After laying dormant for a couple of years (my blog not me!), I am now back!… and on a mission. My mission being to move towards a plastic-free (and eventually zero-waste) lifestyle. I have been noticing increasingly of late that I have been emptying out our small kitchen bin out to the outside bin on… Read More The Awakening
I’m not sure if my photo does this dish justice but this is a really nutritious recipe that is totally easy to make.

When I was in my late-teens to early twenties I was a sun-worshipper extraordinaire! I was of the “20 minutes on the front, 20 minutes on the back” brigade and one summer I even remember oiling myself up with Hawaiian Tropic – something like factor 2!! The horror!

I found a recipe for… Read More Yummy Vegan Mince Pies
Is it me or did the last three weeks of term D…R…A…G! For some reason, which is quite unlike me, I felt totally desperate for school to end. Even the kids were okay until this week but I’ve been feeling fidgety for the last three weeks. You know that feeling when you’re running on empty… Read More The final push…and school’s out!!
It’s been six months since I made the transition from being vegetarian to being vegan and it was the best decision I EVER made. Every day is part of a learning curve for me. Making a solid transition to veganism has involved really trying to become informed about the farming industry and what this entails. The knowledge… Read More Vegan Update: 6 months on
So I have FINALLY taken the plunge head first into vegan life and I feel AMAZING!!
