The Vegan Kind

the vegan kind lifestyle box logo

We just had to give Feature of the Month to the lovely Vegan Kind, the UK’s most popular subscription box for vegans. Their aim is to make a vegan lifestyle as accessible to as many people as possible. And what’s easier than having goodies sent straight to your door?

The concept is simple. You simply choose what kind of box you want to receive, decide how often you want it (or as a one-time purchase), and purchase! The postman will deliver it straight to your door.

There’s a reason why so many of their boxes sell! They’re fantastic value, there’s no monthly contract, and you can order them as a one-off or periodical basis. I particularly wanted to give them a mention on Learner Vegan, as they are a great way for new vegans to discover brands and products on a trial basis.

Let’s have a look at their products in more depth.

The Vegan Kind Lifestyle Boxthe vegan kind veganuary lifestyle box

I’ve been fortunate enough to have their lifestyle box a few times now, and have never been disappointed. As a long-time vegan, there have been brands and products included that even I’ve never bought before! Always included in the box are: treats such as chocolate, healthy snacks such as flavoured nuts or protein bars, and an inedible lifestyle product such as toothbrushes, shampoo or cookbooks. They also include a recipe card every time to get your creative chef juices flowing!

Take a look at January’s box in collaboration with Veganuary (right). It cost £10 and included 8 items, including a shampoo! What a bargain. They also guarantee that the products in the box are sold to you at below RRP. As a first-time buyer, you can also get £5 off your first box – just click our link and enter the code VEGAN. A little bird told me that they also reward long-term subscribers (especially on month 6 of buying!) so it pays to stay loyal.

10p from each box is designated to a chosen charity every month – so no excuse not to buy one!

The Vegan Kind Beauty Box

If you’re into ethical, cruelty-free beauty, this one is for you. For £15

per box (they generally provide one every 2 months, rather than monthly, so you have a chance to test every product), you get around 6 beauty products that are 100% vegan. This can include products such as perfume, moisturiser, lip balm, oils and makeup, plus they guarantee you won’t receive the same product twice too.

As with the lifestyle box, you can also get £5 off your first order, making that initial purchase an absolute steal. Again, just click our link and enter the code VEGAN. I’ve seen high-quality brands such as Natura and Memi in previous boxes, so you can be sure it’s worth the investment.

I love the fact that 20p from every beauty box sold goes to the charity Animal Free Research UK.

The Vegan Kind Supermarket

If surprise subscription boxes are not your thing, they also have a supermarket online. This can be used for ordering standard food and drink such as bread, chocolate, meat substitutes and alcohol. However, they also have health and beauty products, clothing, bags, gifts, cards, pet food, and books.

Unlike many online vegan stores, The Vegan Kind also provide chilled foods such as burgers and tofu. There’s even a discount section for you frugal folks. For example, they currently have seitan pieces for £2.29, ham-style slices for £1.35 and organic superbars for 49p.

Nice little touches are a 1-hour delivery slot given to you on the day it’s due, next day delivery, and FREE shipping plus an extra product for orders over £60. Reward points for repeat customers are also available.

I hope you enjoyed your introduction to The Vegan Kind!

At Learner Vegan, we’ll be reviewing one of their boxes this month too, so watch out for that post! If you try any Vegan Kind products, do let us know!

  • 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.⁠

  • 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
  • Are your children going vegan with you?⁠
⁠
Last year, I was so excited to publish this guest post from fellow vegan and businesswoman, Naomi Sheridan! Naomi is the mother of two beautiful and healthy vegan children, so I was really interested to hear her advice on raising vegan children.⁠
⁠
Whether your children are fully vegan, or just incorporating healthier foods into their diet, I hope you find it useful.⁠

  • This is important for me.⁠
⁠
When I was vegetarian, I saw no issue at all with eating dairy and eggs. In my mind, it wasn't meat, and animals produced them anyway. It was that simple for me. ⁠
⁠
Of course, with the rise of social media I was exposed to more animal rights petitions, and undercover footage of factory farms. But STILL, I thought they were isolated incidents, unrelated to the food I was personally eating.⁠
⁠
It wasn't until I finally did my own research (the objective scientist in me wanted to find the evidence and arguments for and against veganism) that it all finally clicked for me. I knew that as an animal lover, I would feel like a hypocrite cuddling my cats and condoning meat, while sitting down to cheese and omelettes.⁠
⁠
I phased out dairy and eggs. I looked into the processes behind leather and wool. It wasn't an overnight transition yet before I knew it, I was a fully-fledged vegan.⁠
⁠
This quote means a lot to me. Animals are here with us, not for us. Their bodies and 'products' are their own. ⁠
⁠
How about you? What's your story?⁠

  • The BOSH book is on sale!⁠
🥳🥳⁠
Ben bought me 'BOSH! How to Live Vegan' after I had Ava, to read while feeding. I'm really enjoying it!⁠
⁠
It's a great read for new or existing vegans, with life hacks, advice and difficult questions answered. Things like dealing with friends and family, wearing old leather clothes, are all discussed.⁠
⁠
It's on sale for £7 right now ⁠
(I'll pop the link in my bio).⁠
⁠
PS. Have you seen the new cooking show from the BOSH boys? It's on ITV, called Living On The Veg. Go get it on catch-up. ⁠
