Thermos Taste for Adventure

For me, the importance of eating well is imperative, as it should be to everyone.

I spend my life adventuring. Wild Swimming, Hiking, Cycling, Foraging, Growing my own Food, Kayaking, Travelling - I am always on the go and always need nutrient dense food which will fill my belly while I'm out and about and this Risotto does it all and is so easy to make, that anyone can achieve it!! 

It is also perfect for the Thermos Food Flasks!!

Mushrooms are highly beneficial to our health. They are high in essential Vitamins & Minerals (including Vitamin D which is vital to us all). They are a powerful and more importantly, NATURAL antioxidant :)

The list is endless!

By consuming mushrooms regularly, you can eliminate the risks of several diseases and be all round healthier and happier! 


Consumption of Oyster Mushrooms in particular, can lower cholesterol levels :)

    This was really good. I used a mix of mushrooms that I could find in my local supermarket as I'm not much of a forager!
