Maca Powder – £6.99 for 100g
I have been waiting and waiting to have this in the shop – it was/is very hard to come by. It’s grown only in the mountains of Peru and the harvest was ruined due to flooding last year so it became hard to come by and very expensive. It’s still a premium product, but so worth it! It’s also known as ‘Peruvian ginseng’ as it’s good for what ails ya – here’s what it can do:
It’s rich in Vitamins B, C and E and provides plenty of calcium, zinc, iron, magnesium, phosphorous and amino acids. This means it’s good for skin, moods, hormonal balancing and energy levels. It’s especially beneficial for women as it relieves most menstrual symptoms. If you’re feeling like your energy levels are low, try taking a small amount to see if it perks you up!

Please be advised that, as with all superfoods, results can’t be guaranteed and will vary according to what else you eat and your lifestyle.
Vegeset – £1.80 for 25g
A vegan setting agent for all your sweet and savoury recipes. This is carrageenan in powder form, with instructions on how to use and a recipe for Panna Cotta on the back. An essential in every vegetarian and vegan kitchen store cupboard, it sets clear and is flavourless so it can be used for all sorts of jelly-based recipes.
Trek Cocoa Oat Flapjacks -£1.20 for 50g
Useful for those that are active, this gluten and wheat free bar has 9g of protein in it! Another customer recommendation, these are vegan too. Pop one in your bag or pocket for a healthy snack on the go!
Echinacea tablets – £8.65 for 120 tablets
Echinacea is a natural remedy for colds and flu – it works to support the immune system and is an anti-inflammatory agent.
Nelson’s Kids’ natural cough medicine – £4.25 for 150ml
This is an entirely natural cough medicine, with Bryonia, honey and lemon juice to give relief to little ones over 12 months. Bryonia is the root of the Bryony plant and has anti-inflammatory properties.
Violife Cheese Spread with herbs – £2.89 for 200g
I think I could actually just fill the fridge with Violife and Replete Flatbreads, to be honest. There are 5 flavours of Violife and I chose the one most popular at Hornett Towers. It’s a lovely mild flavour and really creamy – it’s hard to believe it’s vegan!
