Vegan Cuts May Snack Box

When people find out that I’m vegan there is one question I am asked more than any other question …. “what DO you eat?”. I never know how to answer it because there is just so much I do eat. The list of what I don’t eat is much shorter, and most people don’t even realise that many things they already eat are vegan. With this constant question in mind and the continued interest from all of you to learn more about a truly cruelty-free lifestyle I thought I would do a few posts touching on vegan food.

People generally assume that eating vegan food instantly means it’s health food. That isn’t always the case because there are lots of unhealthy ingredients that don’t come from animals, i.e. sugar. However, in general vegan ‘junk food’ is naturally healthier than the animal-ingredient alternatives because it doesn’t have the trans fat and all the nasty chemicals/hormones that farmers feed the animals. So my point is, vegan food isn’t always a ‘health food’ but it is always more healthy than non-vegan food.

Why the long spiel, you ask? Today’s post is to introduce you to a service I’ve been using since starting my cruelty-free lifestyle. Vegan Cuts is a subscription box service that offers two monthly boxes, a Snack box and a Beauty box. The snack box has been invaluable with helping me discover just how delicious veganism is, and how many amazing products the world has to offer. This review is of the most recent snack box for May.  Continue Reading

Protein powder – two words that previously terrified me. I thought protein powder was reserved for scrawny guys who wanted to turn themselves into Arnold Schwarzenegger-type beefcakes. I never had any desire to look like Arnie so I stayed clear …… until I became vegan, that is.

My path to veganism was both for ethics and health. Researching my health led me to understand that protein does far more than build muscle, and unlike the meat & dairy industry has us believing, it comes from many sources. Now that I knew the importance of protein I was set on making sure my diet included the best possible kind. Pea Protein is considered to be one of the best and in this review I share my very first experiences with it. Did it fatten me up? Read on to find out!  Continue Reading
