13 Nov 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.
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.
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.
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.
