Hello! Tesco have put some very handy vegetables on a pretty great offer! I believe it's called the 'festive five' and if it isn't it should be! It includes bags of potatoes, carrots, parsnips, sprouts and a cauliflower, all for just 29p each!

All of these feature in my Christmas Dinner for under £10 post (here) making this even cheaper!

To confirm, it's a 1kg bag of carrots, a 2.5kg bag of potatoes, 500g bag of parsnips and a 500g bag of sprouts (plus the single cauliflower). This saves an extra £2.96!

Hope this helps!

Chestnuts offer (and the many uses for them!)

Hello! Merchant Gourmet whole chestnuts are on offer in Tesco for just £1 (usually £2.25)! They're labelled vegan too, which is what I'd expect from a chestnut, but these days it's always nice to have it confirmed (I'm looking at you milky pickled onions!) These are on offer until 26th December.




















This is great for Christmas, however I love these chestnuts and have many uses for them, which may give you ideas too! These include:

  • With sprouts, cooked in buttery spread
  • In a mushroom pate (using mushrooms, chestnuts, onions, garlic and herb cream sheese, a little plant milk to make it pate-like
  • In a stroganoff
  • In a nut roast style main
  • As a puree
Hope this helps!

Ideas for a Vegan Christmas Dinner for under £10

Hello! Christmas is an expensive time, but equally we want to enjoy the time we have with our loved ones! I'm seeing lots of people posting about Christmas dinner at the moment, so I thought I'd share my little tips and finds which may help make a delicious meal on a budget (whilst hopefully being easy too! Who wants to cook all day?! Well, me sometimes, but only to then partake in the eating!) I'm trying to stick to one shop for ease, I dislike it when things like this make you go to 1000 shops for one meal! I haven't factored in staples of salt, pepper or oil.

The Veg!

Thought I'd start with the basics. Veg! The simplest advice I have is to only buy what you need. By this, I mean don't be lured in by the big bags of veg, like carrots, unless you actually use them all the time. The bags can occasionally seem cheaper, for example whenever I buy a single courgette, it ends up cheaper to buy a pack of three. However more often than not just buying the individual (or wonky) veg is cheaper. You can buy lots of veg loose such as carrots, parsnips, onions, sprouts and potatoes. For example, Tesco online suggest carrots are 6p each (so a family of 4 it'd be 24p), Parsnips are 20p each (say 60p for a family of 4) brown onions are 16p each (64p for a baked onion each), sprouts are alarmingly priced per sprout at 4p...(so let's say 6 sprouts on a plate each, 96p), potatoes are 33p each (say a potato each for roasties, so £1.32. In this instance it may be worth getting a £1.35 2.5kg bag). You could always just roast the onions, carrots and parsnips together, they just need a drizzle of oil.

So for veg I've estimated £3.79. If you add a cauliflower for £1 it's £4.60. If you like peas, add 80p for value frozen peas. If you don't want so much onion, you could fry the peas with one onion to make them tasty!

Sauces!

Sauces are always nice for a roast and the following are vegan: Tesco free from cheese sauce packet mix at 59p (salt and pepper makes this pretty good I think!), Colman's bread sauce mix for 80p, Tesco own brand gravy granules for 70p (the vegetable and onion flavours are on their vegan list). You'll need plant milk for the cheese and bread sauce, value soya works fine at 59p.

Extras!

Stuffing mixes are often vegan, including Tesco own brand sage and onion stuffing mix 170g for 40p. This is a nice little side to add a different flavour to your meal.

Pudding!

Annoyingly, Tesco don't have mince pies this year, but Asda have even marked theirs vegan! Plus they're only 89p.


So I've got: Carrots, parsnips, onions, sprouts, potatoes, cauliflower, peas, stuffing, cheese sauce, bread sauce, gravy and mince pies for £9.56 for 4 people.

There are a lot of roasts available this year, such as nut roasts and Linda McCartney roasts at £3.50, as well as currently an offer on a bag of cooked chestnuts for £1 to make your sprouts a bit more fancy, depending on what your budget will allow!

I'm not really writing this to follow step by step, however it's to just gives little ideas to either add something that's not too pricey (like a little cheese sauce!) or ways to cut costs (like using a stuffing mix for a nice flavoursome extra).

Little tip!

