Bring on the weekend, and by the weekend we mean those joyous sleep-ins and Saturday night cocktails. A truly remarkable week it has been. In light of the first week of August coming to a close, we bring you another one of Remix’s Friday Faves.
If I had a dollar for every time my parents told me to take vitamin C whenever I was suffering from the flu, I'd be able to buy a franchise of pharmacies. Although most of us strive for a healthy diet, a decent sleeping pattern and a little bit of exercise in our weekly regime, sometimes a little boost can prove to be invaluable. What better way to increase your health than a monthly pack of vitamins that can provide the extra bit of energy and nutrition you need? Well Vitally are here to deliver. The new sought after craze involves customised packages of vitamins delivered to your very doorstep, and boy am I here for it. Vitally do monthly subscriptions of personalised vitamin packs with the choices of B-Vitamins, Vitamin D, Vitamin C, Magnesium and more, each containing 30 daily vitamin packs, customised with your name on them. And if it couldn't be any more beneficial, Vitally have now become eco-friendly with their compostable packaging. Created from plant-derived film, the vitamin packs can now be thrown away without harming the earth, meaning you never have to feel bad about feeling good!

BurgerFuel Chook Free Burger
Made with a chicken-free chick’n patty, this gourmet mini-sized burger is a tasty vegan take on it famed predecessor and distant meat-based relative; the Chook Royale. Because it’s mini, it’s the perfect trial size for those wanting to dabble in meat-free alternative proteins. Served crumbed and crispy, the chick’n patty has 33% less fat than a regular piece of crumbed chicken, is a great source of dietary iron, and the production has 90% less impact on resources. Basically, there’s a whole lot of reasons to try it, and zero reasons not to.
