Vegusto

One of the main things a lot of new vegans struggle with is missing cheese; as a life long vegetarian, cheese was a staple ingredient in most of my meals so cutting it out required a big adjustment in my diet, one I was more than happy to make, but a big one nonetheless. In my first few months of being vegan, I tried a couple of cheese alternatives but none came close to the real thing so I decided to give up looking. However, when I visited the USA this summer I tried Daiya cheese and have been majorly craving it ever since. In a moment of desperation I even emailed Daiya to see if they would send some to the UK; shockingly, they politely declined. I therefore decided to restart my quest for a good non-dairy cheese and stumbled upon the Vegusto website. I could not be happier about finding this little gem, as their cheese is amazing and I have now become a regular customer!

Aside from their award winning cheese, Vegusto stocks a range of vegan products that use 100% natural, sustainable and healthy ingredients. The first thing I tried from Vegusto was the No-Moo Melty cheese. I am absolutely in love with it, as not only does it make a great bagel filler, it is also the perfect pizza topping. Check out my Superfood tortilla base pizza recipe for a healthy and fun idea of how to make use of this yummy cheese ▼▽▼▽▼

After falling in love with Vegusto cheese, my boyfriend ordered me a few surprises from their website including the delicious biona organic chocolate spread and a dairy-free advent calendar. I am a huge fan of the chocolate spread as it is the perfect topper for pretty much anything: wholegrain toast, biscuits, sliced banana. You name it, I’ll smother it in chocolate spread and eat it.

As far as the vegan advent calendar goes, I am SO excited to get started on this bad boy. Bring on December ▼▽▼▽▼

If you’re looking for a cruelty-free alternative to some of your favourite meals without compromising on taste, I’d highly recommend you head on over to the Vegusto website. They have so many more foods I am looking forward to trying, so I will definitely keep you all posted. I’d love to hear if you’ve tried any of their products and if so which is your favourite?

Superfood Pizza Recipe

Last week, some of my healthy instagrammer uni friends who are trying out veganism invited me to a vegan pizza making party – sounds like my kinda thing! We had so much fun creating our own healthy pizzas and they tasted insanely good. We used wholewheat tortilla wraps as the pizza bases which is an ingenious idea as it puts such a healthy-twist on a traditionally unhealthy meal!

Since the party, I have done nothing but dream about my next tortilla base pizza. Seriously. So yesterday, I went out and bought lots of tortilla bases and played around with ingredients to create the ultimate Superfood Pizza recipe which I am so excited to be able to share with you all. Not only is this pizza incredibly yummy, it is also jam-packed with a ton of superfoods making it the perfect healthy dinner. If that’s not enough for you, it only takes 5 minutes to cook! How great is that?! I hope you all love it as much as I do; I’d love to hear from you if you made it so definitely comment on this post or drop me an email!
