  • Here’s a bowl that will put you back in control of your portions. Full Stop Bowl are saying that people should start by focusing less on what they eat and much more on how much they eat. Like most diet plans out there, it is hard to sit there and isolate yourself from the rest of the family at tea time with yourself eating lettuce and the rest having their Friday night pizza. This is all about the amount you eat, instead of what you eat. Take a look fullstopbowl.com

  • Look what Waitrose have just brought out! Are you ready for this?… Kuku Sabzi Herb Frittata. And breathe. It’s a mouthful to say but fortunately not a mouthful of bad ingredients as it has low sugars and lots of protein. Per slice, it’s 96 calories each. It includes grilled red pepper, spinach and is suitable for vegetarians. If you’re looking for something on the go then it could be a good option, plus just think how cool you’ll sound asking at customer service for where you can find their kuku sabzi herb frittata. Ok, not that cool.
