16 Sep

CLA Extreme™ combines the benefits that active people are seeking with the proven effectiveness of Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA).  Before meats and cheeses were processed as they are today, people’s diets used to naturally contain greater quantities of CLA.  Now, supplementation is virtually the only way to achieve the same levels of CLA.  The effectiveness of CLA Extreme™ will not diminish over time; there is no need to cycle off the product.  CLA Extreme™ will work best for those who exercise regularly, follow a sensible diet and take the product consistently.

Organic Peanut Butter

18 May

Woolworths have a great organic peanut butter, the picture above is the exact one they sell. The only ingredient is peanuts, no sugars, salt, hydrogenated fats and oils and all that bad stuff. It tastes great and is a great source for healthy fats and protein, its a must try. For anyone that loves peanut butter here is a awesome healthy option, no need to eat peanut butter that is packed with terrible ingredients.

Woolworths also have a few organic canned items I really like, also pictured above. They have red kidney beans, lentils and chopped Italian tomatoes. All organic and low sodium which is great, this is hard to find. Great ingredients for pastas and many other dishes.

Here are options that you can chose over the regular high sodium preservative packed products you normally by and substitute them for a great healthy version.
