Go Nutrition Protein Mousse & Jelly Review

This protein jelly was really hard to mix and I felt like it was essentially normal jelly mix just with added protein powder and it was so lumpy even though I whisked it with a fork for at least 5 minutes. I popped it in the fridge for 2 hours like the packet said and it was totally set, super quickly. It set with a foamy/fluffy layer on top and the jelly was normal underneath it. I think it would be fine if it was mixed properly but it was really difficult to do. If anyone has any tips, let me know!

Monkey Nutrition Primal 26 Whey Protein Isolate

Monkey Nutrition isn’t a brand that I’ve heard of before but when I was offered some of their Primal 26 Whey Protein Isolate to review and as a daily user of protein powder I thought I’d give it a go! There’s a massive 26g of protein in each scoop (the scoops are 30g as opposed to the standard 25g from MyProtein & The Protein Works). They only come in Vanilla, Chocolate and Strawberry flavours, which isn’t really a lot when you compare to some competitors but we use Vanilla in our protein breads and other baking. For our day to day shakes we usually go for more exciting flavours.

Women's Health UK; Are They Really Promoting a Healthy Lifestyle?

This post has been in the making for a little while as I bought Women’s Health UK particularly because I wanted to read the interview with Millie Mackintosh, the Jan/Feb cover star. This post isn’t about Millie though, she’s an awesome strong woman who’s lifestyle, diet and exercise regime are something to look up to. This post is about Women’s Health UK’s ‘My Week on A Plate’ feature which should have been Millie’s diet in this edition as people would have wanted to know what she exactly eats in order to get her amazing body.

Mello Raw Melon Juice

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.

Hello Mouthwash Review

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!

Healthy Heart Shaped Victoria Sponge Cake

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.

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!
