So I get sent quite a lot of food, supplements and different gym related bits and pieces to try out but I only give little shout outs to the ones that I LOVE.
This week I was lucky enough to receive packages from some amazing Irish businesses and here were my definite favourites amongst the bunch:
These are perfect for on-the-go lunches- I keep my diet low carb but these are very easily digested and the macros are quite decent too- and for those on a calorie restricted diet, they come in between 99-130 calories.
Chia Oil is a natural Omega 3 supplement that is derived by cold pressing 100% chia (Salvia Hispanica L) seeds. These small vegan-friendly capsules give all the benefits of Omega 3 ALA in an easy to swallow, plant based format that has no smell or after-taste
Each serving gives 1200mg of Omega 3 ALA which contributes to the maintenance of normal blood cholesterol levels (fat is good for you!) and supports a healthy heart.
So yes, another Chia bia entry for this week- so delicious over my porridge this morning and tastes like Christmas. See above for the amazing health benefits of Chia seeds!
Dr. Zak’s Peanut Butter from Discount Supplements
I just can’t even begin to explain this- peanut butter, raspberries, whey protein. Heaven. just do it.
Pre-workout treats from Discount Supplements
Let’s just say there MAY have been some P.B.’s after these bad boys haha! I don’t take pre-workout unless I feel I really need it as my sessions in the gym are only an hour. If i’m on holidays though I’ll always take some and then re-hydrate with some electrolytes.
