Sweet potato toast… it’s a thing

Looking for a Sunday brunch update? The latest trend is to swap your regular toast for sweet potato toast instead. And the great news is, it’s just as easy to ‘cook’. All you need to do is slice a sweet potato lengthways, so that it’s thin enough to toast but won’t fall apart, and toast for 3-4 minutes. Then team with whatever tickles your fancy. Bon appetit!

Beardy men = babes?

It seems that beards are a little bit like Marmite. On the one hand, people have got a thing for facial hair – see hot actors, Prince Harry and the cute barista at your local coffee shop. But, on the other, scientists have found that those opposed to beards are actually repelled by worries they might contain lice or fleas. Errrr….?! Quite the divide!
