Garden of Life

garden of life uk logoGarden of Life is a well-known brand in the USA, and I’m very excited that a UK shop has opened too! That means no more trawling Amazon for their products.

As you may know, I’m a fan of supplements when I’m busy, on the go, or feeling run-down. However, I don’t just want to buy them from anywhere! Supplements can be of varying quality, made from chemicals or synthetic creations. That’s the reason I go for Garden of Life – they have various certifications and don’t mess about with unhealthy mass production. In their own words: garden of life protein powder

“Well, while the other guys spend their time preoccupied with their efficiency, we’re uncompromising about your health. Slow it down, make it by hand, grow it in rich organic non-GMO soil with enough sun, air, water and time for it to be its best. Harvest it when ready. Treat it with care. Turn it into a power-packed nutritious food supplement. That’s what we are about. “

Some other plus points:

  • They offer free delivery.
  • You can get next day delivery if you order before midnight.
  • There’s a range of products including all-in-one shakes, and vitamin sprays.

Have you ever tried their Vanilla Protein Powder? You have to! It’s my absolute favourite. I often have a scoop in a milkshake or my morning smoothie to jazz it up a little. The powder is also non-chalky, organic and has 22g of protein in it. If you are new to smoothies, I have a really easy guide on how to find fab combinations whilst getting the nutrition in. Vanilla flavours taste particularly good with a strawberry and banana smoothie.

They have a very short term offer: 35% off Garden of Life Supplements, Vitamins and Probiotics, with code ‘HELLO35’. This expires on 8th September 2019, so be quick to catch it!

But… there’s also another promotion. Throughout September, you can get 30% off EVERYTHING plus free delivery, by using the code ‘ORGANIC’.

  • Did you know that I have coaching slots available?⁠
⁠
This is the bespoke side of Learner Vegan, for those who need a little extra help. I wish I'd had someone personally there for me when transitioning, to cut out all the google searches and going around in circles.⁠
That's why I decided to launch coaching. To provide 121 support on YOUR specific life, situations and issues.⁠
I've been through a healthy plant-based diet, eating gluten-free, vegan pregnancies, living with a meat-eater and a lot more that I can help with.⁠
Troubleshooting with someone is much more effective than spending hours on the internet, plus it's a lot of fun!⁠
⁠
One-off sessions and block booking both up for grabs.⁠
⁠
👍Get rid of those hours researching veganism.⁠
👍Receive personal and confidential guidance on YOUR issues.⁠
👍Be motivated, encouraged and supported to go and stay vegan.⁠
👍Gain confidence in your choices.⁠
⁠
Who needs this?⁠

  • Thank you for everyone that joined me LIVE!
I was answering your questions and tackling common issues from new vegans, and those doing Veganuary.
One question was around being judged - seems as though everybody has an opinion about veganism! So how do you handle being judged by friends and family?
Give this clip from the LIVE a watch to find out.
  • Before supermarket shopping...⁠
⁠
⭐️ Do A Little Light Reading! ⭐️⁠
⁠
Food shopping as a vegan can be really easy and no fuss, but to get to that happy place you need to remember something: knowledge equals power. ⁠
⁠
Being familiar with key non-vegan ingredients that pop up frequently, can speed up your shop immensely. Lactose can sneak into creamy products, egg white pops up in some Quorn foods, for example. ⁠
⁠
You also need to be familiar with what you CAN eat. Many supermarket chains have a special range of vegan food now so you can completely skip the label-checking for those – think Tesco with Wicked Kitchen. Check their websites, do some research and you’ll be ready to quickly spot that packaging in the aisles and snap up those goodies. ⁠
⁠
If there’s a certain food you can’t live without, make sure you know which aisle it’s in and what it looks like before you visit – nobody likes returning to the same aisle 3 times. I love buying tahini to make sauces, but it took me a long time to find it hidden obscurely between the pickles.⁠
⁠
Don’t expect to get everything right on your first shop either. If you go home with something you later realise isn’t vegan, don’t beat yourself up about it. Take it back, give it to a friend or donate it to a food bank. You’ll remember for next time!⁠

  • I have to admit, I'm not much of a baker. I'd much rather make savoury meals.⁠
Luckily, I have an amazing mum who is! She makes and sends me recipes for cakes and bakes, that are easy enough even for me to have a go at.⁠
⁠
A basic vanilla sponge cake pleases everyone. It's the perfect starting point for a birthday cake, or with added icing, whipped cream or sprinkles.⁠
⁠
Ingredients:⁠
210 g plain flour⁠
250 ml soy milk⁠
200 g sugar (white or coconut)⁠
80 ml oil (olive or vegetable)⁠
0.5 tsp bicarbonate of soda⁠
0.5 tsp table salt⁠
1 tbsp apple cider vinegar⁠
3 tsp vanilla extract⁠
⁠
Instructions:⁠
⭐️Warm the oven to 180oC.⁠
⭐️Add the flour, sugar, salt and bicarbonate of soda to a bowl (don't forget to sift your flour!) and mix.⁠
⭐️Add the remaining ingredients, and whisk thoroughly.⁠
⭐️Add the mixture to a greased cake tin (7in diameter works well).⁠
⭐️Bake for 25-30 mins.⁠
⭐️Eat alone or add vegan single cream, vanilla frosting or buttercream if preferred.⁠

Answering your questions and tackling common issues from people doing Veganuary.⁠

  • This week I’ve been taking part in a #whatieatinadayvegan Veganuary special. Today is my day to share my meals! 
I always start the day with warm lemon water. It’s refreshing and gets the digestion going!
Next is a green juice. My go-to for this is cucumber, celery, apple, orange, ginger and spinach/kale. A hit of nutrients!
Mid morning is smoothie time, and today was mango banana. I always add flax or hemp seeds for omega 3. 
For lunch I usually have a loaded salad. But today was Saturday and Ben was hungry! So we had a lovely brunch 😍
Off to my mum’s for dinner. She’s not vegan but always makes great vegan food! We had spaghetti bolognese, garlic bread and apple cake for pudding. My mum actually prefers making vegan cakes as she thinks they taste better 👍
Eating vegan is so easy! If you have any questions or need meal ideas just hit me up anytime. 
And do go ahead and check out the other lovelies taking part in this week’s posts - @rs_recipes @thecookandhim @veginspired @veganbabelife @eatswithel_ @viva.vegana
