Twinings Celebrate 80 Years of English Breakfast Tea

Did you know it is 80 years since English Breakfast Tea was first brewed? Despite drinking an awful lot of the stuff, I had no idea until the other day when I received a rather lovely surprise package from the people at Twinings. And it’s mine – it’s got my name on it! English Breakfast

Review: Special K Multi-Grain Porridge

We all know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day – and we now have a new type of porridge to eat on days when it is cold and damp. Special K have launched an instant multi-grain porridge, available in three flavours, that comes in individual sachets and takes just two-and-a-half minutes

Review: Graze.com Breakfast Delivery

A few weeks ago, before she went off to see the world (you are following Tara’s travels over on Rise and Shine Paps aren’t you?), Tara gave me a code to try the new Graze.com breakfasts. I do like a bowl of porridge, and all this cycling is making me very hungry, so naturally I logged into

Road Trip to Norfolk to See the Sea

Next year I will be undertaking one massive road trip – a trip of a life time – riding through some of the most iconic places in America on a Harley Davidson motorbike. I can’t wait. Really. It is going to be such an amazing experience. But it is, of course, possible to have a fantastic

Review: Rachel’s Organic Mango Yogurt

Big pots of yogurt like those by Rachel’s are great for keeping in the fridge to use at breakfast time and for deserts. This is the new Mango flavour, which is absolutely perfect for summer. The mango flavour is utterly gorgeous. The yogurt is smooth and creamy and full of flavour, with bits of mango

Review: Rude Health Breakfasts

The other day on holiday my Dad asked “what is honest food?” He was referring to the claim on the side of the Rude Health Granola box I’d taken with me for breakfast. I said “Honest Food: You can see what you’re eating – there’s nothing else in it.” For Rude Health this is one

Review & Giveaway: New Kelloggs Cereals

A while ago I said you’d be getting three breakfast cereal posts in quick succession. That was a month ago now. Oops. Anyway, here’s the second! Kelloggs have introduced four new cereals with lower sugar to give us a good balanced start to the day. Aimed at children (and considered healthy enough to be advertised

Review: Jordans Crunchy Oat Granola – Raisin & Almond

Thanks to that Jenny Craig trial I did at the back end of last year I have got into a routine of eating breakfast again. Most days, that is; some days I just don’t fancy anything, but most days I’ll have some cereal or porridge or a banana or something like that. I’ve actually been

Weight Watchers: Move More, Sit Less

Our Blog Ambassador challenge this week has been move more, sit less. We were encouraged to stand up more, walk around more and generally exercise more. At the beginning of the week I ordered 30 Day Shred, a workout DVD by Jillian Michaels that I have been told over and over again really gets results.

Weight Watchers: A Week of Breakfasts

This week I was challenged by Weight Watchers to eat breakfast daily. I said last week that I am very bad at eating breakfast – I’m in too much of a rush in the mornings and besides don’t really fancy anything to eat. But I did, because it was a challenge. I had a selection

Weight Watchers: Back from Holiday

I made it clear in my last post about my Weight Watchers journey that I would not be counting while on holiday. For LincsGeek and I food on holiday is a very important part of the experience – we enjoy our food, enjoy eating out, enjoy finding a restaurant we love and going back to

I’m Actually Not Hungry – Jenny Craig Week 1

Last weekend I introduced you to the fact that I’m giving the Jenny Craig diet plan a go over the next few weeks thanks to a competition win. The night before I started the programme I had pretty much already decided that I’d failed, but that I was going to try my best to get

2012 has already been a very important year for us Brits. Not only are we celebrating our Queen’s Jubilee year, but we are also hosting the Olympics. And what could be more British than some fine loose leaf tea in a special commemorative tin? Oh go on then… The thing about loose leaf tea is,

Rachel's Organic Yoghurt

For the last couple of weeks I’ve had a fridge full of yoghurt (well, the top shelf anyway, but that’s still a lot of yoghurt) thanks to the nice people over at Rachel’s Organic, who sent me a box full to try. Rachel’s Organic is Britain’s first certified organic dairy, producing a range of organic yogurts,
