Top 3: Vegan Snack Edition

When I tell people you eat vegan, they generally have two questions. 
1) Why? 
2) So what exactly do you eat?
They then generally proceed to tell me that they could never do it because they'd miss chicken nuggets.  
In answer to the second question I always say that I've probably got the most unhealthy diet in the world, I definitely don't only eat lettuce and I feel like the only person on Earth who hates avocado. 

I'm trying to be more healthy, I really am, but my sweet tooth isn't going anywhere and sometimes healthy snacks just won't do. Also, I generally don't like a lot of 'healthy' foods.
Here are my three favourite vegan snacks for when an apple just ain't cutting it.

Ice Cream
I've always been boring when it comes to ice cream flavour choices. I know there are plenty of dairy free options on the market but 'smooth vanilla' from Swedish Glace is my absolute favourite. It tastes just like the Hagan Daaz dairy version.

Alpro pots
Love these things so much! They come in lots of flavours. Special shout out to the chocolate, really tasty and less than 100 calories! They're a bit like a yoghurt but they aren't kept in the fridge. I love these for breakfast. One of these and a cup of coffee and I'm good to go. 

These are so moreish! I'm actually ashamed of how much of this I've gone through. Fudge was something I knew I was going to miss switching from veggie to vegan so I was super happy to find this in Morrisons. It being stocked is so hit and miss that I have actually bought the box on a past occasion so that I would never have to go too long without it. 

What are your favourite dairy free snacks?

February Favourites

Another month down calls for another round up of things I've been loving.

Reading πŸ‘“  
The Woman in Cabin 10 by Ruth Ware.
Granted I'm only on book 5/17 but this has been my favourite of my reading challenge so far! It's been a long time since I read a book in two days but I just couldn't put this down. I never saw the ending coming! 

Watching πŸ“Ί

CSI. I don't know how it takes me so long to get around to some shows but I've recently started on CSI. Naturally I started on the original as well as the Miami and New York versions. Annoyingly Sky insists on airing them in the wrong order so I've had to dedicate a whole section of my planner to keeping track of which episodes I've seen. The original series remains my favourite and I'm more than a little bit obsessed with Gil Grissom.

Beauty πŸ’„ πŸ’…
Elf palette. 
As somebody lusting over the Nars blush palettes but not willing to pay their price this version from ELF is perfect. Not only do you get four shades in one palette but they're all different shades/colours so they can be used for pretty much any look you're going for. At only £7.50 this is an absolute bargain!

Beauty sponges. 
I have a serious love hate relationship with beauty sponges, in that I've always hated them. I have come to the realisation that a damp beauty sponge is the best applicator for my Lock It Foundation, though. It's the heaviest foundation I own so I guess the sponge helps with the blending.

Listening πŸŽΆ 
I've pretty much had five songs on a constant loop this month.
All Time Low - Dirty Laundry
Selena Gomez - It Ain't Me
Lana Del Rey - Love
Billy Joel - Tell Her About It
Lady Gaga - Million Reasons
I'm doing that thing where I'm listening to them on repeat until I end up hating them.

Loving ♡ 
My new layout. I bought a layout from Pipdig a couple of weeks ago and it couldn't have been more simple to install. I'm still playing around with some bits but I'm glad I finally took the plunge and I'd definitely recommend them if you're looking to upgrade.

What music have you got on loop at the minute?
