Ready meals get a bad wrap for their lack of nutrition and most of the time they rank pretty unsatisfying, but in terms of convenience, they are super handy. Wouldn’t it be brilliant to get your hands on a nutritious ready meal that has all the benefits ready meals bring and none of the ‘unhealthy’ factors…Enter Field Doctor. Pioneering a new approach to food by reinventing the ready meal, these guys are switching up our view on ready meals with their nutritionally-supercharged meals. In the range, you’ll find meals that boost immunity, support heart health, cognitive health as well as delivering a real solution for people with digestive issues such as gluten intolerance, coeliac disease, IBS, and general bloating. Field Doctor even has 8 extra dishes which strictly comply with the low FODMAP diet, which is a huge step forward for IBS sufferers who usually have very limited options when it comes to convenience food. From Mediterranean hake and butterbean stew, red pepper and chickpea curry, British fish pie and Persian pomegranate chicken, the menu features a real range of meals that share one thing in common, zero nasties! Once made the dishes are flash-frozen to lock in goodness and are delivered in recyclable packaging to people’s doors, which you can then choose to microwave in just eight minutes or cook in the oven. Crammed full of colourful veg and pulses, it’s just like a home-cooked meal but without any of the hassle.
OTO Ritual Skincare
It’s a rarity that a brand from outside the beauty industry swoops in and creates a skincare range quite so amazing, but OTO has managed to absolutely nail it. Known originally for dominating the oral CBD market, OTO has used their expert knowledge of CBD to formulate the most potent CBD skincare ranges. By combining high levels of organically grown CBD isolate with powerful ayurvedic Himalayan botanicals and essential oils, RITUAL and BALANCE offer the ultimate skincare solution with a selection of serum, cream, balm and oil products that work to protect, hydrate and repair the skin, delivering optimum results. The RITUAL range supports you through the day with protective antioxidant ingredients that prevent the harmful effects of pollution and free radicals, whereas BALANCE is designed to work whilst you sleep by supporting the skin’s cellular repair process throughout the night. So, why should we incorporate CBD into our skincare routine? OTO has proven that CBD encourages repair and rejuvenation as well as bonding with free radicals, plus it works to balance the skin and alleviate inflammation, helping problem-skin conditions such as acne and eczema, whilst protecting the skin from UV damage and reducing the signs of ageing.
Taking self-care to the next level, Canamis are creating some of the coolest CBD renditions we’ve seen and they do not disappoint. From flavoured oils featuring cherry and lychee, edibles including gummies and chewing gum, to skincare targeting specific needs such as eczema and pain relief, Canamis really do add something new to the CBD scene which is refreshing and exciting. We also have to mention our favourite Canamis product, the heavenly Red Mandarin & Pomegranate CBD Bath Bomb which makes for the most indulgent self-care moment. Enriched with Epsom salts for deep muscle relaxation and essential oils for a sensory treat, this bath bomb will leave your skin feeling soft and supple. Coming in at a very close 2nd, their Strawberry CBD Gummies make us look forward to taking our supplements, they truly are the best tasting CBD product we’ve tried!

Drawing its inspiration from the Tswana meaning of ‘a secret gift’, Nêô Sephiri have created an intense facial oil that harnesses the ‘secret’ skincare ingredient, Pure Kalahari Melon Oil. Set to be the next ‘holy grail ingredient’ in the beauty and skincare industry, it contains more vitamin E than any other plant oil in the world. The Pure Kalahari Melon facial oil blend targets skin cell recovery and improves moisture balance through its high levels of linoleic acid, an omega-6, essential fatty acid that gives the skin a deep glow. Unlike other oils, it is lightweight and fast-absorbing. Indigenous to this particular region of South Africa, pure Kalahari Melon Oil is able to withstand the climate changes to survive in these extreme, arid conditions, making it a uniquely sustainable source.
