Devon Diaries Day Two: Countryside walks fuelled by Linda McCartney & Vegan Bacon

Day Two:

Blessed with the summer sun, we were able to see some beautiful places here in Devon. However, in order to provide me with the right type of Tor-Climbing energy I needed a good brekkie!

In the small town of Newton Abbot, I had found a Holland and Barret with some sort of buy 3 get the 4th free offer. Chose some quality vegan bits – comfort food rather than super healthy – but that’s ok when on holiday & when making a good side salad to go with, right? Below you can see the new V bites Maple Flavoured rashers, nice for a change with a slightly sweet flavour to them. We also bought some Linda McCartney sausages to go with our simple breakfast.

Tummies happy, we had on our doorstep the most gorgeous countryside to explore! We visited Hay Tor that day.

Stopping by at a local pub we were visited by some feathery friends:

Lastly on our day trip around the tors, I was pleasantly surprised by the odd vegan finds you can pick up in small local shops. I was amazed to find Swedish Glace ice cream (in varying flavours!) in one small village shop, and some vegan cakes. Goes to show vegan travel isn’t impossible – just keep a positive mind and things will pop up!!

For our dinner, we had Fry’s Country Pie, with fries, veggies, salad and vegan mayo & ketchup. Ultimate comfort food followed by a cheeky slice of new found cake with schlagfix spray cream. If you haven’t tried this Mrs Crimble’s cake it’s delish, spicy apple cake with a treacley sweetness to it. Pair it with custard, ice cream or cream for added naughtyness!!
