A Very Veggie Christmas 2017

Christmas 2017

After sharing our Christmas meals with you in 20162015, and 2014, it’s time again for another festive round-up. Christmas 2017 actually came in two parts, as J was off to Australia to be a groomsman at a friend’s wedding – so we decided to have our own mini-Christmas in mid-December. read more


Food for Braces Guide

Food For Braces Guide

I’ve had my lovely adult braces in for four months now, so it seems like time to share what I’ve learned about food for braces. I read a lot before I had them put in about what not to eat, but I didn’t read a lot about what I could eat. There wasn’t much explanation of the logic behind it, either. read more

Black Bean Dip Burritos

This week’s recipe is a little late to give you all time to recover from Christmas, and these black bean dip burritos might be just what you need as an antidote to the festive menu. They’re a little bit off the beaten track as we’re actually making a dip, but it also works as a fantastic burrito filling. read more


Chik’n Not So Chik’n Sandwich

Chik'n Not So Chik'n

We were in London recently and stopped off at Chik’n to try their Not So Chik’n sandwich (or a burger, to you and me). We found them on Baker Street, not far from the tube, and got our orders in.

It’s very much a fast food experience in that you place an order at the till, stand and wait for your food to come out, and then sit and eat or take it away. However, I did find the staff very attentive, offering to bring the tray over for us and checking that everything was fine with our order.  read more

Pear French Toasts

This week our recipe is oh-so-indulgent pear French toasts, drenched in sweetness and perfect for special occasions. If you ate these every day you’d probably end up diabetic, but for a festive treat, they certainly do the trick.

We had these for an early lunch/late brunch and even then the sweetness was very heavy, so if you don’t have a sweet tooth, they probably won’t be too your liking. But if you’re the type to pour sugar over your cereal, they will go down a storm. read more


Vegan Ribs: Lettices vs The Lady Luck

Lettices Vegan Ribs

It’s time for a new feature: a battle of the brands, with vegan ribs in the spotlight. We’ve been trying vegan ribs for a while now and have come to find two of the best – but how do they match up, and which is better? Let’s find out… read more

Mince Pie Chocolate Christmas Tree

This week we tried something a little different: a Christmas tree made from mince pie filling and covered in melted green chocolate, because why not? It’s a little messy and we’re definitely not dessert experts, but this is something you can elevate and bring your own flair to, especially if you’re already a master at cake decorating! read more
