    Three Easy, Quick and Healthy Go To Meals

    During the past five months, going to a PT and working hard to loose weight, I’ve eaten more than before, just the right things. I thought calorie counting and macro managing might be boring and hard but on the contrary I’ve found it really fun and interesting. I like meal prepping and coming up with new combinations of food to match what I’m allowed to eat. During this time, I have found a couple of favourites which I thought I’d share with you. Here are three quick and healthy meals for when I want something easy to make. Breakfast I’ve previously eaten Greek yoghurt, fresh fruit and seeds with a…

    The Ivy | A New Interior and Food Heaven in Leeds

    The Ivy, one of Leeds’ latest restaurant opening which you don’t want to miss out on. It might be prettier than the food is tasty but together, it promises a lovely time. It’s only been open a couple of weeks but I’ve been twice already. Once for a three course evening meal* and a second time for a fuel filled weekend breakfast. I really enjoyed both my visits but if I had to choose, I’d say dinner is more worthwhile than breakfast. The Ivy Interior Located at Victoria Quarter in Leeds, you already know by the area that it’s going to be a fancy restaurant. The restaurant is set over…

  • Whitelock's Candlelit Victorian Banquet

    Whitelock’s Candlelit Victorian Banquet in Leeds

    For Leeds Indie Food, Whitelock’s threw a Candlelit Victorian Banquet, serving a feast across seven courses. A candlelit dinner on an already warm and clammy evening made the venue really warm. Like the Victorians, we neither had any air con. Across four hours, seven courses were served, all main course sized meaning it was a lot of food to be consumed. I don’t know how the Victorians did it, especially wearing all the clothes they did and most likely alongside more alcohol than we drank on the night (two glasses of fizz and an ale). Still, this food event is up there as one of my favourites. The table was…

  • Jet2 Christmas Event

    Influencer Christmas Dinner with Jet2

    One of the highlights this month was going to Jet2’s Christmas Dinner event. Actually, it was the last day of November but for me it marked the first of many Christmas celebrations. They’d picked a fab day for it as it was  snowing outside. Not that it stayed but still, it gave that extra Christmas feeling. Jet2 had booked out a room at The Tetley in Leeds to host the event for nine Leeds based bloggers. I’ve only been to The Tetley a couple of times but never upstairs so I was surprised to find this gorgeous room with one of the biggest dining tables I have ever seen. The…

  • Hive Leeds

    Hive | Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner Cafe

    There’s a new café in Leeds called Hive and they serve breakfast, lunch and dinner. If I had a job in city centre I’d probably come here a lot but sadly I work outside of town. Another sad thing is they’re not open during the weekend which is when I’d love to have a nearby breakfast place to call my local. I do get it though, the Wellington Place in Leeds mainly consists of offices rather than flats which means their main customers will be business people. I am thankful they’re open till late hours so even I can fit in a dinner here on a weeknight. My first visit however…
