Forage & Graze was created by Cara and influenced by the combination of a Gluten Free & Paleo lifestyle. The products are handmade in New Zealand and loaded with unrefined nutrient-dense whole food ingredients and also contain no refined sugar, no grains and no dairy.
I was grateful enough to receive a variety of goodies from the Forage & Graze range to review. I was interested to see how I would find this range. I have always been more of a cooked breakfast kind of girl having never been very fond of cereals and had no interest in swapping trail mixes with girls who had packed them for school lunch.
My favourite by a long shot was the Wild Mixes closely followed by the Biltong. I pretty much adore everything in this range however the addition of the Biltong in the Wild Mix added an unique and surprising combination of flavours.
They're the perfect on-the-go snack to take with you on road trips or as a mid-afternoon snack. They're also vacuum packed which ensures fresh, moist and delicious goodness! I was so in love with these I pretty much devoured the three packets within 24 hours - hence the lack of photos. I promise I'll pop photos of these products up the second I try them again!
As for the Granolas - I received one of each.
In my Ecology Acacia Bowl I paired the Forage & Graze Berry Good Granola with fresh sliced banana, chopped strawberries and a sprinkling of blueberries. I poured over home-made vanilla and cinnamon macadamia nut milk sweetened with dates. It made a great Paleo friendly alternative to your traditional grain filled muesli. You'd be surprised at the flavours and textures that are replicated. Personally, I'd take this Granola mix over muesli any day of the week!
I used the Forage & Graze Maple Pecan Perfection Granola as part of my upcoming Paleo Apple Berry Crumble recipe. The combination of nuts and seeds made it a perfect topping and the Maple flavoured paired well with the maple stewed fruit.
I served them in my Stevens Simply Sky Blue Ramekins and added a scoop of home-made Coconut & Vanilla Ice Cream using my new The Smart Scoop by Breville. Alternatively, I'd suggest using Nice Cream or Oob Organic Ice Cream.
