We love a protein shake after working out, during the weeks we usually mix our protein with water and chug it whilst running out of the gym and making our way to work. When we actually get the chance to make a delicious protein shake we jump at the chance because let’s be honest it tastes WAY better.
Annie loves nut butter so always opts for a shake that has NB in it! So we thought it was about time we created our own PB protein shake (we will be sharing more recipes soon). This protein shake is SO simple to make and is always Annie’s go to shake at the weekend.
1 scoop white chocolate protein
1tsp peanut butter
Ice cubes we usually use about 4
50ml Almond milk
Wack everything into a blender we use a Nutri Bullett and blend for a minute
Pour into a glass with a straw
Optional you can pop a strawberries on the side and enjoy!
See we said it was the quickest recipe ever!
We are on the hunt for the best places to go for brunch in London and Greater London and couldn’t think of a better topic to blog about. As you can probably already tell we are absolute foodies and we would say breakfast is our favourite meal of the day, you can read our blog post about it here. At the weekend going for brunch is ideal because it means a later breakfast and you can go all out on a big meal to start the day.
We read about Muriel’s Kitchen on The Culture Trip so when we were in the area before a blogging event we just had to take a visit. We tried to book a table online but it was fully booked (we would recommend booking in advance at the weekend), however decided to risk it and turn up. We had to wait around 15 minutes for a table because the whole place was jam packed but it was worth the wait.
Firstly we ordered drinks with Rachel opting to try a juice and Annie going for the bottomless filter coffee (£2 is a bargain!). The juice was delicious and very refreshing and we like the little touch of the cucumber on the side.
We then ordered the toast to share, this came with butter and a whole jar of jam!! The bread was very tasty and there was certainly enough for us to share whilst we waited for the main event! It was so hard to decide what to order for the main brunch. We had watched all the dishes come out the kitchen whilst waiting for a table and were eying up a couple of dishes. As Rachel doesn’t like eggs it was a bit easier to decide, (most brunch dishes always include some form of egg!), and choosing the pancakes was a clear winner. It was harder for Annie to decide however in the end she also went for the pancakes.
When they arrived, our faces and gasps of ‘wow’ even made the waitress chuckle. The presentation wad impressive and the portion size even better! We do not know how the pancakes were made but they were so fluffy and a bit cake like and had berries in them too. They were then topped with berry coulis, icing sugar and greek yoghurt. We were then given a very generous jug of maple syrup to pour over. I don’t think we need to write any more about because you can just drool over the pictures instead!
We are advocates of brunch and love trying out new places to go. This was definitely a great place to start our hunt for the best place for brunch in London and Greater London. Where would you recommend we try next?
Its January, the month were everyone is trying to be good and healthy! December has been and gone and everyone is trying to work off the extra weight they have gained. Its great to see so many people back in the gym! No matter how many times you fall down, stay strong and have the courage to get back up again!
This January why not try these amazing B-Fresh cold pressed juices. We definitely prefer juices to smoothies, so when we received these B Fresh Juices in the post we couldn’t wait to try them. We received three flavours; Strawberry fields, Green Warier and Golden Glow.
Strawberry Fields- This juice was by far our favourite it was sweet, but not sickly sweet. It was so refreshing and perfect to have in the afternoon when you need a little pick me up.
Green Warrior- This juice was really nice but if you don’t like the taste of spinach we wouldn’t recommend it is the juice for you. We had this juice first thing on Monday morning giving us the energy boost we needed. There was a subtle hint of Ginger but the main flavour in this juice was spinach.
Golden Glow- this was the juice we were most sceptical to try, there is something about carrot and turmeric that is a little daunting. We were pleasantly surprised and downed the bottle instantly. The main flavours coming through are orange and carrot but at the end you get a subtle kick of heat from the turmeric. This would be an ideal drink to wake you up on a sleepy morning when you are dreading the daily grind.
Head on over to Bfresh and place an order you won’t regret it! Or you can find them on Instagram where they regularly post and run competitions.
