Hello there! A little while ago I attended a bloggers brunch where we got to learn all sorts of tips and tricks from the super blogger Hannah Gale and Jaywing PR. I thought it would be just plain mean if I didn't share some of this blogging wisdom which got passed down to me.
If you're a frequent visitor to my blog then you'll probably already know that I believe that tea makes life better. I often feel like my they hasn't started properly unless I've had a cup of tea.
I was absolutely delighted when Indigo Herbs got in touch with me and asked me to try out and review some of their teas*. A little while ago I made organic raw chocolate for the first time using an Indigo Herbs kit. The chocolate was absolutely delicious with really high quality ingredients so I had high hopes for the teas.
I selected the Rise and Shine tea, Monthly moontime and Estonian Chaga mushroom.
I eat very healthy day to day or at least I try! Crisps used to be my biggest downfall at all, I could have a healthy breakfast, lunch and dinner but then I would succumb to a bag of crisps and feel really guilty after. This was until I discovered Propercorn, it's my absolute favourite snack at the moment and the best thing about it that it's guilt free! It's gluten free, low in calories, carbs, fats and comes in lots of different flavours. When Propercorn* emailed me and invited to experiment with their popcorn to celebrate the launch of their new campaign The Institute Of Flavour, I almost squealed with excitement! I mean I have been making a trip to the shop every lunch time just to get my hands on a bag so I was so so happy to be sent a generous helping of Propercorn. Below you can read my review of every single flavour!
I believe I have discovered Leeds best kept foodie secret - The Food Academy, a restaurant ran by Leeds City College studetns. I got invited for a complimentary four course meal to show off the talents of the students. I had never heard of The Food Academy so in all honesty I wasn't really sure what to expect but I'm never one to turn down a foodie opportunity. Well here's the spoiler alert - the food was absolutely amazing!
We got greeted with some Pimms cocktails and then sat down for our meal. Whilst we waited for the starters we were presented with some home baked sun dried tomato bread rolls, which the boy said was absolutely delicious. The staff were lovely though and presented me with some gluten free bread.
For our starters we had Veal and Goats Cheese Nugget which was served up with pickled beetroot, cucumber, spring onion and radish.The restaurant catered for my gluten intolerance by serving up the dish without the breadcrumbs for me. It was so so good! There was such a gorgeous combination of flavours I would order this dish again and again in fact I would go as far as saying that it was one of my favourite starters I've ever had.
