Haighton Manor.

March 6, 2017

 

For Papa's birthday, the fam clan took a trip to Haighton Manor!

What a spectacular place - WOW the outside is like a castle & the inside is beautifully done.

I did check the menu before to illuminate stress. With my migraines being bad & tiredness I knew any menu difficulties would tip me over the edge! 

Luckily they had sweet potatoe fries & sorbet!! 

Which is heaven to me when eating out! Nobody seems to do the two of these. 

So I order a side salad to start ( thinking it would be a small, boring salad- however I was so wrong! I got the biggest bowl ( a Sophie sided salad ) which I was happy about! And the ginger chuntney I pinched off Mama's plate was super yummy.

I then had sweet potatoe fries & chunky chips ( just to switch it up a little !! ). I also ordered veg not buttered just steamed. Now I did only get kale and leafy greens which made me think all their veggies were already prepped in butter so therefore I couldn't have any proper veg.

However this is the only area they really fell down on.

Then to finish - despite being SO full, I had, had my eye on the coconut sorbet throughout the whole meal.

I first had coconut sobert in a French Cafe in Vegas and I recreated it in my United Tastes Of America book. 

Not many places in England seem to serve it so to find it was rare!! So full or not I had to grasp this opportunity and I am so pleased I did. It was the best dish of the meal!

So I thank you Haighton Manor for you great service, DELICIOUS food and gorgeous atmosphere.

And of course thank you to the fam clan for another lovely night ! 

Finally happy birthday Papa for tomorrow! 

And if you get the opportunity please try Haighton Manor. 

Love and peace xoxo

COOKING TIPS

#1
Feeling sluggish and rubbish when you have woken up? Get boosting up on bananas the more the better - they will help settle your stomach, boosting digestion, they are a mood enhancer, they will give you the energy you need and keep you full. Buy my book for banana receipe ideas.
 
#2
Wake up every morning and ATLEAST have one glass of lemon water before doing anything else! Ideally try to drink a litre of water. The lemon wakes up your digestive system ready for the day and has great cleansing properties.
 
#3
Check your dairy and meat intake - dairy can sit in your system for up to seven days unable to digest properly. Meaning other foods also get neglected and nurtients aren't absorbed properly and you feel extremely bloated. Go and smell your food bin, your stomach will be in that state. Rotting foods in your belly - hmm nice.
 
#4
DO NOT FEAR CARBS - THEY ARE NOT THE ENEMY! CARB UP!!
Bananas, Rice, Potatoes, Leafy Greens, Corn, Beans, Lentils etc PACK THEM IN GO MAD.
 
#5
NEVER COUNT CALORIES - NEVER RESTRICT!! These restriction 'starvation' diets who tell you to only eat 500 calories a day then have a treat day - where you binge out and eat WAY too much, is simply messing up your metabolism and on your binge days yours body stores all the fat meaning you gain weight because it knows it is going to go back into starvation mode and needs to hold onto every little thing it can. HELLO WEIGHT GAIN. 

Life is too short not to live it to the full, making yourself happy.
