*Stur Water Enhancers Review

Do you drink enough? I most certainly know I should but unfornately I don't and well, that's where Stur comes in. Thank you to the lovely team at Stur for gifting me with some of their water enhancers. So, what is Stur? It is a family run company which was initially created by the owner for his pregnant wife in a bid to ensure that she drank more water. I mean, does it get any sweeter than this? They produce both satchet and liquid water enhancers. What do you do with them, simply stir into water and drink away. Their enhancers are natural fruit and tea flavours high in Vitamin C which is an antioxidant and plays a role in Carnitine and Collagen synthesis. No GMOs, naturally flavoured and naturally sweetened; drinking a glass of water has never been so exciting.

Brioche Toast Three Ways

It's my 27th birthday tomorrow, feeling blessed to be alive and in good health! Breakfast is my favourite meal of the day; the possibilities are endless and that my fellow beings is what I live for. Brioche bread is a light type of bread; one that's very rich and undoubtedly delicious. Its 'pillowy' interior is what makes this bread so special, of course it makes an exceptional breakfast candidate. As for the toppings, fruit is always a great idea. Eating fruit on an empty stomach allows the digestive system to break down the sugars in the fruit quickly allowing us to get the complete nutritional benefits. Having fruit with your breakfast is a great way to get in some antioxidants and of course they count towards your 5 a day. Who ever said you can't put fruit on toast?

Grey Restaurant, Cardiff Review

In this modern world, it can be difficult to find the time to relax, the time to do something as a couple, yes I'm talking about date night. My boyfriend and I are very much into food, we are self confessed foodies. Date night is something we try and have every week, even if it means just heading out for pizza and the cinema. We recently headed out for a lovely sit down dinner at Grey Restaurant and Lounge which is located in the Hilton hotel here in Cardiff. The decor, modern and minimal, the location, central and the food, read on to find out.

Warburtons Thins

Anyone who knows you will tell you that I love all things bread! If I could just live out the rest of my days by a bread market, I would. So today I brought out the Warbutons brown thins after a leg session in the gym. This is probably the quickest sandwich I've ever whipped up, talk about feeling ravenous after an intense workout. These warburtons thins can be prepared in a variety of ways to suit you, thats the best thing about them. Toast them, fill them up or simply top them, either way they are pretty delicious. What did I do to mine? Read on to find out.

*Chicken Pilaf with greek yoghurt and chives

I love food but I enjoying cooking for other people even more. Last night I took some time out to cook a delicious dish for a few friends. I made a pot of Chicken Pilaf which went down a treat. Do you ever take the time to sit down and have dinner with your loved ones? Eating with other people somehow makes food more enjoyable and I guess that may be because food is a very social thing. Making this dish was made easy by Uncle Ben's Long grain & Wild Rice. Thank you to the Uncle Ben's team for kindly sending over an exceptional package. Cooking doesn't have to be hard, there's always a way around it and well when it comes to rice, Uncle Ben's is a good place to start.
