World Book Day 7th March, The Ultimate Quark Guide & Cook Book.

                      

                                 By The Queen of Quark 



    
     For world book day on March the 7th this week and I have been given this book to review by Kerstin and Linda the Human alter ego behind The queen of quark, It's a Hard back copy with 191 pages, of tips and delicious recipes of Quark, To be honest I had never really heard of Quark that much before, I never thought that Quark could be so versatile, I just thought it was like a cottage cheese type product but I realise that it is extreme low in fat and very good for you, you can make the most scrummy cheese cakes and even use it in savoury recipes, and add to  your morning smoothie. 
       
         Kerstain and Linda have cleverly compiled a marvellous collection of tips and recipes  for us mere mortals to try out.  The book starts with a wonderful explanation on the origins and history of Quark,  it also gives you a very helpful list of super-foods  from A to Z, some of which I never released made the list, that taught me.  There is also a fantastic chapter on the health benefits of Quark, I never realised  how good  it is for you,  



    The recipes  and method in the book are easy to understand and very clear, so you instantly don't feel confused and think I can't try them out. The photography jumps out of the page and made me feel very hungry indeed,  the colours used made the whole look of the book fresh and healthy,   Kerstin and Linda have made this Ultimate guide to Quark reader friendly and written with the person in mind. A must for your book shelf  I am proud to have it on mine.

How To Survive Your Younger Years.

What age would you go back to?   Sixteen, Eighteen, your early twenty's?  I personally think that there is a huge difference between 16 and 24 not just in numbers but in life.  I am writing this post because I have seen a lot of younger people struggling and it has made me very sad and I some what know what they are going through,  of course everybody's situation is different  we all have different lives and family situations and a different set of problems.
 I am no expert on mental health I would never dare, I am only writing from my own point of view and my own struggles  when I was younger.  When I have talked to several younger people, lately my heart breaks for them I remember the self esteem issues that I had as a teenager, the fear I felt when sitting my GCSE exams, and leaving school was terrifying I didn't want to grow up it was scary, I wanted to hang out with my friends get drunk and snog boys, I knew that I couldn't do that I had to study I had to get a j…

The Secret Blogger

Put your hands up who's a secret blogger,  me me me.  In a room full of people I would be the first to stand up, in a queue I would be well and truly at the front.  I am the Ultimate secret blogger I confess, anyone else come on own up.
    On a serious note when, I started my blogging journey I really wanted something to do on a creative level if  20 or so people read my posts I would have been really happy, I never realised  that I would get this far, I have learnt so much in such a short space of time. I started my blog on July 17th 2018, only one person knew about it, my Brother I needed him for the technical bit, I will give him a shout out because he does read the blog don't you know, it took me about three weeks to tell my Sister, and one of my Nieces and my older Brother but no one else knows,   I feel quite like it's some kind of big hush hush secret, don't get me wrong I am proud of my little corner of the internet, I am just not ready to share it with …

I have started a new fitness routine, I have always loved keeping fit since my late twenty's till today, it's funny that when I was at school I hated sports or games as we call it here in the UK, I was always the last or second to last in a race and was never picked for any team I did however excel at Volley Ball (no idea why) and I was good at dance, but of course my school abandoned the volley ball team. at age thirteen, but I did do dance lessons from the age of seven till sixteen, I had  dreams of being a dancer on Top of the Pops, (yeah right).
 From about the age of 27 I started to workout to keep fit DVD's and they worked they really did, and I actually enjoyed it, I became pretty fit and had a nice little figure too,  but alas time has gone on and the years have gone by and by the time I was 35 I started to realize I couldn't do the DVD's that I was doing a few years back and was struggling to do any more that 20 mins each time, and eventually  I started …
