The silly season is upon us. And I think most of us can agree that is can be a difficult time of year to be healthy and eat well, as there are simply too many temptations all around.

Having two toddles means I'm constantly on the go, always something to do, toys to tidy up, nappies to be changed, or washing to be washed, hung or folded. It's never ending. But thankfully I've more or less managed to get my two boys to take a nap at about the same time each afternoon. And when they do, it's Mummy's Time, where I can relax (and catch up on blogging and emails), and enjoy a cuppa and a snack - I usually eat my lunch with my boys, which is normally not long after 11am, so by 2pm, hunger (and tiredness too) starts to set in, and I do look for a snack.

But lately I've been enjoying some snacks from Isowhey with a good conscience. These Isowhey snacks are gluten, dairy and soy free and contain no artificial colours, flavours or sweeteners.

The Isowhey Superfood Snack range is huge. As a coffee addict, I've been particularly enjoying the Coffee and Raspberry snacks which contain freeze dried ground roasted Arabica coffee, and raspberries to add antioxidants, vitamin C and fibre, as well as raisins for a touch of sweetness as well as cacao. These dark cocoa coffee raspberry chews are so delicious. I love that they are not overly sweet, yet the intense coffee and cacao also means that they are very satisfying, so when the packaging suggests that a serving is two squares, then this really is sufficient.

I've also been loving the Maca and Walnut snacks, which along with the nuts, seeds and grains, also contain Maca which is rich in amino acids, B vitamins, iron, calcium and sterols, and whole walnuts, which adds a lovely crunch and lots of monounsaturated and omega-3 fats. Finally these also contain dates, which adds a lovely natural sweetness to the snacks. I really love nuts, so these are so nice.

The Kale and Lime are loaded with kale which contains a massive 45 different flavonoids with antioxidant benefits, vitamin K, fibre and omega-3, lime which is high in vitamin C while also adding flavonoid compounds and antioxidants, and finally apple for its pectin, polyphenols and antioxidants and not least natural sweetness. I love all types citrus, both scent and taste, so needless to say that I love these slightly zesty snacks. I guess they do have slightly unique flavour, but personally I can't get enough of them.

Then there's the Brown Rice Protein Snack Balls which are available in several varieties, including Dark Chocolate and Goji or Dark Chocolate, Banana and Baobab. These little packs contain 4 protein balls, which are loaded with nutritious, antioxidant-rich ingredients including dates, dark chocolate, coconut, pepitas, goji berries or banana, chia seeds and wholegrain brown rice protein - and each small pack will give you a huge

which will give you 5.8g of protein to help you satisfy hunger and cravings between meals. And they really are more-ish, although, again, one serving of the 4 balls, is more than sufficient. My personal favourite of these are the Dark Chocolate and Goij flavour.

I really enjoy these snack options from Isowhey, and love that I eating a healthier alternative that is not loaded the artificial colours or flavours, but rather I get an additional dose of proteins, vitamins, and antioxidants. And they are so delicious that you wouldn’t' even know they're classified as health foods!! I highly recommend that you check them out!
