Vegan Doesn’t Mean Kale, Quinoa, and Lentils! Vegan Junk Food

I love how January has been taken over by the Veganuary initiative! If you are giving a plant-based diet a go this New Year, then that’s awesome but don’t think you only have to eat Kale, Quinoa, and Lentils! When you go Vegan, you can have all the food you loved before, and the best […]

The Best Vegan Chocolate Cake Recipe

We started it in 2007 way before we were Vegans but when we went Vegan, we changed it to a Vegan Bakery. We specialised in celebration cakes for Weddings, Birthdays, and Corporate events and […]

A Countryside Without Farm Animals Would Not Look Nice

A Countryside Without Farm Animals Would Not Look Nice. This is a strange statement and when we were first presented with it, we didn’t really have an answer prepared. Often, people will not really think about the alternatives and when they are not aware of the suffering and abuse animals suffer, questions like this would […]

10 Ways To Get Involved With Animal Activism

When my family and I went vegan, we quickly realised that knowing better was not enough; we had to do better too. Veganism is not a diet, it is a lifestyle and I feel strongly that when we choose that lifestyle, we should choose to get involved with animal activism in some way. Eating a […]

Where Do You Call Home

Where Do You Call Home?

Since we have been living in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, I have noticed we say ‘back home’ a lot when we are talking about England. But our home is here in Cambodia now and we feel much more ‘at home’ here than we ever did in England. I have been thinking about the concept of home […]

Veganism Will Put Farmers Out Of Business | What About Vegan Farmers?

Will The Rise In Vegans Put Farmers Out Of Business?  This is a really important question. I believe that farmers are not our enemy. The system is our enemy. We have all – farmers included – been brought up to believe we need eggs, meat, and dairy to survive. But, to paraphrase James Aspey, while […]
