Super high on carbs today, dunno what the heck happened! Not so worried since I was exercising though.


  1. Did you make your own bean burgers? I've not had any in so long, but I think I may have some for dinner tomorrow.

  2. Bean burgers sound yummy! Well done on the running mate xx

  3. Yeah I made my own - never had one before but liked the idea....and they were scrummy :D
