Shirley Original 105g

I am attempting justification for eating biscuits whilst maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

I was born into an extended family. My grandmother came over to England in the 1950s, and despite being over qualified and well experienced, the only job offered to her was working in a biscuit factory. Our household had a constant supply of biscuits and to this day, buying, dunking and enjoying biscuits is one of my favourite pass-times.

Whenever, I sit down for a cup of herbal tea I can't resist opening and occasionally finishing a whole packet of biscuits. I know I cannot be the only person guilty of this.

The advantage, of these Jamaican Shirley Biscuits, is that they come in a very small packet and each biscuit is bitesized too.

My good friend is also named Shirley, just like the biscuit. When I sit down for a cup of herbal tea , my good friend Shirley is right beside me. In biscuit form.

I have a little trick that I play when eating these biscuits. I break each one in half and shake out all the crumbs. That way I convince myself I am doing a mini workout rather than just sitting down eating biscuits.

The packaging is foil and therefore, completely recyclable

So all in all what you are getting here isn't just a packet of biscuits, it is the company of a friend, an opportunity to save the planet and an exercise routine. How's that for justification?

They taste delicious too. I am the biscuit eating champion of my family and these ones get my vote.

Nothing can ever replace a biscuit with a cup of tea. Nothing can replace a good friend. To keep the real Shirley on her toes I always tell her about one or two contenders for her job. She says? "No one else would put up with you." I say "What audacity!" I do admire her confidence though.

In case you are wondering about the biscuit factory. My gran left, got a better job, the biscuit factory closed down and they replaced it with an industrial estate. The industrial estate is named after the biscuit factory that used to stand in its place.

Avocado

Once considered exotic, nowadays avocados are all over the place: showing up in recipes for salads, smoothies, sandwiches and dips. When eaten in a salad or as a side dish avocados are treated as a vegetable.

Valuable source of Vitamin E, B6 and Potassium. There is some confusion that leads to concern that this delicious, nutritious produce is fattening. They do contain fat but not the kind of fat that is harmful. The fat found in avocados is monounsaturated fat and it has been suggested that eating foods ,such as avocados, that contain the right kind of fat, lowers cholesterol and may even lower the risk of heart disease and type 2 diabetes.

Enjoy avocados without the feelings of guilt usually associated with other high fat foods especially chocolate, biscuits and cake each of which contain the wrong kind of fat (saturated fat) and often lead to common health complaints especially when consumed in large quantities. If you are going to include saturated fat in your diet it is probably best to consume butter, coconut oil and palm oil because these fats are usually consumed in far smaller quantities.

This larger, smooth skinned variety is typically eaten with bread, especially hard dough bread or with bulla a round basic firm sweet cake, When eaten with bread and bulla avocados function as cheese or butter.

Ripe Plantain

Of all the flavours in the Caribbean and other tropical places the plantain is the one food that is universally adored.

Around the world plantains are boiled, roasted or most commonly fried. Find a way to add one to the BBQ and you will not be disappointed. Fried sweet plantains are eaten on the side with dishes like stew peas and rice or ackee and saltfish.

The trick to making delicious fried plantain is to know which ones to choose. It’s all about how the skin looks; choose from firmer green plantain, to one with a sturdy yellowish tone, or go for one that looks more beaten up for a sweeter taste.

Plantain can be added to your diet as a replacement for the common potato. Not only are they far more delicious they are nutritionally more superior. They contain a richer source of fibre as well as vitamin A, C and B6, magnesium and potassium.

Thyme - 50g

Thyme has many uses but is best known for being a corner stone in tropical cooking. No Caribbean household's shopping list would be complete without this item.

Fresh thyme (storks and all) is used as an ingredient to enhance the flavour of your favourite meat, fish, vegetarian or vegan dish. When teamed with hot peppers (scotch bonnet), spring onion, ginger and a good quality garlic you have the base for great Caribbean cooking.

Just add authentic seasonings such as Portland Spices and Jamaica Valley high quality pre mixed seasonings. Both are monosodium glutamate (MSG) FREE, and make food taste tropical and delicious. I will be surprised if you need to add anything else to your pot. But if you do here is some motherly advice. Add a little sprinkling of black pepper and a whole heap of LOVE.

In addition to its versatile use in cooking, thyme is said to have added benefits. If coping with chest and breathing issues use fresh thyme made into a tea using hot not boiling water.

Thyme records a high level of vitamin C and is a natural anti oxidant.

Another interesting fact about thyme, dates back thousands of years. Ancient Egyptians used thyme to embalm and preserve Pharaohs!
