Ketchup, Ale & Cages
At present I am on the second day of my week long food diary to help studies run by the European Prospective Investigation of Cancer, it is quite interesting recording everything that you eat and drink over a 7 day period and is a great way to evaluate your diet. The diary has reminded me to share with you a new found ketchup that is the nicest ketchups I have ever tasted: Tiptree Tomato Sauce is 75% tomatoes and has no artificial ingredients, it is packed full of the tomatoes active ingredient lycopene, lycopene is said to be effective in helping combat cancer. Regardless of the Tiptree sauces health benefits it tastes gorgeous.
On a less healthy subject I am pleased to be of to the Camra real ale festival this coming Saturday with the lovely Gordon Sparks, we are both looking forward to seeing Chas and Dave performing live. If you are not familiar with the infamous Chas and Dave then where have you been! Here is a link to a video of them performing 'Rabbit'.
Great news from my husbands gym as the new cage arrived today, it is Devon's first cage! The cage is part of a major expansion for Saints gym. Sid, Christi and various helpers have been working hard to refurbish the new unit and things are really starting to take shape, more news to follow on the open day that will be held on the 26th July.
Today is quite a relaxed day for me, Jo is dealing with the admin so I can catch up on a few other things. Hopefully I can sneak in an hours pole practice at 5pm today with Jo. Lastly Good Luck to Nixi who is off to London to do her Studio instructor course with the YMCA. If you are going to do one of these courses the YMCA are the best company to use as they have the highest standards.
Off to do a bit more work then home via raffles!
