What's been happening? Well, a lot personally. Since 2017 I embarked on a new career in IT at the Houses of Parliament, moved house twice, welcomed three more babies to the family, started a personal writing blog, and wrote two novels. The first ended up being a "burner novel", as in, the book you write that… Continue reading Recipe: Sticky Udon Noodles!
All the best vegan places to eat in London, and a few homemade dishes, too.
A quick and easy vegan recipe, perfect for the October/fall season. Butternut squash and sweet potato soup! An autumn favourite.
Howdy! It's been ages. I've moved house, got a job, finished writing a novel that I've been working on for three years and have started to submit it to literary agents. My husband finished his plumbing course and is finishing up his apprenticeship. A lot's been happening! My eating has got much better since the… Continue reading Cashew Mac & Cheese
Somehow, 2017 has left us. Both personally and globally, it was a whirlwind of a year. Sometimes New Years can be a depressing time as we look back at what we wanted to achieve in the January before and realise that many of those dreams remained unrealised, but actually, a new year is a great… Continue reading Happy New Year!

I suppose being able to indulge is a luxury that a lot of people miss when they go vegan, because snacks and sweets either don't taste very good, or are too hard to… Continue reading Friday Basket: Vegan Chocolate
So this is where things took a bad turn in my diet, and I began snacking more extensively during the day. I only took one photo of the type of things I ate, because at the time I knew that I wanted to overcome the habit, and I wanted photo evidence to look back on in… Continue reading What have I been eating? September-October 2017
July-August was a pretty good time for me diet-wise. This was during massage college days, so I had to travel to central London three days a week during rush hour. Our classroom/parlour was hot, so at one point I was drinking 3 litres of water a day. For breakfast, I either had a sandwich from… Continue reading What have I been eating? July-August 2017
I don't even know where to start, so let's take it back to February 2017... I was working as a housing support worker. Great job, but very low-paid. There is also difficulty in the support worker field to really progress and go anywhere, as people tend to stay in their organisations for several years. I… Continue reading I’m back! Where have I been? On sadness and binging…
This isn't the first jackfruit recipe I've shared here, but I recently realised that I'm yet to share this very popular vegan dish with you. I think everyone has their own take on BBQ jackfruit, which is supposed to simulate pulled pork. I've never had actual pulled pork, even before giving up meat, but from… Continue reading BBQ Jackfruit
