Here is what I have been eating:
Veg spaghetti bolognaise made with soya mince and lots of chilli peppers:
Spag bol too but this time with pasta twists:
Soya 'chicken style' pieces in a basil sauce (bought not home made ; ) ) with spaghetti:
And now for the sweet stuff! Here is a picture of some cupcakes I took into work for a colleague's birthday. Someone even asked me for the recipe (and was very really surprised to find out they contained vinegar and no eggs!) Vegan baking is the best!
I was also lucky enough to receive a lovely package in the post yesterday. It was from natural balance foods (http://www.naturalbalancefoods.co.uk/) who make the yummy Nakd bars and Trek bars, both of which I adore.
They are also a hit with other bloggers living in England- Mi (http://wholefoodswholeme.wordpress.com/) and Peony (http://www.cosmicwild.blogspot.com/) have also blogged about their enjoyment of these products.
Anyway, I emailed the company to tell them how much I like their products and they were kind enough to send me a huge box of freebies in the post! I was so excited to receive the package and it even contained a hand written note from the company!
Here is the box of goodies:
I was definitely ready to be happy- in fact happy is a major understatement!
After opening...Contained in the box was:
3 Trek bars (flavours were Mixed Berry, Cocoa Brownie & Peanut & Oat)
3 Nakd bars (flavours were Berry Cheeky, Apple Pie & Cocoa Loco)
4 Nakd Nibbles (flavours were Berry Cheeky, Apple Pie, Cocoa Loco & Banana Bread)
3 Nakd Raisins- fruit juice soaked raisins (flavours were Cherry, Orange & Lemon)
All made from natural ingredients (fruit and nuts) and even better all totally vegan!
This box made my day! I am also in a great mood now because it is half-term at school so no full-time work for a week (although I am still working my other job- the library but I love that so it doesn't really seem like work!)
