TheVeganKind #3

Say Hi to Sweep, he decided to join me for my first TheVeganKind* box of the New Year. As he decided to sit on my stool over the contents before I took the below image, I thought I'd snap him. At this rate all 11 might be featured.
Clearspring Organic - Dried Daikon 40g RRP £2.49
Daikon is your source for Vitamin C, calcium and iron, it helps to aid the digestion of oily foods too. This has been apart of Japanese folk medicine for a very long time. Simply soak it in lukewarm water for 30-45 minutes, remove and squeeze out excess water, this water can be used as stock either alone or with different seasoning or vegetables. I think I'm going to try this within a nice Saturday soup recipe as it's said to be good for a hearty soup during the winter.


TheVeganKind Recipe Ringbinder (free if this is your third box)
Comes in handy, I don't know about any of you, I lose papers very easily within my home - I've put something down, it's moved and nobody knows where to find it. Having a ringbinder to put past & future recipe cards within - Very well thought of!

Landgarten Organic Dark Chocolate Pumpkin Snack 55g RRP £1.99
These were stolen from me *sounds the alarm* My nan wanted to try these out, she loves pumpkin and combined with dark Belgian chocolate (Diabetics, always want more chocolate lol). The pumpkin seeds are grown exclusively within the companies farm in Australia, roasted in small batches. Can we just focus on the packaging for a second, it gives it this swuave, oh so cool appeal, kind of - I want to take these to a wine bar with me lol.

Perry Court Farm - Air Dried Pear Crisps 20g RRP £0.75
British grown produce, Perry Court Farm is in Kent. They 100% grow their own pears, one bag is less than 70 calories. Contains no added sugar, oil, salt, flavouring or preservatives, naturally air dried and are crispy and crunchy as other packets of crinkle cut crisps.

Considerit Chocolate Mini Truffle Bar (orange flavour) RRP £1.90
Ideal for those who are lactose intolerant or those with a vegan diet. If you love chocolate Considerit are thinking of you. I'm not much of a fan of dark chocolate to be fair, so it wouldn't be ideal for myself. I'm going to find a chocolate lover and see if they can tell the difference. Considerit believe their creations are so good, you'd never be able to tell that it doesn't contain dairy.

Beond - Ogranic Acai Berry Bar 35g RRP £0.99
I use products with Acai Berry within, great for the skin and of course just as equally good to eat.
Beond named their company after an ancient Greek God, Beo - God of Agriculture. It's a small, ethical company who are 100% organic. They come in a range of flavours, so there's a flavour for everyone. These come in bite size as well as full size, so you can pop one in the smallest of clutch bags, lunch boxes or even pocket so when your on the go you can snack. I quite liked it when I had it as a snack, I can be quite picky with food but it didn't taste bad at all.

Premae Skincare - Hand & Foot Cream (unisex) 10ml RRP £3.50
I tried this on my hand, the cream has a light texture, cooling, rubs and absorbs into the skin easily. I find the skin is left feeling moisturised but not greasy. I just hate how some creams turn me into butter fingers.

Total box contents worth £11.62

Even though this box is helpful and as far as I know, one of a kind but I do suppose that people want more value for money with subscription boxes. £10 + £2.95 p&p. Subscribers want that justification, hopefully in the future maybe more could be included? This month I'm trying to adjust my vegetarian ways and participate in Veganuary I am finding the adjustment a little harder than I did when I suddenly went Vegetarian 5 years ago but I'm trying and it's nice that this box came this month as I've found alternative snacks.
