Itsu Crispy Seaweed Thins Review

After discovering the seaweed snack ‘Selwyn’s Seaweed Sandwich’ reviewed here, I wondered whether there were any more out there. My search didn’t take long and the first one I found is made by Itsu. I love Itsu Japanese restaurants and there’s always plenty to choose from when looking for lower calorie options.

Itsu’s seaweed snack is called ‘Crispy Seaweed Thins (the sensational new snack)’. They’re sold in multi packs of three x 5g, and each snack has a mere 24 calories!

Weight Watchers Apple & Cinnamon Cookies Review

Weight Watchers apple and cinnamon cookiesBrowsing around Poundland recently, I noticed an Apple & Cinnamon variety of cookies from Weight Watchers. Since apple & cinnamon is one of my favourite combinations, I decided to buy them.

Boxes contain eight individually wrapped packs of two cookies, so there are 16 in total. Each pack of two has 84 calories (2 Propoints), or 42 calories for one cookie (1 Propoint).

Kirsty's Healthy Ready Meals Review

The terms 'ready meal' and 'healthy' don't often share sentence space together. But after much slating by consumer watchdogs and the like, supermarkets are now offering healthier ranges of own-brand ready meals.

It's not only supermarkets. Entrepreneurial individuals such as Kirsty's are using this gap in the market to show us that it is possible to make a healthy ready meal.

Kirsty is a lady who, back in 2010, won investment backing from two of the Dragons from the Dragon’s Den. She now has a new range of five healthy ready meals.

Coca Cola Life with Stevia Review

Coca Cola Life can with steviaI’d heard some time ago about the release of Coca-Cola with stevia, however it was only last week I actually saw them on sale. It’s easy to recognise as it comes in a green can.

The new Coke is called ‘Coca-Cola Life’ and is described as ‘a sparkling soft drink with vegetable extracts and sugar and sweetener’. It has 33% fewer calories than the full sugared variety.

I’m not a fizzy drink consumer, but my son and his friends love the stuff. So I decided to buy a few to see what they thought. And of course, I had a small taste myself.

Lake District Dairy Quark Review and Recipe

Lake District Dairy Quark varietiesI recently received three tubs of Quark soft cheese, courtesy of the Lake District Dairy Co. Quark is a type of soft cheese that really deserves more attention than it currently gets.

Quark soft cheese is extremely versatile and can be used in place of cream cheese or fromage frais in sweet or savoury recipes. Quark provides a good source of protein, and because it’s low in calories and fat, it’s a fantastic choice for slimmers.
