Vegan burger dilemma 

So this week I’ve been out for a burger twice which is a rarity for me. The first was after yoga on Monday. It’s turned into a routine that we try something new every week and it’s a good excuse to get my yoga teacher Kirsty to try vegan food and to show her how…

Semit aka sesame bread rings

Semit aka Sesame bread rings This year I want to take the time to make as much of my food from scratch myself rather than buying it from the shop. This week’s bread is Semit. It’s a bit like a bagel but less chewy, less work and just as tasty. Ingredients – 500g of plain…

Throwback Thursday

In Kyoto we stumbled on a tiny tiny miso shop called Miso Pota who sold… you guessed it – Miso Pots. This is miso with a difference though. Here was their Halloween soup which contained pumpkin and sweet potato. I had with with soy sauce rice crackers and a salad I made in our wee…

Sauerkraut

All you need is a cabbage and 2-3 tbsp of salt. Simply chop up your cabbage and discard any thick stalks. Rub in the salt and press under a weighted plate for an hour. You’ll see water starting to come out of the cabbage which is exactly what you want. Tightly pack the cabbage into…

This week on Instagram 

Well my smoothie game has vastly improved, as you can see by the range of colours in this weeks pics. On the whole things are getting a lot healthier with my diet which is fantastic as it’s helped me get over a cold in record time this week. I feel a lot better for it…

January Round-Up

At the beginning of 2017 I set some intentions for the year ahead but has it actually worked and what has happened? Intention 1 – Improve my physical health. Before yoga classes started up again I was having fun with @yogaracheal’s 21 day foundations of yoga however after 4 days she stopped posting and shortly…

Last week on Instagram 

We’re currently in London so a lot of this is what we’ve been eating while we explore with the lovely people from Shire Snax.  We’ve got our breakfast from Eat in Edinburgh airport which was surprisingly good. We’ve got lunch at Fed By Water which was delicious as always, a visit to Yorika for dessert…

Last week on Instagram

Last week on Instagram seems to have mainly been about smoothies. Working in a gelato shop is amazing and I love it there but being surrounded y the smell of freshly baked waffles and having vegan gelato on hand the whole time is not good for me. One of my Intentions for 2017 is to…

Roast Roots and Hummus

Here’s something to do with leftover roast vegetables from all those Christmas and New Year meals. Or something to have as a light and simple starter before the main event. Or a nice sharing plate for New Year’s day… I guess what I’m saying is this is a great plate of food whatever the excuse…

Setting intentions for the year ahead. 

Rather than New Years Resolutions which undoubtedly will be forgotten and broken within weeks of 2017 starting I like to set an intention for the year ahead. What do I mean by intention?  It’s a positive goal or focus. For example instead of ‘I’m going to stop being so fat and unhealthy’ a better way…

AIN SOPH ripple – Tokyo

So it turns out there is an all vegan burger shop at the end of the road we stay on in Shinjuku, Tokyo. While I was glad we found it I’m also glad we didn’t know it was there until now as it’s painfully expensive compared to everywhere else we’ve visited. We decided to go…
