Saving pounds with Approved Food | Review

Approved Food review

Hands up who doesn’t like saving money on their weekly, or monthly shopping bill? Nope, I can’t see a very big show of hands… I’m always on the lookout for a bargain and when I haven’t got the kids with me, I spend more time than I should browsing the shops looking for offers and great deals. I can always be spotted on the reduced shelves in the supermarket too! I do love a good browse online as well, but there aren’t many online only shops where you can save good amounts on your grocery bill. That’s where Approved Food come in.

Thousands of savvy shoppers and bargain hunters regularly save more than 70% off their weekly grocery shopping with us. We specialise in surplus and short-dated stock, food that is either near or just passed its ‘best before’ date – allowing us to pass on huge savings to our customers.

‘Best before’ dates appear on a wide range foods and acts as the manufacturers estimate of when the premium quality of its product may start to deteriorate, losing some of its flavour and texture, but it isn’t when food should be discarded. We never sell anything with a ‘use by’ date.

August Degustabox | Subscription Box Review

August Degustabox

The August Degustabox was along the theme of back to school. None of the products in our box were actually used for school though as the box arrived just before we went on holiday, so we took it with us! There were some quite exciting products in this box; some I’d come across before and some I hadn’t.

  • Enjoy 10 to 15 surprise products, many are completely new to the market!
  • Receive your Degustabox every month filled with goodies.
  • All for much less than you would pay in the shops!

So what was inside the August Degustabox?

Our August favourites | Mazes, bear hunts, and a holiday

August favourites

The month of August seems to have whizzed by in a blur! I think it’s because I tried to get lots of work, some more fun in, and the school shopping finished before we went on holiday at the end of the month. When we came home earlier this month, it was only three days before the boys went back to school and I didn’t want to be rushing around.

I could just include everything we did on holiday in this post but then there wouldn’t be much room for anything else! So, I’m going to write about our holiday adventures separately. There is food involved, as usual, and some summer holiday fun.

my healthy kitchen (myhk) ready meals | Review

my healthy kitchen ready meals review

Since joining Slimming World two and a half years ago, I have very rarely bought a ready meal. If I have, then it’s been from a supermarket’s own healthier range, or SW’s own. I do love being in the kitchen and getting my cook on, but sometimes I just don’t have the time or basically, just cannot be bothered… So when I was asked if I would like to sample the my healthy kitchen (myhk) range of ready meals, I accepted the mission.

Our meals are full of goodness because of what we put in, rather than what we take out.

Every one of our ready meals is under 500 calories and made with nutritious ingredients, with no artificial flavours, colours, or preservatives. Better yet, we make sure every meal offers at least one nutritional benefit, whether it’s low in fat, saturated fat, or salt, is a source of protein or fibre, or contains 1 (or more!) of your 5 a day.

July Degustabox | Subscription Box Review

July17 Degustabox review

I’ve been receiving the Degustabox for over a year now and every month I look forward to the surprise on delivery day. The July Degustabox was themed as the summer box, and pretty much every product inside did fit the brief! There were a couple of products I really wasn’t keen on this month, but no complaints about the rest.

  • Enjoy 10 to 15 surprise products, many are completely new to the market!
  • Receive your Degustabox every month filled with goodies.
  • All for much less than you would pay in the shops!

So what was inside the July Degustabox?
