Twining infuso – fruit & herbal teas for all occasions

Veggy Malta tried out Twinings infuso herbal teas. We tried out 5 flavours very distinct from each other and quite pleasant to take at different times of the day. Let’s have a quick look at these 5 Twinings flavours: The lemon & ginger is a classic combination. I occasionally make my fresh brew of this tea, yet I always have some tea-bags with ginger especially in winter. Nothing warms you up from inside than a sip of lemon...

A drop of sweetness with Diete.Tic

Given that I am all the time saying that I need to lose weight I was happy to try out two sweeteners by the Italian brand Diete.Tic. Those who know me know that I chose the veggy lifestyle for animal and environmental reasons. The plus side to it are all the yummy and tasty plant based food one gets to discover in this journey. I guess we all have become more aware of the decreasing the consumption of sugars but I have tried to take...

Amy’s Kitchen cream of mushrooms soup

I tried out Amy’s Kitchen cream of mushrooms soup. Another of Amy’s Kitchen range of ready made canned soups. Just like Amy’s Kitchen’s other soups it is certified organic and carries the EU organic leaf symbol. The ingredients include mushrooms (obviously!), onions, arborio rice, leeks, celery and organic cream/butter. So you’ve guessed it’s a vegetarian soup (approved by the Vegetarian Society)....

W.K Kellogg no added sugar granola – more than a high fibre vegan snack

. Reason being Veggy Malta tried out the new W.K Kellogg no added sugar granola with coconut, cashew and almonds. I couldn’t resist so I tried it out as an afternoon snack with some (vegan) yogurt, cherries, berries and a bit of (vegan) milk. Just great! This new product by Kellogg’s has been distinctively branded as W.K Kellogg after the founder of the company Will. It is one of three products including two other granola...

Valsoia’s Fettine – rich source of protein

Veggy Malta tried out Valsoia’s Fettine. Another product in Valsoia’s extensive range of meat free products. I tried out the Fettine with some fresh salad. The choice of fresh salad came about as I persist with the illusion that I am trying to cut back post my Christmas season food binging. After all they only contain 163 kcal per 100 g and having taken just one with my salad, that means just three-fourths of those 152...

Amy’s Kitchen Organic lentil vegetables soup

Veggy Malta tried out Amy’s Kitchen Organic lentil vegetables soup. It is one of a range of vegan and organic soups by this American brand. I tried it out. Whilst I am a soup lover, I usually am not too overly impressed by canned soup yet I must state that Amy’s Kitchen got it right. They actually managed to twin convenience with taste. I mention convenience as this soup just couldn’t be easier to prepare. You really...

Valsoia’s Pizza con Verdure griliate

Veggy Malta tried out Valsoia’a Pizza con Verdure griliate (Pizza with grilled vegetables). Although it gives the impression that it has mozzarella on top, Valsoia’s Pizza con Verdure griliate is a vegan pizza! That is because the pizza is topped with Valsoia’s Gustosino just as their other pizza, the Pizza Margherita is. Both actually are 100% vegan, dairy free and obviously lactose free. The lack of dairy has...

Valsoia’s Cotolette

Veggy Malta tried out Valsoia’s Cotolette (cutlets). Actually Valsoia’s Cotolette are a standard thing at home, given that they are well liked by the kids (and me the older kid as well). They actually are a good source of protein having 16 g of protein per cutlet whilst at the same time having 217 kcal. That means that each portion (of a 100 g cutlet) covers over a quarter of the daily recommended intake of protein*. [1]...

Kolios organic Greek yogurt

Veggy Malta tried Kolios organic Greek yogurt with 0% fat. I took the yogurt at breakfast whilst reading some magazines. Adding a dash of muesli to it even though the Greek yogurt is pleasant to eat as is. Two key aspects of this product are the words organic and 0% fat. Kolios organic Greek yogurt is high in protein. A tub of Kolios will give you over 12 g of protein, which all things considered is very good. After all Greek yogurt...

Added with that the filling made with tofu, hash browns and vegetables are in a gluten free warp. So basically, this breakfast scramble ticks...

Amy’s Kitchen’s Broccoli & Cheddar Bake

VeggyMalta tries out another product by Amy’s Kitchen. This time we tried Amy’s Kitchen’s Broccoli & Cheddar Bake. As the name gives away, this is a vegetarian product within the range and not a vegan one. It actually carries the Vegetarian Society’s seal of approval. The other sign on the package to take note of is that one stating that it is gluten free. Like most Amy’s Kitchen products, this is...
