3 Day Juice Cleanse – Day One

Day One

8.00am – The Boy has charged off to Freshii in an excited whir to pick up our juices.

8.01am – Decide to hide in the shower for a bit longer.

8.15am – He is back and I’m getting nagged to come and have breakfast.

8.16am – I hate this week already.

8.20am – My drinking days have finally lead to something useful.  This nasty poopy looking juice is much more palatable if taken like a shot. Continue reading

Walden Farms vs Choc Shot

This is a very short post because there is no debate in my mind….

Walden Farms Chocolate Syrup kicks Sweet Freedom’s Choc Shot ass.  It isn’t as watery and it has a better and less synthetic chocolate taste.

You can see I love them by the fact they are emptying, and the Choc Shot isn’t!

I can’t compare any other flavours because this is the Continue reading

Ladies Night at Nezzas!

It’s been quite a while since I went to Nezesaussi Grill at the Manzil Hotel, Downtown.  At least 6 months, I’m sure.  Good news is that it’s still great!  Just thought I would let you know!!

(P.S.  Whilst googling how to spell this venue’s name, I have discovered there is one now in the Marina too.  I wonder if they have the same offers?  I will leave that for you to work out because the marina is faaaaaaar!)

I’ve got to work out how to take better menu pictures! Also, there is steak/salmon too.


The Tuesday Ladies Night offer still remains the same.   Continue reading

Eat The World!

img_7423Sounds like a great idea to me!  Sadly “the World” consisted only of Singapore, the UAE, the UK and the US.  That was a great start though, unlike the start of this post which I think is weak.

What am I banging on about, I hear you wonder?  Well, part of this year’s Dubai Food Festival was a street food market called Eat The World!  It was held in Burj Park (Downtown) and the idea was that you would wonder about and eat a bunch of stuff from a host of different places.

Let me get the negative out of the way first… Continue reading

Claw BBQ Crabshack & Grill, Dubai

I would like to give a shout out to Claw in Souk Al Bahar, which is consistently good.  So few places are anymore. From the food to the team; there is no bad here as far as I can tell.

I had a bit of a rubbish day so to cheer me up The Boy took me to lunch.  He knows that Claw will always work instantly.  They have pork ribs.  I am so easy to please.

This time though I decided to be different.  Check me being all brave and darey!! Continue reading

Lesson Sadly Learnt

If you see a new restaurant or a cafe that looks amaze, and you really want to try it, do. As soon as possible. Don’t wait a few years to get around to it. Because when you do it might completely suck and then you’ve wasted a few years waiting for the right time to treat yourself.

Yes, this really can happen. Today proved that completely.

I have been walking past Alison Nelson’s Chocolate Bar for the last few years.  Self preservation has always kept me as far away from it as possible.  I mean, a whole cafe dedicated to chocolate?!  Amaze and sooooo dangerous. Continue reading

Avoca-do or don’t?

According to Slimming World rules, avocados have syns.  10 syns per 100g to be precise.  It seems like a lot.

The avocado pear is one of the most nutrient packed fruits around.  It has vitamins B, C, E and K for a start.  It also has a bunch of other things that I can’t remember and probably couldn’t pronounce anyway.   Continue reading
