OptiBac - For a Flat Stomach

Optibac For a flat stomach -  £8.69

I've been hearing some wonderful reviews about OptiBac probiotics recently. Naturally I had to have a nose at their website and see what all the fuss was about, which resulted in me buying my first packet.
I opted for the For a flat stomach product, which involves taking one sachet at breakfast for just one week. 

Taking the probiotics couldn't be easier. They come in individual packets containing the probiotic in a powder form. You simply pour this into your glass of water with breakfast, give it a good stir and hey presto you're done. The best thing is that there is zero taste to the powder, I was really concerned it would be an Alka-Seltzer type taste so that got bonus points from me.

I started to notice a difference about 3 days into the course. I don't suffer from any kind of severe bloating but after a few days my stomach was looking and feeling so much better.

My previous judgement of these good bacteria were based on a bunch of z-list 'celebrities' talking about how much a certain yoghurt has changed their lives. This has completely changed after discovering OptiBac, especially reading how it has genuinely helped so many people. 

If you suffer from any kind of bloating, eczema, acne or similar I'd definitely say it's worth a shot. It's also highly recommended for women during that dreaded time of the month, so definitely worth checking out! 

They're also recommended for those people who live a busy/stressful lifestyle or bad diet. Therefore I'm definitely thinking of stocking up on the Daily Wellbeing version before I head back to my final year of University in September!

Baking: Scones

I am pretty sure one of the best things ever is a cup of tea (milk with 2 sugars) accompanied by a fruit scone. 
I quickly whipped some up the other day, so thought I'd share it with you.

So to begin you will need:
225g Self Raising Flour
50g Unsalted Butter
1 Egg
25g Caster Sugar
50g Mixed Fruit
A pinch of salt

Cube the butter and add it to the flour.

Rub in the butter into the flour. Do this by literally rubbing the butter and flour between your thumbs and fingers until it resembles breadcrumbs.

Next up, add the caster sugar and fruit.

add the egg

Then mix it up until it looks like dough. You might want to get your hands involved at this point to help form a ball.

If at this stage the mixture isn't sticking together, add a little milk.

Roll your mixture out until it's about an inch thick and then cut out using a circle cutter. 

You can brush them with either egg or milk if you wish.

Pop them on a baking tray and put them in the oven at 220 degrees for about 10 mins or until golden brown. 

Ta-da, a scone to go with your cup of tea, couldn't be easier. Personally I love to let them cool slightly before adding butter which slowly melts, heaven.

Let me know if you make any!
