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 in veganism has partially been fuelled by the growth in Instagram.”… Read more

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. My latest interviewee is one of the people I feel I have clicked with most since I started so I’m so excited to share her story with you.… Read more

The Instavegan Interviews – Part 3

Getting to know my favourite vegan Instagram accounts.

Continuing to spread the word about the stories and personalities behind some of Instagram’s best vegan accounts, I spoke to Rachel Greer about her journey and how she’s trying to inspire and encourage others.

The Instavegan Interviews – Part 2

Getting to know my favourite vegan Instagram accounts.

I’m very excited to introduce to you another one of my favourite vegan Instagrammers. This week’s interviewee is Lucy, AKA @vegan_lucy_york, who is one of a handful of people I have discovered on Instagram, then realised they live too far away from me to go out for dinner and drinks with in “real life”.… Read more

The Instavegan Interviews – Part 1

Getting to know my favourite vegan Instagram accounts.

Since embarking on my vegan journey just over a year ago, I have uncovered an entire community of inspirational, funny, creative and interesting people, particularly on my favourite social platform, Instagram. I follow so many brilliant accounts so I thought it was about time I shared some of them with you.… Read more

Recipe – Vegan “Hunter’s Sandwich”

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 that’s about as un-vegan as you can get so I’m naming mine a “Rambler’s Sandwich”.… Read more

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. If I just bought a load of stuff from the supermarket willy-nilly I’d probably be stuck for ideas most days, and would also create a hell of a lot more waste than we currently do (although baby-led weaning does mean that a LOT of food ends up in the food bin or on the floor…perhaps time to invest in a composter, although placing a toddler underneath the high chair helps too).… Read more

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 ones recently, mainly inspired by the lovely Amy Chin (aka Postnatal Plant Power) – she seems to have a knack of creating pinwheels with flavours I LOVE and I even managed to get The Little Food Critic eating mushrooms so let’s all take a moment to thank Amy for that little miracle.… Read more

Recipe – Vegan Chocolate and Banana Oat Muffins


I seem to be posting a lot of recipes at the moment that can double as breakfast and dessert, because who doesn’t love something that goes as well with custard or ice cream as it does with your morning cereal? The great thing about a lot of my vegan recipes is that they’re also refined sugar-free, which means they can also be guilt-free at any time of day and enjoyed by the whole family.… Read more

Recipe – Vegan Vanilla and Strawberry Oaty Pancakes

We’re big fans of pancakes in this house. My husband prefers them savoury but the rest of us like a fruity breakfast pancake (or my yummy chocolate pancakes for a proper treat).

The best thing about pancakes is it’s really easy to adapt them to make them different flavours, and, generally speaking, they’re pretty healthy too.… Read more
