Snacks that I have been enjoying recently!

I really like nakd bars!

I have written about these before but I hadn't eaten them in a while and forgot how tasty they are! I think my favourite is the cocoa-loco one (not pictured above) which basically tastes like a fruity brownie! : ) I tried the 'Berry Cheeky' bar today- the purple bar in the picture and it was yummy!

I have always enjoyed porridge for breakfast but have recently been having it as a snack or as a dessert. I added some peanut butter to the porridge above, which really added to the flavour and was a great way to get some healthy fats in me! In fact, I was enjoying it so much that I was halfway through before deciding to take a picture of it (hence the rather unattractive looking bowl!) I have read about other bloggers who enjoy nut butters in their 'oatmeal' but had never tried it myself, sticking to eating it 'plain' with soya milk. However, porridge with nut butters will now be a regular feature on my menu!

Talking of nut butters, I am currently on the hunt for new ones to try. I have tried cashew nut butter, which although was pretty tasty, I found it a little bland in comparison with peanut butter. Maybe it was just the particular brand that I tried; I expected to love it because cashew nuts are one of my favourite nuts to eat raw.
I continue my quest for new and yummy nut butters....

I actually saw walnut butter the other day... but it was waaaay too expensive to purchase :o(

Oooh walnut- I would love to try that... shame it was so expensive : ( I guess it is because it is so unusual.

I will be going to one of my favourite health food shops on Friday with my mum so hopefully they might have some exciting nut butters there!

wow glad to see another vegan blog! Well done!! Why are you trying to gain weight by the way?

Emma said...

Hi Gemma!

hehee my blog is certainly not as good as some other ones out there- my photography for example certainly leaves a lot to be desired! I do enjoy writing it and I have 'met' some great vegan bloggers out there!

I am trying to gain weight because I recently lost weight due to stress and need to gain some back for health reasons. I am currently eating loads of healthy and nutritious food as well as plenty of treats, which hopefully will help me get back to optimum health!
