I took the train to Newcastle a couple of weeks ago to visit my little sister and see Alan Carr live on his Spexy Beast tour. But as a Vegan I was a little worried about eating out in Newcastle, but we stumbled across a great pub, Bob Trollop’s.
Vegan culture and cruelty free lifestyle
Thanks to veganstore.co.uk stocking go max go foods, ‘Twilight bars’ (vegan alternative to a Mars bar) and lush.co.uk for a lovely bubble bar called ‘Ma bar’ it is possible to have the ultimate vegan mars bar experience.
Just over a week ago we went to London for the day. Whilst walking along Oxford Street we started to feel quite hungry and wasn’t sure where we could get something decent to eat. We happened upon a Lebanese food stall that was serving a Falafel and Houmous sandwich so we gave it a go. We have since recreated this at home. Here’s how:
We recently published our recipe for Home made Houmous and it seems to have proved fairly popular. Heres an example of something you can do with the houmous you’ve already made; great for quick lunches.
When I first made the decision to become a vegan I really thought I would struggle more than I have done. Of course I realised that to a certain extent I would at least be eating healthier, cutting out everyday chocolate bars etc. but I thought I would miss a lot of food more than I do.
I was recently asked this question, So here’s the answer and I’ll warn you it may turn your stomach.
I recently wrote about my discovery of a vegan antiperspirant. Since then I have had a chance to try it out so I thought I’d give it a little review. So, here it goes.
Houmous is so expensive to buy in supermarkets, but is relatively cheap to make at home, plus you can tailor it to your own specific taste. Houmous is a great source of fibre, protein, iron and calcium, it’s super stuff for Vegans.
After a routine blood test, my Doctor tells me I’m folic acid deficient and she believes the cause to be dietary, because I’m Vegan?! Which is insane.
The chances are you are aware of plans to build a mega dairy in Nocton, if not simply google the phrase ‘Nocton Mega Dairy’ and you’ll find a wealth of information on the subject. Frankly this is a disgrace and we can’t sit back and allow this to happen in the UK. I’ve been in touch with Compassion in World Farming and they’ve informed me that there is a couple of steps we can take to oppose this.
