Brighton; my new home for the next 3/4 years

Well here I am- currently sat in my bedroom, drinking green tea and half watching a documentary about food (what a surprise). I arrived here 4 days ago and already feel settled in. My room isn’t all that special since didn’t get the accomodation I wanted (and neither did most the people in these halls)…

Banananana luvin

Gluten free, vegan, healthy AND delicious banana bread recipe

Melon fruit salad bowl 

  In an attempt to make myself feel better on this seriously miserable day I thought I’d create a fruit salad for my breakfast. Although there isn’t any proven benefits to fruit/vitamin C helping flu, I thought I may as well try and also create a delicious breakfast for myself as I do it… Banana’s…

Being ill = craving Indian fooooood

I haven’t posted recently because I’ve been so busy and haven’t had the time, although I’m not really sure what I’ve actually been doing. I’ve been with my friends almost everyday and last weekend I went to a music festival called Boardmasters which was AMAZING (I’ll write a post on that later). Now I’ve returned…

Sustainable palm oil ?

I usually make my own peanut butter because it’s soooo easy and it’s nice to know all it has is peanuts in, no added oil or salt. I ran out recently and asked mum to buy a natural one in the shop. She came back with a nice looking one- Whole Earth Crunchy Organic Peanut…

Little life post

Being vegan is still going well. Been offered cheese and chocolate and easily said no to both (if you’d said this to me a month ago there would be no chance I’d believe that). Again, I guess it’s still early days but I’m finding this sooo much easier then I ever thought it would be….

Update on vegan attempt #374929472 + quick sushi recipe

So far it’s been 1 week and 3 days since my millionth attempt at veganism (is that a word?) And I’ve managed to stick to it… I haven’t had any cravings yet but I guess it’s still early days. I have noticed myself feeling bloated more? I’m not sure if that’s from changing my diet…

Vegan granola oaty bar slicey things 

I used to make these while I was in Australia and had the use of a thermomix (my favourite thing EVER) but now I’m home and don’t have one I’ve attempted to recreate them… So here goes.  They’re bars of soft, chewy, peanutty deliciousness… I started off soaking a large handful of pitted dates in…

Future ponderings

I left school this time last year, with a defered position accepted at Newcastle Univerisity to study Marketing in September 2016 and a return flight to Australia. About 6 months into my trip I started thinking about my future and why I would want to do in degree that essentially will teach me how to…

Mummabear’s tofu burger

Me and my wonderful mother created a tofu burger recipe for my dinner tonight since there were no vegan burgers at the village fair today. It is very loosely based on Moosewood’s classic tofu burger recipe. Heat some oil (I used coconut oil) in a pan, add the onion and sprinkle with oregano and salt. Cook…

Vegan Phat Phak Ruam

This is a super easy recipe for stir fry vegetables that I learnt on my cookery course in Thailand. You can use any vegetables you wish  (I used carrot, spring onion, tomato and baby corn). I also changed the recipe by removing the oyster and fish sauce but just add a tsp of each if…
