Seven Simple Swaps for a Superior Snack

 
We all want to be a little healthier but it can often become overwhelming when we deny ourselves all of the things we like.
Make it a little simpler for yourself and rather than eliminating things from your diet entirely, it’s easy it is to switch out a few things for a healthier option.
What to swap:
1. Sugar – swap refined white sugar sugar for dates or agave.
2. Chocolate biscuits – Dark chocolate covered rice cakes
3. Ice Cream – Blend bananas & freeze

Let’s Drink Mushrooms!

Have you seen our new range of mushroom products? All of the mushrooms used in Terranova products are organic and fresh freeze-dried. Air, oven and spray drying – the standard commercial methods used to dry plant materials – can degrade important compounds and alter a plant’s delicate biochemical balance. On the other hand, research shows that fresh freeze-drying actually protects and retains a plant’s potency, biochemical integrity and enzymatic activity. In fact, the biochemical profile of a fresh freeze-dried plant very closely resembles the profile of the original fresh plant, but in a much greater concentration, due to the removal of the plant’s moisture content.
