Brewdog is coming!

I've been as excited as a child on Christmas Eve knowing that Brewdog's biggest ever pub is opening about 5mins walk from my office. I'm a big fan of their beers - a conversion to which has left me leering at standard lagers. Yes, I've morphed into a craft beer snob. Recent tours and visits ...

Birthday dinner combo

The very generous and generally lovely @TheFrankFlyer took me to the local Wagamama for a celebratory dinner last night (yes, you still get to celebrate birthdays once you're 40 plus...) and went for my favourite: their very excellent Chicken Katsu Curry. I usually try to vary my selections there, often ordering something new. But last ...

Huel breakfast on the go

Keeping a Huel bar close at hand saves me from a calorific airline breakfast. Three cheers for Huel!

A Huel upgrade

Now that I'm back into a semblance of healthy eating (healthy for me, that is - I'm no saint, nor am I a puritan!) and eating drinking consuming Huel regularly, I decided to expand my Huel repertoire and try new combinations. I've already identified a couple of combinations that I really like: One mixing Huel with ...

Huel keeping hunger at bay

Two days into my reformed ways for 2017 and food is never far from my mind. I'm back using Huel as a meal replacement and valuable source of vitamins and minerals. It makes for a great start to the day and keeps me really, really full. Which in turn makes it super-easy to avoid snacking or ...

A change of gears required…

When I say I 'over-consumed' over the Christmas holidays, it's no exaggeration. I consistently ate whatever was put in front of me. When I wasn't eating, I was waiting on new food being prepared, or taking a short break after finishing my last meal. Or I was asleep.  Breaks between meals were short and sweet, ...

Beating the meat sweats

I'm really not proud of myself this evening. I've done absolutely nothing except eat far too much and then regret my actions.  Let's start at the beginning. Yesterday evening, @FrankDJS booked us brunch at the local 'Big Easy', kicking off at 11:30am. My plan was therefore simple: get up early, go for a run, then ...

Finally! Matcha green tea frappuccinos in London

They've been a guilty pleasure on every trip I've taken to Asia...a visit to a Starbucks for a delicious matcha green tea frappuccino. Malaysia. Singapore. Japan. It's always the same. That said, I'm not normally a frappuccino drinker - if I go to Starbucks, I have a very ordinary coffee. No syrups, no cappuccino, nothing ...

More meaty goodness at Boisdale

@FrankDJS and I had an early dinner at Boisdale, Canary Wharf last night. I won't beat around the bush - it was superb. I'd completed a bit of a run earlier that day and had worked up quite the appetite. https://www.instagram.com/p/BJVv_zEjbT_/?taken-by=macpsych I began with a super starter portion of haggis, neeps and tatties and a glass of ...
