All Star Lanes Manchester review: All Star eats

As a child, I think bowling places were pretty much the worst place for food. On par with kids swimming pool centres, the food was also wayyy too greasy, everything fried and beige, and almost definitely out a packet. So as it goes, in adult age I actively avoided going to bowling places to even have a snack, let alone a full sit-down meal.

Can You Really “Eat Fresh” When You’re Eating Out?

As much as Subway would have you believe that they provide fresh food in every single one of their stores, the chances of this being true is extraordinarily slim – and we have the evidence to prove it.

Although everything looks plentifully bright and colourful and all smells fresh in-store, these are simply clever sales strategies to lure you into the store (the smell) and influence your buying behaviour (with the bright colours signifying ‘health’).

Naturally Sassy snack bars review

It’s Top-Up Tuesday which means I have to get my greedy fix of snacks suitably organised around my desk at work. (Top-Up Tuesday is a general thing of mine as I normally stuff my face on Sundays, end up feeling guilt on Mondays and eating very little, and then start again on Tuesdays – not good, I know, but it always seems to happen).

So what kind of snacks am I feasting on this post-lunch hour? Today it’s Naturally Sassy Food’s Red Velvet bar.

The Importance of Knowing Your Omega Consumption

Are you getting the right omegas in your diet?

I recently submitted a post about how all Omega are not the same, and off the back of this I was intrigued to know more. As everybody assumes, all Omegas are healthy… which isn’t the case at all. In fact, it’s almost a balancing act with your Omegas, primarily between Omega 3s (the Omegas you get in oily fish, etc.) and Omega 6s (poultry, eggs and wheat, for instance).

Healthy recipes: Blueberry and Lemon muffins

Try this healthier muffin recipe which uses 30% less milk, 10% less oil, 50% less flour, 50% less salt and 70% less sugar than traditional methods.

You’ll find that these taste not at all synthetic like shop-bought varieties and have a much subtler sweet taste due to the heart healthy olive oil used in place of vegetable oil.

Eat these for breakfast or a hearty snack, with less guilt and more flavour than a regular muffin!
