Ten Things

seventies orange camper van

Hello hello!  How have you been?  I’ve been ogling this seventies camper van I spotted on Edinburgh’s Broughton Street earlier this week.  It almost makes me want to dust off my drivers licence and take off on adventures.  Almost!  Apart  from ogling camper vans I have been exploring east coast beaches, trying to fix up our garden, and watching the Eurovision song contest.  I’m not embarrassed to admit I’ve watched it every year since I don’t know when – it’s definitely my guilty pleasure!  We were rooting for Croatia this year!

On to the links!

1. To celebrate Green People’s 20th anniversary of selling lovely organic and natural skincare, and the launch of their special edition Rose Damask lipstick* (a lovely nude shade) I’m hosting a giveaway on Instagram this week to win £50 to spend online at Green People*.  To enter head this way!

2. Australia’s first rescued food supermarket opened, offering customers to pay what they can for food.

3.  Ethical shopping is nearly impossible?  An interesting read.

4.  UK salad ends the vegetable crisis – proving the case for reducing our reliance on foreign imports.

5.  Love this image so much.

6.  The myth of closed loop manufacturing.

7.  Fascinating – scientists have discovered a worm that eats plastic.

8.  Speaking of the number 8, you have 8 days left to register to vote in the General Election.  Registering only takes 5 minutes and ensures you have your say.

9.  This couple wear matching outfits every single day and it’s incredibly sweet.

10.  Finally, a heads up!  It’s currently 25% off at one of my ethical favourites – People Tree* – with code WFTD25 until midnight tonight!  I am coveting this top* and this top*.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!


Breakfast Five Ways with Nature’s Path

Have you heard of Nature’s Path before?  Nature’s Path is a family run, sustainably-driven company, who focus on making breakfast healthy, organic, and delicious with their range of cereals, granolas, oats, and cereal bars.

Their tasty array of cereals and granolas are a firm favourite in our house, adults and children alike.  However, no matter how delicious your breakfast cereal is, let’s admit that breakfast does get a a little dull when you’re just eating cereal with plain old milk day in, day out.

So today I’ve teamed up with Nature’s Path, to bring you five different breakfast cereal ideas.  I’ve used two of their delicious cereals – the gluten free Mesa Sunrise cereal flakes, and the tasty Nice & Nobbly gluten free granola – to create five tasty breakfast options that are a bit more exciting than your standard breakfast fare!

Breakfast Five Ways

breakfast cereal with flavoured milk

Looking to jazz up your morning bowl of cereal?  Try some flavoured milk – I opted for chocolate flavoured coconut milk and a sprinkling of cacao nibs for a decadent chocolate treat.  Think Coco Pops for grown ups!

cornflakes with walnut and banana

A more every day (and healthier!) way to enjoy cereal is by chopping some banana over your cereal, sprinkling a handful of crushed walnuts, and serving with regular or plant based milk.

cornflakes with berries

Another easy healthy breakfast idea is simply sprinkling some fresh berries on top of cereal, and pouring over your milk of choice.

bircher muesli with granola

Have you had bircher muesli before?  I must admit, I eat it most days.  In the evening I mix oats, plain yoghurt (vanilla yoghurt if I’m feeling fancy), half a grated apple, a large spoonful of desiccated coconut, and a handful of raisins, and spoon the mix in to an old jar.  Leave it in the fridge overnight, and the next morning the oats are lovely and soft.  It’s a lovely healthy breakfast idea on the go – I rarely have time to eat breakfast at home on work days so I simply pop the jar in my bag to eat at work.  To make it even more of a treat sprinkle some Nature’s Path Nice & Nobbly granola on top at breakfast time to add a delicious crunchy texture.

chocolate spread and granola on toast

Finally, we all love chocolate spread on toast, but for an extra special Sunday morning treat try sprinkling Nature’s Path mixed berry Nice & Nobbly granola and fresh berries over chocolate spread on toast.  So good in every way!

What’s your breakfast of choice?
