Yogabars: Eat Better, Feel Better, Be Better

I guess we all have the habit of binging on snacks during the day (snacks, by the way, is a reference to chips, biscuits and all food items termed oily and unhealthy yet delicious!). There are a lot of protein bars/snack bars/cereal bars in the market, the aim of these products being to help us eat healthy and give up on binge eating. However its not as easy as it sounds right? I never reach out to these products in the supermarket. Their packaging never makes me fall in love with them and crave to try them out. The very thought of digging my teeth into a cereal bar makes me go and reach out for a bar of chocolate and i end up purchasing all the food that i am not supposed to snack on. I came across a new product which made me want to give it a try: Yogabars was kind enough to send me few of their delicious yet healthy snack bars and I was blown away by the quality, quantity, pricing and packaging of the product. They have two variants: Snack bars and Protein Bars ; so you could make the right choice !

What The Company Claims:

Yogabars contain whole grains, cereals, nuts,dried fruits and seeds blended with the sweetness of honey, natural spices and extracts to give you delicious flavours. The Nutrition profile of Yogabars are designed to be the perfect snack. The bars are between 150-170 calories, are a good source of fibre,  contain 3/4 gms of protein per serving with a good percentage of healthy fats (Omega 3,Omega 6) and anti-oxidants.

“All our food is free of hydrogenated oils and high fructose corn syrup. They don’t use any artificial colours, flavours or preservatives and they aim to create products that have good nutritive value”.

Shelf Life: The shelf life on the bars currently is 3 months.

Who can snack on these bars? : 

Snack bars and super food bare are made with 100% natural ingredients, with no artificial sweetners or other ingredients. They are the perfect nutritious treat for kids! You can divide one Yogabar into 2-3 bars for a readymade delicious snack for the children. The Yogabar is not as sweet as “candy bars,” so children can enjoy themselves without becoming “sugared out.”

Because Gym Bars (High protein) are formulated with adult protein needs in mind, children should not eat a whole bar until their nutritional needs more closely match those of an adult (around ages 9-13). Children ages 4-9 could have half on occasion and as with all food choices, parents should use their best judgment.

You should consult your dietician / doctor if you are diabetic and want to include Yogabars as part of your diet.

Overall, these snack bars are good to carry around in your handbag /gymbag to satiate those hunger pangs and avoid binging on chips !!! It is a must try snack bar if you are health conscious or aim to be or if you just love trying out such stuff too!! The protein bars are good if you are into fitness /sport, etc., which would definitely help ! And yes, the packaging is cool too!!! My personal favourite snack bars are Cardamom and coconut, Vanilla and almond, Chocolate Chunk and Nut & Seed. I haven’t tried the protein bars yet. I am tempted to try them out though!! I only wish the single packs were available in the supermarket!!!

Hope this review helps!!!

Review: Immunity Booster Tea from Tea Treasure

We all have that one friend who is always by our side to uplift our mood when we feel low  or when we are ill and that just changes the way we look at life and yes , they definitely brighten up our day with their positive vibes. And what do we do if that friend is unable to be with us on a day when we need that burst of positive energy?  we lay our hands on the pack of Immunity Booster Tea from Tea Treasure which is a buddy that boosts your immunity 🙂

immpdr.PNG

For details on Tea Treasure and its product offerings, please visit my post:  A treasure worth the hunt.

So let me tell you more about this tea.

About the Immunity Booster Tea:

This tea is a blend of herbs that have traditionally been used by herbalists to help prevent a cold or flu or fasten recovery.

Ingredients: Green Tea, Coneflower, Licorice,Lemongrass,Terminalia chebula, tulsi,ginger

imm pdr1

Shelf life: 18 months from Manufactured date

Taste:  Well the taste is that of green tea and lemon grass, but the tea isn’t bitter. When you take a whiff of the tea leaves there is a strong aroma of lemon grass, however post preparation of the tea, it tones down a bit. No additional flavors are added.

Health Benefits: This blend of tea really helps when your immune system needs support. Echinacea encourages the immune system and reduces many of the symptoms of colds, flu and some other illnesses, infections and conditions.

Price: It is priced at Rs.220 for 50 gm of tea.

Packaging:

The tea is packed in the paper packaging which comes with a seal that would help you close the paper bag and keep the tea and flavours intact post opening it. An attractive informative sticker on the front gives you details on the name of the company, the tea and what type of tea it is as well as it has a catchy slogan!

The sticker on the back of the packet gives you information on the tea, ingredients,directions to prepare a cup of tea, nutritional facts, shelf life, net weight, packaging date and the price.

