In a Bag

Arlington's Fruit Tapioca

Munch Munch

Now all I’ve done is scooped it outta the punnet but the clever chaps at Arlington’s have created a tasty gluten free snack from tapioca pearls, coconut cream and fruit juice. It’s quite a small container so I like to savour it over two sessions and I’ve found it stocked in my local IGA in Newtown and Alexandria but their site lists other locations along with markets. Unfortunately for some it’s only available in Sydney and Melbourne. My favourites flavours are Raspberry (pictured) and Passionfruit. They actually have a market stall at the Orange Grove Organic Farmers Market in Lillyfield, Sydney. Here you can sample their whole range and purchase some to take home. And if you do visit stop by one of the several Gluten Free Bakery stands and pick up a roll and have the famous Bowen’s Bacon and Egg Roll made up. It’s easy to find, there is always a queue and for good reason.


Madame Flavour Earl Grey Tea

Munch Munch

I absolutely adore a good cup of tea, one of life’s very simple pleasures, and I believe that the team responsible for creating Madame Flavour Tea have developed one of the finest Earl’s Grey cuppas ever. As soon as you open the foil packaging the aroma smacks you right between your eyes (your nose). Try them for yourself.



Trident Asian Chicken Rice Noodle Soup


The perfect healthy and very inexpensive lunch that you can make at work. I have made this plenty of times and I always receive compliments from strangers in the building. I reckon each bowl is only around $3.00 a pop. So if you have a microwave at work, invest in an inexpensive microwave/steamer bowl or if you work from home you can do this on the stove.


Serves 1

  • 1 packet Trident Chicken Noodle Soup (Around 90 cents a packet)
  • 1/3 head broccoli
  • 1/2 small tin of Champignons or 2 large button mushrooms

Add your soup sachets, the rice chip noodles and vegies to the microwave bowl, cover with water and cook in your microwave for approximately four minutes. Stir once to make sure rice noodle chips separate. That’s it. All up it probably doesn’t take more than five minutes to make, which leaves you with plenty of munch and relax time on your break.

Other Vegies and things I have added to that work really well are; Asparagus, Bean Sprouts, Bok Choy, Egg white, Sugar Snap Peas and leftover BBQ Chicken. I have also added to boost flavours from time to time; Soy Sauce, Sesame Oil and Chilli Oil (seen in pic).

If you have a fridge at work why not take your vegies in whole and cut them up as you need them or alternatively you can prep them at home and keep them in a ziplock bag, til lunch time.







Did somebody say Cookie? Whisk and Pin Chocolate Mud.

Munch Munch Munch

So I decided to indulge myself tonight with some cookies and milk whilst reading my book. I recommend that everyone on Earth get their mitts on these, they’re that good. My Partner who is not Gluten Intolerant also loves them. But what makes me even more thrilled just now is whilst scouring the Net to find their company logo to accompany this blog, I discovered that their Bakery is in Katoomba, NSW. Which coincidently, is where I had already planned to celebrate my Birthday this weekend. I know one thing for sure I’ll be doing this Saturday…See you soon Cookie Monsters!
