New Healthy Eating Super Foods

In a bid to lose weight as well as make my day to day diet a lot healthier, I’m always keen to try foods with added benefits, whether it’s added vitamins or a lower calorie version of something, then I’m keen to try as it makes my life easier to ensure I eat a balanced diet as well as not indulging in too much fatty food!

I tried New Jordan’s Lighter Granola.  Available in two flavours, I tried the Raspberry and Apple.  It also comes in Strawberry and Blueberry.  With 30% less fat that normal granola varieties, no added salt and high in fibre, it sounds like the ideal cereal.jordansSo what did it taste like?  Well it tastes just as crunchy as normal Jordan’s granola and had lots of raspberry and apple pieces.  I really enjoyed it with natural yoghurt and being quite calorie conscious at the moment I know this is a healthier choice to have at breakfast time.  My daughter Miss M asked to try some and had a bowlful with milk.  Her words were “Mmmm, I love granola, it’s delicious!”


P1000358I’m not a black tea drinker but have always been fond of green tea, particularly one with added citrus flavours, so was keen to try the new Tetley Super Green Tea with Lime.  It has added vitamin B6 to boost your mood, helping to reduce tiredness and fatigue.  I absolutely loved drinking these and found them the perfect pick me up in the afternoons.  They distracted me from eating and I can genuinely say I did feel more alert afterwards.  I have managed to drink the entire box of 20 teabags rather quickly and am keen to purchase more although have to say I’m P1000357-001struggling to find them having checked out three of the major supermarkets.  There are other variants in the Super Green Tea range such as Berry Burst and Tropical etc which I have seen available but not the Lime option.



V8 Vegetable Juice is WP_010401100% vegetables, containing tomatoes, celery, carrot, beetroot, parsley, lettuce, watercress and spinach.  With a 150ml glass containing 1 of your 5 a day and only 26 calories, what a simple way to boost your vegetable intake.  The glass of V8 tastes rich, thick, smooth and mainly like a tomato juice.  The other vegetables don’t really come through in the taste which I guess is down to personal taste as to whether you would like to taste them or prefer a plain tomato juice with added benefits.  All in all, a simple way of sneaking an extra portion of your 5 a day into your diet!

V8 V Fusion Fruit and Vegetable Juice – Review

V8 V Fusion is the new drink that contains two of your five a day.  One 250ml glass full contains one serving of fruit and one serving of vegetables. With no artificial flavours, colours, preservatives or additives, just 100% fruit and vegetable juice this is a great way to get some extra nutrients during the day, these being a particularly excellent source of vitamin C.

V8 V-Fusion juices are full of fruit flavours and combine the perfect blend of 100% natural fruit and vegetables. There’s never been an easier – or tastier – way to enjoy your five-a-day.



V8 Fusion is available in two variants, we tried the Passion fruit, Mango & Carrot juice which we found to be refreshing and enjoyable to drink.  You’d never think that one glass full contained both a portion of fruit and a portion of vegetable.  The juice was quite light to drink, not heavy as I expected and this makes the perfect way to boost your nutrient content in the day and sneak in some extra portions of your five a day. 

Also available is Raspberry & Beetroot which I think sounds really nice and one I would be intrigued to try.  Why not try V8 Fusion yourself and give yourself that daily fruit and veg boost?
