ROUND-UPS

14.11.2019

In the last couple of years, we've seen a huge increase in vegan products popping up on the supermarket shelves. It’s improved to the point where I could walk into any large store and be confident to find some sort of vegan meat or dairy alternative. This has really helped to debunk the old fashioned stereotype that vegans only eat "rabbit food"! Thankfully, that view is now almost completely out the window. In recent months,...

Although summer seems to have disappeared into the abyss, when we made this post, we were enjoying a heatwave that saw temperatures rise to 39 degrees in London. All we wanted to eat was ice cream, ice lollies and just more ice! Last summer we got really into eating frozen watermelon, so this year we thought we'd see what delicious frozen fruit pops we could create to help ease that summer heat! 

Freezing fruit is a really easy...

When I was younger I neglected my skin. I had no concept of what my daily skincare routine should be and I definitely wouldn't have been able to walk into a pharmacy and pick up the products that were right for me. I can now happily say that's all changed. With a little guidance from Freya, and a little exploring for myself, I have now found a range of affordable, vegan and high-quality skincare products for men.

What I've foun...

We probably bang on about it all the time, so much so that you'll be sick of us going on and on, but it's totally true. There are so many amazing new vegan products hitting the shelves of the supermarkets every day! This week we've decided to go back to the shops and put together a roundup of some of our favourite dessert options. We've picked out our favourite treats and gone through the deliciously rigorous job of taste test...

One of the most common misunderstandings is that vegans don't consume enough protein. I remember my parents were concerned about this very thing when I told them Freya and I were going vegan, they were worried our health might be affected by the change in our diet. And I think it's a fair concern, it's always important to make sure you're eating a balanced diet. Freya and I did our research and found that for vegans protein co...

One thing we always get asked by both vegans and non-vegans is what dairy-free milk we use. We've tried a lot of different ones over the past few years, but always keep coming back to the same few. The world of milk alternatives is a vast one, and there are countless brands and flavours out there to choose from! Personally, we like to use different types of milk for different purposes, as each one has a unique specific flavour...

This week we wanted to share with you something a little different. As you may have read in our recent post on Gorgias Argan Facial Oil, we're expanding our little blog by creating lots more vegan related content across a range of different subjects. For the past year, we've only been talking about all things food, but we're now branching out to share with you all aspects of a vegan lifestyle.

What we're really passionate about...

Anyone else already eaten a few cheeky Easter eggs before the big day?! That's one of the perks of being a grown-up; you don't have to wait until the Easter bunny visits to gobble up all those yummy Easter themed goodies! Easter is only just around the corner, which is something we're constantly reminded of every time we go into the supermarket! The shelves have been stocked full of Easter treats for weeks, and we've been chec...

What can there be to say about toast? It seems so simple that it doesn’t need an introduction. It goes without saying that toast is one of the easiest meals to prepare…it’s toast! It’s something that you shove in your mouth as you’re running out the door late for work, or as a midnight snack after a night out. Maybe we’ve become a little too blasé about the humble toast though, it's so unrefined and overlooked. We can all agre...

“It’s the most won-der-ful time of the yeeeeaaaar!” Or at least we think it is... No apologies to all the Grinch’s and Humbugs out there, we love a bit Christmas cheese! The season of gift-giving and all things Christmassy has come around again, and you may be thinking, what on earth do I get that vegan friend or colleague in my life?! You may think buying gifts for vegans is tricky, but if you know what to look for, you’ll fi...

Whether you’re enjoying the latest blockbuster on the cinema’s big screen, or you’re snuggled up on the sofa watching an old favourite, there’s nothing quite like a good movie! It can be a thriller, romance or comedy, but I firmly believe that no film is quite complete without the right snacks! So what are the right snacks? Well, that depends on if you’re going to the cinema or staying at home. If you’ve decided to watch a fil...

If you were to ask me what my favourite meal time is, my reply would undoubtedly be brunch on a Sunday. I absolutely love spending time in the kitchen cooking up big feasts, but as an organisationally-challenged person I need take the time to make sure that I have actively put in thought and planning into cooking a meal, I envy the people who can come up with brilliant recipe ideas at the drop of a hat, I am not much of a spon...

It’s that time of year again, it's our short lived British summer time and all I want to eat is tubs and tubs full of ice cream to make the most of it. Being vegan definitely doesn’t mean you have to miss out on a big bowl of chocolate fudge brownie! You can buy vegan ice cream from pretty much every supermarket and in a huge range of flavours. Even Ben & Jerry’s has 3 classic flavours for you to choose from. We’ve tried quite...

When I first became vegan, I would read loads of recipes online that had all sorts of weird sounding ingredients in (nutritional yeast?!) that I’d never heard of before. I had no idea how to use these ingredients, what they were, or where I could get them from. It was honestly a little overwhelming knowing where to start. A few years down the line, and some of these more unusual ingredients are things we now can’t live without...
