Introducing our marvellous May box!

❤️️ Hello to our marvellous May Lifebox worth over £40 ❤️️

Welcome to your Lifebox!

Did you know that roughly 70% of your immune system is housed in your gut? Pretty crazy right!

We are coming to learn more everyday about how crucial gut health & a happy microbiome is to our daily & long-term wellbeing. Known as the ‘second brain’, our gut microbiome plays a key role in both our physical and mental health.

Stress has a huge impact on our wellbeing, but also the wellbeing & diversity of our gut bacteria. So, this month, we have really focused on supporting your gut microbiome & immune system as we re-enter a kind of ‘normal’.

In this box you will find a full week course of Symprove Probiotic worth £14.5 (best taken first thing on an empty stomach), Fight Vitamin Immunity Gummies and Teapigs Matcha Turmeric Lattes that are packed full of antioxidants!

You will also find lots of tasty fibre-rich snacks that you will love (your microbiome will too!) including Nudie Cauli Crisps, Love Corn, Urban Fruit, Honest Bean & Evolved.

Spice up your mornings with Bottleshot and dinners with Lucy’s Dressings & Manomasa

Introducing our amazing April Lifebox!

❤️️ Hello to our amazing April Lifebox worth £40 ❤️️

Normality is that you?
 
As we approach the Summer and lockdown life slowly eases, it feels so far-fetched that soon we’ll be able to visit restaurants, sit in a cinema and socialise in a larger number than 6.
 
The last year has changed us all in so many different ways & you’re not alone if you’ve adjusted to a new ‘normal’ that sees life operate at a slower pace.
 
So our amazing April box was curated with stress management & relaxation in mind, as life gradually returns to normal.
 
It was also curated with Easter in mind, because we all deserve some chocolatey goodness to celebrate the long weekend & return of Spring!
 
Find Virtue for an energy boost, Better You for immune system support, JinJin for a happy gut, Good Mood Co for the perfect day and Tribe, Tonys Chocolonely and Soopergood for that cacao fix! 
 
We hope you love your box!
 
Lots of love, Alicia xx

Veggie Peanut Soup by Manilife

Veggie Peanut Soup by Manilife

You’ll find a full size Jar of Manilife Peanut Butter in our Feb Lifebox!

Haven’t got your box yet? Get it here!

SERVES: 2

Veggie Peanut Soup by Manilife

Mmm hearty & delicious, this nourishing soup is the perfect quick lunch when you need something to fuel you through your day!

Ingredients

1L of Vegetable stock
500ml water
1 medium red onion, chopped
2 tbsp diced fresh ginger
4 cloves garlic, cut in small pieces
1 tsp salt
1 bunch of kale, chopped into strips 100g of Manilife Peanut Butter
3.5 tablespoons of tomato paste
Hot sauce
Handful of chopped peanuts, for garnish Cooked brown rice, for serving (optional)

Method

Combine the broth and water in a pot and bring to boil.

When it starts simmering add in the onion, ginger, garlic, and salt. Cook on medium-low heat for 20 minutes.

In another bowl (heat-safe) combine the peanut butter & tomato paste.

Add the 500ml of hot stock to the bowl – this will help smoothen the PB/tomato paste, so you need to mix it well.

Once smooth add it back to your pot and stir.

Add in the kale and if you want it hot, add in some chilli flakes or hot sauce!

Once everything has been added, let everything simmer for another 10-15mins (depends it you want your kale crunchy or not!).

Taste it and add more seasoning if needed.

This recipe is tastiest when served over cooked brown rice!

Finally, if you have some peanuts, chop them and sprinkle on top. Yum!

Bircher Muesli by Rude Health

You’ll find a full size box of gluten-free coconut muesli in our January Lifebox!

Haven’t got your box yet? Get it here!

Once there was a Doctor, who all night long dreamt of breakfast. That’s because he’d made it the night before, and it was chilling so that the ingredients became deliciously soft and digestible. His name was Dr Bircher. Although you can buy instant Bircher Muesli nowadays, this recipe pays respect to Dr Bircher’s Swiss levels of organisation.

SERVES: 2

TIME: Overnight + 5 mins prep

INGREDIENTS

150ml Rude Health Oat or Almond Milk

1 apple or pear, grated

90g gluten-free coconut muesli

60ml apple juice

1 tsp cinnamon

2 tbsp sesame seeds

2 tbsp rose petals (optional)

150g blueberries

METHOD 

  1. Grate the apple and mix with the milk, muesli, apple juice and cinnamon.
  2. Cover and place in the fridge overnight.
  3. Chop the walnuts and mix with the pumpkin seeds.
  4. Serve the overnight Bircher Muesli with the sesame seeds, rose petals and blueberries.
  5. Enjoy!

Rhubarb, Ginger and Thyme Crumble by Sweetpea Pantry

Vegan Ginger, Thyme and Rhubarb Crumble by 

@thewrightfoodie

Sweetpea Pantry is back! After receiving such incredible feedback from their feature last year, it only felt right to invite them back with their deliciously wholesome flapjack mix.

