To say I have been eyeing this granola up for a while would be an understatement. Breakfast by Bella is one of those foodie brands that I unknowingly stumbled across on Instagram and have been hooked on trying some ever since. You can buy online however thankfully patience was in my favour as they were at a local farmers market this month and needless to say I hot footed it down there.  In three simple flavours  – Peanut Butter Me Up, Nutty Nosh and Cacoa Crazy they are all free from refined sugar, are gluten free and contain organic ingredients…

I could not believe my peepers when I spotted Grocery Gems tweet about Dorset Cereals Gingerbread Porridge, how did I not know this existed?! I suppose the saving grace is I do now and I have it in my possession.  I do love gingerbread, surprising given I don’t exactly like ginger, anyway when I saw this I must confess I contemplated an Ocado shop I was that desperate to try it.
