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.
Fed up of Subway? Looking for a non-chemical-laden fresh & natural deli-style store for your lunch? Pita Pit has the answers…
The guys over at Leon in London offer some of the cleanest, natural fast food money can buy and, whilst we may not all have the pleasure of living in the Capital, they’ve thoughtfully spruced up some gorgeous recipes made just the way they do in-house so that you can enjoy a Leon experience without leaving your home!
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’).
Nobody needs to be told how to make pasta – you pop it into some salted boiling water and wait for it go soften – but sometimes pasta dishes can be a little lacking in inspiration… and that’s where this pasta dish comes in.
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.
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).
Delicate meats, fine wines and fresh natural cheese made my tummy very happy (for once!). I never thought I’d see the day – everyone MUST try this place… IBS or not.
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!
Packed full of protein, potassium and healthy fats, you’ll feel 100% satisfied after this healthy Nutella milkshake.
Best of all, you don’t have to be afraid of the word ‘Nutella’ for once as I’ve thrown in my absolute FAVOURITE chocolate spread from Torras which is sugar-free and full of crushed hazelnuts.
- 3 scoops chocolate protein powder
- 2 tbsp hazelnut spread from Torras
- 1 tbsp natural yoghurt
- 1 frozen banana
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 400ml almond or coconut milk
- Handful of crushed ice
- A few hazelnuts to decorate
- Blitz all the ingredients together in a blender. Once completely combined and thickened, pour into glasses and top with a few hazelnuts and a teaspoon of yoghurt.
