I will not be a Hangry Vegan at Conference this year!

Last year at Labour Party Conference I really struggled to find decent vegan food to eat. Which led me to eating a diet of predominately chips! Some of that was due to it not being readily available but also in part due to me not being as prepared as I could have been. Below is a…

Keen on Keen’s Kitchen

I wanted to share with you some of my favourite recipes from one of my favourite vegan food blogs: Keen’s Kitchen   My photo of the seriously yummy Satay Rice Their recipe for Satay Rice Salad is divine and I really recommend you give it a try!  Photo from Keen’s Kitchen   Photo from Keen’s…

Hot Chocolate with the Works!

Being Vegan is a great way to eat a healthier diet…but we all need the occasional treat and on a cold frosty day, nothing beats this! Hot chocolate with whipped cream and marshmallows may not scream vegan eating but it can be made really easily and is just as tasty as the non-vegan alternative!     …

Shepherds Pie and Vegan Mince

Mince I use meat substitutes at least once a week in my meal planning. I think they allow you to be more diverse in your recipes, they keep my non-vegans (mostly) happy and they allow me to cook some of my old favourites from my pre-vegan days. It’s worth checking those labels though as the…

Happy Veganuary! Lets milk it!

Holy Cow! There are so many different plant milks available! There was thing holding me back becoming Vegan and strangely it was also the one thing that made me want to go Vegan. (I’ll talk about my issues with the Dairy industry at some point in a later blog post…). I drink a lot of…

Our D-Day, October 14th 2016

October 14th is going to be a date that stays in our mind for our family. It is the day that we were told that our son was on the ASD Spectrum. Rufus is a whirlwind. He is bubbly, bright, sociable and does not stop. He hasn’t stopped since he found his legs and arms at…

Spiced Butternut Squash Stew

This is one of my favourite Vegan dishes, that I have served to many a guest at my house and it always is well received; even my fussy toddler will eat it! It’s based on a Jamie Oliver recipe from his budge series. The fab thing about this dish is it is very versatile, you…

Awesome Vegan Chilli Base

I made the leap to Veganism earlier this year, I had planned to transition over a few months but like most things I do jumped straight in with both feet and I haven’t looked back since (well except on the odd occasion that mean people around me buy cream cakes…but even then I haven’t given…

Dark Chocolate and Coconut Vegan Brownies

I’ve tried quite a few different brownie recipes and to be honest, pretty much every one I’ve tried has resulted in something yummy to eat, after all if you’re mixing things together with chocolate you can’t go far wrong in my book. What I often get cravings for as a vegan though are certain textures,…
