We have had a great response to our shout out for helping to choose our new addition to the Cookie Shot family. Lots of variety in there from fruity and nutty, to caramel and spicy, as well as a few strange ones. Re: the gin & tonic suggestion – better drank than eaten I think!
Last night (9th May) we attended the 2016 Free From Food Awards Ireland, a lovely black-tie gala event at the historic Mansion House in Dublin. As always, there was stiff competition from some incredible Irish food brands producing fabulous free from foods.
We were absolutely overwhelmed with the amazing response from the judges who awarded us four Gold awards for our High Omega Berry Granola in the Raw & Super Foods Category, the Cranberry & Hazelnut Sodabread Toasts in the Crackers & Crispbreads category, the Belgium Chocolate Orange Biscuit Cake in the Biscuits & Cookies category, and our new gluten free Bite box in the Innovation category!
So, what do you really need to have a well-equipped kitchen ready for whenever the mood to bake strikes you? Aside from a good oven and a strong pair of hands there’s only a few essential tools you need.
Think a packed lunch is only for school children? Think again. If you spend up to €7 (£5) every work day on grabbing lunch from a local café or shop you could be spending over €1,000 a year of your hard-earned cash just on lunch. And it’s more than likely that for those of us who have food allergies, intolerances or special diets the choice is going to be seriously limited.
So ditch the supermarket sandwich and try one of our favourite packed lunch ideas from soups and salads, to wraps and full hot meals.
Vegan Mammy shares her favourite vegan snacks for kids when she's out and about.
As a mother with two kids on a vegan and gluten free diet, it can be hard to find snacks and treats when we're out and about. A little planning and having ideas of what you can buy makes life a lot easier. Kids get hungry often and having snacks ready can really help avoid the kids (and me!) getting cranky. I also like to have food on hand for babies and young kids if we go out for a meal and there's not much suitable for them on the menu.
