For the last few years, my friends at uni have done a “vegan week”, which is exactly as it sounds. For one week at the start of the year, we go exclusively vegan. It started out as a challenge to one particular member of our friend group, and slowly everybody joined in. This year, I decided to join in as well and I’ve had a lot of fun doing so! I know it’s hardly on a Veganuary scale, which I wish I had taken part in now, but it’s definitely opened my eyes a lot more to eating vegan.
For one, it’s a lot easier than I thought it would be. For things like cheese and meat, there are such a selection of alternatives out there to choose from. Who’d have thought that you’d be able to find vegan squirty whipped cream? But you can! I don’t eat meat every day, anyway, but I’ve realised I do have a lot more dairy than I realised. Overall, it was a lot of fun having an excuse to experiment more with my cooking! And I’ve decided to make an effort to incorporate more vegan meals into my diet, and cut down on my dairy intake.
Hi guys, today I’m back with a review of Matcha NOW green tea and their new flavours! I was fortunate enough that the people at Matcha NOW sent me over some bottles so I could try them out – thank you so much!
The company only started selling in the UK last year, coming over from the US, and started off with their classic matcha green tea flavour. Now they have released two new flavours – Peppermint, and Ginger & Turmeric.
The drink comes in a regular sized bottle, but has a very lovely mechanism to keep the matcha fresh. Instead of pre-mixing the matcha, there is a twist cap where the spout of the bottle would usually be. The matcha is stored in here, and you would twist it to release the powder as and when you decide to drink it! All you have to do is give it a little shake, and your fresh Matcha NOW green tea is ready to go.
I visited the Pop Up Geeks again, and this time round they had a Rick and Morty themed cocktail bar! I love Rick and Morty, and when I first met my boyfriend that was one of the first things we talked about – so it was a definite that I was dragging him with me to check it out!
If you haven’t read about my last visit with the Pop Up Geeks, you can read about it here. They were doing a Harry Potter theme called Perilous Potions, and it was amazing! Now, onto Rick and Morty…
