Ditch the January Detox and Try Veganuary

OK, I’m only going to admit this to you just this once, so soak it up while you can. I didn’t exactly follow any of my own advice when it came to succumbing to Christmas confectionary. In fact, not only did I not “step away from those special edition boxes of chocolates” as I advised last month; I continue to purchase said naughtiness to this day. I know I know, I’ve put shame on the whole sustainable community and I deserve every inch of the added layer nestled around my waist!

But as per tradition, January is a time of getting fit, getting healthy, and generally getting off our butts after a month of eating, drinking and being far too merry! I’m sure I’m not the only one making health food shopping lists, avoiding alcohol and setting a 6am alarm for that early morning run (which predictably gets put off for “one more day“).

The Surprising Talents of Fruit Stones

It’s over half through Zero Waste Week already, and I’m slowly learning my lesson that the key is in the planning! Having gotten back from a lazy holiday away, to an impending week of daily blogging; I knew from the onset the easy task of doing “one more thing” to reduce my waste might actually be harder than it first sounded. But I have been eternally grateful to the impressive inspiration oozing from everyone involved in the week, and it has spurred me on to get off my butt and get waste fighting!

But after several days of feeling smug that not one part of my fruit or veg was being thrown away, I hit a wall. Well, more accurately, I hit a stone…a plum stone. I obviously didn’t want to throw it away, but I was smart enough to realise that it would do more damage than good if I tried to stick it in my juicer! Had I finally found the one piece of food I couldn’t eat?! Continue reading The Surprising Talents of Fruit Stones

Lazy Recipe; Moist & Healthy Vegan Blueberry Muffins

Ok, so blueberry muffins are traditionally not too hard to create. And if you’re looking for inspiration, you should look no further than Vegan Muffin Woman, who’s stunning muffin recipes will make even the biggest vegan sceptic want to throw away their butter and munch on her sweet delights!

But….I like this muffin recipe lots and lots because not only are they quick, easy and very tasty; they are actually pretty healthy too! That’s because I let the berries do all the work when it comes to sweetness and moisture; so they don’t need much added sugar or fat. It also works well with raspberries.  Continue reading Lazy Recipe; Moist & Healthy Vegan Blueberry Muffins
