My Muscle Foods Order

I have recently started using meat from Muscle Foods. They specifically sell lean meat in vaccum sealed packs and deliver straight to your door. They also stock some great Nut Butters! In my order I got Lean Mince, Chicken Breast, Lean Bacon, Lean sausages, Protein Pizza, Sweet Potato Wedges and 2 Nut Butters. Not only is it delivered to your door, it is also very good value for money compared to supermarket prices. If you want to place an order or check out their website you can find them here.

Muscle Foods Nut Butters

I received my first Muscle Foods order yesterday and couldn't wait to share these with you. Nut butters are so popular these days as they are very good for you, but often they are high in calories, so therefore high in syns. The Prutella has the taste of Nutella, but half the calories. Perfect if you want a Nutella fix, great for spreading, to add to porridge, or even added to quark. The Coconut Peanut is a Peanut Butter made with coconut oil. It has a lovely coconut taste to it and could be used the same way as the Prutella. You can get yours here. Muscle Foods also sell lean meat delivered direct to your door. I have a few recipes to follow using these nut butters.

Summer Sale Shopping!

I haven't done a shopping post for a while, so here goes! Today I got myself a gorge necklace in the sale at Accessorize. £27 to £8.10. I love Accessorize! I needed to get some more moisturiser. I've been using Lancome Day and Night creams for a while, but they had ran out. I visited a fellow SW member at the No7 Counter at Boots and she helped me decide on something to use that suited my skin type. The service in boots was brilliant and actually she helped me choose a product that better suited my skin type and age. I had my bra size re measured. My back size has dropped but cup size is still a DD (thank the lord) as I've been losing boob like there is no tomorrow! The bra is Floozie by Frost French, which is a fave designer of mine, and it was only £12.95 in the sale. No doubt I'll have a lot more shopping posts in the coming weeks as I start the mammoth task  of buying a whole new wardrobe of clothes!

My Food Diary from Retro from Scratch

I got my beautiful food diary from Retro from Scratch on etsy. She also has an instagram page @retrofromscratch. She uses old books which she converts into new ones, with the added benefit of offering a variety of inserts to choose from. I currently have 2 books on the go; my food diary pictured below and also a shopping list book which I use everyday and features in my meal plan posts. The Food Diary has a recipe section at the back too. They are very well made and have some of the internal pages left in place, which I think is a lovely touch. I'm sure you'll agree they are gorgeous!
