What I Ate Today!

Breakfast This morning I made beans, scrambled egg and avocado on toast, topped off with a soy milk tea. For the scrambled egg, I used the egg replacer that I received in this month’s vegan box, with some nutritional yeast, pepper and spinach. Snack  At around midday, I had half a watermelon and a matcha…read more

The Vegan Kind: August

It was another double whammy this month, with both the lifestyle and cosmetic boxes turning up on my doorstep! Lifestyle Box First up in the food box were these pineapple sweets from Candy Kittens, the company ran by Made In Chelsea’s Jamie Laing. This is their first vegan product, and it is so good! Definitely…read more

Vegan Gyoza (Japanese Pan-Fried Dumplings)

After trying gyoza for the first time at Wildebeest in Falmouth, they have been on my mind as they are delicious, yet it wasn’t until today I decided to give them a try. Firstly, I made the dumpling wrapper. It is super simple, as I just combined around 2 cups of flour with half a…read more

The Vegan Kind: July 

Unlike last month, I actually managed to take pictures of everything before devouring all of the delicious items, so I can finally do another vegan kind post!  This month, 10p from each box went to Hessilhead Rescue Centre, which cares for Scotland’s sick and injured wildlife, and has been doing so for over 25 years. …read more

What I Ate Today

Breakfast: After a bowl of cereal (kinda boring so no picture needed) I still fancied something sweet. I made some chocolate banana ‘nice cream’ with a dark chocolate soya pudding and around 3 frozen bananas. I topped with raspberries and coconut, and it was amazing! Dinner: We decided to go out for dinner, so we…read more

Potluck Dinners!

I have just returned from my first, and definitely not my last vegan potluck dinner! For those of you unfamiliar about what this is, it’s basically a bunch of people who all bring their own dishes for everyone to share, sort of like a big communal picnic I guess. They are a great idea as…read more

Saturday Brunch

Today we tried out a new vegan restaurant in Newquay, The Green HeART cafe, which only re-opened a few weeks ago. It’s a really cool setting, with lots of art for sale on the walls, cool furniture, games and chilled music. The menus were amazing, with lots of veggie and vegan choices, as well as…read more

Loaded Sweet Potato Skins

I’m sure you’ve all seen potato skins loaded with bacon, cheese and all sorts of other meat and dairy products, so we decided to come up with a healthier, vegan version that is completely guilt free, but also completely scrumptious! Cut sweet potato in half and bake for around half and hour at around 220…read more

Ohana, Newquay (AKA a vegan’s dream)

If you are ever in Newquay, you MUST visit Ohana. Not only does it boast spectacular views over a beautiful beach, it also serves amazing food and drinks for both vegans and non-vegans. Not only this, but the cafe is super cute, plays great music and the staff are insanely friendly! Ohana is also great…read more

The Vegan Kind: April

As always, April’s box does not disappoint! My personal favourite this month was the Vegolino praline chocolates (of course) which taste exactly like Guylian Seashell chocolates, but without any of the nasties. There are not enough words in the English language to describe how good these things are. Seriously. They are a new release so…read more
