I have to say I go through my stages with green tea. There are times when I drink it quite often and then I usually go off it again. One of the things that puts me off is that if you don’t brew it for the exact right amount of time it can taste really bitter and just gross.
So I was rather intrigued when Erin from Zen Green Tea contacted me about their Matcha tea. Match tea is a rare green tea powder which apparently dissolves to form the smoothest green tea. Erin and co from Zen Green Tea, like More >
I love rice paper rolls and it’s disappointing how many thai places don’t have them on the menu opting for gluteneous deep fried spring rolls instead. However they are very simple and cheap to make so I often make them at home as a dinner entree or snack.
You can buy the rice paper sheets from most supermarkets and then you just need to decide what you want to fill them with. I usually make vegetarian versions using coriander, carrot and cucumber but go ahead and experiment with chicken, beef and different types of vegetables. You can also add rice noodles.

Here is my wrap up of week 2 of quitting sugar (this was obviously written a few weeks ago now!):
So week 2 was always going to be a challenging one, but I have to say I went into it with a pretty positive mindset. So why was week 2 going to be challenging? Well in the scheme of I Quit Sugar it’s the week you start adding more (good) fat to your diet so that definitely wasn’t the hard part. The hard part was that my week 2 happened to fall over Easter.
The good thing was that I am away More >
I had this post on another of my blogs… I guess I didn’t want to announce it to the whole world as I didn’t know what people would think… I know a lot of people will just think this is another fad diet but this is really working for me and over the next couple of posts you will see why… so here it is…
The title of this post sounds extreme right? Well it probably is but I am doing a little experiment.
Once again after starting this (being a health blog I started) blog I went back to my old More >
As with the spatchcock I received from Game Farm I wanted to make something simple with the Qual breast fillets I recieved from them. When you are cooking with such good quality meat it seems a shame to drown out it’s flavour with overpowering sauces. I therefore decided on the quail breast fillets with pasta, chilli, fresh herbs and olive oil recipe, once again from Game Farm’s website.
This dish was probably my favourite of all three that I cooked with Game Farm meat. Firstly it was easy to cook with as it was just the breast fillets but also because More >
With the spatchcock I received from Game Farm I decided to cook something reasonably simple and let the flavours of the bird come out. I therefore decided on the recipe from Game Farm’s website, spatchcock with white wine, lemon and rosemary.
The recipe was simple and quick to prepare and the flavours were delicious. Before receiving my package from Game Farm I had never considered cooking with any other bird except chicken (and turkey for Christmas). It was great to experiment with something new and I would love to cook with spatchcock again.
