Farelli’s Trattoria Queenstown – Review

So this year for about five months we lived in Wanaka, New Zealand, doing a ski season. It was amazing, but vegan restaurants were few and far between. Especially considering we’d just come from Melbourne, which is crazy for vegans, the lack of places to […]

Vegan Tofu Fish Tacos With Kiwi Salsa

I wanted to try something a bit different for this recipe, and so for this, I took inspiration from the vegan fish tacos we had back at the start of the year at Smith & Daughters. I love a taco, and so I wanted to […]

Tropical Kiwi Chia Seed Pudding

I’ve been experimenting with chia seed puddings for a few years now. At first, I really just couldn’t stomach them and I didn’t quite see what the big fuss was. However, I’ve continued trying them every few months and now I have to say, I’m a fan.

Vegan Poppyseed Bagels

Vegan Poppyseed Bagels

Bagels.ย They can be used in so many different ways, and are so great as an alternative to a normal roll or even plain bread. I think that they’re underrated, and it’s time we used bagels more often.

Arguments Against Veganism – A Series

As any vegan will know, when you tell someone you’re vegan, you’re immediately met with a myriad of excuses from meat eaters about why they would never, or could never, go vegan. And as a vegan, you’ll know that’s exactly what they are – excuses.

Unlike our trip to Soul Burger, this wasnโ€™t planned. It was Samโ€™s birthday in May, and on this actual birthday, we ended up on the Sunshine Coast. Being that it was his birthday, it only felt right to go out for somewhere to eat. We […]
