Gosh Vegan Foods Review

Gosh Vegan Foods Review: May 2017

Some gorgeous Gosh goodies landed on my doorstep just in time to enjoy during National Vegetarian Week. Gosh is all about goodness, they are dairy free, gluten free, soya free, nut free and are suitable for vegans too. Impressively, they are naturally free from the UK’s 14 top listed allergens; cereals containing gluten, eggs, milk, soya, nuts, peanuts, celery, mustard, sesame seeds, lupin, sulphur dioxide, crustaceans, fish & molluscs.

Excited to get stuck in, I hit the kitchen to create some yummy meal plans for the week. The super sensational Sweetcorn & Quinoa Bites jazzed up with a hint of Harissa & Paprika went perfectly with a simple gem lettuce, tomato and onion salad with a light dressing making a fab lunch. The lip-smackingly tasty Chickpea, Courgette & Moroccan spiced bakes topped off with a helping of harissa peppers or the Beetroot, Kale & Quinoa burgers with a hint of mint, stuffed into a burger bun with a handful of polenta chips provided a delicious dinner time chow down.

Relaxed Sunday Sessions to me means lots of scrummy food. The Mushroom, Puy Lentil & Butter Bean burgers screamed out breakfast! Served with spiced beans, fresh roasted vine tomatoes, avocado and toasted bread – boom a brilliant breakfast to start the day. Sunday would not be complete without a classic Sunday dinner, but with a twist…no meat involved! The mouth-watering mixed seed, quinoa, carrot & coriander bakes with a minted pea centre created a centrepiece for a fabulous vegetarian Sunday ‘roast’ dinner, served up with fresh veggies, roast potatoes, a homemade Yorkshire pudding and vegetarian gravy – yummilicious!

Don’t wait to hear the words…’oh GOSH they are all gone’ get yourself down to the supermarket and pick yourself up some Gosh Goodness today.

Thank you to the Gosh team, all the brilliant bloggers and fab followers too 😊

Mr Lee’s Vegetarian Noodles Review for #NationalVegetarianWeek

Mr Lee’s Vegetarian Noodles Review: May 2017

Mr Lee not just a fictitious character, but a real person, who is both the creator and owner of the Mr Lee’s Noodles brand. My mid-week excitement peaked, as I was sent more of Mr Lee’s lovely Noodles just in time for National Vegetarian Week. Mr Lee’s Noodles come in 6 flavours, 2 which are all go, go, go, as they give the green light for veggies.

The two vegetarian flavours are the delicious Dragon fire mushroom and the sensational scrummy shaolin monk vegetable. Both tasted yummy and are super low in calories too. The noodles are gluten free, are made of nothing artificial. Ingredients are freeze dried and not dehydrated which locks in the nutrients, vitamins and flavour. Simple to make, just fill with boiling water, give them a good stir, rest for three minutes and they are good to go – Easy, convenient, but importantly healthy too.

Want noodles without the nasties? Well Mr Lee has lovingly created the answer for you with his fabulous noodles. Come on it is National Vegetarian Week so a perfect time to give the delicious Dragon fire mushroom and the sensational shaolin monk vegetable a go. You would be a noodle not too!

Thank you to Mr Lee’s team, all my fab followers and fellow bloggers for reading 😊

EAT. Manchester Arndale Review

EAT. Manchester Arndale Review: May 2017

With 20 years’ experience and over 100 shops based in the United Kingdom EAT. know a thing or two about fab fresh food. Seasonal changes mean that new fresh innovative menus are launched frequently. Food waste is also managed at EAT. where the brand donates as many of their leftover sandwiches and salads as possible to local charities that work with the homeless. They also work closely with the homeless charity Crisis, so this is a winner for me!
