Easy Vegan Brown Lentil Stew

Easy Vegan Brown Lentil Stew

I’ve been eating this super duper easy brown lentil stew (which so happens to be vegan) for as long as I can remember. It’s always been a staple in my family and it never gets old. As soon as Autumn creeps in, this meal becomes pretty much a weekly rotation. Quite cheap to make, super easy and relatively quick for how much yield you get. I like to make this meal in bulk and eat it over two days for lunch and dinner. I normally don’t freeze it because there’s potato in it but if you wanted to do so, you can swap the potatoes for carrots and/or celery and it will freeze really well. / Read More »


Each month we post conversations we have with cool people who live mindfully whether it’s living with less or being healthy without doing harm to others. This is not an interview series but more a down-to-earth catchup over a casual cup of tea.

Today we catch up with Lindsay Miles, passionate writer behind Treading My Own Path.

We’ve been following Lindsay’s blog for a little over a year now and love her tips on how to how to live a more sustainable lifestyle. Sustainability is an area we wish to improve in our lives so our chat with Lindsay came at a great time!

In this conversation, we learn about why Lindsay is so interested in sustainability, why she started blogging, and the value of being part of a community. / Read More »

Our Breakfast Superfood Smoothie

Superfood Smoothie

Ever since we started this journey and even before becoming vegan, we’ve been drinking smoothies. Some good, others bad, but have always enjoyed a thick, rich punch of goodness. We’ve experimented quite a bit and feel as though we have perfected quite a unique, and not so minimal, smoothie blend. There are some powerful superfoods like cacao, blueberries, hemp seeds, fermented brown rice protein and flaxseeds to maximise our nutrient intake as vegans first thing in the morning.

I’d like to go through and list all the ingredients and their benefits. The only smoothie that’s as healthy as this one that we have loved just as much is one we had in Byron Bay at Naked Treaties. They do some amazing smoothies, so if you find yourself in Byron Bay, it’s a must try! / Read More »

10 Quick Actions You Can Do Today To Live a Minimalist Vegan Lifestyle

What does it take to live a minimalist vegan lifestyle?

It doesn’t have to be this audacious aspiration. It all starts by taking small intentional steps.

In this post, we share 10 things you can do today to start your journey towards simplicity and mindfulness. Each action has an estimated timeframe for how long it will take to complete. Some actions might take a few hours whilst others will take you less than a minute to execute.

There are no rules to how you use this list. You can trial one or two and start slowly or you can block out a whole day and take action on all of the ideas.

The main thing is to remember that you don’t need to overwhelm yourself when aspiring the live in a particular way. Break it down and put one foot in front of the other and you’ll feel much better about it in the end. / Read More »

Creamy Pumpkin and Capsicum Penne

Creamy Pumpkin and Capsicum Penne

It actually feels like forever since I shared a recipe! Since we’ve dropped to one post a week, it’s made it less stressful with the launch of our store to make sure we keep up the content. This way we can also focus on producing better quality content and actually enjoy it as well! I’ve been itching to share this one with you as I’ve fallen in love with the flavours and the simplicity of it. It’s the super healthy take on the old (junk food) classic macaroni and cheese. I never ate this growing up but when I was creating this dish, that’s the first comparison that came to mind!

It’s full of rich, wintery and creamy flavours that work really well together. There’s not much in it which is very minimalist of me!

I’ve been buying these shishito capsicums (peppers) at the markets every week and love adding them to different dishes like stir frys and bakes. I know that they will be pretty tricky to find for some people, so I’d just swap them for chillies (medium heat) instead. Depending on how hot you like your meal, I’d adjust how many chillies you use. With the shishito ones, we were told that every 1 in 10 would be like a chilli, but honestly it feels like every 1 in 20. / Read More »
