My October TVK Box

As some of you already know, I subscribe to The Vegan Kind and receive a wonderful box of goodies every month. Usually most products are suitable for a gluten free diet but unfortunately this month two of the treats weren't! But then I discovered a little pot hidden beneath the large onion bhaji snack bag which more than made up for my slight disappointment!

Butternut Squash, Carrot & Quinoa Nut Roast GF

I've been making this awesome nut roast regularly throughout the Summer. Quick and easy to prepare, it's packed full of protein from the quinoa and the nuts and the butternut squash and carrots give it a subtle sweetness as well as a lovely warm, orangey tinge.

Gluten Free Granola GF

Did you know that granola was invented in the 19th century? Originally called granula, it was created by Dr James Caleb Jackson, a huge believer in the benefits of water therapy. Dr James Caleb Jackson opened his own spa in Dansville on the site of a mineral water spring and this grew to be one of the largest water therapy centres in the world. A vegetarian, he believed that the key to good health was diet.

My September TVK Box

Life's been so hectic recently but I've just found a moment to post the review of my September box from The Vegan Kind. As usual the contents are/were awesome! Although a couple of the items aren't gluten free that really didn't matter this month..I've had people staying who were quite happy to eat them on my behalf!!

My August TVK Box

This has to be one of the best boxes I've received so far from The Vegan Kind - I know I say that every month but they do seem to be getting better and better and that definitely says something about the content of these awesome boxes!
