Aldi's Kitchen Utensils : Review...

Earlier this week I got sent some lovely bits for baking and serving food to try out and review. These are all from Aldi's Home baking Specialbuy's range, which will be in-store from the 6th March.

I always love to try out new goodies for the kitchen, especially if it involves baking. As usual, I got carried away with photo's, so I still have some fun things left to try out. I thought I would break the post into 2 and share how I have been using them all.

Honeyed Turkey and Avocado Salad with a Yoghurt Mint Dressing ...

A healthy, tasty salad, cram-packed with superfoods!

Watercress is both full of vitamin C and abundant in minerals including folate, iron, zinc, magnesium, calcium and potassium.

It has been dubbed the food to keep you looking young!

Avocados are brimming with essential nutrients, including potassium, B-vitamins and folic acid. They also act as a so-called nutrient booster; so when eaten with other foods, avocados enable the body to better absorb cancer-fighting nutrients!

Finally honey acts as an antioxidant, a substance that can prevent the effects of free radicals!

What’s not to like about this salad?

Prep time: 10 minutes

Cooking time: 10-15 minutes

Serves: 2

The Laughing Cow Cheese And Chicken Wraps..

To help me kick-start my New Years healthier eating plan, The Laughing Cow Extra Light sent me some yummy 2% fat cheese triangles and some other healthy ingredients to help get me started.

We have been enjoying these yummy cheese triangles on crackers instead of bread for lunch, in salads as sides on our dinner and as a little extra for the children's lunch boxes. 

I have also added then into a chicken wrap in exchange for mayonnaise.

Superfast Superfood Salad...

The flavour combinations in this salad work really well and the colours shout health and vitality. The vitamin C from the blackberries will increase the amount of iron absorbed from the spinach; spinach regularly appears on the lists of super foods and has high levels of calcium, iron, magnesium and manganese.

Iron is an important part of haemoglobin, the substance in our red blood cells that transports oxygen around our bodies.

Walnuts are a great source of omega 3 oils and feta cheese is lower in fat than cheddar. The fat from the cheese and olive oil in the dressing help the absorption of fat soluble vitamins from the spinach.Perfect for eating on its own or served with flaked smoked mackerel for a delicious lunch or supper.

This is a good meal to have on a day when you are not training as it will help keep you full without eating a lot of carbs.

Preparation time: 5 minutes

  • 200g fresh blackberries 
  • 150g-250g fresh spinach leaves 
  • 50g feta cheese 
  • 20g walnuts 
  • 20ml raspberry vinegar 
  • 10ml olive oil 

  1. Lay the spinach leaves on a plate or bowl. 
  2. Arrange the blackberries, crumbled feta cheese and walnut pieces on top of the spinach. 
  3. Mix the raspberry vinegar and oil in a bowl and drizzle on top of the salad.
