Foodspring clear whey protein powder review – Our honest thoughts on this interesting protein product

By Finn H | January 16, 2024 | 0 Comments

We buy and review a lot of products for You Well, and we’re quite often left feeling underwhelmed by what we’ve bought. So when we buy a product which is genuinely great, it’s a lovely feeling. That’s exactly how we feel after trying the clear whey protein powder from Foodspring. We’ve tried a number of clear protein powders and even…

How long it’ll take your jelly to set (and how you can make it set faster)

By Finn H | January 14, 2024 | 0 Comments

We love to eat jelly, not just because it’s tasty and wobbly, but also because it can actually be quite a healthy snack (especially if you choose a sugar free jelly). But if there’s one thing that we don’t like about jelly, it’s having to wait for it to set. The setting time of jelly largely depends on the type…

SimplyCook review – Our honest thoughts on this recipe box service

By Finn H | January 12, 2024 | 0 Comments

Everybody wants to eat better and healthier, but the number 1 reason why most people will resort to takeaways and ready meals is lack of time. It just feels so much easier to order food on an app or bung something in the microwave instead of chopping up veggies and actually having to cook something. However, meal kit delivery companies…

FS-Greens – Our full review of this popular greens powder

By Finn H | January 10, 2024 | 0 Comments

There are so many greens powders out there that it can be hard to know which to choose – the truth is that although we’ve found greens powders that we really love, we’ve also tried lots which are basically just bags of spirulina with not much else added. FS-Greens is a greens powder product that has been making waves on…

Cheese that’s packed with protein – 3 we love

By Finn H | January 7, 2024 | 0 Comments

It’s always nice to get a protein boost from foods that you don’t expect them from, which is why so many of our guides are about products like this, such as high protein cereal and high protein yoghurt. Because cheese is typically made from cows’ milk, it’s usually quite high in protein already. But there are actually cheeses out there…

Trip CBD drinks – Our full review of these popular CBD drinks

By Finn H | January 6, 2024 | 0 Comments

It’s official – CBD has gone mainstream. This cannabinoid, which is derived from the cannabis plant, was for a long time misunderstood and unfairly regarded as a bit of a fad. But as the industry has become more regulated we’ve seen CBD brands have to step up their game and create products which are actually good, meaning more people are…

Optimum Nutrition Serious Mass – Our full honest review of this mass gainer

By Finn H | January 6, 2024 | 0 Comments

It’ll sound strange to people who feel like they can just look at a slice of cake and gain 1kg, but some people really struggle to gain weight. This could be for a variety of reasons – perhaps they’ve got a very fast metabolism, or perhaps they do a lot of exercise. For people like this, mass gainers can be…

4 great clear protein powders to try for a light & refreshing protein boost

By Finn H | January 3, 2024 | 0 Comments

If you want to build muscle, then sufficient protein intake is a must – recent studies suggest around 1.6g per kg of bodyweight is ideal. That’s quite a lot of protein, and you might have a hard time getting that amount of protein from food alone. That’s why we love protein powders – you can get a solid amount of…

Daemon Power The Ultimate Green Powder – Our full honest review of this product

By Finn H | January 3, 2024 | 0 Comments

In our quest to get all of our nutrients from drinks instead of food (because we don’t really like vegetables), we’ve been trying a lot of greens powders recently. Some of these greens powders have been excellent, whereas some really haven’t been. What seems to separate the good greens powder from the bad is the breadth of ingredients – it’s…

The best CBD oil you can buy – 6 great options that we love

By Finn H | January 3, 2024 | 2 Comments

There have been hundreds of studies which have demonstrated the plethora of therapeutic benefits of cannabis-derived molecules, and CBD has become the latest well-being trend. CBD is known to interact with the Endocannabinoid System which is a regulator of all bodily processes in the body; from repair, sleep, pain, and mood. We wanted to round up the best CBD oils…

There are lots of great greens powders out there, and we think that what makes a great green powder is a great mix of nutrient-dense ingredients. We recently tried the Aduna Super Greens Advanced Superfood Blend green powder, and we were very impressed, so we decided it was worthy of a complete review. In this review, we’ll be taking a…

Naturya Green Superblend – Our full honest review of this greens powder

By Finn H | January 1, 2024 | 0 Comments

We’ve tried several excellent greens powders, and been impressed by many of them. But our only criticism would be that a few of them are a bit too expensive for our liking, usually because they’re so packed with ingredients. That’s why it’s great to have an option like the Naturya Green Superblend – because this green powder only contains 5…

3 excellent sea moss supplements to try if you want to enjoy the benefits of this superfood

By Finn H | December 30, 2023 | 0 Comments

We like to visit our local Holland & Barrett store often (too often, actually. You should see how many points we have), and whenever we see a new supplement on the shelf, we always like to try it. On a recent trip, we spotted not 1 but 3 different sea moss supplements, and not knowing what sea moss is or…

Battle of the own-brand corn flakes – which corn flakes are the best?

By Finn H | December 28, 2023 | 0 Comments

In my quest to become a thought leader in the cereal space – the kind of person that Mr Kellogg might invite around for Christmas – I’ve taken it upon myself to eat a lot of cereal this year. I’ve been starting every day with a bowl of the stuff, not just because it’s much more convenient and cheaper than…

Using baking potatoes to make mashed potato – an experiment gone right

By Finn H | December 16, 2023 | 0 Comments

I fancied some mashed potatoes today, but when I nipped into my local Sainsbury’s, all I could find was a bag of baking potatoes (pictured, and yes, that is my Oodie). I could have gone to the big Tesco a bit further away, but I thought I’d try mashing these baking potatoes to see if they made for a good…

Why haven’t coffee bags changed the world?

By Finn H | December 8, 2023 | 0 Comments

I tried a variety of coffee bags recently, and enjoyed all of them. I’ll admit though, it does feel a bit weird to use them, and I thought it would be interesting to explore why that is. Coffee bags are confusing because, if you closed your eyes and did a blind taste test, most of us wouldn’t be able to…

You probably need more fibre. Here are 3 ideas to try which might help you

By Finn H | December 6, 2023 | 0 Comments

The NHS recently upped its recommended daily intake of fibre from 20g per day for an adult to 30g per day, but the truth is that most of us get nowhere near that. This is despite how important fibre is, helping us with everything from constipation to blood sugar control. We think that a big part of the reason why…

5 cereals that are high in calcium

By Finn H | November 29, 2023 | 0 Comments

Calcium is a nutrient that helps you build strong bones and teeth, but it’s also a nutrient that many of us don’t get enough of. According to the NHS, the recommended daily intake of calcium is 700mg per day for adults, which is quite a bit higher than most people realise. If you’re a vegan, it’s extra important to be…
