Cyprus: land of ice cream and honey

Cyprus ice cream

I’ve just got back from the most lovely week away on the beautiful island of Cyprus. Food always plays a big part whenever we go on holiday, partly because it’s such a treat that we get to eat out for every meal, but my favourite bit this time was enjoying all the fantastic ice cream out there. Stupidly we’d always bought ‘normal’ ice creams in the past (Magnums, Maxi Bon etc) but this time we realised what we were missing! The ice-cream bars are FABULOUS! So I thought I’d share some of my many ice-cream photos from the holiday.

Our favourite flavours were: Cherry, Chocomania (dark rich chocolate), Roche (like Ferrero Roche flavour with bits of wafer mixed in), Cheesecake (vanilla with crushed biscuit and strawberry ripple), Strawberry, Vanilla Lovers, Oreo (as in Oreo biscuits), Pistachio, Mr Nico (we still have no idea what flavour this really is, my best guess is caramel with chocolate ripple and nuts). Yum!

  1. Primal bread dates back in history approximately 7,500 to 8,000 years
    ago. It may be hard for some people to transition because our bodies are so used to preservatives, artificial flavorings, sugar, glucose and other unnatural food, so start with changing one meal a day.
    Our up to date diets are packed with foods that are in actuality no good for us.
