[Review] Upton Naturals Thai Curry Noodle Real Meal Kit - Vegan ready meal kit


 

The noodles are similar to the refrigerated pre-cooked udon noodles, but the Upton Naturals Thai Curry Noodle kit is shelf stable and does not need to be refrigerated. Inside the foil packet, you'll find the curry sauce, winged bean, and seitan. The fried onions are in the small vacuum sealed plastic package.

Preparation was very easy. I made mine on the stovetop, but you can make it in the microwave, too. I, personally, would recommend making it on the stovetop because the sauce is very liquidy - almost to the point of it being soup. As a result of the sauce texture, I wanted to boil off some of the liquid to make it a bit thicker.

The noodles are precooked and they come out in a block. Unlike the ones in the refrigerated packages, these were vacuum sealed, so they were slightly harder (tougher). You should let them soak in the sauce a bit to loosen up before trying to break them apart. If you don't wait, the noodles will break into smaller pieces.

The flavor is much better than the Pad See Ew variety I tried in the past. I think that since it's a vegan product, this particular dish lends itself better to being tasty without the animal products, in my opinion.

I would consider purchasing this flavor of the product again.

Personally, for me, this was not enough by itself for lunch. It could be that I eat too much, but I view lunch as my main meal of the day. I ate mine with a side of stir-fried bell peppers and bok choy.

I got all of these products (the Upton Naturals kits, bell peppers, and the Kimino Ume Sparkling water) from Imperfect Foods. You can use my personal link (not sponsored) to receive $20 off your first order: click here for more info.

[Skincare Review] Head-to-Head Test: Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair vs. La Mer The Concentrate

 As promised, here is my blog comparing the Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair vs. the La Mer The Concentrate. FTC disclaimer: I was sent both of these items for free in exchange for my full and honest review. I tried to be as scientific as humanly possible. I had a blinded reviewer (my mom) who was actually unaware I was even doing a skincare test, so her opinion is completely blinded and she tried really hard to give a full and honest review of differences she noticed. I did this for 2 weeks. In the 14 days before the test, I was testing out the Estee Lauder ANP product in exchange for my review. I had enough product left (and actually received a second sample to test). My nighttime skincare routine was the same as usual. 1) DHC Cleansing Oil - Buy from YesStyle | Buy from Amazon 2) Micellar Water (for eye makeup) 3) Rosette Cleansing Paste Sea Clay Smooth - Buy From YesStyle  | Buy from Amazon I used my PMD Clean (from CAUSEBOX) to wash my face.
