  • I have to admit, I'm not much of a baker. I'd much rather make savoury meals.⁠
Luckily, I have an amazing mum who is! She makes and sends me recipes for cakes and bakes, that are easy enough even for me to have a go at.⁠
⁠
A basic vanilla sponge cake pleases everyone. It's the perfect starting point for a birthday cake, or with added icing, whipped cream or sprinkles.⁠
⁠
Ingredients:⁠
210 g plain flour⁠
250 ml soy milk⁠
200 g sugar (white or coconut)⁠
80 ml oil (olive or vegetable)⁠
0.5 tsp bicarbonate of soda⁠
0.5 tsp table salt⁠
1 tbsp apple cider vinegar⁠
3 tsp vanilla extract⁠
⁠
Instructions:⁠
⭐️Warm the oven to 180oC.⁠
⭐️Add the flour, sugar, salt and bicarbonate of soda to a bowl (don't forget to sift your flour!) and mix.⁠
⭐️Add the remaining ingredients, and whisk thoroughly.⁠
⭐️Add the mixture to a greased cake tin (7in diameter works well).⁠
⭐️Bake for 25-30 mins.⁠
⭐️Eat alone or add vegan single cream, vanilla frosting or buttercream if preferred.⁠

  • This week I’ve been taking part in a #whatieatinadayvegan Veganuary special. Today is my day to share my meals! 
I always start the day with warm lemon water. It’s refreshing and gets the digestion going!
Next is a green juice. My go-to for this is cucumber, celery, apple, orange, ginger and spinach/kale. A hit of nutrients!
Mid morning is smoothie time, and today was mango banana. I always add flax or hemp seeds for omega 3. 
For lunch I usually have a loaded salad. But today was Saturday and Ben was hungry! So we had a lovely brunch 😍
Off to my mum’s for dinner. She’s not vegan but always makes great vegan food! We had spaghetti bolognese, garlic bread and apple cake for pudding. My mum actually prefers making vegan cakes as she thinks they taste better 👍
Eating vegan is so easy! If you have any questions or need meal ideas just hit me up anytime. 
And do go ahead and check out the other lovelies taking part in this week’s posts - @rs_recipes @thecookandhim @veginspired @veganbabelife @eatswithel_ @viva.vegana
  • Are your children going vegan with you?⁠
⁠
Last year, I was so excited to publish this guest post from fellow vegan and businesswoman, Naomi Sheridan! Naomi is the mother of two beautiful and healthy vegan children, so I was really interested to hear her advice on raising vegan children.⁠
⁠
Whether your children are fully vegan, or just incorporating healthier foods into their diet, I hope you find it useful.⁠

  • This is important for me.⁠
⁠
When I was vegetarian, I saw no issue at all with eating dairy and eggs. In my mind, it wasn't meat, and animals produced them anyway. It was that simple for me. ⁠
⁠
Of course, with the rise of social media I was exposed to more animal rights petitions, and undercover footage of factory farms. But STILL, I thought they were isolated incidents, unrelated to the food I was personally eating.⁠
⁠
It wasn't until I finally did my own research (the objective scientist in me wanted to find the evidence and arguments for and against veganism) that it all finally clicked for me. I knew that as an animal lover, I would feel like a hypocrite cuddling my cats and condoning meat, while sitting down to cheese and omelettes.⁠
⁠
I phased out dairy and eggs. I looked into the processes behind leather and wool. It wasn't an overnight transition yet before I knew it, I was a fully-fledged vegan.⁠
⁠
This quote means a lot to me. Animals are here with us, not for us. Their bodies and 'products' are their own. ⁠
⁠
How about you? What's your story?⁠

  • The BOSH book is on sale!⁠
🥳🥳⁠
Ben bought me 'BOSH! How to Live Vegan' after I had Ava, to read while feeding. I'm really enjoying it!⁠
⁠
It's a great read for new or existing vegans, with life hacks, advice and difficult questions answered. Things like dealing with friends and family, wearing old leather clothes, are all discussed.⁠
⁠
It's on sale for £7 right now ⁠
(I'll pop the link in my bio).⁠
⁠
PS. Have you seen the new cooking show from the BOSH boys? It's on ITV, called Living On The Veg. Go get it on catch-up. ⁠
