Our Trip to Tel Aviv, Israel: Part One

It’s taken me a quite while to get around to this post, despite the fact that it is inspired by the best vegetarian food I’ve ever eaten. That’s because this post is about Tel Aviv, in Israel. I have decided to split this in two, with part one explaining why it’s taken me so long to sit down and get this written up. Continue reading

Meat Free Monday: It’s Time to Take The Pledge

For a while now, you’ll have noticed the words ‘Meat Free Monday’ popping up on my blog. Most of the recipes that I share tend to be veggie or vegan and are usually preceded by those three words, I guess with an assumption that most people know what the heck I’m talking about. Well, for those that don’t, this one’s for you. Continue reading


The Lush Summer Blog Event with Waterloo Tea

You all know I love Lush. Not because of the kitsch packaging or the weird-smelling shops (weird in a good way), and not because of the bath bombs filled with glitter and dried flowers and all sorts of fun stuff. I love them because they are good. Ethical, moral, and sustainable but also not afraid to put their money where their mouth is and make a noise about  things that matter (see here). Continue reading

Seriously tasty chicken. Not good if you're on a diet!

An Open Letter: Dear Meat Eaters…

Hungry City Hippy:

A fabulous, passionate post from fellow blogger ‘Fit as a Flea’ which was definitely worth a share… nailed it, Caitlin!

Originally posted on Fit As A Flea:

I’ve been a vegetarian for nearly eight years now and I’ve never been one to preach about it, but if you eat meat I beg you to watch the second of two Horizon programmes called Should I Eat Meat?, aired last week.

The first programme was about the health implications of eating too much meat. Did you know that by eating one portion of processed red meat a day – that’s just two rashers of bacon – you’re decreasing your life expectancy by two years? That might not sound like a lot, but over 40 years that’s equivalent to losing one hour from every single day.

But it’s the second episode, which focuses on the environmental impact of rearing enough animals to meet demand, that had me close to tears.

I’m going to keep this short as I’d much rather you watch the documentary, but if you don’t have…

Kings Cross, London: Green Gourmet Heaven

About 5 years ago, I used to live in Kings Cross.

It was the cheapest place you could afford to rent in within zone 1 or 2, as long as you were prepared to live in a flat that was filled with mice and had no living room – which I was. It was first station in London that I ever learned to navigate like a pro, the first area I really got to grips with. In essence, it was the first part of London that I ever thought of as home.

It was also a massive shit-hole.

Grouse Hunting and the Hen Harriers: The Big Debate

Do you eat grouse? Would you consider it an ethical choice? It is after all, a free-range game bird, so why wouldn’t it be?
International conservation charity World Land Trust are holding a public meeting and debate with Chris Packham at the Royal Society of London on 2 September 2014, and the issue of driven grouse hunting is likely to be a hot topic.
