This week, I traveled one afternoon to Leuven, you can read all about part 1 here!
Some other impressions:
Adresse? Kookwinkel Van Eyck, Tiensestraat 15, 3000 Leuven/ Open? All days open, except on Sundays & on Holidays: from 10h-12.30 h & from 13.30 h-18 h.
I was also going to visit a lovely larger supermarket, called Origin O. It is near de Vismarkt. They sell organic & non-organic produce. Check it all out!
Adresse? Origine O, Leuven , Craenendonck 5 , 3000 Leuven/ Open?: Monday till Friday: from 9h till 18. 30 h & Saturday from 9h till 18 h.
They sell a large range of carob & vegan chocopastes! The one more expensive then the other! I prefer this vegan one, white & semi-sweet chocolate one. It is not too sweet either.It is from the Dutch brand: De Rit. Here is their website, in Dutch.
They also sell stevia-sweetened products, like stevia-sweetened Belgian chocolate bars from Cavalier, Stevia-sweetened choco pastes, alternative sugar sweetened speculaas-pastes, etc. There is also a large variety of Diabetic-friendly edible products, like marzipan, etc!
This shop also sells a whole arrange of superfood powders, all Raw, Vegan & Gluten-free! 🙂 They are reasonably priced too, except the raw 100% beetroot juice powder, that is very expensive: 24€ for 1 sachet of 200 gr!!! 😦
Here, in this shop, you can also find a large range of gluten-free products, mostly of the German brand: Schär! 😉 These are different sort of GF crackers, GF breads, GF cereal, GF breadcrumbs, GF cookies, GF chocolate cookies, GF waffles, GF wraps, etc! Yeahhh!
I also bought these lovely looking products that are Rice-whip & Soy-whip, both from the brand: Soyatoo! I am going to test them out soon! They are not so healthy, just read the ingredients, but I saw them 1.5 years ago, when I was visiting Germany, in Berlin’s vegan supermarket, Veganz, but I couldn’t take the whips with me because we were on a Holiday there & I already bought so many other edible vegan things! So, I am so happy that I found it nearby, here in Belgium! Yes! I also bought a vegan, non-soy cheese called, Cheezly!
My last stop, that afternoon, is something special for the meat-eaters among us, was the craft butchery, called De Artisanale Slagerij Rondou! Adresse? Pensstraat 5, 3000 Leuven. Open? Sunday & Monday closed. Open Tuesday till Thursday, from 9h till 13h & from 14h till 18h. Friday & Saturday, open from 8.30h-13h & from 14h-18h, but Saturday they close already at 17h! 🙂 Just click onto the following pictures, to read & see it all better!
This is a really famous craft butchery in & round Leuven. All of the meat that they are selling is gluten-free except when the meat is a schnitzel & or a burger!! yes, yes! 🙂
They will sell your usual meat but also specialized meat like, calf’s brain, specialized beef sorts, etc! Just read it on & in the picture:
I bought these 2 items there: 10 slices of home-made pork roast with herbal spices like rosemary, finely sliced. It costed me: 3.27 € & a jar of regional grain mustard from De Ster, a local mustard maker since 1924 from only 5 to 10 km away! This spiced grain mustard is an acknowledged approved product in Belgium, from this region! This is called in my language: Een erkend Streekproduct! 1 normal pot costed me 3.5€. I will be using it later in my edible posts! They also sell packets of Maldon sea salt & packets of smoked Maldon sea salt here! Each packet costs: 4.5€. That is good to know, because there aren’t that many places in Belgium, where I can buy my favourite sea salt! 😉
So, my friends, I hope you enjoyed the second tour in Leuven! There is still at least 1 part that will follow this sequel! 😉 It will be an all vegan post, with 2 main vegan items! See you all later, my lovely one’s! 🙂 xxx
