My Month In Photos | May 2018

May has felt like a really great month, probably helped along by the fact that we left the country for a few days and we've seen a tremendous amount of sunshine in the UK too. It's been a nice level busy, without feeling too crazy, and it's really got me in the mood for Summer.

Deliciously Free From 'Free Shakes' With Sainsbury's

Last week I was invited along to Sainsbury's HQ and their Food Innovation Centre in London to take part in their #DeliciouslyFreeFrom Iced Desserts 'FreeShake' Masterclass. When this invite popped into my inbox I was really excited because not only was I yet to try their new vegan friendly Iced Desserts, but also because this event just sounded like so much fun! I've also surprisingly never enjoyed a vegan 'Freak Shake' before so I was really looking forward to learning how to make my own.

Linda's Veggie Table

On Saturday myself and the lovely Jess from Simply Living Vegan headed into London for our first ever Linda's Veggie Table event. It was an event we'd seen promoted on their social media pages for National Vegetarian Week and we just loved the look of it. As a huge Linda McCartney Foods fan anyway I didn't need much convincing!

Doughnut Time | Vegan


Last weekend I was enjoying a little shopping trip at Westfield Stratford when I came across the Doughnut Time van outside on 'The Street' section of the shopping centre. I had already heard of this doughnut company before and from all of the amazing photos I'd seen of other peoples doughnuts from there I knew they had some great vegan options so I couldn't resist checking them out for myself!

The Vegan Kind Beauty Box - May 2018

The Vegan Kind Beauty Box is a bi-monthly subscription box packed full of vegan friendly and cruelty free beauty products. It's a box I always look forward to receiving because not only does it introduce me to new products and brands I might not have used before, but also because it always prompts me to indulge in a little self pampering at home!

All Day Brunch | Vegan

The arrival of the weekend always signals that it's time for an all day brunch in our house but this is a meal which can be enjoyed on any day and at any time of the week. In fact it also happens to be one of my favourite easy dinners to knock up after a long day. It's the ultimate in vegan comfort food!

Mushroom Bolognese | Vegan

Pasta is a staple in our house and rarely a week goes by when we're not enjoying it! More often than not I'm happy to eat it with a simple tinned passata and some chopped mushrooms but if we have the time then we also really like making a vegan take on a bolognese. This is another dish that we always make more of so that we can enjoy it again on a jacket potato another night.

Tofu & Vegetable Stir Fry | Vegan

Stir fry's are one of my favourite meals to enjoy at home because they're just so quick and easy and they're a great way of packing in loads of vegetables into your diet. You can really mix this up to suit your tastes and add in whatever vegetables you fancy, there really aren't any rules! I tend to buy the ready to eat Cauldron tofu pieces because I still haven't perfected the cooking of tofu myself and I just find that this is the easiest way for me to enjoy a quick stir fry with minimal hassle. But again you may wish to add whatever tofu you prefer!

Mixed Bean Chilli | Vegan

Today I'm sharing another favourite regular meal in our house, the mixed bean chilli! I just love how versatile this dish is and that you can enjoy it in a number of different ways - either with rice, on top of a jacket or even in tacos. Despite the fact there are only two of us living in my house we always make enough for four people as then we can enjoy it again another night or for a lunch the next day. 


bio-D Ethical Cleaning Products | Vegan & Cruelty Free | AD

As many of you will probably already know this week is National Vegetarian Week and I've been  really keen to produce lots of content around this campaign to help promote a more ethical and plant based lifestyle. I was so happy when the environmentally friendly cleaning brand bio-D got in touch to collaborate on a blog post and video this week to help to promote their vegan, cruelty free and eco friendly cleaning products.

Postcards From Ibiza | Travel

Last week my husband and I jetted off for a blissful few days in Ibiza for our five year wedding anniversary. We actually got married in Ibiza and decided to return back to our venue for our stay - luxury boutique hotel Agroturismo Atzaro. We hadn't been back there since our wedding day so it really did feel so special to be staying there again and reliving all of the special memories we made there.

Cauliflower, Chickpea & Potato Curry | Vegan

Homemade curries are my absolute favourite and they always make a regular appearance on our weekly food plan. They're so easy to cook from scratch and make a very balanced and healthy meal. I always like to load my curries with chickpeas to ensure that we're getting that all important protein and the combination of them with potatoes and cauliflower is just so delicious! To be honest though  you can load this curry up with whatever vegetables take your fancy and I always find that making a curry is an excellent way of using up a number of different vegetables from your fridge.  


National Vegetarian Week | 14th - 20th May 2018

Today marks the start of National Vegetarian Week and in a bid to get involved, and to encourage  more people to leave meat off their plates, I'll be sharing some of my own favourite home made vegan meal recipes on the blog all throughout this week.
