Shepherds Food of the week

Ovivo olive leaf extract in Shepherds Foods
This week’s Shepherds Food of the week™* is the remarkable Ovivo. It’s an absolute bargain** at only £14.99 for a bottle of Olive Leaf Extract***. I know what I’ll be filling the fridge up with for the next few weeks.

* Not every week. Barely every year, but I try.
** Actually seems a bit on the pricey side for something that I’ve never seen anyone in an olive producing country actually drink.
*** From their site: “Use with caution if you are allergic to Olive tree pollen as it may cause a seasonal respiratory allergic reaction. This herb may cause mild gastrointestinal irritation, particularly if taken on an empty stomach. Pregnant or breastfeeding women should always consult with their healthcare practitioner before use. Olive Leaf Extract may interfere with some Antibiotics and therefore anyone taking these should consult with their healthcare practitioner before use. “

Zen Shepherds

I love the fact that there is a large sign advertising yoga outside Shepherd Foods.

I keep expecting to trip over somebody cross-legged on the floor, between the slightly stale bread and the lottery scratch cards…

Yorkshire Puddings and Shepherds

Blackheath Yorkshire Puddings

Brilliant message from James, that I really should have put up earlier:

Shepherds Foods freezer quality control bought in to question again

Having had a couple of dodgy bits out of their freezer, and turning stuff down due to decidedly shabby looks, today has taken the biscuit.

Bought some frozen Yorkshire puddings, which have quite clearly been frozen, defrosted, refrozen, and thrown around the storeroom

They look a funny shade of grey to me…  Bet they cost £20 too…
