Tofu, a vegan staple that once baffled me and that I thought was bland and had a funny texture. Now a staple that I always have in my fridge and even make my own fresh tofu at home regularly. Continue reading

Fully Loaded Butternut & Leek Enchiladas

Fully Loaded Butternut & Leek Enchiladas

It’s not often that Rob and I eat out but when we do, one of our favourite places is Las Iguanas, a Latin chain restaurant who we favour for their separate veggie and vegan menu making it so easy to order even though it’s not a vegetarian eatery. The staff are always knowledgeable about vegan menu items and things that can be subbed or left off to make a vegan option out of a standard menu item. Continue reading

Roasted Peach & Vanilla Iced Tea – Sugar Free PLUS a NuNaturals WORLDWIDE GIVEAWAY!


I love peach iced tea. I only discovered it in the last couple of years when I bought a pack of well reduced and out of date Little Miracles Organic Energy Black Tea and Peach. I was hooked and quickly bought more of the cheap bottles. As pure and natural as they are, sweetened only with agave and fruit concentrates, it still packed 90 calories a bottle and I could drink 5 in a day – that’s 450 calories just on liquid. So, I stopped drinking them so regularly and now very rarely get one of I see them. I only ever see them in some health food shops and one particular very off the beaten track petrol station which is a bit random! Continue reading

I love this kind of salad alongside golden baked tofu or a veggie burger, but I most love this oneย as a zingy contrast to a stir fry or noodle dish. Continue reading
