That’s right, we’re looking for all you people who love to blog, we have a very strict description of the type of people we want in each category, and that is, “YOU MUST LOVE FOOD” (more…)
Mary Berry is the first in our new “Celeb” category. If you are a fan of Mary, take a look at our recipe links and great deals on Amazon, and remember, follow us on Twitter and Facebook for up to date news! Watch this space as we publish Marys latest footage and offers….
Mary Berry trained at The Cordon Bleu in Paris and Bath School of Home Economics. In the swinging ’60s she became the cookery editor of Housewife magazine, followed by Ideal Home magazine.
Her first television series Afternoon Plus with Judith Chalmers came out in the early ’70s and was a big hit with a lot of British mothers. Three children later she continued through the ’80s writing books and filming television series for BBC from her home in Buckinghamshire.
She started the ’90s by launching her Aga Workshops, a cookery school at home, with over twelve thousand visitors over sixteen years. In the mid ’90s her daughter Annabel launched Mary Berry’s Salad Dressing.
Since the millenium Mary has continued to do demonstrations, write books and do media work. Most noteably she is a judge on The Great British Bake Off, The Junior Bake Off, Comic Relief Bake off and Sports Relief Bake Off which has taken the country by storm. #maryberryfans
There’s an age old saying here in the UK,
An apple a day keeps the doctor away
Whilst this is perhaps a little ambitious, Apples latest release, The Apple Watch could just be the piece of technology that helps us all out, be it dietary requirements or even general day to day help with health issues.
In this day, health and fitness tech is the new mobile phone, and the demand will be so huge that the next 6 months will be an amazing time for anyone interested.
The release of the Apple Watch and the associated apps, such as Runtastic, and a host of Under Armour apps will make it almost a must wear for the modern fitness geek, such as me, I admit it, I love gadgets, but whats not to love.
I can monitor my calorie intake and expenditure, I can track my steps, my distance, I can check my protein, carbs, hey I can even get apps that tell me when I should be taking medication, and way more apps are coming than ever before, in fact, Apples own Health Kit will become a killer app, it’s not really taken off so far but just watch it come into its own.
We’ll bring you more on what this amazing watch does on Friday, pre-order day.
As a calorie counter, I have often looked at what foods I can and can’t eat for the week ahead, I base my calories on 1560 per day (based on MyFitnessPal’s standard of 2lb off per week. (more…)
