I'm just going to throw it out there, I love food. If anyone knows me, I am like the walking Tripadvisor of Newcastle, I can tell you which restaurant is good for what and can name pretty much all of the cafes. Is that a good thing? I think so. For most of my time in Newcastle, I have been fighting a love of eating out and a feeling that I have to loose weight. BUT it's 2018 and it is the year that I am not going to beat myself up or feel bad for eating calorific foods every now and then. I mean i'm not saying I'm going to go all out and completely pig out every day, cause that really isn't the case. But this is the year that I focus on just enjoying myself, nourishing my body for the most but treating myself when I want too, life is too god damn short to not eat the piece of cake or the chocolate, AM I RIGHT?!
Last week I visited The Great British Cupcakery with the darling Katie Meehan for a catch up. For those of you who don't know, the Great British Cupcakery is situated on the quayside in Newcastle.
We went to sample the new menu which if you haven't seen on instagram is completely full of the most chocolatey delicious goodness. Honestly, trying to pick something to have was a huge struggle as everything looked so good! I chose the 'Bubble Waffle' which was stuffed full of chocolate icecream, nutella, melted chocolate and a variety of delicious cereals AND mikado sticks on the top. I mean COME ON, how incredibly glutenous... and not one bit of guilt.
Are you embracing the year of enjoying yourself like me?
