Figgy Christmas pudding

Hmmm. Obv. consult a professional for a official opinion, but you might have changed the taste of the pud if the acid in the pud has caused oxidation. Also aluminium is dealt with by the kidneys so if you or anyone being fed has kidney problems do more research/ask your doc.

vegan problem - fat cravings

Toasted sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds are tasty sprinkled on yogurt or in granola. There are also some nice ideas here: http://www.babble.com/best-recipes/fa...

Is Wild Rice Sold in UK or Europe?

Agreed. It is pricey stuff!

Is Wild Rice Sold in UK or Europe?

I guess it just comes down to cost. The fresh food I grant you but otherwise you can order those things online..although I'd probably balk at the price.
In London you can indeed buy pretty much anything from anywhere as you say but I have worked in several other UK cities and find it is often just hunting around. I haven't been to St. Andrews but Edinburgh was fairly good for variety.

Goodness direct has lots of rice and the red variety is £3.29 so not quite as bad as I thought:

Tesco or Sainsburys deliver most places no? They both sell the stuff.
Anywhere really rural is going to have issues with foodstuff variety.

Avocado, nuts and seeds and coconut will all give you healthy fats.

For reference go to the TESCO UK (nationwide grocery chain) or Ocado websites and type in what you are thinking of bringing into the search field in groceries. Tesco has a large American food range so you can also check what can be bought here. Actually even if you type in American you will see the range in the left hand menu.
(obviously rice is under rice and not under American)

Is Wild Rice Sold in UK or Europe?

Yes. All over the place and often also sold mixed with basmati rice. We have had the red one for as long as I remember also, but that one is mostly sold in health food shops and Whole foods etc.
I'm talking from a London point of view but I imagine most big cities would be the same.

Still Bánh mì in Manchester has to be worth a nod, eh.
I havent been to Manchester for years, but I remember how much cheaper the takeaway food was there than it is here in London..

Street food means food sold on the street after all and the only difference is that it is a bit more gourmet and a lot more international than it used to be. However vendors often flock in the same places - often where there are lots of captive office workers for lunch - and so become mini market places of their own.
If you bought the chips inside a shop they don't count. If you bought them from a little refurbished van, and they came with homemade organic ketchup and a pickled quail egg then it counts ;)

I think stalls of food vendors selling ready to eat food counts in a market context also as it makes commercial sense to band together. Have you tried any of the other vendors listed in that article?

I've actually had good street food - albeit often from farmer's markets in the most random of UK places and look - things might be looking up for Manchester:

Even when that event is over those traders will presumably still be elsewhere in the city.

Protein Powder: Is it worth it?

It's a tasty way of getting nutrients post workout, but you could have a sandwich instead.

Help: Butternut Squash Lasagna - add protein?

Cheese and durham wheat semolina pasta means that it will already have enough protein in it so don't worry.

Maybe Baltic restaurant and bar? Will take a big group and yours really does limit options. It isn't walking distance but near Waterloo and that isn't very far.
