Guide to Burns Night

The Scottish are perhaps not so renowned for their super-healthy foods, as after all, they are credited with inventing such foods as the deep fried Mars bar, as well as deep fried pizza. Although the aforementioned foods do taste surprisingly good, they are not considered to be healthy in the slightest. Despite this, the Scots certainly know their way around a kitchen, as there are many signature dishes which are synonymous with Scotland that taste absolutely divine.

What’s more, some of these signature dishes are actually very healthy and good for you, and as you may expect, there is no a deep fried chocolate product in sight. For our Scottish readers looking to jump on the gain train and take their training to the next level, get the most from Burns Night!
