Beyond Meat Burger Review

Image
The beyond meat burger Green common Beyond meat truffel burger:  If you don’t know the hype around the beyond meat burger you are kinda late to the game but let me explain. It's a vegan burger designed to look and taste exactly like the real deal. Even though I was  hastened  to try it because the taste of meat doesn’t sound very appetizing to me I just had to know. I ordered it with a side salad since I saw it was on the menu just to get some greens in. If i had known it would’ve been just a bunch of leaves id definitely gone for the sweet potato fries that go with it. My burger verdict; yes it does in my opinion look and tastes exactly like it. However I do not enjoy the taste of meat that much anymore so it was just alright for me. Now if you are a meat eater or enjoy the taste of it I couldn’t recommend you more to just give it a shot. You’re not missing out on anything, on the contrary, you’re saving a life and helping out the environment. No excuses left. Recently  

What I ate in Hong Kong N0.2

Hiiii! Well the only thing I seem to post these days our food blogs. But let's be honest, what's better than food, not a lot. So let's get into it. Pop vegan  After doing a long and pretty intense hike me and a friend found ourselves craving some Italian food or just in general carbs. We found this place which serves both. We got the vegan cheese four seasons pizza which was light but very tasty and a really good choice if you can't decide on toppings ever. I mean, that's me. With this pizza you basically get all of them. It was delicious. We also shared some artichoke and cheese enchilada's which were surprisingly good. I went in a bit confused by the combo of flavors but was definitely not  disappointed. As a dessert we got the raw cheesecake but it was gone before I could take the pic. That says enough I guess.     Loving Hut  After an other hike, yes I did derserve all those calories. I went to a vegan chain restaurant that's to be

What I ate in London

Hey hey, me again. I went to London for a long weekend to visit a friend of mine who is doing an internship there. We had an amazing time and consumed a lot of food. Check it out!                    Unity Diner I really wanted to eat here because maybe you know him, maybe you don't, earthling Ed opened this vegan restaurant in Shoreditch. He is an animal rights activist who I follow on insta. I find him ver inspiring and he has a great way of spreading the vegan movement. So me and my friend whom I was visiting went to check it out. We had the raw taco's as a starter which were okay, my friend loved them but I found the chocolate sauce just a bit of an odd combinations. Not really my thing. As mains we shared the fruity  pancakes and the surge burger with added cheese and bacon. The pancakes were exactly the right amount of sweet and I loved all the ripe fruit that came with it. However the burger blew us away, it was so good! The bacon didn't do much for me but th

Why I went Vegan

  Why I went vegan. Easily the best division I’ve ever made, don’t get me wrong it wasn’t always easy but in the end it is always rewarding.  I went vegan on the 5th of june 2017. I could remember the specific date because I was living up to that moment and overjoyed that I was doing something that I myself could totally stand for. I even got a tattoo to symbolize it. It's ahimsa written in  Devanagar i , meaning non-violence; consciousness for all that lives. This might seem like a rushed decision and quite radicle but bare in mind that I had been vegetarian for 2,5 years at this point and tried a plan based diet for 3 months before going on my gap year. I had to put a stop to this since I was going to live on campus in New York and even the term vegetarian was somewhat difficult for them to comprehend. I had to live off of dry bagels, over or under ripe fruit, plain white rice with little veg and sometimes some plain tofu. It wasn't glamorous or very healthy f

Hi vegans or other earthlings that might want to cut on there meat intake or just general CO2 footprint. You're at the post. Now let me tell you all about the delicious food I consumed during my stay in Hong Kong! Veggie SF  Veggie SF might not be the most tasty food I consumed but the place itself made it worthy to mention. I had the vietnamese noodles, it was lovely fresh and light on the stomach. The fried tofu gave it the fish feel but not in a gross way. As a dessert a had the banana bread which was delish, especially with the coconut whipped cream. But what really made the restaurant great was the service, we where helped by this lovely girl who could tell us a lot. Before leaving I asked if she had any recommendations for restaurants what followed into a thirty minute long convo about veganism. Loved it! Supabowl & Fresca                      If you know me even a little you know that I love me a Acai bowl. So even in a city like HK where you don't

What to do in Bali

Hi globetrotters, here I am with a post about my Bali adventures. Giving you a quick insight on what to do in Bali! First of all I would recommend renting a scooter, it's a convenient and vast way to travel. But be aware the traffic in Indonesia is crazy, so if you're a bit hesitant download the app Go-Jek. It is basically the same as Uber but you can also travel by scooter. Rice fields & Swing    There are rice fields everywhere on Bali, the Tegallalang being one of the most famous one. We visited them in a time that the rice was just harvested so it was a bit less green. However it is definitely worth the visit because you can swing above the fields. There is this tourist attraction called the Bali swing were you have a lot of swings, duhh, and some cocoons. People useably just go there for the pictures but the line's are long and it is a bit expensive. So this option we did is way better in my experience. Temple                      A must do i

Sourced box review

Hi there! Are you interested in a subscription box and looking for a review than you are in the right place. Let me tell you my opinion and afterward you can make up your own. You know is it your thing or is it even worth it. Sourced box is a healthy snack delivery service that's delivered once a month. The goodies are natural, mostly organic and totally vegan. I had a year long subscription, 12 boxes, so I can give you a over all review of what the boxes mostly consist of, the quality and if it's worth the price. A annual subscription is 216 euro's (189,95 pounds) and monthly 21,6 euro's (18,95 pounds). Not very cheap I know. Let me start by saying that I was never disappointed with the taste, overall they were all enjoyable and every box consisted of a variety of different sweet/savory snacks. Most packages included one drink, at least one protein/nut/fruit bar and chocolate. Then some included chips/some other crunchy/puffed item or a more dessert style treat

Hai  orang tersayang, meaning hallo loves in indonesian. I thought let's try something new with this final bali blogpost were unfortunately discus the last vegan restaurants..  Cafe organic Cafe organic is popular spot in the center of changgu's city life. We went here a couple a times just to take away dessert, we really got addicted to there chocolate caramel biscuit (or whatever the name was). However we did also stop by to have breakfast before going to yoga. We shared the lovers pancakes and the pesto & pumpkin toast. The pancakes were excellent, it had been some time since I last had pancakes so these strawberry pancakes really hit the spot. If you're not to big on sweet pancakes maybe get the toast because they really were quite sweet. The toast was great and not overly complicated. The crunchy nuts with vegan cheese on top make it different from the normal toast. They didn't over do it which was nice, especially as a breakfast.  As our last prope

We did a tour to see all te amazing spots like; waterfalls, rice fields, monkey forrest and temples. As well as a little food tour to see what all the vegan cafe's in Ubud had to offer. The once we went to worth mentioning were Alchemy (top pics) and seeds of life (bottom pic).  Alchemy:  Alchemy was a raw food cafe/shop/yoga studio, they had a wide a sortiment of foods. Including a salad bar, smoothie bowl bar (which I had, you got to chose your smoothie and fruit/toppings of choice) and a menu cart from which we shared te raw pizza and cauliflower sushi. Wow that was pizza was just amazing and very filling. The sushi was okay, I just prefer real rice sushi. The smoothie bowl was also delicious and fun because I got to chose every element I wanted in there.  Seeds of li
