Trying out Kolios Authentic Greek Yogurt Fat Free

VeggyMalta tries out Kolios Authentic Greek Yogurt fat free. Now there are a number of ways to try out Greek yogurt at different times of the day. If you wish a breakfast snack, you can take it as is, but I suggest taking it with a mixed bowl of fruit. This adds the fibre and vitamin content of your meal. At the same time I particularly like the taste of yogurt with freshly pealed fruit. You can add whatever fruit you find, whatever...

Kellogg’s baretta – time for a snack

We tried Kellogg’s barrettas. They have two flavours. The mandorle e cioccolato and the mandorle, miele e semi, which in English translates to almonds and chocolate and the second one almonds, honey and seeds. Both bars are suitable for vegetarians and labelled accordingly. If you are looking for a crunchy and tasty snack which is rich in protein (plus also fibre), these bars should meet the mark. Interestingly, 41% of the bars...

Acqua & Farina Fresh Pizza base – make your own pizza

I tried out Acqua & Farina pizza base on two different home-made pizzas, one being vegan and the other vegetarian. I must state that the product is very easy to use and avoids the hassle of making you own pizza dough, giving it time to settle, laying it out, cleaning after the whole operation, etcetera. Which is why many opt for a ready made pizza. Acqua & Farina pizza base is totally plug and play or rather plug and eat. The...

Kuhne Italian salad dressing

Summer is approaching and we all tend to eat more salads, though I like a good salad most of the year. The good thing is that salads are quick to prepare and can provide you with a mix of vitamins, minerals and fibre. It is always advisable to try to have a mix of colours in your salad as that ensures a balance of various positive properties that come from vegetables. Also add with some vegan-balls, tofu or both actually. The key to a...

A spring morning snack – with Kolios

It’s a cold rainy and wet spring morning. Mother nature is busy watering all it’s blossoming flowers around the island, yet for most of us we need to wake up and go to work rather than jump in puddles in our beautiful countryside. Maybe this weekend! Whilst some might take some caffeine or a cup of tea to help them open their sticky shutters open, a snack in the morning is key to starting the day in the right manner. In my...

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...

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 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...

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...
