The best vegan Sandwich in the whole wide world, so there! I am so excited to tell you about this sandwich. It has transformed my vegan life and is simply my most favourite sandwich in the whole world. I have always been a fan of mayonnaise filling sandwiches, especially on crunchy toasted wholemeal bread. (Salivating now!) I used to love tuna mayo, egg mayo, chicken mayo, I think you get the gist. However, truly and honestly, no sandwich I have ever tasted (pre-vegan or otherwise) is this delicious. Now, having this sandwich on toasty bread is my preference but this filling would also work so well as a regular sandwich, wrap or even just as a salad in its own right. It really does take all my strength to not eat the whole bowl before the bread has finished toasting! I’ve kept this as a very relaxed recipe without specific quantiles of each ingredient as I think a sandwich is such a personal thing. I love loads of red onion in mine but Paul only likes a little. Fin can’t get enough gherkins in his sandwich and Pops wants barely any. So here are the basic ingredients and method but […]
Sunny Baobab juice We first heard about the baobab tree when we went to visit the Eden Project in Cornwall. We were enjoying the tropical temperatures of the rainforest zone and had the chance to cool down with a vanilla and baobab ice cream. Baobab has a citrusy taste which was so gentle and refreshing. That was the last I thought about baobab for a while until I saw it in a health food shop and thought I’d do a little research to find out what it was all about. I was quite astonished when I realised it was a superfood. Baobab powder comes from the deciduous baobab tree. You can find it in Madagascar, mainland Africa, Arabia, and Australia. In Africa they call it ‘The Tree of life.’ And for good reason too as it has a whole host of nutritious benefits. Dried baobab fruit powder is loaded with antioxidants, especially vitamin C. It is one of the highest plant food sources of calcium gram for gram and is rich in potassium, magnesium, protein and finer too. It is also classed as a prebiotic too! It is perfect added to smoothies, cereals or just added to water for a zesty […]

I am so excited to be writing out this blog post today. There’s is nothing we love more than connecting with you guys and supporting fellow vegans and their upcoming businesses and today is no exception. We feel so blessed every day with the support all of our followers give us and recently we made friends with a lovely fellow vegan blogger who has kindly agreed to chat with you guys and share some of her vast knowledge of vegan products. Sammy is the founder of bakeydoesntbake.com. Her business originally started as an Instagram account where she would share her vegan finds, happily sharing the message of how easy it is to be vegan in this day and age. She has a passion for vegan makeup and aside from all of the food products and restaurant reviews she also has a great section pointing people in the right direction for all things vegan beauty. After discussing ideas with Sammy we realised that there are a lot of people out there questioning veganism. Some people may be feeling tempted to try it but feel overwhelmed by the fear of missing out on their favourite foods. (I know I did in the […]
This has been my favourite month of the unschooling year so far. I think that’s partly down to the increase in weather temperature, allowing us to get out and about a bit more but also because we have made many new friends this month. Its just been the kind of month that clicks. (Plus we went to the beach which makes everything better right?) So without further ado, onto our monthly questions… What did the kids learn that I didn’t teach them? Pops learnt how to do a helicopter street dance move. Very impressive it is too! Fin taught himself how to write Tesco. I couldn’t believe it when he walked in with a Tesco shopping list that he had written out himself! Spelt perfectly too Fin, well done! What did the kids teach me that I didn’t already know? Pops taught me that crocodiles grow teeth up to 50 times and Fin taught me that hot water is heavier than cold water. Apparently, its because heat holds more energy. This fact blew me away. The kids had been reading the Usborne lift the flap General Knowledge book together and taught me many things that I didn’t already know. What […]
Cream cheese and chives I have spent what feels like a lifetime trying to get my little girl to eat cheese. She didn’t like non-vegan cheese before going vegan. (Which I don’t blame her for now!) She hates the smell of shop bought vegan cheese (she has a point) and she’s even turned her nose up at some of my previous homemade cheese recipes. So I guess you’re thinking, leave the poor girl alone and stop trying to make her eat cheese right? I hear you. However, when we are all tucking into a cracker platter or trying to stop her toppings from falling of her pizza I feel the need to find the glue that would help stick her food together. (I’m so not selling this I know but bear with me.) Now, I don’t want to create a cheese for cheese’s sake. For those of you who know me, it’s all about the nutrition so after many tried, tested and failed attempts I have struck gold. Now Pops on the odd occasion used to eat cream cheese so this is where I thought I would start. She also loves houmous and cream cheese is a similar dip style […]
