Snacks. Healthy Beetroot Crisps

I am quite the snacker. I sometimes just have a whole load of snacks for dinner. I know – it’s not great, but I just love picking at things! 

I attempt making good snacking choices, like nuts and seeds, veggies or fruit. Recently I got into bread with virgin olive oil, which is not great. What I’m also not too proud of is my never-ending love of peanut butter… Sometimes I watch TV with a new jar of peanut butter and suddenly I realise that it’s already only half-full... Oops! I do only buy 100% peanut butter to avoid the additives and naughty oils. The brands I like in the UK are NutShot (my absolute favourite), Biona and Peanut Butter and Co. 

However, my main snacking problem is that when I’m in the mood for a snack, there are usually not many options around! And I usually need it ‘n o w’. Which leaves me with shop-bought treats, which are not always the best – I like to know what exactly goes into my food and how is it cooked. 

But recently I discovered a snack that is easy to make and I actually really enjoy making it. Beetroot crisps!

Salty water and cheese in Whitstable

Last weekend Hugo and I went to Whitstable to participate in a sailing race. It was so beautiful - I was willing to keep my heavily-salt-treated eyes open as much as I could.

Home is Where The Heart is

I went home a week and a bit ago.  For those who don’t know, my home is Lithuania. And it is definitely where my heart is.
