How to Stay Nutritious at the Office

When you spend your weekdays sat at a desk, staying fit and healthy can be troublesome. After a long, hard day’s work, exercise seems like too much effort and hassle. Plus, if your work brings you stress, you can find yourself craving sweets and junk food. Therefore, trying to lead a nutritious lifestyle can seem frustrating when your work life is plagued with sitting still, little exercise, and leaving you too tired when you do have free time.

Three Food Items You Can Keep in Your Car for a Busy Morning

Eating is important, even if you have to do so on the go. Of course, this is not ideal, and it goes without saying that most of us would like a nice sit-down type breakfast that is relaxing and doesn’t involve multitasking. There are days though, when eating on the go is something we have to do, simply because we are running late, or have a lot to get done. With that in mind, here are a few quick and easy meals that are ideal for anyone who has a busy day ahead, be it going car shopping, or taking the long way to work.

Pumpkin Waffle Recipe – Gluten Free

To pull readers in I perhaps could have entitled this blog “Easy, Gluten-Free Waffle Recipe” or anything along those lines which implies its simplicity, but I’d be lying through my teeth – err, through my keyboard… I don’t know if it’s just me or indeed if this is one of the more challenging waffle recipes to get right, but having to cater to a gluten-intolerant stomach in my household I simply could not give up on a delicious gluten-free diet that’s healthy too. You rarely find all three of those properties in any recipe, so I eventually got it right and I truly hope you have an easier time of it.

And the winner goes to…The best place to buy your wine

When it comes to buying wine, there are some factors to consider. Are you buying it as a gift, or just to enjoy alongside your takeaway and Netflix? Are you a connoisseur of rare vintages and obscure vintners, or are you a newcomer looking for something light and pleasant? And, last but not least, what is your budget? It can be quite discouraging to set out to buy a good bottle, when you haven’t the faintest idea where to look – and it would be a shame if you let this stop you!

The Culinary Delights of York

I’m almost afraid to publish this little preview of what the culinary delights of York have in store for any foodie who is thinking about making their way to this history-rich city, quite simply because all the options (and more) might have you feeling like a kid in a candy store! I mean the fact that there are food and drinks festivals should say a lot about York’s culinary scene, so the only thing left for you is to head on down and get a true taste of it yourself.

York has firmly established itself as the county’s foodie capital, with a table under the spires of northern Europe’s largest gothic cathedral making for the venue for just one of the many unique dining experiences to immerse oneself in. Contemporary culinary evolution meets traditional favourites to create an extensive mix of gastronomic choices that will leave even the fussiest of foodies extensively satisfied, if not a bit disappointed that they just didn’t have the time to try everything out.

Literally everything is on offer and you really don’t have to look hard at all to find what you’re specifically looking for. However, you are encouraged to try out some of the local dishes, many of which will undoubtedly be familiar to you, except they have that good old Yorkie-spin to them. So the good old Sunday roast will perhaps come with trimmings prepared and served York-style, which can be found at one of the many gastro pubs in the city.

York boasts a number of award winning restaurants as well, with some signature chef dishes that will have you associating a specific, unique taste to your visit to York once you roll out of town again. This is where you’d go for your healthy portions of modern British cuisine.

Restaurants, cafes, food courts at malls and resident hotel restaurants aren’t the only places where the culinary tastes and delights of York can be sampled. In fact, one can say that the York Food and Drink Festival is where the true taste of York comes to the fore, quite simply because it is during this annual event when the singular focus of the people in this history-rich town is on food – how it tastes, how it’s prepared, where it comes from and how it’s to be served and enjoyed.

It is after all the biggest of the UK’s food festivals and it’s still going strong after celebrating its 20th year, last year in 2016. While you’re getting up-close and personal with the whole of Yorkshire’s finest chefs, cooks, recipes and even producers, you can take advantage of this chance to sample as much as you can.

The children can get involved as well with the kids’ hands-on cooking classes, while the drinks element comes into to play for adults to enjoy through wine tastings and a swig of some beverages from all over the world, even though the main focus is on those which are sourced locally and from some of the immediate surrounding areas.
