Are you living Groundhog Day?

Are you living Groundhog Day?

Most of you have seen the movie Groundhog Day where a weatherman lives the same day over and over again. Unfortunately this concept is not only found in a movies, but I’m sure that there are many people living each day in a very similar and systematic manner. / Read More »

Why Too Many Choices Can Paralyse You


Note: We’re excited to introduce you to our special guest writer, Evelyn Hill, a minimalist, a vegan and a super talented creative. You can find more of Evelyn’s work on her Twitter and Instgram.

I was at a beauty shop the other day, looking for a red lipstick to wear for a date with my husband. I just wanted a red lipstick, as mine had run out, that’s all. I wasn’t looking for anything else and in fact knew the one I wanted. It was supposed to be a quick run in and out.

An hour later, I was still in the shop. A salesgirl had cornered me (not a fan when that happens, frankly) and was trying to get me to try other red lipsticks. There were at least 50 that I could see, just from where I was standing.

About 20 minutes after that, I had left the store with the first lipstick I had in my hand. The one I had gone in there to buy. But I also left with a headache, the kind that pangs by having too many choices.

Choices plague us. / Read More »

Super Simple Vegan Peach, Macadamia and Coconut Crumble

This peach, macadamia and coconut crumble is so easy to make and such a great recipe to keep on hand when you’re craving something sweet, have unexpected guests arriving or are running late with dinner preparations. It takes no more than 30 minutes to make and is sure to please everyone!

I originally created this recipe for Food Matters at the end of last year but wanted to share it with you guys as well! It’s slowly but surely starting to warm up here (Australia) and this recipe is definitely something that I’ll be making over the summer months with the stone fruits. Nothing better than a dessert recipe that has very few  ingredients and simple instructions. / Read More »

High Quality Vegan Blogs

I still remember how hard it was to find quality resources when I first became vegan.

Sure, there have been some powerful films and documentaries but sometimes you’re in the mood to read a quick article to give you that boost of reassurance and a sense of belonging.

Tapping into vegan blogs is a great way to get fresh and unique content, written by passionate individuals.

However with the internet exploding in the last decade, it’s become a very crowded space.

It takes five minutes to set up a blog or a YouTube channel. With so many people creating content, it becomes challenging to find the good stuff.

Don’t get me wrong, I think it’s great that people want to spread the vegan message. But in order to stand out on the internet, you have to take your blog seriously. / Read More »

GF and Vegan Double Chocolate Chip Cookies

Gluten-free and vegan double chocolate chip cookies. Could it really be this easy?

Admittedly, since becoming vegan just over two years ago (we celebrated on the 28th of August YAY!), I haven’t done much baking. I’ve mainly relied on recipes that you can’t go wrong with like the Classic Apple Crumble, Baklava, Summer Trifle and Nut and Dat Stuffed Apples. But actual cakes, cookies and slices have made me nervous to try baking. The reason for that is because a lot of the recipes that I’ve seen use a lot of substitutes like vegan butter, vegan cream cheese etc but I generally stay away from them because we never eat those things normally. / Read More »
