In my kitchen, there is a slight surplus of Nuun electrolyte tablets.
I discovered these a few months back, a way of replenishing electrolytes on long runs without buying pre-prepared sugar and/or colour-filled sports drinks. You drop a tablet in your drink bottle and off you go.
I bought a single tube of lemon-lime flavour first, and then bought a multi-pack and a non-Nuun brand for comparison. I only realised afterwards that I now have enough to last me for at least the next year. I usually only use one tablet a week, and there are 12 tablets per tube, so...yes. Quite a lot.
|I haven't tried the fruit punch or tropical flavours yet. I don't like grape overmuch, but love the lemon/lime and strawberry lemonade.|
In my kitchen, there is a block of 85% cocoa Alter Eco Dark Blackout chocolate.
It arrived last Easter weekend and is one of the few Alter Eco flavours I hadn't yet tried. As with all other chocolates in this range, I like it a lot. I'd describe it as a cross between Koko Black's 80% dark chocolate and Lindt's 90% dark chocolate, which means that it carries notes of brownies, is surprisingly sweet, and is utterly delicious in the depth of chocolate tones.
In my kitchen, there are toasted coconut chips. I am a little horrified at myself for buying these (ingredient list: coconut, sugar) but they are good! They remind me a little of dried banana chips.
In my kitchen, there is red quinoa.
It actually tastes different to the white variety - nuttier, earthier, and almost slightly sweeter. I like this a lot, too.
In my kitchen, there is brazil-almond-cashew spread.
I'm not sure I could have picked it as different to regular almond or cashew spread, but it does have a certain extra oomph in flavour that straight almond butter doesn't.
In my kitchen, there is a green papaya.
I'm hoping to turn it into a salad reminiscent of this raw Thai papaya salad.
In my kitchen, there are birthday preparations underway...which mean that I am off to ice a cake...
