I guess there could be much worse things to be obsessed with, right? I’m really enjoying my health kick, even more so the weather is beautiful right now – seriously, who’s favorite season isn’t Spring?!
I started my healthy eating and exercise regime back in January as a New Years Resolution, so I’m pretty cuffed that 5 months down the line I’m still going strong and actually getting even more into it. Here are a few things I’ve recently been obsessed with in the health foods and supliments area:
- Meridian Peanut Butter
Okay, so this isn’t exactly as good as Skippy… but it definitely gives you your peanut butter hit. I brought this massive 1000g tub from Holland and Barratt for £5.99 and I really like the taste of this now I’ve forgotten what the bad peanut butter tastes like!
I love to spread this on de-cored slices of apple and sprinkle granola on top for a light post work out breakfast.
This isn’t exactly on the list due to its taste… it doesn’t taste of much but this stuff is amazing for you! Full of great fiber which will get your insides cleansed and thanking you for it!
I love to add flaxseed into green superfood smoothies or my protein shake.
- Chai Seeds
Again, another one that isn’t exactly a massive taste enhancer but it’s a great source of fiber, protein and omega 3.
I like to sprinkle mine over fruit and fiber cereal or even soak 2 tablespoons in 200ml of almond milk over night with a teaspoon of vanilla and tablespoon of yoghurt for a breakfast that tastes like rice pudding.
- Cod Liver Oil
High in Vitamin D and Omega 3, I like to take one tablet a day in the morning to help keep my brain on top form throughout the day.
- Protein Fat Loss Shakes
I’ve held off buying protein shakes for a while as I heard that some can actually be pretty bad for you (in terms of what they can do to your insides). But I came across The Bikini Blend on Instagram which is an all natural protein shake filled with power foods. As soon as I mixed my first scoop with almond milk I knew I would be hooked.
Since purchasing The Bikini Blend, I’ve decided to give Protein World’s ‘The Slender Blend’ a go. Admittedly, the controversy over their latest advertising campaign actually made me want to try it… I’m yet to start it and I’m planning on doing a full review once I’ve been on it for a month – so watch this space!
Let me know of any health foods or supplements you’re loving, I’d love to give some more great things ago.
