World Vegan Month runs over the course of November every year. This means right now people all over the world are pledging to go vegan for a week or the entire month.
Whether you’re a vegan or not, there are several positives to the movement having grown so fast in the past few years. From adapting their diets, to supporting the reduction in “food miles” and emissions, vegans are “giving food the focus it deserves”, and are calling on governments and big corporations for more and more ethical products.
Studies by Oxford University found that on average, a meat-based diet produced more than double the amount of emissions than a plant-based diet. Here at BoroughBox, we’re all for reducing food miles and encouraging people to #eatlocal and support independent producers. So here are a couple of vegan-friendly products, handpicked by us and all available on www.boroughbox.com, so you can join in with Vegan Month too…
Bali Nutra Coconut SyrupMade from 100% Coconut Sap, Bali Nutra Coconut Syrup is Vegan Society Approved, Gluten Free and has contains no preservatives, colourings, flavourings or added sugar. A delicious alternative sweetener to add to tea and coffee, home baking or as a marinade or topping on pancakes or waffles. Instagrammer @menapie says “I’m a huge Bali Nutra fan and cannot eat porridge without it!” We’re sold then.
Wholesome handmade energy bars combining gluten free oats, nuts and chia seeds, all bound together with fruit. A super food snack bursting with flavour and they’re 100% vegan too. Give us the lot.
A vegan take on the ‘Bruffle’ (a vegan brownie rolled up into a ball and coated in chocolate like a truffle), packed with goodness without compromising on any of the flavour. Ingredients include dried apricots, raisins, organic hemp seends, cacao and hemp oil, all coated in 74% dark chocolate. Tasty.
Happy World Vegan Month!
