  1. Thanks

    As Ladyshanny confirmed, these are purely butternut squash cut into different shapes but saves a few minutes for the prep of a squash, which can be time consuming if you don't have a sharp knife!  Plus, would appeal to kids if you wanted to introduce them to Whole30 or stop having to cook separate sides.

    No, these are alright, it's just butternut squash cut in a crinkle form. It is literally nothing but butternut squash, raw, ready to roast. These are fine.

    I think that you can be pretty flexible, I live in deepest Cumbria and I suspect my nearest Spaghetti Squash is London!  Butternut is fine as a substitute. If you want fancy buy a spiralizer and make butternut noodle and things like courgetti with it. Quite frankly, life is too short to worry.. I just make cubes and eat them with what ever Im eating. 
    Meat is expensive.... I must say that Americans have it easy, with the price of things over there. Here I'm not prepared to spend too much on meat. I but a bit of grass fed on line from Green Pastures... Its not organic but they just dont want to have to pass the prices of an organic certificate on to customers. Its the best meat Ive come across. I "bulk" it out with local butchers meat as you can ask him where it came from. Round here its probably the field behind the house. 
    In a city... get to know a local butcher and you'll get better deal than the supermarket. Don't think that it is practical with meat price being £20 a kilo to buy organic grass fed here. Any lamb is grass fed! beef here too if you ask your butcher for  it.
    above all don't stress about having the right things in the house... there's always Aberdeen angus, good old fashioned lamb,rope grown mussels, prawns, scallops,cabbage, carrots,neeps and tatties! Why buy from half way round the world when Scotland produces magnificent food of its own?

    I've substituted Rooibos for tea, can't remember the make, and also got some chai tea bags too, I'll check the make when I'm back as they're compliant.
    We get an A&C fruit and veg box, I'm thinking of changing it to just veg, and maybe more, as we've suddenly started using it all up with a few days to go, and having to buy more veg in Sainsbury.  We always used to have leftover veg each week, and never sure what to do with it.

    I so agree with you. I gave up my Yorkshire gold altogether as I couldn't stand it with almond milk. I never thought it would last but I have actually stopped missing it now. I drink peppermint blends mostly, or plain peppermint. I usually have at least 3 different teas in the cupboard. Pukka do a night time blend which is nice.

    British problem. I enjoy my tea..that's Yorkshire Tea. With milk. Other milk substitutes are just Wrong in tea.
    Hate coffee, dislike fruit teas. They are insipid and overpriced, I'd rather drink water.
    So what do other people drink? Oh lemon in black tea is OK once in a while, but will rot the enamel on your teeth if drunk by the gallon as I do my tea.
    Ideas, please.