Steps towards a Perfect Cup of Tea:

  • Heat water to 90-95°C.
  • Place 2g of tea (1 Tea spoon) of tea in the pot for per 200 ml of water.
  • Pour hot water from the top of tea-leaves.
  • Let it infuse for 3-5 minutes, according to your taste.
  • Then pour out completely.

My take on the tea:

I love the tea as it is so calming and relaxing and you instantly feel rejuvenated.

It doesn’t taste bitter and is quite soothing. I normally prefer sugar in any tea, yes, be it black tea, green tea or the milky tea, i need two spoons of sugar!!!!

But this time I decided to have my green tea as it is so that I could write and be more informative about the tea. And yes, it didn’t hurt. Infact Tea Treasure has made me love green teas and yes sugarless green teas.

The aroma of lemongrass is quite strong but tones down on preparation of the tea.

Also this tea is good to have, especially when you are having a tough day and need an energy boost, which this tea definitely does justice to. It immediately relaxes the mind and those ten minutes with your cup of tea is enough to sort your day.

This tea also has ginger, tulsi and Echinacea (coneflower) which protects from the ill effects of seasonal changes, common cold, cough and flu by reducing their severity and duration.

So yes! make sure to have this tea in your office desk or at home and whenever you feel low or suffer from a cold /cough/flu , you’ll always have your buddy around! (If you have an empty jar of the chai masala from Tea Treasure , you can refill it with these tea leaves and have the immunity tea wherever you go )

This tea is on the expensive side no doubt, but from a pack of 50 gm of tea leaves, you can get 50 cups of tea, as the tea leaves can be infused 3 times, which is awesome.

My Rating: 4.8/5

Review: Premium Chai Masala from Tea Treasure

There are those days when you just want something to energize you and kickstart your day, no matter what time of the day it is. And yes, on such days, i really don’t want to have that simple cup of tea. I constantly rummage the fridge and cabinets for ingredients that will enhance my tea and refresh and energise me. But many a times, I miss out the right proportion of the ingredients and this just makes my tea taste really bad. No doubts here! my day begins on a bad note itself :/

I happened to find this bottle of Premium Chai Masala through Tea Treasure that has become an essential now. So let me not waste time and start off with my experience on this amazing Chai Masala from Tea Treasure.

For information on Tea Treasure and its offerings, Please check my post: A treasure worth the hunt

Packaging:

prem chai back.PNG

  I love the packaging.Tea treasure hasn’t failed to impress me, be it in terms of quality and taste of the tea and tea masalas, but also in terms of packaging. The attention to details is what impresses me the most.

The 15gm glass jar of tea masala is so cute, pretty and gourmet! It is a jar worth watching!

The sticker with its slogans and details on the tea, its ingredients and pricing simply amazes!

The pot is so handy that you could  refill it with your favourite Tea Masala and carry it with you when you travel!

Steps towards a Perfect Cup of Tea:

  • Place 1g of tea (1 Tea spoon) in the pot per 150ml of milk and water.
  • Add a pinch of Chai Masala per cup Bring the mixture to boil. Let it boil for 5-7 minutes, according to your taste.
  • Then pour out completely.

My take on the Premium Chai Masala:

prem chai masala.PNG

My hunt for various ingredients and chai masalas has ended with Tea Treasure Chai Masalas, be it the Kadak Chai Masala or the Premium Chai Masala. These are life saviours.

The perfect blend of spices which are visible to the eye: each ingredient in the masala can be recognised and the fragrance on opening the bottle makes me just want to sit with this lil pot. i just loved staring at the ingredients in the bottle and letting the fragrance sink in. A teaspoon of this masala needs to be added during the preparation of tea, and it gives you a really amazing masala chai.

It is the perfect masala chai, not strong and overpowering, but leaves a hint of the flavours of the spices as you take a sip.

The perfect cup of tea to have during the monsoons whilst relishing a plate of piping hot bhajiyas; or when you need to energize yourself to get rid of the blues, go ahead, use this pot of spice and get your cup of energy and just unwind for the day.

You could also have this post a meal as the ingredients in this chai masala help in digestion.

 As i said, these teas and masalas are a little on the expensive side, but it’s okay to splurge and indulge your tastebuds to some amazing teas from Tea Treasure

I am in love with this chai masala and definitely will be buying these masalas again.

It is the perfect Indian Chai, not strong and overpowering, but leaves a hint of the flavours of the spices as you take a sip. Its the one that i would love to have once i wake up in the morning.

The perfect cup of tea which is so light yet the flavours just kickstart your day and give you a feel good factor.

You could also have this post a meal as the ingredients in this tea help in digestion.

It’s my personal favourite and one of the best CTC teas I have had till date,

It is the tea that makes me look forward to welcoming the next day with a smile!
