Yay!! Today Planet Manel is 1 year old! Already for a whole year I’ve been writing about my passions. If you follow me for a while already, you know that this is mainly veganism. I love having my blog and I dare to say that I grew a lot in the past year. There were a lot of things that needed to improve and still there are things I work on and I try to improve every time I write something. I want to thank you all for following me, commenting and liking my posts. I really appreciate every one of you and I couldn’t do this if it wasn’t for my readers. Thank you so much!
As you can see, the website changed a little bit. A fresh start for a new year. I hope you like it and that this made it easier to find things. But to really celebrate the 1st anniversary, I created a little Giveaway with some of my personal favourites.
-Peanut butter Nakd bar.
-Banana bread Nakd bar.
-Tony’s Chocolonely (almond/sea salt).
-Lenny & Larry’s cookie (snickerdoodle).
-Heath & Heather tea (green tea and coconut).
-‘Baa Bar’ bubble bar from Lush.
-I mean.. who doesn’t need avocado socks? Definitely great for the avocado-addicts over here! Like me.. I’ve got these sock myself! -Nakd bars for the win! These 2 are my favourite flavours, they even taste great together.. haha! -Tony’s Chocolonely is hard to find here in the UK, but I brought this one especially from Holland. This is definitely the best flavour for sure! Just believe me.. -Just because after that huge work out, you need a treat! -This green tea in combination with ‘Oatly Foamable’ is heaven! It’s like drinking green tea with coconut milk. Call it a ‘tea colada’! -This is actually my second favourite bubble bar (Rose Jam is nmbr 1!!), but this one is lovely before you go to sleep. Soak yourself with this soy lavender goodness! Also.. it looks like a pig snout.. so it’s lovely!

A good plant-based milk.. is always quite a thing isn’t it?! It has to be free from sugar and any other crap, it has to be creamy, taste great by itself, taste great in coffee and tea and if it’s possible it should foam too! There are so many different milks to choose from, but they can’t have it all. Until Oatly came with ‘foamable’. It’s creamy, what makes it great for if you want to use it in your coffee (cappuccino) or tea, it tastes A-mazing by itself and it’s super foamable (it’s in the name.. hehe..). Oatly is a very good brand in general, because they are pure, honest and they don’t use sugar or any other crap. I always liked them from the start and I think their design looks fab! I didn’t stop buying Oatly Barista since the day I discovered it. I now make sure there is always a pack in the house, in case I want to make a lovely Chai Latte, a bowl of porridge (cold or warm) or just drink it on its own. It’s delicious, my absolute favourite milk! Check out their website if you’d like to know more.
I think many people know the Nakd bars, as they sell them basically everywhere. How many of you tried them? Because I really like Nakd bars. They make a great snack for if you have to wait a little longer until your next meal. They’re guilt free, as they’re fully raw, only contain a few ingredients and they don’t contain any processed crap. My favourite one is the ‘peanut butter’, but I also really like ‘cashew’, chocolate’ and ‘carrot’. I do like the soft bars, with the nutty flavours best. I’m not a big fan of the crunchy and fruity flavours. I mostly eat them after or before my work out. They’re great to provide you with a little energy boost or to fill you up after burning up your energy. I think they’re great. One of the good things is, like I said earlier, that you can buy them almost everywhere. What is very perfect when you want a good healthy snack, but you’re on the way. They have a lot of flavours, so I’m sure there is one you like. You can check out all the flavours on their website and find out which one in your favourite?!
