Chocolate Nicecream for breakfast

Chocolate Nicecream for breakfast

What shall I have for breakfast this morning? Chocolate Nicecream!

This is what I was thinking about whilst tramping across an invisible bridle path courtesy of a field being freshly ploughed in the West Sussex countryside this morning. “Briskly” walking a dastardly dog with 2 inch mud soles and counting, to wear me him out.

So yes, guilt free, gluten free, dairy free, low fat ‘naughtiness’ in under 5 minutes. And why is it called nicecream? Well because it’s icecream made from ‘nanas innit.

The Tunagasm

The Tunagasm by Sarah Cairncross
No word of a lie, this little recipe I got off Instagram via @fitgirl4me caused what can only be described as The Tunagasm in my mouth. Yes, it deserves capitalisation.

I have a load of recipes I think ‘ooh, I must try that’ and largely that is all I’ve been doing… whilst on my way to the kitchen to shove a slice of thickly buttered toast into my gob. Then feeling bad about it about half an hour later.
