Protein is good for you after all

Sometimes gastronomic adventures are good. Sometimes they are bad.

This country has an interesting fascination with protein. So many adverts have “eat this snack it has Xg of protein in it

I admit I was a little sceptical, but thought I’d treat it like Ready Brek and give it a go.

It’s like semolina pudding.

I love semolina pudding!!!!

Basically, this is my perfect hot breakfast food and I’m thrilled.

For once, a positive change!

I’m still bitter about bacon 😫😂🤣
