I’m a big fan of the Hulu/Disney show The Bear. It’s a food comedy/drama about a dysfunctional sandwich shop in Chicago. To appreciate it, you truly have to embrace the entertaining but ofttimes chaotic and jarring interaction of the characters.

Since 2014, Veganuary has inspired and supported more than half a million people in 178 countries to try vegan for January. 2020 was the biggest year yet, finally - in my opinion - hitting the mainstream. A year into being vegan, I filled my January with as many of the new products as I could get my hands on.

Overnight oats are a delicious and really nutritious way to start your day. Prepared in minutes the night before and topped with as much or as little as you want. If you're a cereal & milk person, give this a go for a week and see if it improves your mornings!

A short family holiday to the remote Welsh countryside was a great opportunity to experiment with some vegan cooking for some non-vegans. Finding or cooking good vegan food in a different kitchen can be a challenge, but with good preparation it doesn't have to be a drag.

My journey to being vegan was in some respects pretty typical. I dabbled with vegetarianism, dropped it in favour of a flexitarian lifestyle, before diving into veganism and not looking back. My account of my 3-year journey.

What I eat in a day, after an energetic start to the day and a hungry shop for ingredients. I list prices and macros for each meal, as well as tips, improvements and suggested tweaks to some online recipes.

Today marks 1 year of being vegetarian. "What's the plan now?" I've asked myself for, well, about 11 months. A year of not eating meat was never a goal from the outset; I rather unceremoniously slid into it after watching the eye-opening Cowspiracy documentary. I was raised and have always been surrounded by meat-eaters, and up until a little over a year ago, I hadn't even entertained an alternative lifestyle.

Following a rather half-arsed wander around my town's new Woolworthes replacement - the prestiogous 99p store - I stumbled upon something quite magnificent. You may remember a post I made last month about the disappearance of my favourite sweets. Well, I am proud to announce, Bassetts now sell a very similar product under the name 'Bassetts Allsorts - Red Liquorice'.

It's something I've feared for a while now, and as of today I have given up hope. It seems Bassetts Fruit Allsorts no longer exist. I just need a minute...
The daringly delicious alternative to Liquorice Allsorts seems to have vanished from the face of the Earth. I can only assume this is due to lack of popularity, as the general concencus online seems to be negative. I find this hard to believe, and I stand alone when I say I love loved Fruit Allsorts.
