This month’s Degustabox has a new year, new me theme with lots of healthy options in the box, but there are also some nice treats too, so it should clear away any post-Christmas gloom.
I’ve been out doing plenty of walking and I find that the Mahtay Yerba Mate Sparkling Tea is a good size to take when I am out and about. It’s a light sparkling drink that gives you energy too. Another great companion for a walk is the Pulsin Vanilla Choc Chip Protein Booster which is a handy taste bar containing 13g of plant based protein. Back at home I used the Pulsin Vanilla Whey Protein Powder for adding a protein boost. Explore Cuisine Organic Edamame & Mung Bean Fettuccine is a great way of adding extra protein and fibre to your favourite pasta dishes.
January is a time when many of us are looking to try to lose a little weight. I was interested to try the LighterLife Fast Ready to Drink Shakes, available exclusively from Superdrug, but I found the shakes a little sweet for my taste, but I am interested in trying the rest of the range. Eating more oily fish is something I’ve been trying to do and my go-to sources are mackerel and tuna. Wild Planet Albacare Wild Tuna Steaks are 100% pole and line caught. They are cooked once to retain the natural juices in the tin, so don’t drain and use the Omega-3 rich juices to enhance the flavour and your nutrition. Clipper Tea has long been a favourite of mine. Clipper Everyday Organic Tea makes a really good cuppa and it’s organic and the teabags are unbleached.
Also keeping me going this month have been the Jordans Juicy Red Berry Frusli Bars made with handfuls of zingy cranberries and raisins. Hersheys Cookies N Creme 5 Pack Snack Pack have provided a very welcome sweet treat. I love noodles for a quick and tasty meal so the Miso Tasty Spicy Ramen Noodle Kit was very welcome. A little spice got added to our meals through the Latin American Kitchen products from Santa Maria: Chipotle Mayo Topping and Colombian Crunchy Chicken Bites Seasoned Corn Coating. A refreshing contrast was provided by the Robinsons Fruit Cordial with a more sophisticated mix of fruits than the average cordial.
