Ben & Jerry’s Salted Caramel Brownie Ice Cream

Ben & Jerrys salted caramel brownie light ice creamBen & Jerry’s ice cream is amazingly delicious, but not something you want to eat on a regular basis if you’re watching your weight.

Luckily for those of us who love ice cream, there are lots of new style ice creams on the market with a much reduced calorie content. Mostly this is because they’ve replaced sugar with a sweetener such as stevia.

But Ben & Jerry’s Light Ice Cream version hasn’t done this. Instead they’ve reduced the fat content to reduce the calories, stating it has 50% less fat than similar ice creams.

Dairy Free Biomel Probiotic Drinks review

Biomel almond milk drink dairy freeI’ve written about the health benefits of kefir in previous posts, but what about if you’re vegan or dairy free? Kefir contains a fantastic source of healthy bacterial cultures, but of course, it’s made from milk so not suitable for those with a dairy allergy, or who are vegan.

Fortunately there are dairy free culture drinks with all the benefits of dairy kefir. One of these is produced by the company Biomel. They have a range of probiotic drinks made from coconut milk, and more recently almond milk.

They’re available in 510ml bottles and little ‘shot’ bottles, 125ml, with an average of just 50 calories per bottle.

M&S Sweet Potato Falafels Plant Kitchen Review

M&S sweet potato falafels plant kitchen veganMarks & Spencer have a whole new delicious range of meals dedicated to vegan food which you can find under the branding name ‘Plant Kitchen’.

I was browsing around the ready meals section in M&S recently looking for something nice and easy to prepare and which all the family would like AND was healthy. I couldn’t find anything that particularly appealed until I got to the vegan / plant based section.

There were so many delicious looking meals it was hard to choose, but I purchased this Sweet Potato Falafels dish which comes with a cashew nut & cannellini dip. They have 104 calories each.
