Love Food, Trust Food. Simplified Food Labelling…

I’ve talked before about how reading labels can be challenging as a vegan. Besides just looking for those sneaky animal ingredients, it can be difficult to work out if something is actually healthy or not.

Elderflower Matcha Mocktail Recipe

After all of the snow and the bitter coldness of the last few weeks, signs of Spring are popping up all around. And I don’t know about you, but it’s made me start thinking of cooling, refreshing drinks, and long evenings socialising with friends and family. For those of us who don’t drink, or who…

Ethical Advent Day 7 – Hand Made Gifts

Behind Window 7 of my Ethical Advent Calendar is a focus on a hand-made gift. Something you’ve put a lot of love and effort into. A gift that means more that something purchased from any shop or website. A gift for the minimalist. A gift from someone trying to be a more conscious consumer and…
