    9 Instagram accounts to follow this World Vegan Day

    Today is World Vegan Day and also marks my eleventh month without eating animals products. I can safely say that going vegan was one of the best things I have ever done – I’m absolutely loving my plant-based lifestyle. Instagram has been like my own personal guide to vegan life this year; I’ve followed some great accounts that have showed me amazing recipes, products and where to shop for my animal-free goodies. So to mark World Vegan Day I thought I’d put together a blog post about my favourite Instagram accounts for those who may not have seen them or may be considering going vegan this month. In fact, cancer…

  • Veganuary: Week 4 – What I’ve learnt

    Well I set out to complete Veganuary and I am very proud to say I did it! More than that, I really enjoyed it. It’s certainly been a learning curve, getting to grips with what you can and can’t eat and I imagine there’s still a great deal I don’t know about. But with January now behind us, I thought I’d put together a short post just to recap on the last four weeks. What I’ve learnt It may just be because so many people are on the Veganuary hype, but there really is a lot of choice out there for meat and dairy free options! Whether eating out or…

  • Veganuary: Week 3 – Doing my bit!

    Firstly, how is it nearly the end of January already! It’s only just begun and the year already feels like it’s flying by. That said, I cannot wait for our adventures to begin in April, so I am happy for time to keep whizzing by until then. It’s been just over three weeks since I began Veganuary. I really truly thought I was going to struggle giving up certain food, but actually I feel great! I feel like a huge sense of guilt has lifted from me, like for the past few weeks I’ve been doing my bit. And like I said, it feels great! Not too many new revelations…

  • Veganuary: Week 2 – I miss cheese!

    It’s now been over two weeks of Veganuary and I’m still loving it – but oh my god do I miss cheese! I really thought chocolate would be the hardest thing for me to give up, but I’ve found plenty of sweet treats to replace this, and actually, I just really want some cheese on top of my spaghetti bolognese. But I haven’t caved, I am officially 17 days meat and diary free. I know, I know, I’m still very new to this plant based lifestyle, but I feel like I’m learning something new with each meal. So here’s a quick update on week two of Veganuary and how I’m…

  • Veganuary: Week 1 – I’m surviving!

    My whole life I’ve been told I’m a fussy eater. Perhaps I was when I was younger, but the fact that I still don’t like broccoli apparently means I’m unable to shake that label! But the truth is, I’m not fussy. I love a range of foods. I would say I eat most things and I especially love spicy food. I’d eat curry for every meal if it wasn’t considered a bit weird! But even I’ll admit, the thought of going vegan has always seemed crazy to me. What would I eat?! I love bacon, cheese and chocolate far too much. But for some reason, back in December I decided…
