To complement our picnic foods, my friend also brought some vegan sweet treats from a place called The Herdsman: Inspiring Foods in Churchlands. Apparently this place sells a lot of lovely foods, so if you're in the area, please go check it out. I've never been there before, so I'll have to check it out too :)
I forgot the name of one of the sweets, but it was like a power bar. We could see almonds, sesame seeds, flax seeds, pepitas, goji berries and we could taste a lovely coconuty flavour. I'm sure there were more healthy ingredients too.
He also bought a vegan caramel slice. It was delicious. It was so rich but not in a sickly sweet kind of way. And I felt guilt-free eating it. I will definitely go to The Herdsman and get more of these babies.

Picnics are a great solution for saving money on food when you catch up with friends. Although, I strongly recommend you wear multiple layers of clothing if you go for a picnic in winter. Even though the sun is shining, the wind can get absolutely freezing.