Holland and Barrett have lots of vegan roast items, such as VBites 'gammon style', Frys celebration roasts and Tofurky roasts! These are usually quite expensive, but I have seen a fair few reduced due to a short shelf life (literally selling for pence). These can be frozen ready for Christmas day, so I recommend popping into your local H&B whenever you walk past just to see what may be available at a large reduction.

Other ideas for future Christmas

Usually Christmas bits such as napkins and crackers are heavily reduced in January, so it may be worth buying some this January ready for next year. This should save you a good few pounds and you'll still get the alarmingly small photo frame and playing cards next year!

M and S Alcoholic Drinks offer!

Hello! Earlier in the week I said I was planning a post about M and S Alcoholic drinks, here it is! Whilst M and S are perhaps not the best shop for vegan food...they are really awesome at marking their alcoholic drinks! They mark it either by the purple v on the front, or by writing 'suitable for vegetarians and vegans' on the back. These labels seems to be mainly on new drinks, so there may be older bottles that are still worth checking to see if they're vegan (like the fizzes etc).

These are to show the logos and labels to look out for!












Now for the exciting part. They have recently released a creme brulee liqueur and even more recently a chocolate coconut drink! I am drinking the coconut one as I type this *hic* and IT'S JUST HOW I REMEMBER BAILEYS!! Both of these drinks are on an offer too! They are £12 each, or 2 for £16!!


































I couldn't see a date for when this offer ends, so I suggest getting some sooner rather than later if you want them! It possibly says 1st January, but I can't confirm it yet. I'll edit this when I can.

Also (not on offer) was a whole range of delicious sounding drinks, including 'melt in the mouth' chocolate liqueur, clementine and ginger liqueur, pineapple and lime daiquiri, blood orange negroni and a Christmas cobbler cocktail to name just a few. All labelled!

What a time to be alive!
Hope this helps!

Advent offers and competitions!

Hello! Now that we've had the first day of December, I have seen that a fair few vegan brands appear to be offering either a competition a day or an offer a day for advent (24 days) or for 12 days of Christmas. I won't be able to find them all, but I recommend if you have preferred brands, check out their social media to see if they're promoting anything. As an example I've found the following:


  • Vegan tuck box on instagram have an offer a a day
  • White rabbit skincare also have an offer a day on social media
  • Vegan life magazine have a competition a day which they advertise on social media (here is the link for today, 2nd December https://www.veganlifemag.com/advent-day-2-blackberry-cottage/)
This is just three as an example, but this could be a good way to save on a purchase you already want, or have a little fun and win something lovely! It's not just for vegan items either, this is common for many companies to do at this time of year! 

Hope this helps!

Tyne Chease offer!

Hello! Luxury nut cheese makers Tyne Chease have an offer running at the moment which may be good for certain festivities coming up which I won't mention again yet...

Tyne Chease are definitely premium chease makers and as such, this may not be the cheapest offer I've ever shared with you. But they are also lovely and popular, so I feel many of you would want to know about this!

For a Limited time, you can buy a trio giftset for £20.00 instead of £24.85! This features their smoked, cashew truffle and Ethiopian spice varieties. They can be frozen where they last for 3 months, otherwise they will last 1 month when refrigerated. There is postage to consider, for me in England, with just the trio giftset, it was estimated at £3.40. So I guess in a way you can consider this offer free postage plus a little off which is nice!

Just head here for this set: https://www.tynechease.com/product-page/trio-of-chease-giftset




















As another little note, they also have a lovely selection box for £18.95 which has mini 20g portions of 10 types of chease. Depending on why you would like some, this may be a more suitable option for you!

Boots meal deal

Hello! This post is about Boot's meal deal, where you get a sandwich, a snack and a drink for £3.39. There are two vegan sandwiches in this meal deal, including the new festive parsnip fritter one, as well as the Louisiana cajun fritter! Obviously, it is cheaper to just make a sandwich at home, but the sometimes you can't or you just don't want to.

Today I got the new sandwich, plus a quite expensive graze snack box and a drink, meaning I saved £2.05 compared to buying each item separately. There is quite a lot of choice in terms of drinks and snacks as it includes everything from flavoured water to full bottles of brands such as coca-cola or fanta (I know this brand is not for everyone, just as an example), as well as quite a few crisps and interesting nibbles such as these graze boxes (I got a dark chocolate cherry tart one with pecans, dried fruit and dark chocolate buttons in, very nice!). This is the first meal deal I've bought that actually felt worth it, plus the new sandwich is really good!














