Inspiral Kale-Os (Tomato & Pizza Flavour) & Thanks To All Our Readers

Hello/Bonjour to our readers in the USA, Australia, Canada, France, and here in Blighty!  I just want to say a big thank you to everyone who has been reading the blog.  We relaunched the blog just two weeks ago, and since then it has been so exciting logging on every day and seeing how many hundred views we have had.  So thank you; we really doing appreciate you popping by our little corner of the internet.  I had a massive backlog of product reviews I wanted to do and the packaging pile is now at a manageable level of clutter so we might not be blogging quite as regularly!  However, we are hoping to be able to do some more in-depth posts now the Allergy Brothers are back at school and nursery.  Also I will have time to test some new recipes.  Finally, I really want to work on the accessibility and look of the website.  Plus, I need to finalise our big birthday surprise to celebrate the blog’s first birthday.  Busy times, but happy busy!

And now to the product review…

Ingredients: Curly kale (73%), Extra virgin olive oil (10%), Sundried tomatoes (6%), Deactivated nutritional yeast, Palmyra blossom nectar, Himalayan crystal salt, Lime juice, Basil, Tomato juice powder, Garlic, Black pepper, Oregano.

I wish the packaging hadn’t said kale crisps because that made me think of crisps!  In comparison with a slice of delicious, greasy, fried potato, these are disappointing.  The kale isn’t even that crisp.  However, if I wasn’t making that comparison then I would have been really happy.  They are flavoursome and tasty, while still being green and leafy.  In fact, I didn’t even use them as crisps.  I used them as a convenience food and mixed them with some rice and vegan cheese to make a quick meal.  A thing the packaging did get right though is that the crisps are packaged in special ecobags that can be composted at home.  So yay to Kale-Os as a superfood ready meal!

The Cool Chile Company

1436967680_290_335We find that Mexican food can be really good for gluten free eating. We buy fresh corn tortillas from the Cool Chile Company. The tortillas arrive in big vacuum packed bags that go straight in the freezer. We then peel off the individual tortillas as we want them. After a few minutes in a hot pan, we have fresh and warm tortillas. As far as I know the Cool Chile Company is the only place in the UK to buy fresh tortillas. www.coolchile.co.uk
