Tofu Breakfast Scramble Recipe (Vegan)

For many people, tofu can seem like a daunting ingredient, and it’s an unfairly misaligned source of protein – mostly because it seems very tasteless on it’s own, or if not cooked in the right way.

Veganuary Special… Busting Vegan Myths

We’re already 3 weeks into Veganuary – and I’d love to know how you’re getting on? Perhaps you’ve spent the month being asked questions from concerned friends and family members, who think that you might not be getting enough protein, or nutrients… or flavour in your diet!

Veganuary… Why Go Vegan?

Happy New Year and Happy Veganuary 2021! A year of 500,000 participants. Wow! I always get so excited to think about all of the new vegans in the making.

World Vegan Day – What does it mean to be vegan?

Walking around and seeing an ever increasing number of ‘Vegan Options Available’ signs outside cafes, bars and restaurants; being able to enter almost any supermarket and find a huge selection of vegan products; and watching as huge multinationals back worldwide bans on animal testing, there certainly is a huge change happening at the moment, and…

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. There are so many naughty snacks out there for vegans now, and if you’re tried to watch your salt, sugar…

Veganism – Nutrition & Self Love

My third post with a Veganuary theme this month, is all about not beating yourself up over slip ups or mistakes. There are also a lot of posts with concerns about symptoms, and nutrition, which are causing some anxiety, so I’m going to shed a bit of light on a few nutrient queries and generally…

B12 and the Vegan Diet

Today, I wanted to address one of the most common questions asked by new vegans taking part in Veganuary. It’s also a question many of us get bombarded with by non-vegans, so it helps to have the right information… Do I need to take a B12 supplement? B12 is produced by bacteria that live naturally…

Vegan Q&A: Is a Vegan Diet Expensive?

It’s wonderful to see so many people taking part in Veganuary and my heart soars when I think of all the new vegans that are being created… What I also notice on my feed during January is a rush of questions, concerns and requests for recommendations, as it can be daunting starting on a new…
