  6. Place Mushrooms on top of onions and cook for 4 minutes or until mushrooms and onions have either shrunk or brown a little, then mix together.
  7. (Add any seasonings you wish here so the mushrooms can soak it up).
  8. Add Chopped tomatoes to pan and cook till juices mix with mushrooms and onions (around 2-3 minutes).
  9. Lastly add Spinach and Salt and mix it all together cook until Spinach is slightly wilted. (shrunk).
  10. Once that is ready you can choose to heat up your flatbread under the grill for a few minutes or not and you can add a sliced avocado with seasoning as a side. Either wrap everything up or just eat as is. Enjoy!

Notes-  This meal can turn into many other meals with different flavours, you could switch out the bread for Rice or Quinoa. Change the seasonings to make different flavours, leave out the tomatoes.. etc. Its up to you and what you like.

SUGAR FREE VEGAN SNACKS – On the go food options ideas, GLUTEN FREE | SKY CHRISTINA

Right now while the world is going crazy and snacking is on the rise, i’m sure most of us don’t want our diets to go crazy too.

So I decided to hopefully help out a little by providing you all with some snack ideas that you can definitely be lazy with and just grab and go.

These are some of my go to no added sugar, Vegan (Gluten free) snack options for you to give a try.

These are snacks you can buy in most supermarkets in UK like sainsburys, tesco, Waitrose etc , a couple of these are in the US too.

And I know you are probably wondering, ‘ Where are the fruits and nuts etc..’ and yes, you have the obvious fruits, veggies, nuts, seeds snacks but i’m gonna share with you some ready made, just shove it in my mouth, foods.

Now the Larabar is one of my current faves, and they have a range of flavours to choose from ( not all are no added sugar though but i think the UK ones are at the moment) . If you are used to your typical very sweet chocolate bar than this might take a little getting used to, as it uses Dates to sweeten the bar. However I have recommended this snack bar to so many of my friends and so far they are all now obsessed, (ha i should be paid) so give it a go, and try different flavours because you might not like one but another one might take your fancy.

Popchips are definitely a snack I can’t get enough of, its like the Pringles catchphrase “Once you pop, you can’t stop” haha. I wish more flavours were made with no added sugar but other flavours are Vegan, so my Vegan friends – you got options.

Corners crisps, its popcorn but so much better. I get bored of salt popcorn sometimes but I could never get bored of these haha. It does have a different feel and taste than popcorn(which I love) but if you love popcorn you’ll love these.

Now Nakd bars definitely have something for everyone, (sorry my nut allergy friends, I think they might all have nuts) and they are sold in a lot of places, so it’s very likely you may have come across them before. These fruit bars are unbelievable good. I have to admit I tried one and hated it at first, but than I revisited them later, but different flavours and was pleasantly surprised. When you do not eat added sugar and you are Vegan, snacks are a myth (well at least that was the case a few years ago when I started). So when I found these, they became my new chocolate bars and cake replacements. I know some people who say they hate dried fruits or nuts but i’ve got them to try different flavours of these and now they love it. There are so many flavours, you are bound to like at least one, even if you are a picky eater.

Deliciously Ella energy balls were my saviour when I first cut off sugar. I was obsessed. I also loved the fact that I could make them at home because she shared the recipe on her site . The price of these balls is quite steep so it’s great that you can make your own at home cheaper, but also I found out you can buy them in bulk online for cheaper too. The cashew and ginger ones are really good too. ( Not all of the flavours are ‘my version’ of no added sugar as some use syrups, but they’re all better than sugary sweets regardless – make sure to check ingredients)

And lastly some popcorn! Popcorn is great if you want a snack thats low in calories, however salt popcorn is probably the only flavour you will probably find that has no added sugar within.

(affiliate links above)

Also I linked where you can buy these options in bulk as they can be kind of expensive compared to regular snacks, so I usually buy in bulk from amazon, which comes out so much cheaper. Or I just wait till the shops put them on offer. 

I’m looking forward to a future with more no added vegan options!

I can see it happening. 

We already have more and more labels saying no added sugar (just wish they said no added sweetener too, but progress is great so I will appreciate for now)

There are a lot more other options for people who consume milk or syrups or sweeteners, but obviously I don’t consume those things so that is why I don’t promote them. I thought i’d mention it though because I know some of you are making a transition to vegan/sugar free and those options may help along the way before you make the full change.

I hope that this post aids you on your journey.

Happy snacking!

30 YEARS OLD! SINGLE, NO KIDS, still LIVING with PARENTS – Mental Health| SKY CHRISTINA

So your nearly 30, and you feel like your still not where you wanted to be in life.

People keep asking you when you are going to have kids or get married, or even move out of your parents house….

All your friends are married or on their 3rd kid and your here still trying to figure out your career.

Here me and Hayley play a little game of ‘Never have i ever…’ to go through our experience of getting to 30 years of age.

Many people in our society feel depressed or even like they want to end it all because they haven’t achieved what is expected of a 30 year old by the time they hit 30.

I feel like this is a serious topic that affects our mental health more so for women and is not talked about enough.

Did you go through something similar?

Do you think 30 is old?

Are you worried about turning 30 years old?

Comment down below and lets shake off some stress.
