Vegan Garden Loaf with Marmalade Glaze

There are times when you just want something seriously hearty for dinner, and yesterday was one of those days for me, so I went looking for a recipe that just screamed comfort food and I happened upon a fab website called gluten-free goddess and alas, I was hooked. When it comes to cooking, I’m still learning about what flavours go together, what textures work, presentation etc.  I am now at a stage where I can confidently modify recipes to suit my own diet needs, so there might be recipes that didn’t start out vegan or even vegetarian but I’m learning […]

Vegan Quesadillas With Mango Salsa A Taste Sensation

There are times when you’re out on a food shop and you come across something that you want to eat right there and then, well this happened yesterday with the fresh mangoes we spotted in the local fruit market.  The smell of this mango was incredible and I couldn’t wait to us it in our dinner that evening. We went with the holycowvegan.net recipe (an absolute treasure trove of vegan recipes!) and although we tend not to cook the same dish more than once, this might be an exception, so quick and easy and just beautifully tasty! Mushroom and green […]

Delicious Vegan – Wholewheat spaghetti with lemon, rocket, cherry tomatoes, walnuts & almonds

Usually my gym classes are in the mornings but on 2 nights of the week I have an evening class, so it’s always great to get dinner prepared before I go so we don’t end up eating too late at night, yesterday we opted for a delicious pasta dish, just what I needed after my Fight Do Class. This took literally 20 minutes to whip up and there was plenty left over to have for lunch today which was an added bonus. Whole-Wheat Spaghetti with Lemon, Rocket, Cherry Tomatoes, Almonds & Walnuts Recipe (serves 2 main meals & 2 small lunches) […]

Celebrity Vegetarians and Vegans

If you need any inspiration on jumping on the vegan/vegetarian diet then this should give you a heads up. These are just some of the stars I came across in looking for vegans & vegetarians. I had no idea than many of these stars were vegans/vegetarians and I can now see how they manage to keep their good looks and sharp minds, some of these stars are well into their old age, yet look 10, 20 years younger than they are. Betty White is by far my greatest inspiration, look at the women. She’s 90 years old, still acting, whizzing […]

Inspiring Others – Really think about what you eat

We’ve been continuing our education on food and how our diet affects us and to be honest, it’s scary, really scary what I’ve been shoveling down my throat for the past 30 years. You believe, quite rightly too, that the food that is on the shelves at the supermarket are suitable for eating, you would never stop to think that in many of the processed foods out there, so many of them are filled with chemicals and additives that are harmful to our bodies. I remember working 9-5, finishing work and getting into the car to drive home, being stuck in […]

Vegan Nori Rolls – Delicious for lunch

Today I thought I’d do something a bit special for lunch and as I used to be a big fan of sushi before I changed my diet, I thought I’d give the Nori rolls a go (no fish this time of course). I got all the kit, the rolling mat, chopsticks, sushi rice, wasabi, Nori sheets and soy sauce. I have to say though, my nori were a little on the loose side, so I need more practice at actually rolling them a lot tighter so they don’t fall apart, but I’m pleased with my first attempt. So here’s what I […]
