Vegan Junk Food

As some people may already know, one of my good friends, Anna, and her partner are vegan. Before meeting them, I didn’t know much about veganism. Since they came into my life in 2013, I have spent time with them, educating myself about the vegan lifestyle and what it entails, which has been somewhat of…

Eat With A Friend Day

Today is Eat With A Friend Day! To honour this special occasion, this is exactly what I did. On our way to the light festival at Syon Gardens, my friend and I stopped off at at One Kew Road, Richmond, to have dinner. We both chose the spitroast chicken, drizzled in truffle and garlic sauce,…

Birthday Dinner

I haven’t posted on here for a bit, but this is something that’s worth shouting about. For my birthday a few weeks ago, my friend and I visited Cote Brasserie along London’s South Bank. I have a soft spot for French food so this lured me in. We had the chicken drizzled with garlic butter…

Scrambled Eggs and English Muffin

The title says it all. I love breakfast. I especially like going out for breakfast. And I especially like breakfast when it’s not cereal (no offence to cereal). The Hide in Ampthill (near my parents) is a little cafe that does great food. This breakfast was ideal after a run- it really helped restore my…

Mango and Banana Smoothie (with a hint of pineapple!)

  I made this rather delicious smoothie today. Unfortunately, I was unable to find straight- up mango so was forced to add some pineapple. I don’t think it had a huge effect on the flavour though. Here is the recipe (courtesy of allrecipes.co.uk): Serves: 2 1 banana 80g mango pieces 100g natural yoghurt 125ml orange…

Weekday Breakfast

Okay, so this really hasn’t got much relevance to anything. But seeing as I don’t really make much of breakfast usually, I thought I’d post this photo of yesterday’s offering. It was delicious! I really want the tea infuser- someone please get me this for my birthday :p
