Low fat and sugar muffin recipe

This recipe couldn’t be easier. Grated veg adds moisture and a little sweetness.

While we wouldn’t normally advocate cake for breakfast, in comparison to calorific pastries, these muffins are practically saintly. The low sugar content minimises the risk to you and your children’s teeth, starting the day as you mean to go on.

Low Fat And Sugar Muffin Recipe
Easily prepped and baked the day before, this is a delicious start to the day!

Best served with a side of relaxation, this recipe makes 12 muffins.


40g grated courgette

40g grated carrot

70mls milk

30ml sunflower oil

2 free-range eggs, beaten together

150g plain flour

30g soft brown sugar

2 tsp baking powder

1 tablespoon cinnamon


•Pre-heat your oven to 200c, and fill your muffin tray with 12 cases
•Stir the beaten eggs with the grated courgette and carrot, and add milk and sunflower oil.
•In a separate bowl mix together the dry ingredients (flour, sugar and baking powder)
•Combine both mixtures together and mix well until you have a batter
•Divide the mixture between the 12 cases, and bake in the oven for 15 – 20 minutes or until baked (Test with a skewer – it should come out clean when they are ready!)

Reasons To Get Your Car ServicedGetting your car serviced so that you always have a smooth and safe ride if vital and all too easy to overlook in the business of life. So today I am sharing some good reasons to get your car serviced.

Learning from experience

My Dad always emphasized the importance of car servicing and I noticed that he usually passed his MOT easily and never ran up huge car repair bills unlike boyfriends who neglected to get their cars serviced.

Cars are complicated

A car is a complicated machine with many different compoments  such as the brakes, battery and exhaust. We look after our bodies so they perform better and cars also need us to look after them well for greater performance.

Modern cars

Modern cars are often fitted with a computer chip (the ECU ) which manages various aspects of the vehicle. It also collects information on events that occur as the car is driven. Garages have diagnostic equipment which can read the logs of issues that the ECU has recorded and this may prompt actions which may prevent failure at a later date.

So what do you do when the dreaded “Service Required” message appears? You can check your mileage against the manufacturer’s recommended service intervals

Where to get your car serviced

Local garages often offer a better level of customer service and you can build up a great relationship with  them so they know you as an individual and get to know your car too.

For example you could visit Ossett Tyre House  to avail of their car exhaust repair service in West Yorkshire.

Do I need to take my car to the dealer?

If your car is under warranty it is usually conditional on following the manufacturer’s service schedule but that doesn’t mean you must go to the main dealer. There are many specialists in various makes who will follow the specifications set by the manufacturer and stamp your service book. A local garage may also do the same if they have the diagnostic equipment. It is well worth building a relationship with your local garage so they know you, your car and you know what to expect from them





Do you struggle to find stylish clothing for boys?

It always seems that fashionable girls’ clothing is so much easier to find. I am lucky that my oldest was not fussed about what he wore for many years and at the grand old age of 16 has just started to show an interest.

My boys are chalk and cheese in so many ways and my 11 year old is very image conscious.

Stylish Clothing For Boys

It is so lovely when you just know what brand will excite him. He absolutely loves anything from Saltrock. In fact it is really tough to get him to wear anything else!

He particularly loves his fur-lined hoodie particularly when we go walking. He says it is warm and gives good coverage of his body.

I decided to check out if there was anything for me on the Saltrock website. I don’t know about you but I do love something that covers my bum generally but particularly on chillier days. Grey really suits me so I now use my new top to pop out to the shops and when our working up those steps in a bid to increase fitness levels.

So now we are both  all set to check out  wonderful walks just down the road in the South West.



My Random Musings

Happy Easter!

At Easter we think of all things chocolate and I was keen to find a healthy chocolate chip brownies recipe.
Healthy Chocolate Chip Brownies

Healthy chocolate chip brownies recipe

I can highly recommend this one from  popular blogger Madeline Shaw and Linwoods , the leading producer of natural and organic milled superfoods, seeds and nuts.

