Brrrrr there’s a chill in the air and with Halloween out the way and Christmas not yet upon us, November can feel like a rather drab month. Other than the sparkle of bonfire night, there’s not much to keep us warm. There’s nothing like some good hearty comfort food to warm and soothe but it can be difficult not to pile on the lbs over the colder months.
Here at Boyne, we take pride in our ability to empower you. It’s important to take care of not only your teeth but your general wellbeing and health also. Which is why we have hunted the web to bring you a fab and healthy alternative to a great winter classic.
Here we also give a little nod to the 5th of November with…
