fit food manchester makers market

Scrolling through Instagram one Saturday afternoon, I chanced upon the most incredible photo of half a watermelon, stuffed with juicy chunks of watermelon, berries and grapes. Watermelon is on a list of my very favourite foods ever, so I was super psyched to find out it was actually from the Makers’ Market in Manchester city centre!

Honestly, I thought the Makers’ Market was just people selling homemade badges and scarves, so when I arrived and found all sorts of food I was so happy. I could’ve eaten everything. If you want the best of homemade fare it’s definitely worth the trip – with this being a fitness blog I’ve focused on the slightly healthier options, but you could pick up artisan pies, exquisite chocolate, and craft beers if you wished.

This isn’t an ad or in any way associated with the Makers’ Market… I just really love food and supporting small businesses! Read on to find out my fit foodie finds from the Manchester Makers’ Market and let me know whether I’ve missed anything from the food markets around Manchester.

simple easy protein pancake

Pancakes have experienced a prolonged moment in the fitness and health world for the past couple of years, and with good reason – you can customise them to fit your macros, plus they’re delicious with a variety of toppings. But making good pancakes escaped me for a very long time: mine would be too runny, too thick; too burned, too raw; in some cases just plain bad. I mixed and matched recipes I found on the internet that had ingredients I didn’t already have, thinking that randomly chosen substitutes would work well – this only contributed to the amount of pancake failures I suffered with.

It took me years to make my very first half-decent pancake, but now I’ve chanced upon a recipe that is pretty much fool-proof, works every time, and has decent macros whether you share with someone or eat them all. These are also made from ingredients you should already have in your cupboard, meaning no mixing and matching required!
