I cannot believe it has taken me so long to visit Amico Bio – The first Vegetarian, organic, Italian restaurant in London. I certainly will not wait long before revisiting this great restaurant!
Vegan culture and cruelty free lifestyle
I’m a very happy Vegan, today I visited a fantastic Vegan bakery selling all the Vegan necessities .. cookies, cakes and coffee :) Its called Cookies and Scream and its located at Camden Lock Place, inside Dingwalls Gallery.
My love affair with Sweetbird syrups started a long time ago. It began with Amaretto flavoured syrup, in coffee, cakes, on Ice cream, I used this syrup in everything! The Sweetbird syrup range is growing and I’m writing to let you know about their NEW Iced Tea Flavoured Syrups.
I was lucky to receive this lovely Lush gift box a couple of weeks ago. I hadn’t tried most of the products within it before, (because I’m a creature of habit,) I stick to what I know and love. The gifts title couldn’t be more fitting – Don’t knock it ’til you’ve tried it, I have now discovered some true Lush gems that I wouldn’t have even considered before and now I’m keen to try anything from Lush!
My husband discovered that Oxford has a Vegetarian pub about a year ago and this week we decided to take a day trip to Oxford to go and visit it. The Gardeners Arms is number 39 on Plantation Road in Jericho, it’s a bit less than half an hours walk from Oxford railway station. The Gardeners Arms Oxford.
I’ve never really liked Morrisons the supermarket.The check out queues always seem to back up into the aisles, the shop in general seems higgledy piggledy. And it’s all just a bit too stressful for me. However after a recent shopping trip I have found a reason to love Morrisons, (like so many of you do :-P) I discovered in their ‘free from’ aisle a box of luxury Vegan chocolates called- Caramel Choices.
Are you Veggie, Vegan or vegan-curious and will you be in London on 25th August? If you are this Vegan fete may interest you. http://www.vegancampaigns.org.uk/fete/activities.html
I have wanted to re-create Millionaire’s Shortbread for some time. I’ve stumbled across many recipes and I’ve tried a few, using different techniques and different dairy alternatives but they’ve just not been quite right. Until now, finally I’ve cracked it, so here I am sharing my recipe with you all. It’s a rich Vegan experience but don’t worry, you don’t have to be a Vegan millionaire to try this recipe, it just makes you feel like one!
An update on Cruelty Free Cleaning article I posted last month.
I’m so excited to let you all know that Moo Free have launched a new range of scrummy rice milk chocolate bars, mini moos. Bite size packs, with three individually wrapped bars, great for carrying around, for when the Vegan chocolate cravings get you! They come in three varieties, Hammy’s Original, (the moo free we know and love,) Scrummy Hunny-comb, (readers of my blog will know that I just cannot resist Honeycomb,) and Juicy Sultana, (for the fruit fans out there.) They are available online and also on the UK high street.
