Everybody loves a box full of goodies.

I would like to introduce you to EarlyBird TasteBox. 

EarlyBird is a dynamic company based in London, which is on a mission to deliver the best healthy snacks to you. The team is committed to provide you with fresh snacks, that bring people together through. This is also done through music and art. 

Eat Well.Play More is a motto that says it all if you ask me. 

 

I was delighted to be offered to review one of their boxes. I was impressed by the variety of the 5 healthy snacks. Inside your box you will also receive 2 bags of tea, a piece of art and a code to download a music track. Taking about having a bit of everything in a box. 

 

The little leaflet with the ingredients states a snack for each day of the week, but that was almost impossible in our home. The moment I open the packets, they literally disappeared within minutes. Most of the snacks were eat by my boys,but nevertheless  I managed to have little nibble and enjoy them.

In the box there were:

Bollywood Sticks- a lovely lightly spiced mix with chili and lime cashew nuts and roasted peas. 

Carrot Cake-a sweet combination of raisins, walnuts, almonds and orange sultanas. This was my boys favorite

BBQ Peas Shot -very tasty BBQ quoted peas

Pecan Pie– pecan nuts, sultanas and caramel fudge .One of my sons said “Mummy, that is so nice”

Salty Surprise-I love this wonderful mix of peanuts, corn and cashew nuts. 

The choice of tea was perfect as well. I love Chai tea and this one didn’t disappoint-the rich spicy and fruity flavor went perfectly well with the snacks.I did add a little bit of soy milk to it and it was simply divine.

The other tea was Peach Green Tea. I love peaches in any shape, form and even the colour peach is my favorite. So you can imagine how delighted I was to try this amazing combination of peach and green tea. I am now on a lookout to buy some more as I loved it. 

The EarlyBird Box gives you a music track, too and like most people I can not explain music or any form of art with words.

Art, being it music or paintings provides us with moments of relaxation in their own unique way.

We all live busy lives, aren’t we? Family life, now with a baby on a way getting closer and closer I am making the most of each morning while the boys are at school. In my mind the only way I can get through the “busyNess” of each day is to set proprieties and be honest with myself what I can and what I want to do. 

Listening to the music track from EarlyBird  Studios is a nice way to add a few more minutes for reflection to your day. 

EarlyBird have a loyalty scheme on top of all the other things, once you decide to start receiving your weekly box. Your 5th box will be half price and your 10th box free. 

Now you can order your first TasteBox for a £1, so feel free to hop over to EarlyBird website and give them a go, you are in for a treat.

choc chick chocolates

Welcome to all chocolate lovers!

Almost everybody loves chocolate. From all the people I know I can not think of one person who doesn’t enjoy some form of chocolate.

I think I know why “Chocolate is the foods of the Gods”.

Every time you take a bite of chocolate your taste buds send little tingling message to your brain that brings you some form of pleasure. Yes, and eating the Choc Chick Raw Chocolate truffles is a pleasure you can’t possibly measure. I was so excited to be given the opportunity to make and enjoy these little chocolate monsters. I had plenty of help while making them and overall the whole thing was a complete success. 

I love to see products that are vegan friendly, but also very balanced and healthy without compromising on taste and price. The market of luxurious chocolates, that are nutrient and free from additives and toxic ingredients is booming, as more and more people become aware of what is in their food and where it comes from. 

The chocolate truffles  are so easy to make -my boys had fun making them under my supervision.

2 of my sons helping me. You can notice the concentration in their faces. 🙂

I received the beautiful package and I was so looking forward to make it. I made it with the help of my 2  boys, while their older brother was comfortably reading the last book of the Harry Potter collection knowing that he, too would be enjoying them once they are made. Being involved in the making of the chocolate truffles gave my boys even more reasons to keep trying it to make sure it’s all going to plan and up to their taste. 

There are many ways to make anything unhealthy if you want to. But the experts in Choc Chick have created an amazing and nutrient dense snack for everyone to enjoy their own way. Here is why. 

 

 

choc chick chocolate kit

Make it your way with some hazelnuts, almonds and goji berries

The main ingredients in the kit are RAW and UNprocessed which keeps all the goodness and them and provides an incredible richness in flavour and pure satisfaction. You may already know that processed and cooked chocolate losses most of its nutrients and you have to eat a ton of it in order to feel the deep pleasant taste that a few raw chocolate truffles can provide. 

Raw cacao powder is known to boost your antioxidant and magnesium levels and also improve your mood. The fact that Choc Chick is made with raw cacao butter adds even more value to your chocolates. Whether you are vegan, like me,  or simply enjoy a good quality chocolate Choc Chick is for you. The cacao butter is what really adds the depth into the flavour of the truffles. I have had cacao butter before and it is like a silky deep elixir when mixed with the cacao powder and the sweetness. 
I do hope that you get a chance to try the Choc Chick Chocolates. If you live in UK they will be with you in a day or two.

The Choc Chick chocolate are made with “Sweet Freedom” another amazing sweetness that comes from nature but it is miles away from processed sugar.

The method couldn’t be easier. Melt the butter.Add the sweetness and the cacao powder.Mix well.Add some extras if you like. Place into molds.Voala! Nevertheless when you order your starter kit you will receive a booklet with 5 recipes ideas that will inspire you to make other nice things as well. 

 After the 20 minutes in the freezer we couldn’t wait to eat them. Here is how they turned out. Full of flavour and so so nice.

There they are all nice and shiny. Enjoy!

The truffles melt in your mouth and your taste buds are sent to chocolate heaven. The bonus of getting the starter kit is that I also have some of the raw cacao powder and the sweet freedom left and I am looking forward to make some hot chocolate drink for my boys and also make some chocolate cookies for all of us to enjoy.

I highly recommend you to go and visit the Choc Chick chocolate range.For a change this is a chocolate that is truly good for you! Enjoy! It’s too good to share 🙂
