Loves & Hates – May

LOVES

Dara & Ed’s Road to Mandalay – Dara O’Briain and Ed Byrne venture out on another road trip together – this time to Mandalay (having already travelled down the Pan-American Highway by car on Dara and Ed’s Great Big Adventure).  We see what they get up to on their travels from Kuala Lumpur to Mandalay 3,500 miles away.  I’m not normally one for travel programmes, but the balance between the light-hearted banter and the seriousness of a travel programme really showed through.  I think it’s still available on i-Player.

Podcasts I’ve been listening to

I thought I’d share with you the podcasts that I’m listening to at the moment.

They are, in no particular order:-

The Danny Baker Show – Danny Baker and Lou Pepper present this two hour extravaganza live on a Saturday morning (9am – 11am) on Radio 5 Live.  The format each week is mostly the same in that Danny will tweet a selection of topics for listeners to peruse before he leaves for the studio.  The person with the most obscure and/or funny story will share it on air.  There is a guest which Danny will chat in-depth to and then there is the Sausage Sandwich Game.  Ahh the Sausage Sandwich Game – a hilarious game in which two callers (playing for any team they support) score goals against each other by answering trivia questions about the celebrity that week, including whether said celebrity has red sauce, brown sauce or no sauce at all on their sausage sandwich.  My description doesn’t do it justice – you really have to listen to the show to get the full effect.

REVIEW: James Wong – How To Eat Better

Whilst browsing for healthy eating books on Amazon, I came across James Wong – How To Eat Better – How to Shop, Store & Cook to Make Any Food a Superfood and after reading the reviews, I decided to buy it.

I’m quite a fussy eater and do not like a lot of the foods that are meant to be good for you which means most recipe books are useless, so I was looking for a book that told me which foods I should be eating and how best to eat them.  This book does that.
