Quinoa Granola

Hi all! It’s been a while. I’ve been dealing with some personal issues, but I’ve still been cooking up a storm in the kitchen and testing out some new recipes.   Today I bring you a quinoa granola recipe, which is pretty delicious if I do say so myself. I love granola, but it can […]

A Vegan Uses… Haircare

I love my hair. It is one of my favourite features. It’s mainly my natural colour now, but I’ve put it through a lot in the past. It’s been bleached and dyed about 13 different colours. Depending on what mood it’s in, it can be wavy, straight or slightly curly. Sometimes all three at once! […]

A Vegan Thinks… About Honey

One of the most common questions I get regarding veganism is why honey isn’t considered a vegan product. This question is normally asked genuinely, not in the vein of ‘where do you get your protein from’ or ‘what about plants feelings’, and I understand why people ask it. It’s not immediately obvious to many why […]

A Vegan Eats… Wicked Kitchen

Wicked Kitchen is a range of vegan meals created by Derek Sarno and sold through Tesco. There is a large selection of meals to choose from, ranging from ready meals, pizzas, sandwiches and salads. I have tried the following from the range:   Teriyaki Noodles BBQ Butternut Mac Caponata Pizza BBQ Mushroom Pizza Rainbow Curry […]

A Vegan Thinks… About Feminism

There are two things I will really get passionate about. Veganism and feminism. These things are not mutually exclusive of each other. I am vegan for many reasons. I am vegan because I care about animal rights. I am vegan because I care about the environment. I am vegan because I am a feminist.   […]

A Vegan Eats… Gingerbread Men

Gingerbread Men are one of my favourite Christmas treats. Ginger is one of my favourite flavours, and I think Gingerbread Men go down a treat all year round. For this recipe, I took inspiration from my Mum’s favourite and most well loved recipe book, the Good Housing cookbook from the early 1980’s. She uses this […]

A Vegan Eats… Christmas Candy Cane Cake

I love Christmas, I love the decorations, I love Christmas trees, I love cheesy films. I even have a collection of Christmas jumpers, including a vegan one (of course). There is one thing I don’t love, and that’s dried fruit, so traditional Christmas desserts are not something I enjoy. Christmas pudding, Christmas Cake and Mince […]

A Vegan Does… Berlin

Oh Berlin, how I love you.     Let’s just say that I was in desperate need of a holiday, and some time off work. So, my good friend Yvette and I took a few days off work, and had a long weekend break in Berlin. To say we loved it was an understatement. Three […]

A Vegan Uses… Vitamins

Vitamins can be a controversial subject in the vegan community. There are people who don’t want to take supplements, or admit that vegans should take supplements. I understand this, vegans don’t want to give meat eaters the satisfaction of being able to argue that there are flaws in a vegan diet. All vegans have experienced […]

A Vegan Wears… Trainers

I have been a junk food vegan from the day after I became vegan, over 9 years ago. For that one first day I was a healthy vegan, but I discovered vegan junk food pretty quickly. However, I have also realised that it’s about time I started taking my health far more seriously. I guess […]
