The Kitchen Essentials You Need To Create Healthy Vegan Recipes

I think the hardest part of going vegan was just being completely unprepared. I struggled a lot at the start and I made it harder than it had to be, and I know a lot of people have done the same. Looking back now, there are a million things I would do differently, and getting my kitchen set up with gadgets and tools that I need would be my first priority. I’m not saying you should go out and buy every single one of these products, but I am saying that having a few of these lying around in your kitchen is going to make your vegan journey a hell of a lot easier, because it has done for me. And…

How To Successfully Transition Into Veganism The Easy Way

As if it’s 2019 already… does anyone else feel like last year went waaaay too quickly? According to the internet (the most reliable source ever), 2019 is going to be “the year of veganism”, which is amazing because it means more vegan options, more online vegan friends & more of an impact on the world – YAS! So to start the new year off, I wanted to write a post to help the newbies in 2019 successfully transition to veganism. I’ve said before that you can’t turn some people vegan, no matter how much you back up your argument. I can’t tell you the amount of times I’ve put so much effort into explaining facts to my family members about…

30+ Vegan Christmas Gifts That Are Guaranteed To Impress

It’s that time of year again, December is here! A time for panicking about what presents to buy your family/friends, overspending & eating way too much! And is it just me… Or did this year go soooooo quickly? We’ll soon be in 2019… And that is just a scary thought. But first, Christmas is on the way, and since so many people have made the transition to veganism this year (2018 has been the year of veganism after all), it’s only natural that people will be on the look out for vegan Christmas presents. And although every vegan would love a cute puppy for Christmas this year, we’ve got to be realistic (and budget friendly – am I right?). But…

This Is Why You Need To Start Meal Prepping If You’re Struggling To Go Vegan

Have you ever had that 5/6 o’clock feeling when you’re finally done for the day, you’re hungry and you just want to eat anything in sight? Yup I think we’ve all been there. When you’re hungry AF, the quickest thing to eat is a microwave meal or snacks. But if you’re trying to eat healthy or achieve a health goal (losing weight for example) then unhealthy & processed food isn’t the best option. And whether you’re vegan or not, you’re not going to hit any of your daily nutrition values eating crap. Over the years I’ve found that a lot of yummy (& healthy) vegan meals can be planned & prepped in advance to make it super easy for you…

37 Homely Vegan Recipes That Will Make You Excited For Autumn

Now I know I’m not the only person who absolutely loves it this time of the year. Autumn is finally here & who doesn’t love walking through the park when the trees become a lovely orange colour & the leaves are crunchy on the floor. Not to mention, Halloween is a few weeks away & it gives me an excuse to put ‘pumpkin’ into every recipe. Oh, and if you’re a big fan of Starbucks, then you might be aware that the pumpkin spice syrup they use has milk in it (boooo)! BUT there is a secret vegan option, so if you’re looking for your pumpkin fix this Autumn, then ask for a soy/almond milk dolce cinnamon latte with no…

23 Crazy Cheap Vegan Meal Ideas For Saving Money

Regardless of whether you’re vegan or not, you’ve definitely heard other people say before that “eating healthy is expensive”. And veganism is commonly known for being expensive, but that’s just not the case. I’m a frugal gal who loves cooking and eating, but you won’t catch me spending a ton of money on my shopping bill every week. Why? Because vegetables, leafy greens, legumes (beans, lentils, peas), rice, tofu, potatoes, bread & most fruit are cheap as f**k and that’s what I eat every day. I like to try & keep my meals as plant-based as possible because its cheaper, but I do treat myself to the odd meat-substitute, and even then, spending £1.50 for 8 meat-free burgers isn’t going…

How To Cure Your IBS & Heal Your Gut Naturally On A Plant-Based Diet

Did you know you could have IBS & not even be aware of it? A few months ago I was getting really bogged down because I didn’t know why I was experiencing major bloating & stomach pain. So I decided to call my doctors and explain my symptoms of what I thought could be IBS. To cut a long story short, they were fucking useless & couldn’t have pushed me out the door any faster. My doctor didn’t advice me on anything to change diet wise & she didn’t explain what causes IBS or how I can prevent it. But they were happy enough to give me a prescription “to ease the cramping pain”. I’m really fussy about what I put…
