Hiking

5 Reasons why you need to try walking this Summer

Yeah I get, you already know how to walk. Left foot, right foot etc. Getting out into the countryside isn’t quite the same however!

Walking, trekking and hiking. They’re all different grades of much the same thing: Getting outside on your own two feet. 

There’s some debate between the exact differences between the three. Broadly speaking hiking is at the more hardcore end of the scale with multi-day adventures across physically taxing terrain not being unusual.

Vegan Protein vs Whey Protein

With the upcoming release of our latest product, the Millionaire Crunch we think it’s the right time to explore the differences between vegan protein and whey based products. Is one better than the other and is there a reason for you to consider moving towards plant-based products and away from whey?

Protein Powders and protein bars are an undeniably convenient way to increase your protein intake which is especially important for health-conscious individuals, athletes and dieters.

Over the last few years veganism has experienced massive growth with a rise of nearly 600% in the US and UK between the years of 2014 and 2017.