So if you need a reasonable meal deal, this is a good one to pick!

Hope this helps!

Waitrose news!

Hello! Waitrose have released a whole new range of vegan (as part of vegetarian) foods! Some of this is currently on offer, so I'm telling you about it!

First, they've released Vivera products, which I believe was previously only easily accessible via Ocado. In my local store, this is on offer, with the pulled veggie and shawarma kebab packs going down to £2.24 from a previous price. However online it doesn't suggest this is a reduction. On Ocado the pulled veggie is £3.29 so this suggests it is a reduced price...Who knows?! Either way, it'll save money to not have to add it to a £40+ shop on Ocado, which is nice!














They also have some ready made meals available that are vegan. Woohoo! This includes a green thai curry (no fish involved, how awesome?!) and chilli made with soya mince. However these aren't on offer and feel quite pricey at £3.00, although not as bad as some, so I'll just leave this as a little side note.

Hope this helps!

Tesco packet cheese sauce mix!

Hello! I'm back again with something that isn't an offer, but may help you to save money and still eat what you want (veganised, in this case!). Tesco recently released a free from cheese sauce packet mix. Not only is it milk free and egg free (it actually says vegan, wahey for clear labeling! However, this isn't online, it just says vegetarian there) but it's also gluten free.

This mix only costs 59p and just requires 200ml of plant milk to make it. However, I've tried a powder mix before that made my mouth want to run away from the taste, so I decided I'd try it out before I posted about it. I have now tried it. It's very acceptable! It's not as good as homemade cheese sauce, but it reminds me of nice packet mixes I used to eat before going to vegan, so I'm happy with it.

By costing just 59p, this means if you buy the cheapest pack of suitable pasta from Tesco (20/30p depending what type you buy) and add this, you can make a vegan mac and cheese for well under £1. I added salt and pepper to my sauce to make it just right for me. If you want to push it further, I also added VBites chorizo which was going out of date on the day I purchased it from Holland and Barrett, meaning I only paid 82p for it. You could also add some veg, such as cauliflower, broccoli, peas or spinach if you want to add something healthy but still keep it at a reasonable price.

Here's what to look out for. In my Tesco it was in the free from section.













Hope this helps!

Frys Ocado offer!

Hello! Frys is on offer at Ocado again. Yay! This deal is a particularly good one too. Most of their products are currently half price, meaning they are under £2 a box (except the country roast which is more expensive to begin with). This offer seems to happen twice a year, so now would be an excellent time to stock up ready for Christmas.

This offer is available until 31/10/2017, however stock keeps selling out, so if you see all of your favourites in stock it's worth getting your order in! Don't forget to consider postage if you don't have a voucher which makes this free.

Just head here to see what's on offer: https://www.ocado.com/webshop/getCategories.do?tags=%7C20000%7C11616%7C19998

Ocado also have lots of offers available, particularly for first time shoppers, both on their site and from places such as vouchercodes.co.uk, so have a quick look to see if there is an offer that suits you!

Hope this helps!

Follow Your Heart has landed!!

Hello! If you haven't heard, Follow Your Heart now has 3 products in Sainsburys! Yaaaaay! It is their original vegenaise, honey mustard dressing and caesar dressing.

You may be thinking 'how is this saving me money you mad magpie??' Well, 2 ways! Firstly, I know a large number of people travel to get their jars of vegenaise. With it being in a major supermarket, this could save a lot of time and money in travel. Secondly, the jar is only £2.50! The two dressings are £3.25. Considerably cheaper than some places.
However, I appreciate that people like to support their local independent stores, this is just for information for those who would like to buy it from a supermarket.

This news was first released by blogger Fat Gay Vegan, you can see his post here: http://fatgayvegan.com/2017/10/06/breaking-news-follow-your-heart-news/

I don't believe there is currently a list of stores that stock them, but as soon as there is, I'll update this post as quickly as possible!  Here's the store list (thanks again to Fat Gay Vegan!): http://fatgayvegan.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/Sainsburys-Store-List.pdf

If you can't find it in your shop (it should be in the fridge section with their vegan cheeses), try asking the customer service desk as they can look up when it should be coming in or if it's out the back of the store and not yet on the shelves.




Hope this helps!
