Rhubarb may be a vegetable but it makes for a very fruity drink. As usual with Cawston there’s no artificial stuff and they use a blend of pure pressed fruit juice and sparkling water, no ‘made from concentrate’ stuff.
Doves have also introduced a non-gluten free organic Ginger Oat Biscuit which combines two of my favourite flavours, and it’s bound to live up to the quality we can normally expect from the folk at Doves Farm.
If you’re dairy intolerant it needn’t put a dampener on Christmas preparations…
Plamil have come up with two yummy dairy free and gluten free Advent Calendars with 24 chocolates… I mean, days to countdown with.
The first is an organic and fairtrade dairy free calendar which, according to our GoodnessDirect manager, Faith, tastes very much like milk chocolate. It’s a great alternative for those who love milk chocolate but can’t have any.
The other Plamil calendar (also dairy free) comes with no added sugar – but is sweetened with xylitol instead. This one is 70% cocoa, so it’s perfect for those who like their chocolate a little bit darker.
Plamil is proud to be a nut free and vegan outlet so you can reliably buy from them with an easy conscience.
Many people have been asking for a particular crispbread called Pain des Fleurs translated ‘bread of flowers’.
It’s not surprising as it’s the most delicious crispbread I’ve ever tasted, with a sweet and lightly crispy texture.
And it’s also gluten free.
The reason why it’s both delicious and gluten free is that it is a crispbread made from chestnuts (and it’s also organic…) I was writing recently about the versatility of chestnuts and this is just such an example.
However, Pain des Fleurs also make crispbreads using buckwheat and also quinoa. I can’t tell you how these taste but if the quality is anything like the chestnut crispbread it has got to be pretty good.
I don’t mind taking a vitamin or some other little tablet to boost my health, and the strength of the supplement industry shows I’m not alone.
Bioglan are a company who sell themselves on the basis of being “serious about health”. As I get older, their newest products are beginning to look more attractive.
For me their best selling points are the unique mixes of nutrients designed to help the body and the transparent information on their packaging.
Super Fish Oil 30s
Capsules designed to be high in EPA and DHA Omega 3 fatty acids and deliberately coated for release in the intestines where they can be more easily absorbed. Also preventing a fishy after taste.
Red Krill Oil
Again designed to be better absorbed, krill oil is 10 times more powerful than a standard fish oil capsule.
Joint-Aid Triple Action
Combines three important and powerful nutrients help maintain healthy joints: glucosamine, chondroitin and MSM (methyl sulfonyl methane)
Contains 4 strains of probiotic that can help sustain a healthy level of friendly bacteria.
