I am really into fruit teas at the moment. After giving up coffee a few months ago I ended up sampling a lot of new teas because I was bored with my usual green or peppermint varieties. My current favourites are Vanilla Rooibos (from Marks and Spencer) and Apple Crunch by Twinings. The Twinings one is being discontinued so I had to pick up this Apple & Cinnamon tea as a replacement. Slimatee on the other hand, is just a great stand by for when your system feels clogged up, normally after a heavy meal or a few days of bad eating. I don’t use this every night as I’m not sure how good it is for your gut so I save it for maybe once or twice a month.
When nut butters took off last year I bought a jar of Meridian’s Almond Butter and it took me about 3 months to get through it. I know most girls love eating it out of the jar but I just don’t like it enough! I used it up in curries and shakes eventually, but thought maybe I should try the cashew version. Again, I couldn’t eat this out the jar but I’m definitely in the minority there so I would recommend you give it a go for yourself.
Finally, I picked up a sachet of Chocolate flavoured Whey Protein. I currently have a batch of strawberry flavoured protein powder by My Protein and I don’t really like it. Considering how little I actually use protein powder I am very wary about splashing out over £20 on a new version just to find out I don’t like it. So when I saw this sample size I thought it was worth a try. I’m going to try it mixed with almond milk instead of water to see how it tastes. I hope you enjoyed reading my little haul, I can’t wait to try my new products!
