    You need to try the Enriched Eggs from Waitrose

    Published by Finn Hayden If there's one place to head to for a great selection of eggs, it's got to be Waitrose. Over the years we've spotted everything from quails eggs to blue eggs in our local Waitrose, and even the standard free range eggs from Waitrose are described as being from 'blacktail hens'. Very fancy. But it's the Enriched Eggs from the Waitrose egg section that we've been loving recently. Not only are these eggs super tasty, but they're also packed with extra goodness. And it's not like the extra goodness has been injected into the eggs or anything like that - the reason these eggs are so packed…

    Don’t be fooled by the lab coats and test tubes – the rise of Andrew Huberman was driven by men who want to feel more masculine

    Andrew Huberman, a Stanford University scientist, is currently being "cancelled". An NY Mag article was published last week which outlined how Huberman skillfully managed to maintain relationships with 6 women at the same time without any of them knowing. First of all, let me get something straight - as far as I can tell, Huberman has done nothing illegal here, and some of the reactions I've seen to what he's been up to have seemed a tad overblown to me. I think that he should be allowed to continue to publish his podcasts and his YouTube videos, and people should be free to continue to listen to him. And likewise,…

    A quack snack? You can now buy DUCK jerky in Marks & Spencer

    I was browsing the snack aisle of my local M&S today (looking for reduced Percy Pigs, a favourite hobby of mine. Once I found bags selling for 50p and I bought about 15 of them), when something stopped me in my quacks (sorry, tracks).   It was a bag of duck jerky, something I've never seen before anywhere else. I have to say, my first thought was - eww. I'm not a huge fan of duck and something about eating those cute little guys I sometimes feed at the pond makes me feel a bit ill. But once I thought about it for a bit, I realised that I'll quite…

    Freezing jam doughnuts from the supermarket – an experiment gone right

    Published by Finn Hayden When I walk into a supermarket and see the reduced section, I have no shame in saying that my eyes light up a little bit. It's my chance to grab a bargain, and I love it. Often, when I see nice bread in the reduced section that has a best before date of the day I've found it, I'll buy the bread then take it home and stick it in the freezer. I can do this with bread but can't really do it with most other things that I might find in the reduced section, such as sandwiches. One thing I seem to find reduced a…

    The 12 best non-alcoholic beers that we’ve bought & tried

    Published by Finn Hayden Lockdown was a shock for many people, and it's no wonder that alcohol consumption skyrocketed during this period. I know this too well myself - the first week of lockdown was basically a non-stop bender for me. I was drinking every day, and because I was stressed and on my own, I had no reason or desire to stay sober. Non-alcoholic beer has been really useful for me as I've cut down my alcohol consumption over the past few years. Alcohol free beer has exploded in popularity in recent years, as people become more health-conscious and companies get better at making great-tasting alcohol-free beer. In the…

    6 of the best tinned tomatoes you can buy in the UK

    Published by Finn Hayden Tomatoes are the base of so many dishes - from curries to pasta sauces, most people keep a few tins of chopped tomatoes in the cupboard because they're so often required in recipes. But we'd also say that despite many dishes requiring tinned tomatoes, most people don't give much thought to the type of tinned tomatoes that they use in their recipes. We think this is probably because people assume that all chopped tomatoes are the same, but having tried a number of tinned chopped tomatoes, we can safely say that this definitely isn't the case. We wanted to round up the best tinned tomatoes that…

    Published by Finn Hayden We think sardines are really underrated, especially given how healthy they are. Just like most fish, sardines are a great source of protein and vitamins. Plus, they taste pretty excellent in our opinion. Getting fresh sardines can be quite hard, but it's usually pretty easy to find tinned sardines.
