1. Peanut butter
The peanut butter was rich and soft in texture. Just to satisfy my curious palette, I even made a peanut butter and chocolate coconut spread sandwich and it was delicious. Keep in mind this peanut butter is sugar free and may not hit your usual sweet spot if you are someone with a sweet tooth. However, this peanut butter spread is perfect as a healthy snack or as a breakfast meal.
Price – Rs.1250/=
2. Coconut cacao spread
With no doubt this should be my favorite product out of all. This coconut cacao spread is the perfect compliment for any cupboard. Creamy and
smooth! This can be used as any of your favorite jams . Whether it be on toast , on a biscuit or on its own! It’s stunningly scrumptious.
Price – Rs.500/=
3. Chickpea Fettuccine
Fettuccine is a type of pasta popular in the Italian cuisine. It’s a thick and flat pasta traditionally made of egg and flour.
As a pasta lover , I like to try as many as different kinds of pastas and this was my first time trying chickpea Fettuccine. The advantages of having this dish are it’s made out of good kinds of carbs : complex carbs . They’re higher in fiber, they digest slower and help you feel fuller for longer.
The pasta itself was great in terms of taste and texture. Normally when you think about “organic “ you expect it to have a tasteless earthy texture when they’re cooked. But I was pleasantly surprised after making this dish. It maintains its shape well after cooking and tastes amazing too. Its a bit pricey in comparison to your usual pasta but for the quality and health benefits, its worth it!
Price – Rs.2200/=
4. Oat milk
For all my friends who’s in their weight loss journey, Definitely should try this oat milk. Because Oat milk is known for weight loss since it is a low fat , low sugar and low calorie beverage.
A few advantages of oat milk if I have to mention are that it’s a great source of Vitamin B, may lower bad cholesterol and great for bone health! It’s also a great choice for people with certain food allergies and intolerances as it’s naturally free of nuts , lactose and soy. This oat milk is equally delicious in your cup of tea or cereal.
Price – Rs.2300/=
5. Royal white Quinoa
Quinoa is a grain – like seed which has become popular all around the world not only due to its nutritional profile but also its unique , delicate texture and flavor. Quinoa has a slightly nutty flavor and is a good substitute for rice! It can also be ground into a flour for use in baking.
Suggested uses of this product are:
• As a substitute of rice
• Use as a base of salads or breakfast cereal • Bake into breads , crackers or desserts
I tried this out with my cereal and it was super light and fluffy and this type has the most versatility. White quinoa also has the mildest flavor!
6. Quinoa spirals
Quinoa spirals are naturally gluten free. It is a well suited dish for human nutritional needs and essential for a well balanced diet and wellness and also is a delicious penne pasta , perfect for your whole family !
This penne pasta is easy to cook and can make many different dishes using Alfredo Sauce, garlic & oil and even tomato sauce!
The main reason I loved this pasta was because it absorbed the sauce well.
What’s better than having your most favorite food that taste good and also good for your health? And that is why you should definitely try this product !
Price – Rs.1900/=
7. Vanilla Dreams
Vanilla is a common tea flavor that gives a slightly sweet , dessert – like taste to teas. They are tasty on their own.
I used one tea bag and made a normal plain tea and it tasted great with the smell of vanilla! You might need a lot of sugar if you’re a sweet tooth.
But in my opinion it might work better with milk and sweetener. (Price – Rs.500/=)
8. Greens Powder
Are greens powder good for you?
Green powders contain high levels of vitamin and minerals associated with maintaining a healthy immune system. It is also filled with fiber and minerals but also low in calories. Hence having green powder can have tremendous benefits , including helping with weight loss , promoting a healthy heart and reducing the risk of cancer!
However green powders are not a substitute for a well balanced diet and cannot replace the nutritional benefits you get from Whole Foods. But it is a great way to supplement a healthy diet with a boost of extra vitamins antioxidants.
There are a several ways to have your drink powder.
The most common way is to stir the powder into water , juice or milk and smoothies, before your workout , before you get to sleep or anytime of the day!
But if you’d rather not drink it , you can add your green powder to your omelette, or as I did you can make a simple healthy porridge for breakfast!
Price – Rs.3500/=
