Here we have a couple bullet points dedicated to things / people / products / websites / ideas we LOVE – take a look, you may like some also πŸ˜‰

  • Toast BeerΒ – using waste bread, think sandwich or bread loaf ends, to make BEER #Genius. Tristram Stuart the #FoodWasteCampaigner behind this project is the founder of Feed Back Global, a Charity committed to reducing food waste (currently 1/3 of the World’s food supply – and usually because it’s the wrong shape, size or colour which is utter MADNESS) – read all about it and join the movement too…
  • Organic Veg delivered to your door #YesPlease (for those of us that have jobs and can’t always get to the Farmers Market round the corner) we’d recommend:Β RiverfordΒ (for those London lads & lassies) /Β Tasty MisfitsΒ (for those honeyz that live in SW London), Β Wonky Veg BoxesΒ (for you lucky luscious Leicester dwellers) #WonkyIsHonkyTonkyΒ or for the rest of you baybez looking for the freshest & most delicious Carrot (that we have had yet on our culinary journey), tryΒ Abel & Cole
  • Mobile Phones – we all have them, we all use them (maybe too much), we’re a little glued to them you might say! Therefore we think it a good idea to grab yourself a Radiation Blocker from #IAmCellAware – take a look at this phenomenalΒ productΒ that actually BLOCKS incoming & outgoing radiation – without affecting your network coverage – and means your brain cells are also subject to a little less of that rather nasty Electromagnetic Field Radiation as well – #WeVoteYesPlease
  • HG WalterΒ the Butcher – undisputedly and unbiasedly (!) #TheBestButcher in town, their produce is free range, local & always organic fed – and to be honest the proof is in the (black) pudding… They also have tonnes of Veggies, epic condiments AND sugar free chocolate #HandsUpForHG
  • These FREE / SUSTAINABLY made (think recycled plastic bottles) / truly EPICΒ LeggingsΒ – all you gotta do is pay for the packaging πŸ™‚ #GirlfriendCollective
  • Tongue Scrapers – we hear you, WHAT are these?! A simple metal or copper spatula’esque type object, used for quite literally scraping the debris off your tongue! An Ayurvedic tradition which has been practised for centuries & happens to be the most efficient way of removing that build-up of bacteria on yer tongue – yes, the stuff that gives you bad breath etc. – we cannot recommend them more highly, and trust us you will be so pleasantly shocked at the remnants you scrape off πŸ˜‰
  • Sterilising and re-using jars – this is something we are into in a big way, in an attempt to use less plastic & most importantly to be a little less wasteful / a little more sustainable. Why not save every jar when you have finished a Nut Butter / a Coconut Oil / a jar of Tahini – & use them for; storing cupboard essentials, as pen pots at work or to transport your Breakfast & Lunch to work during the week?! #JarsOfJoy
  • Blogs we lurrrve / cook books we like & follow; I Quit Sugar – the inspiration behind this blogΒ /Β Sarah Wilson – the lady behind IQS whom we have had the pleasure of meeting a couple of times, her blog covers many a matter from hiking to living with Hashimoto’s & from beauty to bikes /Β My New Roots, well really we mean THIS Bread Loaf, please make it, you will not regret itΒ /Β David Gillespie – the source of many a fact we know about sugar & the effects it has on us when consumed in excess, #WeLoveDG & in particular his Food Database (where you can check the sugar content of pretttty much every foodstuff out there #ThanksDave) / & finally another wonderful lady with the same mission as us – Happy Sugar Habits – who kindly featured a cheeky Chocolate Brownie Recipe by us last year!
  • This truly tantalising Turmeric blend by Wunder Workshop is #LeBomb – we love it heated with a little Coconut Mylk, or in our Chia seed combos / in our Smoothies / swirled into a little Yoghurt #TotesTurmeric
  • If you don’t have quite enough time to make your own Kraut or Kimchi then pick some up from the wondrous Cultured Collective #GreatForTheGut
  • Documentaries we dig in a big way – Food Matters / Before the Flood / Food ChoicesΒ /Β CowspiracyΒ /Β What the Health – read the blurb, have a look at some reviews, if you’re remotely interested then watch these insightful, well researched & incredibly revealing truths behind the damage we are doing to our planet, what we consume, where it comes from as well as what small steps we can all take in making this world a slightly more sustainable & long standing place for the generations to come #ThisShizzleMatters
  • If you know you are nutrient deficient then there are two things you can do, A) start eating properly – cook for yourself & cut out the cr@p – read this for more info, & B) in order to aid point A you can boost the process by embarking on a month or two’s supply of supplements from VITL – with sustainably sourced Krill Oil & an all-encompassing range of Vitamins & Minerals delivered to your door you can’t go too wrong! #VITL4Vitality
