  • You get to sit around the table for a long time as you cook your own food, hence promoting interaction and bonding.
  • It’s a healthy meal, as you are enjoying the food which has been briefly cooked in hot broth. The food is not greasy at all. My main point! 🙂

BRUNEUS : Nuts Rockin

SPONSORED POST10492061_10152310612787746_967134370464337351_n

Have you ever heard about BRUNEUS? I did my research on healthy snacks and came across Superlative Foods website and a brand new journey begins. I am really honoured to meet owner Angeline Lee, former biologist and founder of Superlative Foods. She started her business in March 2013 making raw chocolate and activated nut products. She did share with me her challenges starting her own business and the determination to stay passionate to her vision of making healthy, sustainable food. Truly amazed with her work.

As a breakfast lover, I do enjoy nuts over my cereal, or otherwise snacking on them during tea break. I love wholesome food! Just like everyone else, grabbing the convenient packed raw/roasted nuts in any supermarket as my pick but only to realize that not all packed nuts are organically grown nor free from additives/preservatives.

At BRUNEUS, all produce are organically grown and uses only natural ingredients for nut cluster. Handcrafted to perfection and are made fresh in small batches with no additives or preservatives. Have you also heard about activated nuts?

Activated nuts are nuts that have been soaked and sprouted. The process of activation breaks down phytic acid and enzyme inhibitors, making the nuts more easily digestible than raw or roasted nuts and the nutrients are also more easily absorbed by the body. The nut clusters are dehydrated at a low temperature to preserve the enzymes and nutrients. As compared to other conventional nuts, activated nuts allow the body to easily digest and absorb the nutrients.

Another star ingredients in BRUNEUS is their unadulterated chocolate, raw cacao nibs are made from peeled and crumbled cacao beans carefully selected from organic farmers in Bali. Raw cacao nibs are chocolate chips in its most natural form and it is a powerful natural source of magnesium and antioxidants. A power booster for a healthy heart! ♥

10389958_10152310614287746_6862069136055980357_nHere’s my favourite raw nut clusters! I love the cashews and almonds most!

Combined with all natural raw cacao nibs and coconut palm sugar makes it even more awesome! Definitely highly nutritious and a great source of Vitamin E. Coconut palm sugar makes the product a healthier choice as compared to processed cane sugar, as it is low in Glycemic Index and is suitable even for diabetics. It’s also good for people who are looking to control their weight.

10500525_10152310613787746_1484509323796083115_nThe walnut clusters are equally yummy! Everything with cacao nibs just tasted better. I couldn’t agree more on that, as I especially love the bitter-sweet aftertaste of every munch of nuts I place into my mouth. Bursting in flavours and absolutely natural and healthy! How could anyone resist? 10400869_10152310613152746_9067675845337084577_n10559959_10152310613227746_1390965288324346567_n

I shared these bags of nuts with my family members and friends who are seldom a nut eater. They were in awe with BRUNEUS bursting flavour! All of them ate more than 4 pieces at least. We could easily wiped out 2 bags in 10 minutes. The truth is, not everyone can take raw/roasted nuts. They may not be able to take the taste and just simply dislike it. The best example, will be my sis who doesn’t consume nuts. Yes, any type of it was a ban to her. To my surprise, BRUNEUS was the only nut product she took! Probably the culprit behind this was the cacao nibs. Who doesn’t love chocolate, no?

10420750_10152310613632746_3196686406547151231_nMy favourite way to eat these cacao nibs will be adding them to my fruit smoothie! I blend them with my usual combination; strawberry + banana, avocado milk or mixed berries juice! It gives a chocolatey flavour and also a nice crunch with the bittersweet after-taste. That’s how pure & raw these cacao nibs are! You may replace them as chocolate chips in your favourite cookies or cupcakes too!

