September has arrived and I am about to start my second year of university. This month’s ‘The Vegan Kind‘ box has arrived just in time to start fueling me for the long hours of study and essay writing ahead and it’s a good ‘un.
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.
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.
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.
It might sound ridiculous but I think I have a fear of hunger. Go back three years ago and it was a fear of food itself. I like to think of this as the perfect example as to how eating problems can linger for years and how once you overcome one obstacle, another arises. Well, to this obstacle i’m saying enough is enough. I want to be able to eat when I’m hungry and stop when I’m satisfied and comfortably full. I want to not have to bring a stash of snacks with me wherever I go and not plan the days events around my meals. I’m hoping this post will not only potentially help others recognise their own fear of feeling hungry, but will also encourage me to get my butt in gear and give this intuitive eating malarkey a go for real.