Chocolate Chip and Flaxseed Blondie Brownies

 2 medium organic eggs

1 tsp of vanilla extract

1 tsp of cinnamon

175g of almond butter

120g coconut sugar

1 tsp baking soda

100g of good quality dark chocolate, ( brand -om bar)

2 tbsp of Linwoods milled flax seeds 


Preheat oven 160°C and line a 20cm baking tray with baking paper.


Mix the eggs, vanilla, cinnamon, almond butter, coconut sugar, baking soda and a pinch of salt until smooth.


Break 50g of the chocolate into small pieces. Mix the chocolate and flax seeds in with the mixture.


Pour the mixture into the prepared tin and bake for 25 minutes, then leave to cool.


Melt the remaining chocolate and drizzle over the cooled brownies.


Cut into 16 pieces and enjoy.


These will keep for 3 days in an airtight container (but they will probably last 1 minute!)

Skydiving for charity is something many of us have thought about but few of us have the actual courage to do. I am delighted to share Cheryl’s story although so sorry to see the reasons that inspired this brave act.

Skydiving For Charity

1. Who are you, how old are you and where do you live?

Cheryl Miller, Cover Teacher at The Willink School in Burghfield Common, I’m 31 and live in Burghfield Common, Reading with my husband and my 2 lovely dogs.

2. What motivated you to take part in the Skydive for Young Epilepsy?

I’ve always said I would like to do a Skydive and saw on facebook a group that were doing it for young epilepsy on March 26th Mothers day. Kirsty was diagnosed at 12 years old and Its Kirsty’s birthday on March 31st so thought it was quite fitting to do this in her memory, then realised it fell on mothers day so for me has double meaning really and doing it for my beautiful niece’s Soraya and Regan Walker and their darling mother my amazing sister Kirsty Marie Walker.

3. How did your sister’s epilepsy affect you as a family and in particular you as a sister?

My mother is also Epileptic so it’s something that we have grown up with from a very young age. I think when she got diagnosed with SUDEP it hit me a bit more that her Epilepsy was more severe than mums but you just don’t expect anything like that to happen.

3. How did you feel when you lost your sister and the twins?

Hysterical when I received the first call from my father, numb and upset with the call from my sister to say all 3 had gone, crushed and heartbroken when I saw them at the hospital, angry that there was nothing I could do to bring them back, guilty for not being there with her (we were always together). A lot of mixed emotions to be honest which come like waves over you it’s hard to explain but all I can say is it doesn’t get easier at all you just manage to control your emotions better, apart from on the really bad days where you just get emotional over something really small that reminds you of her.

4. What have you done to raise money since your sister passed away and who for?

I did a 5K colour obstacle run last year with friends, we held a big raffle at our local rugby club, Friends have done marathons, Quiz’s etc which has raised about £22,000 so far and we are still raising.

5. How have you trained for the Skydive?

There is no training I can do until the morning of the Skydive.

6. How are you feeling as the event gets closer?

Getting quite nervous now with just over a week to go but excited at the same time.

7. What would you say to encourage people to donate? Please let me have a link to your fundraising page.

Peoples lives can be changed with this money, you never think Epilepsy will affect you but it can affect anyone and it’s like a time bomb.

8. What would your sister say if she knew you were doing the skydive?

I know she would say I’m absolutely mad but I know she would be so proud. She was always so supportive.

9. Is there anything else you would like to share?

There was only 14 moths between me and Kirsty we were so close not just in age. We told each other everything she was my confident and I was hers. I just miss her and would like to raise as much awareness as possible any money raised along the way is a bonus.

10. Who has helped you both whilst your sister struggled with epilepsy and the wider family after her loss? – friends, family, neigbours, organisations???

We are a very close family and speak to each other all the time, our friends have been fantastic I couldn’t ask for better friends supporting me through the hardest thing I hope I ever have to go through. Our neighbours are great and actually in the process of organising another Raffle in the girls memory. The charity’s have been great too, very supportive and so very grateful for any donations received. We have a big support network and very grateful to all of them.
