Monday to FriYay with a Spring in Your Step!!! Eat your way to healthy while saving the pennies with Excalibur!
Welcome Back Guys and Gals!!
Guys and Gals… drum roll 😊
Today I present to you the Excalibur Parallex Dehydrator! – **this is not a sponsored post. It is a great piece of kit that I want you all to know about because I love it. **
Excalibur is a dehydrator which comes in several sizes (4, 5 and 9 tray). It has plastic trays with mesh screen (BPA free) and can be used to dehydrating fruits, veggies, meat, nuts, proving dough for making bread and yoghurt.
You can dehydrate pretty much anything with no fuss. My mind was blown when I realised I did not need to spend a huge amount of money on dried snacks anymore and could do it myself in the comfort of my own home. Not to mention, I would know exactly what was going in my food. No scary preservatives or chemicals!!
Before I posted this post, I tested this piece of kit out quite a few times and I love it! Can you tell? 😊
My husband and I went on a wild camping trip to Loch Achray in Scotland and I wanted to have gourmet meals whilst on our trip, as you do, so… I dried some fruit (trail mix) for snacks and veggies to make a nice Chow Mein, Moroccan feast and Bolognese. It was extremely easy and tasty. It was so good I forgot to take pictures to show you guys and gals.
More recently I have been using it to dry fresh herbs (this is much better than buying store bought dried herbs every time you need them) and making smoothie powders. I am not a fan of bulking agents in some of the stuff you get on supermarket shelves, not to mention the sugar content so I make it all myself.
Did I mention you can make your own dried tea? Sounds a little over the top but the flavour is amazing! My favourite is ginger tea. I chop it up, pop it in the dehydrator and let it do all the work then… I have tea!
Guys and Gals… if you cannot already tell, I love the Excalibur Dehydrator so I’m giving you the link for where you can get one. Add it to your wish list. If you buy it, let me know what you think. I love hearing from you! You can also get it pre-loved on sites like Facebook Market Place or Ebay to save on the pennies. I got mine preloved and it works great! 😊
Remember to live purposefully and be the best version of yourself!
