Foodie Greenwashing: What Is It and Why Does It Make Me So Angry?

You may not have heard the term “greenwashing” before.  I certainly hadn’t, until I was sitting in front of a manager from one of my favourite environmental charities, Cool Earth, and he began talking about the various companies who were doing it. I nodded knowingly, whilst simultaneously trying to Google the definition under the coffee-shop table. Continue reading Foodie Greenwashing: What Is It and Why Does It Make Me So Angry?

Meat Free Monday: Smokey BBQ Chipotle Beans

When I read about Tabasco’s new range of sauces and marinades, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on the Chipotle and Smokey Bourbon flavour and see what I could rustle up – especially as I am doing Veganuary at the moment and it’s all 100% vegan-friendly.

I’ve been smothering this all over sweet potato fries and dipping my avocado on toast in it, but if you fancy doing something a little more ‘cheffy’, here’s my recipe for Chipotle BBQ beans. Continue reading Meat Free Monday: Smokey BBQ Chipotle Beans

Veganuary: Week One

Well here I am, just over a week in to Veganuary (a month of eating vegan) and I have lost 5lb. Now I know that weight loss isn’t the reason why I am trying a vegan diet (and most of this is probably water retention seeing as I was carrying some serious alcohol-bloat on my midsection after Christmas) but I’ve got to admit – it still feels good!

Wahaca Review: Ethical Mexican Street Food

Everyone knows I love Wahaca. I’ve eaten there loads of times in London, I’ve written about their founder, 2005 Masterchef winner Thomasina Miers before, and later in August I wrote about how excited I was when she announced Wahaca was coming to Cardiff.

Help the homeless this Christmas in Cardiff

Originally posted on We Are Cardiff:

If you live anywhere south of Cardiff Central station, you may have seen the Huggard Centre, that sits at the top of Dumballs Road. Huggard is a Cardiff-based charity tackling homelessness and seeking to overcome the problems and barriers that force individuals to sleep rough on our streets.


That’s a big deal, right? Now, it’s Christmas. Whether you were one of those people battering others out the way for a cut price TV on Black Friday or not, hopefully you aren’t going to have to spend Christmas in the cold, sleeping on the street.

If you’re fortunate enough to have a roof over your head, and probably give and receive way more than you or your loved ones need this Christmas, how about giving something to those who have not?

This Christmas, while you’re heading to town and stocking up on bits and pieces for your family, could you maybe…
