Looking for a natural energy drink? Ever considered tea?! Our March Vegan Tuck Box included a free sample of Ecuatea’s new Guayusa tea. Guayusa (pronounced why-you-sa) grows naturally in the rainforests of Ecuador and is said to be pure Amazonian energy. Drinkers treasure it for its myriad health benefits and long lasting, stable energy. It’s said to have the kick of coffee, the relaxation of tea and the bliss of dark chocolate.
Vegan Tuck Box Blog - Discover New Vegan Products
Each month we’ll be publishing a recipe on our blog that either uses an ingredient from that month’s Vegan Tuck Box or would complement one of the products. Our first recipe is a red pepper and courgette mini quiche, which we thought would be great served with the tabouleh pot from March’s box. This recipe is from Fairfoods Vegan Catering and originally comes from Pogo Café which the owner of Fairfoods and our very own Chrissy helped to set up and run.
One of this month’s brand partners is a new product called Fit Fit. Fit Fits are small discs of fruit and nuts that come in a range of flavours that include: Apricot, Maya Date and Cacao, Sunny Apricot and Almond, Rainbow Fig and Walnut and Reddy Fig. As an added bonus they bear the Vegan Society trademark.
At only 60 calories this new product is the perfect healthy snack to give you that little extra boost during the day. Their small size makes them ideal for on-the-go snacking, as they fit perfectly in any handbag, gym bag or school lunch box. They’re definitely a cute, fun way to get your kids eating fruit and nuts.
Vegan Tuck Box was born from our passion for making veganism accessible for all. Our mission is to make vegan food more widely available and easier to obtain.
Meeting lots of wannabe vegans at events we organise has given us useful insights into the challenges people face when transitioning to a vegan diet. We discovered that finding quality vegan snacks and treats can be a stumbling block to achieving a more compassionate lifestyle.
