I've been away for a couple of weeks. But don't think that I haven't been thinking of you all, because I have. Awww.....

I just needed a little bit of time to get myself back on track after a super busy few weeks, and this also coincided with a bit of rare (rain-free) sunshine here in the UK so I spent a few days soaking up the rays in the garden with a chilled coconut milk and blueberry smoothie. 

I'd not been sleeping too well, my psoriasis flared up (as it always does when I lack regular sleep) and a migraine threatened (my first sign is occasional double vision) and that's triggered by, yep, you've guessed it - lack of sleep and eating regular meals. Guilty of both. So you understand that I needed a bit of time out. But I'm back now. 

So what had I been up to, to lead to this busy week? Well, here goes... 

Primal Eye Magazine
I'm proud to be one of the contributing writers for the new Paleo and Primal based online magazine, Primal Eye. I'm loving it - I write recipes and food articles - I've done an awesome beef and chimichurri burger recently and it's one of my favourites. Garlic, parsley, beef, mushrooms... *swoons* I'll be sharing other articles from the magazine on Facebook so keep an eye out for those... 

Tom, George and the Time Machine
I've written a children's book. And I enjoyed every second of it. It's a story - not (totally) paleo related, although they do go back in time to the paleo era. It's called Tom, George and the Time Machine and it's published on Amazon Kindle and I'm looking into getting it published in print so you have actually hold a copy in your hands, but I'll keep you posted on that. 

Paleo Breakfast Mushroom Burger
I was contacted by the Just Add Mushrooms campaign to develop a mushroom recipe - and I made you all a paleo breakfast burger. Warning. There's egg porn. (I know you love that, really.)

New ebooks
Each time I finish an ebook I always think that will be it and I won't think of anything else to do an ebook on. But then, just when I start to relax, a new idea pops into my head and I'm so excited I can't stop thinking about it. I'm playing with three (yes, three!) different ideas at the moment and doing some planning around those, but they will be AIP and paleo based, and they will contain awesome new recipes. In the meantime, check out the ebooks I've published so far here. I also have quite a few reviews to write up for you, including a psoriasis shampoo and conditioner - I hope you'll find it useful. 

New recipes
I've also been trying out some new recipes from other bloggers - I've loved the Tangy BBQ ribs from the book Nourish, Autoimmune Paleo's Pork Pesto Skillet and the Beef and Orange Stew from Healing Family Eats. I'm always posting what I'm cooking and what I'm doing on Instagram, so come and join me there, if you like. And of course I still have the Facebook page which is updated daily. 

So I'm back, having learned a bit more about my health and had time to reflect on what's been going on and also now very excited about all the new things I have coming up for you all soon. 

Take care, and speak soon! 

Jo
