…and belated Happy Halloween. This year I carved my first pumpkin ever (mines on the left in the photo above) and then made soup with the left overs. Larger pumpkins aren’t the tastiest but I couldn’t see something edible go in the bin, so it was mixed with onions, garlic, potato, sage and stock and fed me for 2 meals. Thanks pumpkins.
In other news, Nakd were kind enough to get in contact to send me these natural bars to try:
Each bar is raw vegan, gluten free with no added sugar and counts as one of your five a day. Healthy snacking at the moment is important to me as I am now 38 weeks pregnant and have to eat every few hours otherwise morning sickness comes knocking on my door so these have been very handy to have around. They are mainly dates and nuts with other things added depending on the flavour and certainly fill the hole that would usually be filled by fat laden chocolate or crisps. They come in a wide variety of flavours like Cocoa Orange, Cashew Cookie, Pecan Pie and Berry Delight (my fav.) I have found the odd bit of stone or shell in there, but that’s to be expected using natural ingredients and is just an added bonus right? 😉 They’ve come with me in packed lunches to ante natal classes, shopping trips, days out to Blackpool to be eaten on the sea front whilst keeping a wary eye on the seagulls….
So yes, they are good things to have around if you are trying to be healthier but don’t want to feel like you are missing out on a treat.
This might be my last post in a while due to impending child arrival, I will be back early next year probably covered in baby sick and very sleep depraved. Wish me luck!
