Peppercorn Sauce from Lidl!

Some days you have all the time in the world to make pepper sauce from scratch and other days you want it right now please and thank you! This 100g sachet of peppercorn sauce from Lidl is spot on! One minute in the microwave and done! Anyone else tried it out yet? x

Taste of goodness...

Another Irish product that you will spot when you're in Supervalu and Iceland. There's 10 sauces in their range (I spotted 8 in my local Supervalu) and with BBQ, salads and all things summery on the go at the moment, adding flavour is all in the dressing and seasoning! With a big plate of zero heroes and your protein, these are worth spending the SmartPoints on in my opinion. Gluten, GM, shellfish & lactose free, suitable for vegetarians and made with rapeseed oil so they're a great source of Omega 3 too. Anyone tried them out? x

M&S Burger slaw...

Walking through M&S the other day I saw some of their new salad range on display and this one caught my eye! I love their special burger sauce! Will definitely try to make my own version of this too! Anyone spotted summer salads they're loving right now? x

Beetroot & Carrot wraps!

These may seem high in SPs for some but they are pretty substantial in size, nice and thick too! If you're watching your sugars, the carrot wrap is one that might interest you... Whilst we still have those salady days with us they might be fun to try... I picked up the beetroot ones this week! Anyone tried them out? x

Vegan takeaway lattes from Nescafe!

Spotted these in Tesco and thought they'd be handy for my dairy free or vegan pals who are on the go and might want to make themselves a fancy schmancy latte! SPs are per sachet made up with boiling water. It's great to see all these everywhere now isn't it! Anyone tried them? x

Pancakes from Dromod!

If you love their boxty then you're bound to love these too... Fluffy ready made pancakes! You can have 'em sweet or savoury, they come in a pack of 4 from Dromod and are currently in Aldi at the moment, all part of the #growwithAldi promotion of Irish companies! Great if you just fancy one without all the palaver! Anyone tried them out yet? x

Yummy Atlantic Treasures...


I love to promote Irish products, now more than ever we really need to help the home team out. So when Atlantic Treasures, a company based in Donegal contacted me about trying some of their mackerel range I thought I had to give it a try! Not a single regret. This range is so good, and with us all trying to eat less red meat and these beauties being on our doorstep they're well worth a try if you're a fish fan... So full of flavour that you'll only need half the pack for a substantial meal, bulk them up with salads and veggies and you've got a dinner worthy of instagram... I'm trying out a few recipes with them over the next few weeks but if you spot them definitely give them a try... I've done the SPs per half pack and full pack and although people might think they're a bit high they're full of all the good oils and fats so definitely worth it... Anyone else tried them out? x

Plant to Plate burger range from LIDL!

With BBQ weather upon us here's some flavoured plant based burgers from the LIDL range Plant to Plate... Irish made, vegan and full of flavour what's not to love! I tried the curried cauliflower ones and they were delicious! Only tip I'd say is be brave when you flip them, one fast move and you'll be fine! The quarter pounders although the same size/weight have coconut fat in them that's why they're higher in SPs. Anyone tried them out yet? x

Peace Pops!

Summers coming, YAY... and whilst we're all still here, we can pretend we're away in our deck chairs in the garden eating ice pops! Ben and his buddy Jerry are all over this... Cookie Dough Peace Pops are the latest addition to their freezer stash! I haven't tried one but it's on my radar!!! I picked up the box in Tesco to check the SPs and it was surprisingly small for 3 ice creams! Anyone tried them yet? Spill! x

Light cream crackers from Jacobs!

Before anyone starts on me, I know the original Jacobs cream crackers are 1SP each but for people watching their sugars, these are a good option if you like a savoury crunchy snack! Spotted in Tesco x

Plant based sausages... Rudd's!

 

Another sausage to add to the mix... plant based meat free sausages from Rudds... You'll get these in Tesco, Dunnes & SuperValu! Ones to try for the summer as hot dogs for sure! Anyone tried them out? I bought the white pudding this week to taste it! x

A new range of Veggie Crisps out in M&S... I've done the SPs per 25g serve but also per 100g bag cause these are the kinda things you can munch through a bag of whilst watching a film! Plus who decided on this whole 'sharing bag' situation anyway?!?! Would be lovely for nibbles in the garden in the summer when the weather makes up it's mind! Notions! Anyone tried them out? x