10532337_10152310613407746_4191356952886103560_nThe newest product of the range will be; Chia Seeds & Raw Cacao clusters. These bags are guaranteed of 25% chia seeds! What exactly are chia seeds? The little seed — which comes in either white or black colour has a huge nutritional profile. It contains calcium, manganese, and phosphorus, and is a great source of healthy omega-3 fats. Superfood chia seeds are crazy-versatile. You can throw some in everything from yogurt to oatmeal to peanut butter cookies! Click here to read on more: Top 10 Benefits of Chia Seeds

These delicious nut clusters are great toppings for ice cream, yogurt and salads. Perfect for everyone from all ages. It is vital to consume nut products as they provide us with good fats, minerals and vitamins which empower our bodies. The selection of food is essential from young, as we are able to absorb nutrients effectively and getting them into our blood streams.

Bruneus nut clusters ($7.90) and sweet cacao nibs ($8.90) are available at retailing locations: Tangy Tangerines (Pasarbella), eat ORGANIC, Toby’s Estate Asia, Four Seasons Organic Market, Zenxin Agri-Organic Food, NAIISE and Playhao.

Nuts and chocolates are the best things in life ♥

Unisoy Instant Nutritious Soya Oatmeal


10505301_10152267441597746_7672395702678919235_nI think I’m a really lucky girl to be able to try out the different types of health products in the market at times and this time, I received UNISOY® Instant Nutritious Soya Oatmeal. Perfect for a quick, fast and healthy breakfast for people on the go. The refreshing combination of top grade, 100% non-GMO organic soya beans and 100% organic whole-grain oats. The perfect blend of nutrition and taste makes the starts for a good day. UNISOY is Singapore house brand and well known for their full range of soy products from Soya Milk, Black Soya Milk and Soya Cereal Drink.


UNISOY® Instant Nutritious Soya Oatmeal main feature: 100% organic oats, 100% organic beans, 40% whole-grain. Nutritionally packed with protein, whole grains with no additional preservatives and colouring. Carrying the Healthier Choice symbol, it is also lower in fat, particularly saturated fats, low in sugar and at the same time, higher in calcium! This breakfast beverage is easily labeled as an eat clean breakfast choice!

Do you know?

Soybeans are the only vegetable that contains complete protein.

This means, compete protein contains an adequate proportion of all nine of the essential amino acids necessary for the dietary needs of humans. Whereby, some incomplete protein sources may contain all essential amino acids, but a complete protein contains them in correct proportions for supporting biological functions in the human body.

Being me, the most important meal of my day is definitely breakfast and I take effort in preparing and making sure I consume the right food and beverages. It gives me a much-needed energy boost and helps me from being so famished at lunch. Being selective and health conscious, I try to avoid heavily processed, oily and sweetened food like sausages, fried bee-hoon or donuts. Therefore, my breakfast choices are either soy milk, oat milk, fruit juices, yoghurt fruit blends, oiaj (oats in a jar) or whole meal bread with low-fat cheese spread.

A morning meal is also a healthy habit if you’re watching your weight. Here’s why: as research shows that regular breakfast eaters tend to be leaner and dieters are more successful at losing weight—and keeping it off. What’s more, people who typically eat breakfast also get more fiber, calcium, vitamins A and C, riboflavin, zinc and iron—and less fat and dietary cholesterol.

10312735_10152268150617746_3140076743988725610_nWhen I received UNISOY® Instant Nutritious Soya Oatmeal, I was delighted to try this product as it fits my bill for the perfect breakfast choice. With my staple beverage, soy milk offers great nutritional benefits in a delicious and convenient way. Oatmeal, on the other hand, can help you lose weight in two ways. First, it’s packed with fiber and it keeps you feeling fuller longer. Second, a recent study reported that eating a breakfast made with “slow-release” carbohydrates—such as oatmeal—3 hours before you exercise may help you burn more fat. I can’t help but to love this sachets!

Personally, I would prefer a thicker oat meal texture as compared to oat drink which feels lighter and not too filling for me. So the ratio goes like this;

1 sachet (40g) + 100ml = Oat Meal Porridge

1 sachet (40g) + 200ml = Oat Drink

I always have 2 sachets at one go! Thicker and creamier! Like I say, it still depends on if this beverage will be your breakfast or just a beverage to go along with your bread, etc? I have it as my main and therefore, 1 sachet wasn’t enough for me. I love adding berries and nuts to my soya oatmeal to complete it! Wholesome and yummy.
