For the past two weeks I’ve been busy testing out the Foodsaver Fresh. A vacuum sealing system designed to help your food last longer.
A bit of background…
What is the Foodsaver Fresh
The Foodsaver Fresh is a vacuum sealing machine designed to keep your food fresh up to two times longer than conventional storage systems such a zip seal bags, tin foil, cling film or containers. It’s the number one vacuum sealing system in the US and is now launching in the UK…
Judging from all the pumpkin recipes that are popping up in my Facebook feed over the past couple of weeks, it seems that despite the fact we’re slap bang in the middle of the summer holidays people are already starting to look forward to autumn.
Autumn with kids is a lot of fun, with cozy hot chocolates topped with mini marshmallows and kicking the fallen leaves with our boots on. However, it also means a change in the weather and we get a lot less sunshine (what little we had in North Wales!).
Until recently I hadn’t realised what an important part sunshine plays in our health. Vitamin D, which is essential for having healthy bones, teeth and muscles, is made from the reaction of sunlight on our skin. As there’s plenty of sunshine in the summer this is usually enough to give us what we need. However, Autumn and Winter are a different matter and from October to March it’s important to supplement your Vitamin D to stay healthy.

Last Friday I was invited as part of a group of food bloggers to visit the Iceland Kitchen at their head office near Chester. The purpose of the visit was to have a tour of their new test kitchens (over which I now have serious kitchen and photography studio envy!), to taste some of their Christmas treats (including a Christmas turkey cooked on a BBQ) and to bust some of the myths that exist about frozen food…
