We all aim to be healthy right?
I took up swimming before Christmas and stuck at it. I took it back up to allow my ankle to heal quicker and for my arm strength to improve, to make things easier for when I get back to kayaking and begin climbing.
I’m vegetarian so a big part of my diet is healthy. One of the challenges I face though, is finding things to eat on the go which will nourish me and fill me up. I’m partial to a pasty and in reality it does nothing more than nourish my mental hunger.
When I go off adventuring, I’ve to eat twice as much as my blood sugar drops rather quickly. I started to put porridge in my smoothies as they’re good energy releases and packing foods such as bananas which help with muscle recovery. I love making my own soups and even a few sweet treats but it’s always tempting to grab a chocolate bar from the local shop. My walking buddy is prone to feasting on well known chocolate brands only to find she slumps mid-hike!
Last year, I got a chocolate gift off my best friend for my birthday. It was when I was going through my gluten issues and so my lovely friend sought out Gorge Truffles – guilty free, organic eating.
I’d not had proper chocolate until I was gifted these. I’ve become addicted to them (in a healthy way) and they are my go to food when I’m out, especially adventuring (I need to put in a new order!) So why Gorge Truffles?
For one they’re handmade, secondly they’re much more satisfying and count towards your 5-a-day (the well known brand friend has converted) and last but not least they tick off nearly every intolerance free from box:
- Sugar free
- Dairy free
- Gluten free
- No yeast
- No preservatives
- No soya
- No egg
- No transfats, preservatives or colours
- Suitable for diabetics, coeliacs, paleo diets and vegans/vegetarians
Why am I telling you this?
Because I want you to try them for your own taste bud’s sake! Since it’s Valentine’s soon, I’ve hooked up with Gorge Truffles for you to be in with a chance to win a box of their special and delicious Valentine’s chocolates.
