You may have heard of Veganuary recently, where people are going vegan for the month to try out a cruelty-free and plant-based lifestyle/diet. Whether you’re taking part, are currently vegan or are just curious to try something different and new, The Vegan Kind is the monthly subscription box for you! Each box contains 5-8 products from a variety of categories such as food, drink, toiletries, household, lifestyle and more, and everything has been checked and verified so that it’s 100% vegan-friendly and cruelty-free.
This month’s box is fantastic and offers a brilliant example of how easy it is to go vegan in 2019! Here’s what I found inside:-
Pastinos Four Cheeses Crunchy Pasta Snack (RRP £1.79)
Think you have to give up cheesy snacks when you go vegan? Think again! This delicious bag of Pastinos has a rich and creamy four cheese flavour and as they’re made 100% pasta, this snack is a low GI carb and free from artificial flavours, colours, MSG and hydrogenated fats. I really liked these and would definitely buy them again!
Peakz Crunchy Hazelnut Chocolate Squares (RRP £1.20)
How cute is this bag of Peakz? Featuring crunchy wholegrain and hazelnut flavoured squares which have been dunked into Belgian dark chocolate, these moreish bites are perfect for a mid-afternoon snack. Free from palm oil, high in fibre and fortified with Vitamin B12 and Iron.
Quibbles Sour Cream And Onion Cashews (RRP £1.25)
I love cashews so I was happy to see this Sour Cream and Onion flavoured bag from Quibbles. Made in Britain, these savoury cashews are absolutely delicious!
NuGo Nutrition Dark Chocolate Pretzel Bar (RRP £1.99)
For a post-gym/workout snack to refuel your body, you can’t go wrong with these bars from NuGo Nutrition. This one is Dark Chocolate Pretzel with a hint of Sea Salt for that awesome crunchy chocolate/salty taste sensation and it’s SO good! Packed with 12g of plant-based protein and gluten-free.
Bounce V Life Cacao Peanut Energy Ball (RRP £1.79)
I love Bounce balls and regularly buy them online to have as post-gym snacks or as a breakfast/snack on the go if I’m in a hurry. They have a whole range of vegan-friendly energy balls called V Life and this Cacao Peanut is one of the newest additions to this line. It contains 10g of plant-based protein, is gluten-free and free from preservatives – the perfect snack for your gym bag!
Kings Elite Vegan Prostrips (RRP £1.50)
Looking for a vegan alternative to beef jerky? This is it! This vegan-friendly protein snack is made from marinated, air-dried vegetable protein strips for a satisfyingly chewy and savoury snack whenever you fancy it. Each pack contains over 29% protein too so no wonder it’s a bestseller at The Vegan Kind supermarket.
Umberto Giannini Pouf Magic Wash Dazzling Shampoo (RRP £7)
This month’s non-food product is a bottle of shampoo from Umberto Giannini. Designed for hair that’s been cropped or cut into choppy laters, this lightweight and fresh shampoo adds manageability and a sublime shine, whilst also being hydrating. I don’t have short hair but I’m tempted to give it a go to see what it’s like anyway.
Macacha Protein Shake in Peace Vanilla (RRP £2.99)
The last product in this month’s The Vegan Kind box is a sachet serving of Macacha Protein Shake and you’ll receive either the Peace or Energy blend. I received the former which is a tasty Vanilla flavour with a subtle hint of Lavender and Basil. Easy to mix with your favourite nut milk/dairy-free alternative, each serving contains a whopping 19g of plant-based protein.
At the bottom of the box, I found a recipe card for Cauliflower Buffalo Wings which sounds very tasty!
