Strike the Gold Foods – Blue Swimming Crab:
This company is awesome because of its ethical practices enforced and because of the delicious crab it sells. The crab is caught off the coast of Indonesia. Sustainable and ethical practices are enforced while catching the crab and the workers are treated ethically as well. The company employs nearly 6,000 people, and their families are well looked after for ten months of the year during work times. Workers get a month off for Ramadan and they get an additional four weeks of vacation. Unlike usual European crab, Blue Swimming crab is not a bottom feeder. It spends most of its time swimming or towards the top of the sea, therefore it is much less salty and gritty. It can be found at Spar as well as some other stores, and it tasted absolutely delicious. This company’s practices need to be applauded and followed. I had a chat with the Director of UK Sales David Miller. Listen to it below.
Top 3 Healthy Drinks:
Cofounder Alex Lai helped to launch Simplee Aloe drinks only three months ago. He wanted to create a new aloe drink that tasted natural and smooth and that would also be able to compete with other health drinks. These drinks are perfect for a detox and also beneficial to your skin to name just a couple of their health benefits. This drink is free of preservatives, is ethically farmed, and it tastes amazing. Aloe drinks are becoming the new health craze, and you should give it a try, especially since these taste so natural and are smooth compared to other aloe products on the market. It’s definitely worth a try, and you’ll love it. You can find it in Sainsbury’s and in London Whole Foods.
Organo Healthy Gourmet Beverages:
This company formed about five years ago, and it’s been in the UK for about 3 years. These variety of teas, coffees, and even hot chocolate are all infused with an herb called ganoderma, which can reduce blood pressure, can help clear up your skin, can reduce cholesterol, and can boost your stamina. The health benefits of drinking these beverages are numerous, and you get to say you are drinking healthy coffee! Even if you aren’t a coffee drinker there are also a variety of teas and even vitamins to try. The latte I had was delicious and you can get the mixes online so they can be delivered right to you. Have a listen to the chat I had with Benita about it.
Praana Herb and Tea Company:
This newly launched herbal tea company has an amazing assortment of health beneficial teas ranging from detoxing tea, sweet dreams tea, energizing tea, and even flavors like rose caring and spicy cinnamon. The name Praana comes from an old Indian tradition and means life force and the root to all life. It is important to the company that all the teas are organic and pure nature, and that people treat themselves well by using these herbs. Praana should be launched into the shops soon, but for now it can be found on Amazon. All of these teas smell wonderful, and the energizing tea I had was great. This company has a lot of potential and they are very passionate about what they are doing. Just have a listen to the conversation I had with Hilde and give these teas a try. They smell fantastic, they taste even better, and are worth it! Give them a try and check out their website and blog as well!
