Its been such a long time since I did a review post, but recently I have been lucky enough to try some wonderful products that I want to share with you.
I’m not a big coffee drinker but do like a cup now and then. Call me snobbish but I’m not really one for coffee granules, so on the eventuality that I do fancy a coffee it’s always from a coffee shop.
When I was asked to try Puro Coffee I snapped up the chance to try making posh coffee in my home. It arrived in a hessian sack and complete with its single serve cafetiere., so cute! I received the Puro organic, Puro Feurte and Puro Noble, each with their unique and intense notes which you can read more about here. The rich and dark flavours of this coffee are exquisite, definitely one for you coffee connoisseurs out there.
What I enjoyed mosta about this product is their dedication to all things fare trade. Also, money from each bag of Puro coffe sold goes to help protecting areas of rainforest. Puro coffee is sold worldwide, however there is currently no stockist information on the UK website.
Another thing that really isn’t on my go to list is bread. We really don’t eat that much of it in our house, whenever I do buy a loaf with the intention if using it, low and behold it ends up in the freezer.
I was intrigued by this low carb bread, in a lot if cases when bread manufacturers claim that there bread is lower in fat or better for you it’s mainly because the slices are half the size of a regular loaf. This particular seeded loaf contains 15.8g of carbohydrates per 100g, which is significantly less than other loaves out there. It also packs in 25g of protein per 10g…not bad!
I found this to have a really cakey and dense texture, almost like rye or pumpernickel bread. I have stashed this in the freezer and have been taking out slices as I go and it keeps very well. LivLife bread is currently available from Waitrose for £1.99 a loaf.
I’m a big fan of Linwood’s products and have tried them in the past. When I was asked to review their Milled Flaxseed, Probiotic & Vitamin D I snapped up the chance.
This is just bursting with Vitamin D which is vital for bone strength and calcium absorption. It is also a great source of dietary fibre. A little sprinkle of ground flax seeds in your porridge, yoghurt bowls, in smoothies and even on your salads and stir fries is a great way to get some added nutrition in your meals.
Linwoods can be found nationwide in Holland and Barratt stores.
Now you all know that I love me some raw chocolate, well any chocolate actually, but raw chocolate always hits the spot. When asked to review this particular ‘new-to-me’ brand of raw chocolate I said yes faster than lightening.
These organic and additive free chocolate comes in a variety of flavours. I have already posted about the lime flavour on the blog, but other flavours include peppermint, orange and wild raspberry, coffee, cranachan and cacao nib crunch.