Haven’t got your box yet? Get it here!

This delicious Vegan Ginger, Thyme and Rhubarb Crumble is the perfect way to end a festive meal, or even as a slightly indulgent breakfast! We’re hooked!

Ingredients:

For the topping:

  • 1 x pack of Sweetpea Pantry Super Oat Flapjack
  • 30g Coconut Sugar
  • 40g Pumpkin Seeds
  • 40g Sunflower Seeds
  • 115g Coconut Oil (softened not melted)
  • 1 tsp Ground Ginger

For the middle: 

  • 350g Chopped Rhubarb
  • 4 tsp Coconut Sugar
  • 2 tsp Ground Ginger
  • A few sprigs of fresh Thyme (using this herb just takes the recipe to the next level)

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 18oc
  2. Mix together all of the topping ingredients either by hand, or very gently in a blender.
  3. Chop the Rhubarb into 1 cm pieces and toss with the coconut sugar, ground ginger and thyme sprigs.
  4. Either place the rhubarb in one large pie dish or in separate smaller ramekins (I tend to make individual portions and freeze them, so I have a great dessert on tap).
  5. With your fingers, crumble the topping mixture evenly over the rhubarb.
  6. Bake in the oven for 30 minutes until top is lightly browned and bubbling.
  7. Serve with topping as desired – we love ours with coconut yoghurt
  8. 8. Tip: If freezing some, bake those for 20 minutes only and allow to cool before placing in a ziplock bag and put in the freezer. Defrost fully before putting back in the oven for another 20 mins.

HEALTH FACT

Did you know that there are a total of 21 amino acids that our body needs to build all of the vital proteins?

8 of these 21 acids (tryptophan, isoleucine, valine, methionine, leucine, lysine, phenylalanine, threonine) are among the essential amino acids that our body cannot produce itself and that we have to supply to our bodies through diet. The good news is: nucao contains all 8 essential amino acids.

 

Our Fantastic November Box!

Welcome to the November Lifebox!

While in general I enjoy these colder days spent enjoying the cosy comforts of home, I don’t know about you, but I often find myself exhausted around this time of the year. 

It feels eternally dark outside and even going for a quick walk just doesn’t sound that appealing.

It’s actually very common to struggle with sleep & experience a lower mood during the Winter months. Why? We actually need daylight (& sunlight) to help regulate our Circadian Rhythm. Sunlight also triggers the release of Serotonin – our happy neurotransmitter, and of course Vitamin D.

So, what’s the solution? When you wake up, try to open all your curtains and get as much light into your eyes as possible straight away. If you can go for a pre-work or lunchtime walk outside to do some gentle stretches, this will definitely help!

I know that the weather sometimes won’t allow for this, so we’ve included some helpful goodies in this month’s box to support our bodies & mind during Winter. Including the fabulous Linwoods Flax with Vitamin D & Probiotics and Jetfuel Rest Sachets which value at £20.

You’ll also find Westlab Muscle Spray to help revive tired muscles and aid relaxation, Virtue Drinks for some natural energy if you’re feeling groggy and Chescots Porridge Pots & the Coconut Collab to get your day off to a flying start.

Of course, the box is also packed with handy on the go snacks including POP Peanut Bar, The Protein Ball Co, Shore Seaweed Crisps, Nucao, Miso Tasty, Mister Freed and Teapigs. We hope you love your box!

Lots of love, Alicia xx

Our Incredible October Box!

Welcome to the October Lifebox!

Autumn is fully under way and we’re starting to brace for colder weather and darker days! I’m a huge fan of October – not just because it’s my birthday month – but also because it’s a great excuse for cosy jumpers and hot baths.

As we enter into the colder months of the year, our immune system has to work extra hard to ward off any unwanted germs or bugs that thrive in the chillier weather.

That’s why this month’s Lifebox is an ode to Autumn Wellbeing and we’ve kitted it out with some amazing brands that will help keep you feeling your best as winter approaches.

Starting with an essential nutrient for our immune systems and supporting our mood which can nosedive during darker days – Vitamin D! In this box you’ll find the amazing Better You Vitamin D Spray – take this daily underneath your tongue to feel the effects! You’ll also find the fantastic JetFuel Botanical Blend Tea that comes in three varieties – Immunity, Energy & Rest – & we’re here for all of them!

A very special feature is Phytality Ultana Phytoplankton – one of the most nutrient dense foods on the planet! It is rich in omega 3 and contains a whopping 75 essential nutrients. Check out their recipe on page 4 & 5 to find out how to incorporate it into your daily diet.

We also have lots of gut loving goodies to keep your microbes happy including Quinola, Remedy Kombucha, Pimp my Salad & Great British Porridge Co.  

Then of course a few sweet treats, because what is a Lifebox without some – the BRAND NEW Ombar Praline Bar, Dormens, Raw & Wild Pili Nuts and Bepps!

I hope you love your box!

Lots of love, Alicia xx
