HUGE news!

Hey guys! So I've been blogging away here for a few years now and I've absolutely loved it. I started out as a Mum of two teeny tiny girls, who just wanted to cut sugar out of our lives but the journey since then has been life changing! I retrained in nutrition, I've written two children's recipe books and I've been speaking at events and holding workshops and been very super busy!

My children (the Boo and the Bear) are growing up into wonderful little girls and are not keen on being called the boo and the bear anymore- they've outgrown these names, and it feels like this site has outgrown it's name too. So these changes have left me with a few decisions to make. After chatting things through with some amazing blogger friends, I think I finally came to a decision.

This blog has always been a great love of mine. I am never happier than when creating recipes or sitting here, with the cat on my lap, typing them up for you guys to enjoy. I love writing, I love experimenting in the kitchen and I am passionate about sharing my creations. I feel that this blog has become a wonderful resource of refined sugar free and wholefood recipes and I plan to continue adding to them, so have no fear- but, things will look a little different!  The Boo The Bear and The Goji Berries will be getting a new look and a new name too, something catchy and super simple that I hope you'll love and that is a lot easier to find than it's current name (I've had complaints over the years it's too long winded to type out too!)

One of the changes, aside from the name will be a revival of some old recipes. This blog has been a plant based blog for a couple of years, but it wasn't always that way. So I've come up with a plan for the older recipes that contain dairy and eggs. I'd hate to remove them completely, as I know many people refer back to them, especially when looking for transition recipes, but I feel that revisiting some of them and giving them the option of being veganized is a really good solution that I hope will please everybody. So keep a look out for the veganized recipes coming soon!

At the end of the day, the essence of this blog will be the same. I plan to continue doing on here what this blog does best- creating recipes- and set up a new site for my business side of things.

The new site will have all my book details, speaking events, information on workshops and consultation services, and the odd recipe too. I really hope that you'll come join me on there too, I'd love to see you on both!

I really hope that you guys understand this HUGE decision (and it wasn't one that I took lightly!) and that you continue to use both sites. I'll post here on updates and hopefully make the changeover as easy as possible, but if there are technical issues, please do bear with me!

Thank you so much for being with me since the beginning. I am sad that it is an end of an era, but equally what an exciting future to look forward to!


  1. Good luck! Can't wait to see the new layout :D
