Organic Baobab Powder: Chocolate Brownie Recipe & Review

Have you heard of Baobab Powder? No? You’re not alone, I hadn’t either.

It’s a “super food” from that originates from Ghana, a pod that grows and when open has white powdery fruit inside (Baobab Powder). Well it turns out this powder is super rich in a whole host of goodness. How did we not already know about this?!

baobab-fruit

It includes:

  • 6 x Antioxidants of Blueberries
  • 6 x Vitamin C of Oranges
  • 6 x Potassium of Bananas
  • 50% of Fibre Per Serving
  • More Magnesium Than Coconut Water
  • Twice As Much Calcium as Milk

So this super food is sold online and across the world by a great company called Panda Vita!

It can be used in drinks, smoothies, baking and cooking, there’s loads of great recipes on their website.

I’ve made a favourite in our house which is Chocolate Brownies! I was going to make them low fat, but decided to keep all the fun and add the healthiness in by adding in some Baobab Powder.

The recipe is below, I have to say this super food is A-MAZ-ING! It tastes so good, it stretches so far, you don’t need to use much and it brings a sweet, yummy, yet subtle flavour, I didn’t think Chocolate Brownies could get any better, but this a new level of goodness.

Tails.com: A review

Tails.com

Dogs are like a part of the family, let’s face it. They are there to cuddle us when we need it, they’ll go out when we want to, they are always happy to see us, there isn’t a better companion than a dog, so why don’t we give them the healthiest and best option for them to eat?

yummymummysblogx-yummymummysblog-%e2%80%a2-instagram-photos-and-videos-google-chrome-22122016-085848

Dogs are one of the most diverse species on the planet, so it makes sense that they need have special needs for their diet, well that’s where Tails.com come in. They cater food individually for each dog and they don’t just categorize by breed, there is a quick and easy 2 minute consultation on their website that checks out everything from your dogs name, to the amount of exercise they do per day to their weight. Then they lay out what your furry pooch needs in percentages. Think about it we go to the doctors and they tell us to have more of “this” or less of “that” based on all our physical attributes and we listen, so why shouldn’t we do that for man’s best friend?

I was sent one month’s worth of food for my Mum’s dog Connie and all I can say is WOW! So it comes in a big deluxe bag with your pets name on! Yep, it said Connie right there on the front and then it had a bunch of leaflets including a menu and a layout of what is included in Connie’s food. It came with a handy cup exactly measured for the amount of food that she should have, the portion sizes are smaller than I had been feeding her, but she was still full! (Trust me you’d know about it if she was still hungry). So it seems we were feeding her more of the mainstream dog food, the Tails.com food was obviously packed full of more nutrition and what she needed, because she seemed happier and satisfied after each meal.

Over the month she tried her food it seemed her coat and appearance improved, she looked much healthier and she performed better when out for a walk, she seemed to have more energy and be more settled at night time. Overall it had a great impact on every aspect of her life.

When you think about it, this makes sense, catering specifically to your dogs needs and it works! It’s obvious it would really because…why wouldn’t it? Plus the evidence is there, we tried it and it did make a noticeable positive difference to Connie.

Why wait? I bet you’re thinking this will be seriously overpriced….nope! It was just over £17 for Connie’s 1 month of food, plus I have a discount code for you to use to get 2 weeks free and just £1 delivery!

The London Sock Exchange Review + 10% Discount

Have you ever thought about how many socks you go through?

Have you ever realised actually how important great socks are?

I mean…think about it! They go on your feet!

You use your feet everyday, so why not treat them?

How about you can get luxury socks sent to you every quarter of the year? Plus you can recycle your old socks in the handy box they come with for no extra charge!

03_TheLondonSockExchange_Family_box-open.jpg

Well look no further….The London Sock Exchange have created this great service for the dapper gentleman, for only £15 per quarter!

 

I was lucky enough to be sent some great socks for my husband to try and we were pleasantly surprised!

Who knew a box of socks could be so exciting!

So they turn up in this cute brown box, wrapped in lovely black tissue paper.

Three pairs of socks in gorgeous designs are carefully folded with their own individual names, not only that but they have an outfit suggestion of the back of the card that each pair comes with.

My husband was extremely happy to come home to these luxury dapper socks after a long day at work on his feet and he loved them! I was a bit jealous so had to try a pair on too and they are so comfy, you can just tell the difference between these socks and regular socks. When you put them on you can really feel the quality, you can feel they are specially designed.

Then of course not to be left out, our eldest son Jack wanted to try them on and be a model!

Did you know that in the UK, we generate 1 million tonnes of clothing and textile every single year. That’s a whole lot of landfill. And the London Sock Exchange want to start setting this right, one sock at a time.

Not one sock that gets sent to be recycled gets wasted. 55% are reused and will make their way to developing countries, where they’ll be distributed to communities in need. The other 45% of the socks they receive are deconstructed before being given a second chance in life as an industrial textile….How great is that?!

They are passionate about recycling and here’s a video on what they do:

Well all your prayers have been answered, say hello to…My Cupcake Toppers

Having a Christmas party? Get some festive toppers printed! Or even better get Christmas pictures printed of your family, friends or even your pets!

They come in a range of standard sizes but you can ask for a specific size, there is also a wide range of toppers you can choose from:

Seasonal, Special Occasions, TV and Film, Charity, Sports, Computer Games & Toys and a few other suggestions too, but don’t forget you can completely personalise your own as well.

What better gift than the gift of cake, with the festive season coming up you could cater to the entire family from Football toppers for Dad to Frozen toppers for little girls, they have them all!

The website is really easy to use!

I chose what toppers I wanted, uploaded the pictures and went through check out within a matter of a few minutes!

I chose a range of cakes to show some great ideas and how great photos and logos come out on the cakes.

I chose a large cake topper for my Niece’s Baby Shower, they had a template design on the website so I just typed in her name and the date of her baby shower and they created it for me! It came as a round template (as I’d chosen) but on a rectangle piece of icing, so I could either cut round for a circle cake (which I did) it could of gone straight onto a rectangular cake, so there are a couple of options.

IMG_6269.JPG

I also got 12 cupcake toppers, they could have all been the same or all different. I chose six images so got two of each.

As you can see my blog logo stands out great, I think this is such a great way for businesses of any type to put their logo out there! I know I’d remember seeing a companies logo more if it was on a cake than just a card!

The photographs of my children are so clear and the kids loved it seeing their faces on the cakes! I thought it could be great for a Christening or a Birthday party!

A break from blogging

So  I’ve had a bit of a break from blogging the last few months. I’ve really missed it and feel there are so many things I have missed recording about my little monkey’s.

To re-cap I have two little boys Jack (2.5 yrs) and Michael (1.5 yrs) and write about all the trials and tribulations of being their mummy. Since I stopped blogging things have changed quite a lot, I am now expect a baby GIRL!

I will talk about my pregnancy more in upcoming posts but I’m still in shock it is a girl!

I just wanted to write a quick post about why I haven’t been blogging for a while, there has been no major reason other than life just getting in the way.

So now I have my 2yr old, 1 yr old, 20 weeks Pregnancy and my wedding in 8 weeks! Safe to say I have plenty to write about…..
