Dinner at L’Avinyet, Sitges

Yesterday, after a long and relaxing day on the beach at Platja dels Balmins, we headed into central Sitges for drinks and dinner. We had a couple of drinks - and some excellent people-watching - sitting outside Parrots, then moved on to my favourite eatery here in Sitges: L'Avinyet. I discovered it last year with ...

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 ...

A healthy salad

I travel for work. A lot. And one of the hardest parts of business travel (believe me) is eating healthily. I’m constantly presented with deeply delicious and dangerously unhealthy food on room service menus. And my will-power is virtually non-existent. For example: just this evening, I hummed and hawed about choosing the healthy salad. The ...

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 ...
