Introducing 'The Real Food Source'
For those of you who've been following me for a while now, you will have heard me talk about this company before.
My involvement has been growing over the past few months and so today I wanted to bring you up to speed and formally introduce you...feel free to pop over and say 'Hi' to the guys to show a little bit of love!
The 'Real Food Source' is a company I am pretty passionate about. REAL. FOOD. SOURCE. Speaks for itself really!
I first came cross them back in late 2010 before this blog had even been conceived, back at a time when the plant based wholefoods lifestyle had only just begun to intrigue me. They were a small company who had started out selling chia seeds at the very best prices I had come across anywhere in the UK (and believe me when I say I had done a lot of reseach!), so from that first moment my custom was on board. As the months passed and their stock list of allergy friendly, gluten free ingredients grew along with my interest in wholefoods and the advent of my blog, we began to correspond a relationship developed.
I began writing recipe blog posts for them to demonstrate the ways in which their ingredients could be used. Now in more recent months things have kicked off on a whole new level, a newly redeveloped and re-branded website, complete with photography of all the ingredients (courtesy of moi!), more and more product lines added to an ever growing list based on our own discoveries and customer feedback. Plus now....the for the even more exciting part, they have launched their very first product... a 'Free From' coconut sugar chocolate!
Check out this link for more information about the product but below I extracted some key info from their website:
"Our very own organic coconut sugar chocolate! Wonderful 72% cocoa solids certified chocolate couverture bars made with the very same ingredients we sell online here at the RealFoodSource. It’s wonderful chocolate taste comes from the single origin cocoa liquor and butter made produced from Dominican Republic cocoa beans. We have this chocolate produced with our organic coconut sugar, organic cocoa liquor, organic cocoa butter, and absolutely nothing else. Not even a trace of lecithin! Produced in a free from facility, there is no egg, no gluten, no nuts, no dairy, no soya or any other vegetable oils. While many leading brands of chocolate state they may contain traces of one or more of the above allergens our chocolate does not. Also suitable for vegans!"
I also have pleasure in being able to offer my readers a 15% discount on their first order of this chocolate all you need to do is type 'INCCAKECHOCS' for the discount code When you add the chocolate to your shopping basket. Unfortunately this offer is only available for UK residents. I genuinely believe in this company, and can honestly say that their prices are some of the best (if not the best) you will find in the UK and their ethos on wholefoods is also very similar to my own which is so important.
Please note, this is not a sponsored post in any way... this is simply and honestly a company I have developed a close working relationship with and I wanted to take this opportunity to reveal all to my readers and give you the opprotunity to get involved too! You will hear their name pop up from time to time and, if you are anything like me, it's nice to get a feel for who 'these people are'. Or maybe you are not like me and couldn't care either way...! :-)
Have a little browse around and whilst your are there fee free to check out the recipe tab with the back catalogue to see all the recipes I have compiled for them over the last year or so! (you'll probably notice that there are quite a few spin offs from this blog!) Here's a little photomontage below to get you going.... plus the most recent Easter themed recipe i've posted there today. Chocolate coconut nests, with date and coconut vanilla eggs!
I will be sure to keep you posted on any more exciting up coming developments. It's an exciting time for me and building links with other companies to spread the world of whole food goodness can never be a bad thing, right?
