When I was younger, I remember being weird for not being able to eat nuts (well I was weird because of other things too, but that is not the point). Having a food allergy was unusual, that sadly is not the case now. The stats differ from source to source, but there seems to be a consensus that allergies are on the up across the globe. I thought it was time to have a bit of a chat about it.
Suns out guns out, along with everything else. It has been a hot and sticky January full of days out in the sun and sweaty sessions working out in the garage. The nature of the month has brought about my favourite products this month.
Usually, I use this as an opportunity to tell you about the food products that I have been loving, this month is a little different as I have 3 new loves that are not things to eat but they are products from the kitchen that I am loving.
Each month I want to make a fuss of the things that we have been loving or obsessed with. Summer is in full swing down here is the southern hemisphere so most of the things we have been loving are light and refreshing.
Another year over and a new one underway. I hope you had a great break and enjoyed time with friends and family. We had a year with lots of ups and downs, so it was nice to finish the year with a positive experience. We took a lovely family holiday in Northland, the kids went camping for the first time, and we all enjoyed a lovely time in the sunshine.
Most of us learn quickly that if you want to eat on the go it means making extras bring with you. I know that having a packet of nuts for snacking on is a great option but sadly not something I can't do.
I've been trucking around beef jerky and sunflower seeds for what feels like a lifetime.
