Welcome to our January issue, and our first box of the new year. From day one on the drawing board it’s been our absolute mission to fill this particular issue with pure positivity and vibrant vibes. We know the January humdrum is exceptionally monotone and dreary right now, so see Issue 13 as a way to brighten up your month as well as your taste buds. We really hope you love it, as much as we loved putting it together. Enjoy the discoveries you are about to behold, you’ll find no bad vibes here.
” The New Year always brings an enjoyable shift in food & drink, with the spotlight moving away from treats & sweets to vitality, nutrition and what’s good for the body and soul.” – Andy, BoroughBox MD.
Now, let’s meet the contents of Issue 13;
Raw Criollo Cocao by Ibiza Superfoods.
Ibiza Superfoods began in the summer of 2013, born in Ibiza. Verity started importing her favourite superfoods to the island, where it incidentally became a big hit with the residents. After a hard working summer, Verity’s potent powders were in high demand and Ibiza Superfoods was born.
Looking for a positive buzz? 100% Good feelings in a bag. We thought it would be so nice to include a truly versatile product for you this month. This chocolate blend is made solely from Organic Cacao beans and nothing else. For a healthy feel-good buzz, add to smoothies, yoghurt, cereals or simply alone with water.
Pomegranate, Cherry and Cardamon Cordial by Elderbrook Drinks.
Elderbrook came about, because standard water, while keeping us alive, just doesn’t get these guy’s pulses racing. With the only product available, for jazzing up water in anyway, predominantly just being squash, something had to be done!
Banish standard squash from your mind and never think of it again. Here is your new grown up, and reformed alternative. Elderbrook have a distinct grown up feel, from their flavours right through to their design. Drink with water, or add a drop to your home cocktails for added flair.
Tree Water by Sibberi.
“Screw coconuts, be a #sapsucker” as their mantra, Sibberi’s aim is to offer water made by trees that simply remains untouched. Please re-frame from thinking this is just another ‘trendy’ water. Cleverly filtered through Bamboo, Maple or Birch trees, this water has been on a clever journey before finishing up in its bottle. We thought it would be great to accompany your Elderbrook Cordial or your Ibiza Superfoods Blend.
Fresh Granola Toasting Kits by Troo Granola.
Meet a small family run business, based by the sea in Folkstone, Kent with big ambitious plans. Everyone is involved – Helenor, Mike and their children Carys and Euan. DIY granola has now been made very easy.
Get stuck in this month and toast your own fresh granola. Why? Because Troo Granola have made it their mission to make your breakfast time an unmissable occasion. Made easy too, by coming up with their Seedy, Nutty & Fruity varieties.
Cricket Flour Bar by Gathr’s Crobar.
Starting with Christine’s passion for endurance running, healthy food, travelling, it was her fascinated with the number of people who eat insects on a daily basis that really got her thinking. After learning about the health and environmental benefits of insects, she took the idea of introducing it back home, and Crobar was born.
The key word here, is Cricket. Forget street food vendors in Bangkok serving up deep fried dubious insects, how about some sustainably made cricket flour instead? A nutritious source of protein for your lunch time snack, but with a quirky difference.
Hand Crafted Chocolate Bars by Well + Happy.
Happy hormones be boosted! Cast aside that negative energy, and meet the chocolate makers that leave all the bad things behind.
It’s true, beauty is in the eye of the beholder but we’ll be hard pressed to find someone who doesn’t find these chocolate bars a thing of absolute, pure allurement. As well as looking exquisite, the flavour range grabs your attention just as much. Not just a pretty face…
Superseed Artisan Pastas by Nomad Health.
Meet the love child of two gardeners with a long standing dream of making healthy, nutritious & tasty gluten free pasta. Both passionate about food and healthy living, Marianna, a coeliac and dyslexic and Keith, a gluten intolerant & diabetic, wanted to create something using their gardener’s knowledge of super seeds and grains.
Carb dodgers fear not! This unique pasta’s ingredients are all naturally low in carbohydrates. Heard of Green Banana Penne? Flax Seed Fusilli? Sounds more then interesting, doesn’t it? Trust us, Nomad Health will put an end to those usual energy slumps, that are associated with those regular pasta meals.
Chickpea Puffs by Hippeas.
Hello to any modern hippies out there! We think this ethos is for you; ‘For the kind who live for the now, who want goodness for mind, body and soil and rally behind those that want the same.’
From wholesomely herby, to flaming fajitas awaken your taste buds with these puffy Chickpea snacks. Proudly leading astray from the snack pack, they prove you can have ‘astounding taste’ and ‘good for you’, in the same sentence.
Moroccan Almond Butter by Yumello.
Conjured up, in the high Atlas Mountain region of Morocco, founder Esther wanted to embrace her favourite foods from her home; almonds, peanuts, Argan oil and honey. She planned out her mission using all knowledge and experiences she had gathered from Moroccon artisans, and put it to good work! Back in the UK, Yumello was born.
Hello biscuit dough texture, with your comforting malty taste. A jar didn’t last long in our office, put it that way. Yumello pride themselves on their extremely simple ingredients list with 89% almonds, 6% honey and 5% Argan oil only going into their butters. No palm oil here friends!
