Green tea itself I find to be a tad unpleasant. I personally enjoy the green tea blends. Green tea with the addition of other flavours to enhance the drink. Ingredients like orange peel, cinnamon, and blueberry ginseng are blended with green tea leaves giving the tea a delicious and enhanced overall flavour.
Whatever flavour fits your fancy, try to avoid overdoing it with sweeteners or creamers. The flavoured blends are so subtle and wonderful that they're best when consumed as is. Also, adding sugar or creamers / milks will increase the calorie / sugar content as well. I'm telling you, the flavoured varieties really don't need a thing. If you find that you MUST sweeten the tea, opt for a drizzle of all natural honey or pure maple syrup for a cleaner, natural sweetness.

Introducing their Three Cheese and Spinach pockets. These pockets contain absolutely no artificial flavours or colours and are baked over being fried prior to being frozen for sale. They are filled with spinach, mozzarella, parmesan, and provolone cheeses along with a delicious and flavourful tomato sauce. The crust of the pocket always bakes up wonderfully and has a lovely, crispy texture.
Remember my tip; when frozen foods like this offer both microwave and oven directions, the oven is the only way to go! Don't be tempted by a quicker cook time in the microwave because the resulting crust is slightly wet and not crispy like it is out of the oven. ALWAYS go for the oven!
Look for these in the frozen pizza section of your local grocery store! Follow the link below for all the information about this product straight from the McCain website!
There is a stigma around canned / frozen veggies and fruit that they are inferior to their fresh counterparts but this is not necessarily the case.
With most fruit and veg, they begin to lose nutrients the second they are picked / removed from their roots and unless the produce is grown locally, it likely travels quite a distance to get to your supermarket. During its travels, it's losing valuable nutrients not to mention freshness and flavour. Why is this important?
Frozen fruit and veggies are a wonderful alternative to fresh, especially during the winter months when fresh produce is likely being imported. Frozen produce is picked and frozen at peak retaining its nutrients which is most important!
I've attached a link of 11 fruits and veggies that are potentially better to buy frozen than fresh. Knowledge is power especially when it comes to getting the very best out of your produce.
The moral of this post is simple, don't be afriad of frozen produce! If it's not in season, it's not usually the best of the best in terms of quality so it might be better to opt for a frozen variety!
Cacao and Cocoa come from the same bean and start off exactly the same. The only difference between the two is the process to prepare them. Cacao is as pure as it gets and receives little to no processing retaining all of its antioxidants and minerals. Cocoa on the other hand is heated prior to packaging. Surprisingly, cocoa retains much of its antioxidants as well and is still extremely beneficial to our bodies.
