Berry Cherry Flapjacks

Hello! How about we try something new? Let’s talk about food exploration. 

The perfect picnic with the perfect spread. There is nothing I love more than to just sit amongst good company or even by myself with food that hits you home and sets in the nostalgia. I’m talking about BBQ Chicken wings, snacks and smoothie drinks, anything that compliments our English summer. 

This will be easy to assemble and, if you have little helpers, this is a great time to call them in. I’m going to give you a quick and delicious essential for a great outing. Szabina our Nutristrength chef has created this lovely recipe for you to enjoy.
