Cancer and a greener life…

This is not meant to be a depressing article in any way and I am by no means a scientist (nor is this article based on anything but my personal thoughts) but I can’t help but question what on earth is going on!? Why is everyone getting cancer? A few years back I didn’t know … Continue reading

Vegan Update: 6 months on

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.

Easy Peasy Mixed Bean Salad Recipe

I’m not sure if my photo does this dish justice but this is a really nutritious recipe that is totally easy to make.
