Rose jam / Fishless fingers

img_1433ROSE JAM
I love everything with the smell of roses! The bubble bar Rose Jam is for that reason my absolute favourite bubble bar from Lush! When I was in Bath, last year, I treated myself to one. That was the last time I enjoyed a bath with this magic product and I need to do it again soon. I definitely need a bath in my future house, because I need to treat myself a lot more to this amazing product. First of all.. the smell is intoxicating! It’s smells like my favourite Lush product Ro’s Argan, but then you can take a bath with it. The bath water turns into a perfect pink (I mean.. who’s doesn’t want that?!) and you just don’t want to get out. Second.. it leaves your skin so soft and incredible. This is such a GO & TRY product! You can go to your nearest Lush shop to get one of course, but you can also order it online.

I don’t know where to start, because I have a very double feeling with these fishless fingers from Quorn. I want to say: they taste too good! Though, then I’m saying that they’re the perfect imitation of a dead fish’s body. I have the same with burgers which taste too good. Then again, I can’t change the fact that I used to be a meat eater and that I loved the taste of it. I also loved fish fingers, it’s something we often ate on a Sunday at home, with mayo and ketchup on a white sandwich. So it gives me good childhood memories too. I think, just img_6983because we love this taste, it’s alright to imitate and enjoy. I definitely think it’s perfect for the people who are having a hard time to make the transition because of taste. These days they can imitate so good and these fishless fingers the big proof of that. They taste exactly the same as I remember. Like 0 difference. It’s like you’re eating fish. So if there are huge fish (finger) lovers here, you have to try these. I ate them with some potato waffles (sorry, I looooveee these) and grilled some huge asparagus with them. Oh and + some yummy mayonnaise of course. It was a perfect meal. The next time I make them, I’m going to put them on a white sandwich and make them they way my dad used to make it. Yay!

Quorn Fillets / Vegenaise

QUORN FILLETS
img_0766Such a good move! Quorn decided to do some vegan products. It’s handy because you can get Quorn in basically any supermarket. They use egg in a lot of their products though, so as a vegan it was never an option. It’s great that they make vegan things now. (Veganism is slowly taking over the world!) I don’t eat meat substitutes that often to be honest. I sometimes get them as a treat or for a recipe. I was very curious about the fillets as I used to quite like the chicken-style pieces when I was a vegetarian. So I chose to grill one and ate it with a salad. It was very nice. I liked the structure and the taste itself too. It goes very nicely with salads and very well with the ‘Vegenaise’ below. You just have to make sure you don’t cook them too long as they will go dry then. But overall, I’m very pleased with this. For more of their vegan products and some nice recipes you can visit their website.

VEGENAISE
img_0767One thing I absolutely love is mayonnaise. Must be a Dutch thing. I like to put it with my fries, mix it through salads, put it on sandwiches and burgers, make dip sauce with it for my crisps, mix it with avocado.. it goes with so many things. When I just turned vegan I didn’t even know there was vegan mayonnaise, but I was very happy when I discovered it. After trying a few different brands I definitely like the organic ‘Vegenaise’ from ‘Follow your Heart’ the best. They also have an original one, but whenever you can choose an organic version, I think you should. The taste is just amazing and it’s exactly what I like. ‘Follow your Heart’ has so many good products though and you can all find them on their website. I think it’s a very good brand for new vegans too, as they have so many good substitutes for so many things. I didn’t try everything yet, but what I do know is that this mayonnaise is definitely worth a try!
