We made our own vegan slaw!!!!
• red cabbage
• red onion • carrot
• lemon juice
• homemade vegan mayo (based on the recipe from @veganrecipeclub 🥄) served here with baked sweet potato, topped with mushrooms, broccoli, sweetcorn, tomatoes and seeds. i used @ohsheglows 10 spice mix for the sauce and it worked really well!!👌💛
This morning's breakfast bowl!! 💚
i used the 'invigorate' frozen smoothie mix from @aldiuk (who are really upping their vegan game), added some wheatgrass and orange juice and topped it with granola and blueberries!! 🌱
Just discovered this website which provides processing and ingredient information on hundreds of different alcoholic drinks!!! i was shocked when i heard that lots of wine aren't vegan but was always unsure of how to check the vegan-ness of different brands. now it's super easy to check before you buy!!! truly a tipsy vegan 🍷👍
This morning's apple and cinnamon porridge 🍏 ft my dressing gown and sheep slippers 🐑
- 1 packet of oats
- half a cup of coconut milk (or any vegan milk of your choice)
- 1 apple (grated)
- handful of sultanas
- sprinkle of cinnamon (to taste)
- handful of walnuts for the topping
also my entry for @quakeroatsuk#showusyouroats competition!!
Went for dinner at @the_greengrocers in norwich at the weekend. they had some amazing veggie/vegan options including this beetroot, cashew cheese and pistachio pesto pizza!!! 😍😍 they also served vegan wine (putting the tipsy in tipsyvegan🍷) and i was so impressed at how accommodating they were for different dietary needs!! 💚
i would definitely recommend a visit if you find yourself in norfolk!! 🙌
Can highly recommend the recipe for "oh em gee veggie burgers" from @ohsheglows 💛
(here's them before they went in the oven)
i cooked them this evening as 3 of my best friends were round for dinner and they went down a treat!! i didn't have any black beans so used kidney beans instead and they worked fine. i served them with a quinoa salad based on @cookieandkate 's favourite quinoa recipe which was a fab accompaniment!! shoutout to my friends for being so wonderful and hilarious 💛🌻
Picked up some late lunch from the new vegan selection at @tescofood - it's so nice to have more vegan friendly options among the salads and sandwiches!! this 'kung fu bowl' was yummy and pretty filling!! i enjoyed the pineapple and sweet chilli dressing that came with it 🍍
would be interested to hear what you guys think of tesco's new wicked kitchen vegan range??
Protein packed breakfast 💪🌱
this is my entry for @laurafruitfairy and @xanjuschx 's #plantproteinparty 💚
i wanted to show how much protein you can squeeze into a vegan breakfast bowl, so here goes!!
- oats (3x the protein of brown rice)
- chia seeds (5g in 2tbsp)
- spinach (5g per cup)
- spirulina powder (4g per tbsp)
- h**p powder (5g per tbsp)
- soy milk (8g per cup)
- peanut butter (4g per tbsp)
- pumpkin seeds (8g in a quarter cup)
- dates - topped with @nutribrex hazelnut, coconut and quinoa granola (quinoa is also a source of protein)
big up to @aldiuk for stocking @funktionalfoods h**p and spirulina powder for this recipe!!! 💚
feel like i should go and lift some weights now or something 🏋️♀️
In an attempt to reduce my plastic waste i've decided to use soap bars instead of bottles of shower gel. i previously used a lemongrass soap from suma which i really loved 💛 i like to try a few different options before i chose a favourite so i headed to @lush and browsed their wonderful selection!! i went for their 'sea vegetable' soap as i figured it would work well with my 'seanik' shampoo bar and was as close as a morning swim in the sea as i was gonna get 🌊 it contains lavender oil, sea salt and seaweed meaning the soap has antiseptic and exfoliating qualities. 💙💚
i am always keen to buy lush products as they support the work of the refugee community kitchen where i currently volunteer!! 💙
Haven't done a breakfast bowl in ages!!
this one tasted really good 💚
spinach, banana, dates, oats wheatgrass, milled flaxseed, coconut milk. topped with sesame seeds!! .
milled flaxseed is a great plant-based source of omega 3, don't let people tell you you can only get it from eating fish!!! 🐟
We spent saturday evening at @wildfoodcafe in covent garden, london and enjoyed some incredible vegan food. i was there with my girlfriend so we ordered two mains and two desserts to share and the plates came one at a time so it felt like we were having a 4 course meal! we had (in order of the photos): pear and hibiscus cheesecake; salted caramel chia pudding; wabi-sabi kale salad; and a venus bowl. i think the cheesecake was my favourite 💖
the food was insanely good and i would highly recommend a visit!!
Went for lunch at @saltwaterbeachcafe where i'm determined to try all their vegan options! they are one of the only places in south east essex that provide a selection of vegan options and it's on the seafront which is one of my favourite places!! 💙 today i went for their vegan burger with aubergine and very much enjoyed it!! would certainly recommend this lil seafront spot!!! 🌴
Spotted a recipe on @wearesovegan for beetroot falafel and had to make some myself!! i didn't have any breadcrumbs so they werent as firm as usual but they tasted great!! i popped them in a pitta with some houmous, tomato, cucumber and avocado 🍅🥑
Enjoyed a new years day roast at @masonandcoeast - their vegan option is basically all the sides!! you go up and serve yourself (and you can go up for seconds) so we went all out on the roast potatoes 👌🌟 they also had some roasted carrots and beetroot and some banging mustard greens (also the salsa verde was fab💚). a main vegan option such as a nut roast would have made it perfect but i still really enjoyed my meal! it was just what we needed after the new year celebrations the night before!
My girlfriend is coming down with a cold so this morning we blended up a super smoothie to try and see it off!
- 1 banana
- handful of blueberries
- 2 satsumas
- handful of spinach
- a few dates
- green spirulina
- dash of vanilla essence
- coconut milk
- frozen smoothie mix (orange, butternut squash, kiwi and mango) - sesame seeds
hopefully it'll sort us out in time for nye celebrations this evening 🌟💃
Back from three months volunteering in calais. feeling physically and emotionally exhausted.
my brother got me a wonderful set of eco beauty goods for christmas including this @lush bathbomb which provided some much needed head space and chill out time 💙
Went to a fantastic vegan restaurant in gent (belgium) called le botaniste. i loved their theme of food being medicine and nourishing your body through a wholesome, plant based diet 💚 i built my own bowl of goodness which included a peanut butter coconut cream curry 👌
would definitely recommend to any travelling vegan who finds themself in the city, which is so beautiful by the way!
Finally got my hands on a bamboo toothbrush!! discovered @zuboo_eco on etsy and their incredible offer of 5 toothbrushes for £10 🌟 so much plastic is sent to landfill from hygiene and beauty products but these lil beauties are compostable and recyclable!! 💚
