Cruelty Free Eggs: Is There Such A Thing?

So, it is veganuary: the month where thousands of people take on the vegan diet for a month as a challenge for themselves. Some people go back to their normal way of eating after the month has ended and others decide to continue the vegan lifestyle, whether it’s just for a couple more months or for life. So, I thought now would be a good time as any to share this post, which I wrote back in the summer, as it was something which got me thinking -is there such a thing as cruelty-free eggs?

Chocolate Crack Cashew Butter

I’ve always wanted to try and make my own nut butters.

White Chocolate Flapjacks: Using Sweet Spreads Coconutter.

I was first introduced to Sweet Spreads Coconutter a few weeks ago and I literally fell in love with it. At first I was a bit sceptical because obviously the fat count is high, but for anyone who has read this blog; you will know I love my healthy fats and this Coconutter was certainly no exception. Firstly, for those who don’t know; Coconutter is a sweet coconut butter spread that is full of healthy fats and MCT’s – Medium Chain Triglycerides. MCT’s are the best types of fats you can have as they are incredible at helping with energy levels and also aid with fat loss, as the body absorbs the MCT’s and quickly metabolises them for fuel, therefore they don’t store as fat.  The Coconutter is also an all-natural coconut spread and is free from everything you can think of; Gluten, Dairy, Soy, GMO, Preservatives – to name a few and can easily be worked into a healthy, balanced diet. As I have been doing. Other than this Coconutter being totally healthy and beneficial …
