Marvellous Market

It has been talked about recently whether organic food is of benefit or not. Some say it is better for you, others say it costs too much and getting a standard product is just the same, there is no difference.

I have to say I’m not sure, however I do believe in shopping locally. My local town has a regular food market, selling a wide variety of produce, including fruit, vegetables, near, fish, cakes, breads, pastries and much more.

All items are reasonably priced and I love the atmosphere and the general friendliness of the people when you buy. Keeps the community atmosphere alive I feel which is a very good thing.

I conscientiously try to shop from the market to ensure all my ingredients are fresh. You receive a good peace of mind knowing where the produce has come from. As to whether it is organic I’m not sure. However, I believe if you shop local and fresh that’s as good as organic to me.

If in doubt, shop local and support your towns market/local store/farmers market to receive excellent produce without the huge price tag.

Happy shopping

Snog Frozen Yogurt 

Fro-yo for those of you that don’t know is ‘Frozen Yogurt’ a healthier alternative to ice cream. It’s been quite the thing this summer, forget instagramming ice cream people have been snapping pictures of their fro-yo’s. 

I try to limit the amount of dairy I eat due to health reasons so ice cream isn’t always a wise choice for me but you know what they say; everything in moderation. 

Whilst I was in London, perusing the countless shops and cafes in the charming Covent Garden I happened upon Snog! It was rather eye catching with bright lights and quirky, colourful decor with some great tunes playing. I couldn’t resist. 

There’s lots of choice for different topping and fro-yo flavours. I stick with the classic flavour fro-yo and opted for blueberries, strawberries and chocolate hearts topped with chocolate sauce – I don’t do things by halves. 

It was gorgeous. Low in calorie, in comparison to an ice cream, and super tasty. I didn’t feel guilty at all. 

   
Fancy a snog?? Yes please….. đź’‹
