Weight Watchers British Favourites Yogurts Review

Weight Watchers British Favourites YogurtsI was finally nearing the end of an interminably long queue in Poundland, when I glanced into the fridges by the checkout. I don’t normally buy anything from these fridges, but on this day I noticed they were selling some Weight Watchers yogurts I hadn't seen before.

They’re called British Favourites and each pot has just under 60 calories and 1 ProPoint.

Weight Watchers Fruit Purees Review

Weight Watchers Tropical Crush Fruit PureeI do most of my supermarket shopping online these days, but the trouble with that, is I often miss out on new products arriving in store. So when I venture away from my virtual shop into the real thing, I usually find all sorts of products I’d never have known about.

On my latest trip to a Waitrose store, I spotted a few new products from Weight Watchers, one of which are these individual fruit puree pouches. There were two varieties: Berry Crush and Tropical Crush. I purchased one of each. The Tropical Crush has 42 calories while the Berry Crush has 41 calories. Both are worth 1 ProPoint.

Options Low Calorie Hot Chocolate new flavours

I really should have written this post many months ago. But study, work and family have taken all my time, plus I wasn't sure whether these new Options varieties were going to hang around long enough for me to write about.

But it seems at least one of these two new flavours has graduated from single sachets to a large plastic container. If you haven’t seen them already, the new Options flavours I'm taking about are ‘Sweet Popcorn’ and ‘Butterscotch’. Both have 39 calories per sachet.

Cheat Sheet Guide To Growing Your Own Herbs

I love adding fresh herbs to the recipes I make. They instantly add vibrant colour, freshness and a host of added health benefits.

However, I don't grow my own herbs. I keep meaning to give it a go, but never get around to it.

Instead I end up buying those sealed packs of herbs from the supermarket which often end up turning to mush in the fridge because I've forgotten about them!

So rather than waste money throwing away expensive packs of wilted herbs, I've decided it's time to start growing my own. But where to start?

Sukrin wheat free gluten free bread review

Sukrin Bread Mix Sunflower and Pumpkin SeedBread is my main food weakness, especially the seeded types. The trouble is, all those seeds make for a very calorific bread. A single slice from some brands can contain up to 150 calories, or more.

So I was amazed to find this bread by Sukrin which is not only packed full of seeds, it doesn’t even contain any wheat. And, according to the nutritional label, one slice provides just 47 calories. The trouble is, it’s not cooked. You have to bake it yourself. Was it worth the bother?

belVita Breakfast Biscuits New Tops

Despite having more varieties than all the other breakfast biscuits out there, belVita have decided they need to keep adding to their range. If you’re a fan of breakfast biscuits and have had your fill of what’s already on offer, perhaps you’ll be tempted by the new belVita Tops. They’re basically the regular whole grain biscuit with a strawberry or choco-hazelnut topping.

Crisped Kale New Recipe Pret a Manger Snack

Pret a manger Crisped Kale new recipeNo sooner had I published my review of Pret's Kale Crisps, and they've gone and changed their recipe! I must admit that for the last couple of weeks I hadn’t been able to find any Kale Crisps in Pret stores. No one seemed to know why they didn’t have any stock. Now I do.

Pret's Kale crisps have lost quite a few calories in the process… down from 105 to just 67 calories per packet. But what else has changed?

Pret a Manger Kale Crisps Review

Pret a Manger Kale CrispsUntil a couple of years ago, I hadn't heard of kale. Now it’s one of my favourite snacks. No, I’m not munching on raw kale leaves, that would be weird! (For those who do like munching on raw kale leaves, I salute you, I wish I could). Kale is a supremely healthy vegetable, but the leaves are somewhat on the bitter side.

One way of improving the taste of kale is by turning them into kale crisps. You can do this easily using a dehydrator or in a slow oven. I haven’t had any success with making my own, so I buy them ready made when I can.

My favourite Kale snack is made by Pret a Manger.
