Heinz Beans

Beans are an essential part of any vegan diet, they are filled with loads of good stuff like fibre, half a can is one of your five a day, and the are virtually fat free so they are perfect to have on your plate or in your bowl! They are filling, healthy, and super cheap, what more can you want out of something?

The beans are of a high quality and taste delicious when paired with the sweet tomato sauce that has a distinctly Heinz taste to it if you get me? Some people may find them a bit sweet but personally I love them, they are currently my go to lunch. 

I would recommend them on crumpets instead of toast because that is a combination which cannot be beaten, and if you want to go wild add a bit of grated cheese on top to let it melt (you can use vegan cheese aswell so you can make this into a whole vegan meal!) I have a friend who does this an I can't help but be a little envious despite having a deep hatred of cheese.

Nestle Coco Shreddies (Vegan)

I am a massive fan of cereal, I have it basically every day with my vegan yogurt and bagel (I'm a greedy girl, what can I say?). But I was recently shocked to discover that many cereals which I had simply assumed were vegan are in fact not because they have the addition of lanolin in order to fortify them with vitamin d. 
So I did start scouring the Internet in search of easy to get hold of vegan friendly cereal and shockingly Cocoa Shreddies popped up on the list and were actually verified by Nestle as being vegan so who am I to argue?

I like to convince myself that I am being healthy when I eat Shreddies because of their whole grain goodness etc but in reality they are deliciously sweet with a good crunch and a nice hit of cocoa. I really do find these filling aswell, especially with only a 40g serving (normally I find cereal suggested serving sizes to be absolutely dire because surely not even a child would be suitably sustained on what is often no more than a handful of cereal?) anyway, I would probably say that that Cocoa Shreddies are probably my favourite thing to have with breakfast at the moment!

Warburtons Crumpets

Crumpets are one of my favourite breakfast to have of a morning, and it has to be Warburtons. I've tried other brands but it is never quite as good, no others can compare to the delicious fluffy yumminess that is found in a fresh, hot, Warburtons crumpet.

The flavour is lovely and reminds me of being younger when I would have these for my breakfast slathered in peanut butter so much that the bottom would fall through! Unfortunately I don't think that was quite the healthiest breakfast I've ever had but it was by far the nicest! 
Anyway, now a days I tend to have them with a bit of Marmite or Vegemite or I may be a bit of a boring thing and just have them plain (I like things like that). Apparently the best way to have them though is slathered in butter -or a vegan friendly alternative. 

Basically I love to have crumpets in the morning and they are a staple breakfast item in my household!
