Vegan friendly chocolate

Vegan friendly chocolate

Vegan friendly chocolate. There seems to be a misconception that when you turn vegan you suddenly stop eating chocolate; this is not the case. There are many brands of chocolate offering dairy free options which don’t have to come from the “free from” section. If you like dark chocolate then you will find the transition easy. If you don’t enjoy dark chocolate it could take a while to make the transition however over time you will get used to the taste and start…

Cuppa Tea and a Biscuit?

Cuppa Tea and a Biscuit?

Cuppa Tea and a Biscuit anyone? I mean, who doesn’t love a cuppa tea and a biscuit?! I try to make transitioning into a plant based diet easy for everyone and I understand that not all of us have time to make our own alternatives. Making plant based biscuits by hand are definitely a healthier alternative to shop bought, but I know this isn’t convenient for everyone. As a result I have accumulated a bunch of photographs for you for some shop bought biscuits…

Let’s talk cheese

Let’s talk cheese

Let’s talk cheese. When it comes to transitioning to a vegan diet or simply going dairy free, the main difficulty people find is giving up cheese.

Now can you see why cheese…

Pear in oats is something that isn’t knew but it is such a nice subtle sweetness to the oats and as they are a soft…

Cashew Cream

Cashew Cream

Hello Hello 🙂 I’ve been making batches of raw vegan carrot cake cupcakes recently because it is just what I fancied and sometimes I fancy something sweet but not chocolate? For the cream topping I used this recipe and it is so delicious and moreish! Cashew nuts are one of the most versatile wonder foods of a vegan diet and I absolutely love them. Cashew nuts have a softer texture than most nuts and a slightly sweet taste which make…

Creamy Sweet Potato Soup

Creamy Sweet Potato Soup

With the grey and wet weather we have been having the past few days I thought it would be appropriate to share a warming, creamy sweet potato soup recipe with you all, because lets be honest, days like these just call for a big bowl of hot soup and chunky freshly baked bread. Soup is such a simple food but so satisfying. It is also one of the easiest foods to make out there, is perfect for getting in lots of veggies and…
