More new lines!

New stock added!

How are we fitting it all in?! The shop is becoming ever more Tardis-like as we go on but it’s all going in nicely. Heaven knows where all the seasonal stuff’s going to go (yes, I’m starting to think about that but I hesitate to use the “C” word just yet…) Regular readers will know that most of our additions come from suggestions from customers, whether it’s from orders that I think we need to have on the shelves for everyone to buy or just “have you got…” requests. When you visit, don’t be shy if you think we’re missing something!

Balsamic vinegarBiona Organic Balsamic Vinegar – 500ml for £3.99

I use a drizzle of balsamic vinegar as a salad dressing and it’s also lovely used with olive oil as a dip for crusty bread. Biona is a 100% organic brand and we have several of their products in the shop, such as spelt pasta, wholegrain mustard and other sauces.

Trek barsTrek Bars and Flapjacks – £1.20 each

I had these recommended to me by a customer who runs and cycles long distances.   They are high in protein, vegan and gluten free. They’re made by the same company who make the very popular Nakd bars.

GF oatsDelicious Alchemy Gluten Free Oats – 450g for £3.49

Another customer request – for those who can’t have gluten in their diets, there’s now no need to go without a filling bowl of porridge in the morning! I really liked the packaging on this – we also have their Vanilla Sponge and Chocolate Brownie gluten free cake mixes in stock.

Ecover hand washEcover Citrus and Orange Blossom hand wash – 250ml for £3.35

A customer placed an order for this and I liked the sound of it so it’s on the shelves. Ecover have an entirely ecological factory, making these lovely cruelty-free products. The products don’t clog up the environment after use either so it’s all good!

Superfoods!

We have a fab new range of Superfoods in stock at Hornett Wholefoods from Superfoodies – they come in 100g resealable pouches and here’s why you should include them in your day. Superfood, rawLucuma powder – £4.99

Lucuma is an fruit from Peru that looks like an orange avocado and the powder from it is a natural sweetener (you can also find it in the delicious Raw Chocolate Company’s Vanoffe bar that we stock). It’s rich in the following nutrients:

  • Antioxidants – these help keep cells in one piece and help the body fight free radicals.
  • Iron – Helps red blood production and prevents anaemia.
  • Zinc – Helps regulate cell growth, and digestion.

  • Amino acids – These help your body process protein.
  • Magnesium – Relaxes blood vessels and helps muscle recover after use. Can help with depression and headaches.
  • Potassium
  • Iron

Himalayan Pink Salt – £2.69

Pink Salt has less sodium than traditional white salt. It can be used in food or as a soak in the bath, to help stimulate circulation and soothe sore muscles.

Rich in:

  • Magnesium
  • Calcium
  • Potassium

 Carob Powder – £2.99

It’s very often used in place of chocolate, although it’s a completely different plant. It has less caffeine than chocolate so it’s suitable for those who can’t eat chocolate without getting a headache. It’s low fat, high fibre and is suitable for diabetics.

It has calcium, protein, magnesium and iron, so it’s nothing but good for you, really!

Summery additions to Hornett Wholefoods!

I think it’s safe to say that summer has arrived! We have a few seasonal items to add to the shop this week… Ice lollies

Real Nice Ice Lollies – 90p each, £3.60 for a box of four.

Organic fruit lollies to keep everyone cool on hot summer days. We have Mixed Berry or Mango single lollies and the box has 2 Banana & Raspberry and 2 Mango lollies in it. The lollies are made from the whole fruit, not the juice with no added sugar, water or preservatives.

Hay Max Pollen Barrier Balm – £7.10 for 5ml

Hay Max traps pollen at the base of your nose, meaning less pollen or dust goes into the body for a reduction in allergies. It’s effective for hayfever, pet allergies and any other airborne allergies. It’s won all sorts of awards, including an award from Allergy UK in 2013 for being “Allergy Friendly”. Probiotics and HayMax

Probiotics

This contains inulin and psyllium husk to keep your gut moving along. It contains live bacteria that are naturally present in healthy digestive systems.

This is friendly bacteria in powder form to aid digestion.

More friendly bacteria; in tablet form. This is gluten free and suitable for vegans.

GF Cake mixesGluten Free Cake and Brownie Mixes from Delicious Alchemy – £3.49 for 400g

We have a Vanilla Sponge Mix and a Chocolate Brownie Mix and it’s all I can do not to experiment with it in the microwave! These are gluten and dairy free. The website is very useful and includes lots of tips about gluten intolerance and recipes.

GF TagliatelleGluten Free Tagliatelle – £2.99 for 250g

An addition to the shop as suggested by a customer, this is gluten, egg and dairy free. It’s made in Italy for an authentic taste and it’s really easy to use.

Quinoa chips - tomato and garlicQuinoa Chips with Sundried Tomato and Garlic – 69p for 40g

Another addition to the expanding ‘crisps’ section in the shop. These are very nice indeed and I had a hard time not finishing the whole bag in an undignified rush! These are lower in fat that normal crisps and have so much more flavour – I can heartily recommend these. These are also gluten free and vegan.
