Here is a list of some vegan must haves we have fallen in love with this month…. to make life a little better… healthier or a bit tastier!

Nush Spreadable Cheese

Delicious with salad and crackers…..  love the taste!

The UK’s first dairy-free cheese made from almond m*lk, Nush Spreadable Cheese is available in two flavours, Natural and Chive.

Each tub is all-natural, packed with whole ingredients and is protein-rich, containing 60 almonds; the tubs are also free from gluten, soya, preservatives and additives. Produced using artisan methods in Nush’s South East London HQ, the cheese is made by blending the best quality European almonds with filtered water and is fortified with gut-friendly live, vegan probiotic cultures; left to mature overnight, it is then seasoned with a sprinkle of British sea salt.

Nush Spreadable Cheese offers a direct replacement for dairy and can be slathered on a jacket potato, spread on a bagel and topped with fresh fruit for breakfast, the basis of a nourishing packed lunch, added to a cheeseboard or picnic, spread on crackers.

Bright Barley

A handy drink to take out with you…. I particularly liked the coffee flavour.

Meet the freshest new drink in the fridge. Bright Barley is a dairy free drink made from one of the world’s most ancient grains.

Full of fibre and nutrients and packed with sustainability credentials, barley is the original supergrain. It has sustained ancient civilisations since the Iron Age, including the Greeks, Egyptians and Romans, even giving gladiators the name hordearii, or ‘eaters of barley’. A locally sourced superfood hiding right under our noses! Who knew?

You’ve tried soya, almond, oat and even cashew. Now meet the freshest new milk in the fridge, Bright Barley.

Our range of delicious, dairy-free shakes – the first barley ‘mylk’ drinks in the UK – are launching in three crowd-pleaser flavours, Salted Caramel, Chocolate and Coffee, delivering indulgent refreshment, a Health & Wellness go-to, innovative vegan treat or foodie adventure, in a convenient, on-the-go, ready-to-drink format.


Pimp My Salad

We have been eating a lot of salads and these handy packs keep them tasting too “samey” as well as adding a healthy boost.

These yummy toppers use only the best ingredients, sourced from ethical suppliers, and are vegan, gluten free and keto/paleo friendly. Each is made using slowly dried cooking techniques, to ensure the nutrients in their ingredients stay intact, and each sprinkle of topper adds extra goodness to breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Coconut Bacon combines coconut flakes with herbs, spices and a natural wood smoke to create a scrumptious crunchy bacon alternative that will satisfy any craving.

Cashew Parmesan Cheez uses raw cashews, sunflower seeds, nutritional yeast, organic kale and lemon peel to produce a vibrant and punchy topping.

Activated Super Seeds mixes six seeds, including chia and poppy, with lively spices and tamari to ensure your taste buds won’t be disappointed.

Whilst they bring a pop of crunch and bold flavours to salads, they also add an extra boost to pizzas and pasta and a tasty burst of excitement to bowls of grains, veggies and soups.

You can find Pimp My Salad toppers in Ocado, Planet Organic, Holland & Barrett, Selfridges and your local health store.

Better Bites

Loved popping these on our salad, adding to stir fry’s as well as snacking! Something different and another great vegan protein boost.

Better Nature, an innovative tempeh brand known for its nutritious, high protein “Mince” and “Rashers,” is expanding its product range with the Better Bites. Boasting indulgent flavours inspired by China, Mexico and India, Better Bites aims to make tempeh an even more accessible source of plant-based protein. 

Available in Saucy Stir Fry, Tantalising Taco and Moreish Masala, the new line fulfils the tempeh category’s need for more convenient and flavoursome options, without compromising on nutritional value.

Made from fermented lupin beans, each 175g pack contains 33g Protein and 21g Fibre. The fermentation process breaks down the protein and increases the amount that can be absorbed by the body anywhere from 17% to 87%, depending on the bean used.

“In the UK, there is very little awareness about tempeh, not just in terms of what it is and its range of health benefits, but also how to cook with it” says Elin Roberts, co-founder and Head of Marketing at Better Nature.

“It’s actually incredibly easy to cook with as it takes on flavour so quickly and easily, and because it’s all natural, there’s no danger of under or over cooking it.”

Better Bites can be purchased individually from the Better Nature website for £3.79 or as part of a bundle from £28.99.

Le Stagioni d’Italia Pasta

This pasta tasted amazing. I just love it. Boiled with salt water and a little amount of a healthy salt, as well as mixed with dairy free cheese and my home made roast tomato and garlic sauce. 

A native Italian variety of durum wheat, called Senatore Cappelli, is used to produce this type of pasta. It is taller than common wheat and throughout its long history has never undergone any modification, so it is easy to digest.

100% Italian wheat grown in our fields and watched over by our expert agronomists. The transformation processes, from the traditional “bronze drawing” to the longer drying time procedure, preserve it and ensure top quality and an amazing taste. That’s why Le Stagioni d’Italia pasta is the result of a short supply chain: straight from the field to your table.
