This year I am really trying to champion more plant powered brands that are raising awareness about food waste and that embrace sustainability initiatives and I am so pleased to have recently discovered the ZENB range of delicious Veggie Bites and Veggie Sticks.
These have been my go to as a tasty snack whilst taking some time out reading and having a cup of coffee on weekends, or in between busy working days when I want something quick but delightful and balanced to munch on whilst attending zoom after zoom!
The ZENB range of snacks are plant-based, vegan, organic, gluten free, a great source of fibre, as well as having added benefits such as being free from artificial flavours or preservatives! Win win win!
ZENB Veggie Sticks
The name ZENB is derived from the Japanese word “Zenbu” meaning “whole” and what I adore is that this is reflected in their range of Veggie Sticks, for which they use as much of the vegetable as possible, including the peel, skin, stem and seeds. This is an excellent way to help reduce food waste as these are the parts of vegetables that are often usually thrown away. It has certainly made me also look at my own food waste whenever I am chopping up vegetables!
I also loved that the snacks also arrive in recyclable packing which is a bonus, especially as with lockdowns I have been so conscious about ensuring I am able to recycle more and am using less products that come in single use packaging or plastics.
The ZENB Veggie Sticks are available in four really tasty flavours – Beetroot, Carrot, Pumpkin and Red Pepper. The Red Pepper is my favourite and it tastes superb!
ZENB Veggie Bites
The ZENB Veggie Bites come in convenient resealable pouches, which are perfect to pop on my desk, and are veggie-first snacks complemented with an enticing blend of fruit, nuts and spices, to create a range of five unique flavour-pairings.
The different innovative flavour combination options are:
- Carrot, Pineapple and Coriander
- Pumpkin, Apple and Cacao Nib
- Beetroot, Orange and Cacao Nib
- Red Pepper, Tomato and Chilli
- Sweet Potato, Mango and Cinnamon
