The strange world we live in.

I know that I said I would be posting again soon, and I promise that I will!

You know how people always say “Don’t read the comments!” on controversial posts? I really need to listen to that advice.
On a post recently about how fish feel pain, it was truly saddening to see the sheer number of comments from people who either don’t care, or don’t understand that all life matters.
I won’t go into a huge rant here, as I feel I’ve spent far too much time on this lately. It did however inspire me to do a little doodle, so I though I would share it here.

I’ll just leave you with this.

No matter who you are, what you believe in, whether you’re an omnivore, vegetarian, vegan, or anything in between – Show some more compassion in your life. So often, you see people who don’t agree throw insults at each other. If we all showed others a little more respect, and showed a little more compassion to other living beings, the world would be a much better place.

We won’t get there overnight. But if everyone made one small effort, then at least we’d be on our way.

Much love 🙂

Vegan Island!

Helloooooo! My goodness it’s been a while hasn’t it? Don’t you find when you don’t do something for a while, it gets harder and harder to get back to it? That’s what I’ve been like! I’ve still been cooking up all manners of vegan goodies, and I’ve even photographed most of it! So I have literally hundreds of foodie photos to bombard you all with soon :D.

I’ve started doing some little vegan humour doodles! Who here has had the “You’re vegan? But, what if you were stuck on a desert island?” question? Probably nearly everyone! So here’s my little take on it!

I think it looks like a rather nice place to live!

I should be getting some more posts up again soon :).

In the meantime, let me know what you think!

Vegan Mofo – Comforting vegetable & chickpea soup

Good evening! I’m finally -kinda- able to blog again! I’m currently borrowing my partners laptop (which thankfully hasn’t died on me yet!) to type this, so fingers crossed! I have discovered that his laptop doesn’t like my phone.. so I’ve figured out that by uploading the photos to my blog on my phone, I can then edit them using my partners laptop! Phew! I WILL find a way!

The night before yesterday, I had put on a huge pot of chickpeas to cook overnight in my slow cooker. I’d looked into my pantry and had been disheartened to find I only had one tin of chickpeas left! I love chickpeas and use them every week, so I was a little heartbroken.. until I noticed I had several bags of dried chickpeas lurking in my pantry! Problem solved! In they went to cook overnight, so by the morning I had gorgeous, perfectly cooked chickpeas just begging to be used.

Since it was a bit of a chilly day, I thought what better way to use some of the chickpeas, than in a soup!

Vegan MOFO – Day 2

Good god, where has the day gone? I had planned on having a recipe post up today, but things have been so busy I haven’t had the chance! What with work, packing to move, tidying, cooking, and spending the evening taking our bed apart (it’s as fun as it sounds) I no longer have the time to post up a recipe, so it will have to wait until tomorrow. For now, I will just share some foodie photos from today!

Vegan MOFO!

Hello! I know I know, I haven’t blogged in ages! It’s been crazy busy here in Pixie land lately, and this week I’m trying get everything sorted ready to move house on the weekend! Eeek!

And yep, that’s another house move. So far, we have spent Christmas in a new house every year for at least the past 6 years.. Every time we move, we say “We’ll definitely be staying here longer than the last house!”… And then every year, somehow it doesn’t end up working out that way. Oh well, perhaps we’re really just nomads? .. With lots and lots of stuff? I honestly don’t know how we accumulate so much! ..Well, I do.. I have a lot of art supplies, I hoard kitchen doodahs and gadgets like a culinary magpie, and I have enough clothes for a small country… I could try blaming it on our little one.. Kids have lots of stuff, right..? But really, it’s just me..

So, having been too busy (that’s my excuse anyway..) to blog lately, and getting busier by the day as the move approaches, I have gone and done the sane thing of signing up to this years  Vegan MOFO! Which is essentially a month-long blogging challenge, where bloggers attempt to blog every day (or at least 20 times) about all things vegan! Completely sane of course.. and will in no way drive me bonkers.. (Though I do have mental images of myself trying to keep typing out posts whilst balancing boxes to move on my head..)

Anyway, I have a tonne of posts piling up to share with you all (I still need to tell you all about the Raw Fruit Fest! So much to tell!), as well as lots of other lovely things. But I thought that I would ease back into blogging with a nice and simple post today.

Vegan & Raw in Camden!

Hellooo, it’s been too long! As some of you may know, I spent the majority of last week volunteering at the first ever UK Fruitfest! (though hopefully, the first of many!). I got back (Very exhausted) on Sunday, and have since then spent my time recovering! It’s amazing how you never really realise how worn out you are, until you stop for a moment… Phew.

Anyway, more on that later. I still have one more post to share with you all about my time in Camden, so here it is! (I have so many posts to share with you all! Catching up slowly though!)

When we finally arrived in London, we are very hungry! I posted about what foods we had managed to take (and find!) on our journey to London here, but I knew where we would be going as soon as we arrived.. so I made sure not to fill up too much..

Amazing onion rings – Healthy and delicious! Cooked & Raw options!

I have pretty mixed feelings about onion rings. Whilst I will agree that they are tasty.. traditional onion rings, in all their battered, fried glory.. just seem pretty.. gross.
Heavily processed, lacking in nutritional value, and high in fat..
If you make them yourself they will obviously be better.. but what if you could make them healthy?
