VEGFEST HAUL

It’s no secret that I love food, so it may come as a bit of a surprise to you when I say that before last weekend I had never been to a food festival before. When I first heard of Vegfest a few months ago I was eager to go and so dragged my boyfriend along with me on the Saturday of the weekend event.

Vegfest is a vegan festival where you can discover delicious vegan food, take full advantage of the free samples and get your hands on vegan friendly clothing. I’ve made it clear a number of times that I am not actually vegan, but most of my diet is actually vegan/vegetarian. I thought I would share with you the tasty treats that I bought because I definitely spent way too much money.

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.

‘TIS THE SEASON OF ADVENT (ALMOST)

With less than a month to go it’s time to start thinking about what advent calendar to get this year. Long gone are the days of your only options being Cadbury’s or character based with the not-so-great-but-tastes-like-advent-calendar-chocolate. These days you can get an advent calendar for absolutely anything. From candles to make-up to whiskey (yep, that’s a real one), you’re bound to find one that takes your fancy.

If you’re into healthy living then have I got a treat for you. I’ve found a number of healthier/vegan alternatives to the standard advent calendar so you now have no reason not to join in with the festivities.

THE PRIMAL PANTRY

When I first heard about this I was beyond excited. So excited that I ended up pre-ordering one at the beginning of September! We all know I’m a sucker for raw snack bars and the Primal Pantry are one of my favourite snack brands so this advent calendar is right up my street. 24 of the standard sized bars in one huge calendar. It includes a variety of all 7 flavours including their two new protein bars which I’ve yet to try myself. It may seem a little excessive especially when you look at the price, but if you’re into your healthy snacks like me and can afford it I reckon it’s going to be worth it.

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.
