Good Hemp Unsweetened Alternative Milk Review

Good Hemp unsweetened alternative milk non dairy milkWhile looking in the alternative milk section recently, I spotted a new hemp milk by the brand 'Good Hemp'. It's a fresh chilled version (there is already a long life UHT option) and it can be found alongside the dairy milks in the chiller cabinet (Waitrose in this case).

Years ago I tried a long life hemp milk by Good Hemp but I couldn’t get on with the taste. I’m afraid it ended up down the sink. However, this new version looked so tempting: the bottle shape, the colours, fresh creamy milk against the bright green lettering on the bottle. I was swayed into picking it up and hoped that the taste had improved over time.

Boundless Activated Nuts & Seeds Review

Boundless activated nuts and seedsI'm snacker and always have a stash of healthy snacks close by.  This includes my favourite garbanzo chickpea snacks and Gourmet sodabread toasts.

Nuts and seeds are also a healthy snack but they are high in calories and very easy to overeat. So if you're watching your weight, it really pays to keep an eye on portion sizes.

If you're looking for ready portioned nuts and seeds, here is a fairly new arrival by Boundless, who have 4 varieties of nuts & seeds snacks. Their snacks won a Great Taste award in 2017 and they may offer greater health benefits because their nuts and seeds are activated. But why is activated better?

Jude’s No Added Sugar Ice Cream Review

Jude's no added sugar ice creams peanut butter and chocolate veganSince the arrival and success of low calorie Oppo ice cream 4 years ago, other brands are now following the trend. These ice creams have no added sugar which means they have far fewer calories than regular ice cream.

One of the recent brands I’ve been testing are made by Jude’s who already produce a successful award winning range of ice creams. Jude’s ice creams contain ‘30% less sugar and 30% fewer calories than similar ice cream products.

A whole tub contains 320 calories!

Tesco Free From Milk Plain Soya Yogurt Review

Tesco free from unsweetened soy yogurtAfter sampling Alpro’s No Sugar Plain Unsweetened Soya yogurt recently, I decided to compare Tesco’s own version of soya dairy free yogurt.

Their soya yogurt is part of the ‘free FROM’ range and this soya alternative is free from milk. It’s unsweetened and gets a green traffic light across the board. It’s also low in calories and carbohydrates so helpful for those on a weight loss diet or low carbohydrate diet.
