My Super Seedy [Nut Free] Protein Bread

My Super Seedy [Nut Free] Protein Bread

This is probably the easiest bread to make – it’s pretty much scoop, stir, pour, bake and you’re done! Hey presto…or should that be Hey Protein Bread [oh dear].

Anyway, this recipe is super simple and great if you’re after a more healthy bread, packed full of protein. It’s delicious with both sweet and savoury condiments [hello smashed avo and chilli flakes]! The recipe is nut free for those of you with allergies, and is also free from dairy. Happy tummies all round.

Without further ado, here’s the recipe:

Doha this week 21-27/01/2018

Doha this week 21-27/01/2018

This was an unusual week for us, in that we had a fair bit of free time in Doha. Generally, [like many other expats in Qatar], if we are around for four or more days we try and get out of town and jump on a plane somewhere. For various reasons we ended up staying in Qatar this week, and here’s what we got up to [well, other than watching Netflix of course]:

Jamie’s Italian: 

A big Jamie fan, I was super excited for the restaurant to open this month. I had actually never been to one of Jamie’s Italian restaurants, but throughly enjoyed the experience. The restaurant has opened in Doha Festival City, so is a little out of town, but to be honest this is probably my favourite mall in Doha anyway.  Continue reading “Doha this week 21-27/01/2018”

One day in Paris

One day in Paris

I’ve recently returned from a one week trip to Brittany France, where I joined my parents on their longer three week holiday.  My mother and I decided to head into Paris for a day, so caught the train from “Brest” early one morning. We were lucky with the weather as despite the constant wind and rain since touching down in France a few days earlier, our Parisian excursion wasn’t a washout, and infant we were graced with blue skies and sunshine!

We started out the day with a rough itinerary, helpful, as we had a fairly ambitious list of things to see. We used the Metro to get around town – once we had mastered the Metro it was a great way of getting around quickly and covering ground. Of course we did a lot of walking too (over 20,000 steps in fact), and as such I always recommend wearing comfy shoes when visiting Paris. Continue reading “One day in Paris”

Farmers Market Friday

Farmers Market Friday

Friday rolled around, and having spent much of the last two days in bed with a cold, I was craving some fresh air and good old Vit D. OH was off work so we headed out to Education City to visit Torba Market. Having visited the market before, towards the end of 2017, we were excited to see there were some new stalls to explore!

The market is held at the “Ceremonial Court” within Education City. It’s fairly easy to find – once you enter Education City through Gate 2, there are signs directing you towards the market. The market takes place on Thursdays and Fridays, so it’s a perfect weekend outing during the winter for those wanting to escape the Malls, and get outside for a bit.
