Pancake Day 🙂

pancake-day-imageShrove Tuesday is here which marks a traditional day of feasting before the start of lent on Ash Wednesday. However, I must confess now that I do not think I will manage 40 days of fasting leading up to Easter.

Nutri-Bitz Review

Nutri-Bitz Review: February 2017

Another collaboration with the Nutri-Bombz brand – Boom! A box of the knock out Nutri-Bitz landed through my lucky letterbox. Nutri-Bitz are raw low fat snacks, packed with protein and are nut free – hands up in the air for a lip-smacking sweet fix without the nasties. My non-naughty Nutri-Bitz box contained a tray of brilliant Butterscotch balls, lush Choccy Orange, mouth-watering Vanilla Fudge and the tasty Toffee Apple. These balls may be small, but they are mighty and pack a powerful palatal punch.

Creative Nature Organic Chia & Cacao Chocolate Chip Brownie Mix Review

Creative Nature Organic Chocolate Brownie Mix Review: February 2017

Natural and Organic Awards Europe 2016 Finalist for best new special diet product and shortlisted in 2016 for the Best of Organic Markets Awards, this brilliant brownie bake mix stands out from the crowd. 100% natural, organic, vegan and raw ingredients such as Organic Cacao powder, Chia seeds and Dairy Free Chocolate Chips make up this heavenly mix. CEO/Owner Julianne Ponan herself has a nut allergy so worked endless evenings to create a nut free formula that is also gluten free, soya free, dairy and wheat free – what is not to like!

Clearspring Review 2: Desk Nibbles Minus the Naughtiness

Clearspring Review 2 Desk Nibbles Minus the Naughtiness: February 2017

Some of you may remember last year, that I received a lovely Christmas package from the team over at Clearspring HQ? The parcel was packed with lots of yummy healthy nutritious organic goodies to try out. After all of Decembers indulgence, January 2017 was time for a “Clearspring”. A notoriously unhealthy desk snacker, daily I was working my way through packs of fat fuelled crisps, sugar powered soups and sweets, that could total up to a whopping 800 calories! Simply nibbling on a pen lid was certainly not a viable answer to aid my calorific desk fix.

Classic Wine Tasting Review – Veeno Manchester

Classic Wine Tasting Review – Veeno Manchester: February 2017

“Two Italians Abroad” aka Nino and Andrea came to the UK to work and study. Little did they know that this decision would take them on a journey of a lifetime. A game of football and a few Vino’s after the match united them and their passion for authentic high quality food and drink. A few glasses of Vino later, some careful planning along with a spritz of entrepreneurial spirit, saw the very first Veeno open in Manchester city centre in 2013!

Popchips Review

Popchips a California creation began in 2007 and is one of the fastest growing snack brands in America. Los Angeles in California is the Headquarters for the fabulous Popchips and now with an office right here in the UK they are popping up all over the world. Keith Belling a serial entrepreneur along with Pat Turpin a fellow foodie and business start-up guru are both the founders and chairmen behind these cool crazy crisps…well chips! Both have a wealth of experience in business – in fact over 40 years between them! This pair of super snackers are clearly passionate about Popchips and launching a healthier snack off worldwide. Exciting stuff!  Even more exciting was the big bold red boxed delivery, that I received.  My turn to go on a ridge ride and get my snack on!

Bundobust Manchester Review

Bundobust Manchester Review: February 2017

From Mumbai to Manchester the Bundobust Boys are in town and already are a sensational Bollywood Hit. Founders Mark Husak who’s specialism lies in the craft beer market and Mayur Patel with his extensive foodie knowledge using recipes passed down from his parents and grandparents, have brought a much needed element of spice into the Manchester Piccadilly area. A game of two half’s Bundobust offers a specialist selection of craft beers and simple yet innovative Indian street food…what’s not to like right?! The Bundobust Entrance walls are adorned with recycled doors luckily, we made the right choice and went straight on inside. Relaxed laid back setting, décor simple and inviting with authentic Indian film posters, a mix of cosy booth style seating and communal benches. Welcomed warmly by staff we got cosy and chilled out in the booth while we looked over the mouth-watering menu.
