I went for a nice family meal at the less snooty sister of the OXO restaurant, the Brasserie. With views across the Thames and an iconic tower building, this has been on my ‘must visit’ list for a while. Here’s the verdict.
The wonderful people at Delicious Alchemy recently sent me a box of goodies to try out. The company is dedicated to making gluten free alternatives easy to access, interesting and varied. As going gluten free is now not just a need for those with an intolerance, but is also becoming a popular health choice, I thought I’d try these products out and share my thoughts.

Both fresh juices and healthy smoothies have surged in popularity over recent years, as detoxing and healthy eating become more and more trendy. You can’t even walk into a Tescos without seeing cold pressed juice, and no self respecting fitness/healthy eating fanatic’s Instagram feed can be without a pic or two of homemade smoothies.

But I’m here to tell you that quinoa is not just for hipsters – it’s for life!
