Lazy Vegan Recipe: Tempeh, Seaweed and Peanut Superfood Stirfry

Walking home from work last night, I felt lethargic. The stuffy summer air made my breathing feel labored, and my limbs refused to cooperate with the motion of walking forward. But most of all, my brain was in hibernation; refusing to give me any indication of what i should do that evening, and what my body craved to make it feel a bit more alive.

The Observer Ethical Awards 2015

I’m back in Cornwall after an amazingly inspiring (and amazing hot and sweaty..) week in London.  It was great to catch up with my London office girls and get a change of scenery to mix up my working week, but the highlight had to be a night spent at the Observer Ethical Awards courtesy of the lovely people at Ecover!

This year marked the 10th year of the awards, which are all about celebrating the people, organisations and campaigners who are leading the way to ensure we have an ethical future. The categories for the awards ranged from Campaigner of the year and Community energy project award, to Ethical product of the decade!! Longstanding supporter of the awards, Ecover, sponsored the young green champions category; presenting the winner with  a £6,000 bursary to continue and build on their great work.

Text book mistake for an aspiring greenling! Continue reading Why I’m not Carbon Offsetting this summer

Vegan in London: Review of Gujarati Rasoi

I’m in the big Smoke ready for tonight’s Observer Ethical Awards (more on this in a couple of days!) and that can only mean one thing, yummy food time! Though Cornwall is getting better for Vegan dining, London wins hands down for variety and choice.

My ultimate fav London Vegan hang outs are usually Mildreds, Woodlands South Indian or Vantra Vitao – all central, affordable and absolutely delicious!

But last night, venturing North for the evening, my friend took me to one of her local favourites, Gujarati Rasoil; which serves traditional, wholesome and vegetarian food (with a nice selection of vegan options) Continue reading Vegan in London: Review of Gujarati Rasoi
