You may be reading this title thinking what the heck? Seaweed bacon? Yes that’s right, seaweed in the form of crunchy leaves that fry like bacon. Seamore is a company specialising in yes you guessed it seaweed! Currently they stock ‘I sea pasta’ and ‘I sea bacon’. This week I decided to try out this seaweed ‘bacon’ that is 100% wild organic seaweed and reap the health benefits!
I recently went on a very big shopping spree, splashing my cash on some gluten free makeup! I decided to do some online shopping at Lucy Rose, which sells various organic, vegan, cruelty free and gluten free products and QVC which has been a firm favourite of mine for many years.
The story of Mr Lee’s pot noodles starts with a man called Damien Lee. A big lover of pot noodles, he embarked on creating his own style of pot noodle. Damien was diagnosed with cancer, and knew that in order to become well again, he would need to make a change in his lifestyle and his diet. He was determined to keep his body and mind healthy. So by revolutionising the pot noodle, he created something that was full of goodness without all of the rubbish ingredients. When Mr Lee got the all clear, Mr Lees Noodles was born.
I have never made a cake in a microwave before and was intrigued by how my carrot cake in a microwave would turn out! This carrot cake was very moist and incredibly delicious! I was a little unsure about making a cake this way, but I think it turned out pretty well!
I recently purchased gluten free cookies from a company called Sourdough Mess. The company was created by Maria Stafano who decided to set up a micro bakery in her flat in East London. Maria currently specialises in making vegan and gluten free cookies as well as vegan artisan bread to deliver straight to your door. Sourdough mess can also be found at various markets and free from events.
This is a review for Angels and Cookies cookie dough. The company, founded by Karen Cappetta is based in the UK and produces ready to go gourmet cookie dough that is not only gluten free, but also egg free, dairy free, nut free, wheat free and vegan so it caters for all! I chose this company as I wanted to see just how all these organic ingredients, also free from hydrogenated oils, additives, preservatives and anything artificial would taste! Currently, there are three flavours available: chocolate chip, chocolate fudge and ginger and spice.
I absolutely love lamb pasta bake. As you all have probably guessed, I don’t like faffing when it comes to my food. I like making grub that tastes good and I try to use ingredients that don’t cost the earth. Bish bash bosh job done! This week, I made a lamb pasta bake, with courgettes, spring onions and parmesan cheese, with a few large spoonfuls of Greek yoghurt.
I never used to be a massive fan of sweet potatoes until recently when I was getting bored of having the same old same old and wanted to spice up my life! Sweet potatoes are a good way of changing up recipes and you can do a lot with them. You can mash them, cut them into wedges, make thin fries, make a topping with them and more! You can create many exciting recipes.
We all need that little boost of energy to get us through the day. There are lots of energy bars available out there to buy but they are quite expensive. So, as another option, you could make them at home and make a big batch that you can keep in the fridge! I have made my own energy bars and they were easy to make and took me about 10 minutes to prepare!
