Are You Shooting Yourself in The Foot?​

“If you get shot by an arrow, do you shoot yourself with another?” This is one of my favourite Buddhist parables, as I simply think it resonates with most people. How many times have you found yourself in a not-so-ideal situation, and rather than dealing with it, you simply made yourself feel worse? I can... Continue Reading →

Brownie Berry Cheesecake Slice

When a brownie meets cheesecake in a vegan remake you get a thing of real beauty. I was inspired to create this recipe following the popularity of my Baked Vegan Cheesecake, as I wanted to create a simple alternative for those busy bees, but one that wouldn’t compromise the flavour -et voila,  a hybrid of...

Snickers Energy Truffles

Remember that chocolate bar you loved as a kid, maybe you even remember it as the ‘Marathon’ bar (if you're old enough), sadly your lifestyle choice of becoming plant based, despite all of its delicious benefits, prevents you from enjoying the treat.

Carrot cake is the most loved tea time cake for its... Continue Reading →

Friendships are difficult as f*ck, said I, every day of my life. Without the whole plant-based label they are difficult enough but I... Continue Reading →

As a Vegan: Travelling

Being vegan is the best thing I’ve done. True. Being vegan makes me feel great. Also true. Being vegan is always easy and super accessible. Not always as true as I'd like. When at home, and in a comfortable radius of it (my known and safe territory) eating plant-based could not be anymore enjoyable and... Continue Reading →
