This week is Farmhouse Breakfast Week as being run by Cuckoo Foods, this week is all about being creative with your breakfasts! Cuckoo are running a really cool Bircher Muesli competition where they’re challenging bloggers to create their own but sadly my muesli bits went AWOL in the post so I’m going to share their amazing-tasting little yoghurt and muesli pots with you guys instead! First up, I absolutely love the branding of these products – the Modern Muesli is a really cool tagline and I really like the packaging, their website is really cool too!
Here’s my newest health and fitness routine that I’m now a whole week (massive, I know) into. Disclaimer: There’s no juicing, no Special K cereal, no skipping meals, I’m eating carbs and hardly doing any running. My latest health & fitness kick is just a step up from what I’ve been doing for the past year but will some added intensity and more monitoring!
Mello is the newest juice on the scene, it’s 100% raw and natural and is apparently the UK’s ‘first raw melon juice‘ and it’s taken the almost-saturated juice market by storm. You can even buy it on Ocado now! What makes Mello different to all of the juices though? It doesn’t use traditional juicing methods like heat pasteurising as the founder, Rose Aldean believes that this ‘damages the taste and health benefits’. Mello is cold pressed by a process called High Pressure Processing (HPP) which gives it it’s completely clean taste. Unlike other juices on the market which are often full of additives, it’s literally all fruit juice. The sugar content is apparently less than the industry’s favourite green juice and another plus is that one small bottle includes 45% of your RDA of Vitamin A & C! It’s rehydrating, repairing and replenishing for your body and your skin.
Mouthwash is one of those things that we’re all supposed to use and usually forget about like dental floss! Well, for me it is and I usually hate the taste of most of them as I find that they taste really chemically. Enter – Hello and their range of natural mouthwashes which have no alcohol, nasty chemicals or colourings. I’ve trialled their Supermint taste which Hello kindly sent to me but they also stock it in pink grapefruit and mojito mint! I really like the taste of this one, it’s a million times nicer than your standard chemically mouthwash and is 99% natural. Hello also have breath sprays which are a great idea for keeping fresh on the go especially if you’ve had a cheeky onion-ridded sandwich or salad at lunch time!
This crazy heart shaped cake mould is one of my favourite pieces of kitchenalia at the moment. It’s silicone and bendy and easy to clean, bright red and when you cut your cake, it’s heart shaped! What else could you want?
I made a ‘healthy’ Victora sponge the other day, topped with strawberries and fromage frais! It wasn’t the best cake so I’m not going to give our the recipe, I’m sure Google can help you out there! I just wanted to share how cute this little cake mould is, it’s fab.
Just a quick one today: Vitamin Shots from 6VitaminShots are little Acai Berry shots for energy boosts with 6 different benefits:
SUPPORTING ENERGY RELEASE
REDUCTION OF TIREDNESS & FATIGUE
SUPPORTING THE IMMUNE SYSTEM
MENTAL FUNCTION & PERFORMANCE
These are amazing for an early gym session, I feel much more awake and ready to face a big day! Give them a try.
I’m a giant gym junkie, and also an image-conscious girl, mixed with being a beauty blogger, this makes these products extremely exciting to me! I subscribed to Women’s Health and I got these babies from Nip + Fab, a brand I already like. I’ve used a few of their skincare products like a face wash and their Shine Fix which I love as a primer. On a side note, I love the packaging of Nip + Fab, it always looks great!
