THE PERFECT MULLED WINE RECIPE

Break The Loop At Home The perfect Mulled Wine Recipe

What with temperatures being below freezing, our recent snow day(s) and Christmas being less than two weeks away (please tell me I’m not the only one who hasn’t even started Christmas shopping!?) I’m officially feeling festive! Despite it being midweek and, as confessed above, I’m hopelessly behind on being organised, I’ve decided that this evening is the perfect time to whip up a literal vat of mulled wine, light the fire and hunker down at home with Christmas movies galore. Adulting schmadulting. If you feel like saying ‘F**k it, it’s Christmas!’ and doing the same, this recipe is super easy and you…

Koliba Ribarska Istria Croatia

BREAKTHELOOP X SPEEDO //S2 EP6

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

HOMEMADE FISH PIE I think the very first time I made this I followed one of Jamie Oliver’s recipes, since then I have made this probably more than 50 times and it has adapted and changed over the years. It’s one of my favourite recipes when I want something hearty, filling and full of goodness but also something that’s not too heavy on the stomach. In my opinion it is the perfect athlete fuel / refuel thanks to the combination of protein, carbohydrate & fat, along with all of the vitamins from the fresh veggies. This definitely isn’t the stodgy,…
