If you like the idea of nut milk and want to make your own, here is a kitchen gadget that will do it all for you – the Tribest Soyabella. And you don’t just have to use it for soya milk, despite the name – it makes lots of other yummy milks too.
Sprouting is such an important part of the living foods lifestyle, and an automatic sprouter really does do it all for you! I’ve got the Tribest Freshlife at home, and use it all the time. Why not try it? You’ll love the ease with which it gives you perfect sprouts every time. Most of it can even go in the dishwasher after use.

Christmas wouldn’t be complete without some skincare products, and I was fortunate to discover Conscious Skincare when I was a speaker at Bristol Vegfest in May 2016. Have a browse at their website – I’m sure you’ll find just the thing.
A neat kitchen gadget in this price range is a yoghurt maker from Tribest. Why not give someone a surprise with a Yolife? Making yoghurt at home with a milk substitute ensures you get more probiotics than you would with shop-bought yoghurt. Quote RAWFOOD10 for your 10% discount.
Finally, if you hanker after authentic products with a feel-good factor, I love the range made by artisans for SWAGS World. From sandals to bags made from recycled newspapers and magazines (I’ve got both the handbag and tote bag from SWAGS World, and much admired they are too!), toys and even Christmas decorations, that’s your shopping list sorted!
