It’s January! There’s so much to do, so much to unpick. When do we all go back to work (by the time you’re reading this you’re probably already back, and if you’re not WHY AREN’T YOU BACK?!)? What day is it? Why do we keep writing ‘2018’ as the date (trick: nobody writes things down anymore)? And other things. And it’s these many other things that make January a really tough month to handle. So why on Earth do we need people telling us to eat healthily and try and become a ‘new you’ during the most stressful and lame part of the year!? Well that’s our point exactly! So here, to save you from the bland diet chat of January, is our biggest, fullest and most exciting treats from our brands. Eat up, food lovers!

Avocado and Bacon Burger

We all love burgers, they’re the best, so we couldn’t leave this list without a wonderful GBK burger recipe. It’s got a little bit of healthy in there (avocado and some salad for those who don’t want to feel too guilty) but it mostly indulgent burger goodness. Add a couple of rashers of bacon in there to create the ultimate burger and maybe cheese if you want to go completely crazy. Then enjoy!
