Light & Free Fig n Honey Greek Style Yogurt Review

Danone Light & Free Fig Yogurt Orla KielyDanone have added another new variety to their range of Light & Free yogurts. The latest is a fig & honey Greek style 0% fat and 0% added sugar yogurt.

This one stands out on the shelf because of its attractive designer edition outer sleeve - Orla Keely’s zingy design.

Like the others in the Light & Free range, it’s a very low calorie yogurt with just 60 calories per pot. I like figs so was tempted enough to pick up a pack to try out.

How has veganism grown in the UK?

Once upon a time, the word ‘vegan’ was something of a rarity. You definitely wouldn’t find much of it on food packaging labels, or restaurant menus. It was deemed an extreme lifestyle choice often synonymous with deprivation.

But the whole concept has undergone a radical change in the last few years, with a record number of Brits expected in this year’s Veganuary, where people embrace a vegan diet throughout January.

To find out just how much is veganism growing in the UK, top soil supplier Compost Direct has some fascinating stats.

Gregg's Vegan Sausage Roll Review and Comparison

It feels odd to be writing about sausage rolls for this blog and they're not something I would advise for weight loss. But this morning I found myself on the end of an exceptionally long queue outside my local Gregg's bakery. And the longer the queue got, the more people joined! I felt I was part of some 'in the know' movement.

My reason for joining the Gregg's queue was because of all this talk about the Gregg's Vegan sausage rolls. So I decided to do a little comparison between their ‘normal’ sausage rolls and the new vegan variety.

I tried to buy one yesterday, but at 12.30pm, they were sold out. So my next outing to Gregg's was 10.30am this morning, but only after I’d phoned them to check they actually had any vegan sausage rolls to sell.
