Here’s to the British Summer in all its glory! The sporadic, scattered bouts of sunshine, flip flop days and sparkling riverbanks,coupled with the rain and no play-days! Here’s to procceco in the sun, picnics and pimms with friends and muddy welly boots in the park! Lavish Cream teas, bright red fruits, white linens and grass stains! You are unplanned and spontaneous England and we love you! 

Have a lovely weekend!

image

This is another quick and super tasty salad/lightmeal idea, the orginal recipe i made involves chorizo but I left that out for the clean version!

Ingredients:

Chicken breast
1 chilli chopped
2 large garlic cloves chopped
Sea salt
Cracked black pepper
Baby rocket leaves
Paprika
Balsamic
Vine tomato
Thyme
Parmesan shavings

Lightly cook the chicken breast in a little water or oil, add the garlic and chilli and stir,add the tomato chopped and the thyme and paprika, stir lightly until chicken is cooked through, splash a little balsamic on the rocket and shave some parmesan on top for garnish.

FEATURE FRIDAY -VividDrinks

image

First of all apologies for the lack of posts recently, half term is hectic for me but Happy Easter to you all and here is my feature friday for this lovely bank holiday weekend!

I was recently lucky enough to sample some wonderful caffeine treats from VividDrinks, im not one for turning down anything that involves greentea or coffee, especially one that explores  innovative, new ways to get my caffeine fix.

At a glance Vivid has everything that appeals to the eye when im out shopping for thirst quenchers on the go,small yet functional, healthy, mouthwatering flavour choices and packed with good energy sources to keep me going.Matcha tea has been one of my favourite summer drinks for a few years now, I tend to merge into my iced tea mode when the sun starts make an appearance so I was more than excited to carry these little beauties around in my handbag, along side my meal prep this week.

I have to say it was hard to choose a favourite out of these (grape and elderflower, lime, honey and ginger, pear and rhubarb) but I think if there has to be a winner, i’d go for the grape and elderflower! Alot of drinks you can buy can be a let down when it comes to flavour but I must say this wasnt the case with these, they were all delicious and even better when chilled or iced. If like me you are a health nut or simply looking for a healthy swap for your iced drinks this coming summer, I fully recommend you look out for Vivid drinks on the shelves!
