Finest Coffee at Folk

Just popped up to Folk.Cafe this morning for a coffee and some breakfast. Being the last day of the Eat out to help out government scheme I took advantage of this.

Homemade Protein Shake

I have found this incredible homemade protein shake from Jamie Oliver. Its an alternative to using supplements and protein powder. I think i'd like to fit this in as well as use my normal protein powders. Just sound so good!
  • 1 banana, peeled
  • 150g low-fat natural yoghurt or soya yoghurt
  • 100ml of semi-skimmed milk or dairy-free milk
  • 1 tbsp peanut butter
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • ½ tsp cinnamon (or to taste)
Simply blend all together! Read more at  

Gastrono – Me 

If your local to Bury St Edmunds I really do recommend the little cafe and bakery on St John's Street called Gastrono - Me. From the outside it looks like a bakery but inside is a cafe that does a range of food and has some truly amazing breakfasts. I had the Hash once and just recently I had the smoke salmon and scrambled eggs. Presented on some of their own baked bread. Decent sized portions too!  Here is the smoke salmon and scrambled eggs.  A decent size breakfast! Here is their breakfast menu too!

Strawberry Season is here!

The strawberry season is here! In my village they grow the reddest strawberries. Normally only available for a few weeks due to the popularity in the village. There is a farm up the back lanes of my village that has a little stall where they sell jam too! The signs on the main road are put up but left covered until one morning they uncover them to see all of the strawberries between the hours of 9 - 5. Because they are so popular people travel far and wide to get them. In 2015 the harvest was short and they ran out very quickly. This season is supposed to last longer!

A touch of sushi 

Literally a touch. This was from a restaurant in Cirencester. A bento box!
