Introduction to my Reviews on Food Products

 ”To eat is a necessity, but to eat intelligently is an art.” La Rochefoucauld

This website isn’t just for people with food intolerances, allergies, IBS and other health related problems but also for people who are simply looking to lead a healthier lifestyle. If you aren’t feeling great after eating food you buy, you should really considering making different and smarter choices when you shop and there is a massive range of food alternatives available.

Everyone has their own personal reason for wanting to change their diet and lifestyle; mine was the desire to want to learn more about food and the different, positive and negative, effects it was having on my body.  By doing this I have been able to change my diet to fit around my sensitive stomach and food intolerances. The more aware I have become, the more control I have gained throughout my entire life and have found I can enjoy everything I like without suffering afterwards and in a healthier way.

A big part of changing your diet is changing the food products you get in to the habit of buying; this is where this part of the website aims to help. For whatever reason you are thinking of changing what you normally buy, it can be hard when faced with so many choices in the supermarket. In this section I will post clear, quick and honest reviews on products which I both recommend you to try and would suggest you avoid!

Hopefully it can be of help and I would love to hear your thoughts on any products you have tried and tested, both positive and negative.

Each review covers the following points:

  • Taste
  • Cost/value for money
  • Use
  • Nutrition
  • Marks out of ten

I do try and include everything I think you’d want to know but if you have any questions on anything I review then leave them below and I’ll be sure to get back to you!

Review – Lazy Day – Millionaires Shortbread

Millionaires shortbread always reminds me of when I used to get squares of it for desert when I was in primary school, there was hardly any shortbread at all, mostly just a thick layer of oozing caramel and an even thicker layer of chocolate, they were delicious but I certainly can’t get away with eating them every day after lunch anymore! These however are a slightly less guilty version still with lots of taste! [Read more...]

Review – Hale and Hearty – Pure Oat Flapjack Super Snack

I made my own delicious Power Packed Flapjacks recently and in the post spoke about how much I love flapjacks but unfortunately they are often packed with bad ingredients. However today I came across an exception to this in my local health food store with these Hale&Hearty flapjacks. [Read more...]

Johnny Cakes Recipe and Review of BabyCakes Cookbook by Erin Mckenna

I was given this book by a friend last Christmas. On my first flick through, all the pictures look delicious and I was torn over what to make first. This book is full of completely vegan recipes, along with most of them also being gluten and sugar free. [Read more...]
