Foxy’s Fave things 🙂
Since turning Vegan, I have found myself eating so much more fruit. I was always scared the sugar in fruit would make me fat and was always trying to stick to a low carb diet! I am literally eating the opposite to what I was before and I
My fave smoothie this week was Green Dream. 306 cals, 39g carbs, 16g fat, 2g protein.
1 celery stalk
The avocado makes it real creamy
I love to read people’s blogs and this week I came across http://www.runningwithspoons.com/ which is written by Amanda and has tons of health and fitness posts including Vegan recipes too 🙂 I had a go at making the Vegan Flourless Banana Muffins and they were totally awesome 🙂

Have always found Tesco to be best at stocking substitutes for Vegans and last week I found Violife, a Vegan alternative to cheese 🙂 Everyone said that when I turned Vegan I would miss cheese the most but I haven’t really missed it at all but perhaps because I never really had it much beforehand.
Taste: The taste reminded me of Babybel’s, a very mild and rubberyish taste but still really nice 🙂 There are lots of different flavours in the range such as Tomato and Basil and Pizza cheese.
Value for money: Violife retails in Tesco for £2.29 a block which I think is great because often substitutes are more expensive but this is a similar price to cheese 😀
Buy again? I’m not sure I would personally buy this again as I didn’t eat much cheese in the first place but I would totally recommend to people missing cheese or even people who are lactose intolerant. Was great to try 🙂
Where to buy: Tesco, Holland and Barrett or http://www.violife.gr/
