Glenilen handmade yoghurts really caught our attention with their large collection of natural low-fat yoghurts. The family-run farm has been running for generations in County Cork. What started as a hobby using their cows’ milk has now grown into a fully-fledged business, using fresh simple ingredients.

The yoghurts come in lots of delicious flavours, including rhubarb and strawberry, natural seeds, and blueberry. We loved the creamy textures and all the yoghurts had a lovely thick layer of fruit. With no additives or nasties, this is the perfect sweet treat without the guilt. Buy it here for £1.99.

The Amazing Blog are big fans of Gosh’s naturally free-from range. Suitable for vegans, their products are free from gluten, egg, dairy, nut and soya, meaning that everybody can enjoy these great products. The food from Gosh is made from minimal and fresh ingredients, blending vegetables, pulses, herbs and spices.

We particularly enjoyed the mushroom, puy lentil and butter bean burgers. Packed with mushrooms, vegetables, they contain one of your important five a day. Although they are super healthy, these burgers pack a punch with great flavour. These products are feel-good food we know you’ll enjoy. You can buy the Gosh burgers for £2.50 here.

Lizi’s Granola is a healthy breakfast cereal containing oats, nuts, seeds and more excellent healthy ingredients. Lizi’s has always strived to add natural and simple ingredients in their products. The oats are a fantastic source of both protein and fibre, helping you to stay fuller for longer and prevent spikes in blood sugar levels.

We at The Amazing Blog were excited to try Lizi’s Pink Apple & Cinnamon Granola. Apples are a great addition to your diet, aiding the heart, digestive system, and blood sugar. Cinnamon is also a brilliant ingredient to help control blood sugar. The granola is really tasty and so easy to prepare when you’re in a rush – simply add milk and eat. For an incredibly easy and delicious breakfast, get it here for £3.65.

Skinny Dipping is a savoury dip company offering up an amazing selection of healthy and natural dips. The brand is the brainchild between two friends in Islington, and what they’ve cooked up is really special. Coming from their love of hummus, Skinny Dipping has put together beautiful flavour combinations such as Spiced Squash and Yoghurt, Broadbean and Mint, and Charred Aubergine and Lemon.

The dips are homemade and created with 100% natural ingredients. All of the pots are healthy with a high a vegetable content, meaning you can indulge as often as you want! We think they would be brilliant to share with friends with crudites or even as an addition to your lunchbox.
