Spaghetti and homemade meatballs recipe

These turned out so good. They're delicious and pack quite a bit of protein. The whole family loved them and are eager for me to make some more. I kept the leftover meatballs in the fridge for two days, so it's safe to make a larger batch as they will keep if not eaten immediately.... Continue Reading →


5 unusual types of meditation you must try!

These are unusual, or quirky (yes, quirky, that's a fun word) types of meditation. Regular mantra or focussing-on-the-breath meditation isn't for everyone so I thought I'd share some more fun and engaging ways you can practise meditation. Laughter Meditation It's precisely what you think: you laugh. You may feel a bit silly at first (or... Continue Reading →

Chunky cabbage soup recipe

My mum used to make this all the time when I was younger. I wanted to taste it and be immersed in nostalgia. Only issue: neither my mum nor I could remember what veg went into it. I tried it really basic with just onion, cabbage, carrot and tomatoes, but it didn't seem quite right. I... Continue Reading →

3 easy vegan sandwiches

In celebration of successfully making three different types of bread (I know, so celebratory worthy), I wanted to share 3 quick and easy sandwiches you can have with the different types of bread. Of course, other bread will work too. Each sandwich takes only a few minutes to make - talk about easy! Tofu, cucumber... Continue Reading →

If you’re in the mood for a burger

May I recommend Handmade Burger Co? I like a good burger, and this place serves masterpieces! It has 5 vegan burgers to choose from and one which can be made vegan. That's pretty good. It seems to be becoming more common for chain restaurants to state which meals are vegan (rather than just vegetarian) which makes... Continue Reading →

Vegan egg fried rice recipe

Using cauliflower rice, of course! Regular rice will work too, but this is a lot quicker. And tastier (although, biased opinion 'cause cauliflower rice is everything to me!). My partner helped me make this. One of his duties was cutting the broccoli into baby pieces, which I'm very grateful for 'cause it's such fiddly work.... Continue Reading →

Wholemeal pitta bread recipe

I think I've made bread every weekend for the past couple of months (I'm on a roll). This week, I thought it was time to give pitta bread a go. The recipe I based this on uses nigella seeds. I, of course, know what these are, but thought that sesame seeds were a much better... Continue Reading →

Visiting a food festival

Our little town had a food festival the other week. I went down without much expectation of there being anything suitable. But boy, was I surprised. There was so much vegan food! And so, I treated myself... This was from a raw plant-based stall. All their cakes looked so good, but I couldn't resist a... Continue Reading →

Autumn roast veggies recipe

With cauliflower rice, of course. This dressing has become my new go-to; it's a little bit more adventurous than lemon juice but still takes minimal effort to make. My partner had a tomato sauce (sautéd leeks and mushrooms with tomato purée) with his, which he liked very much. So feel free to experiment with different... Continue Reading →
