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.
Happy Christmas Eve, everyone! If you read my Adagio Autumn Teas post back in October, you’ll know that I was always planning to do a Christmas version. The time has come, and today I’ll be bringing you Adagio Teas’ Winter collection! I’m a huge tea lover, and loose leaf tea is right up my street.
While Adagio do offer some teabags, a lot of their stock is loose leaf. I always feel like you have way more variety and can try so many more delicious teas with loose leaf! And for any tea lover, a homemade mini tea hamper would be a dream! If you’re stuck for gifts for any birthdays coming up over the next few months, I’d recommend making one for your loved one (especially if they love tea). Or, if they aren’t as obsessed as I am, make them a self-care gift set and include one of Adagio’s loose leaf teas. I think something like that would be so thoughtful and special as a gift!
Welcome back, lovelies! I’m so excited for today’s post, and I’ve been waiting for weeks to bring this to you. If I could’ve wrote about it straight away, I would have, but I wanted to try all the teas so I could give you a detailed review. I’m a huge tea lover, and was so excited when the lovely people at Adagio Teas approached me to try out their autumn and winter tea ranges. I was truly spoiled by them, and got some other goodies and accessories in the package, too! In this post, I will be talking you through the Adagio autumn teas, and my favourites.
Stay tuned for their Christmas teas range, as well – there are some mouthwatering flavours for the festive season!
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.
