Whilst the sunshine isn’t as consistent as we’d like it to be, we refuse to let the summer spirit sizzle! Read on for a list of our seasonal summer essentials that we won’t be giving up any time soon…


Summertime Snacking

In the summertime, we’re all about portable eats and treats than can fit perfectly into our gym bags, on-board carry-on and picnic baskets alike. Being super active and always on the go means its not always an option to sit and snack, which is why we rely on Raw Gorilla Munchies for the perfect brekkie on the go or when we’re after a sweet snack and Giving Tree Broccoli Crisps when we’re craving something savoury. Here’s how we enjoy them…

Raw Gorilla Munchies: Providing for a convenient and healthy breakfast or snack on the go, Raw Gorilla Munchies are travel life savours! Within each packet you will find delicous bites of raw granola packed full of amazing ingredients like buckwheat, sprouted seeds, and superfoods that will keep your energy levels up and your stomach satisfied. Available in the perfect sized portions to have alongside a green juice or sprinkled over a coconut yogurt; take your pick from Raw Maca & Cinnamon or Raw Cacao & Lucuma. We love!

Giving Tree Broccoli Crisps: A delicious and nutritious snack or lunch addition on-the-go, here at H&H we are a little bit obsessed with Giving Tree Broccoli Crisps. Whilst they may not sound like the most appealing pick-me-up, these yummy broccoli pieces have been freeze dried – a process that enables nutrients to remain intact! The only other ingredient is cholesterol lowering rice bran oil which gives them a delicious crunch. A creative take on crudités, we like to enjoy ours dipped into a BPA free tupperware of Sweet Potato or Broad Bean Hummus, added to salads as a crouton alternative of sprinkled over soups for added texture.

Hip, Healthy & Hydrated

Fill&Go: From pre-work yoga classes, meetings and lunchtime runs – during Summer our on-the-go lifestyle means we’re not always in close proximity to a tap or jug. With this in mind, we’ve been glued to our Fill&Go’s this season. The perfect portable size, this clever product by BRITA provides you with filtered h2O and is a great alternative to the plastic store bought bottle of water! Find out how we like to use ours here!
