Review: Vegavero

It’s almost been two years since I transitioned from meat-eater to vegan, and the reason that I made this change was exclusively down to ethical and environmental reasons – health was not a factor whatsoever at the time.

However, when you go vegan it’s more than likely that you will quickly realise all the benefits of the lifestyle, just like I did. I lost weight once I ditched the animal products, and generally feel much lighter and more energetic; this initial change in health gave me the motivation to try and become even healthier.

I’m not a perfectly healthy person, I still eat a lot of junk food, I sometimes don’t eat at regular times, I don’t exercise as much as I should etc. I find it difficult to stay super healthy 24/7, especially when you haven’t got the time, and that’s why I love having extra boosts from products like herbal teas, and powder mixes. They’re obviously not a replacement for eating a balanced, diet but I really do believe that they boost my energy, digestion, and keep me healthy.

I absolutely swear by the power of my vegan diet, and herbal teas; I have only been ill twice in the whole two years of being vegan, but before that, I would get a cold or the flu at least once every 2 months.

My love for all things vegan, organic, and eco-friendly is one of the reasons that I appreciate Vegavero so much; their products are completely free of animal products, they’re ethical, organic, and even their offices and production facilities are as green as you can get.

I was sent 3 products from Vegavero to try out and have been so pleased with them so far. I received “Organic Japanese Matcha”, “all-in-one Organic Superfood Mix” and an “Energy Mix”.

 

Matcha

Just as I suspected, the ‘Matcha Powder‘ has been my favourite. It tastes the best, is the most versatile, and most of all; I love it because it tastes amazing as a Matcha latte! The first time I tried the powder I just had it as a tea, which was still nice; the flavour was subtle and not too strong and bitter like I expected it to be. The trick to getting a perfect Matcha drink is to whisk until frothy, and I definitely didn’t achieve that the first time (making it perfectly does take some practice). I’d strongly recommend making a Matcha latte; I followed this recipe and used my coffee machine to froth some almond milk up, and this was definitely key to making it taste so delicious and comforting.

Superfood Mix

The first time I tried the ‘Superfood Mix’ I added it to some water and found that it had a very earthy (obviously) taste; it wasn’t unbearably strong, but definitely tasted better in a banana and soy milk smoothie! Once I have tried a few more things with the ‘Superfood Mix’ I will update this blog post.

Energy Mix

I think this has a stronger taste than the ‘Superfood Mix’, and I can definitely taste the wheatgrass in it. It contains Wheatgrass, Matcha, Lucuma, and Cacao, which makes it a great antioxidant drink to perk you up, and has a high nutritional content. I decided to try this mix on a couple of days that I didn’t drink coffee, and I found that I was still refreshed and energetic until the evenings (this is not usually the case when I go without my daily coffee). Once I have tried a few more things with the ‘Energy Mix‘ I will update this blog post.

The people at Vegavero are so friendly over social media and are happy to answer any questions that you may have about their products. It’s so easy to order their items as they have an Amazon account here.

I’m going to start my best to start drinking the Matcha and the Energy Mix on a regular basis and report back to this blog post on whether it’s made any changes to my health or not.

    I love your photos! They’re gorgeous. I’m not vegan but this year in particular I have been actively cutting out meat more often and I can quite easily have a few meat free days during the week. I really love the sound of the matcha one! And I think regardless of whether you’re a meat eater or vegan, we all have to allow ourselves to enjoy food and we won’t be healthy 24/7 but that’s fine! xxx

      Thanks so much! That’s so great, I love hearing that people have been cutting down on meat more often – every little change really helps 🙂 Yeah I would totally recommend matcha, it’s gradually replacing the peppermint tea that I have every day lol. Definitely agree with you! xx

    ive really really really been thinking about going vegan for a while now…mainly for ethical reasons but the thing that holds me back is the ease with which i can eat dinner with my family and i just worry that switching up my diet will mean im constantly cooking on my own for myself! did you find this at all when you made the switch?

      I totally get what you mean, and I think this is the reason that a lot of people don’t make the switch. Some people see it as you being ‘difficult’ or purposely excluding yourself, but it’s sooo not the case.
      If you’re not vegetarian already I think it could be a good idea to slowly transition to that first. It’ll be easier for you, and easier for your family to get used to.
      I really enjoy cooking my own meals and my family tend to all eat at different times anyway, so it was fortunately quite simple for me. You have got to think about your personal situation first, you can only do your best 🙂 Cutting down on animal products is incredibly helpful to the animals.
      Vegan options are popping up absolutely everywhere now, especially in restaurants, so I see eating out as quite a simple way of eating vegan/vegetarian as your family doesn’t have to cook it!
      For me, buying vegan meat and dairy alternatives, and letting my family try them was a really good way of getting them to warm to the idea of veganism lol!
      Hope this helped! I’m always happy to answer any questions about veganism 🙂
