For a while now, I have been craving a big bowl of ramen noodles with copious amounts of soy sauce and broth for dipping, accompanied with a nice wedge of crusty ‘buttered’ bread – it’s weird because I’ve never actually had ramen before. So, I can only assume that I’ve actually been craving what I grew up on and that’s instant noodles. Continue reading “One Pot Vegan Ramen.”
I don’t really enjoy porridge that much anymore. I think it’s because I ate it every morning for breakfast, for the best part of two years, when I was a vegetarian and I just slowly got tired of it. Now, I crave savoury food for breakfast and I try my best to keep it as interesting as possible, so that I don’t get bored or fed up of eating the same foods over and over again: like I did with porridge.

Baked beans are a staple in my diet these days and I didn’t actually start liking them until around three years ago. Now, I eat them most days and I don’t care what time of the day it is. Continue reading “Spicy, Smoky Beans”
Being welsh, you would expect me to know better. You’d expect me to want to re-create traditional Welsh recipes and make them vegan and you’d likely expect them to still be tasty and delicious -right? For the most part I do try. But sometimes I get it wrong. Take last year for example. Last year I made a massive faux-par and I turned a traditional welsh cake into a bloody travesty – I tried to make it healthier, vegan, low carb, low-fat and also gluten free – the outcome: less than impressive. I’m still reeling today at my failed attempts. Continue reading “Traditional Welsh Cakes.”
If you scroll aimlessly through social media: whether it be Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter; you will likely fall on a post where some fitness freak is spouting tosh about finding balance in their life and everyone should do this, that, and the other to achieve it too. That’s great. Finding balance in life is an incredible thing and it has truly changed me – my personality, my outlook on life, and everything that is involved with the fitness world. Continue reading “What It’s Like To Truly Have Balance: Life After E.D.”
So, it is veganuary: the month where thousands of people take on the vegan diet for a month as a challenge for themselves. Some people go back to their normal way of eating after the month has ended and others decide to continue the vegan lifestyle, whether it’s just for a couple more months or for life. So, I thought now would be a good time as any to share this post, which I wrote back in the summer, as it was something which got me thinking -is there such a thing as cruelty-free eggs?
Last year I wrote my first Christmas guide for the blog: Gift Ideas for the Home Cook, Foodie & Meat-Head. And while it didn’t get very many page likes, it was one of my most viewed posts. So this year, I decided to write another guide; only this time for vegans: Gift Ideas for the Pedantic Vegan & Everyone In Between. Now, I don’t mean to insult anyone by the title, but I do feel that it is apt for the way some vegans live their lives – I am by no means judging – which can be intimidating for the average person who isn’t fully up-to-date with veganism and the lifestyle. And I know this to be true, as a few months ago I had my sister ring me in distress as she was stumped, as to what to buy a vegan: it was all last minute. I gave my sister many ideas, but in the end she settled on an orchid, from fear of having the gift not being fully appreciated.
So with this gift guide, I aim to help you mere mortals – who may fear us vegans – with suitable gift ideas, that are thoughtful and easy to find, which would be greatly appreciated by any vegan; whether they’re pedantic or anything in between.
