Pinkberry Chocolate Hazelnut Frozen Yoghurt

I first tried Pinkberry in New York, and it was the chocolate hazelnut flavour that I had sampled. It was sublime. Pure frozen bliss. And the fact that this is frozen yoghurt as opposed to ice-cream made it even more appealing from a weight-loss perspective. They have recently opened a new kiosk at Westfield Stratford (they…

Pho Restaurant – Shredded Chicken Salad

I visited Pho for lunch today…it is a Vietnamese fast food chain. I think I had the hot & spicy chicken noodle broth last time. I don’t even know why I got it…I know I don’t like noodle-y soups. For me, noodles taste good coated in a lovely sauce – not dropped into a watery broth….

Tortilla – Naked Burrito (with Pork)

I have previously reviewed the Mission Burrito Pork Salad (I don’t know why it’s pork I keep opting for!) So Tortilla is a restaurant chain with a similar concept to Mission Burrito, I guess the clue is in the title! Tortilla prides itself as creating and serving ‘California-style burritos and tacos’ – whatever that means… To…

Aldi Cashew Crush Bars VS Nakd Cashew Cookie Bar

So I really wanted to review these two bars…they are raw fruit and nut bars which provide a nutritious, on-the-go snack. They both only contain 2 ingredients each, just dates and cashew nuts…and actually the exact same proportion of each of these ingredients: 51% cashew nuts and 49% dates. I love that there aren’t loads…

Rocks Squash – Fizzy Drinks with Less Guilt…

I have always avoided fizzy drinks…deeming them extremely detrimental for a whole range of health issues. I managed to abstain so well for years, only indulging in them now and again for a special occasion. However, for the last few months, my ability to resist the temptation whilst others around me are drinking them has…

Briannas Home Style Dijon Honey Mustard Dressing

For me it is the dressing which transforms a boring, uninviting salad into something delicious and moreish…and without it, I certainly would not eat a salad as a main meal. Whether we are talking a fancy shop-bought version or even just a little dash of balsamic vinegar and olive oil, it seems to do the…

Simple Lemon and Yoghurt Slaw

I am a big fan of slaws…I prefer crunchy salads as opposed to ones consisting primarily of leaves. I feel they are a lot more satisfying and tasty as a side. Obviously, an elaborate salad, packed with loads of different ingredients, for example smoked salmon, pine nuts, avocado and more, with leaves, is yummy. But…

Mission Burrito – Pork Salad Box

Mission Burrito is a fast food Mexican restaurant with several branches dotted around England. Salad doesn’t need to be boring…I tried the Salad Box option at Mission Burrito today. Definitely not the ‘healthiest’ salad out there, especially when teemed with lashings of sour cream and cheese (I opted against this.) However, I still think it…

Gourmet Burger Kitchen – GBK

I have fallen in love with this place again. I didn’t think it could be healthy, but actually the ‘bunless’ option for 50p extra is actually not too bad for you – plus it is quite filling.  The bun gets replaced with homeslaw (think coleslaw but with a vinaigrette instead of calorific mayo) and you get…

Innocent Coconut Water

I really love the taste of this coconut water, I have tried a few before, but for me, this has been the best. It claims to have a fresh taste and I have to admit I totally get that freshness of flavour when I am drinking it. In the past I have bought coconut water…

Itsu Vegetable Festival Crystal Noodle Cup

I saw this in the supermarket and it was on offer…it looked like a posh pot noodle and I thought I would give it a try! At 160 calories I thought it would be good as a healthy lunch or dinner option one day; a good thing to have in the cupboard  for when you need something quick…
