We are in the midst of Winter. We are cold, cuddled up and comfortable at home. The only thing you need to accompany you during your next movie marathon (other than a blanket and a hot water bottle) are some new, delicious, foodie launches. This is what is new in the sustenance zoo.
We know BOS best for their rooibos-based drinks, and health-shots, but this brand has just launched a full-bodied, premium, organic rooibos espresso range. We love that this range bears the Rainforest Alliance seal, with their hot tea products following suit. This is the definition of a feel-good cuppa. This espresso range is made with fine cut, organic rooibos and it is naturally sweet, with subtle notes of honey. Will this be another proudly South African product that both local and international BOS fans love? The proof will be in the cup of joe!

On the green side:
This is a wholesome, plant-based nutrition range, inspired by chicken and perfected by plants. This is a protein-packed blend of plant-based ingredients, such as fava beans, pea protein, and lentil and chickpea flour, to name a few. All ingredients have been carefully selected based on their flavours, and they are all GMA and gluten free. Plant based has never tasted this good. On The Green Side tender fillets, are an alternative option to chicken and this organisation strives to bridge the gap between the price of chicken and a chicken alternative, ensuring that all nutritional value, taste and quality is upheld.
Available online, and in most retail stores and restaurants https://onthegreenside.com/
