I'll be taking part in VeganMoFo 2019!

I'm going to be taking part in Vegan Month of Food (Vegan MoFo) again this year! My plan is to try and follow the daily prompts and although I almost certainly won't manage every day, to post something on as many days as possible. The idea is to write as much as possible about vegan food throughout the month and to show what vegan eating and a vegan lifestyle is really all about.

I'll also be taking part on Twitter and Instagram if social media is more your thing! #VeganMoFo19 #VeganMoFo

Are you taking part in Vegan MoFo this year? If so, what will you be writing about - following the prompts, a theme of your own or something else entirely? Let me know in the comments below.


A trip to New York City, part 3

As always with any of my blog posts, you can click on any of the photos to enlarge.

This is part three of my series about my trip earlier this year to New York City. Click on the links in the text to read parts one and two.

Back in February I visited New York City and managed to write up posts one and two about it in March, but then life caught up with me so I've been a bit delayed getting this final post up.

Next on my trip I continued to make use of my New York Pass as I made a visit to the New York Historical Society, which despite being a small museum had some really interesting exhibitions, including a permanent display of Tiffany lamps and a temporary exhibition of work by Betye Saar.

A trip to New York City, part 2

As always with any of my blog posts, you can click on any of the photos to enlarge.

This is part two of my series about my recent trip to New York City. To read part one, just click here.

On day two of our visit to New York, Paul had the day off from work so we headed straight to the all-vegan Champs Diner in Brooklyn that morning which had been highly recommended to us by several people and we were not disappointed! On the left is the Benedict with what Americans call hash browns (somewhat different to what we think of over here!) and on the right is the Breakfast Slam. Both were exceptionally good!

A trip to New York City, part 1

Last month I visited New York City for my first trip ever to the city and I had an amazing time! Being February it was still pretty cold outside, so I made the most of enjoying the plethora of museums and art galleries in the city over the five days I was there, not to mention eating some outstanding vegan food.

Using up bananas and making applesauce

In November I posted about getting a new regular veg box delivery every fortnight, which also includes some fruit. So far it’s been a great success, with some really tasty and interesting fresh, local and organic produce arriving at my doorstep every two weeks. However, whilst we’re generally getting through the contents of the box most fortnights, every now and again we end up with some fruit coming to the end of its shelf life - particularly bananas and occasionally apples.
