THE VEGAN KIND | APRIL ’17

I should probably be studying for my exam right now but alas I am here writing a blog post. I call this productive procrastination. I know you’re all eagerly awaiting a peek into this months The Vegan Kind box so I thought I shouldn’t make you wait any longer.

WHAT I ATE IN LONDON

Firstly I want to apologise for the lack of posts this past month. I’ve been so caught up with uni that any free time I’ve had to focus on my blog and YouTube I’ve been putting it solely on YouTube. Now that my classes have finished though and all that’s left is to study for my one exam, I’m going to make sure that my blog is back on its A-game.

So, I thought that my first post in this comeback should be a little what I eat in a day post. But this isn’t just your average food diary. I’ve just returned from a trip down south visiting my Grandad with my sister where we also spent a day in London. I thought it would be interesting to share with you guys what I ate while I was there.

PANCAKES

I’ve always thought very fondly of pancake day. In primary school, whenever the Tuesday before Lent rolled around, I would be ready for two little scotch pancakes topped with jam. My school must have also shared these fond thoughts as we would always have a second day titled ‘Pancake Day 2’ before the Easter holidays. My Dad would also always make pancakes for dessert after dinner and I would load golden syrup onto mine. Simple but sweet unlike my sister who always wanted to put a bit of everything on hers but was never allowed.

Yesterday my Mum made pancakes from one of those ready made mixes but I wanted to make my own. Last year I opted for Deliciously Ella’s sweet potato pancakes which I topped with banana & Sweet Freedom choc shot if I remember correctly. This year I decided to look through my newer recipe books and hunt for a new pancake recipe to try. Here I found another recipe from Ella in her new book Deliciously Ella with Friends: blueberry pancake stack.

AN EVENING WITH DELICIOUSLY ELLA

I very rarely go to book signings. The idea of having to queue up just to briefly chat for a few seconds with the author before being rushed away has never really appealed to me. However, when I saw that Ella Mills (formally Woodward) was doing not only a signing in Glasgow in support of her new recipe book ‘Deliciously Ella with Friends‘ but also a Q&A session I jumped at the chance to go. As you probably all know, I am a huge believer in living a healthy, balanced lifestyle and my main concern in this is always food. Ella is one of the people that continues to inspire me to eat well while also encouraging me to actually get into the kitchen and cook (something I’m not very confident with).

SOURCED BOX | FEBRUARY ’17

Firstly I want to apologise for my disappearance over the past two weeks. The end of last month and the whole of this month is pretty hectic. Turns out I’m not overly good with balancing uni work, a social life and my other interests and it’s unfortunately the latter that suffers most. However, I’ve made time this evening to write up my monthly Sourced Box post.

What with February being the month of Valentines Day, this months box heavily reflects that. From heart shaped snacks to indulgent chocolate, who needs true love when you have snacks?
