If you know me, you’ll know that I’m a pizza fanatic so when my buddies over at Chicago Town asked to collaborate on a post again, you betcha I’m there. I’m becoming a bit of a Chicago Town The Takeaway pizza ambassador by default but I’m totally ok with that because their pizzas are some of the best!
Treats, sweets and chocolate don’t have to be seasonal. You can definitely have them all year round (I mean every day) if you want them! Obviously, some people will just say “duh” and eat it anyway. This post probably isn’t for you. This post is for people that think that chocolate and cakes are ‘fattening’, bad for you and generally a once in a blue moon thing. Totally not the case. They’re obviously full of sugar and aren’t packed with vitamins but if they keep you sane in small quantities then they’re totally fine and I think, essential.
After two solid weeks of tracking my food and hitting my calories, it was time for a cheat. Cheats are so important to keep yourself sane during diets and because we’re all human and need a burger every once in a while! I don’t feel like I need a ‘cheat meal’ to this sort of proportion every week, (this is serious eating!) but every two weeks I’m definitely going to have something super tasty and head out for a meal.
I’m very much a home bird usually but recently I’ve been a bit of a social butterfly with so much going on. It’s the festive season, there’s always a lot happening around this time of year! But, saying that, I do love a good night in with my nearest and dearest. Whether it’s the girls or just my partner in crime, an evening on the sofa is sometimes just what you need when you’ve had a busy week at work.
I really love eating healthy, it makes me feel great and I’m such a foodie. I hate boring food and love to cook and create new things, so all in all, we get it, I love food! In our house we eat pretty clean, fresh and healthy 80% of the time and love a treat on a weekend (or a Wednesday, who’s counting?). The only thing is, cheat meals can add up quickly! For example, a takeaway pizza will set you back at least £15 if you’ve got a coupon and up to £30 if you haven’t got lucky in voucher land! This gets crazy and sometimes I think it’s really not worth it.
Fancy a really tasty after-work treat or cheeky lunchtime chow down? Pieminister is one of the latest eateries to open up in Notts and I’ll admit, it’s taken me a while to get down there and see what it’s all about. I thought Pieminister was more of a fast-food type of thing, I didn’t realise it was a proper fast-casual restaurant with knives, forks and beer bottles.
