I can’t be the only person who is sometimes, with the best will in the world too busy to rustle up a healthy hot meal. When I arrive home late I find myself sometimes hankering after an old style 'pot noodle' or boil in the bag something or other for convenience ! Well just how thrilled was I to come across Lifestyle Organic at the Natural and Organics Product show. I was offered a little bowl of Organic Vegetable Buckwheat . My colleague tried the Organic Shiitake Rice mix from the Ready to cook Asian style mixes from a brilliant brand - Lifestyle Organic.
Mine tasted yummy and I looked around to see where they were chopping all the organic veg only to see the busy chef opening packets, emptying the dried contents into a pan and covering with water and between 4 and 10 minutes later (depending on the variety) – voila ! Excellent food.! It’s a really extensive range too,
These Ready to cook mixes are brilliant for holidays, camping trips, when you’re travelling or if you need to rustle up a healthy lunch at work and have only a microwave, they’re great to have with any evening meal and best of all despite the convenience the ingredients really are healthy, no GM or scary flavourings, no artifical sweeteners or hydrogenated vegetable oils.
My faves are the Organic Pumpkin Polenta and the Organic Vegetable Spelt and my kids love the millet and mango porridge from the Sweet mixes but theres loads I haven't tried yet.
They inexpensive too at around £1.79 per packet– so stock up you’ll always be able to rustle up gourmet dish in under 10 minutes.
You should soon be able to find them in your local supermarket (ask them to stock them !!) or online at
