YUM YUM YUM! I don’t usually buy flavoured or salted nuts as they are usually full of crap. Yep, additives and sugar. This pack from Brookfarm was delicious, flavoured with herbs + spices and sweetened with a little maple syrup. Highly recommend this range.

5. Thistle Be Good Couscous Moroccan with Currants
I couldn’t try this one out myself as I can’t have wheat but it looks like a great addition to the pantry to use as a side for a dinner dish or part of a tasty salad.

6. SunRice Mountain Blend
A colourful rice blend, so fun! And so much more nutritious than the plain old white rice. This blend gives texture to your dishes as well as a heap more goodness. I recommend swapping out the white rice for this and see how your family falls in love with it.

7. Henry Jones & Co Raspberry and Chia Seeds
SERIOUSLY???? AMAZING! I’m so impressed with this product. I actually haven’t seen anything like a chia jam that you can buy off the shelf. This means no harmful additives to make it gell, just real food, sweetened with fruit juice. It tastes incredible and you can be rest assured that your not filling your insides with bad-dies.
Its available at Coles & selected IGA & Woolworths stores www.facebook.com/henryjonesco
8. APPELLES Vitamin B5 Skin Lotion
A lotion with Vitamin B5 to combat aging by improving hydration, skin elasticity and skin softness. Sounds great right?

9. Pukara Estate Fig Balsamic Vinegar
Theres something about a bit of balsamic on your salad isn’t there? Its just gives it that bang of flavour and seems to enhance the taste of the greens. What a lot of people don’t know is that a dash of vinegar actually helps with digestion. Pukara estate make the most beautiful vinegar and this one is just gorgeous.
