This is the second post in a series of four, so if you missed the first one, go here to check it out, it also contains a YouTube video in case you prefer the content in that format. In the previous post, I give you a 10-step meal prep guide to avoid overwhelm and common mistakes when batch cooking. If you search online for meal prep, you’re going to see loads of “rice, chicken and broccoli” lunch boxes. I’m here to tell you that it can be better than that. When your lunch is not boring, you’re more likely to enjoy both eating the foodRead More →

How not to die blog post cover

When was the last time you read a book, and something from its content just hit you like a ton of bricks? For me, it happened with two books in the last two weeks, but today I’m only mentioning one: “How not to die” by Dr Michael Greger. Dr Greger is a plant-based physician, and every vegan or health conscious person in the world knows his YouTube channel, NutritionFacts. Every word he says it’s backed up by science and made to sound human with his very particular sense of humour. He gives interviews while walking on his treadmill. For all these and many more, we loveRead More →

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 →
