I love spending most of my Sunday mornings or afternoons in Starbucks, enjoying time with my family chilling, eating and writing.
I’d recently seen the adverts for the new ‘Super Scrambled Eggs’ with Tomato & Spinach and today I thought I’d give it a whirl.
The box is certainly smaller than I thought it would be, I was thinking it would be bigger and served on a plate for some reason but we are in Starbucks after all and not at home.
From the packaging it looked good and its best served hot so I waited for only a few moments before tucking in.
When I opened the box it looked good and like it would be tasty so I was ready to dive in.
The egg was soft and fluffy and there was definitely a taste of garlic with the sun dried tomatoes, probably a little too overpowering for me, I felt it took away some of the other tastes but the sun dried tomatoes did add that slight and subtle sweetness to it.
Overall I enjoyed it but it was a small portion size for me, I had it for lunch and to be honest it didn’t fill me, it was more like a snack but by reading the packagaing its to “Start your day off” so I’m guessing its more a breakfast meal.
Serving size contains;
- Kcal 211
- Protein 14g
- Fat 14g
- Carbs 6.9g
Suitable for Vegetarians.
I love trying new protein snacks to get a bit of variety with food and I love almonds so I thought I’d give this Bounce Energy Ball – Almond Protein Hit ago.
I never know what to expect with these type of snacks. When I opened the packet I thought it looked nice, not very ball shaped though it was more like a square, should have been called an energy square but it didn’t disappoint.
You can definitely taste the almond, it reminds me of eating frangipane and I love frangipane!
It’s nice and sweet but not too sweet, chewy and crunchy on the outside but softer on the inside.
Per 49g ball there’s 12g of protein but 216kcal.
I always find the calories tend to be quite high with these type of snacks, so will be limiting how many I have to stay within my weekly macronutrients goal but definitely will be having one again.
So far think this is my favourite energy ball ⭐️
I thought I’d give these Trek Oat Protein flapjack bars a go as they were on offer on Ocado.
I’m always looking for snacks I can have easily on the go, which fit nicely in my work bag and feel like I’ve had a bit of a treat while everyone else feasts on biscuits and cakes in my meetings.
Ok so it’s not like having homemade flapjack (Which i love!) but the Cocoa Oat bar did have a bit of a sweet taste to it, it is quite filling and a nice afternoon (Or morning) snack with a cuppa.
It’s a little hard to chew on but I can live with that, I won’t be having them too many times a week and no more than once a day as they are quite high in calories for a snack and I want to stay within my weekly macronutrients goal but definitely worth a try if your also looking for a little something different in an afternoon.
