New Goodlife Meals

I'm a huge fan of Goodlife products! Their French Bean & Spinach Sausages and Picador Parsnip & Sweet Carrot Nut Burgers feature heavily in my meal plan - I always have them in my freezer. When I heard about the new ready meals I couldn't wait to give them a try! I like to have regular meat free meals and being low in Syns too makes them the perfect freezer meal to have to hand.

My Muscle Foods Order

I have recently started using meat from Muscle Foods. They specifically sell lean meat in vaccum sealed packs and deliver straight to your door. They also stock some great Nut Butters! In my order I got Lean Mince, Chicken Breast, Lean Bacon, Lean sausages, Protein Pizza, Sweet Potato Wedges and 2 Nut Butters. Not only is it delivered to your door, it is also very good value for money compared to supermarket prices. If you want to place an order or check out their website you can find them here.

Muscle Foods Nut Butters

I received my first Muscle Foods order yesterday and couldn't wait to share these with you. Nut butters are so popular these days as they are very good for you, but often they are high in calories, so therefore high in syns. The Prutella has the taste of Nutella, but half the calories. Perfect if you want a Nutella fix, great for spreading, to add to porridge, or even added to quark. The Coconut Peanut is a Peanut Butter made with coconut oil. It has a lovely coconut taste to it and could be used the same way as the Prutella. You can get yours here. Muscle Foods also sell lean meat delivered direct to your door. I have a few recipes to follow using these nut butters.
