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...

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...

We are officially on the Christmas count down, with less than a week until big Saint Nick will be on his way down our chimmneys full of mince pies and sherry. I've always been a last minute larry when it comes to gifts because I worry so much about getting it right. I'm also passionate about making sure I gift responsibly, purchasing sustainable and environmentally friendly items that people will actually use and love. Last year I created a cruelty-free gift guide which you can read here and...

Do you want to join the positive change club? As soon as I heard such a thing existed I wanted in! I first heard about Vevolution at the start of this year. I think it was something I'd read on Instagram and I somehow linked to their YouTube channel and started watching videos from the previous event. I was hooked! Vevolution is the UK's leading plant-powered positive change festival, which took place in London on Saturday 16th November. I was there and ready for a day of learning. This blog is...

Hello November and welcome to my Blog, It's officially the penultimate month of, what has felt like, the fastest passing year of my life. November is a month with lots of reasons to celebrate. It's already been World Vegan Day, National Candy Day, Hug a Bear Day and we still have Homemade Bread Day, World Kindness Day, Cook Something Bold Day.

What else says winter if it's not a warm, sticky, sweet pudding?! Hands up if you love bread and butter pudding? What does it remind you of? For me it's school lunches, which I loved at primary school, when I wasn't eating peanut butter and jam sandwiches in a packed lunch. I always chose to have seconds of pudding when I had school lunches, with lashings of custard obviously. I was recently asked to review some delicious, healthy treats made by a company called My Raw Joy, based in Prague. As...

Well hello my friends, Here we are in another new month... wow wow wow.. How did it get to October and the leaves are turning brown and falling down?!! This month's blog post is all about weaning. This isn't something i've shared much about on here, partly because I don't feel qualified to do so and partly because I'm not sure if it 's of interest. However, as this space has always been partly journal, part connecting and sharing, I've decided I want to talk about our weaning journey. Maybe...
