M&S Skinny Pork Sausages Review

Sausages, to be properly juicy and tasty should really have a high meat content and they are usually high in saturated fat as well. I steer clear of those.

Fortunately there are some much lower calorie sausages and these Outdoor Bred Skinny Sausages from Marks and Spencer have only 78 calories each and are gluten free.

Marks & Spencer Madagascan Vanilla Iced Dessert

Marks and Spencer count on us vanilla ice creamWhile wondering around the M&S food hall a few weeks ago, I found myself in front of the freezer section. I don’t usually make it this far as I spend so long drooling over the delights in the fridge section.

But here I was and I immediately noticed these tubs of Count on Us Madagascan Vanilla Iced Dessert. Just 85 calories per 1/8th of the tub, which is 63g or about 2 ice cream scoops. After a quick scan of the ingredients, I decided this was worth trying out.

They are a dieters dream!

Shredded Wheat Multigrain Rye & Quinoa Review

I’ve passed the new Shredded Wheat Multigrain Rye & Quinoa packs a few times in various supermarkets, but haven't bought them because I'm trying to retrain my kids into choosing porridge in the morning.

But I'm not having much luck as most often they just want cold, crunchy cereal.

However, on this particular shopping trip, I succumbed to price when I noticed them being sold in Poundland. So into the basket they went and home for review.

Starbucks Almond Milk Calorie Comparison

I adore coffee. For me it’s a treat, everyday! While at home I use my lovely Nespresso machine, but whenever I’m out, it’s Starbucks every time. I just love it. I always make sure I’m armed with my Starbucks thermos flask as this means I get a discount for bringing my own cup.

While my drink of choice is a Soya latte, Starbucks have now increased their range of alternatives to dairy milk. Last year they introduced coconut milk and now from March, Almond milk is also on the menu. If you’re looking to save calories, choosing almond milk can help.

Hey Like Wow – Sugar Free Low Calorie Vitamin Drink

If you heard there was a new product called ‘Hey Like Wow’, would you have the slightest inkling as to what it could be? No? Me neither. In fact, it’s a new type of health drink currently available in branches of Tesco supermarkets.

In an almost saturated (excuse the pun) health water market, it seems there’s always room for one more brand. It has to be different and stand out, and this one certainly does that.

Hey Like Wow ‘a revolutionary new soft drink’ is a flavoured vitamin rich water. While there are other vitamin waters out there, this one is quite unique in that you dispense the vitamins into the drink yourself.

Calorie Comparisons McVitie’s Digestive Thins

Mcvities Digestive ThinsEven though I rarely buy packets of biscuits these days, I couldn’t resist stopping by the new range of McVitie’s Digestives Thins to check out the calorie content.

McVitie’s Digestives Milk Chocolate Thins have slightly more calories per 100g than the regular sized Chocolate Digestives but per biscuit, there are 52 fewer calories!

This is quite a big saving if you’re counting every calorie. Even eating two Thins provides fewer calories than a single regular sized Chocolate Digestive.
