And start again…

We all have accidents. My work colleague caught me licking an envelope, she looked horrified and asked if I should be doing that. It took me a second and then I realised I had just licked cow. I wouldn’t mind but it wasn’t even an envelope you’re supposed to lick! She asked me if I…

Nakd Bars

I first became aware of Nakd bars when I fell for that trap that supermarkets use. You know the one where you’re in the que and they place sweet goodies like bait just waiting for you to touch it, catch you with a quick flick of their invisible rod only for it to be on…

New favourite place to eat alert! Just a shame I don’t live in Lincoln, if I did this would definitely become my local. My brother lives near Lincoln, we thought we’d have lunch on the way to see him. I have a feeling I’ll be visiting a lot more from now on. Cafe Shanti is…

Where have you been all my life?

Well hello new favourite thing! I’ve just discovered a website that will make things so much easier for me and I’m sure loads of vegans out there who can’t be bothered reading ingredients or have bad eyesight.

What I eat in a day

I’ve noticed this is a popular subject and I’m not surprised as it is something I get asked a lot. By that I mean someone at work asked me what I was having for dinner once… I can read between the lines. So here’s a typical week day in my house; After walking the dog…
