I know some people want to try Veganuary and there are many who are just wondering how it might be going vegan. We’ve been vegan for almost two years now and flexitarians for another year and a half before that, so if you need some advice, here’s mine. 1. Your heart has to be in the right place – Find your WHY What’s your motivation? The reason behind anything you do determines if you’re going to be successful or not. There are people who do it for health (plant-based diets were proven to be very efficient in heart-related problems) or people like us, who do it for the animalsRead More →

Fried rice is a fantastic dish for any times where you feel like something deliciously tasty, but you don’t want to spend hours in the kitchen. Better still, it is one of the easiest dishes to make vegan, as you definitely don’t need meat to make a mouthwatering fried rice. ThatRead More →

This is a guest post written by Sarah from The Sleep Advisor.  Sleep deprivation is a massive problem in today’s fast-paced world. We switch off the light but can’t seem to switch off the whirlwind of thoughts, worries and anxieties flying around our minds. What is meant to be a relaxing time, a time for your body to rest and your mind to become calm, becomes quite the opposite. Your thoughts start churning, your mind keeps racing and you find yourself far from Sleepytown. The result? Well, lots of problems, really. From obesity to heart disease, diabetes to depression – poor quality sleep has theRead More →

This year in March we took a big step – moved to the countryside, in a proper grown-up home, to get away from the noise, crowds and stress of London, if only for a few hours a day. We didn’t plan for this initially, but while on a walk with the dogs, we saw an ad that some allotment plots are available for hire. The price per year is almost nothing, so we immediately imagined ourselves eating and bathing ourselves in salads and tomatoes. It was like a vegan dream. The process We called the council and received by email the plan of the allotmentRead More →

A lot of people think that it’s too late for them to make changes to their lives and believe they will just have to live with the regret. But it’s never too late if you want to step up and improve your health. And a lot of people end up in the best health they have ever been. But if you do want to make a difference, it’s time to do it now. After all, so many people say they will make changes tomorrow. But then another bunch of excuses arrive. Here’s why you need to make changes to your life today. You could live a longer lifeRead More →

Since we went vegan, going out to eat is not as straightforward as before. We either do some research beforehand and have a proper meal or go to the first restaurant we can find and have chips with some chips on the side (it doesn’t sound too bad, does it?!). We may also get lucky and find cafes with vegan food and desserts, especially the ones in Shoreditch or central London. And a piece of advice: unless the menu items are clearly marked as vegan, ask. I was surprised a few times by things that looked vegan but contained cheese. If you’re in the sameRead More →

A few weeks ago I received a trial pack of Omni Superfood to try out and review. I’m usually reluctant when it comes to products labeled “superfood”, but why not give it a go? The product has 2 versions, male and female, so of course I got the one designed for women. Why use supplements? You know we always promote a healthy diet, rich in fresh fruit and vegetables, wholegrains, nuts and seeds and healthy fats. And of course exercise, for both your body and your mind. But that doesn’t always happen as planned, we don’t eat enough of the good stuff, some minerals areRead More →

“What do you eat?” It’s a question we get a lot, and it’s hard to answer, we usually just say “I don’t know, many things. Almost everything except animal products”. So I sat down and made a list to give you an idea of what we have in the kitchen at almost any given time. But it’s not just what we eat, but also the frequency. Yes, I eat sweet potato but only about once a month. I have an avocado a week. But I eat nuts almost every day. Vegan Staple Foods.
