FOODIE PRESENT IDEAS

Firstly I want to apologise for my lack of posts this past week. The due dates for my second set of uni assignments have been fast approaching and when not doing uni work I’ve been hanging out with my boyfriend, friends and consuming too much alcohol. Gotta love that student life! I’m trying my hardest to not let my blog falter too much and I’ll definitely be back to my normal blogging routine next month.

Anyway, I thought that since Christmas is fast approaching – a month tomorrow is Christmas Eve!!! – I would compile a mini gift guide. I don’t know anyone who doesn’t love food, especially free food. I’ve searched the depths of the internet and found a few gifts that any health food junkie would love.

CHOCOHOLICS CHRISTMAS HAMPER

If you’re feeling rather generous towards the chocoholic in your life then this hamper is perfect! For £150 My Healthy Nibbles have put together a 22″ hand crafted woven hamper packed with loads of chocolate goodies from brands including Sweet Freedom, Ombar and Booja Booja. I think if someone gave me this I’d cry tears of joy! There are also other hampers to choose from including a vegan hamper and a general healthy snack one.

SOURCED BOX | NOVEMBER ’16

The penultimate Sourced Box of 2016 has arrived. I can’t quite believe how fast this year has gone. I can’t wrap my head around the range of new snacks I’ve tried over the past 11 months and most of it is all down to this beauty of a subscription.

Anyway, there will be time for snacking reflection next month. Let’s dive right into the November Sourced Box.

HEALTHY SNACK BOXES

Whether I’m only just noticing them since I’m now more interested in subscription boxes or they are genuinely on the rise, there is no denying that these monthly boxes are everywhere. Think of anything and you can almost 100% guarantee that there will be some sort of subscription box for it.

For those that are interested in healthy eating, or just food in general, there are a whole load of subscriptions to choose from. There are so many that it can be overwhelming when trying to choose one so I’ve created a list in hope to narrow down your choices. In an ideal world I would be subscribed to them all! Alas, I am only subscribed to the top two in this list. However, I have searched around and found three other boxes that may take your fancy. Each are unique in their own way and the great thing about them is that most of them cost roughly the same.

‘RHYTHM 108’ CHOCOLATE HAZELNUT TEA BISCUITS REVIEW

It’s been a while since I’ve written up a snack review so I thought it was about time that I started them up again. I’m going to aim to review at least one product from each months ‘Sourced Box‘ and one product from ‘The Vegan Kind‘. There are so many healthy snacks/vegan alternatives out there that it can be overwhelming at times. Hopefully these reviews will help you in making your snack choices. You can taste the food through me!

I’m starting up these reviews again with one of my favourite brands, ‘Rhythm 108.’ Sourced Box first introduced me to this brand earlier this year and since that first appearance, they have featured twice more in the box. This time around we have the second of two of their tea biscuits – chocolate hazelnut.

THE VEGAN KIND | MYSTERY BOX

You should all know by now that I am a sucker for subscription boxes. Before discovering healthy snack subscriptions, I was subscribed to ‘Kawaii Box‘ – a monthly box filled with wonderfully cute Japanese things. Even then I was still captivated by the foodie goodness as I was also subscribed to ‘Graze.’ After being a loyal ‘Graze’ customer for almost three years, I thought it was about time for a change. ‘The Vegan Kind‘ caught my eye a while back and for only £10 a box I thought it was pretty good, especially when you consider some of the products that are in it.

One of the things that’s great about this subscription is that you don’t have to wait until the next month to receive your first box. With most subscriptions you tend to miss that months box, but ‘The Vegan Kind’ give you the option to start your subscription right away! They offer you the chance to receive either a past box or a mystery box. Being the impatient person I am, I just HAD to take up this offer and I was super excited to find myself with a mystery box.

MY FAVOURITE SNACK BARS

I say it time and time again, but I consider myself the snacking queen. I cannot go a day without having a few snacks inbetween meals. One of my go-to snacks are snack bars. Not only are they delicious but they’re also super convenient as you can just throw them in your bag and are easy to eat on the go. Over the past year I’ve discovered so many amazing brands and I’ve decided that it’s time to share them with you.

It’s time to banish those hunger pains.
