New Fitness Brands to Try in 2017| SNS Hamper

This SNS Hamper, fitness edition, was the perfect way to kick start my summer. Over the last couple of years, fitness has become an integral part of my life, so, having the chance to try new and up and coming products was a right treat. As you can probably tell from the photos below, there were a lot of products in this hamper. From fitness supplements to nutritional ingredients, this hamper will sure show you that being healthy doesn’t have to be tasteless. So, without any further delay, let’s take a little look at what’s inside!

Firstly, we need to start with some of my favourite things in life, snacks! Nowadays, I don’t perceive snacking as a bad thing, as long as I don’t reach out for chocolate bars and crisps, snacking is a great way to keep your metabolism up. So, choosing your snacks wisely is incredibly important. Recently I have been trying out products from Taking The Pea (25% off discount code: 25OFFPEAS), Garbanzo, and Prana Protein. These products were delicious, but my favourites had to be these Prana protein bars! You can get 25% off Prana Protein products (plus free delivery) by using the discount code LOVEPRANA.

Discount Codes: 17% off at The Coconut Company (SUMMER17), 10% off at Indigo Herbs (INDIGOHAMPER2017), 15% off Sweet Revolution (TREATME), 22% off Mighty Matcha on Amazon here

Cooking and eating well is one of my favourite things to do, so to come across several nutritional cooking ingredients was like hitting the chef jackpot. These items from Indigo Herbs, Mighty Matcha, Arctic Power, The Coconut Company, and Sweet Revolutions are highly nutritional with a great source of vitamins and minerals. Recently I have become a huge fan of cooking with coconut oil (rather than using sunflower oil), and dressing salads with coconut vinegar. Matcha powder also tends to be extremely expensive, so to discover that you can get a pot from Mighty Matcha for only £8.99 was like music to my ears. I’m yet to try out the Organic Instant Turmeric Latte and Cranberry Powder on top of my morning oats, but I am very intrigued to give these a whirl so keep an eye out on my social channels!

Can we please take a moment to appreciate how cute the Fitivia packaging is. A few years ago, I was only a ‘PG Tips’ kind of girl, but more recently I have taken pleasure in discovery new teas. Personally, there is nothing more satisfying than seeing your fresh tea indulged in an infuser bottle; there’s something quite Starbucks about it. I’ve been having a cup of Fittea in the flavour Tropical for the last two weeks now and my body is starting to feel a lot more detoxed. This vitality high tea is great if you are looking to lose weight, boost your energy levels, and to keep well hydrated throughout the day. You can get 20% of by using the discount code ELTORIA20.

Fittea Tip: Make ice tea easily with the Detox Ice Tea Set! Using your summery Lemon Infuser, fill your Ice Tea Mug with a cup of wellness-boosting Tropical Detox Tea and some chopped fruit and ice… you can make dozens of fun, fruity combos!

Westlab Epsom Bathing Salt is an absolute saviour for many reasons. Not only does a few sprinkles in your bath have great benefits to your skin, like in-grown hairs, but it also helps with recovery after exercise. Soaking in Epsom salt baths after running or extensive training can help to prevent inflammation and irritation in your joints and muscles. You can also use Epsom salt to treat minor injuries like a sprained ankle too, so keeping a packet in your cupboards can prove to be extremely handy. Sibberi Maple Water on the other hand, contains more manganese than a cup of kale, so it is great if you are looking to build up your strength in the gym. Sibberi also stock birch water and bamboo water, so I’m pretty excited to try these out next.

In a recent post on fitness supplements, taking a BCAA drink during a workout helps to ensure that you are burning fat and not muscle, therefore, a BCAA Boost from Goddess Nutrition is the perfect product to keep in mind. Some BCAA powders do not taste very nice, however, this apple flavour is delicious. All you need to do is simply add a scoop of powder into a water bottle, shake well, and wallah, one tasting workout drink. After a good session in the gym, all you want is a good protein shake. This MissFits protein powder is what I call a very nutritional powder. Some powders are full of sugar, but this vanilla protein powder contains no sugar and it is also vegan. So, if you are looking for a protein powder that is good for you, take advantage of this 20% discount code: Simone20. You can also find a great shaker on the Blender Bottle website (10% discount code: sns17ds).

Products containing cricket flour is also something to keep an eye out for. Jimini’s bars contain cricket flour which is full of protein, iron, and calcium. These bars also contain dried fruit and almonds, making them a tasty and healthy treat.

Lastly, check out this box! Wellthos is a fitness subscription box where you can try out new healthy treats from the comfort of your own home. As you can see from the image above, each box comes a variety of different items; even some core sliders came in this month’s box! So, if you are someone like me (or know someone) that needs to spice up their food palette, give the Wellthos box a go. You can get 10% off by using the discount code: SN10.
