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?

SOURCED BOX | JANUARY ’17

A year ago I received the first ever Sourced Box. 12 months later I still have no regrets about signing up to this healthy snacking subscription. I still feel that same excitement I felt that very first month whenever I receive the dispatched email.

The first box of 2017 is packed full of treats to give your body that extra nutritious boost we all feel we need after the festive period. From vegetable crisps to raw chocolate, you can start the year off on a health high.

THE CHRISTMAS BALANCE

With only a few more days to go until the big day, no doubt you’ll have already dived into the mince pies and boxes of Quality Street. As much as I am all about eating whatever you want – especially at Christmastime – I’m also all about balance and even though that balance may go a bit skew-whiff during December, I do try my best to keep some healthy snacks on hand. Here are just a few healthy festive treats that you should try over the next week or so to let your body know that you’re not COMPLETELY neglecting proper nutrition (unfortunately the fruit in a mince pie does not count as one of your 5-a-day).

CHRISTMAS PUD NAKD. BAR

Healthy brands that put a Christmas twist on their products please me immensley. This Christmas Pud nakd. bar is one of my favourite flavours. Made with nothing but dates, cashews, raisins & a hint of natural flavouring, this raw bar has a true Christmassy taste while also counting as one of your 5-a-day. pudding-de-noel-z

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.
