Over the past couple of weeks I seem to have spent more money on food than is deemed necessary and in all honestly, I have no regrets. I recently uploaded a separate healthy snack haul on my YouTube channel and had no intention of buying any more. Clearly that intent went out the window. Instead of uploading another haul video, I thought I’d share what I bought on here. This is a foodie blog after all.
I consider myself the queen of snack bars. I always have a varied stash on hand. A trip into Holland & Barrett saw me picking up this brazil nut & cherry bar by The Primal Pantry and a banana bread nakd. bar. My reasoning for buying these was purely because they were reduced. The Primal Pantry bars are my all-time favourite raw bars but they are pretty pricey at almost £2 a bar. This one was reduced down to 89p and since the date was reasonable, I couldn’t resist! This nakd. bar isn’t my favourite flavour but at 23p I wasn’t going to complain. Later that day, I went to Morrisons with my Mum and was over the moon when I found these Rude Health bars. I had received the beetroot one in a Sourced Box and loved it and being a huge lover of all things pumpkin (yes, I am a stereotypical white girl), I’m eager to try the pumpkin one.
If you watch my Sourced Box unboxings, you will know that my love for raw chocolate brownies is real. Stick them in the microwave for a few seconds and you’ve got yourself a gooey delight! Pulsin’ have recently brought out multipacks of their raw brownies and since I still had some money left over on my Tesco giftcard (don’t ask..), I couldn’t resist picking up a pack. I’ve only ever tried the Maca Bliss flavour, but I do not doubt that I’ll love these. Next we have something else that I had tried and loved thanks to Sourced Box. I was honestly so sad at the prospect of never eating these crispy coconut curls again so when I found them in Holland & Barrett I felt as if I had hit the jackpot! Coconut with a hint of natural rock salt makes for a delicious and nutritious snack.
This final product was a bit of a splurge for me. Nut butters are one of my favourite foods and my go-to brand is usually Meridian. However, I have dipped my toes into the world of Pip & Nut and enjoyed their coconut & almond butter when I received it in the first ever Sourced Box and have wanted to try this honey cinnamon cashew butter for ages. Cashews are one of my favourite nuts and I also love cinnamon & honey – IT’S A MATCH MADE IN HEAVEN!! My reasoning for not buying it before was because it’s about £5 for a jar. I know. I don’t want to think about it! But nut butter usually lasts me a good while and we’ve got to treat ourselves every now and then, right?
