The first month of the new year has come to a close and we have been easing our way into it with a few new exciting and useful products. Here are our January Favourites.
Planet Organic Lemon Rawkin’ Roons
Bite size sweet and citrusy raw macaroons with a chewy texture and hint of coconut flavour, these little snacks are made from just coconut, coconut sugar, fresh lemon juice, coconut oil, almonds and vanilla and have brightened grey days and kept us powering through.
Organic Traditions Black Sesame Seeds
Organic Traditions aim to empower individuals to live a healthier more fulfilling life by providing certified organic, non GMO, nutrient dense superfoods and other plant based products from around the globe. Their products are always great quality and their black sesame seeds are the best we’ve tried. Sweet and nutty, they make excellent tahini.
Waitrose Organic Frozen Berry Mix
These 300 g punnets of organic raspberries, blackcurrants and blackberries have made their way into our smoothies, porridge, ice cream and raw desserts on a daily basis this month. Packed full of vitamin C, antioxidants and omega 3s these have kept us healthy and happy throughout January.
Algamar Organic Nori Flakes
We are huge fans of Algamar’s sustainability efforts and production processes and as expected, their nori is of a superior quality. Flakes that quickly absorb water to become soft, silky strips of seaweed, they taste wonderful with only a hint of saltiness. Perfect in salads, noodle dishes and topping crackers, we cannot get enough of this super nutritious seaweed.
Vivoo Organic Raw Tavoletta
We recently reviewed Vivoo’s organic raw chocolate range and are now happily indulging in their 73% dark chocolate tavoletta. Essentially a giant chocolate bar made of cacao paste, cacao butter and coconut sugar, this makes the ultimate hot chocolate, melted into boiling almond milk and swirled with a little maple syrup.
Ecover Dishwasher Rinse Aid
The struggle to find great performing eco and non toxic cleaning products has diminished in the last few years as more products come to market that offer high performance. Not tested on animals and fully biodegradable, this dishwasher rinse aid does its job perfectly, leaving glasses streak free, residue completely removed and kitchenware clean looking and feeling.
NoStik Silicone Pastry Mat
UPDATE: We no longer recommend cooking with silicone after further research into the health implications.
This dual use baking and pastry mat works so well we cannot believe we haven’t always used one. Completely eliminating the use for greaseproof and baking paper, these mats are made from non stick silicone that work as an anti slip work surface and non stick oven mat.
Little Soap Company Organic English Lavender Handsoap
A beautifully fragrant and highly cleansing hand wash that leaves hands moisturised, this liquid soap is long lasting, made with organic essential oils as well as coconut and sunflower and free from synthetic fragrances, detergents, SLS, alcohol, parabens, sorbates, silicones, sulphates and palm oil.
Odylique Organic Lemon Butter Hand Smoothie
This super hydrating and delicious smelling hand cream is designed to provide pro collagen support as well as sooth, regenerate and tone skin. Made from aloe vera juice, coconut, ccoa bean butters, cold pressed avocado and sunflower oils, calendula, rosemary, sea buckthorn and vanilla, this creamy formula nourishes skin, absorbs well and is good enough to eat.
Soveral Forever Young Organic Face Oil
One of the most amazing face oils we have come across, this really does make skin look younger. Freshening, toning and tightening while soothing and calming, this beautifully fragrant oil is a combination of antioxidant rich, vitamin packed oils that regenerate, protect and detoxify skin layer by layer.
