Vegan Mofo 1st; Vegan Swap Box

What a wonderful surprise this weekend to have my Vegan Swap Box arrive!
There was a lovely card inside as well as all the vegan treats.

The box included; Urban Fruit's Strawberries and Cherries, Sugar Free Peppermint Gum, Giant Couscous and the star of the show Indian Sweets.
My swap buddy lives in Leeds and has access to amazing Indian food, as proved by the menu included!

When I was in Mysore this year, I tried Indian sweets for the first time, and they did not dissapoint, they brought back lovely memories. I read in the Lonely Planet that 13 Tons of pure silver is converted into Edible silver to be used every year in the production of similar sweets.
Vegan indian sweets are mostly made of cashew nuts and look amazing!
Also in the package was that HUGE wholewheat couscous, which I had for lunch today, I mixed it with some salad and some chilli powder. This couscous really has to be cooked, even then I left it with a slight biting texture.
I added the Strawberries to my porridge this weekend too!
I've never taken part, and was a little intimidated by what to send myself, but I think my swappie will like what she got too!
I'm off to munch on more Indian sweets now...
You can sign up to the swap here, its once a month:

  1. Yay, the vegan food swap! I love sending and receiving the parcels and I've loved everything I've been sent so far. I'll have to keep an eye out for those little packets of cherries, they look like a great on-the-go snack.
