save time with our protein nut mixes

Nuts are a great source of natural fats and protein and vital nutrients, which tend to be tricky to get in the modern diet. Our taste experts love using nuts and seeds in their snack creations, because they bring so much goodness to the table and taste amazing too!

try snacking on plant protein

Our nutritionist Jess recommends enjoying a portion of nuts and legumes everyday, as they are such a handy way to get in both great quality fats, essential vitamins and minerals.

We’ve teamed up chickpeas, edamame beans and cashews to make the ultimate super group. As well as protein, veggie protein power is a source of copper which is needed for energy metabolism, immune system support and the protection of cells from stress.
