Foodie Finds – August 2018

How are we at the end of August, already?! I feel like ever since uni ended for summer, that I haven’t actually stopped :’) Still, I’m feeling ready to go back and take on the third year! I’m also looking forward to September as it’s the start of new beggings (and my birthday! πŸ˜‰ I Found lots of goodies this month (mainly grenade products because I’m well and truly obsessed!). Let’s get into ittt…

Despite my love for grenade bars, I had never tried their shakes until recently. I purchased the cookies and cream and the fudge brownie shake, and they basically taste like the bar! I personally wasn’t keen on the cookies and cream shake, as I found it far too sweet but the fudge brownie one, on the other hand, is delish! I would definitely choose the bars over the shakes, but I get that it’s a convenient way to get your protein in.

2) Sour Cream & onion Quinoa Bites40479100_520616281730775_865848574896766976_n

I love finding healthy alternatives to crisps, and these do not disappoint. They are only 85 calories per pack, and yet taste so amazing. Quinoa flour is the main ingredient in them, giving them a slightly different texture to normal crisps…I rate them!

This looks way better than it tastes! I don’t think I’ll be repurchasing this one as it was too sweet or me. The vanilla is very overpowering, making it very sickly to eat. Although the texture is a lot softer, compared to the others, the cookies and cream will always have my heart :’)

4) Tan Rosie – aubergine and mushroom spread40444606_492000197982278_3487029448782381056_n

This stuff is so good! I first discovered Tan Rosie products at the Chilli Fiesta in August. I love how their products use such simple ingredients, yet the flavour is incredible. You can literally do anything with this product, I was having it on toast and mixing it through quinoa and spaghetti. I haven’t seen a foodie product like this, and I definitely think there is room for something like this on the market…good luck to the ladies who are running this!

Back at it again with another Grenade product :’). I had been wanting to try this bar for so long, and I wasn’t that pleased with it. I think the original grenade bars have set the standard so high that nothing can compare! It tastes very chocolatey, but I found it a bit too rich!

6) Nims Pineapple Fruit Crisps40525842_2107629889249869_6587183104127926272_n

I thought this was quite a novel way to get your five a day in, and so had to give them a go. The only ingredient is dried pineapple, that has been dried naturally. Although they are high in sugar (naturally occurring), with each bag containing 14g, they make a nice sweet snack that also counts towards one of your five-a-day.

Thank you for reading,
