DARLING CORN – BBQ TOASTED CORN KERNELS REVIEW

DARLING CORN – BBQ TOASTED CORN KERNELS REVIEW

Always reaching for that 3 o’clock snack?, instead of grabbing a bag of crisps I will always opt for a bag of darling corn instead. Crisps get boring after a while not to mention they are pretty unhealthy and high in saturated fats. However sometimes if your on that health regime you need something starchy to keep you going. Darling corn is that mid afternoon bit of goodness that just takes the edge off till dinnertime.They are also high in fibre so beneficial for those on a weightloss plan. I…

CHICKEN SAUSAGE CASSEROLE RECIPE

CHICKEN SAUSAGE CASSEROLE RECIPE

I have never been a massive fan of normal sausages and when me and my partner were in Spain, I found chicken sausages and instantly fell in love with them. On returning to the UK I could not find a decent chicken sausage anywhere only frankfurters, that was until I accidentally found the HECK chicken sausage. I picked out the Italia sausages which sounded super yummy infused with basil, tomatoes & mozzarella. I thought they were more worthy of a proper meal rather than a fry up, with them being low in fat we opted…

POW Energy Water REVIEW

POW Energy Water REVIEW

In need of a light, low calorie refreshing drink to give you that extra boost well POW Energy water is the one. I have often been dubbed a water snob for the fact that I come from an area that produces some of the nicest freshest water yet still cant drink it out of the tap. Mainly because I cant stand the taste, but also I find water a boring drink and like to add a little pazzaz. I love a bit of sparkle in my drink but I find…

GROUNDED BODY SCRUB – COCONUT BODY SCRUB REVIEW

GROUNDED BODY SCRUB – COCONUT BODY SCRUB REVIEW

Now many of you may have heard of Grounded body scrub since they shot to fame after their appearance on Dragon’s Den, and there is no wonder why, as their pitch wowed the judges and ever since their product has been flying off the shelves from major retailer Boots. It may come as a surprise but I was not new to the good old coffee scrub, it was circulating in London a few years before, but I was not a regular user and it was not that easy to get…

EXOTIC SMOOTHIE BOWL RECIPE

EXOTIC SMOOTHIE BOWL RECIPE

This exotic smoothie bowl is one of my favourites for morning time. I am not one to wake up and head straight to the kitchen, in fact most morning I feel groggy and food is the last thing on my mind. I need at least an hour or so for my body to wake up before I actually start to feel hungry. Sometimes though we dont have an hour so this is a great thing to make that you can blast up and sup on your way to work. If…

LA COMPTOIR LIBANAIS – MANCHESTER – SPINNINGFIELDS

La Comptoir Libanais is in the newly revamped Spinningfields. There lies a vibrant alley of deliciousness and culture, with a string of yummy restaurants ready to wet your appetite. Choosing some where to eat when we are out is somehwhat quiet tricky, with my partner liking both large portions and spice, and me, well i am weak when it comes to hot food. Indians and buffets tend to get quiet dull after a while and the quality of food is somewhat desirable, so when we headed to Manchester for the day…
