1. Righteous Vegan salad dressings
I discovered these natural and unique salad dressings and to be honest, they’re so delicious, I’ve been using them as a dipping sauce on many meals. I tend to favour the ginger & toasted sesame seed for its sweet and sour yet warm combination.
I found them in Tesco on offer for £1.25 but I believe they were end of range so you may not find them in there. The company also do small pots fr salad but the portion is much bigger (and more calories) so prefer the idea of bottles.
2. Tasty Little Numbers 100 Calorie Chocolate Biscuit Bars
I have absolutely loved these this month. I feel like I can eat a chocolate bar without breaking the calorie bank and they’re phenomenal dunked in a cup of tea if you really want a full on mouth of chocolate. I prefer the white chocolate for its sweeter taste, the dark one if I feel stressed and the milk chocolate in my tea.
3. Meridian 100% Peanut Butter
I have a new friend this month; a nearly finished jar of 100% pure peanut butter. Although not quite moreish as a forbidden added sugar and palm oil version, this I think works in its favour. I don’t feel the urge to keep spooning it straight from jar to mouth, but have made some fantastic peanut butter flavoured meals such as porridge, smoothies and the closest thing to a Snickers, Medjool dates, cocoa powder and p/b. It was also a steal at £1.99 from Tesco and haven’t seen this price anywhere else.
Last month I needed to quit buying sugary cereals and have been opting for more natural and complex options and dates have made an appearance in most of my smoothies and porridges. Or when I’m slightly peckish, I just reach for a couple but save the medjools for the once every few days treat. It’s packed full of fibre and adds a beautiful sweet blend to smoothies in particular.
5. Agave syrup
Another natural but intense breakfast porridge and smoothies buddy. It perfectly pimps up mornings but when I want variety and luxury.
6. Seeds/ Nuts
Again, like the dates, nuts and seeds have been my new go-to snack in the day or topping for my porridge or tarting up pasta dishes. I found I wasn’t eating enough in the morning and lunch, so by dinner time, I would feel quite drained, so have been trying to fine-tune my energy levels in the day.
7. Fudge’s Charcoal Crackers
Don’t be put off by the concept or colour, these little beauties are cute and tasty. As they’re rich in fiber, they sweeten a little when you chew them and aren’t overpowering, alloing your toppings to take glory. I bought these on offer at 75p but being honest, it will only be Christmas time when I pay the full £2.59 as gift sets with my homemade chutneys. They’re too special for every day, so would only recommend if you have guests or artisan gifts to team with hampers.
8. Homedics MySpa Manicure Set
Although a relatively new addition, this stands out against many. As I mentioned in my last video, I hands and nails have been neglected for quite a while as I’ve given up doing my nails because nail varnish lasts about 12 hours or less on me. So, in a bid to master it, I found this amazing manicure set which looked brand new for £2 in a local charity shop. I’ve been doing my nails, touching them up most nights and this even has a nail dryer! There are 12 tools for a mix of hands and feet and is rechargable. After buying it, I looked it up for some of the tools not mentioned in the booklet and found it was £59.99 on Amazon so it feels like I’ve really treated myself at a bargain where my savings covered my beauty products I purchased recently.
So there you go! If you could recommend to me some of your favourites, then please comment below; I am always wanting to try new things. Have a fun June!
