Easter Cake


Hello Loose shoppers,

Thank you for your on-going support shopping locally and plastic-free with us. We hope you're doing alright in this rather different kind of spring and that you can enjoy the fresh warmer air without a mask at times.

Easter is coming up next week, and even though lockdown is easing, many of us will still be home enough to whip up a golden, fluffy, healthy and really delicious Easter Cake!

Because caring for and making healthier foods for ourselves is a good little start to creating the positive change we all need in the world.

We know you want some Bliss Balls!

Hello, dear people of Stroud,

Have you ever wondered what Bliss Balls are and how to make them? 

Bliss Balls are also called energy balls or protein balls, but we prefer the term 'Bliss Ball'. I mean, why wouldn't you?!

Usually, they are made of nuts and dates, but one can vary by exchanging nuts for seeds, dates for other dried fruit or sweet things like honey. The possibilities are literally endless, which is really exciting on the one hand and the other; it's tricky getting them just right.

Spring Cleaning!

Hello Loose shoppers,

After the snowdrops and crocuses have dared to show their delicate selves, and now the daffodils are in full bloom, it's fair to say that spring is finally all over the land!

What better time than now to do a spring clean in your home?! We have just the right products for you. 

Chocolate Chip Cookies


Hello everyone,

As our world's state is still in utter chaos, how about baking some healthier chocolate chip cookies using our unique Fairy Poo?! Click here for a recipe by the Domestic Gothess. 

What's Fairy Poo, and why should you take notice of it?

Fairy poo is organic raw chocolate covered mulberries, kind of like tiny healthy chocolate chips that look like; what one might imagine fairy poo to look like! 

How to use dulse seaweed and why you should.

Hello and happy Monday morning,

It's another wet, foggy and dark one today, but remember spring is just underneath that wet, slippery mud.

Which reminds us of our DULSE seaweed from Ireland available at Loose! An ingredient you should know about.


Dulse is a versatile, protein-rich, medicinal ingredient, that we think everyone should throw into their cooking. 


Adding dulse or kombu adds extra masses amounts of minerals, and is said to reduce excess flatulence when digesting pulses. 

Protein Powder Recipes


Did you know Loose now stocks Hemp, Pea Protein Powder?! We think it can be snuck into all kinds of things, such as: the obvious smoothie, but also brownies, cakes, energy balls, muesli bars, cookies, crumble or burgers!

Especially if you are eating predominantly plant-based it's a good idea to make sure that your protein levels are happy. You can take care of that by eating the rainbow, wholegrains and pulses. However, sometimes a quick flick of a spoon of protein powder in your breakfast bowl or smoothie is a neat, quick, smart way to go.

Savoury snacking: Super Seeded Crackers

Hello Loose shoppers,

It's a foggy winter's day and even though a warming stew would be a suitable recipe to share, we think you're pretty good at throwing those together yourself. But how about a healthy protein-rich and tasty cracker recipe?

We all know that we like to snack throughout the day, right? And how to avoid going for the 'bad stuff', but instead reach for a protein-mineral-good-fats-rich cracker to go with your favourite hummus?
