Good morning friends, I hope that you're well. It's nearing the end of the year, which seems crazy. It feels like we have lost a few months somewhere along the way and 2020 has been a year like no other. I can't say I'm sad about this year ending but at the same time, I'm holding onto the good memories and connections I made despite the circumstances in which we found ourselves. Before I begin this blog post I want to stress that I'm not a nutritionist, nor an expert in supplements. This is...

Good day lovely friends... Today is a good day for a good day and a good day to talk all things plant myyyylk aka vegan mylk. It's spelled with a 'y' because of a legality, which means the word "milk" can't be used to refer to plant beverages within the European Union. The words 'milk', 'cheese', 'yoghurt' and 'butter' are reserved for animal products, with a few exceptions including 'peanut butter' and 'coconut milk'. I'm going to cover two things briefly in this post. The first is a little...

Hello everyone, and welcome to the August blog post. Something I learned about August is that it's apparently Happiness Happens Month, which is a whole month dedicated to celebrating what makes you happy. This is based on the fact that happiness is unlimited and contagious and sharing your happiness can bring joy to others. I don't know about you but I like the idea of sharing things that make me happy to help others!! It may be the final week of August but I am 100% behind anything to help...

I am so excited to share this post as I've LOVED trying out these new pestos and tapenades from Shore Seaweed Company. They immediately appealed to me because I love food that's flavourful and can quickly brighten up a dish and make cooking easy peasy for everyone, whether you're a keen home chef or not. Anyone who's been around a while will know I love nothing more than trying and sharing new foods I love. I set myself some really specific values when I started being approached by brands. I...

Hello everyone. I have missed you!! I didn't write a blog entry for June and it is now the middle of July but I'm about to spoil you with two in close succession! To be honest, I felt overwhelmed and underwhelmed at the same time. I felt overwhelmed with all the content I was putting out and I felt underwhelmed with what I could say differently here, that I haven't said elsewhere.

Happy May everyone, It is officially the month of asparagus and the last month of Spring. I'm a little late with my post this month but I hope it's something you'll find interesting. To give you a little insight into the topic I thought I'd share a few things I've been up to that led to the subject of this post. It's been a while since I wrote anything related to my attempt to live a more sustainable lifestyle. Over the past year I've gradually tried to find ways to integrate various elements...

"Tough times never last but tough people do" (Robert Schuller). Hi everyone and welcome to an April update. It's the fourth month of the calendar year and the month we associate with Spring in the Northern Hemisphere. It's the month of yellow daffodils, chocolate eggs and hot cross buns. However, this year April feels very different. The daffodils, eggs and hot cross buns are all the same but the community in which we enjoy them has changed. This year we won't be visiting parents and...

Welcome to March everyone!! It's really starting to feel like Spring with longer days and more light in the mornings, which means more early morning runs for me. In this Blog post I'm going to talk all things oats and why I think runners should include these in their pre and post run fuel kit. I hope to inspire other runners to create their own nutritious and energy rich running fuel, to sustain longer runs, without spending a fortune on gels, protein bars and powders. I'll be sharing my...

Hello February, the second month of the year with 28 days clear and 29 each leap year!! It's hard to believe sitting here in freezing Scotland that in the Southern Hemisphere February is a summer month the equivalent of August. The month is named for the Latin word februum which means purification. I'm not sure if this is connected with purification or any of the above but February is also the month of love and I can guarantee you will love these chocolatey delight recipes I've created using my...
Vegan journey · 07. January 2020
Hello everyone and Happy New Year. It's officially a new decade, which is very exciting! I mean, I get excited at the start of a new week so can you imagine my excitement at the start of a decade? Having not long returned from a trip to the Outer Hebrides for New Year, it got me thinking about my routine for traveling and eating a plant-based diet, especially in places where there are fewer plant based options available. It's also Veganuary and I'm signed up and 100% committed to ensuring my...
