New in store: Boodles and Courgetti

Spiralizers are all the rage right now, and not to miss out on this, Sainsbury’s have launched some great new convenience products.

Courgetti (courgette spaghetti) and Boodles (butternut squash noodles) are great alternatives to spaghetti and noodles.

Neither product requires any preparation, simply open the bag, microwave and serve with your favourite pasta sauce, curry, stir-fry and whatever else takes your fancy.

Available in store now, priced at £1.20 per 300g portion.


New for 2016

As another year rolls by, many of us commit to a new set the same old new year’s resolutions, more determined than ever to stick to them.

Featuring highly on many people’s resolutions will be improved health and fitness, whether that be hitting the gym, dieting, or both, which no doubt sees the busiest month of the year at the gym, though, perhaps not at the sign up desk, as many will be dusting off their membership cards from years gone by.

Of course, I’m no exception and my resolution is to shift a few, (quit a few), pounds and my weapon of choice this year is WeightWatchers.

Over the next few months I’ll be writing about my experience with the plan, sharing recipes and ideas, and hopefully celebrating success.
