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 →

Eating Seasonally & Rhubarb Baked Oats (recipe)

We are a privileged generation, we have everything in abundance, from clothing and beauty to food in all its various forms, but because of the array of products we are slowly beginning to suffocate under the pile of waste that accompanies them. I doubt that 2.5 billion years ago in the stone age cavemen popped... Continue Reading →

As a Vegan: Social Scenes

Being in the minority during celebrations and gatherings can be, and often is, difficult; at times, you may think it is impossible that your family will accept your choice and not question you at every opportunity that arises. However, there are things each person can do to feel more included without being overly pushy. This... Continue Reading →

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

However, don’t let your previous experiences with avocado (I'm thinking the basic avocado toast) put you off incorporating it into other dishes because I can assure you it can work some wonders. It... Continue Reading →

As a Vegan: Friendships​

This is a broad subject, but not as broad as Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson’s shoulders, and so I deem it manageable.  Friendships are the essence of life, said someone some time ago. 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 →
