The Vegan Kind: January Box (#TVK15)


Starting the new year with my favourite food subscription box!

It feels like ages since the last vegan goodie box got delivered, truth be told it hasn't but I have gotten so addicted to the box itself that it just felt like an age (I am sure you know what I mean). When the TVK15* box arrived on my doorstep last week I couldn't wait to crack it open and see what goodies were inside and yet again, like always - not one disappointment!


Hectares Sweet Potato Crisps (35g - £1)
There isn't really much of a description needed for these as they were amazing! Sweet potatoes are my favourite and to have them as a little snack on the go was pure bliss. Sweet potatoes are full of anti-oxidants, high in dietary fibre, vitamin A, vitamin C and beta-carotene. I definitely need a huge case of these, stat!

Power of... Superfoods Cereal Pots (65g - £2.29)
A new breakfast made from 50% superfoods and 50% ultra-thin gluten free organic oats. This on the go pot is easy to make and just needs hot or cold water, 20 seconds and the spoon that comes with it in order for you to dig in! I received the Strawberry, Goji and Beetroot which was surprisingly tasty! As soon as I saw beetroot in the ingredients I was a bit dubious but I love beetroot plus with all the other nutrient dense ingredients added, you can't taste it.

Greenfrog Soapnuts (250g - £3.99)
Soapnuts are naturally free-from nasty chemicals, biodegradable and one of the most eco-friendly ways to do your laundry. I had never tried anything like this before and using nuts (no pun intended) to wash my laundry seems a very strange concept but it works! You simply put 6-8 half shells in the soap pouch provided and wash your clothes as you normally would and if you want a scented wash then you can just add your favourite essential oil to the pouch before you pop it in!

Pulsin Raspberry & Goji Raw Choc Brownie (50g - £1.79)
Brownies! Brownies are my absolutely weakness and one of my favourite desserts. The Pulsin Raw Brownies are rich in healthy anti-oxidants, vitamin C, protein and Iron without the added nasties of sugar. Definitely a hand bag friendly snack bar and tasted delicious, if this flavour doesn't appeal to you then I would definitely recommend checking out their website as they have tons of snack bars to choose from!

Clearspring 100% Fruit on the Go (100g - 89p)
With 100% fruit puree in each squeezy pack with no added sugar, salt, concentrates, added water, preservatives and E-numbers these make a great handbag essential. The purees come in three varieties; Pear, Apple & Mango and Apple & Blueberry. I got the Pear puree and it was very tasty and I loved that the only ingredients in the pack was organically grown pears.

Creative Nature Tropical Treat Bar (38g - 99p)
A detox bar with added ginger, pineapple and coconut providing nutrient dense superfood anti-oxidants. The bars are cold pressed so they lock in their nutrients and are really lovely and moist instead of being dry and hard to snack on.

This month's featured charity is Veganuary who promote veganism globally through their very own veganuary campaign which supports thousands of people wanting to try or change over to a vegan diet by taking a pledge throughout January - you can find out more on www.veganuary.com!
