food. Poor little buggers only stopped laying for a brief period as the moult but, any pause in egg production and they’re outta there! What a … Read More

Challenge Your Long-held Beliefs

Something we are seeing a lot of lately is the phenomenon of Cognitive Dissonance. Brexit. Trump. Creationism. Religion. Terrorism. People are not only refusing to accept new evidence or listen to different points of view, they double-down on their own position, regardless of what they are presented with. Take Trump, for example. Most rational people thought it was a bad … Read More

Why Goal Setting Is Important

It’s January 1st 2018, traditionally a time to reflect on the previous year and look back at achievements made. It is also a time to decide what goals you should set yourself for the forthcoming year. But why is this important? If you were on a boat, setting sail on the high seas, you would want to know where you … Read More

What’s Your Excuse?

Like millions of people around the world, I did some gym work today. Leg extensions and squats, to be precise. My gym is a bit different to most, however, as it is outside. Now, if you live in California or Barbados or some other gloriously warm, hot and dry climate, this would not be any kind of deal. In fact, … Read More

List Of The Week-ish #12

Decided that I really should change the title of these LOTW. My good intentions go right out of the window as time becomes more and more limited and, when I have the time to blog, I want to write about other stuff.

Accepting Your Limitations

When I was in my early twenties I decided the following: 1) That I was going to win a Grammy 2) I was going to win an Oscar 3) I was going to be Mr Olympia Not only had I decided on those three things, I determined that they would be within the SAME YEAR! Nothing like setting your goals … Read More
