Bird’s Eye Review: The Spoke, London

IMG_9950

Just a quick post today to tell you about an awesome cafe we stumbled upon that has recently opened up in North London.  The Spoke on Holloway Road offers a bike friendly vibe but caters for all.

Although not an extensive amount of veggie options, the ones we tried were great and the Almond Milk Lattes were crazy good.

Awesome ambience

I would definitely recommend this place for a quiet coffee, a perfect place to work or drinks with friends.

Bird’s Eye Review: The Vegan Kind March Box

IMG_1279Apologies for the lateness of this review. What the hecky pecky even happened in March??  I do know, however, that The Vegan Kind box held a delightful mix of products. (mostly edible). Here’s my review of TVK17. IMG_1283

Ananda Round Up (RRP £ 2.50)

I had already tried these Wagon Wheel dupes as I was lucky enough to get them for Christmas so was happy to see them again as although rather over priced, they taste like the non vegan originals. What more could you want? http://www.anandafoods.co.uk @AnandaFoods

Rebel Kitchen Chai Mylk 330ml (RRP £1.89)

IMG_1285It’s no secret that I’m a big fan of Rebel Kitchen and again I have already tried this Chai flavour but this does’t make it any less delicious. A great fresh take on your average chocolate milk drink as it has a spicy Chai kick.  (see here for my review of this and the other products in the Rebel Kitchen range here). http://www.rebel-kitchen.com @rebel_kitchen

Emily Fruit Crisps Crunchy Banana (RRP £1.99)

An interesting one. At first I really liked the taste of these satisfyingly crunchy banana flavoured crisps but then they became a little too greasy for my taste. Not my fave.

Angelic Gluten Free Sea Salt Biscuits 150g (RRP £2.59)

These were a great surprise. I liked the Angelic chocolate cookies that had come in a previous TVK box but actually prefer this savoury variety. I slavered over some peanut butter and they were a great pre dinner snack.

TheVeganKind Tote Bag (RRP £3.00)

And finally, who doesn’t love a tote bag? I have to admit to a rather large collection. They’re just so handy! So, I was extremely happy to find The Vegan Kind Tote amongst this month’s goodies. Here’s to more The Vegan Kind merch. www.thevegankind.com  @thevegankind

Bird’s Eye Review: Nakd Protein Crunch Bars

IMG_1501

You all know that I love a snack bar and I was lucky enough to be sent a selection of the Nakd Crunch bars from Natural Balance Foods for review.

As a vegan, I often get the inevitable questions about where I get my nutrients from. I’m a big fan of The Natural Balance Foods company as their snacks are healthy and filled with minimal whole ingredients and no added sugars or nasties. Check out this link on their website which describes five iron rich foods as well as some other tips for healthy snacking. http://www.naturalbalancefoods.co.uk/community/dietary-needs/five-fantastic-iron-rich-foods/

Like the original Nakd bars, these are packed with raw ingredients but also have soya crunchies for added texture.  Although I really liked all of the varieties, out of the 4 flavours, the Strawberry was probably my favourite as it was sweet and satisfying.  The Cocoa Crunch came a close second though with it’s subtle chocolatey taste and crunchy goodness.

Find out more about the Natural Balance Foods company and their many wonderful products here and keep an eye on their website as they often have some great offers. http://www.naturalbalancefoods.co.uk

Thanks for reading.
