Blueberry Vanilla Chia Pudding and Sevenhills International Giveaway

In today’s post, I’m sharing one of my family’s favourite puddings. Simple and quick to make, this Blueberry Vanilla Chia Pudding with Goji Nut Sprinkles makes a delicious weekday dessert, yet it’s healthy and filling enough to serve for breakfast too. What a decadent way to start the day!

Also in this post, I’m launching a fantastic international giveaway in partnership with Sevenhills Wholefoods. If you’re a regular reader of the Bit of the Good Stuff, you’ll know that I’m a big fan of Sevenhills and often feature their products in my recipes. Not only do I find them to be super high quality, but affordable too. I purchase them direct from their website as they offer free UK delivery on orders over £20, which is great value. I have practically a whole shelf in my kitchen filled with Sevenhills products and amongst my favourites are their chia seeds, cacao powder, goji berries, hemp seeds and royal quinoa.

As well as their products, I also value the Sevenhills ethics. They directly source from farmers and work closely with them, fostering long term partnerships so that the farmers are able to sustain their livelihoods between harvest cycles. Sevenhills products are also processed close to their origin, which further supports the local communities, providing them with regular income and employment.

Scroll down to the bottom of this post for a chance to win THREE of my personal favourite superfoods from the Sevenhills range as well as a signed copy of the Bit of the Good Stuff cookbook. I’m delighted to say that this giveaway is international so, providing that you’re over 18 years old, you are eligible to enter!

The Vegan Kind’s 2nd Anniversary plus a UK Giveaway!

I can’t believe it’s already been a whole year since I wrote this post celebrating TVK’s first anniversary, and two years since I received my first ever TVK box! I still get extremely excited when it’s “TVK time”, perhaps even more so than ever. Just when I think they can’t possibly get any better, the TVK team will send out a box that totally blows me away.

These past twelve months, TVK has introduced us to 58 brands and 67 vegan products, almost all of which were new to me.

I love the fact that the boxes include a mix of edible items as well as toiletries and household products. This really sets TVK apart from other vegan subscription boxes.

From what I recall, this past year, all products included in the boxes (bar one luxury moisturiser) have been full size – including the shower gels and shampoos! I hear other subscription boxes include a lot of samples, so this is a big bonus point to TVK. Continue reading

Easy Vegan Waffles & VonShef Waffle Maker UK Giveaway

I have always loved waffles. There’s something about those cute indented squares that makes them such a pleasure to eat. I especially love them this time of year, warm straight from the waffle maker or toaster. They make such a yummy breakfast or mid-afternoon snack.

Lil’ L shares my love of waffles and can easily get through a dozen a week. He says there are two Autumn/Winter foods that he’ll never get sick of and that’s apple crumble and waffles!

Easy Vegan Waffles (GF Option)

These vegan waffles are so easy to make! It’s simply a case of blending up the ingredients (I use my Froothie for this job), scooping the batter into the waffle maker and waiting 3-4 minutes. And then they’re ready to eat!

We use a slightly thicker version of our breakfast pancake batter for these waffles. To replace the egg, we use a banana or two small-medium organic apples. On balance, I prefer the texture of the waffles made with banana as it’s slightly firmer and more robust. The riper the banana, the stronger the flavour will be in the waffles. For the mildest flavour, use ripe yellow bananas rather than brown ones.

The batter also includes wholegrain flour and oats for protein and slow release energy. The waffles happen to be fat free and cane sugar free too. This means they’re scrumptious and healthy, so perfect for treating the kids (and yourself!) Lots of Lil’ L’s friends have tried these waffles and they’ve all given them a big thumbs up.

While his friends tend to prefer them with a simple drizzle of maple syrup, Lil’ L loves to fill his squares with little pieces of chopped walnuts or pecans, for some crunch…

… while I love to top mine with raspberries and chopped almonds

The waffles in the photo below were made using GF flour. I was so delighted to find that the recipe works gluten-free too as it means all our GF friends can tuck in too 😀

Vegan Waffles with Raspberries & Almonds

We make the waffles small enough so that they’re easy to pick up, fit in the toaster, and so you can scoff two or three at a time (‘cause one waffle is never enough 😉 ). We often make them as an afterschool snack, then leftovers get stored in the fridge for breakfast the next day. A quick warm through in the toaster and they’re ready to be served.

Here’s how we make our basic vegan waffle…

Forks are optional 😉

Vegan Waffles with walnuts and maple syrup

We purchased our waffle maker last October while it was on sale, and we’ve been really happy with it. It’s easy to use and, even with all our batter experimenting, we’ve yet to have a single waffle fail (which is pretty incredible!) The machine’s simple to clean too… while it’s still warm (but not scorching hot) I just wipe it over with a piece of kitchen towel.

While I’ve seen the waffle maker selling at a range of prices these past couple of months (the RRP is £64.99) you can get some amazing offers if you keep a watch out. It’s currently selling for £24.99 on Amazon and, at this price, you can’t really go wrong. We use ours 3-4 times a week and have made hundreds of waffles, so we’ve definitely had our money’s worth.
