On Saturday morning I made it my mission to go check out Organic Zone in Lakeside with father dearest 😁. He’s been there before but it was my first time visiting and holy sheezy neezle I was so excited!
They’re open 7 days a week which is awesome because I live quite the drive away, so when I am that side again at least I know they’ll be open! (yaaaas) 😁
Just in case the name itself wasn’t a complete giveaway I’m going to state the obvious – they’re a health shop. 🐒 They have a crazy amount of delicious snacks, freshly baked breads, fresh fruit and vegetables, chocolate, teas, beauty products – you name it, its there. Okay, I didn’t see any vegan cheese but then again I do have to wear glasses for a reason so it could have been somewhere in that fridge. 🤓
Oh oh, did I forget to mention that they also have a smoothie/juice/coffee bar? Completely affordable and delicious! 😍
So uh, all this excitement resulted in a vegan food haul (duh) … what’s budgeting when you find vegan goodies? 😉
Okay so I’m going to do a little show-and-tell in front of the class today and show ya’ll what I got 😁
- Avocado – R12.30
- Cherene Sprouts – R35
- Escentia Fizz ball Rose scented – R14.50
- Mothercity Mushrooms Organic Oyster mushrooms – R49
- Vanilla Chai teabags – R40
- Bubble tea – R25
- Vegan muffin – R13
- Italian Pugliese Bread – R25
- Ginger shot – R15 each
- Utopia cashew nut yoghurt strawberry – 44
Everything that I have tasted so far has been AMAAAZZZING! 😍
Hmm, okay the muffin is initially a little dry and it breaks easily but it does taste pretty good (probably because it’s packed full of sugar and has a sticker on it that says “vegan” which turns me into some crazed creature of excitement)
I haven’t yet tried the yoghurt, fizz ball and bubble tea but I know for a fact that the yoghurt will be incredible because I have tasted goodies from Utopia before and Helen makes very yum yum things! I’m also confident that the bubble tea will taste a lot like Mamma Chia and I have always been in love with that taste and texture so I feel like that’ll also be a winner 😉
I got the Italian Pugliese Bread which was so good 😍 All of the freshly baked breads are vegan except for the Milk & Butter one (duh).
I did ask them nicely to print out the ingredients for me to check out. If you’d like these feel free to drop me a message/comment/mail and I’ll send it through. 😋
Alright, last but not least can we please just discuss how delicious their smoothies are??
They have 4 smoothie options – The Cacao Kicker, Berry, Maca Love and Green Smoothie that are all R32 AND they have the option to grab a paper straw instead of a plastic one! 🌱
Think about the turtles, okay. 💁
That’s all for today, thanks for reading.
OH OH YES, WAIT, BEFORE YOU GO – I decided to make surprise recipe with all the goodies that I got on this trip that I’ll share in my next post 😁🌱😁
Okay, you may leave 😋
Have a good day x
Bye bye now 🐒💕
