Comfort Eating

Evening, Just a short blog post today, talking about one of my favoruite comfort dishes, thats super easy to make.

Anyone reading this with a chronic illness, will get that it can be so hard to cook a proper meal. The majority of my meals take under 2 minutes to make or it’s something I can shove in the oven and wait for it to be ready. I’m like a wannabe chef, I love food, I love to eat even more – but drop me out when it comes to slaving over a hot stove. Not by choice mind, once in a blue moon i’ll cook something from scratch that requires me to stand (or sit) at the hob. Today was not one of those days, but I fancied something homely.

This is where one of my favourites my mum used to make when I lived at home, Cheesey Tuna Pasta bake, the ultimate comfort food, in my opinion. It helps that it’s probably one of the easiest things to make. While the Pasta was simmering I did my washing up – love a good multitask. Then all i did was put in chopped toms, tuna into a dish and topped with cheese – popped into oven for 45 mins..

After it had been in the oven for 10 minutes, I remembered I wanted to add peppers and some chilli powder so quickly did that before adding more cheese and putting back in oven.

Today has been full of ‘oops i forgot’ becuase I then left it in the oven for 15 minutes too long – owell it was still perfect with a nice layer of cripsy cheese on top.

I always cook too much on purpose so i can eat what i’ve cooked up for the next few days, It’s hard to get the proper nutrients and enough ‘proper food’ when trying to manage a chronic illness, so it works for me to cook up a big batch.

For comparison sakes, that was my dinner and then I had a bowl of cereal for tea.





I’ve not posted in a while, so apologies! I’ve been really struggling with my M.E and the side effects, mainly insomnia ATM, I’m like a walking zombie. 

Doctor has given me a new tablet to try which is a pain killer and makes you drowsy so hopefully that does the trick and I’m back to ‘normal’ soon.

Not much has been happening as I’ve been focused on ‘getting better’ and have been resting almost 24/7.

I’ve done a few shoots in the studio with Sean Taylor photography here’s the results – he makes me look well lol!

 I have also found a new obsession for wax melts – I’m serious guys, this stuff is the bomb. Yeah alright I’m a 90s kid I can still say that! 

I’ll attach some pics but because I joined as a Brand Ambassador I got over 100 melts – which will be why I’m hooked!! Oops, owell!! The company is called Darceys and they handmake the lot. It’s all made with soy wax which means no paraffin or nasty chemicals. It’s also cruelty free if you’re vegan. 

Plus the packaging is super cute! Always a bonus.
