Lazy Vegan Recipe: Naturally Sweetened Cashew and Arrowroot Cookies

I realised the other day that it’s been a long time since I shared one of my lazy vegan recipes, and hoped you all didn’t think I hadn’t been eating much since I shared my herby, “creamy” garlic courgettes and barley recipe in January. Believe me, I have been eating plenty!

But at the weekend, when I had a case of late night sweet tooth munchies, I concocted a recipe to use up whatever I could find it the cupboards; and it was surprisingly a massive success! In particular, I wanted to make a dent in a jar of arrowroot I bought when trying out Green Moxie’s Natural organic eye shadow recipe. It’s pretty awesome that one ingredient can make you pretty and give you a happy belly!

The best thing about these cookies is that it’s all naturally sweetened thanks to the agave syrup, so they are almost guilt free. You can also swap the nuts for your favs; I just love cashews.

Green Activity Ideas for Earth Hour

Tonight I’m really looking forward to my first WWF Earth Hour experience. This year, the global annual event will see hundreds of millions of people switch off their lights, for one hour, to demonstrate their love of our wonderful planet. I love the idea that for just a short amount of time, millions across the globe are partaking in something so simple but symbolic; in a bid to raise awareness for environmental and conservation issues.

So between 8.30 and 9.30pm, I’ll be switching off all my lights, TV and music; and showing my love to the Earth!

But an hour with no electricity can actually be very long and boring if you’re not prepared, so I thought I’d share some of my green ideas for entertaining yourself during Earth Hour: Continue reading Green Activity Ideas for Earth Hour

Tiny Green Living

Earlier this month I made a step to downsize my outgoings, and belongings, by moving into a small but cosy studio apartment. I spent hours in the lead up to the move sorting through my stuff; posting onto Streetbank, donating to charity shops and recycling where they had completely given up the goat. It was surprisingly cleansing to get rid of so much, even the things I had kept onto for over 10 years. But surprise, surprise, when I moved into my new studio flat – which is literally a room with a bathroom attached – I realised that my many attempts of de-cluttering was simply not enough. I still have far too much stuff! Continue reading Tiny Green Living

Lazy Local shopping: Cornish Food Market

Hello my lovely lazies, how are you?!

It’s been a pretty crazy few weeks for me, with one huge event to organise at work, plus the worlds most disorganised house move ever! But I’ve settled in to my brand new little home with more resolutions that the last 5 New Years rolled in to one! Aside from doing daily yoga and meditation, and eating less junk food, I’m also going to be ditching the car and walking the 40 minutes to work everyday day. Watch this space..
