Snack Attack: Wellaby’s review

The snack market is huge and every expanding, but often snacks can be laded in calories, saturated fat and less than nutritious. I am always on the look out for new, nutritious snacks that I can eat and recommend to others.  Wellaby’s Simple Bakes are gluten, dairy and nut free. This of course does not […]

Umami, Uvuvu, a review.

Umami is firstly such a fabulous word, it reminds me of that televison programme Shooting Stars – anyone know what I mean? The phrase I’m thinking of was “Uvavu” I digress. Umami is a Japanese word for “savoury taste” and together with saltiness, bitterness, sweetness and sourness it is one of the 5 basic tastes. Think […]

Review: Goldhill Organics Vegetable Box

Fruit and vegetables is something I am passionate about and something we eat a lot of in our house. In fact I must admit I start to panic when I can see the bottom of the fruit bowl and when the veggie supply is low but there was no plan to go shopping that day […]

Adagio Tea Review

My love of tea is well known, especially loose leaf tea. For me loose leaf tea provides a far superior  flavour and it the whole brewing process is something that I love. If you haven’t tried loose leaf tea then you really must. For me it is like comparing instant to fresh coffee. Having been […]

Rawnola Review

 I love granola. There is something that just hits the spot when you combine the crunch with  some yoghurt and fruit. For me it’s not really a breakfast food as I find it too sweet first thing in the morning. I like to save my sweet hit for late in the evening, once I’ve taught […]

My Favourite Cookery Books

I have a lot of cookery books. Well over 50, I try hard to justify this as “I need them for work purposes” or “I cook a lot” but I will admit to it being a slight obsession. I just love to sit down and read recipes! Every now and again I try and have […]

Review: Healthy Snack Foods

Due to my lifestyle  (busy mum, running 2 businesses as a dietitian and a Pilates teacher) I tend to eat a good breakfast and dinner with my children. Lunchtime is quite variable. Sometimes I’m teaching classes, sometimes I am with clients and sometimes I am eating with the children. Either way it is busy so […]

Good Friday Mess.

This Easter Miss K is 4. Already she is telling me that the Easter bunny will be coming with chocolate eggs – which is not something she has picked up from home… so today we took full advantage of our local churches and descended into the full on Mess of Messy Church. Good Friday morning we […]
