SOURCED BOX | JULY ’17

This month’s Sourced Box is packed full with a mix of familiar and not-so-familiar brands to keep you going through the hot summer weather (although us Scots may beg to differ on the hot front). In July’s box we’ve got a bit of everything from granola to raw chocolate to fruit crisps so without further ado let’s dive right in.

SOURCED BOX | JUNE ’17

As I write this you would not think it was June. The sky is clouded and the rain is pouring. A contrast to the weather we’ve had over the past couple of weeks. I honestly feel as if our summer has came and went. However, it’s not all doom and gloom and the arrival of this months Sourced Box has brightened up this week significantly.

THE VEGAN KIND | MAY ’17

I know this post is later than usual and that’s because I was seriously contemplating not posting this months box at all. Why? Well, I had an unfortunate incident with one of this months products, or so I believe. When I write these posts I want to be 100% true with you guys and so when I say that this box has been my least favourite I want you to know that it’s for good reason and that reason will be explained. However, despite the misfortune surrounding this box I continue to look forward to all future TVK boxes.

SOURCED BOX | MAY ’17

First year of uni complete and my summer has officially began! My plans for the summer of 2017 is to drink myself into oblivion with my friends, go on my first ever group holiday without my parents, go to a bunch of theme parks with my family and hopefully spend more time making things from my collection of recipe books. Snacks will obviously be needed in between all of this and Sourced Box have me off to a great start with their May box. With the perfect mix of sweet and savoury, I can’t wait to dive in.

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.
