The market is saturated with so-called ‘healthy’ snack bars at the moment, but what the manufacturers don’t tend to tell you about their ‘low fat’ treats is that they are packed full of refined sugar.
Kendells is one of my all time favourite restaurants in Leeds. That said, I hadn’t visited it since identifying my intolerance so I was intrigued as to how well they would cater for it.
I know they say your wedding day is the best day of your life but in the absence of a wedding ring, I’d say my brothers wedding day has got to be up there as one of my best! This was one of my first experiences of Coniston Hotel.
Mel was the lucky winner of the competition I ran in partnership with YorkTest and received a free Food&Drink Scan Programme worth £299.
One of my all time favourite home cooked meals prior to discovering my intolerances was my mum’s chicken curry with peaches. So, when I came across a similar dairy free and gluten free recipe in The Food Medic: Recipes & Fitness for a Healthier, Happier You, I had to try it…and it did not disappoint!

Before I met my partner, my meals very much had a theme; meat or fish with salad. No marinades, no homemade dressings, just very simple and very ‘same-y’. Don’t get me wrong, I had a couple of ‘signature’ dishes if I needed to pull out the big guns, but as a rule that was what I ate. It wasn’t that I couldn’t cook, it was more that I liked to go to the gym after work so by the time I got home, I just wanted something quick and easy that would fill a hole.
I’m obsessed with mango in salads at the moment. It’s like summer in a bowl! The dressing on this salad also packs a punch due to the addition of chilli, ginger and lime. Delicious!
