CRUSSH Juices, Smoothies Recipe Book Review

Crussh Recipe BookI have to admit I've been neglecting my juicer since purchasing a NutriBullet. However, after receiving a complimentary copy of the CRUSSH Juice Bar's beautiful new recipe book, my juicer has been dusted off and is back in action on an 'almost' daily basis.

Those who live in and around London are probably familiar with the name CRUSSH. This popular fresh juice outlet was set up 15 years ago and are now the UK's fastest growing chain of juice bars.

Accolades to their name include 'British Smoothie Championship Winners' and '2015 UK Juicing Champions'. CRUSSH are passionate about providing healthy and nutritious juices, all freshly juiced on the spot.

Sainsbury’s Multiseed Flatbreads Review

Sainsbury's seeded flatbreadWhile searching for wholemeal pitta breads in Sainsbury's a few weeks ago, I ended up purchasing a pack of these multiseed flatbreads instead.

New from Sainsbury's and available in plain wholemeal as well, these flatbreads are pre-grilled and have 108 calories each.

Doves Farm Organic Gluten Free Flapjacks Review

Flapjacks are one of those snacks which might have the appearance of healthiness because of the oats, but they're actually full of sugar and high in calories. Usually they're made with ingredients such as butter, golden syrup and brown sugar and, while they may be delicious, their high calorie count means they're a no go area for those wishing to lose weight.

An alternative option could be Doves Farm, who have recently introduced a new range of lower calorie, gluten free, organic flapjacks. They include the basic ingredient of oats, but have added a range of different healthy ingredients, such as dried fruit, linseeds and chia seeds.

Weetabix Protein Crunch Review Chocolate Flavour

Weetabix Protein Crunch Chocolate flavourI really enjoy browsing around the breakfast cereals aisle in supermarkets. There's often something new and I'm always on the look-out for healthier options.

Last week I spotted a new cereal from Weetabix, called Protein Crunch. It's described as a delicious crunchy breakfast that helps keep you going all morning. It also says it's packed with protein and is a satisfying combination of wholegrain wheat and oats.

The high sugar content nearly put me off purchasing, and it was only available in chocolate flavour (in this store). However, I was interested to see whether the high protein content made any difference to hunger levels. Therefore, I decided to purchase a pack (for review purposes only)!
