So last week I got invited to a brilliant event by Morrisons.
The UK food retailer were launching it’s newest range, NuMe a healthy eating range that looks and tastes fabulous.
The range is designed for customers searching for healthier alternatives to their favourite meals and snacks who don’t want to compromise on taste.
I was invited by Morrisions for a tasty breakfast and introduction to the range that is already rolling into Morrisons stores all over the nation.
What’s great about the NuMe range is that it’s aim is to give customers healthier alternatives to their already favourite foods at great affordable prices.
When thinking about healthy food, I usually think, boring, tasteless and expensive, the new range is none of the above! NuMe is all about the small steps needed for a healthier lifestyle, it’s not about dieting, yes it will help us drop the pounds overtime but it’s also about purchasing things that are better for us, making sure we get some of our five a day, etc. With its funky packaging with good clear labelling means customers are able to quickly see what it is they are buying, the calorie control whether it forms part of your five-a-day, or whether it’s low in fat or reduced in salt, explaining why each product is a healthier option.
There was a few reasons I was keen to hear more about the NuMe range. One, I want to get back in shape, start making healthier choices for myself and family. Secondly, I wanted to find out how this range was “healthier” and whether this could be a range I could buy to replace some of the items currently on my shopping list therefore getting the children eating more healthy food (especially Little man, who’s diet is very poor).
As many know, little man has Aspergers syndrome. There are very few foods he eats. This is extremely worrying as most of these foods are not the healthiest, they are high in fat or salt etc.
Looking at some of the products in the range, you may ask yourself how some of the products are actually better for you. What Morrisons have done here, is remove some of the ingredients that are not all that good for us and replaced it with something else much more healthier. This could be anything from not cooking something in oil, maybe grilling it instead, reducing the salt content and adding other herbs or spices that are better for us. A great example would be the sausage breakfast I had. Doesn’t sound very healthy but it was healthier than other sausages available, yet still tasted awesome. It’s the last three letters in the word “healthier” that Morrisons have taken and used to create this delicious range.
It’s true, simple small changes can lead to big ones overtime. It’s not about quick fixes but maintaining a healthier lifestyle and keeping it.
The range has everything from ready made meals (frozen and refrigerated) to products from salad dressings to yogurts. They even have a huge range of yummy treats and snacks, such as crisps or cakes.
Looking at the range, I’ve discovered a number of items that the children eat that are significantly more healthy. Little man who refuses to eat anything remotely healthy could really benefit and I’ve already started to introduce the range into our home.
Lastly, can I recommend the Beetroot & Blueberry Salsa, may sound strange but taste amazing.
