Why The Meat Industry DOES Need To Panic About Instagram And The Rise Of Veganism

An article was published in The Times today, claiming that the meat industry is "fighting back" against the rise of veganism. The Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board say that, apparently, veganism is a fad, a way for young people ("temporary vegans") to show publicly that they are compassionate and ethically aware, and that "the growth … Continue reading Why The Meat Industry DOES Need To Panic About Instagram And The Rise Of Veganism

The Instavegan Interviews – Part 4

Getting to know my favourite vegan Instagram accounts. As I've mentioned before, one of my favourite things about this blogging malarkey is the sense of community amongst like-minded people on social media, and particularly Instagram.

The ULTIMATE baby and toddler holiday packing list

This post contains affiliate links. LISTS LISTS LISTS As I may have mentioned before, I love lists. I love writing them, re-writing them when I've made a mistake (EVERY BLOODY TIME), and crossing things off and feeling all accomplished when everything's done (which, to be clear, is rare). One thing I keep meaning to do … Continue reading The ULTIMATE baby and toddler holiday packing list

A good few years ago some friends invited us over for lunch and made this incredible "squashed" sandwich, filled with layers of meat and vegetables, and I've been thinking for a while that I should try to veganise it. It's traditionally called a Hunter's Sandwich because it was taken out by people on hunts but … Continue reading Recipe – Vegan “Hunter’s Sandwich”

Meal Planner – A Week Of Vegan Breakfasts For The Whole Family (That Even Non-Vegans Will Love)

Since having children, I've found that in order to stop everything spiralling into disarray, I have to be really disciplined with planning ahead, particularly when it comes to mealtimes.

Recipe – Vegan Banana, Pear and Cinnamon Pinwheels

Ah, the pinwheel. A relatively new phenomenon in my life, but they seem to be a bit of a trend at the moment. Essentially they're just sheets of puff pastry, topped with whatever filling you fancy, rolled up and cut into slices - so the possibilities are endless! I've been making a lot of savoury … Continue reading Recipe – Vegan Banana, Pear and Cinnamon Pinwheels

3 Super Powers Everyone Inadvertently Gains When They Have Children

I have to admit, having two young children, I wouldn't generally describe myself as having super powers on an average day - particularly the tantrum-filled days that immediately follow a night of ridiculously broken sleep. However, I read this post by fellow Surrey parenting blogger, Craig Freeman (aka Rambling Dad) yesterday about how, as parents, … Continue reading 3 Super Powers Everyone Inadvertently Gains When They Have Children
