Mum’s cobblestone chilli

I remember eating cobblestone chilli I was a kiddilywink, so called mum for the recipe and tried my own vegan version (which mum makes too now!). It’s pretty simple and carb-tastic, so particularly good if you are training and carb loading. Also a lovely hearty meal for your Halloween or bonfire night party (don’t forget…

I’m running for their lives

If you’re re an animal lover, there may be no limit to your empathy for animals subjected to terrible situations at the hands of humans. When you get to personally know animals affected, their plight becomes all the more real. That’s why I’m running to raise money for the José and Liso Anti Poaching Fund…

Two weddings and a vegan

One of the great advantages of gathering (or converting!) veggie friends is if they decide to get married and have a meat free wedding! Oh the joy of not having to see a shard of bone from a lambs leg out of the corner of your eye or watch people guzzling liver pate. The niggily…

Don’t get where vegans are coming from? Watch Carnage! 

It can be hard to make the subject of veganism funny to both vegans and non-vegans, but Simon Amstell seems to have done it. It turns out that the recipe includes a little bit of piss taking out of everyone, including vegans (stopping others from doing it!) whilst giving you a vegan’s eye view of…

9 years of veganism and the little soul who started my journey

Every vegan has their individual transition story. It’s a journey which takes some people weeks, some months and some years. It took me 6 years to go from pescitatian, through stages of cutting out more and more animal products as I digested information and connected to how animals suffer for our use. 9 years ago…
