Vegan Lentil & Mushroom Curry

Saturday, 30 September 2017

I lovveeeee Indian food, the flavour and all the spices are perfect for me! It is so easy to vegan'ise an Indian dish, most already are. Lentils are a dietary staple in the regions of India, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Nepal and so verstile with many ways to use them and so many different dishes to create with them. This curry is super easy to make and can be altered to your taste and any vegetable would work in this dish. This is a mild curry, perfect if you don't like hot dishes.

Elephant Sanctuary - Chiang Mai, Thailand.

Saturday, 23 September 2017

When you travel Thailand one of the things on everyone's bucket list is to see the gentle giant that is the Asian Elephant. We all know (or should know) that the parks which offer to the ride the elephants are very unethical and they are kept in bad conditions, being chained in a spot for hours, tortured into performing and taking a heavy weights on their backs for hours and hours on end with no rest.

If you want to experience these beautiful creatures up close then choose an elephant sanctuary. There are many so be sure to do your research before choosing.
I visited B.M.P Farm Elephant Project located just outside of Chiang Mai. When i visited they had 5 elephants in their care. We dressed in traditional Mahout (name for someone who works with elephants) clothing and bamboo hats, and where given a bag full of bananas. We fed the elephants and walked around the stunning farm with them, made traditional herbal Thai medicine for the elephants and then bathed them in the natural pool.

A Day in Photos #6 - Norwich

Saturday, 2 September 2017

Took a day trip to Norwich for lunch, shopping and an explore. Norwich has a great vibe and loads of places to eat for a vegan! Even found an all veggie/vegan supermarket. Managed to pick up tempe, which i've been looking for for ages! 
There are some great little independent shops. I found this lovely tea and coffee shop where they had all the herbs and flowers in jars and the would measure out loose tea for you to take home and also a variety of coffee beans which they could grind for you also. I was recommended by a friend of mine to go to Head in the Clouds, a kind of hippy shop. I loved it there! Bought some beautiful Tibetan prayer scarfs, crystals, jewellery and incense. Also a new small incense burner, perfect to take travelling.
