Lunch with Leerdammer Light

A new study carried out by Leerdammer Light found that unsurprisingly the traditional lunch break is on the decline with us Brits working an 19.4 extra days as a result of not taking their full breaks, whilst a further 7% claiming they don’t take lunch breaks at all. which I can really identify with as I tend to grab small snacks rather then indulging in a proper lunch.

The lack of the lunch hour is taking its toll on the nation’s productivity and well being at work, with 22 percent of people surveyed admitting they are less efficient when not taking a lunch break.
With this in mind, Leerdammer Light wants to shake things up by offering tips and advice on how to get the most out of your lunch break that go beyond just making yourself a healthy meal. Leeddameer Light has teamed up with Karen Meager a leading workplace expert and has put together some simple tips that can help us get the best out of lunch breaks which will not only fill your tummy but will stimulate your mind body and spirit to enable a productive day.

Lunch Time Tips

Relax-Eating your lunch at your desk is unhealthily, our bodies are not programmed to digest food well under stress,do its important to have lunch when relaxed, Take a few deep breathes before you start eating and eat slowly and chew your food well.

Walk the walk - Taking a 15 minute walk around lunchtime to avoid the need for the gym workout later, plus its a great way to get your brain buzzing. Get the most out of your lunchtime by asking yourself "How can I.....,question yourself before you set out, asking questions followed by exercise encourages the mind creativity and will hep you come up with new answers.

Tidy desk, tidy mind - use some of your break time to get organise. Having a clear out has an big impact on how we feel in our mind, if there is less clutter in our peripheral vision, we are more focused and energised and less mentally distracted.

So with these amazing Tips some tasty lunchtime recipes from Leerdammer I'm hoping to change some of my lunch time habits this 2015. I recently found out that walking for only 15 minutes per day I can burn more then 40 calories, also what is great about Leerdammer Light is that is contains 50% less fat then cheddar cheese which makes it perfect for lunch as part of a healthy balanced diet. Here is one of my favorite Leerdammer Light recipes.

Leerdammer Light Pesto Rocket Baguette

Serves: 1
1. Slice the baguette in half length ways 
2. Spread the pesto on the bottom half 
3. Add a few rocket leaves and two slices of Leerdammer Light and some sliced tomatoes
4. Serve with tomatoes and grated carrot

This Leerdammer baguette was absolutely delicious and was perfect for lunch, I really enjoyed Leerdammer cheese is is very light in texture and has a delicious nutty taste, I'm really looking forward to a more productive and tasty lunch break.

We were super excited to see the first UK gala screening of Disney's Big Hero 6, From the team who brought us Frozen and Wreck-it Ralph comes Big Hero 6. Big Hero 6 is directed by Don Hall and Chris Williams and produced by Roy Conli.

The animation is set in the stunning city San Fransokyo, where Hiro a clever kid who has a love for robotics spends his time making cash in the underground robot fighting scene, When Hiro latest antics almost land him in trouble, Tasdashi (Hiro's older brother) attempts to inspire Hiro by taking him on a college visit, This is where Hiro has his first encounter with Tadashis cool inflatable robot Baymax a Healthcare Companion.
Feeling inspired and encouraged by Tasdashis and his cool friends adrenaline junkie Go Go Tamago, Neatnik Wasabi, chemistry whiz Honey Lemon and fanboy Fred. Hiro puts himself to the test to create an invention to secure his place at San Fransokyo institute. But things take a devastating turn for the worse and Baymax soon becomes a very much needed companion, as Hiro finds himself caught up in a dangerous situation. Baymax and Hiro's friends join forces and set to uncover the dark mystery.

Big Hero 6 is an action packed movie, with amazing moments of comedy that you will remember long after the movie has finished, be prepared to be moved by the emotional yet gripping storyline, An unforgettable movie which you will want to see again. We really loved every minute of this movie we were in tears or laughter, the boys thought the movie was absolutely awesome and loved Baymax, We defiantly cannot wait to watch it again.

House of Fraser - Children's Clothing Review

I'm constantly buying clothes for my two growing boys and it's always important that's I have good quality clothing that lasts well. I was pleasantly surprised at the varied range of children's clothing that House of Fraser stocks, It has an array of brands at affordable prices for children of all ages in store and online. As an online shopper it was very simple to browse at the entire range in the comfort of my own home, and with my budget in mind I could refine my search and seek out my desired price range.

It was great to see so many affordable items available that I really liked, and after alot of deliberating we opted for these two Timberland Boys  long sleeve Jersey T-Shirts one in Navy and Blue at only £17 they were a bargain, 

So not only were we getting a well known name brand, but the quality of the tops is amazing the Jersey T-shirt is soft to the touch yet has a medium weight feel, The boys absolutely love these tops and they look amazing on.We are very impressed with House Of Fraser's children's clothing range. I will defiantly be shopping with them in the very near future. If you would like to see more on these top and House of Fraser's clothing range check out House Of Fraser/KidsClothing.

We were given the tops to review, all thoughts are honest and that of our own.
