Festive food and drink treats

December 4, 2018 admin 0

There is something about Christmas that see’s most people indulging in gorgeous food and drink that they other wise might not, for me the big one is flavoured cheeses. Then there is the array of food that only appear at Christmas that I can’t seem to get enough of, yet wouldn’t ever think to eat in any month other than December, like mince pies and Christmas pudding. Christmas really is a time to indulge in […]

Afternoon tea at Inglewood Manor

November 30, 2018 admin 0

This week I had the absolute pleasure of being invited to Inglewood Manor for one the most quintessential of English customs, afternoon tea, and I was delighted to be able to attend. I have wanted to visit Inglewood Manor for a long time but until now had never had the chance, so as you can imagine I was excited to get the opportunity to go and have a look around for myself. Inglewood Manor is perfectly […]

Conscious chocolate review

May 13, 2018 admin 0

Since attending the OM yoga show in Manchester last month and having a look at the Vegan life live event whilst there I have started to become a bit more interested in the vegan lifestyle and am amazed at the amount of products that are vegan friendly. One of my best friends is vegan and when she made the change I remember thinking that there was no way  I could give up chocolate or cheese […]

Secret Sausages – The verdict is in!

October 10, 2015 admin 0

I have two boys aged 5 and 3, both gorgeous, both monkeys. My youngest has a brilliant appetite and will eat almost everything, my eldest is fussy and reluctant to try new foods making meal times a challenge on occasion. Despite his fussy tendencies I still ensure that he eats plenty of fruit and vegetables, even if it is always the same ones, they still count. On more than one occasion I have slipped some […]

Body Chef day 3 and 4 – the diet continues

May 7, 2015 admin 0

Day 3 Ok so I’m five days into the bodychef plan and I haven’t starved to death yet. I’m also still following the diet which has got to be a record for me, normally by day five, scrap that day 2 I have succumbed to the temptation of the biscuit tin, or at this time of year the unfinished selection boxes hidden at the back of the cupboard. Tonight I even went out to a […]

Boomf – photos on marshmallows!

May 6, 2015 admin 6

This has got to be the most bizarre confectionary I have ever come across. Marshmallows with photographs on – completely bonkers. Yet it totally works. Why? Because we live in a society that is obsessed with personalisation, selfies and food. When I first discovered Boomf I was instantly transported to Willy Wonkers factory, because, let’s face it, who else could dream this up? Well that dreamer was James Middleton, who along with business partner Andy […]

Body chef January Journey

May 4, 2015 admin 6

The Christmas bulge has finally gotten the better of me. My work pants are starting to feel tight and trying to get into my skinny jeans involves a somewhat embarrassing impression of a caterpillar trying to dance. Action is required, whoever told me the Christmas pud calories didn’t count because it was Christmas was seriously delusional. So, what to do? I shopped around and found so many options; calorie control, shakes, juices, sugar free, fat […]
