Bacon and Mushroom Tagliatelle

From the Sainsburys Be Good To Yourself Range. 99p
I’m writing this review because about twice in the last year I have bought a microwave meal, and twice it has been this one; and I don’t want to forget what I thought of it, so I don’t buy it again. On the packet it says “tagliatelle in a creamy bacon and mushroom sauce. less than 3% fat.” Sounds delicious doesn’t it? Well it fails to say ‘50% pepper’. It even smelt delicious, but I couldn’t eat it (and I rarely can’t eat something!) because it had something in it that tasted horrible. I think it was pepper, and I’ve just read the ingrediants and pepper comes before the actual tagliatelle pasta in the list; so that does explain it if it’s in quantity order.

So as you can guess, I do not recommend this meal! Also, if you’re buying it as part of a diet, you can forget it because it has 49.2 grams of carbohydrate and 10.6 grams fo that is sugars. And I don’t know where the less than 3% fat on the cover came from, because the small print says it has 9 grams of fat in it. I’m sure there’s a trading standards issue there. Or maybe somewhere on the packet in even smaller print it says ‘the grams of fat referred to the top of the packet applies only when three quarters of the meal is thrown away.’

10 ideas to help you get through the day

I’m writing this on the dreariest January day ever with rain pouring down and freezing cold hands; it’s barely surprising that we are likely to feel depressed at this time of year. Some are lucky enough to only feel low in spirits every now and then, while others suffer with melancholia so bad they lose hope of never feeling that way again. The best way to deal with those times is usually distraction. By all means, take a little time to yourself if you need it, but then I think the best thing to do is find something else to keep your mind occupied. Here are some ideas…..
Slissie review
A chance to curb your cravings? A review of the Slissie
June 5, 2017
This is a new product, so I’ll begin by telling you what on earth a Slissie is! To be honest, it’s a bit difficult to explain, but it’s a weight-loss device that looks a little bit like a vape, and you suck on it like it is a vape, however there’s no actual vapour! Instead, it releases a burst of flavour into your mouth, and the idea is that it will trick your brain into thinking you’ve eaten something sweet, and therefore your cravings will be satisfied without actually having the calories of eating anything…..
