HEALTHY EATS REVIEWS : LIVLIFE BREAD REVIEW

Hello everyone,  hope you had a lovely easter break and you are enjoying the AMAZING weather in the UK. I had a pretty relaxing and fun long weekend with the husband and hanging out with some dear friends, it was a great weekend!

This Spring and Summer, I will be doing some healthy eat reviews on some of my favourite good-for- you treats. After learning some hard truths about dieting, I am a big believer of making healthier choices everyday instead of the YOLO and dieting culture that is becoming the norm.

The foods featured in these reviews will be healthier substitutes of foods and snacks people tend to eat. This is to avoid eating bad one day and restricting or fasting the next.

The first review is for LivLife seeded bread; thanks to low carb diets, gluten free and wheat belly, bread is seen the food of demons. I don't know about you but every now and then a slice of toast with butter. PB, marmite or nutella 'gives me life'. With LivLife bread you can enjoy a slice or two with no guilt shame or condemnation. Read the full review to find out why.


Nutritional value

So here goes the review: For starters the slices are quite small 26grams to be precise which is like 3/4 of a normal slice of bread. With 3.8 grams of carbs and 6.8 grams of protein and 2.2grams of fibre per slice it is a nutritional lottery winner.

 Taste

Taste-wise it tastes like a normal seeded bread(yummy) which is a huge relief as most healthier bread alternatives tend to taste quite cardboard-y.

Cost

At £1.59 per loaf, it is an OK value for money considering what you are getting. Unfortunately it is not gluten free but with each slice being small and the whole wheat content low, a slice of toast is unlikely to cause any gluten related side effect unless you have a very high gluten intolerance or coeliacs disease.

Where to buy

You can buy this bread on the Livlife website but with £5.99 for postage and packaging, you are better off popping into your nearest Waitrose. 

While you are there you can grab yourself a free coffee or tea (Waitrose coffee is better than most major chains, you'd be surprised) and if you are a Lloyds bank user, you can get up to 10% cash back on anything you buy.
