Organic Zone – Vegan Food Haul ๐Ÿ˜

On Saturday morning I made it my mission to go check out Organic Zone in Lakeside with father dearest ย ๐Ÿ˜.ย He’s been there before but it was my first time visiting and holy sheezy neezle I was so excited!

They’reย 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)ย ๐Ÿ˜

Just in case the name itself wasn’t a complete giveaway I’m going to state the obvious – they’re a health shop. ย ๐Ÿ’ย  They have a crazy amount of ย 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. ๐Ÿค“

Oh oh, did I forget to mention that they also have a smoothie/juice/coffee bar? Completely affordable and delicious! ๐Ÿ˜

So uh, all this excitement resulted in a vegan food haul (duh) … what’s budgeting when you find vegan goodies?ย ๐Ÿ˜‰

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 ๐Ÿ˜

Shopping list:

  • Avocado – R12.30
  • Cherene Sprouts – R35
  • Escentiaย  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! ๐Ÿ˜

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 ๐Ÿ˜‰

I got the Italian Pugliese Bread which was so good ๐Ÿ˜ย 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. ๐Ÿ˜‹

 

Alright, last but not least can we please just discuss how delicious their smoothies are??

They have 4ย  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! ๐ŸŒฑ

Think about the turtles, okay.ย ๐Ÿ’
