I’ve been very Rude today.
I wasn’t to start with though as I didn’t have time! I went to Body Pump first thing, then stopped at the farm shop up the road on the way back. I’d made the owner a GF chocolate cake while I was off work… and she said it had been bought by some people who didn’t need GF food but just thought it looked good – and they loved it 🙂
She asked me to make some more so that means with the cafe, for which I’m still making one cake a week, I’ve got two customers… a couple more and I’ll be able to give up work.
When I say “a couple” of course, I mean quite a lot…. Details… 🙂
I made her two single-tier chocolate cakes with chocolate buttercream – and forgot to take a picture, hence the rubbish phone-in-car one:
I made one for the cafe at the same time, then cleaned the house and had lunch while they were cooking, iced one lot and took them to the shop, cycled to the yard to ride Dave, got drenched in a rainstorm that started as we started riding, carried on as I cycled home – and stopped once I was inside. Thanks.
But in between times…. I was being very Rude. Want to see pictures…?!
Of course you do.
The lovely Rude Health people sent me some of their newly-launched corn thins to try. I’ve had and enjoyed their multigrain thins so I had a feeling I’d like these… but still, I did my research thoroughly 🙂
Savoury, with Philadelphia for lunch:
Sweet, with cashew butter and jam:
And totally naked. I told you there was some Rudeness involved. Cover your eyes, kids 🙂
I’d like to point out that Rude Health didn’t pay me or anything to say how great these are (although if they want to, I’d be more than happy to oblige…) but they really are!
Even on their own, they’re really nice. I love a good rice cake with toppingness but some plain ones taste not unlike polystyrene, which isn’t one of my favourite flavours.
These are light and crispy and all that’s in them is organic maize and a smidgen (less than 1%) salt. And a pinch of sunshine too, apparently 🙂
I really like Rude Health as a company too. When I met Nick, the boss, at the Gluten and Allergy Free Show in May, we had a really good shared rant about healthy food and he told me, for example, the reason most companies make rice cakes thick is because it’s more economical (the Rude Health ones are thin) and how he doesn’t like the amount of sugar in lots of cereals, etc… and that was before I knew he was the boss!
I reckon this is a company with the right attitude. I also I reckon these thins are definitely one to buy again and would recommend them whether you’re GF or not… they’d even be worth buying just to laugh at the comments they print on the box (especially the top flap…!)
Have you tried any Rude Health products – what do you think?
