5 Ways to Beat the Heat if you’re a Bunny!

IMG_20160718_140319

  1. Ensure your rabbit is kept out of direct sunlight by moving the rabbit’s accommodation to a shaded area of the garden or provide shade by using a parasol.
  2. Freeze a large plastic lemonade bottle full of water and place in your rabbits run for him to lie against and cool down. Some bunnies may even enjoy nudging at and rolling this around their run.
  3. Place a large granite slab in your rabbits run to provide a cool surface for your rabbit to ‘chill’ out on.
  4. Feed leafy green vegetables and provide fresh water every day to keep your rabbit hydrated.
  5. Large hollow logs or readymade tunnels from pet stores can provide your rabbit a cool (and fun) shaded hiding place, why not entice him in by hiding handfuls of fresh hay and leafy greens for him to find!?

Healthy Oat Pancakes

12715737_10156594822450492_223374993856713325_n

Ingredients

2 ripe peeled bananas,

1/2 cup of oats,

2 eggs,

1 tbsp of yoghurt,

Splash of milk.

To cook

1 tsp coconut oil

This is the easiest and quickest breakfast to make if you’re on the go. All you have to do is put all the ingredients apart from the coconut oil in a blender and blend until it’s smooth. Then heat a non stick frying pan with a little bit of coconut oil and then pour or ladle the pancake mixture into small ‘American style’ pancakes on the frying pan. You should be able to fry roughly 2-3 at a time depending on the size of your frying pan. Wait for the pancake to cook on one side, once you start to see air bubbles coming through, you can then flip the pancake to cook on the other side. They should come out golden brown and fluffy. Serve with any fruit of your choice, we personally like them with blueberries and a dollop of greek yoghurt. If you wish to reheat these pancakes at a later date for a healthy alternative breakfast, just pop them in the toaster for a minute for a crisp and warm pancake.

Here Come The Girls!

We are very pleased to introduce you to our new #HollywoodHens.  Each one as pretty as the next, we’re proud to have these new additions to the team. There’s some exciting new products on the horizon here at Omlet HQ so we thought that our fabulous products deserved models to match. Let’s introduce you to the Omlet Angels….

 

First up we have Marilyn. Marilyn is a lovable hen, who likes to keep herself to herself but when the camera comes out she’s ready. She’s very professional and gets the job done as and when she’s needed. Known amongst the staff here for her fluffy feet and elegant feathers she’s hard not to love. Marilyn has always been about the footwear and prides herself on her unique features, she said “Give a girl the right shoes, and she can conquer the world“.  We also asked Marilyn what drives her, she said “I am not interested in money. I just want to be wonderful!”

Next up we have the youngest in our flock, it’s Shirley! She’s lively, full of energy and is our Little Princess. Most famous for her early chick work, Shirley has come to join the girls at Omlet in search of a more mature acting career. We love the pattern of her feathers and think that they really add to the texture of the picture when she’s photographed. Renowned for her tapping feet it’s very difficult to get Shirley to sit still, luckily she agreed to speak to us for a short moment earlier in the week. When we asked her how she copes with the paparazzi and attention she said “Any star can be devoured by human adoration, sparkle by sparkle.”

Walking the catwalk next we have Rita!  She is a true goddess who oozes glamour wherever she struts. Known in the industry for her fiery temper, enviable feathers and iconic collar, Rita is a real legend. We’re sure she’s going to make a great Cover Girl for Omlet!

We’d like to introduce you to Betty ‘The Million Dollar Legs.’ Betty is a kind, demure and elegant hen. She is more than happy to be the leading lady or sometimes just as an extra in the background. She’s a tremendous all rounder, with her flawless ‘Million Dollar Legs’ we can see a great deal of success in her future.  She said “There are two reasons I’m in show business, and I’m standing on both of them.”

Ginger is the dancer amongst the group. Breaking off from a recent partnership with a Cockerel who she doesn’t wish to name, Ginger auditioned for us and we thought she was perfect for the role. When Ginger’s not rehearsing or choreographing new routines she likes to laze about in her Eglu Cube and unwind.

And last but not least we have Beyonce….she’s the tallest and sassiest in the flock. She’s a triple threat, coming from a background in singing, dancing and acting she is by far the most experienced in the group. The other girls not only physically look up to her but they also find her such an inspiration even with her diva tantrums. When asked “Who runs the world?” she replied “GIRLS!” #HenPower
