4 Fit Foodie Finds From The 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.

Sweet Potato Toast | Trialling The Foodie Trends

Wow. OK, yes, that was a very long, very much unplanned hiatus. And yes, I fully intend to write a post detailing exactly what I’ve been up to these past four months (eek) as there’s been quite a lot going on, but today I tried out something I saw on the internet and for the first time in a long time I thought to myself, “I want to blog about this”. So, here we are.

Foodie trends come and go – many are ridiculous, require ingredients only sourceable from the ancient Maya (or perhaps Ocado), or just become too over-hyped, too quickly, for me to bother trying. However, I’m really trying to broaden my palate for healthy foods, so I’ve decided to begin a series where I try out the latest foodie trends.

Today’s is so simple that I can’t believe I didn’t think of it myself – sweet potato toast! Read on to see what I thought and whether you should give it a go yourself. View Post
