My Lisbon food diary.

Lisbon. The mother home of Pastel del Natas, Fado and tinned sardines. If I were to describe Lisbon on paper it would be the love child of Prague and Barcelona a love child who grew up in Edinburgh. This idea, I admit stems from the city’s charming streets filled with street art and its somewhat…

Turmeric, Chocolate, Orange and Almond cake. *Vegan*

Trying all things Turmeric… This week is a two for one blog post where I talk about all things turmeric giving you two recipes instead of one; a vegan turmeric cake and a health beneficial turmeric paste.

Barcelona and the twin effect.

“What’s it like being a twin?” A question I answer almost on a weekly basis. Every time I meet someone new this question normally continues with a trail of common follow up questions such as; “Do you think and feel the same?”, “can you read each other’s minds?”, “do you ever play tricks on people?”…

Seeing more of Scotland.

It is fair to say I fell a little bit in love last weekend… I’ve lived in Scotland for about 99% of my life and I am ashamed to say that I have barely scratched the surface. Yes, I have explored the cities, but never have I ventured beyond. Last weekend I was truly blown…

Kombucha.

I never thought I would be into keeping pets, but it seems that I have ended up with two, first a starter and now a SCOBY… This weird jellyfish looking thing is called a SCOBY and it is what I use to make kombucha, my latest craze. Thanks to the increasing interest and research into…

CBD infused brownies. *Vegan*

CBD, a chemical which in recent times has finally had some positive recognition. Celebrities such as Cameron Diaz and Morgan Freeman have been endorsing its relaxation and pain-relieving effects with Olivia Wilde even using it in her skincare routine. Since its acceptance in the UK, CBD has been appearing everywhere online and in the shops…

Booze, bikes and breaking borders.

This weeks post is less about food and more about fundraising. You never know who you’re going to meet in your local bar and as it turns out, this time, I met a rather hairy hero. After spending my Friday evening drinking wine and painting pottery at a newly discovered BYOB studio (if you haven’t…

Soft sourdough.

Reducing waste one sourdough at a time… Since my experience Africa I have become so much more conscious about my eating habits. After living in a home where resources were scarce and little was produced in the nearby allotment, I have become more mindful when it comes to food. Mindful about what I am eating,…

Blueberry, Coconut and Lemon Cake *Vegan*

“You cant even tell its Vegan!” I have lost count at how many times I’ve heard someone say this. Whether it is about a food substitute, cake or a meal out they have had. They say it in a way that, as if because it is Vegan it isn’t going to be as tasty. Well…
