Las Iguanas is one of my favourite restaurants. They were the first mainstream eatery I went to that had a separate vegan/vegetarian menu. For those who don't know, Las Iguanas is a South American-inspired restaurant chain; they sell everything from quesadillas to fajitas, and they're roughly the same price as Nando's. The first time I… Continue reading Coconut Curry
It is equally amazing and frustrating to find out that a food item which is a regular purchase, can actually be made at home for a fraction of the price. Normally, flapjacks cost about £1 each, or sometimes you can get a box of flapjack bites on offer at various supermarkets for £1 or so.… Continue reading Friday Basket: Vegan Apple Flapjack Recipe

When I turned vegan, I just found soy milk too strange as a taste, and avoided cereal in general for quite a while. Then, as veganism… Continue reading Cashew Milk Recipe
On Thursday I went to TK Maxx in New Cross to get some gym wear. Thursday is when I go for a workout session with TBM Fitness in Peckham. It can be very intense but very rewarding, and it's my first time really going to a proper exercise class. As always, when I got to… Continue reading Mid-spring Mini-haul
Exciting vegan cooking requires lots of imagination. I've always wondered: who was the first person to try this thing, and realise it was good to eat? I'm still getting over the whole Aquafaba craze: who would have thought you can make macaroons out of chickpea water? Jackfruit is another discovery that blows my mind: I knew… Continue reading Teriyaki Jackfruit
