While beer and cider is not an essential item, an ice-cold bottle is a refreshing way to ring in the bank holiday weekend this Easter.Since your original plans have probably been scuppered amid the lockdown we're currently in, it doesn’t mean you can cheer on the weekend, the end of a working day or just for a pick-me-up at a strange time.
Around the country, everyone is showing their appreciation for NHS workers who are working on the frontline during the coronavirus pandemic.Many of us are joining in by clapping for NHS and other key workers at 8pm on Thursdays, a new tradition that will hopefully continue in the coming weeks, while supermarkets are dedicating certain shopping hours to allow key workers who are doing long hours and night shifts, to buy food safely.
A little over three weeks in and we’ve finally reached the baking point of self-isolation. If you haven’t already made banana bread or sourdough, then you’ll definitely know someone that has.If you’re a baking novice though, you may well have been flicking through the posts on Instagram and made it your Bank Holiday mission to feast on cake and G&T;’s in the garden, instead of your now cancelled plans.
Whether you’re pairing a bottle with a nice dinner in the garden after being sat indoors working all day, or over a Zoom call for a catch up with friends, trying times often call for a glass of wine.Wine isn't counted as an essential item – although we all know the relaxing benefits of a glass or two, especially at this time – so we advise instead of making special trips out to buy wine, that you order online.
Amid the panic-buying and stockpiling, getting hold of your weekly food shop is proving to be a struggle, as supermarket delivery slots are booked well in advance.While many national chains have introduced priority shopping hours for the elderly and limited opening times to allow staff to restock bare shelves, now is the time to opt for a food subscription box, that can be delivered straight to your doorstep in time for dinner.

Anyone who has ever struggled to drop off at night will know a relaxing hot drink can be a godsend.It goes without saying that even the best sleepers tend to shun caffeine after a certain time, so decaf options are the name of the game.
December is a time for indulgence, but January… not so much.After all that festive frolicking propped up by wheels of stilton, mince pies and too much Christmas spirit many of us find ourselves craving the opposite come the New Year.
What constitutes “healthy” food is very much a subjective term: no food alone is intrinsically healthy, rather health is achieved through balanced, non-faddy eating that generally incorporates all food groups.But with Christmas behind us – which is undoubtedly the most indulgent time of year when it comes to food – as well as those wonderful cheese courses, tins of chocolates and everything else, we're in search for some greenery back in our life.
