Noble's Plant Based Hot Drinks
Noble's plant based hot drinks have come along at the most perfect time for me. I have been researching healthy alternatives to drinking tea and coffee but something that packs quite a punch so that I don't feel like I am missing out. I sit down every evening to a cup of tea and some chocolate. It's a rare occasion that the devil on my shoulder doesn't win. I fight with myself every day to try and kick this habit because I don't like eating sugar (that's actually incorrect - I don't like putting my body under the stress of processing it and all the negative affects that go along with it). I am a very healthy eater most of the time so one day I'll tell myself not to be so hard on myself and enjoy a little of what chocolate has to offer, then on other days I will beat myself up and tell myself I am undoing all the other good. It's a vicious circle that we are all too familiar with, and one that I see myself living with forever.
In the meantime however, I will continue to find healthy alternatives to drinking tea (which cannot be drunk without the chocolate so it's a double whammy!) and coffee (which I will drink to try and stop myself reaching for the chocolate because I can't do coffee and chocolate (unless it's a mocha), it's just not the same - I know, I'm very complicated with my tea/coffee drinking!). So, I have tried fruit teas, most of which don't cut it for me. The best ones I have found are teapigs, particularly the fruit ones which I do like but they don't do a good enough job of steering me away from the tea + chocolate option.
I have also tried dropping in some pieces of fruit to my water to flavour it, which does work but this is more for during the day to stop my drinking water from getting too boring. I don't like drinking water in the evening after my dinner (can't explain it but it quite often gives me a sore tummy). So for me drinking water ends about half an hour before my evening meal. Hence my dilema when it comes to the evening. No matter what time of the year it is, my evening drink must be a hot drink (unless of course it's a chilled glass of champagne but that's a whole other story and not one to talk about when I'm trying to write about healthy options).
So I got excited when I discovered Noble's plant based hot drinks.

They are packed with superfoods, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants so no guilty feelings needed. They vary slightly in price depending on the flavour but are in around £30.
